Records

A Brooklyn boy becomes a star

Beastie

Boys

Licensed To Ill
Def Jam

Riflin' one day through the
Daily files
I found a record that would
bring me smiles
Beastie Boys LP, their first
full album
A jolting shock to radio
pablum.
It's a crossover threat of great
proportions
By twisting old tunes into
new contortions.
I wuz weaned in the AOR
wasteland
Led Zeppelin riffs turn my
floor to quicksand
There's plenty of Zep all
over this wax
rFrom 'When the Levee
Breaks"'drums to "The Ocean"'s
axe.
War's "Low Rider" and
Sabbath's "Sweet Leaf'
Both get an injection of the
Beastie beef.
Steve Miller and salsa and
Schooly D.
Even old Mr. Ed's a casualty.
Bobby Fuller and Creedence
also get the mix
Just some of Rick Rubin's
studio tricks
(He's the mover behind rap's
new crunch
By adding metal guitar for a
rockin' punch)
Everyone knows robbery's a
crime
But to rip off is one thing, to
steal right, divine.'
Lyrics o.k., no great
sensation

It's the tough guitar that's the
innovation
Here's a rap record that shows
real smarts
Not just a bunch of kids
doing beatbox farts.
Sure they're obnoxious,
downright cocky,
But this vinyl sizzles like
teriyaki
Up on the grill or your
turntable
The Beasties' sound defies a
label
Is it rap with rock, or rock
with rap,
Or some new location on the
musical map?
Kickin' out a beat that
pounds and pounds
With a dose of humor to the
def new sounds.
All their favorite topics are
included here
White Castle burgers, girls,
guns, and beer.
Slipping their lip in between
the licks
Defining the sound of '86
So grab this sucker and crank
it loud
It's one sure way to draw a
crowd
Overall this is one fine long
player
(And now Def Jam has just
signed Slayer
Won't the PMRC be in for a
shock
When rap meets Satanic
nuclear meltdown rock?)
Mike Rubin

have good time. I respect those
people and I don't underestimate
those people. It doesn't mean those
people are all idiots; (they are)
doctors, lawyers, higher educated
people but sometimes you just
want a candy bar. Sometimes you
just want to go to the candy store.
and get a Snicker's Bar. You can't
always have pheasant under glass;
it's just not the way it is.
I really feel for critics who try to
review Police Academy and talk
about it just like James Beard, the
great gourmet, was going to crit-
ique an Oh Henry Bar. It's not
meant for that; it's just meant to
eat and go away and that's it.
And the people who like the
candy bars say, "Yeh, it was good.
What the fuck are you saying. What
the fuck are you talking about."
"Well, I thought the chocolate
was from a... "(mockingly)
"Who the fuck cares? I ate it and
it was gone."
The problem with film today is
that everyone takes it so god-damn
seriously. If they would read about
some of the masters. like Trouffeu
or Hitchcock, even Wier, people
would just say, "Hey, it's just a
fuckin' movie." I mean, some-
times, you just got to laugh. I
respect people who just want to
laugh.
D : Where do you picture
yourself in ten years?
G: I don't know, you know?
Things are so fucked up. I don't
know. I don't know. What do I
want to become? I'd like to have

the career of Jimmy Stewart or
Cary Grant. I would like to fave a
career as a leading man doing films
that work. If I'm not Clint

G: You got to do really good
movies. You got to do movies that
make a lot of money but you also
have to do movies that get some
critical acclaim.
D : I hear that you do
community service...
G: I do work for Amnesty
International and I also work for St.
Mary's hospital for children.
D: What kind of work do you do
there?
G: I promote the hospital and do
a lot of campaigns for them and I

also work with kids.
D: Do you do it for yourself or
for good publicity?
G: Well, it is a two way street
because I'm not doing it anon-
imously. I do it a) for the kids
'cause I really think that you got to
to give back, b) I do it for the
publicity of the hospital because
the hospital gets a lot of publiciy
out of it and 3) I think it looks
good for me and I feel good about
people knowing that I'm doing
something good.

Guttenberg
Eastwood, That's O.K..
D: What kind of movie do you
picture yourself in?
G: I picture myself in an action-
adventure movie. I'm young and if I
just stay healthy and I stay in good
attitude by the time I am 34 or 35,
I'll be one of the top eight guys
that you will have to go to for a
movie.
D: Are you worried about the
competition?
G: There's always competition.
I'll be happy if I'm in the top ten.
D: What do you think have to
do to get in this top ten?

STEAK HOAGIE SIN TOWN.
What would you do if you were a senior in college and needed extra money?
Get a job or start a business.
Mike Judge of Tally Hall's Steak Escape did both.
Nearly five years ago, Mike took a job in Ohio with the first Steak Escape store.
Today, he owns two franchises-with professionally trained staff at Tally Hall
and at Portside in Toledo.-
Whoever thought that a limited menu of cooked-to-order sandwiches and
hand-cut french fries would be so successful?

I was cruising with my blue-eyed
boy on the S.S. NACUFS when
the Pacific looked more like a
monsoon than a calm horizon by
the light of the moon.
Yes, it's true, Ramona, the Corner
Market Coffee Lady, saved a region
of the globe by enlisting the aid of'
a company of modern rain dancers.
Not since the times of stone
tablets has the world experienced an
earth parchment as great as in the
coffee fields of the Western
Hemisphere.

u may be asking yourself--" Did I

ever hear about a drought damaging
fields and beans?" Of course you
(didn't! Ramona came to the rescue!
I said--" What?, There's no coffee?
Then let them drink capuccino!"
And they did.
Like I always say, If you haven't
been to the Corner Market lately,
Honey, you haven't been to market!
