  1. on february 17, 1995 cheshire cat was released on grilled cheese/cargo records on both cassette and compact disc. a vinyl release (the "red eyes" edition) would not follow until the summer of 1996. in honor of the album's original release, here are some gems from that time... cargo announced the release with this sheet, mailed to record stores, venues, and show promoters. note that the release date of "17" is handwritten as there were some delays and uncertainty about when the album would be ready. the formats listed are both CD and cassette. this is the first release on the "grilled chee

  2. Yo! I decided to launch a blink-182 podcast and have been working hard the past few weeks to figure out how the hell to do it. The name I came up with is "182 News" and I hope it will be a great source of blink-182 and related side band news for the community. I bounced around making it based on the board, but for various reasons (namely you can't use the word "blink-182" in the title, and the equipment cost me a lot of money) ultimately felt I needed the freedom to do my own thing, on my own schedule. But, I am totally pointing all traffic here, to our social media, and also hope to have boar

  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

  8. I don't see a single reason to debate, or argue or goad someone who's opinion is: this was wrong. The guy stabbed many, literally heartbreakingly tortured his partner, the list goes on and on. I see a lot of the justification from his die-hard fans ignoring the situations themselves in favor of "He sounds/looks so sad i hate it so much". It's simply no excuse. To me, at least. Alive or not, I don't like that they did this, and I'm grateful I feel the way I do. Abuse is abuse is abuse, and I couldn't ever agree nor deny that I'm perhaps biased based on a situation of constant emotion

  9. Damn I'm listening to Untitled for the first time in a long time right now and I mean... it's just so clear that this doesn't remotely feel like the same band anymore. I respect that Mark feels the need to keep the name alive and all but holy shit. Sometimes it hits me all over again how much Blink 182 has devolved. Even though Nine was pretty good haha, it still just doesn't compute as Blink when I compare it to the "real" Blink albums, especially at the top of their game.

  18. I have documented and studied blink-182 autographs for over 7+ years at this point, and I thought it’d be cool to do a “Top 10” of some sort showing off what I consider the rarest and most sought after items. If you are ever bored to death and fading fast, here is the entire SIGNATURE STUDY. If you have items signed by the band, I would love to see them! In regards to blink-182 autographs, it is important to note that full band signed items are overall quite rare (and often forged, be careful). For the purposes of this “Top 10”, I quickly realized I needed some rules in place which are:

  21. 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,

  22. 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.

  24. if someone has the dude ranch demos and doesn't want to share them, i think it's pretty lame, personally, but whatever. that's their prerogative. i don't have a right to tell them what to do with their mp3 collection. what does bother me is: 1.) that blink is a band who doesn't try to connect with multiple generations of their fans and doesn't honor their own creative legacy by choosing to not release deluxe anniversary editions of albums, b-side collections, or copious live records. you know, like just about every other band in the rock genre. mark and tom have always been forward t

  28. 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).

  30. 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

  33. 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

  34. 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.

  35. 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
