    The Menzingers - new album

    Thanks dude. I'll throw On the Impossible Past when I'm done with lunch and head back into work. I'm sure I'll dig it. ATP is great. Love it. Feel like I've been living under a rock since this band exploded. Better late than never.

    What was the turning point for Blink's change in image?

    I can't fathom anyone not liking untitled. Such a great sound, plus all the memories it sparks. They had some good songs prior to that album but they don't hold up to the greatness of untitled.

    Pretty Little Girl (rap aside) is the best Tom song post-reunion IMO. The lyrics are also more mature and fit modern Blink well.

    The Menzingers - new album

    I’d start with On the Impossible Past, it stands out as their strongest album IMO. Then go either After the Party or Rented World (ATP is more produced, both are great though) and then Chamberlain Waits when you get bored of those albums.

    Good song, very underrated and definitely don't understand the hate. I'd put it right below Natives and Kaleidoscope, tied with WIWY, DED as best post reuinion.

    Same! I don’t want it to end. It’s weird, but sometimes I go back to Valentine just to hang out. Get a haircut, have a wild drunk night at the saloon, take a bath (deluxe of course), and get a room for the night. It’s still kind of my home base. In no other game I’ve ever played would I go out of my way to do completely inconsequential, mundane things like that, just for fun, that didn’t involve wild stunts of some kind lol

    unpopular opinion: "love is dangerous" is the best post-reunion blink song. i think it carries on that "blink meets the cure" sound they left off with just before the breakup, shows solid musicianship across the board, and is lyrically mature/relevant for their adult fan base.

    i know it seems like i havent updated the main post in a while, and that's true. i've been working on other stuff. but i wanted to post to say thank you to everyone who keeps posting in this thread. work on the main website spinoff is ongoing, here's a screenshot of a work-in-progress main page. my friend is helping me work on it to where each "day" will have its own individual page where we can store flyers/posters/ticket stubs. i'm not sure when this will be done, but i just wanted to post an update.

    Yeah, I've put in so many hours and am still doing the storyline, fully interested and engaged. One of my favorite games of all time already, no question. Sometimes I hate huge maps. Like Zelda: BotW I was annoyed by the map size. It felt huge just for the sake of being huge. The RDR2 map is enormous, but you want to live in every piece of it. It's ALL interesting to me and never feels overwhelming or annoying. Just riding your horse from location to location is fun.

    i was going to say, a single date that far out from CA in the midwest. doesn't make sense for august 1995. they didn't hit the road for the good times tour until september, and that route was southerly.

    I’m just wondering if Jose will take the sabbatical, or jump on another project. I know Bayern aren’t in the best place right now, and Real Madrid aren’t looking so pretty anymore at the moment either; I personally think he should try to go back to Inter tbh though.

    Also, one last thing, @silly_billy are those your posters, or a person you know? I've been searching for that one for some time

    @Thibaut182@daveyjones It should also be noted that blink cancelled, thanks to a couple of Rockford natives who frequented that venue. I got the flyer in Rockford on Saturday, so Davey Jones, you can expect scans in the near future. I'm also working on a small lot of stuff from 95/96 that I'll let you know when I get.

    I think I get where you're coming from. You listen to a lot of alt stuff on the radio, and where it's all cool sounding and what not, it's all just kind of random stuff you can't relate to, but sounds good. Blink panders more, and not necessarily a bad way, the audience. The everyday life, etc.

    What I mean is that they've always been a band that people from 15-25 years old can easily relate to. Even the smiley face album and Neighborhoods are kinda like that to an extent but with way more mature themes, which makes them relatable for adults too. There are still people that can relate to California. Hell, even I still relate to nearly all the songs, just I can't stand the majority of how the album sounds. I don't view themselves as being too serious. Perhaps personality wise I agree, but their songs aren't as serious as +44, Boxcar Racer, AVA and the previous two blink albums. Majority of us on these boards might not relate to who blink are right now because I definitely agree, I love who blink used to be. I loved their humour back then. I loved the jokes that they'd talk about on the stage, even during the reunion. Hilarious band. I loved that they gave no flying fucks about how shit they sounded live too. If you're talking about all that, then yeah I agree. But I mean just the California album. Even if it's shitty teenage stuff that none of us don't wanna listen to anymore, there will always be people that will get into blink and think the same way about the music as we once did. As for people like us, we'll always have the old blink stuff to listen to for that. I remember Tom going on about how he wanted AVA to be this band that saved peoples lives. But he already had that with blink. Blink are still gonna write music (co-write with others should I say) that people will listen to and be inspired by, even if most of us on these boards don't like what they did with California.

    Blink inspired me to not ever take yourself too seriously, and even famous people with influence can not take themselves too serious. While also having some of the most unique and awesome music out there. Now they take themselves very seriously, are a bunch of vegan hipsters with sticks constantly lodged up their ass when dealing with fans/critics, play like every other band, and can't write good music anymore. Not sure what you're getting at.

    Might as well give him a shot - whats the worst that can happen. I would still prefer someone we can trial and maybe hire full time in the summer - but i guess its a weird part of the season to get someone in.

    Although I hate how they went about California, there is never any denying how inspirational blink can be. They might be 40-50 writing similar songs they grew out of writing about 15 years ago, but at the end of the day, those very same songs are stuff that teenagers & young adults relate to. Good for blink. If it wasn't for them, I don't know what the hell I'd be doing. They're a massive reason why I do what I do. Blink always will be some kind of inspiration to me. California definitely has its bright points. Bored to Death is a quality song. I'm glad it exists. Plus I love songs like LA, Bottom of the Ocean, Long Lost Feeling, San Diego and HISALP. I even love Built This Pool. Glad that song exists too. Blink might possibly do a California Part 3. But I know there will be about 5 songs I'll love. I'll just add them to a playlist with the tracks I've just mentioned. That'll be my California album. Did the same thing with Neighborhoods mixed in with a couple of solo Tom tracks & AVA tracks.

    The song that saved my life is I'm In A Hurry To Get Things Done by Alabama.

    I've learned every song and album ever released has saved somebody's life. Also it's considered insensitive and ignorant to scoff at. I hate people
