LIVE REVIEW: Blink-182 ‘Untitled’ 10-Year Anniversary Show (11/7/13)

For some reason Blink-182 has always been a band everyone likes. I have vivid memories of hearing “Going Away To College” for the first time when I was 15, and my older brother then giving me a copy of Buddha for my birthday. Their music became the standard for car trips and singing along to “Josie” set the bar for how to have fun driving down route 146. My mom even loved to sing the high harmonies on songs like “First Date” so despite the vulgar language they were acceptable to play in the car.

There has just always been …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Filmage: The Story of Descendents / ALL’

Director of Photography: Justin Wilson
Editor: James Rayburn, Deedle LaCour, Justin Wilson

The guys in Descendents all knew that they weren’t cut out for the glamorous punk rock scene of Hollywood. Hell, the guys were too busy drinking coffee, farting, fishing, and playing mad scientist to worry about styling their hair and getting leather jackets. That didn’t stop them from changing rock music forever.

EP STREAM: Blink-182 – ‘Dogs Eating Dogs’

We talked about the likelihood of something like this happening a little earlier today, and here we are with a complete stream of Blink-182′s upcoming EP, Dogs Eating Dogs. The anticipation for this release has been so great that it seems trivial to attempt recounting the progress the group have made up to this point, so I’ll just go on record now as saying this collection of tracks (in my opinion) far outshine the material found on their last full length. You can stream Dogs Eating Dogs and decide for yourself, after the jump.

There will be even more …

ALBUM PREVIEW: Blink-182 – Dogs Eating Dogs

Well Christmas is in the air, and blink-182 has been teasing their new EP with a stream of their new song “Boxing Day,” and today we can give you another tease with a sample of each song of the new EP Dogs Eating Dogs. The songs are a little more punky (although a bit too much synth for my taste, but I can’t control the world), and they will definitely please even the most casual of blink-182 fans. Dogs Eating Dogs comes out next week on December 18, and it will be an independent release from the band.

Enough talk …
