    Thanks mate.

  • Condolences from me too, Rev.

    Re. Yauch. I must have sensed something because I had the Beasties on repeat all day today in the shop, which is a bit unusual for me. I'm usually mixing it up on a Friday.
  • Sorry to hear that, Rev.

    Unfortunate news Rev. Took me a hefty chunk of time to get over losing my dad.

    I lost an uncle in late September and an aunt in late February to cancer. I am hardly surprised about MCA. I actually mistakenly thought Ad Yauch was Ad Rock so was shocked then when I realised it was MCA less so.

    Still though, not even 50. Sad shit,

    Condolences to Rev.

    MCA :( Just heard on the ABC news, this sucks. Didn't even know he was ill, or if I did I have forgotten. ZMM, sort yourself out.
    Skerret's posting is ok to trip balls to and read just to experience the ambience but don't expect any content.

  • Adam Yauch • 1964-2012


    It is with great sadness that we confirm that musician, rapper, activist
    and director Adam "MCA" Yauch, founding member of Beastie Boys and also
    of the Milarepa Foundation that produced the Tibetan Freedom Concert
    benefits, and film production and distribution company Oscilloscope
    Laboratories, passed away in his native New York City this morning after
    a near-three-year battle with cancer. He was 47 years old.



    Born in Brooklyn, New York, Yauch taught himself to play bass in high
    school, forming a band for his 17th birthday party that would later
    become known the world over as Beastie Boys.



    With fellow members Michael "Mike D" Diamond and Adam "Adrock" Horovitz,
    Beastie Boys would go on to sell over 40 million records, release four
    #1 albums–including the first hip hop album ever to top the Billboard
    200, the band's 1986 debut full length, Licensed To Ill–win three
    Grammys, and the MTV Video Vanguard Lifetime Achievement award. Last
    month Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame,
    with Diamond and Horovitz reading an acceptance speech on behalf of
    Yauch, who was unable to attend.



    In addition to his hand in creating such historic Beastie Boys albums as
    Paul's Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication, Hello Nasty and
    more, Yauch was a founder of the Milarepa Fund, a non-profit
    organization dedicated to promoting awareness and activism regarding
    the injustices perpetrated on native Tibetans by Chinese occupational
    government and military forces. In 1996, Milarepa produced the first
    Tibetan Freedom Concert in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, which was
    attended by 100,000 people, making it the biggest benefit concert on
    U.S. soil since 1985's Live Aid. The Tibetan Freedom Concert series
    would continue to stage some of the most significant benefit shows in
    the world for nearly a decade following in New York City, Washington DC,
    Tokyo, Sydney, Amsterdam, Taipei and other cities.



    In the wake of September 11, 2001, Milarepa organized New Yorkers
    Against Violence, a benefit headlined by Beastie Boys at New York's
    Hammerstein Ballroom, with net proceeds disbursed to the New York
    Women's Foundation Disaster Relief Fund and the New York Association for
    New Americans (NYANA) September 11th Fund for New Americans–each chosen
    for their efforts on behalf of 9/11 victims least likely to receive
    help from other sources.



    Under the alias of Nathanial Hörnblowér, Yauch directed iconic Beastie
    Boys videos including "So Whatcha Want," "Intergalactic," "Body Movin"
    and "Ch-Check It Out." Under his own name, Yauch directed last year's
    Fight For Your Right Revisited, an extended video for "Make Some Noise"
    from Beastie Boys' Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, starring Elijah Wood,
    Danny McBride and Seth Rogen as the 1986 Beastie Boys, making their way
    through a half hour of cameo-studded misadventures before squaring off
    against Jack Black, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as Beastie Boys of
    the future.



    Yauch's passion and talent for filmmaking led to his founding of
    Oscilloscope Laboratories, which in 2008 released his directorial film
    debut, the basketball documentary Gunnin' For That #1 Spot and has since
    become a major force in independent video distribution, amassing a
    catalogue of such acclaimed titles as Kelly Reichardt's Wendy and Lucy,
    Oren Moverman's The Messenger, Banksy's Exit Through The Gift Shop,
    Lance Bangs and Spike Jonze's Tell Them Anything You Want: A Portrait Of
    Maurice Sendak, and many more.



    Yauch is survived by his wife Dechen and his daughter Tenzin Losel, as well as his parents Frances and Noel Yauch.

  • So... nobody mentioned the Edge Forum yet, hm?
  • I had no idea who MCA was either.  Zelda hasn't actually done anything wrong here. 
  • Adored's actually an invisible Invisible Scratch Pickl hence the consternation.

    MCA was a Beastie Boy. Now he's dead. End of. Literally.

    My opinion of the Beastie Boys is that they started out balls, gradually became slightly less balls but never really got out of the category of being more or less balls.

    Racist.
    Metroid Prime 4 is a reality let that sink in
  • This is about as good as the Beastie Boys get. Which is pretty good imo.
