my guess is he will way pay for its own premiere in san diego and then pay another small film festival to screen it. best case scenario, it will get bought by some super small distribution company based on tom's name alone and end up on a streaming service nobody has such as "tubi" or whatever. no legitimate theatrical run. 

fuck you, tubi is awesome.

I mean it leaked through his organization and afterwards the government said the shit was real.  I don't think his organization has accomplished much else in terms of disclosure, but still that wasn't nothing. Credit where credit is due in my book.  Even though again, I know that average Joe is well aware that there has been shit in our skies that we weren't able to identity the origin of.

You’re definitely embellishing this story. Doesn’t deserve that much credit as Ghent already said.

It’s sad because if Tom never left blink in 2005, he probably could have built blink into this massive multimedia project thing for adolescents and mark and Travis could have kept things within reason and gotten massive funding from labels, investors, etc. under the blink name to do these ambitious things he wanted to. Instead this is the type of stuff we’ve gotten since 2005, cool ideas that are underfunded / half assed and completely chaotic in direction since he has to have all of the control.

Its not unbelievable to me that blink would be playing stadiums right now like Coldplay and the killers and potentially even theatrical movies they help produce; but this is where we are.

Didn't Tom pitch Poet Anderson to Mark and Travis in Colorado?  I feel like there was some kind of meeting they had right before they broke up or something.

He pitched modlife and the whole fan base thing and blink as a multimedia project. They did a retreat in Utah. I think things were to off the rails at the point which is why I said 2005. If blink has grown organically and Tom not having soured the well, I could have seen mark and Travis more inclined to try out those types of things and giving Tom a shot.

 

and just rewatched the trailer and the score is the best thing about it. Hopefully Ilan and Aaron won’t feel bad when everyone shits on it because I’m sure their part in it will be great

Band summit in Thackerville, Oklahoma. It was supposed to be in Utah but ended up there at a casino lol. I was at that show. I don't think it's where he pitched Poet, but that's what you're thinking of

Yeah I think if 2005 Tom had pitched those ideas while they were at the peak of their creativity and fame that Mark and Travis would have been very open to it.

Instead it was 2011+ Tom who had just half assed the entire blink reunion so Mark and Travis gave it a pass and I can’t blame them.

I would have been more surprised if the Empire Club wasn’t a blatant cash grab that randomly fizzled out. We have seen this same song and dance going back to the Army of Angels fan club.

Dude has been a broken record since 2006. He has spent more time scheming and scamming with AVA than he has in blink-182. How can the tombots not be fed up yet?

Is this Tom Delonge’s legacy? Clock is ticking..

Man this is so depressing.  Tom is legitimately evil for taking advantage of these poor saps.

15 large films in the works… how many see the light of day?  Setting the over/under at 1.5.  Who is he making these films for?!?  A couple thousand people might actually see these films, and that’s perhaps generous.
