Staying Together For the Kids: Blink-182 is Back!

Blink-182 fans rejoice! There’s a phrase not a lot of people born this side of 1990 have ever heard. For those of you who didn’t come of age in the early 2000s, or have a love of pop punk like I do, let me give you a refresher on who I’m talking about. The California-based band was founded in 1992, but they didn’t find commercial success until their album released at the end of the millennium, titled, Enema of the State, which features classics such as “All the Small Things,” “What’s My Age Again” and “ Adam’s Song.” These are all great songs that I highly recommend. 

Lead guitarist/vocalist and band co-founder Tom DeLonge has a habit of leaving and coming back to the band over the years. The last time that he left the band was back in 2015, but within the past few weeks, the band announced in hilarious fashion that DeLonge had rejoined the band and that they would be going on tour together next year.

It’s the Season of the Sticks

Stick season is known in Vermont as a time of transition, a feeling that underlies the album throughout changing relationships, towns and seasons.

Don’t Worry Kyoko (In Memory of Alan White)

Only 20 years old in December 1969, the Lyceum Ballroom concert marked White’s second performance with the Plastic Ono Band. Before that, he and the rest of the group had performed three months before at the Toronto Rock ‘n’ Roll Revival Festival and played the same songs they would play at the Lyceum, albeit with shorter runtimes; intriguingly, his participation almost did not occur when, sure that a call from John Lennon asking him to perform with a new group must be a prank, he immediately hung up.

Taylor Swift’s New Single: Album (or Two) to Follow?

Fans are using the release of “This Love” (Taylor’s Version) and The Old Taylor Shop merchandise on her store, which is themed to “1989” and “Speak Now”, to speculate about the potential release of “1989” or “Speak Now” (Taylor’s Version). 

Coming Home to ‘Harry’s House’

I can’t wait to hear how Styles has grown in Harry’s House — the lyrics, sound and imagery to come will clue us into Styles’s personal journey, as well as help me reflect on my own.
