    lindsey graham throws bricks at runaway truck tires 

    i.chzbgr

    and wants us to start throwing them again at Iraq.

    why? well because for the first time ever there’s unrest in the middle east and Graham feels left out.

    “Iraq and Syria are going to be the staging ground for the next 9/11 if we don’t do something about it,” the senator from South Carolina squealed during CNN’s morning show today.

    i really wish some reporters would ask him where the staging grounds for the first 9/11 were.

    the rain is coming down and its nice because its rare 

    10168889_10152302037088057_1358011464_n

    its also cold and windy and not at all like april in LA its more like december but whatevs

    it’ll be over by sunrise.

    it’s 1:22am and this pretty girl was worrying about life the universe and everything

    10150002_10152302045543057_390509881_ncosmos was on and she was all, wow if the universe is really that big then we are seriously worthless.

    if we are a speck of dust on a speck of dust surrounded by millions of other specks

    in world of specks, then who cares?

    the rain hadn’t come down yet but it was fixin to.

    i said theres a few things we can do with this information: we can let it bum us out

    or we can say wow out of all of those specks, we’re the only ones

    with pants.

    we’re the only ones with taco bell.

    which means, we might be the only one that God really does pay attention to.

    i said, i bet there are thousands of planets that God really digs for one reason or another

    like maybe one is really pretty or one is really smart

    but computers were really just starting to take off in the 80s and boom ten years later so many people had the internet

    thats almost as smart as pants.

    theres a leak by my fridge and when it rains i have to make sure the bucket it under the leak.

    i have a little flashlight back there just for nights like these where ive gotta adjust the bucket

    because its near the fridge it means its also near the freezer

    so i came back with two bowls of ice cream.

    and a can of whipped cream.

    fuckers on planet zip aint made no whipped cream outta a can, i said.

    and we turned off cosmos for the night.

    flea explains why he was playing guitar hero at the super bowl 

    Flea-unplugged-halftime-final

    Dear everybody,

    When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song Give It Away at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums, and guitar would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL’s stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers stance on any sort of miming has been that we will absolutely not do it. The last time we did it (or tried to) was in the late 80′s, we were thrown off of ‘The Top Of the Pops’ television program in the U.K. during rehearsals because we refused to mime properly, I played bass with my shoe, John played guitar atop Anthony’s shoulders, and we basically had a wrestling match onstage, making a mockery of the idea that it was a real live performance.

    We mimed on one or two weird MTV shows before that and it always was a drag. We take our music playing seriously, it is a sacred thing for us, and anyone who has ever seen us in concert (like the night before the Super Bowl at the Barclays Center), knows that we play from our heart, we improvise spontaneously, take musical risks, and sweat blood at every show. We have been on the road for 31 years doing it.

    So, when this Super Bowl gig concept came up, there was a lot of confusion amongst us as whether or not we should do it, but we eventually decided, it was a surreal-like, once in a life time crazy thing to do and we would just have fun and do it. We had given this a lot of thought before agreeing to do it, and besides many a long conversation amongst ourselves, I spoke with many musician friends for whom I have the utmost respect, and they all said they would do it if asked, that it was a wild trippy thing to do, what the hell.

    Plus, we the RHCP all love football too and that played a big part in our decision. We decided that, with Anthony singing live, that we could still bring the spirit and freedom of what we do into the performance, and of course we played every note in the recording specially for the gig. I met and spoke with Bruno, who was a beautiful dude, a real talented musician, and we worked out something that seemed like it would be fun.

    bruno-mars-red-hot-chili-peppers-super-bowlWe recorded a track for the day, just banged one out from our hearts that was very like in spirit to the versions we have been playing live the last few years with our beloved Josh on guitar.

    For the actual performance, Josh, Chad, and I were playing along with the pre recorded track so there was no need to plug in our guitars, so we did not. Could we have plugged them in and avoided bumming people out who have expressed disappointment that the instrumental track was pre recorded? Of course easily we could have and this would be a non-issue. We thought it better to not pretend. It seemed like the realest thing to do in the circumstance. It was like making a music video in front of a gazillion people, except with live vocals, and only one chance to rock it. Our only thought was to bring the spirit of who we are to the people.

    I am grateful to the NFL for having us. And I am grateful to Bruno, who is a super talented young man for inviting us to be a part of his gig. I would do it all the same way again.

    We, as a band, aspire to grow as musicians and songwriters, and to continue to play our guts out live onstage for anyone who wants to get their brains blown out.

    Sincerely,
    Flea
