    I met Adam a little over a year ago. O-Scope had picked up our film, Bellflower, and we were in NY doing some press well ahead of its release. They had invited us up to the office for pizza, beer and "game night". I had been there for an hour when this guy comes in, wearing a suit. He was skinny and had a long gray beard. He looked a little frail but his energy seemed good. He was carrying a small card table. No one else in the office approached him. He came up to me asked if I played Mahjong. I didn't, but we had a very nice and fun conversation about it for several minutes.

    I went to get another beer and only then did I realize I had been talking to Adam Yauch. He set up the table and soon found others to play Mahjong with. Later, I was talking with our director Evan and Adam came up and asked Evan if he could make a miniature flamethrower for a music video that he wanted to do. It was for "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win". Evan got really enthusiastic and he and Evan disappeared into the back where Adam had the GI Joes set up on a model.

    Later that night, I went up to Adam and asked if they were ever going to do Coachella again. He said, "No plans, no plans".

    He was genuinely a nice guy. Absolutely present and connected to the conversation, no ego involved. He took a chance on Bellflower and has given all of us associated with it a chance to move up in our careers.

    Now I regret not knowing how to play Mahjong. It would have been fun. RIP MCA.

    MCA's death still chokes me up. Paul's Boutique is, in my humble fucking opinion, the best hip-hop album ever made. One of those definite "it changed my life" records (or cassette, in my case). Seems like the Beasties have been a part of my life in one way or another since I was 12 years old.

    The end of "Nonstop Disco Powerpack" gets me all misty eyed every time I hear it.

    The Beastie Boys are suing Monster Energy Drink for using their music and names in promotional videos. This news comes immediately after the revelation that the late Adam "MCA" Yauch's will contained the following handwritten addition: "In no event may my image or name or any music or any artistic property created by me be used for advertising purposes."

    Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz and Yauch's estate were plaintiffs in the case. The suit claims the inclusion of the group's name and snippets from "Sabotage," "So Whatcha Want" and "Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun" -- which totaled over three minutes -- wrongfully gave the impression that the group gave permission for their use.

    The case was filed in New York. The videos in question were promotions for Ruckus in the Rockies, a Monster-sponsored event. Variety notes that penalties may be stiff, as the suit not only asks for an injunction but "statutory damages of $150,000 for each infringement of their works."

    A trusts and estates lawyer writing on Forbes.com cautioned that Yauch's addition his will may not be valid.

    "Yauch was likely making a statement to the world that life is about more than profit," writes Wendy Goffe. "He attempted to exercise control over his name, image and legacy in order to make that point. The sad irony is that Yauch’s heirs may desperately need that profit to pay the legal bills that result from his final act of defiance."
