Finally got this painted up, I think it turned out pretty nice!  

holy fuck I'm shaking.  Producer calls me at 12:15 says he'll be calling back in about an hour.   Called at 1255 and it was Mark pretending to be the producer, I mentioned  how blink-182online wa

I'll be gone until Friday so I'll get back to this then.

No, I'm holding them accountable for saying "picking up where we left off". Picking up where they left off doesn't mean releasing AVA albums, movies, and tours and tv shows and solo albums with a 2 week blink tour thrown in there for good measure.

The message did not imply they'd cancel their ongoing sideprojects. Assuming otherwise would have been unreasonable. Not their fault if you saw the message the way you wanted to see it.

Just because we know there will be a new album some day doesn't validate their statement.

Even if they released the album in 2015, the statement would still be valid.

To steal Oliver's term, you are a blink ass kisser.

No one thought they'd drop their side projects!!!

But we were pretty much lead to believe that there was a tour and an album would be in the works soon after the tour. All the quotes point to this. It's all on the last page.

Then BEFORE completing anything other then a tour, they (or Tom) dropped Blink and went back to the side projects. The reunion stalled. Some people want to act like Blink has been hard at work for 2 years and we just aren't being patient. This is bullshit! Even a blind man could see that after 2009 Blink closed up shop before delivering on any new material. This runs contrary to the tons of hype that was built up around new material 2 years ago.

Trying to spin this to make it seem like we should have expected this is RETARDED. Trying to make it seem like the Blink 182 reunion has been ongoing for 2 years is RETARDED.

I am still waiting for them to come back from their hiatus in 2009.

I remember when they made the announcement I was highly skeptical that it would actually come out summer 2009. I figured it would probably get pushed back to spring 2010. Now I'm sitting here (almost spring 2011), and I think best case scenario is the album dropping next summer.

If that's picking up where they left off then I must just be a total fucking idiot. Where they left off  pre-hiatus was recording shit on the road, locking themselves in a house recording together, doing promos, releasing videos, isolating their side projects (BCR, Transplants), and actually being friends.

Now blink can't even exist without a gigantic elephant in the room (AVA). I think it's pretty obvious that tensions still exist within blink regarding AVA and until that gets addressed I really don't expect blink to kick back in gear. As of now, blink is just an advertising outlet for AVA and Mark knows it.

I think they have more than we think done. Think about it. All the time in a day, they're musicians. Tom said he would switch each day and work on Blink and AVA on the other day, but now that the Love movie's scored he can record full time for Blink. Mark works on the Blink album and his show. Travis has been doing his solo album in the same studio where Mark records, you think he wouldn't record any drums for Blink? Not to mention he's doing the Transplants too and he's going on tour for his solo album. They have a deadline in place, April/May for ALL recording to be finished. Blink also has a tour planned to promote it. It'll be done.

LOL yeah that's not even Tom's facebook account.

We don't even deserve a new Blink album.

Please explain.

You guys won't be happy when the albums out.

You guys wouldn't be so angry if you just went with the mind frame that it'll be out when it's out.

I see all your points i really do but there's no point anymore in discussing how much we "think/know" they have done, how much we "think/know" they've been in the studio together.

I'm not being an ass kisser or anything cause really i don't care anymore, it comes out when it comes out, no point in beating ourselves up over it. There's just nothing else that needs to be repeated over and over again. If the album comes out great if not then oh well no big deal.

The album will probably be my favorite album of all time regardless of how good it is. I've invested too much of my life loving blink not to rationalize anything bad about it away and make it my favorite.

There's no point in discussing it? Well I guess people should just stop discussing the protests in Egypt then. And the legality of abortion. And pretty much everything else people discuss or debate about that they can't change anyway.

The reason some people get so mad about others voicing frustration is because deep down they know they should be upset too. Therefore, reading our shit brings out thoughts they don't want to have about blink.
