It's alright...by the time you'd finished your fb post, the video will have been ganked offline.

Odd how little coverage, if any, the mainstream media has given this

it was on the front page of cnn.com over the weekend.

Made the front page of the NYTimes (below the fold). (oops, xp)

Didn't catch the network news that night, but there was about a 2-minute piece on the CBS morning show on Saturday (and it totally sucked; only clip was FFYRTP, completely omitted Yauch's Buddhism/work for Tibet, and ended with some bullshit tagline like "this 'bad boy' will be missed").

My mum knew about it, so there must've been some coverage.

Sick Mouthy (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 7 May 2012 20:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

didn't see it on network news fri or sat. - guess i missed it. Currently, cnn.com home page has only a mention of "artists pay tribute" as the fifth item under the "entertainment" listing

well that's what happens when you die on a Friday

That's crazy, they had a good segment on NPR and I've seen a lot of coverage.

The Washington Times article lives up to the newspaper's batshit insane rep

I saw a couple quick things on local news and Diane Sawyer.

I checked MTV and VH1 a few times and saw nothing more than a 60-second MTV News thing with Sway interrupting an episode of Ridiculousness.

i'm sure VH1 wanted to run something but Jim Shearer hasn't been able to stop weeping long enough to get in front of a camera

some dude, Monday, 7 May 2012 21:05 (1 year ago) Permalink

Theres like 9 MTV/VH1 channels now, you'd figure at least one of them could've played some B-Boy retrospectives..

I watched the whole music video collection w/the band commentary turned on to start my day yesterday.

Billy Corgan
Although I did not know Adam well, I respected him as a spiritual warrior who fought strongly for peace in this world. And whether he ever knew it or not, he had a lot to do with my own spiritual awakening. He led with his heart, and in the conversations we had that's what stands out most; that he was real to his core.

I wonder what AdRock and Mike D will make of all the people coming out of the woodwork to say 'a few words'

Probably be nice, not say too much, and go on being pretty chill guys

lots of coverage here; on Friday it was the second lead story on the main BBC site for hours.

i certainly can't think of any other musician that i've heard memorialized extensively on the local rock and hip-hop stations

Wasn't Loder the one who said something about drugs/nicotine when William burroughs passed at a ripe old age?

eh, i dunno, that's a pretty good piece.

lol figured that was 3rd Bass before I even clicked on it

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Thursday, 10 May 2012 20:48 (1 year ago) Permalink

beef always seemed really one-sided to me, 3rd Bass defensively attacking their peers to make a name for themselves.

never understood how the Professor Booty verses were determined to be directed at 3rd Bass - did the Beasties say that in an interview somewhere or something? cuz the disses are pretty generic

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Thursday, 10 May 2012 20:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

It's kind of a shame that I've seen the Beastie Boys be awesome two or three times, but the last time I saw them, at Stubbs in Austin playing a "surprise" SXSW gig, they were slop-city.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 10 May 2012 20:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

Twere great both times I saw them. Once on IC tour at Brixton and earlier at Town & Country Club where they were co-headlining with Henry Rollins. Beasties played first so they were done by 9pm allowing me to get home nice and early which I appreciated. I'm not v rock n roll.
