It is well known that blink were leaning towards that AVA sound. Asthenia & Not Now were early examples. Mark even confirmed in that 2005-2006 interview that they were already working on the follow up to the smiley face album in 2004. Adventure was the song that was supposed to be for blink. Mark mentioned other AVA songs too but not by name.

I heard It Hurts and I think The War were the two Blink demos used for AvA.

Untitled is possibly my favorite album ever too, but it only feels as good as it once did when feeling really nostalgic. I've heard all those songs so many times, but Here's Your Letter and Stockholm Syndrome, heck half that album never fails to impress me still.

Neighborhoods just seems to be better than it was at release or shortly after it. Dude Ranch too, hasn't dropped in value either.  Has to do with the writing.

Sometimes aging well just means releasing brilliant and staying brilliant 20 years later. Sure Neighborhoods has steadily gotten better with time, but Untitled has stayed as brilliant as the day it released, even 2 decades later.

Considering The Machine's guitar part was recycled for Snake Charmer, I bet that tune was being played around for blink back then as well.

It Hurts does sound like a blink song I think haha. I'm sure there's a video somewhere of Tom playing the War whilst still in blink. I've tried to find it before but can't find it whatsoever. I just remember Tom wearing the orange hat backwards and a white t shirt whilst playing the riff on an acoustic. His hair was kinda short at that point so i feel like that was in 2004.

It's definitely not the video where he's recording it for AVA even though he's wearing a white shirt on that AVA video. But I distinctively remember a video in colour of him playing an AVA song on acoustic whilst in blink

Weird how his clothing sense and haircuts have always changed for each era of blink and AVA haha.

Found the video haha. Turns out I was half right half wrong. Was half right and half wrong about his hat too. Turns out it was orange but not backwards. I thought it was the War and not the Machine.

Wade from Unwritten Law calling Tom out on his bullshit. This is awesome. What’s funny is Tom mentioned Wade in a podcast sometime this year talking about how he used to beat people up at shows. Tom better watch his back!

Lol who knows. He’s not wrong though 

I don’t know, I’m gullible as fuck and even I see Tom’s ventures as a scam. I don’t feel pity for those dumb enough to hand Tom a wad of cash to fund his insanity … especially the ones who do it more than once. I love Tom, I’m a giant Tombot but the guy is laughing all the way to the bank.

I mean I wouldn’t consider you a real Tombot. At least you’re realistic. I still don’t think it makes it right for him to prey on impressionable fans but he’s free to try. Doubt he’s gotten that much money from anyone as of late anyways

This is so funny to me considering the blink guys were UL fans. Imagine getting dunked on by someone you looked up to? Ouch
