What if Tom just made new songs but Matt preformed them?  I could honestly see this happening knowing blink.

Yeah but writing/recording is the part Tom never wanted to do. He was always down to tour because he got paid.

What people think Boxcar Racer would be like           What it would actually be like  

Here's an actual conversation between Mark and Tom from when things were going bad:

Most people have flaws. But in this case he has flaws and no talent in Blink. He is a glorified Dave Kennedy or worse, that new bass player in AVA that none of the AVAbots want to stand by in the photo op.

Yeah, he showed up on the new album, but its starting to feel more like "Hey Matt, here is this part we wrote for you, sing it and we will do our autotuned/production magic"

no joke, matt rubano is probably the most talented musician out of anyone who has been in blink or ava...he is legit.

Alpha males (an amended definition from wikipedia alpha testing) - 

"Alpha males are men that are not thoroughly tested by common sense before released to the world. Alpha males usually contains serious errors; therefore they can be unstable and could cause unintended hilarity or girlfriend loss. Alpha men may not contain all of the features that are expected for the final relationship."

Btw gonna go out on a limb here and say Mark will collab with Tom on a Simple Creatures song eventually. Makes more sense artistically and will be an easier  "test" to see how a working relationship may go. (Also gains hype for SC, and pays Tom back for the Mark feature on BCR)

Would be cool. Tom really needs to find a new voice for future endeavors. Would probably help to get him on something poppy that he isn't in control over. Someone telling him what to sing and how to sing it would do him wonders.

Alphas hide behind their manager and change their phone numbers to avoid conflict? Pretty alpha of Mark to kick Tom out IMO...

This would actually be an interesting poll, what took more balls:

-Mark kicking Tom out
-Tom walking away

Nah, an alpha stays centered and avoids drama. After Mark started shit at rehearsal in 2005; Tom left the rehearsal because he didn't need to get petty. He had ever right to just have the manager end it. An alpha lives in a drama free zone. Didn't need to sink to Mark's beta level.

Wrong. What you run from haunts you. What you face disappears. Being aware of how you show up as a human is a alpha male quality. Not seeking self improvement and accepting things as they are is beta.

Nope. Nothing I've said is trolling or incorrect. Everything I've said is factually based. Its kind of sad that people see basic facts as trolling.

You could've just said "yes"

Except I am not.

Fact Check: Mark can't write his own songs to save his life. He has no self confidence in his songs or himself, and allows fans to bring him down and defeat him.

Tom actually does write his own songs, thinks everything he does is amazing, and doesn't give a single fuck what other people want him to do with his life or what they think he should be doing. Tom is not defeated by anything.

Mark is a beta, Tom is an alpha. Prove me wrong. Otherwise, the only troll here is YOU.

There's nothing to 'prove' because the concept of alpha/beta is all based on your opinion of a recent social construct, it has absolutely no meaning on anything significant. There's no 'facts' here, just you clearly trolling for fun.
