One Lonely Beastie I Be...

I am mad sad tonight. Mad sad. Today Adam Yauch a.k.a. "MCA" of the Beastie Boys passed away. Did I mention I am sad?

These guys were MAJOR players in my life. I remember wearing my "Licensed to Ill" tape out in my bright yellow Sony Walkman while delivering papers on my paper route.

I mean... I think I can (and probably have) addressed most issues or circumstances in life with a well-dropped Beastie Boys lyric. I am sad.

Our whole house was kinda sad.

Ya can't be a player at Camp Hoffman and not be down with the Beasties. So tonight... even though sad... we chose to celebrate!

Meron got busy on the 1s and 2s under the watchful eye of Mebrate...

Cutting up some "Paul's Boutique." Best album ever. EVER.

Mebrate rocked her favorite shirt (even though she thinks I am on it...)

Even ClayBear got in on the action. Yep. He's a fan.

We copped some BBoy stances...

And copied some Beastie formations...

And I am still sad.

Ya know what's cool though? My girls kinda embody some of that Beastie spirit (see picture above!) - and I know MCA, his lyrics and his legacy will live on in our household.

"My man MCA had a beard like a billy goat..."

Much love Adam. Much love. Thanks for the YEARS of influence you have left me with.
