Tom DeLonge: Fart Rocker Turned UFO Expert

+

You all remember Blink-182 right? They had a bunch of hit songs in the late-’90s and into the 2000s about girls not liking them, girls not liking them, being immature, and girls (not liking them). They sold millions and have mostly been off the radar until earlier this year when they all started beefing with each other, causing drummer Travis Barker and bassist/singer Mark Hoppus throwing odd-bro-out Tom DeLonge under the bus for the band’s inactivity.

Well, who doesn’t like a conspiracy? Maybe it’s just odd timing, but with Obama adviser John Podesta’s recent comments about UFOs and DeLonge’s departure from Blink, perhaps it’s all part of a bigger plot. What? Well, DeLonge recently spoke to Paper Mag, but not about Barker and Hoppus. Nah man, he broke down his knowledge of aliens and shit, including his phone being tapped by the feds.

Makes sense to me. Blink did have a song called “Aliens Exist” and DeLonge is a 9/11 Truther, so yeah. The other Blinkers probably knew the truth was about to come out and needed to distance themselves from DeLonge, possibly out of fear or jealous, man. Before you click on the link, just know that DeLonge has TWO decades of UFO experience under his belt, including a camping trip to Area 51 where some alien’s showed up and filled him with electricity.

Anyway, it’s like a trillion words and DeLonge is quite earnest about it all, but this part is the legit best, especially if you’re too lazy to read the whole thing or just want something to quote when making fun of him in social media:

You’ve had your phone tapped?

“Yeah, yeah I did. For quite some time. Years ago, there was somebody who was gathering 150 hours of top secret testimony specifically for Congressional hearings on government projects and the US secret space program. People from NASA, Rome, the Vatican, you name it, they’re all on there. The top 36 hours that summarized the best parts of all of that footage, I had it hidden in my house for a period of time, and during that time I was flying this person out along with somebody that was Wernher von Braun‘s right-hand assistant. Wernher von Braun was a Nazi scientist that we brought over to build our Apollo rockets that got us to the moon, and on his deathbed he told this person a bunch of stuff, and I was flying them out to Los Angeles and we were taking certain meetings. At that time a lot of weird stuff started happening.”

Right on.
