Oh, I love my Beastie Boys

All day long, I keep having Beastie Boys lyrics running through my head. I think it has something to do about my impending trip to New York, LOL. Like, I'm walking down the street and

Jazz and Awol that's our team
Step inside the party disrupt the whole scene
When it comes to beats well I'm a fiend
I like my sugar with coffee and cream
Got to keep it going keep it going full steam
Too sweet to be sour too nice to be mean


I *love* their Hello Nasty album -- loved in college, still love it. Their rhymes on that just KILL me. Examples:

Sometimes I like to brag sometimes I'm soft spoken
When I'm in Holland I eat the pannenkoeken


I don't mean to brag I don't mean to boast
But I'm intercontinental when I eat french toast


Dogs love me cause I'm crazy sniffable
I bet you never knew I got the ill peripheral


If you try to knock me you'll get mocked
I'll stir fry you in my wok
Your knees'll start shaking and your fingers pop
Like a pinch on the neck of Mr. Spock


Sweet and sour like a tangerine
Fresh like a box of Krispy Kremes


What's especially kick-ass about the lyrics on this is how they basically will go for a good 20+ lines with every line rhyming (the "Mr. Spock" line quote about comes from a section like that). It's like a super rapper challenge. My friends found it annoying when it came out, cause it was kind of extreme, but I just find it hopelessly, hilariously clever.

P.S. I'm feeling the effects of a huge "Mocha Delite" from the coffeeshop across the street. It's very GOOD effect! Around 3:30 I (who hates naps) actually konked out on my bed for a 1/2 hour, I was feeling so sleepy. But then I woke up and ran to get this treat and BOOM! I managed to finish my MG marketing brochure (put off for 3 months!) and get into a genuinely good mood!
