It's quite a long read, just to warn you.

It proves Tom DeLonge is the biggest asshole in the history of music!

Now, they weren't very talented by any means, but they made some enjoyable music. Yes, technically it is "music."

I liked some Blink. Mostly just Dude Ranch actually. But I found this cartoon hilarious anyway.

Weren't you the kid that freaked out on me and called me an asshole because I said that Tom is untalented?

Don't you remember - I admitted he was an asshole back like 4 months ago? I admitted I was wrong about Tom DeLonge. I never called you an asshole. Lol.

I also said I wanted to change my name, but I don't know how to do it.

its interesting to hear marks point of view! i cant wait to hear the album but i hope it doesnt turn into a slanging match and all the truth coming out about blink around the release of the album to kinda hype it up!

I'm not sure what to think about the article... I don't think it's that professional of him or nice of him to go around bashing tom... he could be the bigger man in the situation. Plus, who knows Tom's side? I don't like tom from what I hear in the media, but I try not to jump to conclusions.

Mark was being honest about Tom. Where was the bashing? How can Tom ask his manager to quit the band for him? He was supposed to be best friends with Mark and Travis, he could have had the guts to say to their face, rather than ask their manager to do it for him. Also, Tom used Blink's demos for his new band. He also plays Down at his show, but didn't he quit the band that made that song? He's a fucking coward! I hope Angels and Airwaves fail, which they're already are after Mark's interview. He's losing fans, fast.

We've already heard Tom's side, in Kerrang! and MTV last year. Back in September/October of last year I believe. He was basically trying to make Mark and Travis look like assholes by saying the stuff he in them articles. I believe Mark way before Tom, because Tom's gone crazy with his bullshit crap, saying "Angels and Airwaves will change rock" and "the best music in decades." Tom's a liar - it's been proven. He tries to cover it up by saying "he's joking," but he says that "joke" about a million times, in every article he does for Angels and Airwaves. Here's the MTV article from last year:

http://www.mtv.com/bands/b/blink_182/qa_feature_103105/

Tom can't get out of this one - he's a fucking contradicting prick!

Oh, we should have a new interview soon - Tom's decided to do one, with a website called www.tomsangels.com - that site is shit. It's hated by most people. What they have done is "forwarded" the questions to "Tom," and he'll e-mail them back. I think this interview from Tom's Angels will be bullshit, because I think they'll make it up and use one of this moderators to write a bullshit interview just to make Tom look good.

But see, my whole point in that was that you kept saying that I had no right to say what I did because what he does takes hard work, not because of my opinion on the music. Then, you turn around and agree with me. It was incredibly stupid and hypocritical, therefore, you're an idiot.

I'm not just creating another band, I'm trying to create the world's greatest rock band.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.



I knew that Angels was going to be the biggest band in the world.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.


Everyone I talk to says stuff like "Music sucks today," and I'm going to try and change all that.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

That was fucking awesome.

I almost respect the Tom article more than the Mark article. Tom didn't talk negatively about Mark or Travis. My conclusion is that I don't care what I read, I have no need to form an opinion on famous people. I can't stand Tom's voice, and AVA is boring... so I don't care what I think about him as a person... if I like Plus 44, then so be it. I don't know these guys, and no interview is ever going to show me who they really are...

You already said all that stuff to me in the other thread. Lol.

People can be wrong you know. Oh well, let's move on from it.

He was the smart one, no one wants to tour around the world singing fucking "First Date" when they're 40.

The members of the Beatles were much, much worse to each other.

How do you know the mark interview is not a fake? For god's sake, its from b182.com

That's not Blinks official site, not Plus44's offical site, it's just some random fan site.
I was a fan of Dude Ranch, but They're both evil. Tom's a dick, and Mark is the reason we have to put up with Motion City Soundtrack.

I'm still yet to believe that Delonge is being completely serious when he waxes lyrical about how world-changing Angels and Airwaves are. It's just too assholey* to be serious.

*Yes, assholey.

every time I try to listen to AVA, I like the music and then Tom starts singing... and I get totally annoyed. And he doesn't do anything original ever, so the album feels like the same song the entire time. It's really just crap.

Technically, Breet Gurewitz is the reason, since he signed them to Epitaph. Also, the band's first hit, The Future Freaks Me Out, wasn't produced by Hoppus.

I respect Mark's a lot more because it's honest and not cowardly at all like Tom's. Tom's has all of these little passive agressive jabs instead of just saying it, which is a total pussy move.

I feel like I'm in 8th grade again because of this post.

Because Mark has B182.com in his MySpace top 8. He likes that site.

He also had an interview with AbsolutePunk.net, so it wasn't just B182.com Mark talked to.

The interview is real!

Hoppus was who 'discovered' them was he not?

Tis what I heard anyway.
I'm sick of hearing about Mark and Tom's shit.
