If you are familiar with my blog, then you know I live for sarcasm—especially when celebrities are involved. However, this week, I'd like to get serious. Last Friday, Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch (aka MCA) passed away after a three-year battle with cancer of the parotid salivary gland. He was only 47.
In 1996, I was a sophomore in high school. Of course I thought I knew everything about…well, everything. Actually, that’s not entirely true. After giving it two minutes, I recalled something I didn’t understand back then and, admittedly, I still don’t understand it to this day. Of course, I’m talking about the lyrics to “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls (you know…girl power and all of that).
