C.A.T: Californication

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californication (1999)
“Hey guys, I want to do one more C.A.T, for old time’s sake.”

“Oh yeah? What album?”

“It’s the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Californication, you know, because it just turned ten years old.”

“Have we really not done that album yet, I mean it was on everyone’s 90s lists, don’t you think we’ve heaped enough praise on it?”

“Well, it wasn’t on Nancy’s, he had to make room for The Chronic. Plus, there hasn’t been a RHCP album inducted into the hallowed halls of CAT yet.”

“OK, I guess. But what makes you the man to write that entry?”

“Nothing, really. I’ll probably just look it up on Wikipedia and post some random facts, like I always do. Like, did you know that David Bowie wanted to produce this album?”

“Actually, yeah, I did.”

“I’m sorry. There’s a reason I don’t do these very often.”

“It’s OK, you can do it.”

“Really? That means a lot. I mean, Californication is definitely one of my favorite albums ever, it’s just packed with songs that I love. It totally changed the way I perceived the Chili Peppers, and I can’t praise it enough.”

“Good, because I don’t want you to.”


“Whatever Sean, just make sure you have it posted before midnight.”

“I’m not making any promises.”
