  1. Without Blink 182 Online, I wouldn't have met some of the most amazing people that are part of the community here (I truly cherish this place and I don't regret at all signing up on this legendary forum ❤️ ) Especially @boxelder who created the Timeline website and trusted me with everything linked to it (you're a legend!) @Elisa (that I met IRL and is an absolute sweetheart) and @_Bagel (the nicest, handsome and coolest English person I know) : everyone here is so nice and the community isn't toxic as well (that's the most important element that differ us from all of those Blink fanpages on Instagram)! Blink 182 Online for Ever !!!

  5. These vids are brilliant, I wish he did all blink songs or more of them at least. It’s easy to listen to that song and think it’s some throw away pop rock song but it’s so much more than that, for music buffs it’s probably nothing new but for the ordinary music lover like me it’s amazing to hear all the intricate parts of the song and it gives it so much more meaning to me now. The outro is fucking beautiful. Finn is a genius and sorely missed. He really was the fourth member and a massive loss to the band when he died.

  8. I think I've told this story before, but in 2012 I got to talk for 10/15 minutes with Mark and Skye when I met them outside of the city walls of the medieval town blink was going to play later that night and they were so sweet. Mark asked me what I was studying and a bunch of very specific questions about the town and its history when I told him that I lived 20 minutes away. He also wanted to know the best places in Tuscany to buy some wine (I don't know anything about wine). He told me that he was going to come back in a few months to haunt down wines and ship them to his farm in the UK and some other stuff. I guess that even though he knew I was a fan, maybe he thought I was "okay" because I'm harmless. It also felt a bit like a police interrogation because I was starstruck and it's weird that Mark was the ones asking questions, but he was so nice and genuine. If he had known that I've spent all my life dissecting and overanalyzing every single thing the band has ever done from 1992 until today, I'm sure he would have ruuuuuuun.

  9. i also don't like the implication that you must tip-toe around mark on the discord. there's not a whole lot of room for critical thinking in a room like that, which is okay -- it's nice to have a positive space. but you could never debate the decision to replace tom with matt, or criticize the decision to work with songwriters. while it might seem negative, that type of interaction comes from a deep love of the band and it's completely valid. reddit is a similar concept to old-school message boards but like discord, it's used by pretty much everyone and so much gets lost in the noise. that and constantly being 'on', the never-ending conversation of discord, just doesn't appeal to me. smartphones already made it to where we're constantly online, i don't need to sit there and clamor for mark's next message.

  11. i found mark's response to those videos being ripped kinda cringe. especially the "omg. this is why i don't even want to do things like this" and "i was wearing workout clothes" comments. sounds super insecure. never checked out the discord. i like the information and content that gets leaked from there but the overall experience sounds weird as hell to me. i prefer having ongoing banter with guys from kansas for 15 years straight.

  14. I think it's also because younger people are more likely to accept the current popular social media platforms while us olds just want to chat casually on a message board. As a teenager I excitedly signed up for every new big social media platform. Now I just stick with what I'm familiar with, which isn't Discord. I don't care anymore lol

  16. to add to the discord convo - i don't think many people here give a shit about having super minor web interactions with mark. especially when you have to constantly lurk some chat room type thing and abide by a strict set of social rules to ensure that it continues to happen. it sounds obsessive, fake, and not particularly rewarding.

  21. Newly surfaced show added to the timeline! I was aware of the existence of this show earlier this month and @_Bagel and @Elisa were the first ones to know! This is hands down the best finding of this year in regards to the timeline!!!!!!! Footage from a small show in a saloon! HUGE credits to What's The Story Television Productions on Youtube for sharing and filming the full show for this date of the Race Around Uranus Tour in 1997 😃 9/14/1997: The band performs at the El Dorado Saloon in Sacramento, California. New addition to the timeline! Huge credits to Miah Welder on Facebook for sharing this ticket stub from the Sno Core Tour! 2/28/1998: The band performs at Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio. https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=4749691435107193&set=p.4749691435107193&opaqueCursor=AbpyDF94llu4BrWS4H_OPpQMuP_eDkCcpg292Et-ZWQ9odUIeXxnr0S8NSMXedEqCEZ30kiG-PBYUpwTiB5RJ5dIa83T_sSuEdaQpy0BR4Bs3zXXlPX8LrBEQA27ZzBMvHUjUC3Q6loSvPfFKD2Yfp0pHwtty8_K1uKdx8P1CwXvVLURcjmgTiXyFQTiagwQzcbag4Tw3YW-nsE8JHW9NwXHF92xFvM49Gk9_OR1t2aYv1KjV2i13ImAD8sIjrx0iY2A5QRe7reJACFrKJVwJv-RQLVz4AxmqIiVXLwKaYQM8WPQWuPWEL4h8A7IyQL_l6ev8RsUCMBKhTPqDyWs_uBViLct9Wdh8DwE7YLKpwGod2ZhxJxPtJhvX-aWDh2dzRzIcjyndOmS3dCvLKqYodkvjJm4ZodXNAXIBZXAkShDjrkoh0M1gMuwqPhOMzs-zdxBwa5ZiycxpwbXkpnOhg6cGwHpIuko1jAVLv-BVmofujkLeoSxIjs0CmcpUtmsUTPlmwBfIgv7fEba7XAo6sGT3EV-phSXsg1GzLxEBSMUiiG2A7tPM7p7lCGLaiIRas6l0BigJJc-gulS9rjiaBssyUEBoJfVHDtO4jxf6udtkIdUL9QUpR8ROMKmSO6WaylnYSqy8K8l0BO-5xwYa8d8

  25. Design/aesthetic-wise it's just walls of plain text, harder to differentiate between posters, the upvoting/downvoting system is unique but I prefer reading things chronologically, etc. Classic message boards have much more personality and ease of communicating in my experience.

  27. I think this is why I don't like it. I like that I can post here casually and it will be understood that I won't respond immediately to whatever replies or quotes I get. The fact that it isn't real time makes it better for me. I can read at my own pace, reply at my own pace, and take my time to write up a proper response to things when I feel like I need extra time to properly get my thoughts out, without a stream of messages zooming by in the meantime. As I've gotten older I've increasingly disliked being able to be contacted 24/7 and I've started letting text messages build up in my inbox and letting calls go unanswered because I don't want to be on all the time. It was so much fun to be connected with my friends 24/7 as a teenager but now I just want time to breathe and I wish people couldn't contact me whenever they wanted. A message board fits the way I prefer to communicate much better than a constantly updating mass chatroom ever will. Though even when I was younger I never liked chatrooms. It just feels like the most chaotic way to have discussions.

  28. I definitely love message boards and have tons of nostalgia for the early/mid 00s when it seemed like every band had an active message board and a weirdo community to go along with it. The internet was such a healthier place back then, I think fandom in general was a lot healthier back then, and most of my online time was spent on message boards like this one (and AIM of course). It's shocking that Reddit has pretty much replaced the oldschool message boards for the most part because message boards are superior in every way to me. I guess they're less conducive to the quick hot-take comment structure that the internet is based on now. This place can feel like a ghost town at times when nothing is happening in Blink world, but I'm very glad it exists! Anyway, I have nothing against Discord, I think I tried to navigate Mark's once and ended up thinking eh, it's just not for me. It sounds like it's kinda similar to a giant public Slack though, is that right?

  29. Pretty cool, the ATST one blew my mind more as we already knew about all the harmonies and such in WMAA. The little horn at the end was surprising though. Jerry Finn, such a legend, and glad to hear him get the recognition he deserves here. Also, Marks fucking vocals here, so good.

  35. Yeah like I'm glad Davey likes it and I know Discord is huge and works for a lot of people but it's weird for someone to shit on this place for it's friendship making abilities considering this place has been here for like twenty years and has literally built marriages, best men in marriages, etc.

  40. It's crazy to, even as a blink fan, hear all these straightforward pop punk songs growing up and then find out later they really had so much more at work behind the scenes to make that sound and excitment and sprinkle all these little tidbits in and knowing how to play with our emotions like when to sprinkle a little bit of Tom in at the end of WMAA in the background. Finn really was a genius.

  41. New interview! Found this very cool interview from Electric Ink (a surf/skate zine from 1997)! Timeline wise this is just before the Warped Tour 1997 😃 also that group picture was probably from the same day where this interview took place at Crystal Pier, Pacific Beach.

  43. I just finished this and loved it. The blink section is only 30 pages long but has some interesting tidbits that either I had forgotten or just a slightly more in-depth. but it does a good job at putting the perspective that going with MCA really was the better choice in terms of getting the band to break huge.... eventually. I wouldn't buy it if you're only getting it for blink as much of the info is just a rehash of the history of blink's formation and dealing with Scott (everything about Scott is from the absolutepunk interview or the more recent ones). Tom isn't interviewed but Rick D is. I get the vibe that Epitaph could of had blink if they really cared about them (they really didn't) and waited too long.

  44. i greatly sympathize with this position. i live my life in a very similar way, actually. this is probably because i use discord for work, but for me it's like slack. it's always open on my second monitor and i ignore it most of the time unless someone tags or DMs. and i know there is this misapprehension that it's just a bunch of stans waiting around on mark's every breath. it's really not like that. everyone chats with each other and mark stops by and says hi from time to time. the two of us mostly talk in the disney channel, like he tagged me last week when he found some pictures of his mom as a young girl at the park in 1956 and wanted to know what was behind her in the frontierland pic. stuff like that.

  45. sounds surprisingly good but definitely run through some sort of filter in audacity or something, making vocals the noise profile. sounds watery and weird at portions, but definitely the best i've heard tbh
