    Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys has his own film production company, called Oscilloscope Laboratories and the shingle has just picked up William S. Burroughs: A Man Within, which is a documentary on the late Beat writer. It will be released theatrically this fall. It features everyone from John Waters to Iggy Pop talking about the influence that Burroughs wielded. Patti Smith and Sonic Youth soundtracked the film, as well.

    Who is your favorite Beastie Boy? I was always, ALWAYS partial to the King Ad Rock, Adam Horovitz. And did you know that Mike D.'s wife directed films like CB 40 and Half-Baked?
