So sad to hear that Adam Yauch (a.k.a MCA, a.k.a Nathaniel Hornblower) - Beastie Boys rapper and bass player - passed away Friday ... at only 47 years old.

I have been a fan since Licence To Ill came out in '86 - they were definitely a revelation - white boys making hiphop ... and FUN too.  MCA always came across as the thoughtful/serious member of the trio, and his later work for the Free Tibet movement and foundation of the Milarepa Foundation backed that up.
Here's one of his finer moments of video directing ... and (of course) starring.

And a blast from the distant and hilarious past ...

Anyway - sad that we've lost him ... thanks MCA.
