He's evil. And dumb.
Can we please refrain from insulting the journalist in this thread? People make mistakes. It happens.
omg omg omg, that would be awesome
Like this thread ever existing to begin with.
Love how this gets flipped back on us, as if we were the only fan-site to report on it. The dude had photos and partial video of him speaking to Shinoda, and is a journalist/blogger. What were we supposed to do? Ignore it? We had no clue that it was a complete and total misrepresentation of what Shinoda actually said.
Nice. Really, really nice.
Ah, damn. Oh well. Carry on.
Two words: Damage control.
I don't know why anyone would trust a statement from management regarding anything that hasn't been announced when their standard operating procedure has been "deny, deny, deny...oh j/k it's announced now" for years.
They could just be covering up the slip up
Maybe you're right, maybe you're not. But considering I didn't have anyone from management banging down my doors to remove the news, and considering I had to actually write them to get a comment...I trust that Robert had misinterpreted Mike during the conversation. In the past when leaks of embargoed news occurred, I'd get emails immediately to delete the story (every single time). No such thing happened here.
If the statement from management turns out to be damage control, and it turns out a surprise album does come out in a few weeks than so be it. I'll be right alongside everybody else celebrating and being happy that we're getting even more new music. But I'm not just going to instantly assume "oh it came from management, it must be a coverup" just because it's management (they're not bad people, and I don't know why people act like they are). I'm pretty sure if this had any weight to it, I would've either had a gag order not to say anything, or been told to immediately remove the story. Neither was done.
Terrible.. Terrible misquote. Not your fault Derek, however to the guy who posted it.. Make sure you have 100% legit information if you're going to post something like that onto the Internet about a friggin new album.
I've been checking here a few times a day since and it got a lot of our hopes up for something new.
I'll just say I dont understand the concerns about google glass. Hidden cameras have existed for a damn long time. With the invent of smart phones and even cellphones in general secrect recordings have been a thing ever since.
I just dont understand it. You can clearly tell that someone is wearing Glass or not. You can tell if its recording.
But anyway besides that people make mistakes. It is disappointing that there is no new album.
But not surprising. Some people were rightly suspicious but not me.
Definitely not surprising. I hope some of the Mall tracks are released through LPU as I doubt we'll be getting an official OST release.
Wellllllllllllllllll that's slightly disappointing, I wasn't expecting much anyways so no biggie.
Closing the discussion on this since the initial purpose of this thread was null and void.
