Remember records? Those big round circles made with tiny ridges that produced sound waves? Yah, they were cool. Growing up, I had a nice size record collection but they all pretty much vanished over the years. I moved, we had a garage sale or worse, I threw them out. Well, all except one. I was given Check Your Head as a gift and it's the one record I could (and would never!) part with.
I grew up listening to the Beastie Boys. License to Ill, Paul's Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication, Hello, Nasty. I know every word to every song and proudly pretend to be the fourth member every time they come on the radio. So, you can imagine my sadness when I found about the passing of MCA (aka. Adam Yauch). My heart goes out to his family & friends. In a strange way, I feel as I knew him since the beastie boys have been in my life for a very long time. I'm a beastie girl forever!
