Though by his own admission, he's "just terrible at watching basketball on television," Beastie Boy Adam Yauch—aka MCA—has directed a documentary about the nation's top prep players. Gunnin' for That #1 Spot opens tomorrow, and Radar catches up with Yauch, whose fight for his right to party is trickier now that he's a gray-haired soccer dad. Among the highlights:
- On the film: "I wanted to be able to convey being right inside of the game and to have the game move with the music and the slo-mo, and to jump back and forth from those two realities."
- Daily grind: "I listen to NPR. I get up at 8 and take my daughter to school. Music, lately, I haven't been doing a lot of sitting around and listening to records."
- Big picture: "I don't know how my life has unfolded karmically, but every minor frustration and happiness is all based on things I've done going back over infinite time."
