Yeah, I'm finally doing mine. I upped it from 15-20, and I left off some obvious ones (Beatles, Radiohead, Weezer, etc.). Also, no particular order. But, yeah. Here goes nothing.

So needless to say, the past few days have been filled with intense excitement concerning the reunion. I don't want to repeat everything I've said in multiple threads and newsposts, but it's still monumental. It has caused me to realize some things though:
I wish there were someone here at school that I knew was excited about this the same way I am. Most of the people I know either don't even know who blink are or don't care. I mean, I shared the moment with people on here, but I just can't help but wish I could share it with some friends here.
Making the "who's blink-182?" or "blink-182 got back together?" joke isn't funny anymore. It was, but it got old really fast. And at this point it's just lame. Stop it. Please.
It IS possible to listen to the same band for (going on) 4 days straight. I've yet to get tired of listening to blink's discography, which is just another testament to them.
I'm not completely sure why it is that I wrote this blog, but I couldn't help but feel like I needed to. Oh well, now I'll get back to listening, waiting for my new shirt to come, and looking on Ap.net for new blink news.
The melody is simple; the music is sparse but still beautiful.
The lyrics are minimal, and in reality, they don't say much, but I feel like there's a certain level of emotion in them, especially the delivery, that just gets me every time.
Maybe I just have an odd obsession with this song.
I was introduced to it as a pre-teen of 12, going on a camping trip, no less. At first I was simply captivated with the wonderful 80's sound.
As I grew older, the song, along with others, became pivotal in major events in my life, almost always with girls, but also with graduation, along with Closing Time by Semisonic.
Ever since that fateful day I just can't get tired of this song.
NOTE: I know the picture is cheesy, but please just give me this moment, I'm on a nostalgia fix right now.
