Finally got this painted up, I think it turned out pretty nice!  

holy fuck I'm shaking.  Producer calls me at 12:15 says he'll be calling back in about an hour.   Called at 1255 and it was Mark pretending to be the producer, I mentioned  how blink-182online wa

I’ve been dabbling in wood carving the last few months. This ones not done, but thought I would share

I think you're wrong but that just my opinion and you're basing yours off just a few club shows which i think is a stupid thing to do but again it's just an opinion.

 

Also i don't ever see Blink being a support act for anyone, i truly think your days as a Blink fan are numbered and you're just over them at this point in your life and you just want to see them fail.

 

Personally i would have no problem with Blink just doing clubs to that size it would make shows more fun to be there with a bunch of diehards.

 

Again i think they can do an arena tour again and i'm sure they will especially if they ever release another album again. But again it's all a matter of opinion which in the end of the day doesn't mean jack shit to anyone.

 

 

But its kind of economics 101.

 

If you own a 7 Eleven and you sell 30 hot dogs in a day. Would you go ahead and buy 500 hot dogs to sell per day?

 

Its common sense. Yes, if Blink had a hit album come out that would be different. But  do you see that happening?

 

But that wasn't the argument anyway. The argument was that Blink should continue to play stale setlists because most fans are casual. I contested that with the pretty solid idea that the casual fan is gone and backed that up with specific data.

The opinion is based off the fact that Blink took a few days to sell out venues that held 2500 people on their last trek in the US.

 

There is no way in hell they could sell standard areans that hold 18K. Not a chance. It would have to be a festival or they'd have to support a more popular band.

Was that the self titled tour?

To be fair loliver has a point - even in Vancouver which is a generally pretty big music market to any degree, they couldn't sell tickets to the MCR/blink show. They ended up making Groupon packages the day before the show for 20 bucks, and even then I'd say there probably was about 5000 people max there.

I thought we all agreed this band was rubbish and we would stop talking about them. What is wrong with all y'all?

You don't need to say "all y'all". Y'all already stands for "you all". It's like saying "wee little".

You're welcome.

love,

Texas

Where are you from Houston or Austin? The south says all y'all all the fucking time. So fuck off with that you stupid silly shit dolphin. 

San Antonio. Austin doesn't count as a Southern city and Houston only speaks in ebonics. We are the authority. Watch your mouth, sir before I smite thee with Southern Pride!
