Beastie Boys

Following Ad Rock's lead, Mike D posted a message and picture of his own to the Beastie Boys Facebook and blog...

I know, we should have tweeted and instagrammed every sad, happy and inspired thought, smile or tear by now. But honestly the last few days have just been a blur of deep emotions for our closest friend, band mate and really brother. I miss Adam so much. He really served as a great example for myself and so many of what determination, faith, focus, and humility coupled with a sense of humor can accomplish. The world is in need of many more like him. We love you Adam. BTW this photo sent to me by a friend, (thanks Saslow) is just one awesome example of how NYC is such a unique place that amidst it's huge size and frenetic pace it really opens up it's heart in so many ways and on on so many levels in times like these. And though it makes me cry sometimes, it has been really amazing and moving to see.
Mike
He included the above picture from inside Madison Square Garden which is a nice accompaniment to our previously posted picture from outside MSG.

In related news, someone posted video of the entire benefit show the Beastie Boys played at Hiro Ballroom in 2006. Watch below...

say what you will about The Mets but they showed class on Friday night playing all Beastie Boys as each player came to the plate

The Beastie Boys are the reason I moved to Manhattan in 95 and will never leave... unless they turn my apartment into an ATM or Duane Reade.

"say what you will about The Mets"

Frack you, hipster - Adam was a Mets fan, Adrock is a Mets fan, Mike is more a hoops fan but sports the logo ...

Many native NY'ers are Mets fans. Only transplant interlopers and knuckleheads from the Jankee bleachers have Mets hate.

Go back to Iowa, skunk.

At that angle is it safe to say that Mike D had 300 or 400 level seats for the game?

something tells me mike d wasn't chilling at MSG on Sunday, two days after his friend died. someone else must've taken the pic.

You know what the best 2 things about Mets fans are?

Their abilities to tolerate loss and to be eternally patient.

I'm a Yankees fan.

2000 bitches hahaha.

'Still crying about it, huh Mutts fans?

'Still crying that your steroids-using star catcher Mike Piazza (that cuz he turned to shit way before Posada who has never and will never be suspected of taking steroids did) and his tubby backup Todd Pratt had brainfarts on the bases in Game 1? And who was the third asshead who didn't run all out with TWO OUTS ON CONTACT in that game? Timo Perez right? I never saw a team mentally crumble in a World Series game as bad as the Mutts did that night, LOL. Bigger LOL that Perez, Alex Ochoa, and Bobby Bonilla won World Series rings after leaving the Mets (former two with the '05 Chi-Sox, Bonilla with the '97 Marlins as the guy who scored the winning run on Renteria's walkoff Series-winning RBI single.)

'Still crying that Clemens turned your entire team into his bitches after he threw a shard of bat towards Piazza and Piazza did nothing about it when he should've charged Clemens to get Clemens ejected?

You wanna run some shit about how I've turned this into an anti-Mets/Mets fans thread, um, it's only cuz you Mutts fans turned an entry about Mike D posting a message about his passed on friend/brother from another mother into yet another Yankee-bashing thread including taking shits on dead Yankee game announcers (12:40pm.)

Real classy, Mutts fans. So sad the team you root for (really with those suckass attendance numbers?) has 100X more class than you. Oh yeah, if you're such fans, why did the Mets have to resort to offer the game after the season opener for free to get people to come to the season opener? I know the Yanks don't have to do that.

As if I needed further proof that Yankee fans can't help but froth at the mouth while simultaneously getting defensive at the slightest provocation. Like a mouse to cheese, indeed. :)

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 3:51 PM

Slightest provocation? One of you Anonymous lowlives (12:40pm) made fun of a dead man (Phil Rizzuto) who along with his late wife went down to one of the Hudson River triages to help the surviving victims and displaced people of the 9/11 attacks every day from their Westchester (Rockland?) county home when they didn't have to especially at their advanced ages.

'Love how you cry about me after I called you out for hijacking a thread about Mike D's message about MCA (RIP) and turning into "fuck the Yanks, and let's pile on D" bullshit.

You know what? BV please remove not only all the Yankee-bashing comments but my comments, too, fuck it.

Posted by D | May 7, 2012 4:00 PM

I love the Mets. I love them when they win better. But I still love them when they break my heart. Cheering for the Yankees always seemed like cheering for a bank or a gas company to me. The Mets organization is as dysfunctional as my family. I want to cheer for a team that needs to rise above that nonsense like I have to my own. Let's Go Mets!

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 4:01 PM

If D was a real Yankees fan, he'd know that Frank Messer is also dead.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 4:07 PM

You "love when they win better" sums up what fairweather fans most of you Mets fans are. Do some of you still hate Jose Reyes for signing with the Marlins after the Mets didn't even offer him a contract any time?

Cheering for the Mets always seemed like cheering for a team owned by a guy who did business with a Ponzi schemer who was sentenced for life for stealing millions upon millions of dollars from people who entrusted him with their lifetime earnings.

Oh wait...

Knock off the Yankee hate in a Mike D message about MCA thread and I'll drop my shots at the Mets, ok?

Posted by D | May 7, 2012 4:12 PM

I'll bet D throws a baseball like a girl.

Mike D hated the Yankees. We honor him by telling Yankee fans to choke on a bag of dicks. Get the fuck off this thread.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 4:28 PM

Didn't get to watch the game, did David Wright come out to "Brass Monkey"? He's been coming out to that for years, though sometimes he would come out to "Me & U" by Cassie which always seemed a little odd.

"You "love when they win better" sums up what fairweather (sic) fans most of you Mets fans are."
I know that you don't really get a lot of time to read as a supermarket bagger/stock boy, but the rest of the post pretty much dispells this statement in total. You Lose!

"Cheering for the Mets always seemed like cheering for a team owned by a guy who did business with a Ponzi schemer"
Always, huh? Like before any of us knew who Madoff was, and before the link to the Wilpons was established, that kind of always? That''s pretty prescient information that is quite frankly above your $38/hr pay grade, Skippy. And while we're on shenanigans, I thought I remembered that Steinbrenner had a little unethical problem a while back too, barring him from baseball altogether for a few seasons, or are you too young to remember that fat boy?

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 4:50 PM

4:21pm So you want people to ignore me yet you acknowledge my being here. Don't practice what you preach much?

4:28pm I seriously doubt Mike D hates the Yankees. I'm guessing he's one of those Mets fans who loves the Mets and doesn't give two shits about the Yanks save when the Mets play them during interleague play and the World Series.

You, however, are a typical Mets fans who hates the Yanks more than he loves the Mets, and that's sad. I pity you.

YOU get the fuck off this thread with your turning it into "hate the Yanks" nonsense.

Posted by D | May 7, 2012 4:50 PM

From Wikipedia:

"On July 30, 1990, Steinbrenner was *bann.ed*permanent.ly* from day-to-day management (but not ownership) of the Yankees by MLB Commissioner Fay Vincent for paying a gambler named Howie Spira $40,000 to dig up "dirt" on Winfield."

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 4:55 PM


Winfield had sued the Yankees for failing to contribute $300,000 to his foundation, a *guaranteed*stipulation* in his contract."

4:07pm Hey stupid, I guess you missed the "s" at the end of "announcers" here:

"You wanna run some shit about how I've turned this into an anti-Mets/Mets fans thread, um, it's only cuz you Mutts fans turned an entry about Mike D posting a message about his passed on friend/brother from another mother into yet another Yankee-bashing thread including taking shits on dead Yankee game announcers (12:40pm.)"

Yeah I'm not a real Yankees fan because I chose to mention the name of one dead Yankee game announcer not two, ok. Fuckin' nerd.

Keep disrespecting MCA by filling this thread with Yankee-hater nonsense and thinking only Mets fans/players are real Beastie fans and Mike D gives a flying fuck who is and isn't one or a Yankee fan, or gives a fuck about sports teams right now. SHUT UP!!!!!!

Posted by 3:42 | May 7, 2012 5:03 PM

D is a very disturbed individual. I don't know why bent beta males like him even bother pretending to be sports fans. Mike D most certainly was one. But D undoubtedly has the muscle tone of a penned veal and is more able to dribble saliva than a basketball.

5:03pm The thread was ruined when a bunch of Yankee-hating nerds were being that in a thread about Mike D's public message about MCA and continued to be that when I wrote ONE comment in response to a lowlife at 12:40pm who shit on two dead men because they called Yankee games. So get off your high horse, and how are you the one who told people to ignore me? You post as "Anonymous" like everyone else (save me.)

If you had just kept your fucking keyboard mouths shut I wouldn't have posted beyond that one post, but you ALWAYS have to be one up on me when you know you won't (like I won't be one up on you.)

4:55pm, From the Wikipedia page for George Steinbrenner:

"Steinbrenner was reinstated in 1993."

You people won't give it up will you?

Posted by D | May 7, 2012 5:21 PM

I didn't think that any thread was ruined until one small brained angry hater came on here feeling a need to set Mets fans straight about bullshit that did not belong on here. The Beasties were huge Mets and Knicks fans, it's well known. You cannot change history, any more that you can change how Steinbrenner paid some wiseguy to defame the legacy of one of his own players. With a boss like that, who needs enemas?

Very significant article for us, I think the representation of this article is actually superb one. This is my first visit to your site.

Posted by Advertising agencies in Pakistan | May 14, 2012 4:30 AM

5:21pm Yeah MCA was a huge Mets and Knicks fan. He also wasn't a Yankees-hating bitch who felt the need to turn this thread into a "fuck the Yankees" thread which I merely responded to with "fuck the Mets" then you all showed how you can dish it out but you can't take it. I also asked people to knock off the Yankee bashing especially when it reached a let's bash two dead Yankee game announcers (Phil Rizzuto and Frank Messer) level. You fucking peabrains who won't let it go because you ride my dick at every turn also didn't get the memo from me that Rizzuto like MCA directly helped the survivors of the 9/11 terrorist attacks with volunteerism. No, you kept going on about me and blah blah blah.

5:32pm I'm not "disrespecting MCA's legacy" you fucking nerd. I didn't turn this thread into a Yankee-bashing thread where dead Yankee announcers Phil Rizzuto and Frank Messer (whose lives were just as important as MCA's) were made fun of, YOU people did. I called for you people to drop the Yankee bashing, you didn't, so I went off on the Mets. Again, take what you dished and next time someone who was a Mets fan dies and it's reported on here, keep your hatred of the Yankees out of comments, especially when not only is it inappropriate and disrespectful to run your mouth about what has nothing to do with the dead person but shows you are still crying over the Yankees beating your team in the 2000 World Series.
