Yauch during the Sabotage video.
From a color slide I took of Yauch in Tibet (1995) after we attended a religious festival that devolved into tsampa-throwing battle. Tsampa is a barely flour and a staple in the Tibetan diet. Throwing it in the air during a festival is a blessing…Throwing it in each other’s faces after the blessing is fun.
