    Awww, the happy birthday video is nice! I really wish I could have gone to Boston, but I committed to the Virgin Festival before they announced the Boston dates.

    is that yauch's daughter?

    11:55 AM Danielle said...

    Yes, she is Yauch's daughter.

    The show was probably very special. I wish I could have gone.

    I think the Biz Vs the Nudge was in there somewhere, perhaps before Time For Livin as it is on the album

    Jimmy James was definitely the highlight for me.
    Song for the Man left something to be desired without the fantastic horns in the studio version, making clear that Ad Rock wasn't meant to be a singer.

    For all you new yorkers going to the Gala tonight, the BBoys said Boston was the best dressed crowd they'd seen so far.
    There was a dude there dressed full out in a kilt, and i actually saw him again at the brooklyn show. sadly, no kilt this time.
