HILLSBORO, Ore. — The small New England town of Blithe Hollow is more than a little odd; it's a wonderfully wonky world of Gremlin-like cars, wavy plaid shirts and irregular picket fences.

Why I'm Sad Today: Beastie Boys Co-Founder Adam Yauch Dead at 48

Why I'm Sad Today: Beastie Boys Co-Founder Adam Yauch Dead at 48 | ShezCrafti | Scoop.it

Adam Yauch, one-third of the pioneering hip-hop group the Beastie Boys, has died at the age of 48, Rolling Stone has learned. Yauch, also known as MCA, had been in treatment for cancer since 2009. The rapper was diagnosed in 2009 after discovering a tumor in his salivary gland.

 

Yauch sat out the Beastie Boys' induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April, and his treatments delayed the release of the group's most recent album, Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2. The Beastie Boys had not performed live since the summer of 2009, and Yauch's illness prevented the group from appearing in music videos for Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2.

 

Yauch co-founded the Beastie Boys with Mike "Mike D" Diamond and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horowitz in 1979. The band started off as a hardcore punk group, but soon began experimenting with hip-hop. The band broke big with their first proper album, Licensed to Ill, in 1986, and further albums Paul's Boutique, Check Your Head and Ill Communication cemented the band as a true superstar act.

 

In addition to his career with the Beastie Boys, Yauch was heavily involved in the movement to free Tibet and co-organized the Tibetan Freedom Concerts of the late Nineties. In 2002, he launched the film production company Oscilloscope Laboratories.

Ni No Kuni, a collaboration between RPG powerhouse Level-5 and animation wizards Studio Ghibli, is not only one of the prettiest video games I've ever seen, but also one of the more enjoyable, at least on the PS3. It's very sad news, then, that the game's Western release has been delayed.

10 Great Mr. Show Commercial Parodies | ShezCrafti | Scoop.it

During its run on HBO from 1995-1998, Mr. Show not only pumped out countless hilarious sketches (see "Titannica" or "The Story of Everest"), but it also threaded each episode together stream-of-consciousness style, coasting from bit to bit via loopy tangents, transitions, and non sequitur cutaways that solved the issue of ending sketches by tying them together thematically.

Remix Artist Collective: Nintendo VS SEGA EP – GEARFUSE

Remix Artist Collective: Nintendo VS SEGA EP – GEARFUSE | ShezCrafti | Scoop.it

I was browsing one of my private torrent sites today when I came across this torrent called “Nintendo VS SEGA EP” from the Remix Artist Collective or RAC. The album features four tracks consisting of classic Nintendo remixes. All your favorites are here: Link, Mario and Sonic. It’s pretty decent dance music and would go over well at the Maker Faire I’d imagine. Or Crobar Miami. Whichever is up your alley.
