  1. Pathetic is and always has been one of my favourite blink songs. It's brilliant.

  3. Man, Pathetic should still be a staple of their live set. It's the perfect back-and-forth between Mark and Tom. Have they ever played it with Matt?

  4. Thing is I wasn't expecting anything from MGK album, him turning out a few fun decent pop punk songs was a pleasant surprise and I enjoyed it for what it was. I hold blink-182 to a different standard than I do a rapper who is making a pop punk album for a bit of fun funnily enough. If MGK released California I'd actually enjoy it a lot more I think, I'd take it for what it is but I know blink are capable of so much more so it was a disappointment when they released it. Does that make sense to anyone?

  6. To be fair the whole reason I signed up for Twitter was just to follow Mark, Tom, and Travis and to get a text message updates on my phone every time they tweeted in 2009 lol

  7. The album has 3 or so decent songs, the rest of them, including, the deluxe version, are dog shit. It's more or less the same vocal melody run sung with a fat tongue, over and over. Those three though, they're okay ... I wouldn't call it pop punk, at least not how I see it but they're okay.

  8. Tom hits rock bottom at some point and he gets his reunion/retirement tour/album with the band. That's gotta be the most realistic scenario at this point. If Skiba stays, he gets like 10% of the cut to quietly play rhythm guitar in the background with a light that is half as bright as everyone else in the band. Skiba also ghost writes lyrics for Mark and barks harmonies in the background. The band has some highs and lows depending on the ratio of Tom/Matt mailing it in on any given night.

  12. This album is nice but it's also a bunch of wanna be songs that try to be as good as Bloody Valentine but they don't quite achieve that. Title Track and Drunk Face are the other two good songs though. Other songs have some potential but they would probably stand out a little more if they didn't sound so similar. Having said that, Bloody Valentine is such a great song, it was also on my Spotify wrapped. @Diddy Faplord at this point I would either check the album or just let people enjoy what they enjoy. Have you ever listened to The Last Thing You Forget by Title Fight? That album to me is

  13. Especially when it’s the same shit “I’m coming down from shrooms right now” and “you were so fucked up” etc. We get it. You party.

  14. I'm gonna write my thoughts as I listen. Bloody Valentine is genuinely a good song ... the 3 songs previous weren't. He sings everything with a fat tongue and 4 songs in it's irksome. Lonely is the first honest song on the album and I appreciate that, the verses are well written. The chorus is kind of weak though. The 2 preceding tracks weren't very enjoyable, just more of the same from the first 3 on the album. I didn't mind the chick singing though, it sounded good. WWIII is fun, cheesy but fun, I like it, it's a shame it's so quick. Concert for Aliens reminds me of the

  15. I never really bothered with Alkaline Trio before, I mean I've heard and like a few of their songs but I never sat down and learned any of them ... I was fucking around this morning and figured out Armageddon. It kind of opened my eyes vocally ... I never really spent anytime figure out my vocal range or keys, I always just sort of sang the best I could to varying degrees of success (mostly failure). Learning Armageddon, I found myself singing and matching Skiba's vocals on the verses comfortably and a lightbulb went off. I spent the rest of the day reworking my own songs into different keys t

  17. While I'm barely interested anyway, I don't think it's fair to put their inactivity on them in 2020, theres been a pandemic. Some bands have managed to do stuff in that time but plenty have not, and they did release a new song last year.

  19. Is it tho? People shit on new Blink mainly because: (a) the production sucked (mainly the Cali era, it sounded so flat and compressed); (b) Skiba couldn't replace Tom in terms of the chemistry and guitar riffs (his live performances didn't help either); and (c) the band started hiring outside writers and seemed to lack direction at times. I think those are all legit criticisms that don't really relate to that video.

  20. You need to branch out of the blink section more often. During botbm last year I got him involved in this video I made for the comp. He had fun doing it but made It pretty clear that’s about as much of “coming back” to the boards that he felt like doing.

  21. Hes doing well. He stepped away because he was in a bad place mentally and he was using this place as an excuse to indulge inner demons. He has since been taking better care of himself, cut out the fast food, staying out of politics and just getting himself together. I'll tell him you said hi.

  23. So to the stars Encinitas store is closing and they’re moving strictly to a warehouse just for online orders. Assume it’s just that retail is dead during the pandemic so keeping that store open is a money sink. They say they’re looking for a new location for a store, which I imagine means there’s no reason to run a store the next twelve months while a pandemic is still happening. But yea definitely seems like some struggling.

  27. You've made this assessment based on listening to a few seconds of one song? You're clowning yourself dude. If you think MGK is a douche in general, that's an entirely different opinion

  33. What I love about Toms music of the last decade is that it's unpredictable. Blink without Tom has just consistently bored me and has left me just uninterested, while Tom has either pleasantly surprised me, or has released something so fucking dreadful that I'm seething in horror. Gotta hand it to the man, it's never dull.

  35. "pathetic" ? it's not brain surgery. plus i think skiba can learn and play whatever blink songs he wants to. the operative word here is want.

  36. MGK Is the next guest slated for SNL, so I’m assuming Travis comes with him. This should be Travis‘s second spot on the show if I’m not mistaken, which isnt a super rarity, but it’s pretty cool

  37. so i did a bit more detective work. remember i mentioned that the ampeg VLs are known to be a bit noisy when overdriven, and i have a BOSS noise suppressor pedal in my effects loop? turns out, so did tom. i also have a furman power conditioner and the very same 90s korg rack tuner in my setup. you can see the white pedal sitting inside the empty 1U bay:

  39. @Q182 @blinkstillrules... my VL-1002 is ready for pickup. completely retubed, cleaned, voltage tested, noise and hum eliminated, completely re-soldered. $50. edit: it still has a bit of a hiss when it's fully overdriven, but the BOSS noise suppressor pedal i have in the effects loop takes care of that. i got some short patch cables and velcroed it to the back of my cabinet.
