Dude is in his prime. Get Tom back in the band and do blink stat

Is he smoking weed again? I saw he posted some pics in a Mickey Mouse hat, and my Eskimo Brother commented “Mickey mouse after burning those backwoods” or something like that. To which Travis replied with a smoke/cloud emoji. I thought he couldn’t smoke anymore because of some throat cancer threat ?

I mean, don't they still have Matt in the band or is he still AWOL? Sorry everyone, been busy moving. I'm out of the blink loop.

He’s still in the band but kinda MIA, wasn’t part of their Quarantine song but I think he’s helping record the new album?

Either way, Tom should join up. Skiba can stay if he wants, they would sound way better live with two guitarists and another singer. Skiba also brings a unique sound that has worked well in places. Mix it with Tom and see where it goes.

AVA is a waste of time.

The only way Tom would come back is for money and he'd do little to no actual work, it wouldn't be good. 

Id rather a handful of good Tom songs with AVA than nothing at all.

As much as I'd love Tom returning to blink again, we'd be waiting years and years for blink to even release a song with him back in the band.

AVA did nothing at all until the past year when they've been recording an album. You'd think with the pandemic situation, he'd have more time to record music but the album has been in the making since even before that.

We'd be waiting 7-8 years for the next blink album IMO. He'd still have AVA existing whilst being a member of blink. He'd still be doing all the To the Stars stuff. He'll still be working on movies, comics, animations, books or whatever.

It'll probably be better than rushed songs like the ones from California & Nine. But a 7-8 year gap in between albums would only ever work if he's actually gonna be in the studio writing songs alongside Mark & Travis.

He'd just end up sending ideas through email again like he did during the recording of Neighborhoods and only ever turn up to the studio like once every 4-5 months or something. Even if he did turn up to the studio consistently (like he did during the recording of Dogs Eating Dogs), he'd probably rush the songwriting and have nearly all the songs written before even turning up to the studio. He'd never commit to working on just new blink music for 5-6 months straight.

If he could do that, then I'd never be bothered about the huge year gaps in between each album. His handling of time management nowadays is even worse than it was during Neighborhoods IMO. I just don't ever see him working on blink music for 5-6 months straight every 7-8 years though. Mark will just be impatient unless he focused more on Simple Creatures or brought back +44.

I could maybe see Tom returning in that capacity for one last blink album, but he'll probably be 60-70 years old at that point.

Man is neighborhoods aging into a fucking masterpiece for anyone else around here? I had a really long drive yesterday and spun it start to finish and holy FUCK compared to anything blink or ava have done post first hiatus  it really feels like blinks true swan song and the level of quality feels super high. I know they supposedly half assed it yada yada yada but it is much for enjoyable to listen to than restless souls ffs. Can I get an amen?!

I also think it has aged very well but I’ve loved it from the start sooo
