  1. man, that’s disappointing. it sounds silly but i always appreciated how mark and tom had such stable, loving relationships and seemed to value that. they’d all been married for almost two decades. and if it’s not working, it isnt, and that’s ok. but kind of a bummer if true...

    idk i think cynical is perfect the way it is. it’s the only blink song i’d take with me from this era...even if it does sound suspiciously like linoleum by NOFX lol

    it’s uncool to be like nevermind rocks but man it really rocks. just a blast from start to finish. territorial pissings is forever my fav. in utero is rad as well and i’ve yet to get into bleach. i also think mtv unplugged is wildly good, illustrating just how strong/creative that band was, as well as just how soulful cobain could be

    was the australian tour the one in may 1998 or so? or perhaps a year earlier? if i recall we don’t have a ton of dates between the recording and release of dude ranch

    haven't updated everything @Thibaut182 added recently, but did update the rest of 2017/18 in the timeline -- no one cares about right now, but it's important haha

  7. Music Club Wk1 - Charly Bliss - Guppy

    hey all i chose this album like kay mentioned cause i don't think it's too far off from peoples' tastes here... it's weezer-esque pop punk. it's also a helluva lotta fun IMO. i'll get the ball rolling with a mini review! by and large, this is a collection of really strong songs with killer hooks and some really rad instrumentation all-around... a lot of fun guitar parts, and the drumming is massive too. and since this is a blink board, i figured most might not have a problem with some whiny, adenoidal singing. my gf haaaaates the singer... she thinks she sounds like tommy pickles or she's trying too hard. and i've heard stuff about how singing like that can permanently fuck up your voice, so i'm not so sure of it either. but layered atop the loud-ass guitars, it really stands out and gives the band something unique. the only negatives to me for the album is the cover itself... it's atocious haha. the jacket is really cute though, it had so much going for it lol. stand out tracks: glitter (my fav), percolator, DQ, scare u

    i don’t think either DED or neighborhoods stand as great efforts. neighborhoods has stronger songs despite the way it came together, but it’s got clunkers and bad throwbacks too. DED always felt rushed to me and i don’t like almost all of it (save for pretty little girl, which is an inspired tune from tom, despite yelawolf). half the time, i forget DED exists. still, id prefer both to cali...this was the outcome i didn’t want for this band, where they become indistinguishable from the rest

    nice catch — i couldn’t make out his handwriting for shit lol. a rolling stone story from 2000 specifically mentions an airport: "Adam's Song," Blink's current single, is a suicide note set to music, but Hoppus says he wrote it about being lonely on tour. The couplet "I couldn't wait till I got home/To pass the time in my room alone" originally ended "to get off the plane alone." "Tom and Travis always had girlfriends waiting back home, so they had something to look forward to at the end of the tour," Hoppus explains. "But I didn't, so I was lonely on tour. But then I got home and it didn't matter, because there was nothing there for me anyway."

    i only heard the singles, but that's great to hear. never saw a band seemingly dismantle its own fame/success so deliberately with those few albums haha

    just a fact, man

    i don't think there's anything inherently wrong with using extra songwriters. it's just that i think mark/matt were strong songwriters in their own right and they were just lazy. it's easy to go to a max martin/john feldmann and ask him to write you a hit. the other problem with california and especially cali deluxe is that the vast majority of the songs aren't good at all. i'd say the first six songs on california -- cynical > built this pool -- are pretty worthwhile, because they really do set the stage for a big, nostalgic blink comeback album, and the songs aren't that bad. then it just devolves rapidly from there IMO, and cali deluxe is the worst of the worst. another issue is that if they want to corral feldmann in for a big blockbuster comeback record that's fine. but it's looking like they're about to do it again. and it's becoming glaringly obvious matt doesn't have any say in the band... he looks miserable onstage
  13. ALL!

    all is awesome, glad to see them get some love i love all of their late 80s stuff, specifically allroy's revenge. she's my ex is one of my favorite early pop punk tunes, and mary is incredibly underrated too: i never got into their 90s work (which was more successful, if i'm not mistaken?) but i looooove the EPs and first two albums
