In the last couple of weeks Mike has been giving the fans' messages/puzzles to solve involving the new Linkin Park album. Things are finally happening in the Linkin Park world! We have been given four messages from Mike so far and some of them were a bit tricky to solve. I think the idea with these clues is brilliant, it really makes everything more exciting, and I'm looking forward to the new Linkin Park album even more. That and the new LPTV episodes, news of any kind, a date for the release of the new album, show dates, single and music video dates and more, this is what I think is fun when you're a fan of a band.

I remember how excited I was when Linkin Park was about to release Meteora. Every week when I came home from school, I'd watch a new episode of LPTV. And I remember how exciting it was when I first heard a teaser of the intro for their new single, "Somewhere I Belong", and when I finally heard the entire song on the intro page of, I had goosebumps after listening to it. I felt the same thing when they released Minutes to Midnight. It was fun watching all the new LPTV episodes and when I heard a bit of the intro for "What I've Done", I remember that I thought that the piano playing was really haunting, and that it sounded very different from what I've heard from Linkin Park before.

I've been a fan of Linkin Park since 2000, I was only twelve years old when I became a fan. I was about to be a teenager, and I was changing and so was my music taste. I still listened to all the music that I thought was good, it didn't matter what genre it was. However, it was different with Linkin Park, I became a fan, and I got inspired by them, they are my role models. They are the reason I got interested in music, I started to sing and write my own songs, and I also wanted to create music, I downloaded music programs like eJay and other loop based programs. I've grown up with Linkin Park, and I'm so grateful that they make music, so I can have something to look forward to, and get inspired by and feel a lot of happy positive feelings. You can read the story how I discovered Linkin Park's music here, it's a shortened version of all the memories I have from that time. I can write an entire page of wonderful memories from when I was twelve years old, when I started to listen to Linkin Park, that I keep in my brain and no one can take those away.

Below are the messages that Mike has released so far.
