      BLOG — blink-182



      When the blink-182 tour came to Los Angeles on Friday 09/30 and Saturday 10/01, we wanted to do something special. We called up Mark Trombino who runs the best donut shop in town DONUT FRIEND (some of you may recognize the name from blink-182's early Dude Ranch album as their producer). We asked Mark if he could come up with a signature donut for us, something cool for the LA Forum shows. A true limited edition as only 50 would be made each day. Mark, not missing a beat, said "let's do a Hi My Name Is BisMARK"

      For those of you not well-versed in all things donut, a bismark or also known as a Berliner Pfannkuchen (Berliner for short) is a traditional German pastry similar to a donut with no central hole, made from sweet yeast dough fried in oil, with a marmalade or jam filling and usually icing, powdered sugar or conventional sugar on top. They are sometimes made with chocolate, champagne, custard, mocha filling, or with no filling at all. Our exclusive HI My Name Is Bismark would be made with Vanilla or Carmel glaze and a light vanilla custard filling. 

      The first person to try one of our bisMARKs.

      Now, if you purchased a bisMARK, and posted a picture of it to Instagram with the tags #donutfriend and #octopusdonut, you were automatically entered into a drawing for a Joe Ledbetter complete skateboard.

      The big prize for those that entered, was a signed Joe Ledbetter skateboard, with all the stuff, provided by our friends over at Pig Wheels and Bro Style

      And the winner is.....

      Eddie email customerservice@himynameismark.com with your details on how we get you your prize. Congrats! and thanks to everyone that came out to Donut Friend!

      The BLINK-182 Summer Tour - UPDATE

      The BLINK-182 Summer Tour - UPDATE

      We figured it's just past the halfway point in the blink-182 North American summer tour, and time for another update. This is one tour you do not want to miss. From the moment DJ Spider opens the doors to the final note of the blink set, this tour will more than exceed all your greatest expectations. And trust us, as we've seen pretty much every blink tour since they were riding in vans with boys.

      We must thank @justwilliet (instagram) for the insane pictures you see below.

      The BLINK-182 Summer Tour - 2016

      The BLINK-182 Summer Tour - 2016

      Before the tour, the band held a week of production rehearsals on a soundstage in Los Angeles. This provided an opportunity to play through the set in its entirety before taking the tour out across the US and Canada. The lights, the pyro, the fireworks, all of it done everyday for a week to work out any last-minute changes and to finesse the final set list.

      A peek into the rehearsals:


      And now, onto the show...

      Making of the Video "Bored to Death"

      We take you behind-the-scenes, the making of blink-182's "Bored to Death" music video. Now we can't give too much away, so we'll only be publishing photos from the "performance" part of the video shoot.  Filmed at the Las Globos club in Silverlake (where the term "hipster" was born), a suburb of Los Angeles.

      And now onto the photos.

      HMNIM PODCAST - episode 7: Call Me Crum

      Lucky episode number seven. We go deep with artist Greg "Craola" Simkins, from the gritty back streets of LA to fine art galleries. He tells you how he did it, spoiler alert, it wasn't easy. Midway through the podcast, we surprise Mark with a one-of-a-kind gift that will blow your mind. We nerd out in great detail on how one of Mark's guitars gets built from the ground up.
