Just cracking wise. I'm genuinely saddened by this news, he was a great musician.

 

Wait a minute, you came into a "Dead Celebrity" thread and you're shocked at a too-soon joke? Is it only some celebrities that get the schadenfreude treatment? Is there a list?

post #5154 of 7487

Man..........................................................................this just sucks.

post #5155 of 7487

A great musician, an important activist and a pretty decent filmmaker too. Dude directed videos, movies and had his own production company. So sad.

post #5156 of 7487

Living in a world where the Beastie Boys no longer exist is gonna take some getting used to. It really is the end of an era.

 

With MCA's longtime involvement in the Free Tibet movement, I look forward to hearing the Dalai Lama's response to this.

post #5157 of 7487

Yeah, Oscilloscope is an incredible company, I hope they stay afloat after this. A tough loss.

post #5158 of 7487

I had no idea his company distributed We Need To Talk About Kevin, Exit Through The Gift Shop, Meek's Cutoff and more. Christ, now I'm even more depressed.

Just heard this on the radio coming back from The Avengers. Radio was playing "Girls" and I was like "Shit, Licensed to Ill never gets airplay anymore," and then the DJ said "We're playing that in memory of..."

Me: "FUCK YOU, DON'T EVEN SAY IT"

"...Adam Yauch, who has passed away."

"FUCK."

 

Then they played three other Licensed tracks.

 

What can I say, man, these guys were the soundtrack of my late high school years and Paul's Boutique is a masterpiece.

post #5162 of 7487

Whole months of my college years were spent with Licensed to Ill and Paul's Boutique thumping in the school paper's office. These guys were pioneers. He will be missed.

post #5163 of 7487

You know what's terrific but always gets dismissed or overlooked? Hello Nasty. Paul's Boutique is their seminal masterpiece, but I always loved how ambitious Hello Nasty is. 

post #5164 of 7487

Yup yup yup.

Fucking solid from beginning to end.

 

 

Goddamn, fucking sucks that Nathaniel Hornblower is dead.

post #5166 of 7487

Yeah, Hello Nasty is a fantastic album. Had that thing on endless repeat in '99. Paul's Boutique gets a ton of love (rightfully so) but Check Your Head is the one that really turned my head. So much good stuff on that one. "So Whatcha Want" is epic.

post #5167 of 7487

Beaks drops knowledge and pays his respects (love closing out with this "B-Boy Bouillabaisse" lyric: "MC for what I am and do/The A is for Adam and the lyrics true")

post #5168 of 7487

Paul's Boutique is their best. Check Your Head is my favorite. But Hello Nasty is no slouch either. 

post #5169 of 7487

Well this certainly sucks. Now I'm going to have to take out my cd of Ill Communication and check out my Criterion dvd of the Video Anthology. The Beastie Boys were so great. Still remember listening to and watching the video of "Sure Shot."

post #5170 of 7487

Really sad. I didn't know about all his extracurricular activities, and really, who doesn't love the Beastie Boys?

Yep.

 

I've been digesting this one the last couple of days. This ones really hurt.

 

One third of my favorite and I think possibly the greatest ever hip hop act is gone, drawing the curtain on the last and longest serving act from the golden era of 80's rap and one of the most consistently creative, interesting and just fucking cool musical acts I'm ever going to see.

 

It's funny the celebrity deaths that really get to you, but then, never underestimate the power of the musicians that gave you a soundtrack to your life.

 

So long MCA, so long Beastie Boys. The world became significantly less awesome this weekend past.

R.I.P. MCA. I was never a huge Beasties fan but certainly had an appreciation for them, and this just fucking sucks.

I was not previously aware that Yauch was co-founder of Oscilloscope Laboratories, one of the few independent feature film distributors currently worth a damn. Thanks for Exit Through the Gift Shop and Meek's Cutoff, in particular.

Three days later and I'm still bummed about this.  And I rarely get bummed about a celeb passing.  Rocking Hello Nasty at work right now. 

 

One of my favorite MCA moments was after 3rd Bass TRIED to start some sort of rap fued with them, MCA snapped back with this nogget from Professor Booty:

 

So many wack m.c's, you get that T.V. bozak
Aint even gonna call out your names cuz ya' so wack
And one big oaf, who's faker than plastic
A dictionary definition of the word spastic
You shoulda' never started something you couldn't finish
Cuz' writing rhymes to me is like Popeye to spinach
I'm bas ass, move ya' fat ass, cuz your wack son
Dancing around like you think your Janet Jackson
Thought you could walk on me to get some kinda' walk
I'll pull a rug out from undereath your ass as I talk on
I'll take you out like a sniper on a roof
Like an m.c. at the fever in the d.j. booth
With your head phones strapped, ya' rocking rewind pause
Trying to figure out what you to do to go for yours
But, like a pencil to a paper I got more to come
One after another you can all get some
So you better take your time, and meditate on your rhyme
Cuz ya' shit'll be stinking when I go for mine
And that's right y'all
Don't get uptight y'all
You say shit when I bite, when I write y'all
And that's wrong y'all
Over the long haul
You can't cut the mustard when fronting it on,it on

 

And that was it.  Game over, 3rd bass. 

post #5178 of 7487

I made this post and playlist to try and honor MCA. I tried to make it as eclectic as possible, to underline just how much growth and maturity they had over the years. Punk, hip hop, funk, jazz, bossanova, country, folk, these guys did it all. I also tried to include songs with sick Yauch verses, like one of my personal favorites, "Stand Together" from Check Hour Head.

post #5179 of 7487

Like to see Hello Nasty getting some love. That and Ill Communication are my favorite albums by them, which isn't a popular opinion.

post #5180 of 7487

Maurice Sendak. Damn it.

 

Not to make light of it but Spike Jonze has gotta be bumming, what with MCA and now this.

I have the sudden need to move Bjork and Charlie Kaufman into an underground bunker.

post #5182 of 7487

...and just a few months after Sendak's brilliantly hilarious interview with Stephen Colbert.

 

Once again, here it is. It's well worth watching:

 

Maurice Sendak on The Colbert Report part 1

 

Maurice Sendak on The Colbert Report part 2

post #5183 of 7487

I will probably post this in the Music Thread as well, but I've been listening to DJ Mick Boogie's recent mixtape of the Beastie Boys entitled Grand Royal. This tape dropped before MCA's death and has an insane amount of unreleased tracks, remixes, and live stuff! It's free if you wanna grab it.

 

Really shocked about his death.

Thanks for that. Managed to miss it like a witless imbecile.

 

"It's free if you wanna grab it."

 

And this!

 

"I have the sudden need to move Bjork and Charlie Kaufman into an underground bunker."

 

LOL - I notice you didn't include Sofia Coppola.

Vidal Sassoon, dead of an unspecified illness at the age of 84.  Wash, rinse, no more repeat.

post #5186 of 7487

Surprised no one said anything about the passing of James Isaac. He directed Jason X and Skinwalkers, and worked on the FX for films like eXistenZ, Gremlins, Enemy Mine, Naked Lunch and House II. He was 51. Cancer.

post #5187 of 7487

Vidal's vitals are idle?

post #5188 of 7487

It looks like someone in Heaven can expect a makeover tonight!

A solid groove?  He could turn... wait for it... goat piss into gasoline!

Seriously, do the winter months just kick the shit out of ailing people...you'd think Spring would be getting them up and dancing rather than burying them.

Ah, fuck. Great deliverer of lines, both bass and - occasionally - dialogue.

 

Donald 'Duck' Dunn: The shit fit, and he wore it. RIP.

My wife works in the funeral business, and there are apparently some spike times. November, for people with nothing to look forward to at Xmas, early February for those who held on to see the grandkids one last time, and May/June for warmer weather and the infamous yard work heart attack.

Chuck Brown, the Godfather of Go-Go died today.

 

'A beloved D.C. music legend has passed away at the age of 75, Johns Hopkins Hospital confirmed Wednesday afternoon.

The Godfather of Go-Go Chuck Brown had been hospitalized for several weeks.

His daughter Cherita Whiting says  he died from complications from pneumonia.'Chuck Brown.jpg

Losing Chuck really, really hurts. I met the man outside of a VT-Maryland game (his son played for the Hokies), and he couldn't have been more gracious to everyone who came up to him, beaming and friendly. A wonderful man, and a ridiculously great legacy that goes beyond the music he made. 75 or not, he was just one of those people you don't expect the world to be without.

 

Wind me up, Chuck!
