Being on camera is awkward. Especially when you're an awkward person...like me.

And I wanna see Tate's video

...anyway! Please pick me! Cause if you don't...well, I'll just have to fight you.

This is how i initially found out about Blink too! my mom would get mad cause the "work sucks" part. Also love the transit in the background. nice video.

Text version for those who don't want to watch:
I have been a Blink fan since I was 10 years old. I don't know the exact date I first heard of them, but I remember one of my then-close friends having Cheshire Cat in his CD case. It stuck out to me because of the handicapped man logo. So in '97, I remember hearing Dammit and falling in love with that song. It wasn't until Can't Hardly Wait came out the next year that I was able to track down Dude Ranch and get listening to Blink as a whole. This was when I put together the first time I heard them(Cheshire Cat logo on the CD my friend had) with the name Blink-182. I was so enthused(pun intended) I was only 11 by then but I was totally hooked. Apple Shampoo became my favorite song and I said to myself, if I ever got a tattoo, it would be lyrics from that song on my wrist. It took me until April 24, 2010, but those lyrics (if you're feeling scared, remember the time we shared, you know that it meant everything to me) are on my left wrist now and forever. So I got into them hard right before Enema of the State was released, and my second biggest first Blink moment was going into my 7th grade science class and somehow Blink came up...turns out my teacher was an ex-DJ and the next day he brought in the advance copy of Dude Ranch that featured different cover art and an extra song...at that point I was on a mission and every day since I've sought out as much Blink stuff as I can find...you can see 99% of my collection here;

My first concert was Blink on the Mark Tom and Travis tour in PA on 6.7.00, that made me fall in love with concerts. Since then I've been to 11 more Blink shows including my 100th concert on 8.19 of this year.

I got my first Blink tattoo in 09 and did a pass the torch deal of the new bunny and the old bunny with one of my favorite logos I also have a Famous stars and straps tattoo on my right shoulder I got in 09 as well. then I got balls enough to get the lyrics on my wrist(because of work etc) in April 2010 like I said.Then I decided to add to it on Neighborhood's release date and did this beneath the bunnies:


I really, really love this band. I think you can tell that if you look at my site and tattoos. I would be super honored to win.
you better win
