Ex-blink-182 man Tom DeLonge is making sure the truth of UFOs gets out there. And people are taking him seriously.

Ever since he left blink-182, Tom DeLonge has thrown himself into exposing the existence of aliens, the use of extra-terrestrial technology (look up “zero point energy” if you want to head down a very deep rabbit hole) and the vast government conspiracy to cover everything up.

Yawn. Another tinfoil hat UFO kook, right? No. People are paying attention. Close attention.

Check out this post in the Washington Post from yesterday (May 30).

At the turn of the millennium, Blink-182 was everywhere. On the cover of the pop-punk band’s smash album, “Enema of the State,” a busty nurse with a lustful grin snapped on a latex glove. At MTV beach concerts, sunburned masses moshed to the No. 1 hit “All the Small Things.” But frontman Tom DeLonge — the one with the angsty, adolescent singing voice — had been nurturing an offstage hobby that was decidedly out of the mainstream.

With his first record-deal payout as a fledgling teenage rock star, DeLonge had bought a computer to research the prospect of intelligent life beyond Earth. And after Blink-182 made him a fortune, he further indulged his fascination with the paranormal.

He co-wrote a 700-page novel about UFOs.

He brainstormed a film about skateboarders who become paranormal detectives.

He produced websites buzzing with stories about Bigfoot and disintegrating mummies.

Now in his early 40s, with his music career cooled but his financial resources apparently intact, DeLonge has channeled those bizarre passions into his next act.

You’ve seen it without knowing it. Remember that wild news in December about a secret Pentagon UFO program? And those grainy military videos showing radar images of unexplained phenomena — white, Tic-Tac-shaped objects that appear to fly at remarkable speeds, at impossible angles, without wings or exhaust?

Tom DeLonge helped ring the alarm about those things, as part of his new business venture: To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science. For his advisory board, DeLonge recruited physicists, aerospace experts and former Department of Defense officials, who have been talking publicly about UFOs and arguing that the government has failed to fully investigate them.

Keep reading. Tom has turned into a real-life Fox Mulder.

  • People, celebrities, government whistleblowers,authors, and film-makers, have been releasing UFO related stuff since the early 90s. This is nothing new. The day they have Global Disclosure–a press conference on CNN with an ET present, along with UFOs hovering over a few major cities–that’s when people will actually start caring.
