HOMAGE TO ADAM YAUCH, aka MCA, BEASTIE BOYS

I told my good friend this morning that I'm either overly emotional or habitually hormonal but the news of MCA's death (Adam Yauch from the Beastie Boys) hit harder than I expected. The Beastie Boys were the uber cool homies I wish I had during my angst-filled teenage years. Music was and always will be my Prozac so BB got me through some tough times during my teenage years and continued into adulthood. I never saw them live and they were on my "to-see" list of bands. There will never be another band like the Beastie Boys and MCA was like no other. 


You fought against the monster, Cancer, but you didn't lose, MCA. You were just one of many valiant soldiers who battled against the war on Cancer. I salute you! (I couldn't choose a favorite video because they were all favorites.)
