  1. great podcast session with @veeRob, @Ry-Bread. a couple notes: - you had to cut it for time, but on my session we talked a bit about the blink-182 mIRC chat channel. i totally remember that rob and anne and mark were on there constantly. - there appears to be some confusion around CD single and a "single" as in a song sent to radio + video for MTV. "apple shampoo" was a CD single for australia only (april 1997). it was never sent to radio in the US. only two singles were sent to US radio: "dammit" was first (in advance of the album drop... 91X and KROQ were playing it in may) and
  2. for sure. steve in the video agrees, saying, they redid vocals and added some more guitar work.
  3. the story of the westbeach sessions + overdubs at doubletime with jeff forest is told in detail in anne hoppus' book. they didn't scrap any material; they just redid vocals and added some more guitar work.
  4. yea totally. he's got the personality of wallpaper paste. where's @Ry-Bread when you need him?!?
  5. god that kid doing the interviewing is super annoying. and why does he break up the session into all these separate clips? just give us an hour with steve.
  6. LOL if you think people aren't supposed to be riddled with contradictory tastes, impulses, and desires then you don't really know much about the human condition.
  7. at least through 97, tom was a no pedal dude. the pic we have from the whiskey show opening for descendents in october 96 shows tom running two VL-1002's, either bridged (like fletcher in PW does with his mesas) or one on clean and one on overdrive. i assume tom recorded at least parts of dude ranch on one of his VL's because a.) it sounds like something he would do b.) trombino isn't a gear hound like jerry finn was, with dozens of amps around to try c.) they were at a rented at-home studio (big fish, encinitas, CA) that probably wouldn't have much gear anyways.
  8. i can't imagine caring about that band in the slightest. maybe it's a brit thing? to me they're in the same bargain bin as coldplay.
  9. i dunno, we were all about the distortion hum back then. i still rock mine. it wails, dirtier than the X2N. that's the axe i use to play bad religion.
  10. i've been listening to a lot of my van halen collection since EVH passed. here's a great live set i found:
  11. i'm betting it's a seymour duncan distortion, since that's the brand he had on the sticker strat for the middle and neck. SD distortion hums were popular if you were playing hard rock, metal, and punk; that's what i dropped into my yamaha red rocker back in '99. it's like the SD version of the X2N.
  12. sure, it's on both the KROQ almost acoustic xmas recordings (97 with scott and 98 with travis).
  13. i remember hearing this from someone. i would think celebs ask for clips to be taken down if they want.
  14. yea the underwater stuff is from the first, abandoned "josie" video. i'm only in the second one, at the high school, so i was spared getting wet! there is a super short clip of it on vimeo. the uncut "M+M's" is on youtube.
  15. that's an interesting question. on the one hand, i'm a total deep cut snob. i never want to hear the singles played live. so voyeur 100%. it's a sentimental track too, because they introduced it to the set before dude ranch came out. it was on the setlist all summer 97. then they dropped it from the set (though it came back on the "mark tom and travis show" tour. however "M+M's" is soooooo iconic for me. a cornerstone of my high school years. buying cheshire cat at the show and then playing the CD in the car on the drive home, the one-two punch for falling in love with blink was "carouse
  16. surely. i had heard "M+M's" live some two dozen times by the time i first heard "voyeur." the mark, tom, and travis show... what's that? (trolling)
  17. yea i saw it before i even joined the boards. one of those lists of fails, pictures taken from reddit, like people painting their own cars and fucking them up, or adding on to their own houses poorly.
  18. even i know that one. it's internet / meme famous well beyond blink. i think it was featured on a "fails" subreddit is why.
  19. when you're right, you're right, dog. and i OWN that fucking CD single for chrissakes. although there's no way "M+Ms" is more obscure than "voyeur." it was the album's single! promo CD to radio, video to MTV (though rejected), the works...
  20. yea, you got mendella'ed. according to discogs, the b-side appears to be "don't me that it's over" and sometimes also "mother's day." i find it difficult to believe that any dude ranch track would be attached to a travis-era release. the only time they've done this (repeatedly) is in repackaging "i won't be home for xmas."
  21. hang on, let me get my copy of living in clip to spin.
  22. awesome to hear chris on record. the poway cinemas he worked at is where i went to the movies with mark and tom. he's right, mark went to the movies there constantly. good interview, but hearing and watching the twelve year old talking to chris giggling the whole time was annoying AF. that kid is terrible.
  23. those are fun. two things: a.) they are using one of my tom pictures on the billabong page. b.) their website is a piece of shit. there is a facebook messenger chat bot anchored to the lower right which won't go away no matter how many times you close it. and it blocks part of the page, even when you scroll.
