Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge recently showed his eccentric side when he revealed his firm belief in extraterrestrial life during an interview with Paper magazine. His primary reason for taking that stance? He encountered an alien during a recent camping trip to Area 51.
The 39-year-old explains that he awoke at 3am to voices and was unable to move his body. Some people like to call this “sleep paralysis,” but hey, aliens are a cool explanation too. He states:
“My whole body felt like it had static electricity, and I open my eyes and the [campfire] is still going, and there’s a conversation going on outside the tent,” DeLonge said. “It sounded like there were about 20 people there, talking. And instantly my mind goes, ‘OK, they’re at our campsite, they’re not here to hurt us, they’re talking about shit, but I can’t make out what they’re saying. But they’re working on something.’ Then I close my eyes and wake up, and the fire is out, and I have about three hours of lost time.”
DeLonge has been researching extraterrestrial life for the past 20 years, and has immersed himself in more than 200 books on the topic. He refers to it as “the biggest story of mankind,” and believes government authorities have kept tabs on him because of his studies.
He also claims that a fellow researcher has experienced similar phenomenon: “[He] was being awoken in the middle of the night with clicking and buzzing noises and falling on the ground vomiting, every morning at 4 a.m. I know now that those are artifacts from mind-control experiments, where the same technology that we use to find oil underground, we can zap somebody at the same frequency that the brain operates on, and it can cause some really horrific things to happen.”
Who knows what’s really going on here; maybe it really is alien takeovers, or maybe it’s just hardcore drug use. But either way, at least it’s not scientology he’s obsessed with, am I right?
