  1. One thing I definitely noticed is that the video doesn't necessarily do the guitar justice from a tonal sense. The tones used sound like a Mesa was used instead of like an Ampeg or a Marshall, so the tone isn't as biting as Tom's tone on the albums. Still, the replica is really cool and this is coming from someone who doesn't like this guitar personally (not a fan of stickers on guitars, and I've already thrown my hat in the ring as far as the angled pickup debate).
  2. Tom's Sticker Strat pickups..

    I don't think the angled pickup ACTUALLY changes anything. By angling a standard spaced pickup, you're just lining it up with the strings correctly. A Fender-spaced humbucker that's installed normally would achieve the same effect.
  3. When I Was Young, Kaleidoscope and Snake Charmer were some really great moments for Tom. Sure, Kaleidoscope had a lot of Mark all over it but in practice Tom's voice really carries the song.
  4. California Deluxe Album

    See my thing is Tom is basically irrelevant now but new Blink isn't THAT much better. The OG California was good but when you factor in 11 songs of basically the same thing it gets kinda tired, a little redundant. I think the next album could be a lot better if they ditched Feldmann. I'd love to see them go the more alt rock route (kinda like Neighborhoods meets Alkaline Trio), songs like Bored to Death and Left Alone are good indicators.
  5. Took a hard vote for I'm Sorry. It's fine but a bit long. Also, Boring rules. That song is the jam.
  6. California Deluxe Album

    Does anyone actually know when/if Dude Ranch and Cheshire Cat leaked?
  7. I guarantee you as soon as we get to Dude Ranch this forum is going to be an actual shitstorm of pettiness.
  8. California Deluxe Album

    So are we taking bets on how soon after the leak we get "this sucks I miss Tom" posts?
  9. Cheshire Cat - Carousel and Wasting Time Dude Ranch - Untitled and Apple Shampoo Enema of the State - Going Away to College and Wendy Clear Take Off Your Pants and Jacket - Online Songs and Everytime I Look For You S/T - Not Now(?) and Asthenia Neighborhoods - Natives and Snake Charmer California - Bored to Death and No Future
  10. California is a good album as a whole but Rabbit Hole and Bohemian Rhapsody are both just so forced... Built This Pool actually sounded like a joke track that they would have written with Tom though.
  11. Guitar suggestions?

    I personally own a Fender MIM Strat that I modded for 2 Seymour Duncan humbuckers (Jazz and Distortion) and it honestly plays and sounds better than any USA Custom Fender I've ever played.
  12. Blink 182 USA Tour 2017

    Do any of you guys think they might hit the big East Coast markets sometime before they go to Europe as a warmup, like MSG in New York City or something? I would be down for more shows.
  13. (Poll) Favorite Enema of the state song

    Going Away to College is my favorite Blink song in general. That being said, Anthem is so under appreciated to the point where if I say Anthem most people assume I'm referring to part 2.
  14. (Poll) a beer with Mark vs Tom

    Ironically I'm straight edge, but I'd pick Mark. I've always enjoyed Mark's humor (less outrageous, more witty) and character. At this point I think Tom would just want to talk about aliens.
