a sad day.

Call me mushy, but when I heard the news today that MCA had passed it was ... heartbreak. MCA was kind of my favorite. Like so many other people, License to Ill was one of the first cassette tapes I ever owned. I thought it was brilliant that you could look at the cover in the mirror, and the 3MTA3 on the side of the plane said EATME. Check Your Head and Paul's Boutique provided the background music to my teenage years. In college, I got to see the Beastie Boys on tour.  I truly hope that Lo will be listening to What'cha Want in her room when she's in high school. Maybe Bowie will fight for his right to party. We'll definitely do our best to pass down the love. RIP, Adam Yauch. So sad.

  1. It was a soundtrack for my childhood too. My 9 year old is familiar with some of their songs already and was sad as well to hear the news :(

  3. I was also sad to hear the news. The Beastie Boys was part of growing up, for me. At least we can always load a track rock out, he is immortal in that way.

  4. I grew up with them too! I also had the cassette tape along with RunDMC. They were the pioneers of rap and Adam's sound was AWESOME! Isn't it amazing how music does play a huge roll in remembering certain life moments:)
