I’m bored. Here’s what my Tom DeLonge partscaster sounds like through a Vox Valvetronix that has a channel made to mimic a Dual Rectifier…if anyone cares, I think some people were wondering what it sounded like. It’s just recorded from an iPhone, no plugins or special microphones. In hindsight I shouldn’t have slanted my amp upwards with the iPhone recording on the ground, but oh well, I’m lazy and don’t feel like redoing lol. Little bit of GMOGR for ya

I remember mark mentioned on the UC2 that they didn’t really “get” Travis until 01 or whatever and I think that just was just how he was. Immediate fame is probably a mindfuck like that.

It was only two weeks ago when the South American Lollapalooza was hinting at a 2023 show with Tom, but now they're talking about a Mark, Matt and Travis show:  https://www.facebook.com/100044421460052/posts/pfbid037k5VFzs6EjiJGEbUpdj5yZhMgFeytjHVFKcESmhcnBAPFMpowcGvpsfCiZqVWBwFl/ 

Were they only saying it originally because it's what THEY wanted? lol

The world needs more people like Mark, Skye and Jack. 

For sure. As much fun as we have critiquing or poking fun or getting frustrated based on what WE would prefer Blink to be like, that's all just fantasyland stuff. He's a great dude with what seems like a great family.

Clearly based on Tom and Travis it's hard to keep your head when you become ultra famous haha, but Mark makes it look easy.

Mark does not make it look easy.   Putting the major health issues aside, it seems like he's gone through several crisis regarding fame and the whole band situation/getting old etc.  Their family looks super but I'm sure they have problems too.

He definitely seems the most level headed of the group but that's in comparison to friggin Travis Barker, Tom Delonge, and Scott Raynor.  Now Skiba.

 

Not hard to do in comparison.

Also, Mark is always my favorite, but I'd say he definitely wants to be in the limelight, a bit superior/more famous than lead to believe.  Not saying he's on Travis's level, god no, but Hoppus on Music?  His meltdown over the results of Neighborhoods? dropping +44 immediatley? Selling out the band to Feldmann and co like it's purely a brand name?  Treating Skiba like a major stand in, etc.

He really wants blink back in the spotlight.  Whether that's the fame or the money, or making up for lost times/income from Tom's hiatus, I don't know.  But sometimes it seems a superiority thing because of their early fame.  Tom is delusional, a dick, but always seemed like the more relatable one with fans (pre-scams).  And still lives in San Diego and what not.  Didn't Mark move to LA to be in the country's largest shithole epicenter of pretentiousness?  I don't know anyone that moves to LA to be the humble anomaly there.

Just saying, I don't feel like he's fully trying to connect with fans whenever Mark is on podcasts/interviews, twitch or whatever it may be.  I think he definitely struggles letting go.

 

Love his features though on random young artists and his cancer scare and then beating it literally gave me chills, from a fan's perspective.

 

I'm also not a Mark hater.  Just disagree with the sentiment he's mr. humble.  I don't care really either.

 

edit: I also realize this was now branching off his upcoming book at beating cancer, which is not at all related to what I'm saying.  Just random discussion's sake for the whole blink tenure, not anything related to that.

if you'd been hanging out on his discord server for the past two years you would likely have a very different impression.
