In the Beastie Boys’ anthology “The Sounds of Science,” Adam Horovitz wrote about “Song for the Man,” and how it was inspired by men he saw harassing a woman on the subway: “Sexism is deeply rooted in our history and society that waking up and stepping outside of it is like I’m watching ‘Night of the Living Dead Part Two’ all day every day. Listening to the lyrics of this song, one might say that the Beastie Boy ‘Fight for Your Right to Party’ guy is a hypocrite. Well, maybe; but in this fucked up world all you can hope for is change, and I’d rather be a hypocrite to you than a zombie forever.”

RIP Dick, you will be missed.
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS.
Late 70s/Early 80s Disco Prince LYING ABOUT HIS AGE (he is 22 at this time, not 19) and HOLDING UP HIS HAND WITH 4 FINGERS IN DICK CLARK’S FACE instead of actually speaking the number “4” and acting in general, like a shy toddler in hot pants.
This video made my day.
Trying to find a good reason to recreate this outfit (including that gloriously feathered mane). Maybe Halloween.
Jan and Stan — who passed away in 2005 — published the first Berenstain Bears book, The Big Honey Hunt, in 1962. They were encouraged and assisted by the head of Random House’s Beginner Books imprint, Theodor Geisel (better known as Dr. Seuss).
The couple went on to produce over 300 books in the series, and have those books translated into over 20 languages.
