A tribute

I woke up this morning to hear the sad news about Adam 'MCA' Yauch's passing after a 3 year battle with cancer.


I felt the only appropriate thing to do was put Paul's Boutique on the turntable, turn it up and enjoy one of the finest Hip-Hop albums ever released.


I'm not religious at all, and I'm not at all educated on the teachings of Buddhism, but I do think MCAs interpretation of Buddhism can teach anyone a lot.


From his song Bodhisattva Vow:


A Strength From Within To Go The Length

Seeing Others Are As Important As Myself

I Strive For A Happiness Of Mental Wealth

With The Interconnectedness That We Share As One

Every Action That We Take Affects Everyone

So In Deciding For What A Situation Calls

There Is A Path For The Good For All
