    "Its Labor Day and my grandpa just ate 7 spinach wrapped tofu links" "She brings me legumes and chai seeds from Whole Foods, just because" Yeah, doesn't sound right. Maybe he'll go back and change the lyrics again?

    I listened to the first half of that and now I need to listen to the original as a palate cleanser.

    To me Cali sounds like Enema and Toypaj (minus Tom's riffs) and while I admit the songwriters do make my inner 16 year old super-punk rocker cringe, the songs sound the same and I don't need to deal with Tom fucking shit up anymore. I'm pretty happy with the band, although I'm regretting getting to know Skiba better. I liked him more when he was the mysterious guy from Alk3; he's a little too weird for me but I love his voice. All the Mark stuff is fan-fic and annoying so I've been trying to stay out of this thread. So, TLDR; I think blink sounds like blink, so therefore I am pumped for more blink.

    this. it's easy to hate on mark right now, and the hate is justified IMO. i don't know what direction he's trying to take this band in, but 95% of the fanbase hates it. he's really fucking up their legacy, like tom stated. but those words from tom were uttered with the same sense of self-importance and grandeur that he's had for over a decade... like he wasn't fucking up the legacy by dragging them along for years, like he didn't quit in the first place for being too controlling, for having a jesus complex, for tricking mark/trav into a modlife deal, for trying to fire travis randomly, to making the band sign a record deal and then drop out days later. at this point, i'm very unhappy with what mark is doing, but like you said, in my mind, some of the stuff tom did was the real downfall of this band. it's easy to forget that in these times. people these days are praising tom left and right, but this is the same dude who recycles guitar riffs, drunkenly croaks like a dying frog onstage, and is completely disingenuous regarding the band and its legacy.

    Prove us wrong Mark. I know he reads here. How can he have a writers block ffs. A father, a husband, the loss of his best friend. Some good shit there we can all relate to at the ages we are now, yet all we get is “can’t wait for the weekend to get drunk and do a kick flip outside Walmart nananana”

    As long as he doesn’t put out bullshit liberal political garbage like greenday does, once he starts pushing his weird hippie vegan leftist lifestyle into his music , blink is done. The best thing about blink has been their almost no existence of politics In their music, lets hope it stays that way

    Mark lurking the boards to catch up on Blink Italia drama, as the bleached dildo finishes writing the next Blink album:

    I'm def still looking forward to new Blink, I'm going to try and refrain from the Feldy hate. It is what it is, it isn't changing. These other co-writers bum me out, and I don't even want their damn harmonies on a Blink album, but we'll see how it turns out. It may end up being my favorite song on the album, who knows.

    The yodels sound like a stupid Tom experiment. But it wasn't constantly repeated as part of a formula is the thing.

    It's a dope song. Really enjoy it as more time passes. Though Mark singing really might've helped push a fuller sound. As for me, still running around taking dance and music video gigs for different dance companies and bands. Not enough time to sleep ever. Glad to here you're doing well! Apples and oranges really to me. If the new music was good I wouldn't have a problem with current Mark, kinda like +44, which I was embracing before he abandoned it. Anyways Mark is recycling sounds (I still hear Feeling This and Adam's Song in BTD), he's got Matt onstage shouting out of tune and fucking up the lyrics and guitar parts, and he's got pop producers. You can argue at least he showed up, unlike Tom, but really in my opinion Mark hasn't truly shown up in years. This band is in shambles and is literally just an ATM machine now.

    Didn't Mark just recently put Tom's name into Man Overboard? I get the hate, but its long past time to move on. There are people I have had a falling out with, it sucks, but I am not vindictive. That stuff is just childish.

    also during the +44 / ava era Mark constantly took the piss at AVA, trying to gain sympathy... low blow iirc tom never said one bad word about +44 and even complimented them on playing blink songs again.... Edit: Tom is and was still a dick, especially back then... but mark is always playing the victim card to justify his shitty behaviour. Can't stand that shit

    @Scott. i'm glad we got neighborhoods and DED... but they decided to not give a fuck on their legacy when tom left. mark bragged about it himself in 2006 : "We could hire a new guitarist and hit the road. It would be our right, since Tom quit. Of course we have no plans to do that. Blink-182 was the three of us. The whole thing would be very disingenuous." he was goddamn right. but then he realised +44 didn't make the bank he was used to, so now all of a sudden he sells blink out however the fuck he gains most cash from it. What a piece of shit

    You doing well, pal? By the way, I'm happy to see that, finally, you came out off of your cave. It's funny, because I remember las time we talked to each other you were just throwing your 'fan fiction' thing when some of us remembered that Hey I'm Sorry was the only song that survived pre-Feldmann sessions. Then it all got linked and fact-checked, and you dissapeared into your cave.

    Exactly, he'd fit right in. In all seriousness, his songwriting may have taken a hit but since becoming sober he's been pretty solid live.

    Lately I've been thinking "what if" they got someone like Mike Herrera from MXPX to replace Tom instead of Skiba? He's besties with Feld-God(plays in Goldfinger now), likes pop-punk, and isn't creepily goth like Skiba. His voice is also slightly nasally and would match better with Mark.

    Think You missed the point. We all agree that yodeling is more lame but it's even lamer to do use the same shit in every single song.

    It was more like Travis was going to sue his own band or refuse to let them play a show in Aus unless he got $1 million. Travis should have been fired. Tom had his head on straight for once.
  34. 1 point
    yup you're right. I do wonder if there's more to that whole thing that Tom maybe knows. I think them parting with Travis wasn't entirely unfounded considering his personal life. Mark certainly entertained the idea of it since Tom claims they spent a week talking about with managers.

    Hahaha jesus I forgot about this. Yeah there is no doubt that he caused the downfall of Blink (twice) and turned it into a frustrating half-hearted version of itself when he actually bothered to be in the band at all, can't blame Mark there. Unfortunately in the smoldering aftermath we have Mark desperately flinging shit at the wall to see what sticks and it's somehow just as annoying and embarrassing since he was the one who kept his dignity through all the other bullshit over the years. Like @vic vinegar was getting at, Mark kinda gave up having the upper hand by the way he's handling Blink now.

    Oh, I've loved it since the first time I heard it. I used to sing along to the La's with a harmony that led into the chorus because Mark didn't bother to do it. The lyrics are a bit dopey but I stopped paying attention to Blink lyrics with Untitled. Thanks, bud, good to be back, feeling pretty good these days! The music is going ... slowly ... just bought a laptop to do some demoing on so it should pick up! Thanks for asking, how have you been?

    I can't imagine being in my 40's, set for life, having sold millions of millions of albums, gained worldwide acclaim..... And sitting in a studio like a little bitch having people write my music, tell me what to do, pacify a label, write tweeny songs that sell. Where is your head at when you do that shit?

    Dragging the name through the fucking mud. He’s a disgrace mark. They should have left it at untitled ffs. They’d go down as a great band imo now it’s all a bit embarrassing. A damn shame nqat

    If they would've just reformed +44....they could play all the blink songs they want while writing new tunes. but no, they had to smudge the blink name royally and hand it over to the industry . i bet tom is fuming.

    RD2 still blowing my mind. Stumpled across a huge town at the edge of the map, i thought nothing was there. And i was casually riding my horse in the middle of nowhere when i got fucking ambushed. A wagon was blown up, i got thrown off my horse and some gang came from behind rocks and trees and just killed me! Wtf

    Something you should learn. Just because people are famous and professional, they are still human. People with big fragile egos, like Mark, who have the truth splashed up their face that they are washed up has beens who have writers block will very easily take it personally enough to go on and block you. There is no mystery here. You spoke the truth and Mark found it offensive. I applaud you for speaking it, and I applaud you for bringing it to Mark's attention. We are the fans, we are the customer. He deserves to know how we feel about his work.

    Ya but its never been common in blink which is why we all hate it so much. Blink used to be a step above FOB, now theyre just one of the same.

    this album will be trash lol. i feel ashamed for throwing so much hate towards tom from 2005-2015. yes, he originally broke up the band and strung us along making us beg for blink music we'd never get. however, at least he kept the legacy of the band in check to some degree. what mark is going for now is just laughable. not only is the music super corny, they won't pull this off. you can't buy that success when you're mostly old and irrelevant. what makes all of those pop stars relevant isn't just the music that is written for them. balding mohawk hoppus isn't exactly in the same league as beyoncé no matter how many people he hires.
