    it just seems so... i dunno...not fair and unbelievable. an evil little salivary gland. not a vital organ like 'oh i have lung, or liver, or pancreas cancer' (although i guess it must have spread cuz you dont die directly from a cancerous gland that makes saliva).

    i remember when he announced it, he said they had caught it in it's early stages and it was just in the parotid gland and a lymph node and he was getting surgery to remove the tumor and some radiation. i thought he would NEVER die. i had heard he was in remission and was overjoyed, then the ominous announcement he made personally that no, he wasn't done 'the fight'. that gave me the heebie jeebies when he said that. i felt it must have spread. that must have been one aggressive mutha'f'er cancer.

    i'm so sad. and sick. i hate cancer. like seriously, this was not a guy who lived fast and would have died of an OD. he didn't deserve this crap.

    i hope he is at peace now.

    eta-not that people who live fast and have potential to OD deserve to die either mind you.

    It has been a day and I am still very upset. I love the Beastie Boys and MCA was always my favorite. He was one of the few celebrities that I would have loved to sit down and have a conversaiton with. I always thought it might be a possibility. In that hopeful, remote, 6 degrees kind of way. I had a thin connection where ( in my mind ) it might be possible some day. My children went to school with the children of one of the other Beasties. Too bad that Beastie is an ass. I am bummed I will never meet the one I adored.

    The Beastie WOULD be Mike D. It wasn't even fans he was closed off to. No one ever talked to him about the Beasties. Most of the parents didn't give 2 shits who he is and the rest didn't know who he was. We are just parents. The school is small and most parents are close and very involved in the school. It was just so bizarre how he acted like he was the shit and seriously no one was there to see him. They just wanted to spend time with their kids and be a part of the school.

    I'm betting it probably is. I saw a video on youtube yesterday with the other Adam and MCA. It was when MCA first found out he had cancer. The other Adam almost chocked up when MCA was talking about it. Mike D wasn't at the interview.

    MCA was my favorite and Mike D. was my least favorite. I am glad to see that wasn't unwarranted. What a dick.

    I was sad when I heard about this but for some reason I just can't stop thinking about him today, and just what a loss it is. They were really pioneers in hip hop music. And they had some great videos too.
    I had recently seen one of their newer videos and they were not in it. Seth Rogan and Elijah Wood and another guy were playing the Beasties, and then at the end they meet their future selves, played by other actors. It's a cool video but I just read that they weren't in it because of MCA being too sick. I feel so bad for his wife and daughter. 47 is just too young.

    I have a friend who works in cancer research (lab coat and everything) at a university research lab. She hates it. She said there are so many things they can't investigate and try because so much of their funding comes from cancer drug companies.

    I heard this on the radio a few days ago. While I agree the song is horrible, it is nice that they honored him. I think their hearts were in the right place.

    I've loved the Beasties for so many years... I remember feeling mortified once they'd all hit their forties, cos the Beasties would surely never get old???? Now I'm truly gutted... Too soon :'( RIP Adam x

    Here is kind of a cool little tribute. It is the first MCA line of all the Beastie Boys songs.

    This one is still a big shocker to me. I was jamming Paul's Boutique the other night and it was just so good. The Nephew was even bobbing his head to the Beasties, rocking out in his car seat.

    I didnīt know that he had a cancer...
    PD: I remember I worked as basketball referee in two games of a local league of my city where one of the team was called "Bistiboys" (in reference of the Beastie Boys)

    This still makes me have a sad. I have six of their albums and two EP's on my MP3 player - good stuff, you really can't beat it. I've been jamming 'The In Sound from Way Out' a lot lately. They were really smart, clever, witty and always had great beats and samples. I loved their music videos too, hahahaha. MCA on his own and he, Ad-Rock and Mike D as a band did a lot of good things, aside from being up there with Run DMC and the like as far as musical legends go. You could argue that the while Rick Rubin may have originally 'made' the Beastie Boys, the Beastie Boys made Rick Rubin. Hip hop owes a great debt to those guys.



    Here's a picture of MCA and his wife, who is gooooorgeous.
