I do wish people would stop remembering MCA by posting Adrock and Mike D quotes though.
After Lhasa died in Jan 2010, I couldn't listen to her music for over a year. Lhasa was only 37. I listened to some Beastie Boys right after I found out. But yesterday my husband wanted to blast So Whatcha Want, and I made him stop.
I was so sad when Lhasa died! So talented.
Our old friend Gaba Kulka dealt with her sadness about MCA's passing by recording a sweet little cover of his song "I Don't Know" from Hello Nasty. I asked her if I could share it and she was happy to do that. You can listen to and or download it here.
At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

That's really sweet of Gaba. I've been worried about revisiting I Don't Know in particular, because it was always one of my favourites and a song I found to be a really helpful crutch for a long time. Yauch/Hatori were a wonderful combination.
Where the Wild Things Are author Maurice Sendak died from complications from a recent stroke. He was 83.
Very sad about this one. He was a pretty awesome dude.

I was reading about him just this morning in a review of Colbert's new book. He did an interview on Colbert a few months ago which was one of the most bizarre ones in the show's history, and that's saying a lot.
How odd, my son and I randomly read that book last night after having not read it for over a year!
I will have a wild rumpus in his honor.
I am the beginning. The end. The one that is many.
One of the best children's books of all time. My favorite for sure.

I had gotten all ready for work, done my make up, and was finishing my coffee... the news of his passing came on the news... I immediately started crying. He's the author of my childhood! This is so sad. He was such an amazing (and famously grumpy) man. His insight and genius were a great gift to our world.
You don't have to do everything all by yourself.
