The Top Uses of Beastie Boys Songs in Movies

9 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The boys, the boys, the ! Oh yeah, for a long time they were the absolute best when it came to doing what they did. They knew how to put on a show, how to throw down with the best and how to straight up party when it came time to throw a great concert. With the loss of Adam Yauch and Steve Berry though they’re not quite the same despite their legendary sound. It’s exceedingly sad really that such a great band would undergo two hurtful losses despite the fact that they were something that couldn’t be avoided. It’s

Internet Genius Recreates the Beastie Boys' 'Sabotage' Video with Sesame Street Characters

7 July 2017 11:06 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you thought the original Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” music video couldn’t be any more cinematic, try adding Sesame Street characters from the 1985 film Follow that Bird. A fan has combined the iconic ’90s vid with your favorite Muppets, and the result—featuring Big Bird and Cookie Monster—might have topped the Spike Jonze-directed original.

Adam Schleichkorn (a.k.a. Mylo the Cat) posted the mashup on his YouTube channel isthishowyougoviral. The YouTuber explained how the original video was “one of the greatest of all time” and he therefore “couldn’t do a regular old lip sync video.” Other »

7 July 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No, it’s not a promo for the all puppet Beastie Boys cover band, The Beastie Birds, but the latest Sesame Street mashup is just as much fun. From the Webby Award-winning genius who set “Rick and Morty” to the mellifluous tunes of Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools (Drank),” comes yet another highly entertaining remake — this time to Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage.”

8 June 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Ayana Fite threatens Reginae Carter on tonight’s Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta, telling her: “I’ll knock your ass out.” The row comes after Reginae’s altercation with Ayana’s cousin Brandon Barnes, a vocal coach and son of hip-hop manager Ms. Deb, on last week’s episode. It came after Brandon made reference to Lil’ Wayne needing help with his career, and his comments about Black Lives Matter — saying it had “nothing to do with” him — which some said belittled the movement. Reginae, Lil’ Wayne’s daughter, ended up having a full-blown confrontation with him, while Ayana, daughter of The Beastie BoysDJ Hurricane,...read more »

To be honest I’m still having a very hard time getting over the fact that Bill Paxton died today.  I didn’t know the man but I just kind of felt like I did, you know?  He was one of those actors that’s been with us for such a long time and it’s like he was right there with you in every movie he appeared in.  The second I finished writing about his death I decided to go on Facebook to get my mind off of it.  What did I find?

The recognisable future of Children Of Men

25 February 2017 1:04 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Feb 27, 2017

Alfonso Cuaron's Children Of Men is a film from a decade ago that very much stands the test of time...

“Last one to die, please turn out the light.”

The tenth anniversary of Children Of Men came at the end of a tumultuous year in politics. You don't have to look far on the web for thinkpieces about how the results of the Brexit referendum or the election of Donald Trump as Us President have brought us closer to the grim forecast of Alfonso Cuarón's superb dystopian thriller, but rewatching it now, the film feels a triumph of preparation rather than prescience.

Based on Pd James' novel, the film takes place in the year 2027, in the midst of a global epidemic of infertility. Britain has closed its doors to immigrants and refuses to acknowledge the status of 'fugees' as human beings. The day after the »

Ch Ch Check It Out: Mike D. of the Beastie Boys Has a Gorgeous Family Beach House in Malibu

3 February 2017 3:39 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A Malibu beach house with “a lawn that stretched out to a fruit orchard bordered by a neighbor’s horse pasture” is not likely atop the list of places Beastie Boys fans would expect to find New York-bred rapper Mike D.

But that’s exactly where the Mc (born Michael Diamond), 51, has decamped to with his wife, Tamra, and teenage sons Davis and Skyler. (Before you call the No Sleep Till Brooklyn auteur a traitor to his coast, note he’s also had a series of townhouses in the borough as well as previous L.A. properties.)

I love Mike Judge. I mean, Beavis And Butt-head was my childhood. I remember staying up late at night watching them riff on 90s music videos (my favorites being the time they reminisced about the fake cop show in Beastie Boys' Sabotage video, or the time Beavis freaked out about that weird "The Bubblemen are Coming" video).
