"she needs to get some Beastie tunes"

The following came from the December 3rd post at Mic to Mic, a site devoted to all things Beastie Boys. Seems my post about the Boys was discovered.

"Um, I'm sorry, what is your name?"

He gives me this big grin, as if saying that no one has said that to him in a long time.

"Adam Horovitz. I'm in the band."

Read A Soccer Mom in Denial's story of meeting the Beastie Boys in the early 90s. The story illustrates how special they are.

Posted by Hot Sauce.

Hot Sauce - thanks for finding me. And here are the six comments that this post generated (my replies are in italics).

I have new respect for the band. I was unaware they donated to help the blockades and make the clinics safe. Operation Rescue was a terrorist group that murdered women and doctors. I will never forget their reign of terror. Bless the Beastie Boys!

And you too, Danielle, for understanding the reign of terror inflicted by those, ahem, "pro-life" activists.

Saber said...
she remembers eating pasta & soda but can't remember the conversation she had with the boys???

Sorry to disappoint Saber.

Hot Sauce said...
You don't forget good pasta.

That is right!

Brody said...
Awwww, I like confirmations they're nice guys!! :)

Awwww I'm glad to give you confirmation Brody.

Kevin said...
Nice story but she needs to get some Beastie tunes.

Alright Kevin, what are your top five Beastie tunes? Just five.

Todd said...
Nice story but kind of a bummer that she wasn't a huge fan. I still spaz out whenever I tell somebody about the time I shared a newspaper with Mike D. at the car wash.

Todd, I couldn't agree more that the experience I describe was a wasted opportunity on someone like me. Good thing you didn't notice in my article the signed concert wall sign I can't seem to find.

Sigh. Music fans. Aren't they adorable? I mean, who would be so rabid about a music band to write about them constantly?

I mean who would?

[Note to self - see if erasurefanatic is available somewhere for a blog name. It's not like I have another blog.]

Wholly Burble said...

I'm sure you chose these six out of the many others who posted in response to that blog. I got quite a kick out of hearing their music, and probably wouldn't have except for your post LOL.

As far as fanatic LOL--I won't go into details, but haven't we all gone over-board for a musician(s)/band at some time in our lives? Come on now all you readers, let's get real ;-)

soccer mom in denial said...

PM - Yeah BABY!!

Wholly burble - actually, those are the ONLY six who responded. Apparently the Boys not being nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame generated more responses. Not sure why.....

Flower Child said...

Ooooh, I would so frequent the Erasure blog.

Heather said...

i used to LOVE erasure! i was supposed to see them in concert...a million years ago but, a snow storm kept my parents from letting me go. i've never forgiven them. i was never that into the beastie boys. sure, i danced to their rap songs at the night clubs but...never in the same way as i would when oh l'amor (sorry...spelling sucks) came on!
love the post...you famous chick, you!
btw...first time visiting here....

I've always found the Beastie Boys to be interesting and inventive. Plus they have awesome videos, which is a huge plus in my book. And I listened to them from time to time in high school.

But. I don't anymore. They are fun once in a while, but their style isn't something I am often in the mood for.

Jenn in Holland said...

hehe. You beastie blogger you!
That's a great discovery...

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

LOL! Those were sweet, somewhat desperate posts. But I know, had all of this been available in my teens/early 20s, I would have been on YES fan sites ALL the time.

I'm so jealous - it's a good thing I like you. :) Also, please start the Erasure blog - I promise to be your most loyal reader.

Why didn't you respond to the comments on the other blog? Those people will never see your comments here.
