Red Hot Chili PeppersCalifornication (Warner Bros. 47386)Given their randy reputation, it's easy to assume that if the Red Hot Chili Peppers have decided to call an album "Californication," the songs are likely to be totally sex-obsessed. Indeed, the album boasts numerous R-rated references and even a few NC-17 lyrics.But on the whole, the emphasis in "Californication" is on romance, not sex.

No matter what happens the rest of the NFL season, Baltimore will be represented Super Bowl weekend in the New York region.  While it remains to be seen if that includes the Ravens competing on the field, Baltimore-bred rock quartet J. Roddy Walston and the Business will take part in the festivities. The band will join Red Hot Chili Peppers, MS MR, Basic Vacation and New Politics for WFAN's "Big Hello to Brooklyn" concert at the Barclays Center on Feb. 1, the night before Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey.

Excuse me, but didn't Anthony Kiedis once know how to sing?Granted, the guy would never be mistaken for Tony Bennett, but as any fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers would attest, at least he knew how to put a song across. There was a certain sly authority to the way he handled Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" and an unmistakable confidence to his rap-style delivery in "Give It Away Now." Even his occasionally awkward phrasing in "Under the Bridge" seemed more the product of innocence than incompetence.

Chili peppers are the sadists of the fruit kingdom. They love nothing better than to make people look like a child after watching "Old Yeller. " Teary eyes, a runny nose, whimpering and an animalistic craving for cold water (which won't help, by the way) can be the result of eating chili peppers. There are many different varieties of chili peppers, each with different levels of heat. From June until late November, the local farmers' markets sell many of these varieties. From the uncommon Bangalore torpedo to the ever-present jalapeno, farmers' markets contain a surprising wealth of pepper diversity.

Contrary to what the song says, breaking up is not hard to do. Rock bands do it all the time, in fact.Getting back together is another matter entirely. It's always hard for a band to re-integrate a member who walked away -- just ask Van Halen. So when the Red Hot Chili Peppers appeared onstage at the Tibetan Freedom Concert last year with John Frusciante back on guitar, many fans figured the reunion was temporary at best.After all, the Chili Peppers have been notoriously hard on guitar players.

Never mind the cast of mega-star performers that ranged from Michael Jackson to Elton John to Nirvana; forget about the award winners that ran the gamut from Van Halen to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Nirvana. What really made last night's Video Music Awards worth watching was the extent to which it marked MTV's descent into show-biz mediocrity.This was where rock video truly lost its innocence.We're not talking about innocence in the sexual sense. After all, rock videos have always been home for a whole range of bump-and-grind sexuality, and last night's show was no exception.

Mary J. Blige capped a big year with a leading eight nominations for the 49th annual Grammy Awards, including nods for best R&B album, record and song. The Breakthrough, which included the singer's collaboration with U2 on "One," was among the year's best-selling albums and also judged by critics as one of the strongest albums of Blige's career. Competing in the best-album category will be the Dixie Chicks' Taking the Long Way, Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere, John Mayer's Continuum, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium and Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveSounds.

Some days, your work is not excellent. Some days it is just so-so. Recently, for instance, I made a barbecue sauce that was the Roman Hruska of sauces, reminding me of the late Senator from Nebraska who spoke up for mediocrity. It was supposed to have been a zippy topping slathered on top of pork tenderloin. The tenderloin, fixed in my kettle cooker, turned out fine. The sauce, made with honey, chili peppers, orange juice and orange zest, turned out to be more fruity than fiery. These days, pork tenderloins are amazingly lean, sometimes sporting less fat than a fashion model.

Frequent Midnight Sun contributor Evan Haga caught the Red Hot Chili Peppers show in Washington last night. Here's his take: The most impressive thing about the Red Hot Chili Peppers' sold-out show last night at D.C.'s Verizon Center had more to do with what the band played than how they played it. The Chili Peppers formed in Los Angeles 28 years ago - an eternity in pop - and they're beginning to reap the nostalgic rewards of...

CHANGSHA, CHINA I had thought of myself as a daring, resilient traveler, but this would be a test. As one of 27 volunteers with the WorldTeach China program, I was to spend a year teaching English to middle school students in China's Hunan Province, 800 miles southwest of Beijing. I was 24 years old, two years removed from college, and itching to experience daily life in a foreign land. WorldTeach directs programs around the globe and China was not necessarily my first pick, but as a Korean adoptee, I have long been drawn to the idea of going to Asia.

LOS ANGELES -- Rock star or headmaster? Flea, the Red Hot Chili Peppers' impish bass player, will be both once his Silverlake Conservatory of Music opens its doors this month. "See that kid?" he asks, pointing to a child running past the back door. "Future tuba player." Sandwiched between a meat store and a storage area on Sunset Boulevard, the school is another addition to the ever-gentrifying hipster neighborhood of Silver Lake. The former thrift shop, once crammed with unwanted clothes and dusty knickknacks, is now a beautifully rendered practice studio with eight rooms, each named after a tone in the diatonic scale --do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti and do. "I've been teaching all these years in boarded-up old bathrooms and closets," says Keith Barry, a high school friend of Flea's who will be the conservatory's dean of education.

At first it sounds preposterous. Who on earth would think of pairing chili peppers and cheesecake? Or chili peppers and carrot cake? Or chili peppers and chocolate?Chili peppers and chocolate?But it's not as odd as it sounds. After all, all peppers, from bell to habanero, have an element of sweetness in their taste. And there's something about a little blast of heat that gives dessert a whole new dimension."It can be very stimulating to the palate to have something sweet and hot, or something icy cold and hot," said Janet Hazan, a California cookbook author and food writer who has done a series of three hot-foods cookbooks.
