  1. I appreciate, but at this moment, to leave my country I would need to sell part of my stuff first anyway haha.
  2. Yes I'm working in a complete list as I write this message. I think I can update the post with a link later today. Thanks for your support. I don't want to live my country, finding a job would be just fine but it seems that everybody is struggling with the same issue.
  3. I live in Uruguay, South America. I don't know about that, if I have to sell my stuff to get through this, I will have to. Need to survive after all.
  4. Hello everyone, I think this could be a long read, I'm sorry beforehand. This is very hard for me guys, so please don't think I'm milking my collecting to get money. This is serious, please read before judging me. I hope some of the hardcore members of the LP Live remember me. I used to be very active during my good days, I think my last post or comment here was when Chester passed away. Well the thing is, that possibly since Chester's passing my life had been pretty bad to be honest. Just to put you all into context, a few months later of Chester's passing lost my job, which is pretty common I know but that didn't end as expected, had to wait some months to search for a new job because I was under some kind of insurance, anyway, after that my mom got pretty sick, she had a brain surgery which went pretty good but she was almost 2 months under intensive care in the hospital plus 2 more months to be sent home, and after that myself taking care of here all alone. She ended up with sequels in the right side of her body, obviously she couldn't walk and had serious issues to express words. After some months of care in home, she passed away. Was very sudden and unexpected as she was very well, starting to talk again and we were working hard to start walking. She actually she walked a few steps minutes before dying. And here I am, 20 months unemployed, with a rent to pay and almost without any good incomes as working as freelancer is not giving me enough money and I can't find a freaking job as my country is not doing very good right now and there are so many foreigns that companies prefer to sign them than us, but I don't want to talk about that, it's not foreign people's fault though. Anyway, I had decided to sell all my Linkin Park collection. This is heart breaking because I bet most of you know how much I love LP, some of my friends know that is almost impossible for me listening their music now because I break when I hear Chester's voice and for me selling my collection is terrible but I have to do it or end living in the streets in a few months and I'm not lying. I know selling all my collection will help me to pay rent for a few more months until a job appears to start all over again. I hope you guys understand my situation. I would like to get some help because I don't want to sell my stuff on eBay first because they have fees and secondly because I don't want my stuff reach re-sellers' hands I would like to sell my stuff to other Linkin Park fans that I know they will take care of everything. Also would like to know if someone is kind enough to help me to price the stuff at least a general idea as I don't want to look like I'm selling everything overpriced. Of course I know some of the prices of the things I got, but some stuff I'm not very sure, I would like some updated costs to don't overprice the stuff and if some of you are interested to get the items I would like to talk about it because here is the best place to find the best LP fans. Regarding the items list. It's pretty big, I know some of you have bigger collections but mine I think is around 300 items or probably more if I count guitar picks, t-shirts, I don't know, everything. I think that's all. I apologize if this post is against the rules, I hope is not. Greetings to all and thanks for reading.
  5. It's like you are trying to find a correct explanation right? Like, you would never expect that from Chester. Not now at least. He was so happy, healthy, confident, I don't know. It's like all lose a complete sense. I don't understand. I'm totally devastated. I can't imagine the sadness in all LP family, and his family in particular with such small children.
  6. I've read that the first Single is out in January, which means that the Album will be out in March. It's really good that they are releasing the album a couple of months before the start of their tour. I hope they play more than 2 new songs in the tour setlist. In the other hand, they sold out Estadio Nacional in Peru in just 1 week which is insane and shows how much South America need them here. I hope they play new songs for those awesome fans.
  7. I feel everyday less fan of Linkin Park. Since A Thousand Suns era ended, they changed a lot, like they put a new chip inside their own heads (Mostly Mike and Chester as the main faces in the band). They started to sell us as fans: Laptops, Clocks, Cars, Motorbikes, Software, Clothes, PCs, etc. With that, probably the 50% of the interviews after ATS were about their collaboration with companies and how they worked to create art for i don't know a car, or how they built the software to make new music, or how they improved something for a PC, etc etc. More about brands and merchandise and less about what made them what they are now, les about music. That was the main reason why our Wretches And Kings staff stopped the updates on November of 2014. We really got tired of translating "shit" about them that was almost 98% unrelated with Linkin Park, and their music. Standard interviews about the same shit constantly let us realize that this band was going to somewhere that we were not enjoying, that we are not interested to follow. Got friends, many friends selling their collection, because they hate Linkin Park now, i got others really confused, some feel really guilty because they can't manage this constant wave of "buy this" from Linkin Park, not taking in account that their last 2 albums are very very very weak musically, and the lyrics are shit with a couple of exceptions in both albums. I don't like this, i don't like this Linkin Park 2015, call me a hater, im ok with that.
  8. Don't know what to expect about the next album. But i hope they really consider something that they can actually play live. Because the last 2 albums have great songs to play live (I'll Be Gone) but seems like they are not able to do it (All For Nothing). And agree with Mark about the sound of the next album. I guess is time for them going a couple of steps back and do what they really like to do, something more pop friendly, a mix between ATS and MTM would be good. But they really need to work on lyrics, last two albums (more THP than LT) are very poor in terms of lyrics compared with MTM or ATS.
  9. Amen Mark, second every word you said. Would like to add that the fans voted setlist is another bullshit, they know and we know that they know that fans will select weird shit and probably a 180º turn in terms of setlist. So coming from the most lazy band in the world, is very hard to believe for me that they would be open to that idea in the near future.
  10. Do not expect new songs, they need a month to rehearse a new song, and they just had a week before the STP shows and another week after flying to Brazil. Hope they play new songs, but first i really hope they change the Setlist because is awful now. Was amazing during the European Tour, but after 30 shows its just horrible.
  11. Seems pretty much confirmed that Malakian will play Rebellion tonight. A friend not related with LP or SOAD came from nowhere and told me "Malakian will play with Linkin Park tonight". A SOAD friend told me the same thing and with the Astat comment i think is pretty much confirmed.
  12. Linkin Park is one of the most lazy bands in terms of live shows i ever seen. They are fine playing the same setlist for 5 months without any problem. Even contradict themselves in terms of "Playing Singles for Festivals" because are the most popular songs and "Playing some other stuff" for headliner tours... False. They are just playing almost the same shitty setlist since May! I just can't accept this anymore, im fuckin tired of this. They had a month between the Promo Tour in Europe and the Carnivores Tour and they just added 2 songs? Where is the innovation, the visceral, the loud, the carnivore Linkin Park? Im not asking the band play Figure 09, QWERTY, Given Up, Blackout, APFMH, From The Inside and By Myself in the same setlist, but they can freaking rotate the songs, surprise fans, rotate setlists, play instrumental songs. I do not believe that the Carnivores Tour be fucking amazing every night as Chester said, and i do not believe that they are really enjoying the tour when they are playing the same songs every single night since May, with just little changes. Changes that almost every night came from Mike Shinoda. And about the information of the 30STM and AFI shows, i like the idea. Are making the pre-show posts a bit more interesting taking in account that the Carnivores Tour is the worst LP tour to date. Im with you "Soul", you have my support.
  13. Mike shared his microphone with a fan during Faint to sing his rap part. Not sure which verse, i will try to confirm it with my friend.
  14. I'm doing the post of this show for my site, and i found GATS... Holy mother of synchronization... The intro is great but GATS sounds horrible to me after the second guitar enters. Maybe is not the best video/audio to talk about this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvKAW8X9f7s
  15. I don't know why i like the setlist, but i don't like the way they are playing the setlist. 27 songs for a Linkin Park setlist is amazing but 7 or maybe more songs are partially played, without the second verse? One of the most important bands in the world after 14 years still playing really short setlist compared with other bands...
