To dust, in fire, into ruins, drowned, Keep it the way you want, Hard to stand on a slope so slant, Every good displayed as a taunt, Like a tree shedding in spring, Lost charm of a diamond ring, A road going from heaven to hell, Desert engulfing a drying well, Should I explain you […]

Things haven’t quite been the same in Blink-182 without Tom DeLonge. Since he left in 2015, the band pulled Matt Skiba in as a replacement, released the fun but over-produced California, and have shared new song “Blame It on My Youth” from an upcoming album due later this year. Meanwhile, DeLonge has been relaunching Angels & Airwaves and looking for aliens. When the split happened in 2015, it seemed like things had soured to a point of possible no return. DeLonge broke the news over email through his manager. Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker said DeLonge was “disrespectful and ungrateful” for backing out of prior commitments to record a new album. In a new interview with San Diego radio station 91X, DeLonge confirmed not just that he wants to rejoin Blink-182, but that he has discussed doing so with Hoppus and Barker, both of whom are on board. You know, the much-needed confirmation that it’s not just a one-sided idea. (Read: The 100 Best Pop Punk Bands) “For me, it’s funny. When I was starting all this stuff, and working with people in the government, I couldn’t tell those guys,” DeLonge said. “So they didn’t know, and that’s one of the reasons that they got so upset I think. They were, like, wanting to go and record and I was just like, ‘…Not right now. I’m doing something.’ This was when the whole meltdown happened, like ‘Tom quit!’” He went on to explain that their creative differences don’t stop them from cheering one another on. “There’s creative differences in what I do, and what my brothers in Blink do,” he added. “We like different things, and we like different music – but we’re still good friends and we still support each other.” The biggest quote came shortly after, though, where he confirms everybody is on board for the reunion. “It hit the press last week I think that yes, everybody, I will play with Blink again,” he noted. “That’s the whole plan. I talk to Travis all the time, and I talked to Mark just the other day and we’re always discussing what makes sense and when.” Let’s hope they stay together for the kids for real this time. See the full interview below. No details of when or how this reunion will shape up are available quite yet. That said, a fan asked Hoppus if the band would consider doing a reunion concert for the live album The Mark, Tom and Travis Show, complete with the iconic jokes and stage banter. His response? “That’s a fantastic idea.” Meanwhile, the Tom-free version of Blink-182 are going on tour this summer. The co-headlining tour with Lil Wayne sees them on the road for nearly six months straight. If you’re interested in going, check out the full list of tour dates and grab a ticket. If you’re lucky, maybe they will play Enema of the State in full like they did this past April.

Loveland Reporter-Herald
Charlie Nash, chaplain of the Associated Veterans of Loveland, salutes the flag as the Junior ROTC color guard from Thompson Valley High School prepares to raise it during the 2017 Memorial Day ceremony at Loveland Burial Park. From left they are Sean Bills, Alex Coleman, Joseph Itzen and (not shown) Abigayle Wing. Monday is Memorial Day and an annual ceremony at Loveland Burial Park is one of several  planned Loveland events that will honor those who died serving in the U.S. military. The annual ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. with a presentation of the colors by members of the Thompson Valley ROTC program. That presentation will be followed a ceremony with the reading of the names of members of the two organizations that make up of the Associated Veterans of Loveland, American Legion Post 15 and VFW Post 41, that have died since last Memorial Day. Members of those organizations will ring a bell and add a flag to a small wreath in honor of each name. The guest speaker at the ceremony will be retired Master Sgt. Chris Lewis, who will give remarks discussing what Memorial Day means to him. The program will conclude with a 21-gun salute. Prior to the ceremony, members of three Loveland Boy Scout troops will arrive at the burial park to put up 90 20-foot high American flags. “That’s something that’s been a tradition for many years,” said Bart Bartholomew, a former commander of American Legion Post 15. “It’s awesome to see those flags put up by those boys.” The ceremony will likely last around 25 minutes. Loveland Burial Park is located at 1702 N.
