If you know me, you know I'm a huge fan of blink 182 and Mark Hoppus. I also really enjoy helping out people whenever I can. So a few weeks ago, when Mark Hoppus started putting blink 182 paraphernalia up on ebay to raise money for the Red Cross efforts in Japan, I was like, "I'm in."
I bid on and eventually won the orange shirt he wore in the music video for "Dammit." As seen in the video below:
Naturally, I was excited enough by that. "Dammit" was the first song I heard by blink way back in the day, and I still think it's a fun song.
The shirt came today, and it's awesome, and I'm excited. But along with the shirt, there were a couple blink 182 stickers, and a hand written letter from Mark Hoppus.
Since I saw it, I have shouted "It's the coolest thing ever!" no less than 15 times, because it is in fact, the coolest thing ever.
