The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

Recommended Posts

Tom just deleted his latest post on instagram. It was an image with some shirt or whatever. The thing is that it said: Encinitas, CA. I guess he deleted it due to de amount of blink related comments out there. What I don't know is if he was responding to them. Anyway, what a weird way to deal with the whole situation. He's obviously freaking out.

I am sure it was removed due to Blink comments. When he posts now all the facebook replies are from Tombots. Either they are filtered or they just removed all the people who wrote nasty stuff. I am not sure. But it use to be like 80% negative, so they obviously did something.

This might be the full crash and burn moment. Everything now is directed at Blink, he can't even post stuff without hearing about it. He's got this new book and no one cares and he sees Blink doing a major tour, new album and all of that and its big news. Its got to be difficult. No one could really handle that unscathed, not even someone as narcissistic as Tom.

Interesting... I do like that they're still talking, at least. I don't think that Tom is in the future of this band, but given how great of friends they once were, I will always hope for them to be able to be friends somewhere down the line.

Hi everybody-

I understand all the craziness out there in Internet-land, it is an odd time for fans of the Blink-182 legacy, I know- It's odd for me, too.

Well, I met with Mark yesterday, and Travis the week before.... I actually talk to Travis almost every day, now.

...

The answer is this:

We DO have a future together if we want it, but for now we are busy doing separate things. I am directing a movie this summer, releasing a couple more albums of music and digging deeper into my relationships with the US Government on the Sekret Machines Project.

I know people are comparing the Angels and Airwaves Chasing Shadows EP to the new Blink-182 music, and that is a failed task. For one, I think having a song-writer that came in on the Blink album (Feldy- 5 Seconds of Summer, Good Charlotte) was something they felt was necessary, and that in itself may be an indicator of some of our current artistic differences that are difficult to overcome. At the time, I was recording the song NEW WORLD (on the DEMOS album titled after my own name) and that was my personal opinion of where we could possibly take Blink for the next album. But we are at different places in our minds, careers and goals, I get it.

But that said, I obviously want them to make the music they wish. I have always been thankful for them in my life, but I am a forward thinking artist, and sometimes that leads me down a different path- That is why I have done other projects like: Box Car Racer, Angels and Airwaves- LOVE 1 & 2, AND The Dream Walker etc...

I look forward to my upcoming Feature Film, the Historical-Fiction Sekret Machines Project, the Poet Anderson adventure, the ridiculous stories of Strange Times, and a hell of a lot more...

....Maybe even a bit of Blink-182 if we can build back that "special something" that was once there.
