  1. What relevancy does that have here? Just because OML hate was brought up doesn't mean it's rant time. Why can't this just stay in the shoutbox?
  2. Reanimation is definitely a remix album in the commonly assumed sense, Mike meant that it isn't just a typical remix album. That note never said it wasn't a remix album. This song isn't the same as Reanimation, but it's still a remix, they literally mixed the song again. Edit: I don't see the CD on their store, really hope I didn't miss it

    I will take the blame for that if it did end up affecting anything substantially, but to be completely honest, I highly doubt it did. Sure, now there's definitive proof of Adam saying he doesn't want it out there, but I'm pretty sure those older demos didn't slip his mind before it was brought up. At the very least, something would have been leaked again and someone would have put a stop to it after the fact (like with the DBS demos) instead of the hesitation to not release it at all, and we'd be in the exact same situation with whatever may have leaked next. There would be absolutely no way this wouldn't have eventually made it to Adam with how much the Linkin Park community likes demos and how interesting this demo is in general. I'm also going to justify asking about the already released stuff because I help moderate the official forum and I personally wanted to know what is and isn't allowed to be shared on there, and from personal experience, Lorenzo and Ana are not the quickest to respond. Who knows though, you might have been talking about someone else who asked him the same question and I'm defending myself for no reason

    Not that I'm pushing for the release or saying there isn't good reason, I completely understand the circumstances and that the band/Warner Bros. has the legal authority, but Chester isn't even involved with this track, why is that being thrown around like fact so much for a Xero track? Didn't the Rapology stuff happen after his passing?

    This is awesome stuff, hope it gets released at some point, but I completely understand not doing it at the moment. Regardless, it's great to have this chunk of Linkin Park history preserved. I'm so happy that the Linkin Park community is this involved in the preservation of the band. Trying to find info on other artists is often a pain, I often expect to be able to find answers to questions I have as simply as I do with Linkin Park
  6. Were these on the official channel at one point? I have 2003 episodes in a folder that I thought was mostly downloads right from the channel, but I download these all in 2015 so I might have been dumb and mixed in some unofficial uploads Edit: Linkinpedia lists Seed videos as LPUTV, but they are on the official channel as LPTV. Are there extended LPU versions? Edit 2: Going through some videos I've found recently, going to post them if I can't find them online anywhere
  7. I probably overreacted a bit considering what I was attempting to call out, I'm sorry about that, it just feels crappy to assume Chester thought the album/band sucked based on very minimal interactions, especially when he can't really defend himself on it anymore. Maybe I'm in denial or biased because it was basically the first LP-related release I was around for (got really into the band right after Minutes to Midnight came out), but I really enjoy most Out of Ashes. I see the term "butt-rock" thrown around a lot as an insult in other places outside of the Linkin Park community, and I don't really get how a term like that isn't meant to be insulting, but obviously you didn't come up with the term and it's understandable that it's kinda tied to certain bands now regardless of what it means. I honestly like a good chunk of Nickelback and Three Days Grace
  8. I've noticed that almost anytime you personally don't like something, it seems that it's automatically bad. I can understand statements like the acoustic not being proper acoustic or that it didn't get a ton of promotion, but that entire post seems super opinionated ("butt-rock", "cheesy") and is full of assumptions ("He knew it sucked since late 2005, trust me", "He said nah I think they’re just my own thing. He knew DBS was shit.") that ultimately don't really even affect how the music itself sounds. You brought up stuff about Styles of Beyond and Mike regarding Fort Minor and then mentioned Post Traumatic, but disregard that Mike released his Post Traumatic stuff under his own name, similar to how you say Chester wanted to do with his songs from 2017. Does that mean The Rising Tied or Welcome were shit? I saw you mention in the shoutbox that Dead by Sunrise pages on Linkinpedia need more info and that you know it all well enough to write it yourself, but I honestly don't think you'd be able to write up an article without keeping it completely unbiased and introduce subtle jabs to the stuff you don't like. Maybe I'm going a bit overboard on this response, but the way that was all written feels really insulting to those involved and anyone who actually likes Dead by Sunrise, and I've seen things you've posted in the past to know that it probably wasn't written that way on accident
  9. After a lot of trial and error, several Google searches, scanning Mike's blog on the Internet Archive, layering rotated and skewed images over one another, and pixel changes one by one, I believe I've completely recreated all of the original art shown in the video as close as possible. The most questionable parts are Rob's hair (what should be brown or black), Joe's shorts (same issue), and Dave's hat and shirt (the video is really unfocused on him). Dave also doesn't have the same color shirt in the promo art and game art. Next I want to tackle the Hybrid Theory art, which will probably be both easier and harder. I'll have these as a base considering one set is based on the other, but I also have less references for accuracy, and Dave looks incomplete
  10. Mega bump, but I've never really seen this pointed out before. I was trying to make Discord emoji of the 8-bit heads not too long ago, was using the sprites from the game as a base. I always knew the sprites in game were weirdly resized and kinda stretched, but it wasn't until I was trying to touch them up and cross checking some stuff I had posted in here years ago that I notice how botched the band's art is in promo art (less so) and the game (terribly) compared to Mike's original art in the videos This is an attempt at a 1:1 remake of Rob from the blurry shot in one of the videos, followed by promo art, and finally how it looks in game:
  11. I'll get a closer shot and a comparison picture to my other copy later tonight. While the art looks the same in the photo, it's a different material and shaped slightly different as well Edit: Suspected bootleg is on the right
  12. I do use LPCatalog, nearly my entire collection is marked on there (I need to add some stuff). I assumed it was bootleg because it wasn’t on there, but there’s a few things that are still missing on the site so I figured there was still some small chance. I got my legitimate one off eBay as well, but it was from a collector with all the other stuff being legit as well. I don’t care if it is bootleg or not, I brought it up because I hadn’t seen any bootlegs that match it specifically. I can probably take a photo when I get home, it’s closest in appearance to the first release, but the cover is cardboard and not a sticker and the CD doesn’t match any of the releases
  13. http://linkinpedia.com/index.php?title=One_Step_Closer Under the live versions section for "One Step Closer (featuring Jonathan Davis) (Live)" from LPU 4, the date and link are incorrect, referencing the Roxy Collision Course show. Correct link: https://lplive.net/shows/2004/20040813/
  14. Unless there's two versions of the mixtape and one isn't well documented, I'm pretty sure I managed to get a hold on a bootleg. It wasn't even an intended purchase, came with a deluxe edition of The Rising Tied, but it doesn't match my other copy and the disc is definitely off
