  1. Solo: A Star Wars Story

    I'll give this one a shot when it leaks eventually. Seems polarizing based on initial reactions, which I'd prefer over a play-it-safe approach like TFA.
  2. Hey guys, my favourite era of Blink's guitar is probably off TOYPAJ. I really love how prominent the guitar sounds in riffs like Reckless Abandon. I'm hoping I can just get an amp and a couple other things that would help recreate this sound, ideally on a budget. I currently own a G&L Legacy Tribute stratocaster, which is this model: My amp sucks dick. It's a Spyder III and sounds like plastic. Alternatively, getting an Enema sound would be awesome as well. Edit - did some research. Looks like the amp that Tom used for most of the earlier days was a Marshall JCM 900 amp - is this what he used on TOYPAJ?
  3. I wonder how bad the situation got with Tambor. Are we talking Christian Bale rant on the Terminator set?
  4. Annual Top 10 Blink songs.. (2018)

    Stockholm Syndrome Not Now Always Going Away to College What's My Age Again? Wasting Time Waggy Apple Shampoo Dammit Josie Surprisingly no TOYPAJ songs. I think that album's whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I have great memories of it and still listen to it on a regular basis, but there's not one song that stands out as being better than the rest.
  5. The blink-182 Safe Space

    Cali and Deluxe have some good songs, collectively they'd make a decent album. If they take their time and change up their production, they could release a great album.
  6. Video Games Thread

    Link's Awakening is really underrated. One of the better Zelda games, IMO. I haven't played them since a kid, but Ages/Seasons on GBC were a lot of fun too. I've attempted the original Zelda on NES and got about 3-4 dungeons in and then got frustrated. I could be wrong, but don't you restart the whole game if you die? I think I'd need a guide or at least a map on where to go if I attempt playing it again. Have never played Zelda 2 which is a side scroller right? Is it worth playing and what's the best way to play it (maybe hack my mini NES?). I replayed Link to the Past on the SNES Classic recently and the game has held up really well. Probably my favourite game of all time. Also replayed Ocarina and Majora's Mask on the 3DS a few years ago, both were really enjoyable and the tweaks/remastering they did worked really well. And Link Between Worlds on both difficulties, loved that game. Never played Zelda games after N64, didn't own a Gamecube for Wind Waker and I got Twilight Princess on Wii, put in 6-7 hours and half of it was the tutorial and then I got stuck at a really dumb spot and was too lazy to look up a solution and gave up lol. I need to get around to playing all of the ones I missed at some point, which would take a ridiculous amount of time if I do every game (which would be original Zelda, Zelda 2, Minish Cap, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, Windwaker, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword - probably skip it, and Breath of the Wind. Jesus christ).
  7. The Official Gaslight Anthem thread

    I think the standout tracks are Come Wander With Me, Etta James, Her Majesty's Service, and Neptune. The second half of Neptune is probably the highlight of the album to me.
  8. Box Car Racer or alternate blink timeline? Pick one.

    Tom would have gone off into the deep end regardless, IMO. He's too egotistical and crazy. He had a mulligan with the reunion and still managed to fuck things up pretty quickly. I'd say it's Boxcar Racer or 2-3 good, dark, Jerry Finn albums (including Self-Titled) before Tom went crazy, then Travis has his plane crash and you have a similar timeline of Neighborhoods onwards. I'd obviously take the 2-3 good Blink albums over Boxcar.
  9. Is it just me or was the guitar part of the bridge of Tiny Voices recycled for the intro to Give Me One Good Reason? That might be the first time I noticed Tom recycle a guitar riff.
  10. The Official Gaslight Anthem thread

    This album has grown on me a lot. There are a couple of songs I generally skip (Proof of Life, Sleepwalkers), but everything else is really great. Come Wander With Me has probably grown on me the most, it's a really beautiful song.
  11. I don't claim to know anything about production or recording, but it is very easy to hear the difference between Travis' drumming on Neighborhoods/DED and California and Deluxe. They sound significantly worse.
  12. Blink Vegas Residency

    They had the chance to do a 20 year anniversary show for Dude Ranch in 2017 and, outside of a Twitter post by Mark, it fell off by the wayside.
  13. Blink Vegas Residency

    I thought they unofficially retired it because of DJ AM? I could be wrong.
  14. Blink Vegas Residency

    Mark can barely sing/play the intro to Cynical, Online Songs would likely be an unmitigated disaster.
  15. Blink Vegas Residency

    My thoughts too. Would love for them to play all of the non-single tracks from Dude Ranch to Self-Titled. I actually think the vocals on certain songs like M+Ms and Waggy would be suitable for Mark, they're all sung pretty low which wouldn't put a strain on his voice.
