that's the casbah, a classic 21-up alt rock club in san diego. i've seen everyone from the dismemberment plan to unwritten law there.

edit: i just watched the vid. terrible performance. is this a nostalgic clip for some of you folks, as @boxelder mentions?

Yeah, I got into the band in 2005-2006 and I believe this and Big Day Out were my first encounter with the stage banter and I thought they were hilarious and cool. I was 14 in 2006 and 14 years later I no longer think they were the greatest comedians or coolest people but it's fun to watch this with nostalgia glasses.

Around the same time in  2006 I also found this video and it made me question if it was the same guy in both clips:

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

Hmm is this the most dead period of this site in years or does it just seem like it? Nothing going on in Blink-land (understandably) but in past down periods we at least had Oliver here to stir up some controversies. Anybody know what he's up to lately?

That clip has always been so weird to me.. it sounds like shit but still I connect deeply with it emotionally

I think it's a more well known bootleg than others since it's during the Enema era and the entire show is on video, it's always been easy to download or view over the years. 

Do you prefer the shorter setlists of the older shows or is it just the newer songs you don't like? I personally think Mark and Tom sometimes get too tired and sloppy with shows over an hour.

it's tough to say. i think this particular show at the kasbah is an objectively bad performance, though it is a nice novelty to have a record of. if i had a magic wand, i'd wish for a blink that was more like bad religion live. about an hour and a half, diverse set offerings, many deep cuts, constantly inventing themselves.

though i grew up with them and i love them, it's a fair statement that blink are lazy and unimaginative live. they were like that in 1999, they were like that in 2004, they were like that in 2010, they were like that in 2016, and they are like that now.

I pop in as much as I can but even I'm thinking of checking out the other forums on the site. It's just hard to care about blink these days. There's so many other amazing bands that need our support. And, yknow, the pandemic. It's put a lot of shit into perspective and worrying about a bunch of rich, feuding 50-year olds in a 90's band seems petty these days.

I enjoyed Nine for what it is but i'm definitely not even remotely excited for the next blink record or EP or quarantine song or guest vocal or whatever the hell Mark and Travis are doing with the band these days. Will I check it out? Sure. But blink truly wowing me across an entire record is long over.

I don't even think Tom coming back would get me pumped like it did back in 2009 because it'll be the original reunion 2.0, only now Tom will have a low-budget movie to sell rather than modlife.

I don’t know if this has been discussed yet, but Mark recently confirmed that blink asked Green Day to do a Pop Disaster 2, and Green Day declined. Not surprised at all that GD didn’t want to do this with the current lineup. Funny that blink thought to even ask, IMO.

Green Day wouldn't want to do it even if it was the old line up. They hated Blink and the last Pop Disaster tour.

Yea, I know. But especially given how much blink fell off, they don't even seem like blink...it makes sense. Now to play devil's advocate, GD did agree to do that tour with Fall Out Boy before Covid happened, which is strange. FOB is and has always been way more lame than blink, and they basically turned into an electronic band..but yet GD likes them? Seems weird.

Green Day fell off as hard if not harder than blink. Green Day most likely wanted to be top dogs on this new tour so they picked bands that allowed them to be that. With blink it would’ve been co-headline again.

Yeah I posted about it a while back because he talked about it on his Discord but it didn't have a lengthly discussion.

Oh please, you’re letting your love of blink blind you. Green Day has been bigger than blink for all years except 1999-2003. No way in hell it would be co-headline.

Dude for all of the shit California and Nine get, you can't tell me Green Day is even in the same realm anymore with the absolute piles of garbage they've put out since American Idiot.

Based on commercial sales, yes I sure can. When do you see blink on commercials or hear them on the radio? I know I’ve seen Green Day promoted a hell of a lot more. I love blink a billion times more than I care for Green Day, but some of you are allowing that love for blink to skew your opinions

After Green Day released the trilogy of flops they fell off hard and nothing they’ve released since then has brought them back.

this is also true. however, a band's heights are never erased by their lows. peak green day was way bigger than peak blink. and green day's lowest of lows are not nearly as terrible as NINE.

River Cuomo is putting all of his demos from every weezer album in Dropbox folders and selling them on his site for 9 bucks each. The first one for everything will be alright in the end (considered the holy grail for weezer fans because of how many known unreleased songs there are) has over 500 files just for that album alone. Around 30-50 unreleased songs that are essentially complete songs that are good quality just not really mixed / maybe finally tracked. Many songs have 20+ versions and you can see how the song progressed through writing. People have wanted to hear these songs for over five years and he just randomly dropped them in a drop box folder over the weekend with no warning. He’s doing every album now and has his own discord like website he interacts with fans on he wrote himself. 
 

I wish blink would do something like this or even had unreleased songs worth throwing out there...

Peak green day was bigger then blink sure but that doesn’t mean they still are. Green day released a new album earlier this year and it was such a non event I barely saw any articles promoting or talking about it on the music news sites I follow.

And opinions are like assholes Davey. We’ve all got them. Nothing green day has released since 21CB has come close to Nine IMO.

I’m not talking about what music you think is better. I saw ads for Green Day on tv, never saw anything for NINE. Your opinion on the music is not what is up for debate

That wasn’t even my response to you lol. I was responding to Davey stating his opinion with my own whilst saying that everybody has opinions meaning they have no relevance in this discussion lol.  You’re arguing with me agreeing with you lol.

Green Day’s label paying for ad space doesn’t mean they are a bigger band or more relevant. If anything it would mean the opposite. Can’t sell on its own.
