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

The only way Tom should be allowed back in the band is if he climbs that same street light to impress Mark this time.   *broken ankles are optional.

I distinctly remember Tom making it seem like she didn't know who he was before they started dating.

Are we talking about the IG where he said “when you go on tour and she only knows you as a guy that “used” to play music”? (I just checked to make sure I remembered the wording) Or something else? 
Because that says nothing about whether she knew him or knew of him prior to the relationship, bc it’s in present tense. So it’s about what she thinks/thought while already IN the relationship. He’s saying “in her mind, music is something I used to do”, as in, it’s not his main passion or priority anymore.

Oh, that's probably what I'm thinking of! I'm probably just misremembering, that's not so bad actually haha.

Tom seems super happy and is working on new music, that's all that matters.

I agree, seems like he's in a much healthier state. hopefully it results in better music too

The funniest thing about that whole discussion was that I was supposed to know who this Chris Cote fella is.

If you didn't know who Chris Cote was, that means you mustn't have watched Riding in Vans with Boys dozens of times and that means you're a fake fan. I don't make the rules.

I loved it as a teenager, but I haven't seen it since then. I wonder what I'd think of it now.

Mark’s the one who writes masterpieces when he’s depressed,  not Tom. We need happy Tom lol

So sad but true, I never even realized the extent of this truth either.  They truly need eachother once again!

 

Tom when he's depressed writes loopy space shit that goes no where, or yodels, Tom when he's happy writes some of Blink's best hits.

Mark when he's depressed writes masterful deep lyrics and vibes like on +44 and some of blinks best hits like Adam's song, when he's too happy he writes overly plush and complacent stuff like Sober or California and gives a "fuck off" vibe.

 

Sometimes they meet and the middle and you get a Feeling This, or a funny song like WMAA that's slightly happy with Tom's guitar tones, but riddled in some misery with Mark's self depreciating lyrics.

Toms best work was written when he was high as a kite on pain meds and severely depressed (Boxcar) not really sure where this idea that he writes best happy is coming from. 

Tom happy is AVA. Its writing about love and 'landscapes' instead of like, actual real things.

Tom made a huge mistake leaving Jen. She's as beautiful as ever and runs an honest business that doesn't involve scamming people. I've also heard she's a certified freak!

What's the point of quitting being a musician which makes millions, to waste all the free time you gained and fill it with hanging out with old men conspiracy theorists, and lose money on top of it all. No sane woman would put up with that. If you disagree with me you are sexist!

You’re a weird mother fucker. Do you have nothing better to do than sit around and ponder why Tom does this or that and what his ex wife does or what woman he’s with now ffs sake man get some real life hobbies. Buy a fishing pole or something.

I disagree, that was obviously an awesome round of music from Tom but short lived as fuck and has been a down slope ever since.

When Tom was 'seemingly' happy (90s-pre Boxcar) he seemed much more sustainable and focused as a musician.
