Got mine today, is the record mat a standard thing that came with all of them? I got the record, 2 stickers and the record mat.

Yep! MrTSurt, who pretty much oversees blinks merch, got those made and added as a nice little extra for all the deluxe orders from blinks website. 4 different colored record mats to match whatever color you bought

Slightly disappointed, realized all 4 of my pop-up sleeves had seam splits on the top :-/ I know it happens but I swear it has something to do with the sleeves they use because all my original CA sleeves had the same problem.

So I posted pics of mine last night when it came in and MrTSurt posted saying the golds are being shipped out separately.

So you're saying there's a chance...

So if anyone has USPS tracking notifications set up, it should be pretty obvious if they're getting a gold because tracking notifications will show up for a package they didn't order from CA, right? Lol.

Does anyone else find this entire record completely underwhelming? I just can't get into it more than a song or two at a time since the majority of the tracks, to me, sound the same. 

yes. this album is very whatever to me.

 

idk if I grew up, not into skiba, or its just not good. still trying to decide.

Good Ol Days, Last Train Home, and 6/8 are the best on it for me. Other than those it's a skip. Except for Hey I'm Sorry which I still consider part of the original. 

 

Fingers crossed for the gold. I variant collect blink so I guess I'll pay a price for it either way. 

 

I have a MTS enema misprint /25 that I'd trade for it if anyone gets it. Big deal.

My favorite song from the entire OG+deluxe is still Hey, I'm Sorry. I also like Bottom of the Ocean and Last Train Home. 6/8 is ok I guess. I wouldn't mind if I never heard Good Old Days or Don't Mean Anything ever again.

I had been curious as to why they didn't just release a new album as opposed to a deluxe ed.  If they released the second disc as a new album it'd get poor ratings, but as b-sides they're enjoyable.  

 

I still miss Tom...

(I think it was) Mark said that they still were contracted to promote California for another year or so, and this was there way around it. Initially I was upset that I had to rebuy the album to get the new songs, but my new copy seems to be less flimsy/better quality than the initial release.

Not super relevant to specifically california, but the blink box set is super cheap on Amazon right now. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M984V1H/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If you click on "New From" it's about $23 plus shipping

That seems absurdly cheap. Went for it.
