A Thank You Letter To The Beastie Boys
11 February 2003 | by (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

Thank you for being the creative geniuses that you are.

Thank you for being my first DVD on Criterion.

Thank you for Intergalactic's spin-off, "The Robot vs. The octopus Monster Saga".

Thank you for including 2 discs and a reason never to leave my room again.

Thank you for License to Ill, Paul's Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication, and all the other albums resulting from them.

Thank you for making my ears purr with delight listening to the many remixes by way-too-many DJ's to list.

Thank you for the out-takes on 'Body Movin' that were a scream.

Thank you for choosing Nathan Hornblower, Adam Bernstein, Evan Bernard, Tamra Davis, Ari Marcopoulos and David Perez to direct your videos, as well as Spike Jonze's commentary on the supplemental materials.

And thank you for the storyboards, the double-sided poster, photographs and subtitles to rap-along

In other words, thank you for this anthology and for allowing me to enjoy it.
