On a day full of good news, this is the good newsiest!!

Beasties working on ‘hot’ new album
TORONTO ñ The Beastie Boys are in the midst of writing and recording material for their next album.
The trio confirmed they’ve begun work on the yet-to-be-titled disc.
Adam Yauch (a.k.a. MCA) said the band’s follow-up to 2004’s “To The 5 Boroughs” will most likely be another self-produced effort.
Pressed for details, Adam Horowitz (a.k.a. Ad-Rock) promised the new set of songs will be the Beasties’ “best ever.”
“Wait ’til you hear the new shit that weíre working on. The shit is hot.”
Refusing to say when the disc might reach stores, Michael Diamond (a.k.a. Mike D) said the band is in the “messing around” stage.
After its premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, the Beasties were in Toronto earlier today to promote the DVD release of their first-ever concert film ñ “Awesome; I Fu**in’ Shot That!”
Recorded at Madison Square Garden during 2004’s Challah At Your Boy world tour, the feature-length picture captures the Beasties’ entire live performance using footage shot by fans on 50 different cameras.
Saying that the unconventional move was prompted by their desire to “do something different,” the film was one of the most critically praised in the days following its January debut.
