Mike D at the Jivamukti Yoga Center opening
Is that a wig?
So what happened this grand month of May in Beastieboysland? Not much. Yoga devotee Mike Diamond made an appearance at the opening of the Jivamukti Yoga Center at Union Square on May 18. The New York Observer reported that Mr. Diamond "skeptically watched a yogini contort her body" at the event, while the Beastie Boys ol' buddy Russell Simmons, who was also in attendance, admitted to the press that he got into yoga because there were so many hot girls doing it. Ick.
Earlier in the month, Adam Yauch was sighted appreciating art at the Dia:Beacon in Beacon, New York. Who knew he had interests beyond Xbox?
Adam Horovitz has been up to stuff too, but it's a secret.
In the media: Coming to the party a litle late, Popmatters.com published an interview with the band, talking about Awesome; I Fuckin' Shot That! (Shout-out to Nick). . . What fans will find on the Awesome dvd was spelled out in a press release distributed by the film company last week. The dvd will have more than two hours worth of special features, including band commentary, alternate angles from the HD cameras (i.e., the non-fan cameras), acappella vocal tracks, a "Hidden Detours" feature that allows the viewer to see extra footage shot by the fan camera operators, A Day in the Life of Nathanial Hornblower short film, Pageant Tour intros and shout-outs, and the movie trailer. . . The British press, including NME, have begun reporting on the premiere of Awesome in England. At this point, nobody is saying anything about the band making an appearance in England; however, I'm going to predict that they will be representing in Londontown.
