Ben Savage, my hero.
Without the benefit of 3D, it’s gonna be tough for The Dark Knight Rises to beat these guys…
RIP Adam “MCA” Yauch. This is the August 6, 1998 cover story where we explore how three punk-rock wiseguys from New York made some records, changed America and built an empire of cool.
Here is an excerpt where they shared how they register at their hotels, as they were about to embark on their first tour in three years.
And Adam “MCA” YAUCH – the spiritual seeker – what of him? He registers under the name I. Clouseau, as in Inspector Clouseau, for he is a huge Peter Sellers fan. His favorite Sellers movie is The Party. “He plays an Indian actor,” Yauch says, “and the movie was banned in India because he is playing this bumbling idiot in the middle of all these white people, and some Indian people were insulted by it. But the irony is that he’s really the only intelligent person there – all the other people are morons. So it has a cool theme.”
streeter:NYC and a little Boston not as bad though
I’d like to launch an awareness campaign aimed at rude New Yorkers, written in a style they’ll understand, so that one day, maybe, they won’t be quite so shitty.
I should note that most New Yorkers are completely wonderful, caring people. It’s just that some of us seem to enjoy the “New Yorkers are assholes” thing a bit too much.
