  • How did Blink make the connection with Janine for the album cover ? (apparently the band didn't know that she was a pornstar)
  • Was the album cover always going to be the one with the nurse on it with the gloves ? Or were there some alternate ones that they didn't chose to use ?
  • What does he think about the fact that this album cover is now considered iconic ? And that it screams late 90s nostalgia in the pop punk scene  ?
  • Regarding the inside sleeve of the album (the one with Blink queuing with other people for the nurse), who are the other people with them ? Close friend of the band or just hired models ? Don't know if I'm right, I think the person next to Mark and Travis in the first picture is the guy in the Josie video that gets the letter as well as being in the ambulance with Mark, I maybe wrong though.
  • Were there any official merch with the nurse cover on the front ?

If you have questions for Christopher Holmes, let's hear them ;)

Tagging some folks who may not check this thread, as this is huge (and I'm trying to keep this stuff exclusive to this thread)... @boxelder @Kay @daveyjones @Ghent @JarJarBlinks @_Kyle_ @Patient #48273

here's an interview from 7?(damn) years ago with him if you want a reference of what's already been discussed or asked. I guess a good question would be how do you feel about the DED EP considering it was such a crunch and maybe the last time Tom would record with Blink. It also never got a physical release, which is a shame, but does he feel like the record was more of a ploy to get people to join modlife or genuine artistic expression or what exactly? How exactly was it approached since blink was acting independently at the time. How open was the recording experience overall in a sense of it being the last one for the trio of M+T+T for the foreseeable future. Were there ideas that just didn't make it?

Very cool podcast. 

As for questions for Chris Holmes, I recall Tom doing an interview right after the most recent breakup and he said something along the lines of "I did most of the work for DED and pushed the recording process along" or that he spent the most amount of time in the studio. Maybe Chris can shed more light on that - were his comments true, and if they were, why were Travis/Mark not involved in recording DED as much as Tom was? Was it based on their failing/toxic relationship and not wanting to spend time together, or were there other reasons/motives (as @_Kyle_ said, Mod Life might have been the motivating factor for Tom).

Also, it makes a huge difference having a host that is generally stoked about all things blink-182, including current blink. This would be unlistenable if the host was bitching about Matt and California and Feldmann all the time. You’re the perfect person to do this podcast, Ry.

Neighbourhoods prod sucks on some tracks i found. MH is a big one. the chorus has like 4 guitar parts all drowning eachother out which is a huge part of why i dislike that song

Lol that makes sense since I haven't listened to that track since like 2012.

My Neighborhoods rotation pretty much always omits MH 4.18.2011 and Fighting the Gravity.

@Ry-Bread it might be a bit too soon and too ambitious, but have you thought about reaching out to Tom to have as a guest? 

I feel like he'd be reluctant based on many factors (how the Joe Rogan podcast went for him, possible feelings of resentment from Blink fans for his departure, etc.), so it would need to be done in a very delicate way. But I can see him being open to it and clearing the air a bit. I think it would be helpful if you emphasized that we're all huge fans of his, and that he could promote all of his future projects on it.

@Tom Bot yeah obviously Tom/Mark/Scott/Trav/Matt would be amazing but that’ll be *very* tough, which is why I am kinda building this stuff up slowly and gaining credibility. I do think I’ll have a decent shot with one of them somehow at some point if I keep it up. (Likely will have best chance with Mark/Trav IMO)

You’re the man! Sorry, but I can’t figure out where to listen to these podcasts? Where are they on Spotify? Looked up blink-182online and didn’t find anything
