Inside the Beastie Boys’ Wild, Moving Memoir

Inside the Beastie Boys’ Wild, Moving Memoir
Michael Diamond was driving in California the other day, just a nudge past the legal speed limit, when he got pulled over. “So the officer goes, ‘My son is eight years old. He was just listening to “Brass Monkey” and “Intergalactic” this morning!'” He pauses for the punchline. “Still gave me the ticket, though.”

Adam Horovitz, sitting next to him, smirks. “Yeah, he listened to it and he hated it!”

The two old friends – known to three generations of fans as Mike D and Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys

‘The House That Yauch Built’: Oscilloscope Launches Interactive Experience Honoring Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch

Many know him as McA of Beastie Boys fame, but Adam Yauch was a multi-disciplinary artist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist with an eclectic range of interests and projects throughout his too-short life. (Yauch died in 2012 at the age of 47.) In addition to his musical legacy, he left a profound creative footprint across various industries: He founded the film production and distribution company Oscilloscope Laboratories in 2008, directed films and music videos, and was a practicing Buddhist who founded Milarepa, a non-profit organization dedicated to Tibetan independence.

Oscilloscope announced today a collaboration with Red Bull Music Academy and MediaMonks to create “The House That Yauch Built,” an interactive online experience highlighting Yauch’s musical, cinematic, cultural, and philanthropic achievements.

According to the official description: “Triggered by the recent relocation of Oscilloscope Laboratories’ original, legendary Canal Street Studio and office, ‘The House That Yauch Built‘ is a digital journey that will allow fans to

Camden John might join a boy band someday, but his path looks like it may be a little different from his dad’s.

The adorable 5-year-old son of 98 Degrees frontman Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa looked like the next Beastie Boys member in a photo his mama shared to her Instagram account Tuesday.

Looking quite the edgy youngster in a gold chain, skull necklace and red baseball cap, Camden threw up a peace sign and pursed his lips for the full Mike D, Ad-Rock and Adam Yauch effect.

Slow Sundance Sales Bring the Festival Back to Its Roots, As Filmmakers Contemplate the Future

Stop the presses! The latest Sundance Film Festival contained few late-night, seven-figure sales for potentially commercial movies. Clearly, something disastrous has happened to the movie industry when major companies avoided making huge business decisions within the confines of a hectic and snowy 10-day window. At least, that’s the popular narrative that a slow Sundance market tends to invite, and it’s an industry perception as a whole. As consumer habits and delivery methods continue to evolve, and the culture undergoes radical shifts in the stories it tells, both the market and the movies are moving in a million directions at once.

‘Assholes’ Director Peter Vack Made the Most Disgusting Movie Ever With ‘Recycled Amazon Money’

‘Assholes’ Director Peter Vack Made the Most Disgusting Movie Ever With ‘Recycled Amazon Money’
When Peter Vack scored a role over the summer playing Lola Kirke’s boyfriend on the Amazon series “Mozart in the Jungle,” he used the money to direct his first feature. The actor had scored in dozens of low-budget projects and directed a short film a few years earlier, but he had reason to believe nobody else was going to back his feature-length debut.

Just imagine the first sentence of the pitch,” said Vack, over lunch at Soho House. “‘It’s about two people who share an anal fetish, and I’m thinking of my sister to play the lead.’ I knew this particular endeavor was not something I’d be able to find investors for.”

The movie, by the way, was called “Assholes.” It premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, where it won the inaugural Adam Yauch Hornblower Award (a prize reserved for unique filmmaking visions); it also jolted audiences and critics alike,

‘Assholes’ Trailer: Nothing Can Prepare You for One of the Grossest Films in Movie History
For anyone complaining that Darren Aronofsky’s “mother!” takes things too far, just wait until “Assholes” hits theaters next month. Peter Vack’s directorial debut is the very definition of gross-out comedy; in fact, it takes the word “gross-out” to unthinkably disgusting new extremes. The film premiered at SXSW earlier this year, where it won the inaugural Adam Yauch Hörnblowér Award.

The official synopsis reads: “Adah and Aaron are recovering addicts who are struggling to stay sober. After meeting in their psychoanalyst’s waiting room, they fall in love, relapse on poppers, and become the biggest assholes in New York City.”

The Top Uses of Beastie Boys Songs in Movies

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

Sesame Street Comes For Spike Jonze With This Remake of Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ — Watch

Sesame Street Comes For Spike Jonze With This Remake of Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ — Watch
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.”

The original video was directed by none other than Spike Jonze, and this cheeky update follows that one pretty faithfully. Opening with Big Bird on the run in a cornfield, and ending with him lost in a parade, Big Bird’s round eyes and bumbling gait fit fit perfectly with the song’s distorted guitar riffs. Jonze’s original video payed homage to the television crime dramas of the 1970s,

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Team Up for a Tandem Bike Ride in the Hamptons

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Team Up for a Tandem Bike Ride in the Hamptons
Justin Timberlake rode a tandem bike through the Hamptons during Memorial Day weekend — but wife Jessica Biel wasn’t his cycle partner.

Pal Jimmy Fallon instead joined the 36-year-old “Can’t Stop The Feeling” singer for some holiday weekend “bro-biking,” which they captured for Timberlake’s Instagram.

“God! Just biking through the Hamptons. It’s so beautiful,” Timberlake says as he ramps up his bike whistle. Then, Fallon appears in the background, shouting “bro-biking” — and Timberlake joins in the chant.

The clip zooms out to show the buds zipping around on a quiet street, Fallon still taking up the rear.
