    Ok, M&G all done now. It was behind schedule. Mark came out first, wearing Cure tee and shorts and sandles. People seemed too nervous to ask many questions. About half of them were people asking about the sandles- where u got them ("a little boutique...called amazon"), and if he was going to be wearing them for the show. Then matt walked up and sat down on the monitor, just like mark was, and joined in convo. They both said they feel run down, matt said lil wayne couldnt get into Canada, mark said he's seem the most healthy people in Toronto "everyone wears spandex and carries yoga mats n shit". Then travis walked out, emotionless (doesnt wave, make any eye contact, smile, etc) to a loud cheer and matt joked that we didnt cheer for him like that. Matt seemed super cool. Talkative, funny, comfortable, and when a fan said alkaline trio rules, he looked them right in the eyes and said 'thanks it means alot' really genuinely. Did Man Overboard, Aliens Exist, Mutt, and the sound guys wanted 1 more to get the mix, so they did I Miss You (joking that we got an extra long soundcheck). Then mark handed some picks to one person and told them to hand then out, and mark tossed 2 of travis's sticks into crowd (after travis had walked off). For pictures, i was #12 up and even thou i had a cd cover and pen in my pocket, decided to scrap that idea in favor of asking a unique question -cuz too many people in front of me were asking for autographs. The band was signing them, but i heard travis whisper 'when ur done with that sharpie throw it away' to matt. I shook skibas hand and told him i loved Crimson, then fistbumped travis, and shook marks hand. Stood inbetween mark and travis for picture and told them i flew from western canada just to meet them. Skiba wanted to engage with me more and asked where in Canada and when i said Edmonton, he said 'ohhh i was gonna guess Edmonton". Then i turned to travis and asked him whose his pick Mcgregor or Diaz in the trilogy fight. His stoic expression actually woke up and he took his time thinking about it. Finally settled on Diaz cuz he said he's friends with him. Skiba even jumped into the convo again amd piped up he picks Diaz as well. Then i fist bumped Mark one last time as i walked away. Then spent $370 CAN on merch, lol. That delayed me enough, that im standing 2nd row back from rail right inbetween travis and Mark spots

    i think this review is really well-written and thoughtful, and summarizes how a lot of fans feel in a pretty apt way: https://www.popdust.com/blink-182-release-new-song-2639057795.html

    JarJar said he preferred not to post pictures of himself for personal reasons, this is apples and oranges. It would be different if JarJar was on here saying he was more of a sex icon than Matt Skiba, and THEN refused to post pictures of himself (and deleted ones you posted of him). You are on here boasting that you are a better all around musician than a punk music icon...and won't even post a clip...and deleted the one that proved within 30 seconds that you couldn't even handle blink's opening song.

    So you think you can get a higher price on this bass than a well publicized auction house can? Not exactly a wise business decision my friend.

    I doubt that you’d be able to play and perform as well as Matt does for an entire set. You constantly state you can and talk shit on Matt. I’m saying either prove it and play a whole set or simply shut the fuck up.

    Skiba is so wholesome and thankful for his fans. We don’t deserve him.

    oh I still love it haha but it is ridiculous. I have started playing blink in the car with the missus occasionally and Shut Up came on and she started singing along and I was shocked like "wait, of all the blink I play, *this* is one you actually know?" she knew all the fucking words. I have no idea how haha

    @Donald Trump's Bulge This was filmed on a handheld video camera, the sound is good enough for what you need. Try something like this:

    Like those trainers. Those sandals from a few posts up though are a fucking disgrace. Any bloke wearing sandals or flip flops is a fucking danger.

    Fucking awesome show. Apparently it was the biggest crowd of the tour yet (we were told), and it looked completely full. Looking backwards, i couldnt even see a green gap on the lawn area. N.D. were good and high energy- personally i wasnt familiar with them thou. Not even a huge Simple Plan fan, but they killed it. Crowd was singing all the words- it was basically a hometown show for these boys. Blink played exactly 1.20....from 930- 1050pm. It felt like a good length. Anything less than 1:15 feels too short, but over 90min would feel too long for them. So maybe 2 more songs could be fit in there. They played First Date, so no Rock Show. And i kinda feel like Rock Show should be played at every show. No Feeling This either (instead it was played over the PA as a weird swing'ish version -not by blink- after Travis Drum Solo). Acoustics were Down and Wasting Time. Weirdly, they fit Family Reunion inbetween Wendy Clear and Anthem. I had tried to avoid setlist spoilers for the greatest hits portion of show, so i still dont know exactly what has been played at other shows. I agree with Ry, that they should play G.D. instead of Cynical. Hopefully Happy Days gets played for you folks seeing the 2nd half of the tour. Anyone on the fence, go see this fucking tour if you can. Last time i saw blink was 2016, and this show was miles ahead. More interesting setlist, boys seemed to be enjoying themselves more, and the stage production is awesome.

    Yeah he needs to both play an entire blink set (play the exact set they are playing) AND replace BIOMY with a song he wrote that is better. Its fine if it’s in his bedroom on an acoustic, but I want the whole set played over the same period that they are on stage. It seems like a lot to ask, but he makes it sound so easy. Let’s see it! otherwise stfu

    I think I rationalized it by thinking the more people there are the better chance that there's a few that I can play and sing better than so I'm performing for those people. I love Oliver and have all the respect in the world for him and I am more than happy to give him the opportunity to perform a setlist live here in San Antonio/Austin or I will go there and play in the booming Delaware scene if he provides a drummer up there. Hell, I'll film the whole thing in HD so he can have whatever proof he wants to share but, personally, I think he's talking himself up a bit and there's a big difference in playing a song and performing a song.

    Have you got a band? Are you capable of recording in decent quality? Then be a part of the blink-182online tribute to blink-182 compilation! We are building this like a normal compilation album so pick your favorite blink song - greatest hit, deep cut, old song, new song, whatever - put your own flair or style on it and we will add it to the compilation. It's first come, first serve on track selection so who ever picks a track first gets dibbs, there won't be multiple versions of the same song added. If you are interested then post in here the name of your band and the song you're going to do. I will do my best to organzie and over see this as well so if you have any questions or would like to be involved on the organizational side of things then PM me and let me know. So far we have: Cootie Catcher - Adam's Song Moving To Ashbury - Anthem Part 2

    I love how much effort he put into this, dressed up and everything. @Donald Trump's Bulge seriously continue this! Would be perfect for the board nowadays.

    The more you guys issue pre qualifications, the less likely I am to do this. Now we are back to the "it will never be the same blah blah blah" a pre qualifier I have literally debunked repeatedly. I could come out walking on water playing Mozart and you guys would say its not the same because I didn't have a baton up my ass or whatever. Skiba fucking sucks ass, and me, and hundreds of thousands of guitar players could do better than him onstage. You guys can ignore reality all you want.

    Shhh, I'm a terrible bassist! I'm worse at bass than guitar, I only threw that idea out there to make myself look good, don't push him to it.

    the most lyrically childish one for me is probably Shut Up. I love the song but "FUCK OFF IM NOT LISTENING TO YOU, IM NOT COMING HOME, IM NEVER GOING TO COME BACK HOME, I'LL RUN AWAY!!" is ridiculous haha

    Honestly Oli you could film a turd flushing down the toilet and I'd think it'd have better stage presence than Matt Skiba. He's terrible.

    I have literally not stopped listening to Not Now since the 5th June. I can't fault it at all. It is literally the perfect Blink song. The drums, the bass, the guitar, the vocals both Tom and Mark harmonies. I can't believe it never made the cut on untitled for you guys in the US.

    So its a guitar that Mark probably played once or twice and stuck in garage somewhere. Sounds about right. I think Im more at about $800 now. A fool and his money are easily separated.

    LOL Can't you read? The entire point of this was calling out Jarjar for being a coward. Not calling you out. You've posted pics of your dick between your legs dude. Believe me, those images are unfortunately seared into my memory. I never once called you a coward. Its Mr Jarjar.

    I'm only 4 episodes in so far but I love the fact that this season is branching out into other late 70s / 80s arenas like the whole invasion of the body snatchers vibe with Billy, the evil Russians secrets with blue prints and air vents and all that jazz, the silly friendship teenage stuff going on as well. so far the only weakness seems to be the Nancy storyline side of it but I'm not overly surprised, she's usually annoying AF anyway.

    Since it's not on spotify I never listen to it anymore, but Time to break up were my favorite back in the day, I still think today it's the ultimate pop punk song with all the changes in it. Basically TOYPAJ's Dumpweed with crappy lyrics.. Well, dumpweed isn't a poetry recital either tbh ?

    You know, I was always a weirdo when it came to stage presence. I get all weird when its just me and I'm trying to demo something alone in my room, I get self conscious as fuck and end up limp dicking what I'm doing but live on front of people I was always decent. I can perform in front of 200 people with no issues but put me in front of a handful of folks and I clam up tighter than Jan's mom.
