If you know of Tom DeLonge, you know that he was part of the legendary rock band Blink-182. You know that he’s broken the band apart a couple times, and has been in other groups such as Box Car Racer, and since 2010, Angels And Airwaves. What you might also be fond of, is his obsession of extraterrestrial life.
DeLonge has more often than not been a hot take in the news for this interest he has in alien life. Weird? Yes. But, who hasn’t thought of these things before? I used to want to be an astronaut and absolutely loved aliens and space. Tom is bringing our childhood thought-process into adulthood, and making some kind of conversation with it.
Blink-182 literally produced a song titled “Aliens Exist” back in 2005 written by DeLonge.
“What if people knew that these were real
I’d leave my closet door open all night
I know the CIA would say
What you hear is all hearsay
I wish someone would tell me what was right” – Aliens Exist, Blink-182
DeLonge has always brought a type of style to his music that really makes you feel a sensation as if you were actually flying in a sense. A type of feeling as if you are in a spaceship or somewhere that isn’t Earth. The continuous strum-pattern that he brought to many of songs (which people often criticize his groups for sounding the same with most songs) gives this effect. If you listen to AVA’s (Angels and Airwaves) first album “We Don’t Need To Whisper,” you can hear just that in 9 of the 10 total tracks.
Oh, and every cover-art for AVA displays a space-styled scene. Just in case you were wondering. Here’s a sample:
It is what has been in the news recently about the artist, though, that has supports like myself saying “wow, this guy really never stops.” But, this is why we, or at least I, admire the guy. He never stops what he loves. According to RollingStone, and a WikiLeakes reveal, DeLonge legitimately emailed Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton’s chairman John Podesta about extraterrestrial lifeforms.
In the Podesta emails leaked by Wikileaks, DeLonge reached out to Clinton’s campaign chairman in an effort to set up a Washington, D.C. meeting between them and two people “in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to Classified Science and DOD topics. Other words, these are A-Level officials,” DeLonge wrote back in October 2015. “Podesta, who also served as senior advisor to President Barack Obama, expressed disappointment in February 2015 that his time in the White House didn’t result in the revelation of the existence of UFOs. ‘Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere, Podesta tweeted.’
In short, DeLonge has put away a lot in his life in order to expand his knowledge and desire to uncover truths about such life. He has broken the infamous Blink-182 up multiple times for reasons pertaining to extraterrestrial discovery, with the last break-up being the absolute end.
Again, I’ve always admired this guy for going against thing sin order to prove what he believes is right and what the public should be allowed to know. In fact, to end this, he actually came to an agreement with Clinton that she will declassify all documents pertaining to extraterrestrials if elected president.
Crazy stuff for most. “The usual,” for Tom DeLonge.
“What seems like ridiculous subject matter to most, is of massive importance to admirable National Security Leadership. It’s easy to poke fun about the topic from an armchair, but unless you’re invited to the meetings I have been a part of, then…no more laughing. Big things are coming. Project is still on, believe it or not, things just got bigger.” – Tom Delonge, RollingStone
