  1. Tom doing "Storytellers" style acoustic shows would be pretty rad and interesting
  2. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Yeah I think Tom lost grip on reality around 2005 and nothing I've seen since then has made me think he ever got it back. My personal hope is that he got abducted by aliens around that time and they replaced him with an alien imposter (who happens to be deteriorating at a rate faster than humans) and someday they'll return him.
  3. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    We grew out of Blink? Blink themselves grew out of simple pop almost 15 years ago before crawling back to a shitty derivative shell of their former sound! Love ya @Ghent feels good to be having these conversations again it's been awhile
  4. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Anybody else see their Spotify year-end feature where it shows you the bands and songs you listened to most? I was confused about why Blink were in my most listened to bands until I remembered Cali Deluxe came out this year. I really tried to get into it haha then forgot it existed.
  5. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    I always thought the production sounded more "light" and shiny compared to Untitled so I guess I always assumed it was from its own session. Definitely wish they would've recorded Letter To Elise though, man that was fucking great.
  6. WHAT IF: Enema was released today

    Hard to say, I mean humor goes in cycles and Blink's humor was definitely a part of that late 90s/early 00s era. Sex and crazy extreme shit like Jackass and just overall "I can't believe I'm seeing/hearing this!!" was the root of a lot of comedy at that time. That being said, I don't think their humor was just outright misogynist or anything, they were ALWAYS the butt of their own jokes. Even that line in Dumpweed "I need a girl that I can train," in context, was the absurd thought of a dude who is too insecure to handle a relationship so he runs away. And the Party Song, which yeah has some dumb judgmental lyrics, has the punchline that he'll only think he's too good for this girl until the next time he gets turned down by yet another girl. And the anti-bro-culture lines score them points too. I don't know, any time I hear some newly woke person talk about how Blink were retroactively offensive I'm reminded of the one line that I think encapsulates their entire worldview: "I know I'm pathetic"
  7. Agree with you guys /\ I still think if he was more sane he could've kept doing Blink and in his down time turned this obsession into a hilarious documentary series Anthony Bourdain style, but with this stuff instead of food, where he just travels around and researches phenomena and local legends and stuff. It would've honestly come across much more legitimate that way too haha. But something is off with the guy at this point as we can all tell.
  8. Podesta + the guys who joined TTS = a more impressive group than I ever expected, that's for sure. Doesn't mean what they're doing is real or makes any sense though.
  9. The TTS Academy Scam Thread

    Like I said before, I think "You Made It Weird" with Pete Holmes would be a perfect podcast for just this type of conversation. He loves going deep on crazy subjects so he would let Tom give his spiel but he's also an absolute goofball who would probably make Tom feel less defensive and rattled. And he keeps the conversation moving between subjects and has talked about being a Blink fan in the past so I think we'd get way more interesting (to us) topics. Seems like sometimes people kinda make the rounds on podcasts when they have something to promote so maybe he'll end up doing that one too, never know.
  10. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    I got through about 40 minutes. Not as insane as I was expecting but definitely not impressive either haha. He seems manic and hilariously unprepared to talk about things at a deeper level than just spouting off phrases, but he held it together ok. I have no faith in any of this being real haha, but he very obviously believes it is. If nothing else it's clear why he thought Blink was a joke and never wanted to spend any time or energy on it. He legitimately believes he's in on some of the most privileged information in world history. Oh Tom.
  11. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    I feel like it would be much cooler to see Tom go on the You Made It Weird podcast. Pete Holmes would go deep with him on UFOs but also get him to talk about stuff we actually care about haha. Also yeah immediately Rogan is a little hostile AKA letting Tom's bit about his fitness and tough handshake die completely. Very awkward, seems like he went into this knowing he was gonna shit on him. Oh well.
  12. The TTS Academy Scam Thread

    Hell no
  13. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    I know this was just some random thing Mark had to sit through for 10 minutes but still he just seems burnt out in stuff like this lately. You would think he'd have some funny stories from the shoots or look back more fondly or even crack a smile or two or something but quite a few anecdotes are just things he was annoyed about or things he would "not want to do again" haha. Nitpicky I know, maybe he was in a bad mood. He just doesn't seem to have much fun nowadays in public appearance stuff like this. He is quite "CYNICAL" get it?
  14. Something's wrong

    I mean, his kids seem strange to me I guess but it's kind of all relative to a certain extent. Like the way she dresses and stuff is definitely not the norm for kids that age, but with the music stuff is there any evidence that this is going to be "pushed" as like a single or album to pop radio or anything? Because Travis and Feldy obviously have the means to do that. But it doesn't seem that way, it seems more like she has an interest in music and wanted to make this stuff for fun, but since Travis is insanely rich he can go way above and beyond what a regular kid could do. Instead of a dad being like "oh cool you like music, here's a keyboard/guitar for Christmas" or whatever, it's "oh cool you like music, come to work with me and Uncle Feldy will help you make some songs, I'll buy a music video for you and your friends too" If there's a plan to push her out there as a pop star that's different, but from the look of it I would guess it's just one of those perks insanely rich kids get.
