Tom needs to pull the stick out of his ass, stop the whole angels and airwaves thing, re learn how to sing, and just focus on blink.

this, blink should be his main focus on all their minds and its not. Travis and mark are doing their own thing to, its pretty annoying.

Why should blink be the main focus? They all have other things going on, things that they've been doing since blink broke up. Just because they reunited doesn't mean they should instantly drop everything else they've been working on and focus solely on blink.

"The problem is, now that blink is back in my life, I have to decide if I want to express my angst or my soul.”

This should be interesting...

“I would lose straight away if I went on ‘American Idol,’ ” DeLonge said. “But those guys (on ‘Idol’) will never be known for defining a generation of young suburbanites like (blink) did.”

funny way of putting it, but very true indeed...no one on idol, or much of any musician at all (with some exception ) can have such a huge impact on a single generation than mark tom and travis did

Well I'm saying why shouldn't they be allowed to do things besides blink? They already did one huge reunion tour and are about to do another one soon. Just because they reunited doesn't mean they have to work strictly on blink.

any advice on how to live my life as long as you're dishing it out for others?

personally, i love mark, tom, and travis individually, as well as with Blink 182. so any new music coming from any of them is exciting to me. the more the merrier!

Alex_Weiland 05/24/10 12:23 PM

Stop the vanity project Tom. I think he is really scared about making another blink record.... bands are never the same once they break up and reunite.

deFobbed14yrs 05/24/10 12:24 PM

yeah w/e blink record plz

Yeah, stop being a douche and make it a point to come out of the closet your friends and family already know, you're not fooling anyone you homo
