The blink 182 general discussion topic

Recommended Posts

I don't think it would scare away new posters. At the end of the day, as soon as they join, they're gonna see negativity about California and Feldman on other threads as well.

This is the consensus for sure.

I was wrong to propose a thread for California critiquing.

I actually thought the safe space thread was a good idea. Not sure what happened there.

Yeah! It was actually nice to see peoples positive thoughts about the two albums. We should start a new safe space

Parking Lot is still my car jam. I can't help myself to scream CHICAGO along with Matt. Just can't


Edit: The California Safe Space. Great name for a thread

It ended up being the same complaints as in every other thread, just delivered in a tad less dramatic/angry fashion. I could start up a California Safe Space but unless it's heavily moderated it will be kind of pointless. And if I heavily moderate it, it will be "censoring" and i'll get scolded

As a guitarist myself, they aren't the same, but it's the same concept each time. Have a lower note that moves around while picking the same two upper notes (if that makes sense) Tom did it a lot as well (WMAA). But at least Tom was clever with it and didn't use it with tons of songs.

Got to wonder if Matt is the one writing those riffs, or is it Feldman........

Since his stuff in AK is much different.....we might assume the worst.

It's not so much the concept of playing a different root note and playing constant upper notes. That's classic blink. It's more the fact that Matt doesn't play with the formula. When Matt does it, he is playing the bottom note twice, and then the top note once, almost every time. Tom at least played around with the order. What's My Age Again and Dammit use the same idea but they're totally different sounding riffs. Matt** took Tom's riff from Story of a Lonely Guy and used it on almost every song.

 

**probably Feldmann

Or the bassline from the intro of Mutt

@Nosferatu

Ghent made thread about blink going back into studio as it was mentioned by Travis

that thread was tied to the blink-182online twitter account, had lots of views, got about ten pages long

thread was mostly on-topic but wasn't too kind to California, lots of discussion about negativity, Feldmann, Alkaline Trio, etc and how the fans view that record and the band's current shape

Ghent deletes thread because he thinks it's toxic and would scare away potential posters

 

am I missing anything?

When did the board get a twitter?

This page runs google ads.  Is this all a ploy to snag more ad revenue?  Explains all the mods going rogue lately.  Guess Ghent's idol was Tom all along.  When can we buy some b182online merch?

Tom might not be in Blink anymore, but he lives on through these mods.

And royalties.

Haha I wish the boards made money. Would make me feel better about all the effort put in only to get heckled for it.

@Dean can probably confirm but I always assumed the ads were to cover the hosting and domain costs.

Correct, and the ad revenue doesn't even cover all the costs.

@horchata actually made a version of this that you can buy. Sadly, the link is now down. I actually own this shirt. I'll look for pictures.
