Michael in a hammock; Beastie Boys sadness

Happy Birthday drusplace! Hope you've been enjoying the sun!

fruitbat00 posted a link to this interview about Michael's short film "Ghild". Lots of Michael-talk & photos! Link

Very saddened by the passing of Adam Yauch. When the Beastie Boys first came up, I wasn't a huge fan. I mildly liked "Fight for your right" but it didn't rank with RUN-DMC for me. "Paul's Boutique" changed that. They'd moved to a whole new level lyrically & artistically and from then on I was a huge fan. Shadrach might still be my favourite song but I can still remember hearing Sureshot for the first time, with this lyric jumping out: "I want to say a little something that's long overdue....this disrespecting women has got to be through. To all the Mothers & Sisters & the Wives & Friends. I Want to offer my Love And Respect to the end."

After wrapping his movie & filming an appearance on Breaking In, Michael headed to Mexico for a holiday. Wish this photo showed a closer view but he looks tranquil & sexy in his hammock!
