Adam Horovitz, I take a shvitz Funky Donkey by Beastie Boys

Yiddish Alert

In Yiddish, schvitz literally means, “sweat”, though its connotation is multi-faceted. The act of schvitzing may be done in a bathhouse or wet/dry sauna, and has several health benefits: cleansing pores, softening skin, and temporairly lowering blood presure. Because it reduces water retention, professional fighters are known to schvitz to help make weight for a fight. To complete the process, you douse yourself in ice cold water immediately upon exit, and repeat…

Finger lickin', finger lickin' good, y'all Finger Lickin' Good by Beastie Boys (Ft. Drew Lawrence & Mark Nishita)

The Col. gets screwed

By 1964, KFC had more than 600 franchises in both the US & Canada — too big an operation for Col. Sanders to manage. A group of investors, headed by John Y. Brown, Jr. and Jack C. Massey, wanted to oust the Colonel, but knew he was temperamental and relied on astrological horoscopes for guidance. Massey and Brown “waited until Sanders had a particularly positive and dramatic horoscope” before entering his office with a definitive written offer:

‘Sanders looked at the figure, opened up his drawer, read his horoscope, and agreed to sell … the entire KFC franchising operation in 1964 for $2 million.’ The sale included a lifetime salary and the agreement that he would be the company’s quality controller and trademark…

Not long after, Sanders realized he’d been screwed, telling the Washington Post, “I don’t like some of the things John Y. done to me. Let the record speak for itself. He over-persuaded me to get out.”

It's finger lickin', finger lickin' good, y'all Finger Lickin' Good by Beastie Boys (Ft. Drew Lawrence & Mark Nishita)

One of Harland Sanders’s big innovations came in 1939, when he altered his cooking process. Until then, he prepared chicken in an iron frying pan, which took about 30 minutes—too long for a restaurant operation.

Using a pressure fryer, Sanders not only reduced the cooking time, but produced a flakier, moister chicken, as well. The next year, Sanders formulated what came to be known as his “Original Recipe of 11 Herbs and Spices.”

The eggs did crack on Mojo's back Egg Raid on Mojo by Beastie Boys (Ft. Dave Parsons, John Berry & Kate Schellenbach)

As always, we’re indebted to our compadres over at Beastiemania for compiling the world’s most comprehensive database for all things Beastie. Really, you guys fuckin' rock. So without further adieu, here is Mike D’s explanation of a mofo named Mojo:

Mojo was this huge guy we all knew who was kind of like a nightclub chameleon. You’d see him out at a club and he’d be ska, then the next week he’d be new romantic, and the week after that he’d be punk rock. Then he started working on the door at nightclubs and being a real dick, not wanting to let us in because we were underage. So we had to take matters into our own hands, and bring out the heavy artillery…"

Well, if your world was all black, and then your world was all white
Well then you wouldn't get much color out of life now, right?
Dropping Names by Beastie Boys

‘A black and white viewpoint often creates artificial ‘needs’ in our life that lead to disappointment and depression,’ continues Handel, adding that the cognitive-based psychotherapist Albert Ellis called one example of this ‘musterbation.’ ‘This is our tendency to think that we must have something, or we must do something, or life must be a certain way – or it will be awful.’"

Black & White Thinking kinda' sucks
