BEASTIE BOYS - ALIVE

(Mike D)
“I have never been more ready in my entire life to do this right now.
Never. It’s all been leading up to this moment.
All right now, right here.
My whole life, right here….”

We got rhyme selections in a wide array
J’ai des bons bons pour vous mangez
The party people scream oui oui, c’est vrai
‘Cause I got a remote for my bidet

(Adrock)
A-d-r-o-c-k
I use the microphone like Picasso used clay
Down with freckles from around the way
Peace to Bambata and Jazzy Jay

(MCA)
I rock on the mic from here to Bombay
I give it my best and say come what may
‘Cause everybody’s got their dues to pay
I’m looking side ways like my man Pele

(Mike D)
Getting old like Ali boom ba yay
So fed up with racism today
Time to speak up and not turn away
Make the sun shine when it’s cloudy and gray

(chorus) Adrock
Dip dip dive so so socialize
Open up your ears and clean out your eyes
If you learn to love your in for a surprise
It could be nice to be alive

(Adrock)
I’m taking doody rhymes to a brand new height
I shine on the mic like UltraBright
Created a monster with these rhymes I write
Goatee metal rap please say goodnight

(MCA)
Now here’s a little something you may not like
My dj’s name is Mix Master Mike
It’s a real pity that you people got to bite
But I could understand because he sounds so nice

(Mike D)
Reading you the news cause I’m Country Mike
Use a microphone like Shazam uses tights
Try to keep clear of that hate and spite
So I keep my mind still like the still of night

(Adrock)
Now who in the world do you want to fight?
It’s agianst the system we should unite
Homophobics ain’t alright
If you learn to love then you might love life

(chorus) MCA
Dip dip dive so so socialize
Open up your ears and clean out your eyes
If you learn to love your in for a surprise
It could be nice to be alive

(MCA)
Now you can shuffle numbers but facts is facts
So many billionares while so many lack
So before the poor decide to react
Come on party people and share up your stacks

(Mike D)
Now I’m a break it down to the brass tacks
Do the Biz Mark dance and the cabbage patch
You try to turn the key but then you broke the latch
Sneak into my files for some rhymes to snatch

(Adrock)
I’d like to have a say on the income tax
Don’t wanna help build bombs and that’s the facts
No money for health care so what’s the catch?
The man got you locked with the keys to the latch

(MCA)
Mike and Adam have got my back
You bring the mics and we’ll bring the raps
Turn on the P.A. and rock your shack
Don’t smoke cheeba can’t stand crack

(chorus) Mike D
Dip dip dive so so socialize
Open up your ears and clean out your eyes
If you learn to love your in for a surprise
It could be nice to be alive

Rest In Peace Adam Nathaniel Yauch (August 5, 1964 – May 4, 2012), you were a constant Inspiration. Thank you.

This quiet dust was gentlemen and ladies
And lads and girls;
Was laughter and ability and sighing,
And frocks and curls;


This passive place a summer’s nimble mansion,
Where bloom and bees
Fulfilled their oriental circuit,
Then ceased like these.

Emily Dickinson
So live that when thy summons comes to join the innumerable caravan, which moves to that mysterious realm, where each shall take his chamber in the silent halls of death, thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night, scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave, like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.
William Cullen Bryant
The only effort of any intelligent person in this world aught to be to know something which can not be destroyed by death.
Buddha

nirvikalpa:

Marina Abramovic and her lover/collaborator Ulay performing “Death Self”. This performance consisted of the two artists seated in front of each other, connected at the mouth. They took in each other’s breaths until all of their available oxygen had been used up. The performance lasted only 17 minutes, resulting in both artists collapsing unconscious to the floor, having filled their lungs with carbon dioxide. This personal piece explored the idea of an individual’s ability to absorb the life of another person, exchanging and destroying it.
