Deftones have held two benefit shows for Chi, on the 19th and the 20th at the Avalon in LA. They've been joined on stage by various people, from Tommy Lee, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, Cypress Hill, Greg Puciato of Dillinger Escape Plan, POD and so on. The above video had Tommy Lee as a second drummer and Mike Shinoda on the piano.

More info here. I wish i could have been there.

There's an auction for Chi at http://www.CharityBuzz.com/BenefitforChi set up by Deftones and featuring items donated by an array of Deftones’ friends including Metallica, Blink 182, HIM and System of a Down. Some of the highlights include:

-Flyaway to Helsinki, Finland to attend HIM’s sold-out New Year’s Eve show. Includes meet-and-greet with the band, round-trip flights, and hotel for two nights.
-A day in the studio with Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 to produce a track for your band
-Signed ESP guitar from Metallica
-John Dolmayan’s (System of a Down) personal Tama drum kit, autographed by John
-Signed gear from Deftones
-Signed Slayer motorcycle helmet autographed by members of Slayer
-Pair of three-day general admission and VIP passes to Coachella Festival 2010
-Autographed ESP guitar from My Chemical Romance

In other Chi news, he had an appointment at UC and he's in the system now. Which means he is accepted for treatment and rehab by a hospital, which means he IS getting better and not considered a lost case. Thank God. One step at a time Chi, you can do it.

One love for Chi.

“You know how it is,” Doc Daneeka had wheedled, with a sly, conspiratorial wink. “Why take chances when I don’t have to?”

“Sure,” Yossarian agreed.

“What difference does it make to anyone of I’m in the plane or not?”

“No difference.”

“Sure, that’s what I mean,” Doc Daneeka said. “A little grease is what makes this world go round. One hand washes the other. Know what I mean? You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.”

Yossarian knew what he meant.

“That’s not what I meant,” Doc Daneeka said as Yossarian began scratching his back. “I’m talking about cooperation. Favors. You do a favor for me, I’ll do one for you. Get it?”

“Do one for me,” Yossarian requested.

“Not a chance,” Doc Daneeka answered.

Beautifully said

Cautionary Tales

I Google Earth-ed my house in New York... it made me sad.

I refuse to eulogize my father. To eulogize him is to admit he is gone. My father is not dead. Kaito Nakamura taught me right from wrong, what it means to be a hero… So long as the lessons live on through me, he will never die. My father taught me to understand that certain things are in God’s hands. But for everything else… God has given us the gift of choice. My father gave me the tools to fight the battles ahead. Every hand I extend in kindness is his hand. And every blow that I strike for justice is his fist. So long as the lessons he taught stay with me, and so long as he lives on in my heart, then my father is never truly dead.

-Hiro Nakamura

A Claudio would be nice.

you were once my one companion
you were all that mattered
you were once a friend and father
then my world was shattered
wishing you were somehow here again
wishing you were somehow near
sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed
somehow you would be here
wishing I could hear your voice again
knowing that I never would
dreaming of you won't help me to do
all that you dreamed I could
