A Beastie Boy Has Cancer

The Beastie Boys have recently announced that founding member, Adam "MCA" Yauch is suffering from cancer. In a video announcement, Yauch reveals that he noticed a lump in his throat, which, rather than being an indication of pent up pathos, has instead turned out to be a tumour.

I've got fond memories of the group. Back when I was in eighth grade, our school newspaper voted "Licensed To Ill" as album of the year. Our faculty advisor (and, thus, editor) refused to run the album as titled and insisted that it be referred to as "Licensed To Be Ill". It was one of those rare albums where every track was a solid one.

Still, I can't help but poke a little fun at the poor guy. This is, after all, The Virtual Sink. It's what we do.

"Now, my name is MCA, I got a license to kill. I think you know what time it is, it's time to get ill (with Cancer)".

"You gotta fight.....for your right......to recover from Cancer".

Okay, I think that's enough. Feel free to leave your own.
