  1. Mark said on stream he has Stage 4 Diffuse large B cell lymphoma and his test is tomorrow to see if he has to either do a final 3 rounds of chemo if it worked or possibly try bone marrow transplants if things haven’t gotten better. He said his mom had that cancer as well and beat it (as well as breast cancer) so here’s to kicking it’s ass again in the family 💪

  3. I think the negative reputation these boards have is both overhyped and undeserved. I stumbled onto these boards and found community and connection at a time when those things were extremely hard to come by. I understand that in terms of the band we can be construed as negative, but that’s because we’re so invested and have loved something for so many years. That’s what happens, you hate the idiosyncrasies or love them. That’s what lends diversity to our views and keeps discussion on the band interesting. However, one thread that unites us all is that we acknowledge the huge effect the band has had on all our lives. I get it can be a little intimidating at first - trying to break in with all the history and the inside jokes. It’s like trying to slowly integrate into a friendship group or a family, because, let’s face it you twats, that’s what this is. However, if you show willingness and have a sense of humour about yourself (more than anything) - you’ll get on fine. Pretty much everyone I’ve met here has been welcoming, knowledgable, funny and caring. Its easy to navigate the site without arguing. The only guy I’ve fought with is a neo nazi, which I think is fair enough. (Not it wasn’t @Depf, he’s actually alright). There’s been zoom calls, WhatsApps and people commiserating and taking the piss. I’ve managed to meet a hero of mine and now there’s a huge charity push for the same man in his time of need? This site is amazing. In the words of another hero of mine - everyday you have to talk to somebody, if I don’t talk to you guys - it’s just not the same day. fuck you

  8. I remember asking my older sister what a blowjob was after listening to The Mark Tom and Travis show. I was 9 at the time. She told me it was when a woman would go and get her hair done. So the next time my mum was going to the hairdresser I asked if she was going to get a blowjob lmao

  9. mark looks happy, dedicated and positive in that picture. really boosted my mood about the whole thing. as a super fan i must admit it’s been hard to process the mark news… which is nothing to how he or his family feels, i’m sure. but seeing him with a huge smile and a wisecrack truly gives me hope.

  13. Listening to the song again today, I love it even more. Kiss & Tell still reigns supreme, but this is my second favorite. This video feels like a parody of early 2006 Tom, with the long hair, huge glasses, and stupid arm wavy dance moves, and that makes it so good haha

  16. I do wonder sometimes if people don't realise that underneath the stupid fights and bitter commentary, we actually love all the guys? Like regardless of my own issues and thoughts about later blink , I fucking love Mark. I love Skiba, I love Tom, I have mad respect for Scott and, I mean, Travis is fine. Jokes aside, we all care. I'd hope things like this would be a pretty obvious reminder of that. Who's to say.

  18. The pic of Mark kind of fucked me up. Such a curveball thrown at the last person to deserve it. Not that anyone does deserve it, but we all know Mark Hoppus doesn’t. I hope so much that he can beat it and go on with his life. Such a bummer.

  19. Mark, You're an icon. I have chills writing this. You've brought happiness to so many of us. Growing up, my parents would ask me to give them blink-182 tickets on their birthdays and holidays. As I grew older, I realized the whole point behind it was just so that they could take joy in seeing the happiness on my face that your band gave to me at shows. My mom drove hours, on her birthday, to take me to my first blink-182 concert, and I will never forget that. Thank you. Cancer is tough, and it is a battle that is unique for each individual that has to go through the journey to recovery. There is a season for giving and a season for receiving, and right now, it is for sure your season for receiving. You've given us so much: decades of joy, emotion, laughter, and iconic guitar riffs to play ..loudly.. in our basements. No fan of yours would be the same person without you pursuing your dreams. We are all here for you now, and we always will be, because you are going to beat this. Much love. Best of luck. Clarke

  25. Yeah sorry! I misread and didn’t realise you were meaning embarrassed about cancer in his “private” areas like prostrate etc and thought you meant just embarrassed and choosing to be private in general. My bad. I really do doubt Mark would feel embarrassed to reveal what type of cancer he has. Whether it be in his private areas or anywhere else. I just truly think he wants to keep it as close to him as he can at the moment. I can completely understand why. You just have to look at how quickly articles spread once he posted that Instagram story. Now imagine if he announced what type of cancer it was. There would be 100 different articles, all with survival rates for that particular type of cancer and shit like that being spread within an hour. I’m sure he doesn’t want to see that or have his family see that. They all know already. Having it plastered all over the internet would just make it worse for them.

  26. so, i got to see green day live for the first time last night and was honestly blown away. extremely tight as a band, high-energy, old-school rock showmanship/crowd work, fans coming up onstage… it was just a great show. it got me thinking about how much blink truly sucks live, and why that is. and i guess the difference is that neither mark or tom have a big interest in classic rock showmanship, and that’s okay. tom also clearly has little interest in music anymore, whereas the whole green day entourage seems like it’s the first gig they’ve ever played. that enthusiasm really translates well to a big crowd given that these bands will never play smaller rooms again, and it’s something blink sorely lacks. apples to oranges i guess, but green day live was extremely fun in a way blink has never been for me

  33. No need to be cunty towards bobbo. It's an understandable thought and if there is a place where you could and should vent about this particular topic it is here with other concerned fans. I don't see any malice in that post. Its not like they posted that in the messages to mark thread and it obviously is from someone who cares.

  34. That pic tells the whole story pretty much. Mark, Travis and Feldmann in the forefront; Skiba in the back shadow.

  35. Double standard: I think the difference is that those who love this new version of blink get defensive and put Tom using songwriters with AVA on the same level of blink using songwriters, without thinking that everyone here loves blink and their legacy more than AVA. Blink always wrote their songs by themselves so people are disappointed by the fact that now they need the help of 5 more people just to write a song. They even have Skiba, who is a fantastic songwriter, and they've never used his abilities to the fullest. I'm sure everyone would be as upset as they are now if blink with Tom had songwriters for hire, but they're not too bothered about AVA because AVA is a different band, it's not blink.

  42. Someone needs to pitch this idea to Tom as a documentary possibility. Let him produce it or whatever he needs to feel important. Get that shit on Hulu. We have Kardashian connections now in blink land. This would be easy to get done!

  43. I just want to add that my Uncle Jack was diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer over 10 years ago. I’ll have to ask what kind it was specifically because I forget the actual name. But he was given months to live 10 years ago. He’s still doing alive and well, in fact I just golfed with him yesterday. And he’s at least 20 years older than Mark. Let’s remain positive for Mark, he’s gonna beat this too. ❤️

  46. I’ll throw out a good reason one wouldn’t want to share cancer type. Cancer types vary heavily in prognoses, but they also vary heavily in prognosis within a certain type and heavily varies on the individuals own body and health. Say he has a bad cancer type and stage, but his doctor gave him a pretty good prognosis based on his specific circumstances. People just associate with the cancer type and the public, people you don’t know, just start spreading garbage like damn you’re probably going to die and you feel terrible and hopeless and not what you need in the middle of a cancer treatment. The less you reveal, the more you protect yourself from armchair doctors causing you insane amounts of stress and anxiety; all of which are terrible for the body.

  47. I think we all agree that it's unacceptable for anyone to ask Mark what kind of cancer he has or ask him for any information about his illness. If he shares anything, it should be because he wants to, not because people are badgering him. That said, talking about it here is very different from doing so on Discord or somewhere else Mark would be more likely to see. As long as everyone is respectful here (i.e., no wild speculation, no playing armchair oncologist, etc.), I think it's fine for us to talk about it.

  48. That's fair, I didn't know he didn't accept writing credits on his other work (I don't rate him as much of a producer so I've never checked) so maybe he's had more involvement. I'll concede that. We still don't know how much though as it's never been put out there, while Feldmann's involvement has been covered in a lot of interviews and stuff. Either way, I dislike bands who are fully capable of writing decent material getting others to do the work for them and doing it badly. Mark and Skiba and Travis don't need said help and my argument is it's made their work worse. I don't know what input Aaron has, I know more about what input Ilan has, and I prefer AVA since Ilan's been involved, because previous AVA was dogshit. I dislike the idea that the band needs outside help (although I still don't know what that involvement is rom Aaron, and they haven't hired other outside writers so it's still different) but Tom has consistently shat the bed for so long that it angers me less and mostly just makes me roll my eyes. My issue with Feldy and outside writers with current blink has always been that I know all 3 are capable of more and better, and it bothers me that they don't even seem to want to try. I don't see it as a double standard, because before Cali came about, I had a lot of respect for Travis, Mark and Skiba. I had faith all 3 working together would make great stuff, and they didn't. It's consistently disappointing. But Tom's been disappointing us for literally 15+ years at this point. It's easier to be less upset. I'm used to it haha
