Former Blink 182 guitarist Tom DeLonge has been named UFO Researcher Of The Year at the 2017 International UFO Congress. He also wins an award from me for making that a sentence I got to write.

DeLonge’s interest in UFOs is no secret, of course. And the award was given largely based on information pulled from leaked emails between him and Hillary Clinton advisor John Podesta, published in a wider dump of hacked Clinton emails last October.

The musician was not able to attend the International UFO Congress in Arizona, but accepted the award via a video message, in which he said: “I wanna say thank you for acknowledging some of the hard work I’ve been putting into some subject matter that concerns us all, and that you’re passionate about just like I … My job has only just begun on this subject matter, and there’s some big shit planned. I’m excited about it. Just remember, that whatever happens in the civilian world, it’s game on”.

He also said that he’ll be making an announcement in “the next 60ish days” that might not look like much at the time, but that other UFO researchers should take a good look at because it’s actually dead big.
