The Beastie Boys, Triple Trouble, 3 Times

Posted in The Beastie Boys, Youtube Favs on August 27th, 2011 by Willie

After I saw that Bored to Death trailer that featured the boys going crazy on Coney Island to the Beastie Boys song Triple Trouble, I myself, have gone crazy, seeking this song out in all its forms.  So, that’s what I’ve done, finding three killer performances of the song on youtube.  The song, which samples heavily from rap’s first song, “Rapper’s Delight” by the Sugarhill Gang, is just one of the catchiest things I’ve ever heard.  I love the sped up version the best, performed on MTV in 2004.  They absolutely kill it.  The second performance is from AOL’s live sessions, and is just a perfect display of their rap mastery.  The third performance is the music video itself.  I really like it, but the song doesn’t start until about a minute and a half into it.  It features some bizarre story about the Beasties making a fashion statement at an awards show, before Big Foot comes to fight and dance with them.  I hope you enjoy this incredibly funky and fresh cut.  And just in case you like it as much as I do, don’t forget to vote for me in the CBS’s Best NYC Blogger Contest, in which I am a finalist.  Just click these words!  Thanks!

Bored To Death Season 3 Trailer!

Posted in Fun and Crazy, The Beastie Boys, Youtube Favs on August 17th, 2011 by Willie

The trailer for “Bored to Death” season 3 just came out, and of course, its awesome.  I have an incredibly soft spot for this show.  For starters, I live in Park Slope, Brooklyn, the predominant location of the show’s adventures.  Next, I love detective comedies, long story there.  Lastly, the cast is brilliant and the show high brow and hilarious.  That’s two or three things, but whose counting?  Anyway, the season 3 trailer is just Ted, Jason, and Zach gallivanting around Coney Island to the Beastie Boys “Triple Trouble.”  If this doesn’t make you happy, I want you to stop reading my site.  Well…read my site less, or just read it the same amount, but respectfully disagree with me on the subject of liking this show.  BORED TO DEATH!!!!

The Beastie Boys Feat. The Roots, "So What'cha Want" Live On Jimmy Fallon

Posted in The Beastie Boys, The Roots, Youtube Favs on July 6th, 2011 by Willie

It’s the Beastie Boys, its the Roots, and they’re performing “So What’cha Want” LIVE!  Well, it was live, on the Jimmy Fallon show not too long ago.  This is an awesome clip of Mike D, Ad-Rock, and MCA killing their classic hit single from their 1992 LP Check Your Head.  I’ve always like the Beasties, but never really delved head first into their records until recently.  I appreciate their aggressive 3 pronged vocal attack, recording creativity, and their general subversive attitude they interject into the mass culture.  They are three radical uncompromising artists who command a massive fan base which is an impressive feat in today’s sell out sort of world.  This is a flawless performance showcasing their rock solid vitality, an amazing feat in itself for any group that’s been together as long as they have…
