Paul's Boutique

A good read over at Big Hollywood on the Beastie Boys second album 'Paul's Boutique' by Cam Cannon.

As many of you know, and as many can guess (hint, my web site address,, I am a big B-boys fan. This is the album that started it all for me.

Way back, when I was in the ninth grade, the Beasties first album, 'License to Ill' was all the rage. "Fight for Your Right", "No Sleep 'till Brooklyn", "Paul Revere". Guys walking around with stolen VW logos around their neck. I hated it, thought it was sillyness. Since, I have learned to like it, but it isn't even in the top five of my favorite Bboy albums.

Then I saw this video...

Oh yeah, that's the stuff! The album was all over the place, and I mean that in a good way. You had '5-Piece Chicken Dinner' to 'Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun' to the 'Shake Your Rump' and everything in between.

My favorite was 'B-Boy Bouillabaisse', a collection of a bunch of shorts at the end. Here is a taste, 'A Year and a Day'

Nice time lapse by the YouTube poster BTW.

Many hours have been spent with this on eleven, and I see no end in sight.

Now, I'm off to mix the Bass Ale with the Guinness Stout out with the guys. Later!

500th post!!
