  1. Nine is better than California in just about every way. Huge step up, and I hope they continue to build on the dark but catchy thing, and keep giving Matt more songwriting freedom.
  2. California has like... mayyyyybe 6 great songs, and that's even including the deluxe songs too. I hate how "Kings of the Weekend" is pretty much the only song that has a little bit of an instrumental part in the middle of the song. Every other song has vocals going 98% of the time, with Woahs and Ohs filling in the empty space, and it just makes every song feel the same. "California" and "Bottom of the Ocean" are in my bottom 10 Blink songs ever. The only songs I ever go back to are Bored To Death, She's Out Of Her Mind, The Only Thing That Matters, Rabbit Hole, and San Diego. And even out of those songs, I think the only real standout is Bored To Death.
  3. one of my least favorite Blink songs, haha
  4. realistic: - mark is still on the mend, so nothing really new will be released this year. - new music (maybe just an EP) and a summer tour in 2023. - maybe tom plays a handful of shows for a small run of west coast dates, or just a couple california shows (LA/SD) what i'd like to see happen: - mark gets the ok from scott and tom to release a bunch of the old blink demos he's discovered. maybe some deluxe versions of a couple of their older albums. - i'd like to see a proper nine tour happen in 2023 before they completely move on to the next era of the band. - maybe a new one-off EP with tom, but he doesn't join the band full time again. - tom and travis do a BCR show and release that new song they've hinted at for an anniversary release of the album.
  5. In October 2020, I was working from home (due to the pandemic) and I woke up one day thinking "it would be cool to write an entire EP, record it, and release it all in a single day..." So during work, I was writing songs, and then after work I recorded the songs and put them up on Bandcamp. And I haven't stopped... I'm currently working on my 7th EP. Here's some jams! Hope some people here dig it.
  6. here's some new-ish lofi pop punk stuff.
  7. Yeah, those were all released while Scott was in the band.
  8. If Mark refuses to release these relics unless he gets Scott's permission, I can't imagine they'll ever be officially released, honestly. They haven't talked to Scott since like 1998, supposedly, right? And their breakup wasn't on good terms, so why would Scott even give them the time of day at this point? And is Mark even willing to reach out to Scott personally? I just don't see them talking...
  9. I just found the official date and information regarding this show! September 20, 1995 at DV8 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Vandals, Strung Out, Blink, and Blue Tip. https://www.deseret.com/1995/9/15/19193056/punk-sounds-to-rock-s-l-next-week The Vandals and Blink also played together the night before (9-19-1995) at the Mercury Cafe in Denver, CO. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/the-vandals/1995/mercury-cafe-denver-co-139f29e9.html
  10. Random that “the party song” is also on that one tape since the others are obviously the TOYPAJ joke songs. I want to hear all of these demo tapes/alternate mixes more than I want Tom back in Blink haha…
  11. Still so disappointed this demo tape hasn't seen the light of day yet... Siiiiigh
  12. Yeah, that makes sense, although I'm very envious of you. Haha.
  13. I think you might be confusing two separate specials. You're describing The Road Home and their MTV Diary episode. Pretty sure they have always been separate series altogether, and both episodes are on YouTube in full.
  14. "Apple Shampoo" is an amazing song, but definitely an odd choice for a single. The song doesn't have any repeated choruses which probably wouldn't bode well with radio and stuff back in the day.
  15. My first time hearing The Ataris was on Napster because it was labeled as being "Man Overboard" but really it was the song "1-15-96." And also, my first time hearing Me First and the Gimme Gimmes was because it was labeled as "Seasons in the Sun" by Blink 182. I remember getting into many forum arguments with people because I kept telling them it wasn't Blink, and they didn't believe me, haha. The good old days when you couldn't just Google a song's lyrics or whatever to find out more about a song haha.
  16. That's what I was assuming as well. Always loved the file mislabeling on Napster back in the day, haha. But yeah, I'd love to know if it actually exists. There's download links that I've found through Google searches, but of course, they're all expired.
  17. Today, I discovered a bunch of old forums/Blink fan sites mentioning a demo that Blink and Scott Russo of Unwritten Law recorded together back in 1993 or something. Is that legit? If so, is it just a song called "Smelly Shoes" or is it like an EP or something? And is it available to listen to anywhere? I'm very intrigued now... If it isn't real, let me know, and I will throw this thread into a fire.
  18. Bumping this old thread of mine! Let me know if you have found any other relevant Blink locations since my original post!
  19. Here's a ticket stub and newspaper article that I saved after seeing the band for the first time at the Salt Lake City date of the Mark, Tom, and Travis Show Tour. Hopefully you can zoom in and read the article okay, haha. At least enjoy the rare live photo!
  20. Here are some ticket stubs I dug up today. Feel free to add them to the timeline website, if you don't already have ticket stub pictures from these shows. Mark, Tom, and Travis Show Tour (SLC 2000) Pop Disaster Tour (SLC 2002) Untitled Tour (SLC 2004) Box Car Racer Tour (SLC 2002)
  21. Met +44 at an in-store meet and greet in Salt Lake City on June 25, 2007 before their show. They signed the back of a FS&S sticker for me.
  22. Amazing stuff right here! Thanks for your work on getting these HQ rips, ha gang! Davey, don’t you have a HQ rip of Flyswatter? I think I remember you mentioning it awhile ago. I could be wrong. Would you/whoever has it ever share it with this community?
  23. “The first time” is still in my bottom favorites of Nine.
  24. That's awesome man! Thanks for answering my dorky questions, haha.
