    Tom, forget Blink and do a BCR reunion.

    That would require a) Tom committing to something other than alien conspiracy theories and b) That Travis actually devote some time to BCR. I'm not sure which of those is more unlikely.

    I wish I could say something but silence is fine.

    Well, he always had a sweet spot for conspiracies: in BCR's Watch The World he sang: "I saw Virginia get rid of Langley / and its secrets too". But yeah the whole thing is unlikely.
    That was a great album, though. It listened to it today.

    a) He's still released AVA material every year. He's capable of a little reunion show or quick EP if he wants it (or needs money). Even with other current commitments, the guy is still a musician at heart.
    b) Travis devotes his time to anything if he cares about it. If he can find time for Transplants or solo material, he can probably devote some time with Tom, considering they're still friends and have worked together for two decades.

    But yeah, it is obviously wishful thinking.

    "Material" is a loose term. I don't consider a weird video documentary to be particularly indicative of a level of commitment to a band. A band is based on music, and the discography hasn't been consistent:
    Are you sure Travis and Tom are still friends? Travis is an easygoing guy, but I wonder if Tom is butthurt that he supported adding Matt to blink-182 and kicking Tom out. We can't trust a word Tom says about this since he's publicly said that he could rejoin blink any time he wanted to.

    That's not the whole musical discography though. That's ignoring the EPs like Chasing Shadows (2016), ...Of Nightmares (2015) both of which contain actual songs, and can count Stomping the Phantom Break Pedal (2013) too. That's consistent music every year. Which is good commitment considering he had other projects, ie Blink, and all his other endeavours.

    Tom and Travis still talk. There's plenty of public Twitter and Instagram communication and in interviews they both say they still talk. Travis said there was "no bad blood", if I remember correctly. So I presume their friends but you're right, maybe that's a public charade to cool Tom off as they do Blink.

    But yeah, he may be a bit butthurt provided he isn't allowed back in the band when he proclaims to be ready. I feel like they will reunite but I hope he moves on because him and Mark would have to force chemistry.
