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 pretty much just ignore it. i have a fondness for some of the songs on it, namely cynical (good tune) and SOOHM (so catchy and by-the-numbers blink i can't deny it). but for the most part, it feels distinctly different and regrettable, almost like a different band

It is a different band. I still let Sober and Last Train Home play out when it comes on a playlist, admittingly at the gym or something...  But I look at it as a couple bonus songs by Mark...just like that Dogs Go To Heaven song.  Just fun bonus tracks with no emotional attachment to it.  The rest kind of dried out, even Cynical & Hey I'm Sorry, my two personal favorites when it came out.

Really?  There's a halo in the distance?  Misery loves company?  Generic. Barf. 

Who gives a fuck about lyrics? Neither of them have written good lyrics since 2005. All I care about is melody and progression.

Disney is a magical place for families. Fun relaxed time without punk college kids and drunkards. Which one does Mark go to? He seems like the type of guy to waste the time flying from London to California even though theres Disney locations in Europe and Disney World in Florida

Idk bro but Travis' family doesn't go with him so chill.

I gotta agree with Jan, Brendan. Misery is just awful. 

I still listen to 6/8 and Last Train Home on a rare occasion. I don't even listen to the ones I liked from original California, few that they were. I can't even spin San Diego now, and that was my favourite of the bunch.

I listen to some California songs now and then. Bored to Death is still a great song for me. Los Angeles is still great for me too, never understood the hate of this song but I've loved it since day one.

I liked Bottom of the Ocean since day one too but that has grown into one of my favourite blink songs since the reunion. Long Lost Feeling I still listen to regularly. 6/8 is still a great listen.

All in all, these are the songs I'll listen to quite a bit

Bored to Death
Los Angeles
6/8
Bottom of the Ocean
Long Lost Feeling


Then these are the ones I'll still listen to, just nowhere near as much (still think these are great songs though)

Last Train Home
Misery
Home Is Such a Lonely Place
San Diego

One song I just thought was boring when I first listened to it, but now has grown on me, The Only Thing That Matters. As for the two others that I like Left Alone & Hey I'm Sorry, I just hate the choruses and the woahs of these songs. The verses are fucking great for both IMO. Good Old Days is ok, it's not as catchy as it should be IMO. It's trying to be a pop song the way ATSM, The Rock Show do and hell even First Date but it's nowhere near as memorable as those tracks.

The other songs are trash IMO. That includes Cynical, never understood the hype of that song on these boards either. The only other song that could've been great is KOTW but the lyrics let that down way too much for me.

I haven't listened to a single blink-182 song from California or Deluxe since about 6 weeks after the Deluxe release.

I was actually quite impressed with some of the Deluxe version when it first came out but it had no replay value for me as time went on.

Misery is arguably the best song they've released since the reunion. Definitely top 3.

Not sure if it's top 3 for me, but I do love Misery for sure. Misery, 6/8, Hey I'm Sorry, and BTD Acoustic are top tier on Deluxe for me. BTD Acoustic is a sleeper, I always sorta forget about it and then just love Skiba's voice on it every time. It is so nice hearing him sing and not do the yelling thing.

I gave California a spin at the gym a few weeks ago and was loving it. I had even forgot about Rabbit Hole and was enjoying that.

I don't listen to it any more or less than I do other Blink stuff.

 

Side Notes:

Mark's in the studio with Amy Shark, who Tom is a huge fan of and was supposedly planning on working with. 

Mark/Skye were at a show last night where Ilan was playing with Paul McCartney and Matt Bellamy. Small world.

Travis liked a comment where someone wrote "I post Tom Delonge memes all day". Weird.

Honestly, I think the beef between Mark and Tom has cooled off.  Mark tagged Tom in the Twitter post for  the Untitled  record anniversary last November. Travis has been hanging with Tom. And  really the most press blink has gotten since Cali was because of Tom and his alien hunt.

Not to say they are anywhere close to hanging or, you know, making music. That may never happen again. But I think that they might say hey to each other if Mark and Tom ever accidentally ran into each other on the street (or Disneyland) which is a far cry from where they were 2-3 years ago.

Las time I listened something out off California was Bored to Death and 6/8. That was like... 3 or 4 months ago.

 

Edit: oh, I almost forget to say it. I absolutely love the line "In betwen whispers and screams you permeate my soul". I think that only line is brilliant. I don't know why but to me it really fits in the description of a toxic relationship, the type in which you're kinda trapped through the ups and obscure downs being unable to leave and step outside of that mountain of shit. Sweet nothing whispers on one side, and screams on the other, whle that person is just drilling you. Brutal.

misery was so bad to me. sounds like anything any band trying to sound like blink c. 2006 would've put out. i remember just sighing when i heard it. cali deluxe is the all-time worst thing mark or travis (or matt) have ever been involved with. a forgettable mess and wildly generic. 6/8 showed promise, i suppose, but that was it. and even that sounded like a joke
