  1. had a great time exploring san diego, and LA, for some blink history. stopping by sombrero was obviously the highlight; the food was fantastic. i also stopped by tom’s childhood home/garage where blink started, and saw the light pole mark climbed haha. truly surreal! i also drove by the flower shop that used to house SOMA, as well as both signature sound studios and rolling thunder. both just boring, boxy office buildings… i don’t know what i expected. still, it was fun to see where tom broke the fuck/cock guitar haha. i also visited belmont park on the beach, where some of the video for M+Ms was filmed. didn’t see DML/doubletime or lou’s records but i’m sure i’ll be back at some point. socal is gorgeous. and in LA i by happenstance passed crossroads which is pretty cool haha, and drove up to zuma beach near malibu where part of the ATST video was shot. here’s some photos from the trip:

  3. Hey guys I'm really sorry that the sneakers haven't been shipped and that it took me so long to respond. I have my reasons why I didn't manage to do it sooner but, but they don't justify my behavior and I don't want to make up excuses why I didn't. I never intended not to ship them or for it to take this long, and I didn't respond because I was too ashamed and didn't know how to respond, or wanted to respond after I finally shipped them. I'm really sorry about this and I feel awful. The Shoes have been sitting in a box ready to be shipped for ages and I promise to bring them to the postal office on Monday after work. I'll throw in a little extra for you @Marik sorry for the long wait. That wasn't this boards fault but mine alone. I'll send you the Tracking number and receipt as soon as it's gone out. Sorry for letting you guys down

  5. Hearing Tom and Mark's voices together again the first time I listened to Up All Night was one of my favorite music experiences I've ever had haha.

  6. I love Neighborhoods and especially the memories surrounding the buildup to it. Up All Night was a weak comeback single choice in retrospect but it was still SO exciting listening to it for the first time. Also seeing blink live the summer before the record came out and getting to hear them play Up All Night, Hearts All Gone, Ghost on the Dancefloor, and After Midnight, all before the album was released. That was amazing. Now blink doesn't even play new songs after their albums come out (*cough*California Deluxe songs*cough*) The hype for the reunion was so fun. That was such a great time to be a blink fan. I love this album but the memories associated with it are almost the best part to me.

  8. I enjoy the album. It’s different. I know to each their own and all that shit. Only song that’s a dud for me is the no more guns shit, everything else slaps. Looking forward to seeing them at starland in a few weeks. also, since when did we all start looking to Tom for deep life changing lyrics? It’s hilarious reading you all criticize his lyrics like he’s been some lyrical god all these years. I know nothing on the album matches up to “I drove by your house but you don’t live there anymoreeee” but cut the guy some slack.

  9. It's weird, I don't know how to describe it exactly but this "nu pop punk" stuff just doesn't even seem real to me. It feels like some industry players like Travis are just shaping random TikTok personalities into carefully curated pop-punk clones. Yes, I know, tons of 00s pop punk bands were inauthentic as well, including Blink themselves in some ways. But at that time it felt like the industry plucking up pop-punk bands from the pop-punk world and making them bright and shiny for mass consumption. This feels more like the industry plucking up people who have nothing to do with that world and putting them into pop-punk Halloween costumes.

  12. When the news first broke on this I truly thought Mark was a goner. Not sure why, as I’m usually an optimist, at least for the most part. Very thankful for this news. All the best to Mark, just not a guy who deserves something like this. makes me excited for the future now though 🤘🏼🤘🏼

  13. It's still bullshit from both bands. The only thing you should have on a backing track is something you can't emulate live (like synth, if you don't have a dedicated performer for it, or a click track) and neither band needs to have literally the whole song. It's bullshit.

  21. Just got home from the show in New Jersey tonight, they killed it. They sounded great and it was a good time. Very happy I made it out tonight,drank some alcohol and enjoyed myself. Tom was having fun and the setlist was pretty good, solid end to the weekend. their merch absolutely sucks tho.

  28. haaaaa Literally a whole minute of backing music and lights flailing about while Tom pretends to play along and the others just awkwardly stand about... as soon as the vocals come in he sounds like a dying cat. Ah, I love how Tom can continue to 'entertain' me, even if it's in the completely wrong way. Also, I've repeatedly said it, but this song blows so fucking hard haha

  29. i've enjoyed a few tunes of MGK's tickets to my downfall in the past year, mainly title track and jawbreaker. but i just gave the whole thing a listen and i fucking love this shit haha. it's such a fun listen, combining a lot of classic pop punk themes with some tight (and enjoyably formulaic) songwriting. it's definitely a top-tier pop punk effort in my book, a pretty important LP in the history of the genre at this point. feels gratifying to see pop punk back in the limelight, and while i never expected MGK would be the one who spearheaded it, i appreciate it all the same. also, "nothing inside" sounds almost copy-pasted from "on some emo shit", right down the chords/drum pattern/808s lmao

  31. I’ve said this before and I’ll repeat this every time it comes up, Tom being right that the government has documented ufo events is 1% of the crazy shit he was saying from 2015 to 2018. No one would have ever disputed with Tom that the sheer idea that the us government has unexplainable phenomena happening in the military, everybody believes that. The offering where they scammed investors literally said to the stars was going to build a spaceship that would teleport between planets. Go back and rewatch the joe Rogan podcast they’ve tried to sweep under the rug.

  32. Alright, album as a full - 1. Timebomb | 2/10 | terrible. Sounds like older, bad AVA to me. 2. Euphoria | 8/10 | I love it. It's a grower but every time I listen to it, I love it. the 4 hit rhythm parts are wonderfully cathartic. lyrics aren't terrible, chorus slaps. love it all. 3. Spellbound | 7/10 | Love it too, has a mood to it I appreciate, slight dark wave feel. Some lame lyrics and the chorus takes time to grow on you but overall I'm a fan. Tom needs lower vocal range stuff more. 4. No More Guns | 4 / 10 | I don't hate it. It's not really for me but it's kind of fun to hear it from Tom and seems to suit his voice more. Probably not one I'll revisit often. 5. Losing My Mind | 6/10 | I'm not hot on this one because I don't like the chorus but I do like that it's a little different and the verses/pre choruses are quite fun and again, lovin' lower voice Tom. 6. Automatic | 6 / 10 | It's interesting, some very clear The Cure feels. Not the most exciting song but kind of nice, although Tom's voice kind of ruins it. 7. Restless Souls | 5/10 | This one is better than I remember. If you just ignore the chorus, it's pretty solid. The chorus really lets it down and just sounds like old AVA to me, but the verses are quite interesting. 8. Rebel Girl | 3/10 | Die in a fire. Seriously, This song doesn't improve with age. Stupid lyrics, bad vocals, stupid little synth lead part. just no. 9. A Fire In A Nameless Town | 7/10 | Has similar Spellbound vibes, like a slight 80s feel that I appreciate. I actually love Tom's voice on this one and the harmonies are really interesting. 10. Kiss and Tell | 8/10 | Still love it, tied with Euphoria for best for me. just works. Overall, better than I expected. I like that it embraces the metallic electronica feel more than just plastering wide synths on everything like old AVA used to. I thought as an album it'd sound kind of all over the place but actually it's kind of cohesive. My biggest issue is Tom's terrible lyrics and some tired old school AVA nods here and there that don't add anything. It's not something I'd seek out normally but I appreciate what they've done and I enjoy it. I just wish we hadn't heard most of it before release. I'd give it overall a 6.5/10 I'd say. Not an amazing record where all tracks need spinning but there's some good gems on here.

  33. Because Tom killed all the anticipation. People would have been amped if it was just radio silence until a month or so ago and then released Kiss and Tell and announce a new album. It's been years of releasing songs and talking about it though, so the excitement is dead.

  36. Travis was on SNL for real tonight playing with Young Thug. No idea who that is but the songs were cool. Fuck Laura Jane Grace lol, very odd attack. Travis has been doing the same thing for 20 years and a lot of what he’s done has been irrelevant. He kept doing what he wants and didn’t give a shit. Now he’s having major success so it’s bringing out the haters. Honestly it’s pathetic. Especially the blink “fans” shitting on him.

  37. just was reading the new book by dave grohl, the storyteller, which is entertaining. i didn't know this until now, but apparently both foo fighters and blink share the same tour manager, gus brandt. i'd been reading this whole book wondering why he kept referring to a "gus" while on tour, then it hit me haha. don't know why that surprised me, but i found it interesting nonetheless. blink gets exactly one mention, in the context of performing a big day out 00:

  39. it seems to me that raynor had a travis-like conversation with mark, tom, and management when they signed with MCA, and was included in a new publishing agreement. like it appears being signed to a major would explain the conversation. that would cover dude ranch. if he received a publishing credit on the kung fu re-release of buddha, keep in mind that's the first time that album was "officially" released on an actual label with legal arrangements for (P) and (C). pat called his release a label (filter records) but there is no indication there was anything ASCAP set up until Fun with Goats after they signed to cargo. so it would appear that whatever arrangement was made covered future releases. legally this would "grandfather in" the songs on buddha. it seems like a pretty in the weeds thing to discuss. i doubt mark would even know or remember. like there are things i have wondered about from those years, sure. but i have never, ever, ever, ever thought about this one. if this brings you bewilderment, i hope at the least you enjoy it! 😀

  40. I listened to Neighbourhoods a couple nights ago on a walk and it’s actually aged well. I was never a big fan of the album but thought I’d give it go with the 10 year anniversary. Anyway, Ghosts and Natives are solid opening tracks, up all night is nowhere near as bad as I remembered, the verses are nice. After Midnight is still the worst song on the album but actually a bit better than I thought. Hearts all gone is a fucking force of nature. Fighting the gravity has aged like a fine wine, best song on the album imo. I actually love all of Mark lead songs on the album. Not many of them but they’re the best imo

  42. I still remember when UAN was released. I don’t think I have ever or will ever again play a song on repeat for so long without getting tired of it. My gf at the time and I were going to a music festival a few days after it came out about 8 hours up the coast from where we lived. I didn’t have my license at the time so I was in charge of the iPod and I swear I played UAN every second or third song the whole trip. Never got sick of it. Now I’m not huge on the song but I was so hyped the band was back together I couldn’t stop listening to it. Was it After Midnight or Hearts all Gone that you were able to download off the blink website by stopping the number counter on 182?
