look at those beautiful bags under his tired eyes... haha. Mark rules.

he kind of dances around the question about a physical copy of Dogs Eating Dogs, but apparently they're meeting about a CD/vinyl release of it, according to this interview, so that's neat. and i guess they're also in talks about re-releasing some older Blink albums on vinyl (again?)

Hoppus is the man, he could be rockin' no hair at all and still be a badass.

I was trying to decide if that was an intentional design feature or just a tear for about half of that video.

He also brought up an interesting point about bands turning to other companies for funding of their recording efforts - like the Gap, or Levis - in lieu of the traditional label advance. This was after he sort of denounced Kickstarter because he preferred Artists to make the first move before he gave them his money. However, I think if it was a choice between those two methods of getting money to make a recording - getting your band funded by some company or getting it funded by a fan base - I would choose the latter.

I agree. Though he didn't necessarily say he agreed with the whole "Levi's/Gap/etc." sponsorship he just noted that type of funding is in existence and he believes will become much more prevalent. It's already pretty prevalent in music videos.
