I saw that in the paper but was waiting for Donn to do his thing.

You know you're getting old when the folks you 'grew up with' start kicking the can.

Me too.

One learns something new everyday:

Ironically, the song, written by band friend Tom "Tommy Triphammer" Cushman (who appears in the video), was intended as a parody of party and attitude songs, such as "Smokin' in the Boys Room (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokin%27_in_the_Boys_Room)" and "I Wanna Rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Wanna_Rock)".[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)] However, the irony was lost on most listeners. Mike D (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_D) commented that, "The only thing that upsets me is that we might have reinforced certain values of some people in our audience when our own values were actually totally different. There were tons of guys singing along to 'Fight for Your Right' who were oblivious to the fact it was a total goof on them."...
Despite probably being the group's most famous song, the Beastie Boys have expressed distaste for it....

The group has not performed the song live since 1987.

Tonight, he sleeps in Brooklyn ---

When my kids first brought the BBs into our house, I hated them -- rap crap I said.

After I actually listened to them, this old phart came to like them very much..

A sad day
