  1. Someone posted that calendar and it says a live music video, presumably like the one for Wishing Well.
  2. Two things kill it for me: 1) weak chorus (both lyrically and melodically); and 2) Tom’s Californiasms during the line “mahkin’ ow in ma caw.”

  4. The only time I watched Alex Mack was the ending as it aired right before Are You Afraid of the Dark? on Friday evenings. I remember her ability to transform and turn into chrome looked like the identical special effects that the Capri Sun commercials used.
  5. The melody in Tom’s verses in “See You” reminds me of a song but I can’t for the life of me figure it out. Anyone know what previous Blink/AvA/BCR song has this melody?

  7. If we’re going by sales, Animal Crossing is the 2nd highest selling game on Switch (after Mario Kart).
  8. Showtime just put out a trailer for a miniseries based on it, coming out next year. This book is massive, like 1,200+ pages. Surprised they could cover it all in a miniseries.
  9. 1. Turpentine 2. Dance With Me 3. Bad News 4. Anthem Part 3 5. Cut Me Off
  10. I finished the Dark Forest by Liu Cixin, pretty great ending. Excited to check out the final book of the trilogy and Netflix film. Finishing up the Fall of Hyperion now and started Shogun as well. Both pretty gripping books so far.
  11. Just about finished season 1 of Narcos. I know I’m about a decade late, but great show. It’s shot beautifully and I really enjoy the real footage they sprinkle in.
  12. I still hear Tom yelling “wear a rubber” in the background and I don’t think I can ever unhear it
  13. Some of Tom’s solo album were Blink demos, no?
