A hater wrote to Blink-182 singer/guitarist Matt Skiba on Instagram last week: “ur gay.”
Skiba responded, “Thanks for taking time out of what must be a very busy schedule for little old me. Is being gay a bad thing? I don’t understand but again, thank you.
I’m sure you’re a very happy and kind/compassionate person. Smart too. Probably immensely satisfied and successful in your life. I’m sure your parents didn’t mean it when they told you that you were an accident.”
Former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge claimed in a recent Mother Jones interview that he is planning a $200 million dollar film that will ‘entertain and educate the public’ regarding his alien research, and compared it to Star Wars and Marvel films.
“I think [the government is] using me, absolutely, because I can help. But I don’t think they’re using me for any kind of misinformation, absolutely not, and I’ll tell you why. It took me a year to reach three groups of people in various stovepipes of the government…that were in charge of this subject matter, not only in terms of engineering, but in terms of intelligence and military. They all said the exact same thing, the exact same story, and that’s what’s so important about what I’m doing with the Sekret Machines franchise. The reality is if the president and Congress aren’t going to have congressional hearings and have an open statement, then the next best thing is a $100 million movie with a $100 million in marketing, with an international release, and having that happen every couple of years with nonfiction books and documentaries. Then you kind of get an awareness going, a conversation going. That’s what I’m doing.”
He added, “It will be multiple nonfiction books, multiple historical fiction novels, multiple major feature films, and multiple documentaries. That’s the goal. It will take us many years to do all that, but it’s something or multiple things happening every year in regards to that architecture. Think of it like the way they do Star Wars or Marvel films. It’s an entertain-and-educate model.”
