  3. It's weird, I don't know how to describe it exactly but this "nu pop punk" stuff just doesn't even seem real to me. It feels like some industry players like Travis are just shaping random TikTok personalities into carefully curated pop-punk clones. Yes, I know, tons of 00s pop punk bands were inauthentic as well, including Blink themselves in some ways. But at that time it felt like the industry plucking up pop-punk bands from the pop-punk world and making them bright and shiny for mass consumption. This feels more like the industry plucking up people who have nothing to do with that world and putting them into pop-punk Halloween costumes.

  5. Idk how people know this shit. I hear about “the family” but never know much of anything about any of them. Do you watch the show or something? I don’t really get the fame because they seem very uninteresting to me.

  6. Just got home from the show in New Jersey tonight, they killed it. They sounded great and it was a good time. Very happy I made it out tonight,drank some alcohol and enjoyed myself. Tom was having fun and the setlist was pretty good, solid end to the weekend. their merch absolutely sucks tho.

  9. Travis was on SNL for real tonight playing with Young Thug. No idea who that is but the songs were cool. Fuck Laura Jane Grace lol, very odd attack. Travis has been doing the same thing for 20 years and a lot of what he’s done has been irrelevant. He kept doing what he wants and didn’t give a shit. Now he’s having major success so it’s bringing out the haters. Honestly it’s pathetic. Especially the blink “fans” shitting on him.

  10. just was reading the new book by dave grohl, the storyteller, which is entertaining. i didn't know this until now, but apparently both foo fighters and blink share the same tour manager, gus brandt. i'd been reading this whole book wondering why he kept referring to a "gus" while on tour, then it hit me haha. don't know why that surprised me, but i found it interesting nonetheless. blink gets exactly one mention, in the context of performing a big day out 00:

  12. Feels like I'm the only one that still absolutely loves the recent drumming from Travis. I love all that flashy or complicated shit he pulls out. The drums in Kaleidoscope, Fighting the Gravity and Heart's All Gone are great. Not a fan of how the drums sound on California, but I still love the drumming on that album, especially on Los Angeles and 6/8. The drums on the outros of Generational Divide and No Heart to Speak Of are quality too. I guess I just love his overplaying style. I can see why people don't like it but I love it

  14. I thought Travis was great on neighborhoods. His drumming really elevated those songs and made them interesting. After that I haven’t noticed anything interesting

  15. LJG has a very old school idea of punk. That was probably her way to say that she can't stand this new wave of pop punk carried entirely by Travis.

  16. Can’t believe a guy who named his company Famous, collects Cadillacs, and had a reality TV show on MTV enjoys fame.. And as for drumming technique or whatever, no one ever scolded Tom for hanging his guitar to his knees. It looked cool, who cares? Mercenary chasing $$? He always prioritizes his main band, but loves working with other artists. He has work ethic mixed with love of drumming, why is that something to shit on? Very odd flex from Laura Jane Grace

  18. Travis looks cool af when he plays tbh. His exaggerated playing style is kind of ridiculous and over the top but I think it makes it really fun to watch instead of just to listen to.

  24. While I generally do my best to avoid spoilers, I don't think they ruin things. A good story (or setlist?) should be enjoyable even if you know exactly what's going to happen. Surprises should just enhance the experience, not make or break it.

  29. to each their own - to my point those songs would have been very different songs not just recordings and I think that was pretty clear to the band. I do think Scott is under appreciated though. his playing although simple was actually quite stylistic in the way that Tom’s guitar playing was/is.

  31. Secret Crowds being played should not require a spoiler alert because people should know if they have to listen to that song in advance. That’s a bathroom break for sure

  32. Illan is one of those typical child prodigy kids who have incredible talent for whatever endeavor it is, but don’t really seem to have passion for it. He’s amazing, so I’m not trying to pull a LJG here, but he is the definition of a mercenary. he joined with Tom in order to pimp out his personal band, which is fine, but still. Isn’t like he is super loyal to AVA or something.

  34. I don't think she meant his playing style. At least I'd hope not.. That shit is still cool, signature blink vibes. Tom playing guitar lower than 90% of the population was also cool. That doesn't make them assholes. The things they do outside of music makes them assholes.

  35. She’s just jealous that Travis is still relevant and she’s a fucking nobody. Famous for chopping her dick off, well done.

  36. Travis is one of the most fun drummers to watch. He’s a deeply weird person but it’s always a treat to see him play!

  39. MGK is literally the guy who said “I am weed” and made Megan Fox think "wow this is HOT, let's date". Now there's a big chance Travis and KK are a little bit better than that.

  40. I saw an interview with Chris Shiflett like 10 years ago where he was showing around a studio and he said "this the room where I auditioned for Foo Fighters but it's also known for being the room where blink-182 decided to break up in 2005" so random haha

  43. I will never get over how awkward it is seeing him without a guitar lol. I would think the low talking bits would be incredibly easy for him and even that sounds all over the place.

  45. Too hard to rank them all but Bored to Death, Cynical, and No Heart to Speak Of are all top-tier blink songs that rival the best stuff they put out previously. NINE as a whole is pretty great. California disc 1 is pretty average. California disc 2 is poo poo pee pee

  47. it's definitely a very unusual show. sometimes the writing is terrible, sometimes it's great -- and none of that can matter unless the audience is tuned in. it's mainly tourists in the audience at nearly midnight on a saturday, and if they aren't laughing, it won't catch fire. plus it's always at war with having a broad sensibility and being for comedy nerds. for a sketch to do really well, like more cowbell back in the day, is surprising.

  48. Hey guys I'm really sorry that the sneakers haven't been shipped and that it took me so long to respond. I have my reasons why I didn't manage to do it sooner but, but they don't justify my behavior and I don't want to make up excuses why I didn't. I never intended not to ship them or for it to take this long, and I didn't respond because I was too ashamed and didn't know how to respond, or wanted to respond after I finally shipped them. I'm really sorry about this and I feel awful. The Shoes have been sitting in a box ready to be shipped for ages and I promise to bring them to the postal office on Monday after work. I'll throw in a little extra for you @Marik sorry for the long wait. That wasn't this boards fault but mine alone. I'll send you the Tracking number and receipt as soon as it's gone out. Sorry for letting you guys down
