If you crunch up nacho cheese dorritos, then crunch up ranch dorritos and put them in a microwave safe bowl, and then stick it in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then take the the dorritos and sprinkle them on top of spaghetti, you get warm dorritos on spaghetti.

Do we each get our own bag of Doritos, or does everyone have to share a giant one? Original or Ranch? Snack size, or Sam's Club size?

Man I really enjoy the chili peppers, but i would agree that their last two albums just weren't the same as the old chili peppers stuff i wish they would play some stuff from uplift, and freaky style. Hopefully being an older crowd they will play more old stuff they don't need to appeal to the junior high crowd.

Isn't it true? I think that is my main problem with any sort of Doritos. Especially when I am in a place where brushing my teeth is not an option, but eating Doritos is an option. And that's usually a place where I'll be talking with people... And I'll forget my Orbit gum.

jezus.. this is funny.. Maybe Coachella could cancel the Chili Pepper's, use the money to buy a boat load of dorrito's. Then they could hand them out during the evening when the Chili's are supposed to be playing.. I (as well as a lot of other people) would get more use out of a bag of dorritos then watching the Chili Peppers hash it out...yawnnnnn. Actually I would trade in the lead singer for 3 chips.. and then let the other band members jam out..

RHCP, despite whatever quality of their recordings, are always good live. Frusciante is a guitar god, and Flea is still one of the best bassists in modern music today.So, yeah. RHCP over a bag of Doritos.

However, you make that a bag of White Cheddar Natural Cheetos.... That makes it a tough call.

I believe that PF can help us solve this. does pepsi have vendor rights with GV? because if they do, there'll be doritos for sale inside the festival, meaning you don't have to choose. both at the same time. I myself have actually eaten doritos during the opening band at an RHCP concert. I didn't wanna drown out the chilis with my crunching.

I doubt it. I imagine if they had some kind of deal with Pepsi, we'd see logos everywhere, and they would sell that foul-tasting Aquafina instead of the good spring water.

I'd kill for some 4-cheese Doritos (actually six cheese). R.I.P. :(

I loved their set. The only complaint is that some of the song choices were questionable. For example, they played "Throw Away Your Television," "Otherside," and a couple weird songs that Flea and John sang. I would have rather had them play a few more tracks from Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Mother's Milk. Had they played "Stone Cold Bush," it would have been the happiest night of my life.

However, their jams were incredible. They opened the set with a five minute jam session between Flea and Frusciante, with John playing these ridiculously cool guitar riffs. It made me wish they would do an album like that, instead of always wanting to write 5 minute pop songs these days. Just a jam band type of concept album. It would be amazing.

gratytrainridesagain
01-24-2008, 01:19 PM
I actually wouldn't be opposed to that and I hate jam bands but I've seen vids of Flea and John it is pretty great. They won't do that though they just need to kick Keidis and become a instrumental band like explosions. I actually would have liked to seen Otherside though my one friend said that was the highlight for him mainly based on it was unexpected.

Sometimes I don't change the station when a chili peppers song comes on. I might even hum a long for 15 seconrds or so.

Doritos have upped their game in recent years. Can the Peppers match their effort?

The amount of shit going around about "Phoenix as a headliner" is hilarious when you consider that these guys are closing the whole thing.

Actually I've been relistening to their stuff and I have two comments:

Stadium Arcadium is not as bad as it's made out to be.

and One Hot Minute is pretty underrated.

is that an immortal technique reference, or is it found somewhere else as well?

I was thinking about where I've heard it before.

um, none of Bruno Mars' band had wires either. I just assumed the whole setup was wireless. they can do that these days you know.

It also seemed to me that at the beginning, Mars was drum-syncing. The sounds coming out didnt' seem like they were being made by what he was doing with the sticks. it may have just been an a/v timing issue ... but how in hell do you get that drum sound 'live' esp when the drums are being pushed across a football field?

I'm sure Supre or Spooks or someone has eight million different Atoms for Peace photos we could compare as well.

Flea:

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.
We 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.

Great communication. I'm changing my vote.
