Posted this in the other thread:

If you go to the link on the back of the book from the video they have a post with the Ad-Rock's Danceteria playlist: https://fabersocial.co.uk/2018/10/11...eria-playlist/

Also, if you're a huge geek like me and just can't wait for the book, you can adjust the speed of the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2de-Gu0ekmg
by going into the playback settings. This slows the flipping of the pages and you can pause it to read the table of contents and a bit of the book too!

My only problem is going to be skipping to 2007 to start learning new things, and also reading about the final years. Iím sure the whole thing will be an interesting read with their inimitable style, though.

Re: beastie book (spoilers)
 
one can imagine there will be plenty of new stimulating anecdotes to enjoy from pre-2007

Sabotage as a traditional rap song was a decent wrinkle to a well-known yarn, to be fair.

going to compile more spoilers here from other threads, just to keep it organized.

And also as Brother Mc D mentioned Amazon's inside look: https://www.amazon.ca/Beastie-Boys-B...stie+boys+book

A few more little snippets in the NY post: https://nypost.com/2018/10/21/the-be...-for-30-years/

For the record the Guardian / Observer excerpt posted above is fucking excellent.

Hard to complain with such a list that goes above and beyond but, in addition to Hurra, I find Mario Cís absence glaring.

Thanks for posting this, a great teaser. I'm freaking out this is going to be so awesome. Also pretty teary eyed listening to that. Can't wait for Tuesday, heading to Brooklyn from Toronto. Psyched!

I meant teared up, not tested up.

Great to see that audiobook list of contributors.
Not sure why Amy poehler has been the headlining contributor when there are so many more relevant and appropriate contributors than her .

Im impatiently waiting for the KingsRoad merch official bboys store preorder to eventually come. I should have just walked in to a book store, I was hoping it would arrive the day the book came out. Also the book costs 32.00 on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and the official store is 49.99, does that seem right?

Re: beastie book (spoilers)
 
Do I just read it or actually listen to it?
