Dips All Day Everyday.
I had not been to the Fonda in a few years, and the raised sections to the left and right of the stage were a great viewing area of the show, especially for my girlfriend, since she's shorter and usually there is someone blocking her view.
Also, next time, I will have to check out the Blue Palms.
I used to be a fan of Blink 182, but I was already way tuned out by the times the s/t came out. Is it really considered "iconic?"
I Miss You, Feeling This, Down, Always are some of the biggest pop punk gems of all time
Regardless of whether the album should be considered iconic or not, a 41-year old man and a 37-year old man are still singing about the trials and tribulations of high school and no one seems to be calling them out on it.
Lulz my highschool boyfriend definitely made me a mix CD that included "First Date," "All The Small Things, and "What Went Wrong" and "Josie"

still hoping for inter-song mom joke banter even if perhaps their mothers have passed away
The pilgrimage is not perfected save by copulation with the camel.
Friday December 6
this is a good read with respect to that.
I think this was the album where Blink got "serious". death, getting older, blah blah blah.
Blink will always hold a special place in my heart. First time I saw them was in maybe '94 at the Showcase Theater in Corona, playing second on a bill of 5 bands. Had a lot of good times at their shows, eventually ending up working for 98 Posse(Holla, Psychic Friend)and co-promoting a bunch of their shows with Goldenvoice. Lots of crazy backstage antics, shots before taking the stage, etc. Was at a disneyland grad night with my friends band, the Aquabats, the night after Travis left them to join Blink. He went from making little money to his first show with the Blink being a girl's private bday party in Utah and making something like $16,000 for the show. Insane. So many great memories, may just have to go and relive a few.

I still remember the lyrics to "shitpissfuckcuntcocksuckermotherfuckertitsfarttur dandtwat"...
Gahhhh! Warpaint + James Blake @ Wiltern & Hollywood Forever. Very jealous...
ps Psychic Ills will be the opener for Mazzy Star dates!
I mean, regardless of whether you like them or not, they're definitely iconic of a certain time. Blink was one of the biggest bands in the world for a period of time, I don't think THAT term is incorrect for them, although it definitely is for that album.
Well, no, I think Dude Ranch could certainly become described as such. It was a behemoth hit that took punk rock into the hands of even broader audiences than The Offspring or Green Day had done before, and set the stage for countless impersonators and basically started a whole new wave of pop punk. However one might feel about them critically is an entirely different story, but to deny the impact that band has had is silly (especially from somebody who is borderline fetishistic about bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, and Muse).
