I always promised myself that one day, if I ever had a blog, I would make so many Beastie Boy postings that I’d either A.) Get fired, or B.) Get hired by the Beastie Boys. Neither has happened yet, so here’s another Beastie Boys blog posting for you to chew on. This one (unlike many other posts I’ve made) actually has some merit. Today is Adam Yauch’s birthday, so all together now kids: “Happy Birthday MCA!”

To give you a quick history lesson, MCA is the raspy-voiced Beastie Boy, who plays bass when the Beasties aren’t rhyming. He has directed (though this may be disputed by his uncle Nathaniel Hornblower) many of the Beastie Boys’ videos, and most recently helmed the basketball documentary, Gunnin’ For That #1 Spot. Yauch spearheaded the Tibetan Freedom Concert festivals that took place in the late 90’s. MCA also has an affinity for fish-eye lenses and playing dress-up.
