    Blink Vegas Residency

    Been awhile since I was active here but I wanted to chime in on this topic. I 100% agree that they need to do something different & exciting for their shows. Ever since I became a fan in ‘11, it’s been the same stage w/ some pyrotechnics.. and that’s it. You always see the cool stages that make their way into the crowd somehow, why can’t blink do SOMETHING a bit different to change it up? On a similar note, i saw FOB for the first time recently. I didn’t know the lyrics to too many of their songs, so in the weeks leading up to the show, I just threw different live shows on while I was working out & listened to them. i noticed that their show seems to be so copy/paste as well. Most of the recent shows, Sugar We’re Going Down is led by Pete saying “The first time we toured large arenas like this, it was because of this song. So if you know the lyrics, scream then with us” And, around Save Rock & Roll, he’ll also bring a few fans side stage and asks them “how old are you? 10? Would it make the kids at your school jealous if you were backstage at a FOB show!” It’s the same thing word for word, at every show. I get it. You’re there to get your money & move on. you do the same thing day in & out, the majority of the people at those shows don’t go to multiple shows per tour so they don’t know it’s all copy/paste.. but it’d still be nice to change it up and give us “die herds” some excitement

    Anyone happen to see videos from last night or whenever their show in Vegas was? GA looked to be under half full and the entire crowd was still as can be. Saw a video of Feeling This from first few rows and no one was moving whatsoever. edit: link to said video.

    For those of you who haven't looked recently, go do some searching about the festival. #FyreFestival on twitter is almost as good as one of Tom's meltdowns.

    If you search #FyreFestival on Twitter, you'll see all kinds of complaints/sketchiness. Supposedly another major performer has pulled out as well. sounds like some customers and performers are worried about it ending up being a fraudulent thing.

    Mark said today in his interview in which they debuted Misery, that blink will enter the studio at the end of the year to begin work on the next album. i don't know much, but this makes me believe that they're sticking with Feldmann for the next album. This is just a hunch based on the fact that they have a rough timeframe set for beginning the new album, while having just had Feldmann finish up the deluxe album.

    California Nominated for Best Rock Album

    That's not exactly what I'd call "random," fans who enjoy music and a band/artist so much that they are willing to shell out $250+ for a VIP experience. Those people are obviously MUCH more likely to know how to play said band's music. if you want a "random" group of people, go to the street and grab the first 30 people you see. That will be more "random" than die hard fans who buy VIP tickets lol. And I guarantee <10% of those people from the street will be able to play a blink song.

    Out of curiosity... How much do you guys think California has helped the guys' chance of, in the future, making the R&R HOF? I know that, especially with the deluxe album forthcoming, there is still a lot of time to determine just how successful the album is, but we've already seen some of its success in two #1 singles, a Grammy nomination & sales that are greater than Neighborhoods. How much do you think it helps their chances if they win the Grammy? sorry if these questions have been discussed already. I went back a ways to find a thread and look, but didn't find anything. I know the general topic of blink in the HOF has been beat to death, but i just thought it'd be interesting to see everyone's opinion on how California has helped their cause.

    I never visited here much on a consistent basis, but I have found myself following less and less, because of the negativity. (Not expecting anyone to care about that, but it's part of my forthcoming point.) If everything blink does now is so stupid & all you have to say about them is negative, why do you continue to put so much focus on them? It makes absolutely no sense to me. I've been following less because I know there's a ton of negativity, I don't need that in my life. Oliver seems to love it because that's all that his comments ever spew. If everything that the band does is so wrong, why continue to follow and care? Because of the past, which is never coming back?

    Well, I guess this is growing up...

    I know you're just joking, but I somehow stumbled upon her insta a few weeks back & im pretty sure she's dating one of the ADTR dudes. Maybe it was his insta. Anyway, I thought it was someone who Travis would be shagging.

    The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

I haven't been following the forum much, but the recent talks have me confused. It seems as though JP is just ignoring Tom? The posted article has them in a photo together.

    2016 Summer Tour General Discussion

    Really cool of them to do that. i remember seeing an interview, which I think is only a few years old, where the guys (Mark, I believe) were asked about bringing fans on stage to play a song, kind of like Green Day does. The response was something like "this is pretty much our office. Most people don't want many other people roaming around their office." cool that they've changed their mind.

    There is definitely a way in which you can store more than 80 minutes of music on a CD. My brother did it a few years back, when he was only 17-19ish, with very little technological knowledge. He wanted to transfer songs from one computer to another. im not sure if he saved the songs differently than normal so they'd all fit on a normal CD, or if he got a special kind of CD. I just remember him having a cd in the car with 100+ songs on it.
