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 thought Travis's work all the way up until Neighborhoods was awesome but at that point he started over-playing like crazy and it's not even interesting to listen to, despite it being impressive.

and yeah his personality is so dry. people rag on tom for his appearance on joe rogan's podcast but travis's episode was actually worse imo. he couldn't get him to have a conversation about anything. just one word responses and blank stares.

True, but on Neighborhoods/DED it kind of was needed, but yeah that point on I've had no interest in his over playing

I think its weird to see Travis playing with all these "trap-pop-punk" kids but it must be so fun for him. Its always nice to "feel younger."
Maybe the tattoo was some stupid bet...  "You can f* me in the A$$ if you....."
hahah jeez

i feel the opposite. after reading his book i liked him as a person. but i don't fancy him as a drummer.

This is pretty spot on. I like Travis the most out of all the members in Blink in terms of both his talent and personality (he at least seems like a pretty honest and humble guy that has never been an issue for the band except for allegedly wanting money from that musical festival in Australia that he never attended). I've read his book and watched/read pretty much all of his interviews and your post is right on the nose. The fact that you got crabbed by @Ghent is just another example of him conflating valid criticism with hatred/negativity of the band - we saw this all the time right after California was released. Dude needs to learn how to think critically. 

There's really nothing wrong with your take on Travis. He's one of the best drummers in the world/of all time IMO and is an incredibly successful musician, producer, and runs multiple successful businesses. He doesn't need to be Socrates and provide insight, he brings so much else to the table.

Those are 2 of my buddies! Allan recreates Mark's bass guitars by hand and has been on the pod to discuss the process, it absolutely blows my mind that starts out as a chunk of wood from Home Depot. That bass is so rad!

I hadn't seen these! Found a +44 one. Always happy to see anything +44

 

What a great fucking record that is. I’d rather Mark kept on making +44 music than Blink tbh

These have probably been posted but whatever

This is the ultimate blink song for me

I think Mutt might be my favorite Tom song on Enema.
