So this is what I’ve got to say to you all
Be true to yourself and you will never fall
Pass the Mic by Beastie Boys 2

First and foremost, be true to yourself—beware of self-deception. From a monologue delivered by Polonius in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet—Act I, Scene III.

Neither a borrower nor a lender be;
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
This above all: to thine ownself be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell: my blessing season this in thee!

*goodness gracious!* Pass the Mic by Beastie Boys 2

Goodness Gracious

Goodness Gracious” is an idiomatic “exclamation of excitement, surprise or frustration. It is a Southern term used primarily as a substitute for cursing, and as such it is a minced oath. Sweet little old ladies use this term a lot.” So did disgraced former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, who ought to be tried for war crimes.

In 2013, the storied Madison Square Garden got some renovations. The improved MSG offers a Signature Suite Level, showcasing memorabilia from those who have left their “signature” on The Garden.

The BBoys gave up the green track suits they wore during the 10.9.2004 MSG show—the fanheld camera footage became their concert film, Awesome; I Fucking Shot That!
