steamingpile: So veganism is not a defense for cancer, no surprise.Seems some of this is his fault since he was going to Tibetan doctors, was that because of his religion? Stupid move.
Tyrone Biggums: I remember when License to Ill came out. My brother and I thought it was the best thing ever. And if I recall correctly, it was on the Billboard top 100 well into the 90's.RIP
TheGhostofFarkPast: Gratitude- my favorite Beastie Boys song.
steamingpile: I still love all these people who claim to have bought [Paul's Boutique] when it first came out when it took a decade to reach make money area. The album bombed yet everyone claims to have bought it the first week, I had it but only because we used it for jobs and I didn't like it until listening to it about a year and a half later.Sorry to harp on this but I find it ironic everyone says they had it the first week.
ipsofacto: the only frame of reference i need is being physically nauseated by the sound of Mike D(?)'s voice. Yeah, Fight for Your Right was cool...but I was ten. Brass Monkey, Paul Revere, etc., etc. Sorry I can't get over that piercing voice. I guess i'm not hip enough for your parties, lol. Doesn't change the fact they sound like shiat.
ipsofacto: their music largely sucked
ipsofacto: downstairs: And if you seriously can't rock out to "Sabotage"... then go back to your collection of Ray Conniff LPs.yeah, i 'rocked out' to sabotage driving in cars with my brother @ what 18? Still that voice. permeates through most every song and ultimately ruins it.
ipsofacto: santadog: I love Tool! Maynard has a sweet voice.I can agree with this.
keepitcherry: downstairs: keepitcherry: LOL. That just proves you have no farking idea what you're talking about. They were the first white guys to actually be taken seriously in hip hop. I can't think of a group with a more diverse group of fans. They appealed to people from the streets as well as the kids from suburbia. You're one of those douches who hates shiat they don't even have a frame of reference in.And a hell of a diverse band in general. They didn't invent rap, but they were the Beatles of an entire genre. Rap, hip-hop, and all its derivitaves would be FAR different if they never came along.Absolutely!
ipsofacto: Seminorm Null: God damn it. That sucks. Also if you don't like Beastie Boys you suck.bullshiat. Tell me what was so great about them. Their fresh beats? Their gripping social commentary? Their nasally, grating voices? Chances are if you like to listen to the Beastie Boys, you're a tool.
ipsofacto: so what? It's white guys rapping, shiattily. Maybe it sounds great at your frat party or irish pub, but that might be the ghb you're on.
mjg: I saw The Beastie Boys perform for about 30 people on 110th floor of the World Trade Center. No joke.It was 1998 and my friends and I went to Windows On The World at WTC. It was a Tuesday night and was getting kind of quiet around 2am. Most people were going home. Three guys got up, with a dj in back, on the stage. Holy crap. The Beastie Boys. They did a short set for no reason other than to amuse themselves and entertain a couple of friends they were there with. And the last song in the set was Don't Sleep Till Brooklyn. Behind them was the East River and Brooklyn. I'm not sure if it gets more New York, or Brooklyn, than that./Great memory//Rest in peace Adam
Homer Elmer: This sucks.A few years ago I saw a video of them live in concert, the camera followed them moving around backstage, into the halls and finally to another spot up high in the crowd, where they continued to do some songs for the encore. I wish I could find that video again
100 Watt Walrus: steamingpile: So veganism is not a defense for cancer, no surprise.Seems some of this is his fault since he was going to Tibetan doctors, was that because of his religion? Stupid move.I'm so glad there's someone in this thread who has read up intensely and completely on Yauch's battle with cancer, and know absolutely everything he was doing to combat it. It's a shame to hear, from someone with such intimate knowledge, that Yauch was not receiving any other kind of treatment besides a new diet from someone in Tibet. And it's a shame that a dietary change, no matter what his reasons, couldn't possibly have made any difference at all what was left of Yauch's live, and that making some change, any change, had no chance of having even an emotional or psychological effect on how he dealt with facing death.I'm so grateful to you, steamingpile for the deep thoughts, personal sensitivity and extensive knowledge you bring to every discussion on Fark, whether it's spouting off pointlessly about trivial facts surrounding the death of a musician, or spouting off pointlessly about how the color of someone's skin plays a role in their behavior.You are a true treasure of these threads. Thank you. Sincerely, thank you./putz
