  1. the location does not matter, the length of the performance does. 70 minutes of playing guitar, singing, jumping, talking about funny shit is enough to prove that he is the better performer. (spoiler: he will fail in the first 3 minutes.)
  2. i think matt plays shows almost every day while he also has a lady friend around...
  3. you say so, but yet you could never prove anything you've bragged about. where's the song you wrote in 5 minutes? where's a live performance of you playing guitar and singing for 90 minutes? you have never delivered anything but excuses.
  4. don't kid yourself, you would be out of breath after 20 minutes at a real live show.
  5. because royalties weren't paid on a monthly basis. travis probably had writing credits for toypay, but it is possible that he hadn't seen money from it until mid 2002 or so.
  6. i think he appeared in the mtv cribs episode with travis. travis talked about giving drum lessons to local kids, and 13-year-old ilan rubin sat behind his drum kit.
  7. find the greatest common divisor of i wanna be a warhol, dogs eating dogs, lycanthrope, heart's all gone, and this song clip, then you'll see. (hint: it's the drum beat and the guitar sound.)
  8. time to bitch about symphonic orchestras for reading the music sheet.
  9. matt uses the teleprompter because he finds it hard to remember which verse is the next one. it's not like he doesn't know the lyrics at all. taking a glimpse at them makes the performances a lot less stressful... he talked about it to a friend of mine a while ago.
  10. (edit: wrong topic, but i leave it here...) i joined the insta live when mark said "you don't have to whisper" to someone. than he realized that "oh, i said a freaking angels and airwaves thing. ? i said you don't have to whisper." "new single coming soon? um, not for a minute. blame it on my youth's last week was the biggest gainer, so i don't think so." "are you gonna play enema of the state at every single show on this tour this summer? so, um, look forward to that. if you like enema of the state, you're gonna hear it all summer long, it will be fun." "you gotta tell us when the album drops. we're still figuring out the release date of the album." "mark, when tom back to blink-182? ? no, no plan. we are on good terms, everyone's friendly with one another, supportive. ?" "what's your memory about the original josie underwater video? i remember that, um, it was very cold, it was freezing cold, and it was pouring rain at the time." "did not for real turned into home is such a lonely place? no, not for real is not that song, it did not come as that." about the enema question and answer: he has not said exactly that they will play the entire album at every show. i think they'll just play enema songs in a bigger dose.
  11. tom said "mark and i talked about blink's future" because tom wanted attention for himself. mark said "we never talked about it" because he didn't want stupid speculations. you don't need to be inside someone's head to see their intentions. especially after everything's said and done.
  12. bands do this all the time for a simple reason: when they release a leftover song months after the album, the fans will like it for sure, because it already sounds familiar, even if the album felt different than the previous ones. blink made a mistake when they selected the "best songs" for california, then released another 10 songs for the deluxe. they should have release a longer album with all kind of songs in the first place, then release the similar sounding leftovers later. i think "no future" or "teenage satellites" would stand out as b-sides, people would appreciate them more if they were the extras of a live/acoustic ep, for example. as we can see, on the main album they are skippable songs for the most.
  13. because they used their only official live video (heart's all gone) for it. the new promo department is lame as fuck.
  14. i'm sure it's all about marketing. blink needs hype for the new album. "mark and tom are friendly with each other again" is a nice way to get attention. it generates speculations, so the band's name is everywhere... but in fact being friendly or talking about the distant future don't mean anything. things like these don't change the band, it only changes its public image. the same thing goes for tom/ava. tom needs hype for the new ava album, so he's all in for getting attention. he did it all the time when blink released something. he posted a blink-related picture on instagram, then right after a tts/ava promo pic... so the new thing is that mark does the same: he posts something about tom, then tries to sell blink and simple creatures... at first it felt like he's doing it with a comedic manner ("if tom did it all the time, i'll do it too, and no one can say i'm wrong, and after all i'll laugh at my evil plan as it was just a joke"), but now it looks like they built a strategy over it, probably on label-level. it's good for both parties. i don't think tom will be back to blink. yet i think it's good that they talk about it in interviews, because it calms the annoyed stupid fans down.
  15. i think you should treat yourself the same way as you treat others. are you melting down at this moment because you reacted "incorrectly" to a comment months ago? or because some other guys on the internet say your songs/books/posts/anything are awful? by your logic you're in existential crisis for at least 6 years now... by the logic of anyone else: mark doesn't give a fuck about the criticism of idiots of a message board. it doesn't cause a meltdown.
  16. yeah, when i first heard biomy it instantly reminded me to the rock show.
  17. what is the problem? mark started bands when he was bored. not exactly blink, but pier 69 or the attic children or plus-44 or simple creatures...
  18. biomy is a nice track, but i can't see it would be good live. btd is great on the album, and it sounds great live.
  19. it's not their favorite. the label wanted a nostalgic song as the lead single. the label had those co-writers/co-producers to make the song sound like what they want. this song is like the rock show - the label wanted a different lead single, so they wrote a new song in the last minute.
  20. they should create a road movie-like music video for this song where they're driving a car in the middle of nowhere, and just laughing at everything. maybe something like this would be enough: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MC4jx1SDEI, but on a desert road, with happier faces, slower tempo. or a nicely produced video with flashbacks or other type of extra footage. i guess it would put this song into better perspective, the visual content would help accepting the mood of the song.
  21. you can never kill my high i’m the ink and you’re the headline big raccoon, big raccoon on my street big raccoon, big raccoon on my street ♪♫♫
