Sorry stupid question but does «your guess is as good as mine» mean he’s not sure or that they guessed right about him being out? 

I think it means he hasn’t heard from Mark or Travis in a while and had no idea what’s going on with the band

In better news, I’m staying up North this weekend and the hotel I’m at is set up for a wedding tomorrow. Never seen a better opportunity to wedding crash in my life lol. Bark 3 times at the full moon tonight for me for good luck

looks like skiba himself is siding with me on this one. 

Nothing he says there really implies Tom is back though, just that he's unsure of what's happening with blink right now. I guess you mean he's siding with you because neither of you have any clue at the moment.

at this point what makes you think blink is coming back with skiba instead of tom? 

if my boss shut the business down for like three years and stopped talking to me entirely, i'd safely assume i'm not coming back to work.

Wow that’s fucked of Mark and Travis to just leave him guessing. Maybe this nice guy act from Mark is just that, an act. I don’t even care about Skiba but I hate fake assholes 

I prefer real assholes too 😉
 

I’d be content with either outcome.  Just so long as they tour every few years or so until they’re too old and decrepit to perform.

I'm not but Tom is still a flakey cunt and Mark (hopefully) isn't a total asshole that would just replace Matt after all he did for him without even letting him know.

Total assumption on your part that they have stopped talking entirely. All we can gather from this is they haven't discussed the future of blink lately. Matt's been busy with Trio stuff for a while now, Mark could just be giving him the time to get through that before kicking blink off again.

All this shit can easily be spun either way. Some works more towards one theory some doesn't. I feel like you're so determined to be correct about this at this point that if Mark posted a photo of him and Matt in the studio together you'd claim its just a bait and switch so it's a real surprise when they reveal Tom is back. I prefer to think Mark is still a decent guy and if Matt is out of the band we will get a proper confirmation and not just him replying to some random instagram comment.

I would say it’s a bit more of an assumption, maybe if he just left it at the first sentence it’s more of an idk I get filled in when I get filled in. But then he had to add that he’s proud of and thankful for his time in the band like he thinks it may be past tense.

How are you one of the leads in one of the biggest rock bands in the world for six years and then just not know if you’re in the band anymore. Seems pretty fucked to me. Clearly something is up. And if they are keeping in touch then he definitely thinks something is off about his place in the band, but it sounds more like they’re not in touch.

Also mark just told davey last week that he and Travis are recording blink for the rest of the year. How would davey know that blink is recording, but not Matt lol.

There was that rumor out of Brazil that they were going to perform as a four piece. Idk weird stuff is going on.

And I’ll just reiterate, how can you leave one of your lead members uncertain of whether he’s still even in the band after three years even if he is in fact in the band. It’s fucked for their dynamic to be that way regardless. That part of it I don’t feel like there’s much to spin.

edit:

top post on the Reddit post summing up the timeline

Bit of a timeline:

Mark gets sick, Tom and Travis spend several hours at Mark's house after the diagnosis, Mark and Tom both say afterwards that they now speak every single day.

Skiba says next album is almost done

Album completely scrapped

AVA cancels UK tour out of the blue

Tour rumors start running wild

Fedez says Blink is playing in Italy next year and there's secrets Mark told him but Fedez cannot reveal and spoil it

Mark is in the studio and has yet to reveal what he's working on

Tom is in the studio working on "recording guitars, and uhhh... a live AVA album"

Skiba says publicly he doesn't have a clue if he's in the band anymore”

 

Also apparently mark said he was writing blink songs this week on his radio show but is unable to write anything happy.

Ugh I feel bad for Matt. I know everyone put the blame on Tom for breaking up blink-182 but it really just feels like every member of the band is just a shitty communicator. How could Matt not know if he’s in blink-182 or not? That’s on Mark and Travis. Tom didn’t even know he got kicked out of the band in 2015 until after we did. Remember how he tweeted that he was still in the band? And then later he was like “oh I guess I’m not actually.”

I want Mark to be happy, but also, Sad Mark writes the best music. If it’s too sad just make it a +44 album 😎
