First off, I think it important to thank all of you, our amazing supportive fans, for the love and support you have shown us for the past, well fuck...almost twenty years. After 246 shows played in support of Saturday Night Wrist-We took a month off and are now back in our studio writing for what we can only hope will be another great record. I can tell you nothing about it other than we are all very excited and working at a much more efficient pace. Things have been both mellow and exciting at home for me here in Sacto. I’ve been spending most of my time at home with the wife and kid. We also have a chocolate lab pup who has been shitting and pissing all over my new house. She hears the words “fuck” and “no” so much, I’m pretty sure she thinks “fuckno” is her name. My wife got a cool gig modeling for a really cool shop we go to in Sac called The United States Store. If you are curious to see how hot my wife is, you can go online at their website. I also recently got published in the second Revolution On Canvas books...so-if you’re curious about what a miserable prick I can be when I write, check it out. I will also start posting up poems if you’re at all interested. Otherwise, if you feel so inclined you can write me a semi descent question and there’s a 4% probability that I will reply. Anyhow, I’m cooking Chinese for the woman and must go…Thank you again!

Hello again folks.
Thank you all for responding to my stupid rants. I've read all of your blogs and here’s what I gotta say.
First off, Dear Juan – I’m truly sorry that we've become such big pussies and suck now. I’m fairly certain we are only going to suck worse as time progresses so I would recommend you go and buy a Hinder album or something and give up on us. I hear they’re some sorta bad boys of rock, or somethin'. Anyhow, best to jump from this sinking ship while you can.
As for the Buddhists in Burma, like so many other oppressive situations, I am appalled and disgusted by it. I encourage people to write, yell, and scream for change if you feel the same.
This will probably be the one and only time I commend our no talent ass clown of a President, but thank you for recognizing the Dali Lama at the cost of relations with the Chinese. I'm pretty conflicted being both a Buddhist and Chinese.
My wife is at UnitedStateonline.com. It’s a great place run by great people.
Though I am an English major, I spell like shit and after watching T.V., no I am not smarter than a fifth grader. But, yes, I would love to drag Jeff Foxworthy’s body from my Jeep Wagoner.
I think the Radiohead idea is very innovative and inspirational, but we are still under contract with Warner Brothers. So far I have been very happy with the relationship we share.
What inspires me? Cleaning up my 3 dog's shit and waiting in line at Wal Mart to spend copious amounts of money on animal shit.
I can only remember the last one of horror movies. Well...my woman and I are huge horror movie fanatics. Obviously I must list The Exorcist as the scariest of all time, but that’s cause I’m old. I am really looking forward to 30 Days of Night, loved the graphic novel.
All right, I thank you all and will now actually go and devote some time writing music. I have been writing on guitar and really suck. Steph said my performance was…horrible. I think he's right too.

Hello Cowboys ‘n Cowgirls,
I’ve checked in on y'all again and want to clarify a couple of things. First, the blogs I post are simply statements from my own warped mind and in no way reflect the opinions or beliefs of the other band members. We will never be a political band that feels the need to shove our opinions down your throats. Our music is written because of our love of music and meant to be shared with the hope of everyone being able to enjoy it together regardless of any diversity. That said, I do have strong political beliefs and will on occasion rant because that’s what I feel this is all about. But, I promise never to incorporate that into Deftones. I appreciate your continual support and look forward to touring in front of you as soon as possible.

Now you say, “Hi Chinky Spice.” Say it God damn it. I’m feeling sparky today, sorry. Woke up alone and early. Me & Abe flew down to Burbank yesterday. We will be here in Hollywierd for 3 weeks to continue writing. Apparently it’s been burning down here and it’s not just the usual amount of pollution I am sucking in along with my formaldehyde from Camels. If you’re from here, chances are you’ll probably see me somewhere. I tend to walk, and only the mad, homeless, or drug addled do that here. Try not to run me over again while you are driving around your Lexus whilst talking on the phone and reaching down to tell your Chihuahua “bad doggie” as she shits on your Prada bag. I thought of watching some TV this morning to get caught up and have something to tell you but I simply don’t have the stomach for it. Our TV blew up a couple of weeks ago and I’m kinda outta the loop. All we had was some pirated basic cable downstairs anyway, so I really didn’t miss much. We had a falling out with a certain cable company that sounds like cumcast and I told ‘em to go fuck them selves. So, instead of watching the usual stream of human cruelty on the tube I am listening to Mozart and talking to you. It’s really much more pleasant, well for me I suppose. I bet your getting really tired of hearing from the ‘ol Chinaman and wish someone else in the band would chime in. Me too, too bad you’re stuck with my sorry blogs. So, what’s going on? Y'all have a good Halloween? I did. Took Gabe & colleen trick or treating then handed out candy like nice ‘ol folks. Gabe was a skeleton zombie thing, Colleen was Uma Thurman from Kill Bill, and I was, as per their request, Eric Cartman. I will try to get you photos. Some dumbshit kid called me Stewie though. That’s okay. Cartoons are about all I watch on TV except for Lost, which we are all addicted to. PS, shout out to Jorge Garcia, you’re the bomb Hurley. Thanx for the figure, that’s a fine ass program. It has also brought the band closer as we are all addicted to it and watch it over and over again. Also, got another tattoo from my boy Bao at Hard Luck in Lodi. He's amazing and I love going down there, obviously. Before you ask how many tattoo's I got, the answer is 20 years worth. Miss my beautiful wife & son, but am grateful to be down here trying to finish this up. It’s very exciting and Chino said "snappy”. I also miss my 3 dogs and am sad that one of our ferrets is dying. Pls. pour one out for Alec Baldwin, I don’t think he's gonna make it. Anyhow, I guess I'll go and try to get a life or smoke a cig or something. I hope you had fun and thanx as always for your support.

Cheng Checks In
I've been on a personal hiatus and I apologize fer my absence. We've been locked into the studio as you know and are finishing the drum tracks on a song tentatively called "Trempest." Its heavy as fuck with a shitload of groove 'n even though its been driving me crazy as it runs through my insomniatic brain, I am really excited! I always say this shit but I truly believe this album to be well worth the wait and appreciate all your support and kind loyalty. The idea of finishing the album and getting out to play in front of y'all is a nice light at the end of my tunnel. We intend to tour extensively so don't fret. On a person note, I've been holding up 'n out. Went to a tattoo convention to support my boys at hard luck and many many other friends. If your wondering "does he always have more tattoo's than last time I saw him?" - yes, I do. I want to thank anyone who has gotten a tone tat and say it is amazingly flattering. I have finished reading Matt Ruffs "Bad Monkey" and am reading Thomas Pynchons "V-A" book on the history of civilization, and some more Buddhist literature. Took my son to see Iron Man and really enjoyed it. Hit an "X" dead center at 50 yards with my sig pistol. Clean my house, work on music and a little writing and lovin' on Colleen, Gabe and the dogs. Hope to see you all very soon!
my deepest respect as always
P.S. I will now throw the band under the bus and let you know that we are all online playing full tilt poker for fake money. I go by "chetcheng," Chino goes by "chinote," Stef goes by "dodoubleg," and I think and frank is "fmdee." Abe doesn't play games, sorry. If you feel so inclined come 'n see if you can take our money.
