What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in New York?
Sushi at Japonica. Maybe that’s not that cool, but my husband took me there fifteen years ago and it was the first time I ever had sushi. While I was eating it I started crying and when he asked me why, I said, “It took me 29 years to taste this and I could’ve been eating it the whole time.” Most couples can say, “They’re playing our song,” but we don’t have a song, we have a hand roll. Salmon, avocado, and plain mayonnaise.
Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band - Bad Dancer
For all you bad dancers.
as you can imagine, shit is just fkd up right now. but i wanna say thank you to all our
friends and family (which are kinda one in the same) for all the love and support.
i’m glad to know that all the love that Yauch has put out into the world is coming right back at him.
This is by far one of the best pieces written on the passing of MCA. Thank you Questlove.
i know the Boys are going down in history as “first white act this” and “video pioneers that” and blah blah blah….
but id like to acknowledge that they are truly rocks most realized group. (not hip hop but all music really)
you really don’t see many audiences willing to go where their leaders take them once said audience gets comfortable with a position—i mean even the beatles imploded 5 years post spiritual enlightenment. i mean did we really expect the most thoughtful mature considerate act in music to be the same brats who gave us Licensed To Ill?
-?uestlove in the place to be.
Beastie Boys - Hey Ladies
I loved this album the best and dissected every lyric with my friends. Later when I moved to NYC I lived in an apartment catty corner to this cover and it was a huge bragging point back to my friends in Florida.
I filmed this at the last Beastie Boys concert I went to in 2008 at Terminal 5. I couldn’t stop from dancing so it’s shaky but it’s a pretty good portion of So Watcha Want. I went to this show with one of my best friends and it was a surprise for his birthday that me and his girlfriend (now wife!) planned. I can’t even count how many times I saw them live at this point but I know for the sure the top 3 shows I ever saw are in this order:
Check Your Head Tour at Cameo Theater in South Beach.
Lollapalooza Tour in Miami.
Secret Hello Nasty Show at Irving Plaza in NYC.
Beastie Boys - No Sleep Till Brooklyn
Born and bred in Brooklyn, the USA
They call me Adam Yauch, but I’m MCA
Another reason to live in Brooklyn
Beastie Boys x Nixon Time Teller
When I heard that there was going to be a Beastie Boys x Nixon limited edition watch collabo I was sure to let Nixon know I am unusually obsessed with the Beastie Boys. The coolesy thing about it is that when you buy a watch you raise money for WKCR-FM, Columbia University’s non-commercial student-run radio station.
How stoked am I that this was delivered to my desk today? Very.
You can get yours here.
