beastie boys

This interview on Fresh Air is great: I love how the Beastie Boys (now well into their forties and settled down, more or less) talk about their past. They own up to—and are amused by—their crazy frat-boy "Fight for Your Right" stage (unintended, it turns out) but aren't above apologizing for it. They also speak very sweetly about their own artistic upbringing in 1970s and 80s New York, with engaged, creative parents.

So I tried watching this

but it just seems self-indulgent and overly long. (Elijah Wood cracks me up: Frodo as Ad-Rock. It kind of works.) Looks like they had a blast filming it, though.
