I know this was in yesterday's music news post, but I just wanted to say happy one-year afterlife anniversary to Adam Yauch. If you didn't happen to click through, yesterday they dedicated a park to him in New York City, and his mom spoke at the dedication.
"We didn't have anything to do with the crazy part of Adam Yauch," she started, laughing. "He brought that all by himself." Later in the speech, she tells the crowd that after his death and the ensuing "worldwide outpouring of admiration," friends told her, "We didn't know your son was so famous!" And she says, "We didn't know it either."
If you're sitting across from me at this cafe, sorry I'm crying. I'll be okay, promise.
Today, people gathered in Brooklyn to celebrate this first anniversary of his death, which they're calling MCA Day. I hope it went well. I'm spending the rest of this fine sunny day celebrating...
