Beastie Boys @ Union Square
Audience: That was fuckin awesome.
[More applause]
Audience: That was fuckin awesome.
[More applause]
Yauch: Is, uh, Michael and Remy here?
A: Yea, right here.
Y: I think that some of the people that worked on the film are here.
Adrock: Anyway, what are we doing, like a Q&A thing?
BB: Shoot, the woman in the balcony.
A: How did you pick the folks that were filming you?
Y: Uh, through the Ethernet cable.
A: Where did you shoot that film at the beginning in Brooklyn? Where?
Rock: What? What's that?
[Audience groans, as the film was obviously should over the Hudson Bay and Manhattan]
Rock: It comes over the Statue of Liberty. I guess it's kinda near Brooklyn.
A: Who came up with the Blowhorn featurette? [silence, presumably because, again the audience member got it wrong - the name's Hornblower] Nathaniel Blowhorn?
Y: Oh, that dude? Uh, I don't know.
[Audience grumbles]
A: Or Hornblower, I'm sorry.
Y: Whatever. Actually, a lot of that, all of the dialogue was pretty much improvised. We came up with the ideas for that the scenes were gonna be, mostly, but then it's all kinda wingin it. We shot that thing in a day and a half.
A: Yo Adrock, how was it being on the stage at Madison Square Garden?
Rock: It was all right.
Rock: It was a dream come true, for real.
A: We loved it.
A: Yea.
Rock: Cause I didn't actually make the cut for the Knicks when I was younger.
A: When's the next show?
B: What?
Y: It's Michael.
Mike D: Michael Rappaport?
Y: No, Michael Boczon [film editing, visual effects].
D: Michael stand up. Take a bow.
B: Ken Anderson, John Silberberg [camera op]…
B: John Wiener [sound editor], all the Think Film people.
A: Did you guys really return all the cameras, give all the cameras back?
[many 'whats' and groans]
B: We did, yes, that is true.
A: When are you playing in New York again?
[Many 'yeas']
A: Tonight!
[Yeas, laughs]
A: When's Quasar playing?
[Much shouting]
Y: Just shut up. Jesus Christ.
A: Let's get a beer!
A: Yea.
B: This is completely unruly. There's supposed to be a moderator here.
Rock: Next question.
A: [heavy accent] When are you coming to Belgium?
D: What are we talking about, Belgium?
Rock: You right there…Couldn't hear you, what was that?
A: How long did all the editing take?
Rock: Oh shit. About a year.
Y: About a year of post, after the concert.
B: Enunciate, in the back row.
B: in the very last row. The lady with the hand up.
A: Hi, I just want to say thank you guys for being so honest [and keeping it real].
A: Adrock, are you still married?
Rock: Yea, I am.
[Question about Mahjong (they each wore t-shirts inscribed with board games at one point during the film)]
B: I do play Mahjong.
A: You got a game going?
B: What's the stakes? Or do you just play for pride? Just for points?
A: What's 'Critter'?
Rock: Critter is a game played with double-12 dominoes.
B: And little critters
Rock: And little critters, cause, you know…
Rock: It's a domino game and you have these little critters that have nothing to do with the game, but you can have a little critter just to have it. [laughs]. You could use, like you could use a penny, or a quarter. You don't have to use a critter. But if you can't play a tile, like on the train or on your own train, then you gotta put your critter up. And then, when that happens, people can play on your train. And that gets nasty. [Laughs] And when there's a double, then you have sex on the train and you blow the whistle. Get raunchy. … okay…
B: The man in the balcony.
[two people speak. confusion]
B: Balcony!
B: What happened?
A: Let's play 2 on 2. Mike D and Adrock.
Rock: You are gonna play just one against two? Or two against two?
A: Right here. Two on two.
Rock: Let's go. [Mike D, I believe, made a quiet comment here about how 'it's a good thing we got a basketball in the van.']
A: Whatsup with Sasquatch?
B: Sasquatch is dead.
A: What's up with the di-vi-deez?

    they didn't seem to answer any of the questions in detail:
    A: "What's your favorite song?"
    BB: "There are a lot of great songs out there."
    A: "What's on your iPod?"
    BB: "I gotta a lot of stuff, and some movies too."
    A: "Who do you like in hip-hop today?"
    BB: "There are a lot talented artists out there today."

    I just don't understand why they can't give any details. Its pretty annoying. BTW - those weren't direct quotes, I abbreviated to give the jist).
