This is where his lyrics just become subjective; I enjoy this line as well, as it's imagery that doesn't need to be clear in order to be effective, at least in my opinion.

Yeah I don't mind that line. A ferris wheel full of blue green eyes has some nice imagery for me. I see a very specific scene that I pictured in my head the first time I heard it.

I see the ferris wheel buckets full of disembodied eyes. I can understand your interpretation but its a lot of work for it.

I mean it's the immediate image that came to my mind the first time I heard it. So it certainly doesn't feel like a lot of work at all.

Has anyone else noticed a recent rise in popularity of blink-182 within the zeitgeist? I mean it's mostly centered around their most pop-punk 1999-2001 sound, but I see and hear random blink things seemingly everywhere these days. 

My theory is it's a combination of a rise in popularity of the pop-punk genre as a whole again, Travis dating and now engaged to a Kardadhian, Travis dipping his fingers in music all over the place anymore with other popular musicians, Mark revealing and beating stage 4 cancer, and maybe even a little bit of Tom's general alien weirdness gaining more attention (like the other day a comedy podcast I enjoy randomly mentioned Tom DeLonge in regards to aliens and no further explanation was needed for the other guests on the show).  It's almost the perfect storm of attention for all this stuff related to the band, that blink is at the center of it, so everyone just kinda naturally gravitating to thinking more about the band these days.  At least that's my theory.

Haha I've always considered blink as the Beatles & Beach Boys of pop punk music. I compare other bands to classic bands too, like Green Day to me are the Who of pop punk music. Offspring are the Iron Maiden of pop punk and I compare MCR with Queen. Not really thought of comparing other pop punk bands with the classic rock bands though

Mark looks fresh as FUCK. Certified DILF.

He looks great! It's wild that cancer made his hair white (gray?) but he's rocking it, and in my humble opinion, fucked up reasoning aside, short hair suits him much more than the goofy Jimmy Neutron/fauxhawk thing he had for most of the past decade. But yeah, goofy hairstyle opinions are way beside the point, I'm just so happy for him that he's healthy and back out in the world.
