    Hey guys and gals,

    I'm waiting to post last night's dinner later on in the thread because it included some Lay's chips from the Indian grocery that I posted the other day and I wanted to give a little review. Tonight I wanted to focus the OP on MCA and one of my speciality dishes.

    On Tonight's Menu:

    Cheddar Burger & Brussel Sprouts - Hamburger on a Rye Bun with Sautéed Onions and Store Bought Cheese Sauce with Roasted Brussel Sprouts of Heavenly Divination...

    [​IMG]

    ...and I had trouble deciding which Beastie Boys song to post here, so I'm cheating a bit. I will first start off by posting my all-time favorite Beastie Boys album in its entirety. You've gotta love "Paul's Boutique":

    [video=youtube;pKNmLMs7ugw]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKNmLMs7ugw[/video]

    ...and I decided to post this track because its about what influenced the Beastie Boys, what they love, where they came from. It also has this rhyme from MCA which seems so appropriate now. I know the Beastie Boys were about having fun for the most part, but I remembered this...

    "Bob Marley Was A Prophet For The Freedom Fight
    ""If Dancin' Prays To The Lord Then I Shall Feel Alright""
    I'm Feeling Good To Play A Little Music
    Tears Running Down My Face 'Cause I Love To Do It
    And No One Can Stop This Flow From Flowing On
    A Flow Master In Disaster With A Sound That's Gone
    I'll Give A Little Shout Out To My Dad And Mom
    For Bringing Me Into This World And So On
    "

    (Sorry, this video is the only one they have of the song on Youtube and its the censored version)

    [video=youtube;Xf1YF_MH1xc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xf1YF_MH1xc&ob=av2e[/video]

    Talk about food, talk about music, talk about MCA and the Beastie Boys. Everyone's welcome.

    I'll be here, with a Wild Blue beer wishing you all the best. :toptip:

    First!!

    Edit: I was going to start a MCA tribute drinking thread tonight, but that slimeball Wetback snaked me.


    Awesome choice.

    Paul's boutique was their best work.

    Second edit: To really start a Beastie boys thread, we need to start at the beginning:

    I also vote that anyone who does not post a Beastie's song be shunned.

    Hi Frannie. I was really sad to hear about Adam Yauch today. The Beastie Boys have been around for as long as I can remember. It is really sad when someone is taken far too young.

    Now while not my favorite Beastie Boys' song, Sabotage is a good song and has a great video. And you know how certain songs remind you of certain people? This song always reminds me of my roommate at UCLA. She'd come blasting into rooms singing Sabotage sometimes. :) BTW, I love the look of those Brussel Sprouts! :)

    See, I was just posting earlier about how they made an impression on so many people in so many different ways, but one thing is almost certain....not very many people who got into the Beastie Boys ever stopped liking them or listening to them.

    I vote barbecue chicken and a salad. :)

    No one is shunned in my thread, but posting a favorite Beatie Boys song(if your lucky enough to find it on Youtube) is highly encouraged. :)

    I wholeheartedly agree. :cool:

    I always thought it was funny how this is one of their most well-known songs. Its very punk for the most part and the video is a modern day classic.





    Speaking of Beastie Boys and punk rock. Their straight-up punk EP "Aglio y Olio" is awesome very influenced by Black Flag and Suicidal Tendencies. They do it well.

    My brussel sprouts are the best thing I make (srs).

    Shiba Inu dogs. :wub:

    I will listen to this later. I'm listening to the Beastie Boys now. :cool:

    Hope your weekend is going well so far, beetlejosh. :eek:
