  1. had a great time exploring san diego, and LA, for some blink history. stopping by sombrero was obviously the highlight; the food was fantastic. i also stopped by tom’s childhood home/garage where blink started, and saw the light pole mark climbed haha. truly surreal! i also drove by the flower shop that used to house SOMA, as well as both signature sound studios and rolling thunder. both just boring, boxy office buildings… i don’t know what i expected. still, it was fun to see where tom broke the fuck/cock guitar haha. i also visited belmont park on the beach, where some of the video for M+Ms was filmed. didn’t see DML/doubletime or lou’s records but i’m sure i’ll be back at some point. socal is gorgeous. and in LA i by happenstance passed crossroads which is pretty cool haha, and drove up to zuma beach near malibu where part of the ATST video was shot. here’s some photos from the trip:

  2. Mark said on stream he has Stage 4 Diffuse large B cell lymphoma and his test is tomorrow to see if he has to either do a final 3 rounds of chemo if it worked or possibly try bone marrow transplants if things haven’t gotten better. He said his mom had that cancer as well and beat it (as well as breast cancer) so here’s to kicking it’s ass again in the family 💪

  3. Without Blink 182 Online, I wouldn't have met some of the most amazing people that are part of the community here (I truly cherish this place and I don't regret at all signing up on this legendary forum ❤️ ) Especially @boxelder who created the Timeline website and trusted me with everything linked to it (you're a legend!) @Elisa (that I met IRL and is an absolute sweetheart) and @_Bagel (the nicest, handsome and coolest English person I know) : everyone here is so nice and the community isn't toxic as well (that's the most important element that differ us from all of those Blink fanpages on Instagram)! Blink 182 Online for Ever !!!

  4. Do you know what I’d love more than Tom returning and a new album? mark and Tom, in a room, some snacks and comfy chairs, listening to each album start to finish and talking about them. like a podcast, length of each album. Would make my life.

  5. he goes in for his final chemo round this coming week on wednesday. after that (three weeks or so) he will have another scan to determine if things worked. if things did not work, IIRC the next recourse is bone marrow transplant. if things worked, his doctor said he should be back to pre-cancer strength and health "by the end of the year."

  6. couple things to post since the board is very quiet lately. mark had a piece in GQ's latest issue about his cancer journey. blink-182 italia mercifully posted some excerpts but i'm still looking for the whole thing. here's some key sections: in addition, it looks like he was visiting san diego today with jack; jack posted some really rare blink cassettes and WIP mix CDs on his instagram story. some screenshots here for posterity. i'd love to hear some of these, lol, even the most random "up 5db" mix.

  9. Hi all. I'm new to the boards. I wasn't sure where the best place to post this was, so I apologize if there was a previous thread already about people's collections. I checked with one of the mods first though, and they said it was ok! Anywho - I just wanted to share some pics I just took of the Blink merch. collection I gathered during my teen years. I don't think there's anything particularly rare in there, but it's definitely special to me. I was hoping to connect with some fans - particularly people who came onto the train around Enema like I did. As you can see, my merch. highly reflects being a fan that got involved around 99' as a 13 years old girl. I would still consider them to be my fave band, but haven't explored anything under the actual "Blink 182" name since the reunion occurred with Neighborhoods and the shows around that time. Should I get over this and give the Skiba albums a listen?....I'm scared to, haha. I feel like he's like my dad's new girlfriend and I'm not comfortable or something....... If you see anything in my collection that strikes your fancy and you'd like to see better pics (of the inside of a magazine or some such thing, just lemmy know!). I'll look forward to interacting with you all on here. Link to more/better images: Thanks, Quinn

  10. I think the negative reputation these boards have is both overhyped and undeserved. I stumbled onto these boards and found community and connection at a time when those things were extremely hard to come by. I understand that in terms of the band we can be construed as negative, but that’s because we’re so invested and have loved something for so many years. That’s what happens, you hate the idiosyncrasies or love them. That’s what lends diversity to our views and keeps discussion on the band interesting. However, one thread that unites us all is that we acknowledge the huge effect the band has had on all our lives. I get it can be a little intimidating at first - trying to break in with all the history and the inside jokes. It’s like trying to slowly integrate into a friendship group or a family, because, let’s face it you twats, that’s what this is. However, if you show willingness and have a sense of humour about yourself (more than anything) - you’ll get on fine. Pretty much everyone I’ve met here has been welcoming, knowledgable, funny and caring. Its easy to navigate the site without arguing. The only guy I’ve fought with is a neo nazi, which I think is fair enough. (Not it wasn’t @Depf, he’s actually alright). There’s been zoom calls, WhatsApps and people commiserating and taking the piss. I’ve managed to meet a hero of mine and now there’s a huge charity push for the same man in his time of need? This site is amazing. In the words of another hero of mine - everyday you have to talk to somebody, if I don’t talk to you guys - it’s just not the same day. fuck you

  14. someone from here signed up there to promote the charity drive. when mark saw the donation made, he tagged the person who was promoting: Mark Hoppus — Today at 11:50 AM @propagandhi thanks very much to you and the blink-182 online community for your very generous fundraising and donation! i called attention to the fact that you personally covered the paypal skim: daveyjones — Today at 11:59 AM also, you ought to know because it's so rad...the guy personally covered the cut that paypal took in the gathering (not "propagandhi" but the admin at 182online who organized the charity drive, who is known as "Ghent").

  15. So we’ve reached $1,000 in only a few days. That blows my mind, but we have 27 days left. What is this early 2000s internet relic of a message board capable of? Stay Tuned. It’s moon or bust 🚀

  18. All of these things are true for me: Blink without the Tom + Mark connection does not feel like the same band to me, at all. I also get no personal value out of their music Having this strange Blink Lite living on all these years later makes their old legacy "feel" less perfect in my own mind, but at this point it's fun and entertaining to ride the rollercoaster and keep up with whatever they're up to Tom coming back would make my interest go way up because the Tom + Mark connection is what makes Blink Tom coming back would probably be a hilarious letdown in so many ways

  23. I remember asking my older sister what a blowjob was after listening to The Mark Tom and Travis show. I was 9 at the time. She told me it was when a woman would go and get her hair done. So the next time my mum was going to the hairdresser I asked if she was going to get a blowjob lmao

  24. mark looks happy, dedicated and positive in that picture. really boosted my mood about the whole thing. as a super fan i must admit it’s been hard to process the mark news… which is nothing to how he or his family feels, i’m sure. but seeing him with a huge smile and a wisecrack truly gives me hope.

  31. These vids are brilliant, I wish he did all blink songs or more of them at least. It’s easy to listen to that song and think it’s some throw away pop rock song but it’s so much more than that, for music buffs it’s probably nothing new but for the ordinary music lover like me it’s amazing to hear all the intricate parts of the song and it gives it so much more meaning to me now. The outro is fucking beautiful. Finn is a genius and sorely missed. He really was the fourth member and a massive loss to the band when he died.

  32. God daaaaaamn that went down so smooooooth! That might have been the most "genuine" conversation we've heard between those two since literally before the first breakup. Just shooting the shit about goofy memories, best places to buy doorknobs, families, hobbies, a lengthy but earnest tangent about UFOs, and an overall genuine appreciation for one another. Instead of two guys pretending to be best buds while the mics were on (the way they sometimes seemed during the reunion), it was two guys who admittedly aren't best buds anymore catching up because they still like each other and have a ton of fond memories together. Can't ask for much more than that.

  37. I remember thinking it was really weird when we were doing the charity thing here after we learned about Mark’s cancer and he never promoted it on the board’s social media accounts, which he was still running at the time. In his podcast he often talked about how much he wants opportunities to help people and support good causes and stuff like that and he just totally ignored that we were doing that.

  38. 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

  39. believe it or not, today marks a half-decade since the band released california -- their first album without tom and a surprising turn back to familiar territory. it's crazy to think it's already been that much time... it feels like yesterday it came out! i would say my opinions of the record have softened with time. it's fun to have a big blockbuster comeback album in the band's discography. one may recall i was for whatever reason the one suggesting they partner with big industry player: so, it was exciting to me when it was revealed they were indeed working together. it was obvious the band was lost on neighborhoods and DED, and that finn brought out the best in each of them. i also didn't think having a little bit of digital, pro-tools gloss to the sound would be a bad thing, either. for some reason i remember feeling like blink had another top-40 hit in them, or that it would be beneficial to their legacy in some way to have one. when the album came out though, it was evident that my instincts there were off the mark. even though i still think sober would've been a monster hit lol. i didn't anticipate that feldmann would take so much control... that each song would be stuffed full of gang-vocals, handclaps, production tricks, and more. it was unthinkable, too, that skiba's contributions would appear to slowly be phased out. there's so many moments on california that feel deliberately unusual to hear skiba's voice on, and the lack of memorable guitar riffs suggest he was having trouble adjusting his style to fit blink. still, there's a handful of songs i think are actually among blink's best -- san diego is a hugely important tune in the grand scheme of the band's story, and cynical captures everything that made and makes blink great. the album moves at a great pace until about KOTW, where it all begins to blend together. i know when they were making the LP they'd expressed that the track list seemed a little bloated, but travis was the one suggesting they keep it 16 songs. still: brevity is underrated. cut no future, left alone, TOTTM, and a few others and you'd have a super-solid album in my view. so much has been said about this album over the last five years here... i know this thread may get divisive, and i've already said plenty about it over the years. but it's worth re-examining: what does everyone think about the LP with the benefit of some time? how does it fit into the rest of the catalog?
