It’s funny because now I think of Enema and TOYPAJ as being extremely similar albums. I think of them as a pair.

Yea I think of them as pretty much a pair too, makes sense

Maybe. I think Rick is kind of bullshitting them by saying it was "too dark". really, I think he just wanted them follow up the lightning in the bottle that was Enema of the State and to be as successful and safe as possible. So while that led to them constructing some very solid pop hits (Rock Show, First Date), it made them (Tom more so) feel creatively stifled and led to BCR and Untitled and eventually break up. Not entirely his fault, but it's interesting to think back on if TOYPAJ was more of a slump, would untitled have been a thing at all? It would certainly change the narrative. 

Yeah that's true, he's largely the reason for First Date. 

I think the final note of the podcast was true though. 'it was all bound to happen'

Maybe not in the same exact order, but blink got largely famous because of Rick pushing them, constantly putting themselves out there, and then getting eventually noticed by Finn.. Rick kept making them tour their butts off, Tom hated touring and fame sort of got to him the most.

Finn "noticed" blink? Wouldn't they have hired him?

Would he have taken them on if they didn't get decently big in the area?

You mean, would he have taken a job he was paid to do? Yes.

I'm clearly possibly confused here, I thought Finn had just done Green Days album and it some sort of notoriety was needed to get on his backlog or higher cost at the least. Either way, I'm bowing out here.

He probably had a higher price tag, sure but money talks and the label pays. Maybe he liked Blink, maybe he’d never heard of them at the time, I don’t know but it’s like any other job.

Really cool Interview with Rick Devoe about blink.

Rick is an awesome dude. I could see him being a motivational speaker, top sales agent, a CEO type, or anything that he wanted to do. But he was driven by his purpose, which was surfing. I love stories of how people follow their purpose and it ends up giving them an amazing life while bringing others up with them. Stoked for Ryan to have him on the podcast.

Would he be a good mortgage broker?

Can we add this to the reactions as well? I’m scared to hit the cheese burger I don’t even know what it means

Kinda like the crab. It had a visual luster and I used it probably 50 times before I figured out it had a negative connotation.

I honestly don’t understand the crab either. Like, I get what we use it for here, but I don’t know why it’s a crab lol
