Well I can tell you one thing, if I'm going to make a best of playlist of these guys or even an easy listening, not nit-picking, it's going to include Blink through Neighborhoods, Boxcar Racer, +44, Alkaline Trio and almost zero California/Nine. 

When it flips from Darkside (a song I think I like) to Please Take Me Home and then Letters To God and then Waggy (this just happened) it's just too jarring.

Haha, I do this with Neighborhoods, Dogs Eating Dogs, Dream Walker, AVA's Chasing Shadows EP and Tom's demos album. I do a separate one for California & Nine as they just don't fit with the Neighborhoods/Dream Walker era.

I did try to include a couple of LOVE songs but AVA's Dream Walker era fits better. It's basically my what if Neighborhoods album. I also tried to do AVA's 2006-07 era with +44 but it doesn't work for me.

Yeah I group AVA playlists with Neighborhoods and Tom's solo stuff as well.  Good mix also, but Boxcar fits better with the blink stuff forsure.

Got damn, did Matt really say "your guess is as good as mine?"

That's just scarily cold.  We knew he was never fully immersed into the band, which was messed but kind of understandable, but they keep him this on the outside is just odd as fuck.  Like I'm pretty sure Matt Skiba knows he will never ''fully'' be blink or replace Tom, but ffs just commit to the guy in the meantime instead of making it a complete stand in/fill in mockery.  Even then, a stand in/fill in usually knows their wherabouts in the band to some extent.

Don’t feel bad for Skiba. He got his money. I think there was probably some moment in time, probably recording, where he realized he wasn’t going to get any creative control. The fact Mark wouldn’t let him sing his own songs speaks volumes. I think he is just happy to have a piece of the pie.

It’d be so funny if it’s literally just the fuckin’ ugly ass dolls.

I was just coming here to type that I was on twitter and saw articles in at least 7 different languages (english, french, greek, italian, portuguese, polish and spanish) teasing about the fact that Tom might be back today, I can't imagine how we're going to feel if they just release those funkos and some t-shirts lol

According to Reddit the Funko things release at 9am PST. So there’s a chance it all happens same time?

I'm still pretty cautious about this. They've had a morning merch drop once per month this entire year. Always at 9am PST

My hunch is that nothing is happening today besides that. Hope I'm wrong

Can you imagine Mark posting:

We’re extremely pleased to announce Tom’s arrival to the Funko Pop line. This has been in the works for a long time, had to keep it secret for obvious reasons, but the day is here on blink’s 30th anniversary and we couldn’t think of any better way to celebrate than releasing these 3 collectibles to our loyal fans.
