  1. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. So crazy that he came up with the intro riff while trying to learn this: Can totally hear it.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  10. It doesn't sound like Adam's Song, it just has the same 1-2-1 style picking for the riff.

  11. That one is actually a pretty cute little children’s book. I have a copy, I’m sure I would have loved reading it every Christmas as a kid. We’re definitely not the target audience but I think that specific project succeeded at being exactly what it was trying to be.

  12. tom thrives on the simple stuff. it's when he starts trying to be co-writer and kick off massive "franchises" in the effort to be the next star wars that he overestimates his own ability. baby steps, my guy

  13. I dunno. That dude probably had a rad time the day this pic was taken. Not sure if there's a story behind the tatt or if it's misspelled or something but i think it's cool he got the ink done and showed the band.

  14. i think it's worth mentioning some of us just love Tom's music and don't really care what else he does. if you think it's dumb, don't waste your money on it and move on with your life. it's annoying that it gets in the way of his music, but he really doesn't care what we think so why should anyone else haha

  16. it's a bit subjective. voyeur was originally on a more successful album and then it eventually appeared on the mark, tom, and travis show. you're probably looking at over million CDs with voyeur on it sold by 2001. m+m's was in fact a legit single but like you said, it wasn't on MTV. and i doubt radio stations outside of socal played it often, if at all.

  17. I think it's called taking your time, I know you Skibabots think that churning out 20 songs in a few months is normal but it isn't for most artists. Good to see Tom taking his music serious again.

  18. yea i saw it before i even joined the boards. one of those lists of fails, pictures taken from reddit, like people painting their own cars and fucking them up, or adding on to their own houses poorly.

  19. yea, you got mendella'ed. according to discogs, the b-side appears to be "don't me that it's over" and sometimes also "mother's day." i find it difficult to believe that any dude ranch track would be attached to a travis-era release. the only time they've done this (repeatedly) is in repackaging "i won't be home for xmas."

  21. 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

  23. TOTTM, for example, could straight up be on TOYPAJ it is such a great throwback. And that's with Skiba singing and Skiba style lyrics.

  24. Of course it reminds Skiba of Enema and TOYPAJ. They've been using that line since Cali. Nothing Skiba has ever been on with blink sounds like old-school blink. I actually like Nine. Doesn't mean it sounds like classic-blink.

  27. The Lonely Astronaut on Christmas Eve actually has a rating of 4.63 on GoodReads. That is not bad or mediocre in any way. I haven't read it but it does sound charming

  29. Wasn’t that one of the mtv diaries? He is with his mum and he just grabs like 50 black shirts and shoved them in his bag. Or did he do that on cribs as well?

  35. Aside from not having source material to rely on, my main issue with the last two seasons is that they transitioned from political, dialogue driven, 3D dimensional characters to big action movie that relied more on action than anything else. Littlefinger is the best example of this, as he went from a subtle mastermind to a transparent moron. I also didn’t like the change in format to shorter seasons with a higher budget. They should have kept the 10 episode format as it allowed for more breathing room and dialogue, as opposed to characters traveling across the continent in one episode and

  40. Ok that makes more sense. I didn’t read the whole thread, just laughed my ass off at Oliver’s post. I don’t understand why everyone here hates Jon though. Seems like everyone is jealous. You won’t find anyone on YouTube who recreates Tom’s tones better or plays their songs more accurately. Haters gonna hate. I mean you got people here like Speedo who will stick up for and defend Oliver’s delusional narcissistic behavior while at the same time condemning someone Like Jon. All you need is this post to see how insane and selfish Oliver is. But the thing is there’s a million other threads just lik

  44. I have a copy, it's pretty forgettable but it is for children and I am not one nor do I have any to read it to. The illustrations are pretty cool, though. Here's a video of it being read, if you're interested: https://globalnews.ca/video/6787592/studio-story-time-the-lonely-astronaut-by-tom-delonge
