The Book on T.S.C., Ep. 21

July 4th, 2011

Talkin' to Marcus Thompson, the man who not only founded Timex Social Club (former Beastie Boys tour-mates), but wrote the book on them:

On The Road With Z-Trip, Ep. 20

May 4th, 2011

Many thanks to Michael Love (Beastiemania) for serving us up an interview with DJ Z-Trip. And many thanks to Z-Trip for guiding us through his new Beasite Boys Megamix while driving on the highway in San Diego (worry not, Z-Trip was rockin' the bluetooth).

(Below: What's the perk of having both a Beastie Boys and Z-Trip tattoo on your left arm? Getting to be the cover boy for Z-Trip's new Beasite Boys Megamix, duh.)

Hot Sauce Commentary, Ep. 19

May 3rd, 2011

Jim (left) and Prof D (right) form their own committee to oversee the Hot Sauce Committee (which was finally, and triumphantly released today!):

Release Days, Rodie & Mike Nishita, Ep. 18

April 20th, 2011

Just as mysterious (and glorious) as a yeti-sighting, we track down Mike Nishita, brother of Keyboard Money Mark.

And later, it's Jim's turn to take the Twenty Questions quiz as Rodie plays master griller:


(Above: After scouring the internet, this rare photo from Beastiemania is the only one we could find of the elusive Mike Nishita.)

Makin' some noise about the brand new Beastie Boys' single, "Make Some Noise" (with a special guest):

Start ‘Em Off Young

March 8th, 2011

Imagine my excitement when I saw this at Border's!  Alas, this children's book has nothing to do with the Beatie Boys, but you don't have to tell your kids that.  (If the Beastie Boys were pricks, I'm sure all they'd have to do is file a few papers with their lawyer to have this book taken off the shelf.)


Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame

March 8th, 2011

I was at the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame this weekend, and this was the only Beastie artifact I came across: Mike D's goggles and dish gloves from the "Intergalactic" video.  (It looks like Mike's gloves suffered some collateral damage from the robot/giant-space-squid fight.)


I also came across this: Chuck D's original sketch for Public Enemy's logo. Part of me thinks it would be cooler if it was just sitting in a junk drawer somewhere in Long Island.


Smack My Beach Up, Ep. 16

March 2nd, 2011

DJ Katanga drops by to talk about Beastie Boys party jams and why he's still angry about the whole Prodigy/"Smack My Bitch Up" drama of the late '90s.

Then, message board legend, Laver1969, flexes his B-Boy muscle and gives 20 Questions a whirl:
