    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    some of y’all here make wild assumptions. he’s what, 15 or 16? i had a great relationship with my parents and still do. if they wanted to go to a theme park i’d say yes for sure, those times are special and few and far between as you get older. i know next to nothing about marks family but i get the gist he’s just a good dad who likes disney and has enough money to treat his family to it whenever he pleases. nothing wrong with that
  3. looooove that article. felt like such a breath of fresh air after years and years of sporadic activity and forgotten promises. and like oli said, one of the very few times mark has kept it 100% real. that and the '06 b182.com interview. it felt so good as a fan to finally know what was going on, and that we were by and large right
  4. what... is he even trying to say?

    Favourite Blink Lyric of all time?

    this. GATC’s chorus takes the cake for me as my top blink lyrics. the band could be wacky, but at their core they were unabashedly sentimental. take for example wasting time: “maybe if i act real tough / she’d let me hold her hand”. it’s not a far cry from the beatles’ i wanna hold your hand, just has other lyrics about farting lol heres some more of mine: ”this room is bored of rehearsal, im sick of the boundaries, i miss you so much” “You're cold with disappointment / While I'm drowning in the next room / The last contagious victim of this plague between us / i’m sick with apprehension / I'm crippled from exhaustion / And I dread the moment when you finally come to kill me” all of go is really really great too

    https://www.npr.org/2018/10/04/653632962/blink-182-adam-song-american-anthem-darkness-loss-recovery interesting little writeup. I wonder which board they consulted if it wasn’t ours?

    We need to talk about Matt Skiba

    i wasn’t into fighting the gravity too hard until fairly recently. i appreciated what it was at the time but now i see it as the most unapologetically bizarre and weird song the band ever put out. it perfectly captures mark’s bad psychedelic experience

    2018 "New Album News" Thread

    no future was where cali fell apart for me. it succeeds in what it’s going for (big nostalgic blink comeback album) up until built this pool, but songs like no future could’ve easily been skipped to make it a stronger album. it’s also the first blatantly lifeless track, indistinguishable from other feldmann stuff. i’d say sober was that, but even sober is mildly interesting in its attempt at sounding like a crossover hit (still no idea why no single was released).

    How often do you listen to blink?

    copy/pasted from the other thread: i'll listen to blink a lot as background music, cali included. sometimes the full-on punk rock assault gets tiresome on my ears though, so i'll switch to something lighter. but i always go back to blink. and if i havent listened in, say, two months intently, i still find the 1997-03 work just as fresh as i ever have

    2018 "New Album News" Thread

    it's really tough to say. i find travis to be a super integral member at this point. right now, they might as well hang it up if he's sidelined forever. but if tom came back, it'd be a different story. depending on how risky trav wants to be, it'd be cool for him to record albums (one take wonder, just like the old days) but gets brooks wackerman or whoever to fill in on tour. i'd be fine with that, as sad as it is
