It's Star Wars Day, the eve of Free Comic Book Day, I'm going on a roller derby road-trip tomorrow, and there's a new Joss Whedon movie out. And as sometimes happens on days filled with such joy, you get hit with a throat-punch of a horrible event. While at work earlier today, got hit with the awful news that Adam Yauch, better known as MCA of the Beastie Boys, had died from cancer. Beastie Boys are one of my favorite all time bands, and attending a Beastie Boys concert was right on the top of bucket-list, that dream will now go unrealized. And for the next little while, for the first time ever, songs like Fight for your Right to Party and Sabotage will get me choked up. Attached here is a clip from The Late Show from a few years back, featuring one of the greatest live performances ever recorded for television. Enjoy.
