    I've been considering buying a PS4 and becoming a two current gen console home for a while, but Spiderman has made the choice significantly easier. As soon as I've moved I'm taking the plunge. If there's still any about I may buy the special edition spidey PS4. Looks lovely.
  2. I struggle with that one because he's playing it quite badly. like I can see what he's trying to do but he keeps missing strings and accidentally muting parts that don't sound like they're supposed to be muted. it also sounds really damn similar to the acoustic clip from around the cheetah videos times. there's nothing inherently special about it at all.

    We need to talk about Matt Skiba

    not even at all. the new alk3 record solidifies to me even more than Matt doesn't belong in blink.
  4. I picture it like this - Tom's on his phone, in their kitchen, yakking away about aliens and conspiracies and whatnot. Jen walks in, takes a slow, sad sobering look at who her husband has become, give a subtle shake of her head as one lone tear drops from her eye. She packs a small bag of essentials, walks back to the kitchen, while Tom ends his phone conversation. He turns to her, smiles instinctively and then pauses when he sees the bag in her hand. confusion spreads over his features. She chokes out "I'm sorry, Tom" and the tears well up in her eyes as she sadly puts her hand on his shoulder and says "I'm not ready for the next adventure".

    What TV show are you watching?

    New Girl is one of the worst shows I've ever seen.

    I really doubt it, they'll probably have an audience that's like "whey haven't heard this live in years" and that's it. people are making a way bigger deal out of this than it actually is. It's a song they've played live for years, they have other big singles, it really doesn't matter. they have had a large enough career to not need to rely on playing one big song live.

    I shared this in the blink discussion on it, but she's not some one off diva. loads of artists do things like this. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-45470744
  8. That clip instantly made me think of Elevator, as interesting as it is it does sound quite typically Tom. not hating on it, but it isn't anything new. which is fine by me, all I want from Tom is some "eh, it'll do" music at this point.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-45470744 Radiohead went 7 years without performing Creep. Oasis didn't play Wonderwall for years either. This happens quite a lot, for one reason or another. Paramore aren't one hit wonders, they can still play Pressure, Aint It Fun, The Only Exception, Hard Times, Still Into You and all the other singles and have a happy crowd. it is not the be all and end all of their career, and as it's their music and their band they can do whatever the hell they like with it.

    Oh shut the fuck up. Loads of artists have done this, it's her songs, it's up to her what she plays live. She's made it known they won't play it and that's it - her music, her choice. Brand New stopped playing Seventy x Seven, blink stopped playing Adams Song and Paramore have a shit load of other materials and hits to use.

    just to keep ya'll up to date - thong rider has sent me stuff and I will be making a new thread but I've had to pack up my desktop at home because I'm in the middle of moving house. I try not to use my work computer that often for posting and it's impossible to do this cohesively on my phone so give me a week or so, and I'll have it up.

    Travis having blood clots in arms

    At this point Travis is the only component worth going to see. Matt hasn't really taken ownership of half the material, Mark can barely croak out in tune anymore and they're playing to backing tracks. Travis's amazing skills are the only thing worth viewing live.

    I don't have an issue with the lyric itself, the song overall is quite childish. As a songwriter though, I can totally see where she's coming from. She probably feels very embarrassed by the song overall not just that lyric, purely from a 'catty girl aggressive bullshit' perspective. She's not a kid anymore, it's an ugly representation of being a teen and Paramore have grown up a lot thematically since then. I can see why fans would be pissed though, it's like their biggest hit. But you can still listen to the record, and there's a loads of old live recordings. No one is really losing anything. Her song, her band, her choice.

    Okay so I've had a proper few listens now and I definitely have updated opinions, I'm sure you're all waiting with bated breath. 1. "Is This Thing Cursed?" - Still love it, still one of the records highlights for me, I fall in love with it more and more each time I listen to it. 8.5/10 2. "Blackbird" - My opinion on this one hasn't really changed, still think it's an alright track, still think it isn't really anything special. kinda surprised they chose it to be the first one people heard considering how good the rest of the record is. 5/10 3. "Demon and Division" - I was reserved about this one initially because I found the "anything/everything" repeats kind of annoying, but the rest of the song recovers from it. the chorus is great, love the bass in it, the mix is still really odd in places. not big on the bridge either as you just can't really make anything out because it becomes kind of a mess to listen to. but overall, it's a solid song. 7/10 4. "Little Help?" - It might be my overall favourite. I think I like it so much because it's kind of a surprise for me, Alk3 haven't done straight forward punk songs in quite some time and I love the lyrics. Yeah, simple, over done concept, but it's done very well and it's catchy as hell. It's really fun to play and that will always warm me up to a song too - I'm literally going to cover this at a show I'm doing in October. if my sister films me on her phone I'll slap it up here. 9/10 5 "I Can't Believe" - I've already stated this in this thread but I just can't get into this one. this is the worst song on the record for me. The verses are identical, melodically disinteresting, the lyrics are just not really saying much of anything. The chorus is alright, but a little monotonous for what it is. The only musical things I particularly like about it are the drums, and the ending. 4/10 6. "Sweet Vampires" - I'm not a big fan of this one either, similarly boring but has a little more going for it than I Can't Believe - I find the guitar riff sounds too synthy in the verses/intro bit and I find that distracting, would've been cool if they'd used different effects or kept it straight forward distortion. The chorus is alright but I just can't really get behind the concept. 5/10 7. "Pale Blue Ribbon" - I love the riff in this, very cool - pace of it is nice after the dip of the previous two tracks. It took a while to warm up for me but I actually quite like this song now, I like the lyrics quite a bit and the harmonies on the chorus are great. 7.5/10 8. "Goodbye Fire Island" - Yeah, the "Hey ya" lyric is annoying. I don't mind the "yeah" on the chorus though, has a weird charm to it. I like it's a good song, I do like it, although I think this song totally misses a trick. Considering what Matt said the song was about, I feel like there is so much more he could of done with it lyrically and with delivery - it doesn't have the gravitas it should considering the songs background. I kind of wish he never delved into it's meaning, maybe I'd enjoy it more. I like the general mood of the song though. 7/10 9. "Stay" - This is a weird one for me, I really liked it initially but over time I'm sort of less sure. I still quite like the lyrics a lot, and the chorus is really sweet and the "stay" harmonies are fabulous. my main gripe is it would make a fantastic acoustic song, I think it just tonally doesn't work as well with electric. I think they could've stripped this back and it would've been really lovely, but I imagine with 'Krystalline' they wouldn't want too much acoustic on the record. personally, I'd have swapped that around. 7/10 10. "Heart Attacks" - I really like the chorus initially, now I love the whole song. I love the lyrics to this one possibly the most overall and I have zero idea what it's about. it isn't necessarily very special musically (although I particularly like the guitars sound wise in this one), but the chorus does sound quite different for them to me, but the melodies are so spot on 'Matt' sounding that I'm super happy he did it with Alk3. I feel like this and a few others could work easily on something like Good Mourning and that's a comfort. overall, one of my highlights. 8/10 11. "Worn So Thin" - This might be the one that's taking the longest to grown on me. I have no issue with it, it just hasn't "stuck" for me, although again I like some of the lyrics - the second verse he almost sounds like whats his tits from Green Day in places which is weird. it's just a bit weird for me and I think considering the style and speed of "Little Help" and "Pale Blue Ribbon" it's kind of an unnecessary extra from Dan? I'd rather hear something different from him, not 3 interchangeable tracks. 6/10 12. "Throw Me To The Lions" - Might be my favourite chorus overall, quite like the lyrics to this one as well but only the ones I can make out, not researched it enough. This is another "could've been on older records" one for me, big fan overall. 8/10 13. "Krystalline" - My opinion on this one wasn't changed. I love it, but it just ends with weird ass noises and it bugs me. I think there could've been a great full song here but they cut it short and that you know, would've been fine, but then padding it out with random crap at the end makes no sense to me. IT is really basic and straight forward but the lyrics and melody are infectious and it reminds me of falling for songs like "What Went Wrong" and "Blue In The Face" so I can't fault it, I've listened to it on repeat... but it still annoys me haha. 8/10 Overall, it's a solid record. 7/10. not many I'd skip, none I'd skip every time. pretty solid!

    GFI I like parts of but I mostly think it could've been a lot better lyrically considering what it's about, I expected more. I love Throw Me To The Lions though, one of my fave choruses. I don't dislike it guitar wise, just doesn't stick out. The second half of each verse has that fast single note chugging thing going on which is cool but because it's identical on each verse I'm less enthused by it, apart from that I just feel like its a little monotonous. I don't hate it, just doesn't excite me.
