    Tom DeLonge as announced Sekret Machines: Book 2: A Fire Within. It’ll be out on September 18th and pre-orders are now up. The plot synopsis of this “novel based on actual events” is as follows:

    A Fire Within continues the story of heiress Jennifer Quinn, journalist Timika Mars, pilot Alan Young and ex-Marine Barry Regis – four people bonded by the incidents they’ve witnessed and who are being hunted by agents of a wealthy corporate cabal desperate for unimaginable power and possessed of extraordinary abilities they don’t understand, much less control. Now the quartet is on a mission of their own: as Alan and Barry test the limits of their strange gifts inside the military complex known as Dreamland, Jennifer and Timika begin a quest to locate an ancient tablet that may hold the answers to humanity’s greatest question: Are we alone in the universe?”

    This reads like you're flipping through the TV and happen upon some mid-season episode for some show you've never seen before: "Tom and Bret have a disagreement; Kayla and Diego take risks; Geraldo discovers a shocking secret."

    It's a super secret spelling that only blink-182 frontmen get to use.

    This is the best Tom-related thread on here in a while. Usually people are just a tad too mean, but all of this is absolutely on point.

    Would it still be relevant to make a reference to Modlife and Vampire Weekend here?

    I'm not quite sure of what happened exactly, especially since it happened like eight years ago, but I recall the guys being incredibly weirded out by his pitch of Modlife to them.

    Edit: Turns out it was very Tom Delonge-esque after all.

    Wow. I tend to feel bad for the guy when everyone piles on, but this just makes you feel pretty embarrassed for him even through space and time.
