    Hi all. There is a major upgrade for our forum software IP.Board (3.4.8 -> 4.1) that I've been putting off installing for a while now, but it's time to jump in and get this done. I will be looking at doing this in the next day or two. It shouldn't take me more than an hour or so to do the upgrade, obviously I'll need to bring the boards down while I do this. Because this is an upgrade to a new major version a lot of the software has been rewritten and redesigned, so you will notice that the forums will look a bit different as the core theme has been redesigned. Everything should mostly be in the same place but if you get stuck you can post in the FAQ forums and I'll do my best to help out.

    People use these boards in different ways. For instance, Clarke probably uses these boards to masturbate. So what? He's a young man going through puberty. His hormones are all over the place. You guys should leave Clarke alone.

    I agree that I could do without his arrogant/snarky attitude, but pretending to not be impressed that he hung out with the blink guys in their early days seems like nothing but jealousy.

    I think people here are jealous or at the very least envious of this guy. I know I am for sure. If you aren't, either you are lying to yourself or you aren't a die hard Blink fan. Because reading that story, who here wouldn't give their left nut to have done that? There really is no proof the guy is a liar, and I think people just say that because of the above reason. That being said, he clearly likes to rub everyone's nose in shit over his past. Part of me thinks he kind of has that right given his early time with Blink and the other part of me just doesn't like him for it. I can read his stories and think they are simply amazing but at the same time just be really envious and mad that some of his purpose here is in fact to make us jealous. Its like I respect him but I am envious. I really am of two minds about it.

    If this event really happened (you actually hanging out with him), why did you talk to Mark in the FB collector's page like as if he wouldn't have remembered you?

    But has he really gone on and on about he doesn't like Blink's new music? I don't really see that except in a few situations. He no longer liked them about Scott was replaced. Even before we knew him, it should have been pretty apparent to us that any old school fan during those years does not like newer Blink. Why, because we have never heard from any of those people. They don't exist here besides him. So when one shows up, it should have been a given right off the bat. He doesn't like their newer stuff. So what? I am more than happy to debate him on that and at the end of the day, we have our opinions. I don't see anywhere on here where he is spamming the place with constant "new blink sucks!" posts. Where is that?

    Das what I'm saying. I'm both. If you have an acquaintance who hates anything the Foo Fighters put out after their self-titled and seems to appear in many situations where you and your friends happen to be discussing the Foo Fighters to condescend that we only like them because they sold out, but once hung out with Dave Grohl and got Wendy's together, you'd still not like him and also be endlessly infuriated that he talks about hanging out with Dave Grohl when he doesn't even like "Everlong".

    I'm not jealous. I might have been back in the day when I was 14 but I'm over it now, sure blink are my favourite band ever and it would have been cool to of had some of the experiences that he had but to say I'm envious of him is absolute rubbish, I am 28 years of age - I have more pressing issues to deal with in my life than worrying about someone who got to hang out with blink nearly two decades ago. If anyone is legitimately jealous/envious of these stories you need to get your head checked and realise there is more to it than blink-182...

    I don't care if he posts this stuff, but when it's accompanied with a snarky ass attitude I don't really give a shit that they knew each other at all. I doubt they did to this extent, but the important part is that it's just like any other person you don't know well but seems to be kind of a douche getting to hang out with your favorite band.

    i was gonna wait for someone to just upload it, but when i was saw it was 3 bucks i just downloaded it. here are my thoughts on poet anderson. i’m not a huge AVA fan, but i particularly appreciate this piece of his ‘art project,’ because i’m an animator of sorts and an animation fan. that being said, the whole FROM THE IMAGINATION OF TOM DELONGE thing at the beginning is bullshit, since the people who did all the hard work (i.e., everything - including what looks like a rewrite of tom's script) don’t get credit until the end. first off, the animation in this whole thing is ridiculously gorgeous. an amazing mix of 2D and 3D that should get these two dudes some industry jobs and acclaim, well-deserved. i adore the super-stylized, gorillaz-esque designs. voice acting is superb, and it’s cute to see tom gave his little sister a role. everything about this is done extremely well, from the animation to the sound design, but it lacks where so many films tend to lack, but where it matters most: the story. the story, faint as it may be, is served extremely well by these guys (sergio and edgar martins)’ sense of staging. let’s talk about the story though. it’s confusing, undercooked, and just plain bad. we barely get an idea of who “poet anderson†is before we’re forced to root for him in his final battle toward the end. i expect this out of tom, who is a first-time screenwriter, but it seems as though the film focuses WAY too heavily on action-heavy shots where your only reaction is to go “wow! how cool is poet anderson! wow!†it’s just a groaner all the way through. it isn’t horrible though, and the animation saves it in many areas for me. it’s worth a purchase, and lighting artists is misspelled as “lightning†artists in the credits.

    Thanks for pointing that out, I can see that it's not showing anything after October 30 and I assume there were posts in there in the last week or two. It's best I wait until the post processing scripts finish because they might fix it up, if they don't I'll work on it and figure out what's going on.

    i appreciated davey's posts in the beginning and still do for the most part, because he does have a plethora of blink knowledge (and news articles/concert stubs/etc) that are very interesting. but the elitist attitude grew old very fast for me and a lot of folks here. insulting folks on a blink board for still liking blink when his college dorm had a shrine dedicated to the band. it was like give me a break, dude. it was never about jealousy on my end, either, i could give a shit less that he met mark or hung out that one time. i think it's cool that he can recount the story of going to the movies and stuff but at the end of the day mark is just a person. he doesn't even remember that night, but yet one guy still has the cinema stubs. not that that is lame, but i can't say i'm really jealous. i can say i understand why celebrities are weirded out by fans, though!

    Being envious and also being tired of some one you don't really like much hanging out with one of your favorite bands are not mutually exclusive. They actually go hand in hand, so fuck the fact that some one who gets snarky at people for appreciating anything beyond what they've put out on fucking cassette in the past is also the one who actually KNEW them. Eugh.

    Back in the day, I thought it would be so cool to hear from an old school Blink fan...because by like 2001, they were gone. So I really wanted that perspective because it would just be amazing to see. Well now we got it.

    Again I say - so? It's a blink forum. he posts snippets of his past with the band and his memorabilia. If anything he contributes a lot in the small amount he posts. Loads of people only post in small parts of forums, some people only post their own music and don't become a part of the community they post in at all and maybe - just maybe - he's not inclined to be more involved considering every time he shares something people give him shit for it.

    You have to look at the bigger picture. He only posts this nonsense, doesn't contribute to anything else in the board.

    Thanks guys. What's the facebook group's name We don't have anything set up for donations, the thought is appreciated but we make enough from the ads to pay our server costs so there's really nothing for any donations to go towards. I do my best to look after this stuff here because I love this place, certainly don't want any money out of it! Here's our facebook group, people post in here if the forums are ever down so I can keep everyone up to date. https://www.facebook.com/groups/blink182online/

    I don't get people seeing an issue with this. It was right before Dude Ranch, so blink were getting somewhere and had material out there, it's not like they were just buddies. If you had the chance to hang with people who made music you loved and had potential for great things, yeah you'd keep momento's. makes sense to me. Plus this was literally almost 20 years ago and since then Mark has had a gigantic career where he's met and spent time with literally thousands of people, of course he probably won't remember Davey. I mean fuck I've had evenings with people that I don't remember now and I'm only 26. Seriously you lot jump on him way too much. all he's done is share some of his stuff with us, and occasionally point out that he only likes early blink. seriously what is the problem here?

    Keeping cinema tickets is not that weird. I used to collect mine and probably still have a stash somewhere

    That's a really good idea, I don't think there's functionality built in to the boards for this but if there's no add-on that does it I could probably code one pretty easily.

    To be fair, knowing blink members isn't the highest ticket in the celebrity bottom feeder bracket

    Laura Jane Grace got tattooed with me, she even paid for it. I knew her when she was he. Do you care? No of course you don't, why would you? Why would I brag about it? That time I did something normal with a normal human being before they got famous and became a less normal human being? He saw a fucking movie with some - and I use the term loosely - 'friends' and kept the ticket 20 years later on his Blink 182 shrine and I'm supposed to be like 'Whoa, that's rad even thought in every other circumstance it'd be creepy as fuck ... literally ... ever. Other. Circumstance. You ever see a movie with your friends? Did you keep that ticket stub and put it on your friendship wall? No? They weren't famous then. It's weird. Even more so when you're using it to show off to a board where the majority of the users are half your age ... unless they are Clarke then its like a fourth of his age. Its just an old guy bragging about that time he knew people before they were famous on a website where he thinks members would be impressed by it. No, I'm not jealous, why would I be? They're people, they had/have normal lives. He didn't know they would be famous, no clue... do you know that that means? He bet on them being famous so that he could brag. They weren't his friends, they were a potential to make himself look good. Thats the difference, it's not like he was giving away clothes from his yourh and checked the pockets and stumbled across an old ticket with some other trash and was like, holy shit, I remember this night. Hey guys, check out what I just found! No, this creeper kept this fucker like a high school girl's love notes. He lucked out. Good for him, glad he had it but that doesn't mean I need to be impressed. It is, after all, an extremely shitty Mel Gibson movie.

    dammit davey, you should have waited for another year to start this topic, because some things cannot be mentioned if the elapsed time in years isn't a multiple of five. 5 years ago at 9:50 a.m. tom reported that ava would tour in europe. see, it's a lot more interesting.

    I am close to giving up watching this show. Last night was 90 minutes of my life that I wish I could get back. Okay, yeah, it had its moments. But do people really care about some trasnformation story? It wasn't all that great. They are slowing it way down, dragging it out. How about we get back to the fucking plot here? Next week doesn't look any better: More "Walkers attack, people react". I loved the line in the preview "We fight or we die". Its like the same fucking shit over and over. In real life Rick would have offed himself a long time ago when he discovered his life was 5 years of running, killing walkers, finding safe havers that weren't safe havens, more running, more killing walkers, and more safe havens that aren't safe havens. Really, how long does this go on for? Been following this loyally since it started but about ready to close the book. I just don't care that much anymore.
