Blink-182 performed their song, “Anthem Part 3,” at a Denny’s diner in Long Beach, California. The dinner crowd went nuts as the band broke into the song. You can check out a snippet of it on the band’s Twitter / X feed.
Top 10 of this week’s Billboard 200 album chart, with Blink-182’s One More Time entering at number-one with Blink racking up 101,000 of its 125,000 total units via traditional sales (downloads, CDs and LPs) rather than streams.

Disney released an official first look at its live-action “Snow White” remake with Rachel Zegler. If you recall, when Disney first announced the remake, Peter Dinklage complained, because he felt the story’s depiction of little people was “backwards”.

They’re CGI – and there’s no word if that’s the final or not. They just delayed the movie by a year . . . until March of 2025. So they have time to change it if they want to – LINK

She explains that she fell asleep in a friend’s car after a dance rehearsal in California… when she heard a ‘high pitched sound’. Then, she looked out the window and saw ‘two or three triangular-shaped heads’.

And they were droning…” – LINK
