Beastie Boy Adam Yauch (that's MCA to you) says you got to fight for your right... to make movies?

Yauch has finally stepped out of Nathaniel Hornblower's shadow and started making movies for himself.

MCA makes me feel old.

"They put pretty pictures of springs and forests on the bottles, but in this movie they're getting called out. I think it's great. They lock down water as a commodity they can buy and sell. It's terrifying."

But when you add vitamins to water, it's kind of profitable.

Vitamin Water try it!

It's good he's bringing up the Bottled Water topic. More power to him.

In other news: Adam Yauch is the worst interview subject ever.

Q: [regarding the upcoming beastie's album] What can we expect?

A: You know, some music and rhymes and what not.

It pointed out that Hornblower was quite exceptional in attaining flag rank.

Last weekend, a top female rep for Nestlé pitched a fit at the Nantucket Film Festival, which Nestlé co-sponsored, during a screening of "Flow" - a documentary bashing Nestlé Waters as harming the environment.

Um.....

Haha, I actually had no idea he went by "Cochise." I guess I'm more connected to him than I knew...

I know what you're thinking, regicide is good for you. You're thinking "that's a pretty fucked up way to characterize her, isn't it? what the hell kind of publication is this?" You're totally right. It's the New York Post. It's the Fox News of newspapers, and people only read it because it costs a quarter. It is the worst publication in the country. That comment isn't even that bad compared to virtually everything else they write. It is toilet paper with ink smeared on it that only happens to resemble letters and pictures.

Not only that, but you write the same songs and make the same movies and spam the same websites!

Adam Yauch was actually first credited as director for Awesome; I Fuckin' Shot That! (although the tagline was "Finally, Hörnblowér is taking back what's his.").

The real MCA wouldn't have made that mistake. Unless it's deliberate, to throw us off the scent of MeFi's first celebrity self-linker.

Quick on the draw, I thought I'd be dead
He put the gun to my head and this is what he said,

"Now my name is MCA, I've got a license to kill
I think you know what time it is, it's time to get ill
Now what do we have here, an outlaw and his beer
I run this land, you understand, I make myself clear."
