    @Q182 @blinkstillrules i suppose this is the thead for this. but i was chatting with mark today and he confirmed that all of dude ranch was tracked on a studio bass at the suggestion of mark trombino, who did not like the sound of his 1985 fender P. so no fender and no black MM on DR.

    the bass? mark texted trombino for me and trombino thinks it was a schecter. mark remembers it being made out of bubinga wood. so something like this:


    THEN mark emailed big fish studios. if they still have the bass, he wants to buy it.

    so there you go. all of DR was tracked on a boutique hippy bass.

    Man, that's it ... Mark, you sellout!

    Yep. Just give me some good music I enjoy. Doesn’t bother me if there’s extra hands in there helping make it.

    I think I'm mostly picky because it's a genre I'm rooted in. Blink and Green Day were the only real pop punk acts of that genre I liked growing up and I defended them a lot from my "punk-as-fuck" friends ... who are now mostly into shitty folk bands. Back then blink and Green Day stood apart from the other shitty coattail bands that popped up. Pop punk then, and now, always had a different meaning to me that was more connected with the underground than MTV or radio. That's not an elitist pov, I don't mean it like that ... they just had that same, one of the gang energy to them. Now, though, both those bands lost that energy for me and I exclude them from my pop punk classification.

    Definitely, but he clearly lives that lifestyle. I watched the making of Bloody Valentine on YouTube and he’s smoking blunts in the studio nonstop. There’s nothing about his persona and lyrics that would seem disbelievable IMO.

    Admittedly, I don't know the first thing about the guy. I've only ever heard the Bloody Valentine song because it was on THPS1+2. It's a decent enough song, I was blown away by it our anything and I don't have any want to delve further into his work but I bob my head along nonetheless. That's okay too ... more power to the guy ... go out there, live the life you wanna live and get paid to do it. Good on him. I can't comment on his music or pop punk in the same vein ... its just not my style, it's not meant for me. I mean, I can comment ... and I will but I have no authority in the matter. People should like what they like and hate what they hate and stop worrying about 34 year old dad-bodded, failed-musicians.

    I believe a lot of his lyrics...he’s young, irresponsible, and reckless. Why would substance abuse and anxiety be disbelievable? 

    Those subjects do tend to be trendy when trying to portray yourself as an outsider. Its been that way for decades all across mediums.

    I still think The Force Awakens is the best of the sequel trilogy even if it is episode 4 rehash but I felt it had set up enough cool stuff that if properly explored in the next movies could’ve been great.

    I think the problem is that it felt like a rehash ... every story is essentially a rehash of every other story, blah blah blah ... its the details that separate and make the story unique and, personally, I feel like the new trilogy failed in that regard. They took the character arcs of the original trilogy, applied them to new characters but didn't really spend anytome developing those characters. Rey was essentially Luke but without the struggle and failure that made him the character he was ... there was a lot of things happening but not a lot going on, if you get my meaning.

    Yes that's you and you're wrong again! Hopefully the 2020s has more variety than boring indie bands that all sound the same. It would take a lifetime to listen to all the bad/boring albums released in the last 10 years

    I thought old people were supposed to be wise ... you're like the deficient that lived ...

    Lmao it's not going strong anymore, in the 2010s it was basically dead. There's just a million indie alt bands now zzzzzz. I don't know why this fringe genre is still around, it got boring like 10 years ago.

    You know you're wrong when the resident pedophile takes your side.

    Really hasn't been, not really sure why you're sticking to this idea. Theres been fucking loads of good stuff. Just because you haven't heard it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. 

    The guy gets erect for the new SW trilogy and California, what do you expect?

    There's been a lot of pop punk over the years, the mainstream just isn't interested in it. 

    It's been going strong since the 80s ('74 if you count Ramones ... which, I do), mainstream or not. There's been a ton of great pop punk/power pop records in the last decade.

  10. I've been on a bit of a Richard Matheson kick lately. I've read through I Am Legend and I'm currently reading What Dreams May Come. Both are excellent and I highly recommend them ... as well as the majority of Matheson's work.

    I'm also about a third of the way through Mythos by Stephen Fry ... its a retelling of Ancient Greek Myths. Again, highly recommend!

    When @Ry-Breadactually gets this set up he should move the Mark questions to it's own thread to make it easier for him and just everyone in general. Hopefully Mark will let you do a multiple part interview. 

    I'm not sure Ry should listen to any of us at all.
