  6. That Album Launch stream was incredible, truly the most heartwarming Blink content I've seen in SO long. I taped that on a VHS when it was on MTV and watched it so many times back in the day haha. It was nice to see Mark interacting with those fun Blink memories and not seeming uncomfortable or putting on a front. It seems like he's more at peace with the past and the thought of Tom as a positive former presence in his life. To be honest I have a friend like that as well, you can have a painful mental-health related "breakup" with a best friend but as time goes on you learn to appreciate

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. Hey all — link below for the MP3s! The quality is UNREAL. I’m excited to hear everyone’s thoughts. The New Hope demo… I have no words. @daveyjones is going to pop in with some more details! HUGE thank you to Davey for this. Not only for doing the legwork and sharing his knowledge (as always), but also for being a lovely human with endless love and positivity for this band. I’m super excited to have this little tape, but it would be pretty useless without your help, Davey, and without communities like this. Anyway, enjoy!! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1WoMCY09

  19. It's not even that it's formulaic, Blink has always been formulaic but they had a unique sound and style that no other band could pull off and I feel like that bit of charm and charisma is missing now. It's not even that these songs are bad, they're technically good, catchy songs but they don't have any real character, at least not the character the band used to have and that's not an "I miss Tom" statement. Mark, Matt and Travis are very capable and talented musicians and songwriters. So why is everything coming off so disingenuous. I don't believe it's working with other writers and artists,

  20. i don't know anybody who listens to music or values it based on grammy nominations. let's stop pretending like that matters at all. enema of the state was their most successful album and the peak of their career but it wasn't nominated for anything. the grammy nomination doesn't suddenly make california on par or better than it. nor does it mean the band is doing better than ever.

  25. 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).

  27. Hi everyone. I've installed the latest update to the forums, there's a number of visual changes in this update and a bunch of stuff behind the scenes. Visually, I'm aware the logo up the top is now really small - I'll see if I can sort this out. There's also a number of re-indexing tasks still running as a part of this, you might notice the boards running a little slow for an hour or two but once these are done things should be back to normal. If you come across any issues please reply here and I'll do my best to sort it out.

  28. Relistening to Neighborhoods with some proper headphones, shit - it gets better as time goes on. It's forward-thinking, it's a great (in places) alternative rock album ( I guess that's where it fits). There are some disjointed duds that kill the pacing and hinder the quality of the album. In spite of that, Ghost, Hearts All Gone, Natives, Kaleidoscope , Wishing Well and Even If She Falls are all fantastic songs. They're mature, have things lingering sadnes/wistfullness that kind of seeps through every bit of the album. It's a perfect album to listen to in a city at night, which I guess fi

  31. the band -- the real one, mark/tom/trav -- will likely never be the same again, on creative and personal levels. this was proven with the reunion era being so rocky. i get your point: it's not lost on me how awful those years were, waiting for a cohesive band and being promised lies. there were still sparks of greatness, but they were few and far between. but it's my belief now that when tom walked in 2014, forging ahead was simply a mistake. a noble one -- mark/trav owe it to the fans, and to themselves -- but it just isn't right, and never has been. you suggest too that i try to get int

  32. Surely no one here actually thinks that California was nominated for its musical merits as a standalone album? It was purely a legacy award to acknowledge blink for all their past work and the fact they never got one when they were at their peak. Anyone with half a brain can see that.

  33. does anyone sort-of feel their enjoyment of this band slipping? five years in, i really feel a need to re-evaluate what this era is doing to the band as a whole. when i put on the old records (CC--neighborhoods, even) there's a spark present. listening back, it's clear blink was always very accessible, but there were interesting instrumental breaks and creative sonic choices that put them above, in my mind, the rest of the pack. with feldmann at the helm as of now, there's a complete absence of ANYTHING interesting. that falling demo, unfinished as it is, is a good example... re-use of th

  35. So you're saying they wanted to collaborate with matt but he just can't afford an audio interface and headphones so they have to leave him out... Yup, makes sense.... If they wanted to start writing songs together with matt, they could.

  37. mark had a single ernie ball music man (black with white pickguard) through cheshire cat and into the DR era. i took this on stage at SOMA on nov 1, 1996: the first time i saw him play with a fender bass was warped tour 97. i believe this was before he was sponsored by them. he played that fender ( a single light blue P) throughout the summer with his black MM as backup: by the spring of 98 he had gained a sponsorship with ernie ball and had several MMs in various colors. from my own pictures i count at least four: two pale blue, one pink, and one green:

  41. As a blink-182 collector, one of the most sought after items you can own is an original "Buddha" cassette tape. They recorded this in January 1994 at Doubletime Studios and released it through a friend's label "Filter Records". The original run is thought to be around 1,000 tapes, which Mark and friends put together by hand as seen in Anne's book: These tapes are black with white text, and look like this: If the story were to stop here, all would be fine. However, throughout the years 3 more "variants" have appeared which are as follows: 1. Black Tape with

  42. Some of the "worst" examples of potential misogyny definitely seem more self-deprecating than anything. A surface-level analysis of a lyric like "I need a girl that I can train" could definitely conclude that it's sexist, but listening to the whole song and considering the broader context of their antics makes me think Tom was writing from the perspective of a character, a pathetic one, at that.
