                    • So incredibly saddened about Adam Yauch. I too grew up with the Beasties, took me through hs and college back in the day and have always remained a fan. What a horrible loss. His creativity, politics and humor will be greatly missed.
                      He, and the others, were deeply influenced by the Clash, something I of course appreciate very much.

                            The Santa Clara County Coroner released details of famed-artist Thomas Kinkade's autopsy and found that he died of "acute ethanol and Diazepam intoxication."

                            In layman's terms, he died of an overdose of alcohol and valium.
