In other Plus 44 news: the tunes that will make up the album are "Lycanthrope," "Baby Come On," "Little Death," "155," "Lillian," "Cliff Diving," "Weatherman," "No It Isn't," "Make You Smile," "Chapter 13," an electro-instrumental dubbed "Interlude" and the title track, which the band shot a video for earlier this month with director Liz Friedlander.

I'd have way to much to say for a forum post - maybe I'll write about it in my journal some night when I'm bored. The short version is that everyone handles things differently. Just like in a relationship break-up; sometimes one party sits and says nothing, sometimes one party calls the other a filthy whore. Usually depends on what happened, and who fucked who during the relationship, as to what scenario plays out.

I hear you.

As vetrens of the music industry, I thought it would have been handled a little more professionally. I think Mark is an amazing musician, and what seems like a great guy. I guess I thought if anyone was to call anyone out it would have been Tom. I thought Mark would have been the one to not say anything.

Why wouldn't you say something? Everyone wants to know who ruined Blink182, if you're asked, should you keep lying like your old record exec wanted you to? I know I wouldn't.

It was obviously Tom that was the cause. I'm not blind but I can clearly see that over the last 5 years Mark and Travis haven't changed that bit. It's Tom that has gone off the deep end. He sounds, looks, and acts totally different. While Mark and Tom are trying to stay true to themselves, it's Tom who's trying to act like he's God and running through fields, flailing his arms in music videos and acting like it's the most artistic thing ever. Tom has done an absolute 180 in the last few years. And as a Blink fan, it sucks.
