  1. Finished up another blink wood carving. Next time I’ll probably experiment with some color. Kept it simple for my first try with the smiley

  3. Hey all — link below for the MP3s! The quality is UNREAL. I’m excited to hear everyone’s thoughts. The New Hope demo… I have no words. @daveyjones is going to pop in with some more details! HUGE thank you to Davey for this. Not only for doing the legwork and sharing his knowledge (as always), but also for being a lovely human with endless love and positivity for this band. I’m super excited to have this little tape, but it would be pretty useless without your help, Davey, and without communities like this. Anyway, enjoy!! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1WoMCY09

  4. for years we thought it was a fake, a rumor, a unicorn! but no. it's real. ok here are all the details for my fellow nerds... first off, with this tape we now have heard all the demo material prior to the dude ranch demo sessions (the ones mark played me in 1996, the ones @veeRob managed to get back to him last year) known to exist. also, @Ry-Bread forget about buddha (~1,000 copies) or even short bus (500 copies). from what i gather these were dubbed for only a small number of industry folks, record store people etc. maybe @blinkstillrules can ask joe vandal if he remembers. bu

  5. There is no universe, where Nine is a better album than Untitled, in whatever sense you would like to compare them. One is born out of the desire to push the boundaries of your music, to put yourself out there, doing something new, exciting, fresh and breaking barriers. The other was written by 20 people and was made because they had to release an album. As a standalone release Nine is ok but please get it together and never compare the two.

  9. What do you mean? He as much stage presence as (at least) Freddie Mercury here? His voice sounds good though, but yeah, him without a guitar leaves him looking like those things out of car dealerships. Everything's magiiiiiiiic

  10. Update regarding the google docs document✌️ I have tried to make the document as up-to-date as it is as of today! Obviously some stuff have expired regarding some links but I have saved a ton of stuff in my archives and have added them! I have added more rare pictures from shows, of fans meeting the band members, added some new dates as well as some new footage to the dates of the timeline!

  15. When You Fucked Grandpa just popped up on shuffle. First time listening to it in a long time. When Mark starts shouting over himself "this is fucking stupid, man!" and goes on I cracked up. All the stuff he yells at the end of that song makes the whole thing way funnier. I rarely ever listen to the joke songs anymore, but that part made me laugh out loud.

  16. Remember the guy who joined and said he was personal friends with Tom and his family, and guaranteed that Tom and Jen weren’t splitting up? It was pretty soon after that that it was officially confirmed that they were. I wonder how that guy’s doing lol

  19. this is truly unbelievable. i remember when i was first compiling the timeline there were so many mysteries. other question marks -- the true release date of CC, the first gig, etc -- came and fell. the suspected "buddha promo" was the last true mystery. it never made sense to me: there were these ear-splitting low-res MP3 floating around for decades, of what seemed to be a combo of released (wasting time) and unreleased (princess leia) blink tunes. for some time i thought it might even be a fan prank, though the unreleased tracks clearly indicated otherwise. perhaps i was a dunce on this

  29. I would fucking LOVE...I mean love a history from Mark. He can write...he’s pretty much Blink’s own historian. By now, enough water under the bridge had passed where passages about Tom will be positive and more appreciative than anything. Why hasn’t he done this ? He’s the exact kind of dork that would write a book. One thing I liked about Travis’s is where other people in his life commented on the same scenario he was talking about, to get another persons perspective. That’s where the insightful shit was, passages from Mark, Tom and his ex wife.

  30. Travis IS boring/dull as fuck but it never was an issue because Tom and Mark were so eccentric that it was actually funny to have around. Musically he is far from boring though.

  32. Hello, new here. I joined because I was told by another Blink fan about the forum. Neat seeing what other items are out there from like-minded people! I own a letter Mark wrote to one of their first ever overseas fans.

  38. Sometimes I get sad that all the big conversations happen while I’m busy working/time zone issues and I miss out. Then there is other times I catch up on 3-5 pages and it’s just people whinging about mod status and I think maybe it isn’t so bad. It’s especially boring when it’s plainly obvious Coight would be the next mod anyway. Reasons being: 1) super cute 2) absolute sick cunt 3) already sent @Ghent nudes It’s days away I can feel It.

  40. American Idiot is easily one of the most overrated pieces of shit. Seriously, people bumming that album is so eye roll inducing. I've never had Untitled as my 'favourite' blink album, I always hold Dude Ranch and TOYPAJ above it, but Untitled is an important album and a fucking good album and Nine and California don't come remotely close to it. or any other blink album. They just fucking don't.

  44. You and Jar Jar have insulted my weight and how I look before (on more than one occasion) - or do you regard me mocking your taste in music as worse than this? Don't play out this whiter than white attitude, you can be a right 'ass hole' as well when you fancy it.

  46. I actually have a lot of time for Avril. She could've easily turned herself into a full on pop star, and she never did. Think about the likes of Gaga or Taylor Swift who changed their core music to become superstars - Avril was always basically a simple singer songwriter who liked punk and the culture and even when the music didn't remotely suit it, she still did. Yes, her music is mostly just pop, but she wasn't and she didn't change who she was to fit that image and strive for that level of success, and I respect that. The only time she changed it up was purely for her Japanese a
