  1. I’ve been dabbling in wood carving the last few months. This ones not done, but thought I would share

  3. Ghent inspired me. I've been dabbing in painting the last few months and I finally gave my Epiphone Dot the Tom DeLonge paintjob! Don't like to pat myself on the back but I think it's looks amazing tbh. I'm gonna try to sell it to a big Tom fan.

  4. Blink Italia is so lame. Guy is a fucking douche. It really bums me out that they are the main blink fan page. Ry-Bread is doing much better work. I hope it pays off in the end.

  5. Blink italia also said that those comments from Mark and his manager are defamatory and the guy sent a long letter to Mark, to which Mark hasn't responded. And Mark's manager told him just to chill and stop being so formal (and whiny I assume).

  6. First thought best thought writing approach with outside writers. Mark makes better art when he agonise himself over it and puts himself into it fully. Feldmann is just a tween song factory and the more outside influence you have, the less identity the song has. as a result all of their songs are fairly 2 dimensional and cringy because of it.

  8. Just dropped a new "182 News" episode which features special guest @veeRob! This was a rad conversation and I appreciate Rob taking time to hop on. (I'm glad he stumbled upon the forums a few years back!) Rob created the very first blink website, and shared some incredible stories about the launch of Dude Ranch/EOTS, Scott's departure, the original Josie music video, being in the Dammit music video, Dude Ranch demos, and more. He also shared some incredible photos that he took which I will be sharing throughout the next few weeks on our socials. Will also try and get them in here, along with r

  9. Mark's manager (his username is sellouts on discord) said that Mark's discord channel is basically a free content generator for blink italia, and they post everything they see there as news, without any links back to the channel. Blink Italia tried to win him back with some long winded messages, kissing his ass, but the manager got all passive aggressive and then Mark chimed in with these comments:

  11. According to my Facebook memories, I-Empire leaked 13 years ago today, in 2007. I was very into AVA at the time and I was so excited for that album. I had already heard like half the songs on it beforehand because of single releases and other partial leaks, but I was still thrilled to hear the full record. I remember listening to it that night in bed with my headphones on and thinking Heaven was one of the best songs ever. I don't listen to the album much these days, but a lot of fun memories are associated with it for me. It was an exciting time to be a blink fan even though blink wasn't

  12. Imagine after all these years of the band members being super secluded and private from fans, Mark starts giving fans the ability to interact with him on a very intimate level. I don’t have time for that kind of stuff anymore, but participating in a discord and participate in group chats with him would be really cool. I don’t need to hear a public recap of every word mark says in those chats nor do I really care. One guy has to come in and ruin it. If what you were doing is completely cool, you wouldn’t have to make aliases to disguise yourself from the band members lmao...

  13. There's such a push for things to be exactly as perfect as records, robbing live performances of what make them unique. Did you know they can live pitch correct vocal performances now? They can fix your bum notes on the fucking go. It's insane.

  15. talk about killing the goose who laid the golden egg. that's why mark stopped commenting on the FB blink collectors page. people kept harassing him with questions when he just wanted to hang out when he was bored and *pretend* to not be a public figure.

  16. I hope this image isn't stupidly large but i just got these 12" singles in the mail today. they used to be pretty rare but the prices have dropped. the only thing that sucks is the label didn't bother to combine the "pt 1 & 2" track listing of the CDs onto the vinyl releases so there are barely any songs on them.

  17. Thanks!!! Yeah I’ve been kinda on the fence of balancing that because 1. There’s not a ton of news rn 2. The interviews have been long so don’t feel the need to talk a ton at the beginning 3. I’d like these interviews to be found for years really so I hate to outdate it terribly with some random news at the beginning... It’s also a lot easier to just pop the interview in from an editing/my time perspective, so we’ll see how it goes. I just gotta keep finding interesting people to chat with every couple months or so. I don’t want it to become a burden or anything so just rolling with it.

  22. There is a difference between taking your time on something and just not working on it. Tom's done both here. Rebel Girl came out over 18 months ago and by the time the record comes out it will be likely 2 years old. It's obvious Tom just literally stopped working on music for a good 6 months there at least, most likely more. I'm sure he's taking more time and putting in a bit more care then the Cali sessions but if you believe he's been meticulously working on these songs, perfecting them for 2 years straight now then you're dreaming.

  23. Not my thing either to be honest but it is funny how almost every "If ____ Sounded Like Blink 182" video on youtube is actually doing this style of pop punk, rather than actually sounding like Blink haha

  24. Fuck me, this is awesome. I'm pumped for Travis that he gets to be a part of this. Debuted at #1. A total genre resurgence. People who don't even know what pop punk is are listening to this and loving it. Kind of like we all stumbled on pop punk back in the day. We didn't seek it out, it came to us

  27. There are just some lines that should not be crossed IMO, and I can understand both sides of it. Mark's discord is awesome, it's extremely positive and he genuinely just wants to feel like a normal dude and chat about random stuff with fans when he's bored. I'm in there, and despite some of the neat tidbits he sprinkles in occasionally - I haven't posted or even brought up anything from there as it feels like a safe place, and it's honestly just so cool of him to do. The problem with these "safe places" (Mark's Twitch/Discord) is that typically Italia will come in hammering away with a mi

  31. Again, i know very little about music. I know a few punk chords. So i'm not saying they specifically ripped themselves off. Just what it sounds like to my own ears. But i'll be damned if that first year Bored to Death would come on over the speaker at my night job, i thought it was Feeling This every time for about 3-4 seconds and that's cuz of the drums. I'd get super excited to very depressed in the span of 10 seconds.

  32. A lot of these folks are approachable and totally down to chat and reminisce, sometimes it’s as simple as asking - most are flattered to be asked to come on any pod. If anyone thinks of realistic guests I should ask, as always please lmk. Mark/Trav/Tom are 100% aware of the pod, I think my best shot would be with Mark one day, but he has a “no pods” rule because he gets asked so often which I understand. (Unless of course Jim Adkins/Chris DeMakes/good friends ask lol) So just continuing to build it up until one day hopefully he wants to come on!

  33. i love how there are people on the blink182 forum of all places that can actually talk tone. usually it's "thunderous, syrupy, woody, dirty, wooly,organic" or some BS. I still think though you guys scoop your mids too much on your dude ranch soundalikes oops wrong thread

  34. I've noticed there isn't much pro shot footage of blink from the TOYPAJ era. I know there's songs like Anthem Part 2 and the three singles of the album that had pro shot footage for TV, CD's, DVD's or whatever but I can't remember seeing them perform any other songs that were pro shot. They did play Reckless Abandon a lot but if I remember correctly all the pro shot footages of that song seems to be from the smiley face era and onwards. I'm aware blink did play the majority of the TOYPAJ album during 2001 and 2002, but all I ever see on YouTube are shitty videos recorded by fans usin

  35. I'm pretty sure Tombots also think Tom's movies are crap. These movies, franchises, books and all are basically just Tom's passion projects that are for Tom's frame of mind more than anything. I've never heard anyone on these forums get excited or talk much about Tom's projects outside of music. No one cares including the Tombots. Now his music? Yeah, people get excited for that.

  41. Yes @Italian Throwaway please respond. How do you justify taking potential donations to a charity by not posting links to Mark's twitch streams and just re-uploading them yourself? Are instagram likes more important than the work the charity does?
