    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Everyone saying that it will be good for Mark "not to feel constrained by blink expectations"....are you fucking dumb? The only reason blink now has "expectations" is because Mark has forcibly and purposely put them into the self-created, pop-punk, stereotypical-sounding box. No one wanted something like California, especially after Matt joined, and we got the most cookie-cutter sounding blink album because Mark wanted to become relevant and put on the radio again. In no way to I feel sympathy for this random box Mark feels blink has to be a part of, and the longer blink is controlled by Mark and Feldy, the more I believe Mark is either too scared to pursue any alternative ideas, or he just doesn't have any anymore (probably a combination of both, tbh). Tom drove the bus during Self-Titled, and clearly tried to during Neighborhoods. He forced Mark to also write quickly and without much thought with the DED album, which still is miles ahead creative-wise than anything on California 1/2. Mark was also free to experiment with +44 as much as his heart content, and he made a fucking awesome record. The problem was, he received no money or recognition from it. The guy can't survive being out of the limelight (just look at all his collabs with pop-artists and relevant pop-punk bands post-breakup), and clearly wants to keep the blink money circulating through the mainstream.... And while all that is fine and dandy, in no way do I think that it sucks or is terrible or a problem that Mark has because of blink. He willingly created the problem that is now blink's hardcore cookie-cutter, pop-punk sound. And it suck$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    The NHL thread

    Hah you're right they did; that was poor grammar. I meant the criticism to be in tandem rather than separate. Reducing the goaltenders gear has been enough clearly, though in my opinion too much.

    Black Mirror Series 5

    Exactly the point. Entire show was incredibly meta, and what I found interesting was that it referenced your "mistakes" in the show as well (if you chose a certain way of going, which the show decided was moot and made you go back, it would actually reference it slightly. For example, when you get sent back to choose to work from home instead of in the office, they reference the fact you've been there before. So, when they force you to choose certain pathways, as you said, one of the overarching themes is to be questioning your free-will and ability to make decisions. Are you making the decisions, really? It's a bit of a blunt way to get you to think of that, but there's so many levels of this same theme arising that I think it was crafted pretty creatively. Originally, I really disliked the episode for the same reason. Then, after going down the hole deeper, I really fucking loved that episode. Anyone else go down the route where "explain what Netflix is" was an option? Had a good laugh about making the life more exciting.

    Because, and thank god, this sounds nothing like Cali

    We need to talk about Matt Skiba

    His first show with his new band was cut short because he was pretty much blackout if I recall - I also think think they went crazy and got youtube to remove any and all videos of it? I can't seem to find any online but I'm fairly certain that was a thing

    Tom is an unlimited tank of decent ideas - but needs Mark and Travis to really get there. He's tried for over a decade to do it alone and proved he can't - even in his prime (The Adventure). But jesus, Mark literally cannot produce any original or thought provoking ideas. Tom pushes Mark, and actually pushes him, to become a better musician. IT MAKES ME SO MAD - HOW DO THEY NOT SEE HOW MUCH BETTER THEY ARE TOGETHER! Ugh.

    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    deadmau5 had a creative way about going about playing his fan-favourite song and pretty much makes fun of everyone who likes it. but still knows how important it is to the show. hilarious live stuff here Pretty much, halfway through the set and into the intro, all the music gets cut off with him helling FUCK. FUCK. FINE. FOR FUCKS SAKE. (Then the video starts). Followed by a bunch of stupid animals with his mask looking disabled rendered onto a bunch of weird animal bodies and a shot of him slamming his head onto a keyboard to the beat - including memes of him puking and wearing the dealwithit.jpg glasses

    Travis having blood clots in arms

    Lmao, yeah they should <<definitely>> do the tour without what is essentially the one guy holding this "band" together! Could you imagine them trying to sell blink as blink, with just Mark Hoppus. It wouldn't surprise me if they had tried, but good god that would be a low-point in the "we have sold out to live comfortably" era of blink for sure.

    Yea, the post where it was on the Strange Times script talking about a Sex Ed class in highschool, going in detail of the dildo or something they were using to put the condom on. It was super weird.

    The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

    I feel bad for Tom. Dude could have had any woman he wanted in the world at one point - and now, the one that he chose to stick by him through thick and thin and sickness and health (and good God is he not healthy) ends up bailing. Hard to blame her, but at the same time sucks for him too. For real though, I think anyone who sticks with their highschool lover is bound to have an incredibly difficult time staying positive with their S/O over time. People change...like, a lot after highschool. Hell I feel like I change every year. The idea of staying with the exact same person is baffling to me because by the end of it, you're two completely separate people. It's not wrong - it's just natural. I feel like you don't really get a grip or an idea about who you are and what you want probably into your later 20s at the earliest.
