Chi’s Spirit

1

I read in Chi’s personal liner notes on ‘Adrenaline’ that the first person he thanked was – “The Almighty Spirit That Moves Through All Things”. I also read Chi’s comments about that: Chi: “A guy named Tom Brown Jr. studied under an Apache elder. instead of categorizing under one God-head, he saw that everyone was […]

Greg Moreno

Did you ever see the ‘Felicity’ show? There’s a character on this show called Sean. His real name is Greg Grunberg, and let me tell you that he looks just like Chino, specially his eyes and mouth.  Greg also plays a role in the movie ‘Hollow Man’.  I guess if I made a defmorphation of […]

Child's nasal aspirator isolated on a white background

The object on the Deftones’ first album – Adrenaline – ain’t a kid’s top, like it appears to be. That is an aspirator, used for babies when they have mucous in their lungs or nose since they cannot blow it out themselves. You squeeze the hollow air filled ball and place it into their nose […]

Chino Nosedive

1

You can’t pick your fans, and you can’t pick your fans’ noses. But, as Chino Moreno learned on June, 20th 1998 (his birthday) during a show at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, Ca., occasionally, if the timing’s right, a fan can pick your nose. It seems when Moreno dove headfirst into the crowd during the […]

DefMorphation

Morphation is the technology that some directors use on the making of movies or some other kind of audiovisual work. It became famous on the unforgettable Michael Jackson’s “Black and White” video.

Chino played drums

Yes! Chino played drums when he was invited by Grady Avenell in a Will Haven concert. Who saw this rare moment said that he really did a good job. Rhythm took possession of him since he was a little kid. At age 12, Chino traded some of his skates for some funky latin-percussion-type drums, and […]

Here’s a funny comparison between Chi Cheng and Tomb Raider’s heroin Lara Croft…

Deftones: ‘Living in me is so poor’

1

As so many bands out there, the Deftones are no exception. They’ve been robbed several times. Once was on the “Around the fur” European Tour while the band was playing a gig in Berlin (Germany), thieves pillaged the group’s tour van making off with camera equipment and CDs. The most valuable were video tapes containing […]

Defgame ends with ‘Elite’

1

For the ones that didn’t reach the end of the pac-man style game that came with the “White Pony” enhanced cd, I tell you if you end the game you can hear an extra track, that is “Elite”, played on a Deftones’ rehearsal. It’s not like the movie that came with the cd, but it […]
