AtoZ is not only one of my favorite home producers, but he's literally my best friend. So when he tells me he's releasing his first album, I'm very interested. Now comes "The Best of The Newest of AtoZ's Previously Unreleased Latest Classics". There's eighteen finestkind tracks, with extensive liner notes, & a whopping big file of sublime cover art. You can grab this release for free in the complete zip file format, or in the "single-track mix" format. Me, I went for both,
( dmrofatoz.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-best-of-newest-of-atozs-previously.html )
AtoZ sez " I am so damn pleased and proud of these snappy-tracks. There's a lot of life in them: sometimes confident in their silliness, and sometimes just plain powerful and uplifting. Or bunches of both ! I was even everso bold as to take FaceBook's suggestions on relatable Friends and keep running with it, and after it . . . a widening of my potential audience. So open-widen audio-ence !"
AtoZ has mixed up many audio gems with this collection. For instance, you'll hear tracks with Simon & Garfunkel vs The Jackson 5, The Beatles vs Led Zeppelin, David Bowie vs XTC, & The Rolling Stones vs Midnight Oil. With eighteen tracks, theres plenty of variety for everyone. Also, you really should treat your peepers to the large versions of the covers, There's so much to see that will please you.
American Samoa is an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the South Pacific Ocean, southeast of Samoa.
American Samoa consists of five main islands and two coral atolls. The largest and most populous island is Tutuila, with the Manu?a Islands, Rose Atoll, and Swains Island also included in the territory. American Samoa is part of the Samoan Islands chain, located west of the Cook Islands, north of Tonga, and some 300 miles (500 km) south of Tokelau. To the west are the islands of the Wallis and Futuna group.
The 2010 census showed a total population of 55,519 people. The total land area is 199 square kilometers (76.8 sq mi), slightly more than Washington, D.C. American Samoa is the southernmost territory of the U.S. and one of two U.S. territories (with the uninhabited Jarvis Island) south of the Equator. Tuna products are the main exports, and the main trading partner is the United States.

I know this... American Samoa... which is an 'unincorporated territory of the United States'... IOW, we possess it, but it's not part of the US. It is, basically, that anachronistic sort of entity known as a 'Colony'. American Samoans are US 'Nationals', but not US 'Citizens' (wrap your head around that concept). They are, however, self-governing...
But, the Coast Guard still takes care of their buoys, here seen in Pago Pago harbor, is the cutter 'Walnut' out of Honolulu. The crew are an unusual breed in the Coast Guard - Shellbacks - as they've crossed the equator afloat...
Yeah, it's a big deal... and they get fancy certificates, too, the first time over (and hazed unmercifully then, too... an Anglo-American naval tradition since forever... and it can get pretty weird from the photos I've seen)...

Los Angeles residents will no longer need to travel to a galaxy far, far away for a piece of Star Wars history.
George Lucas has selected L.A. over San Francisco to be home to his $1 billion museum, with the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art set to feature pieces from the filmmaker's personal collection, including memorabilia from Star Wars and other films.
The museum's board of directors released the following statement: "After extensive due diligence and deliberation, the Board of Directors of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is pleased to announce plans to build the museum in Exposition Park in Los Angeles. We have been humbled by the overwhelmingly positive support we received from both San Francisco and Los Angeles during our selection process. Settling on a location proved to be an extremely difficult decision precisely because of the desirability of both sites and cities."
Lucas had previously unveiled two different designs for his proposed Museum of Narrative Art, one for Los Angeles' Exposition Park and a similar proposal for the same museum to be built on San Francisco's Treasure Island. At one point, Chicago was also in the running, but those plans were scrapped after facing a legal challenge. The Boards chose the L.A. location on Tuesday.

Award-winning actress Meryl Streep took the Golden Globes and social media by storm with her moving speech about the importance of members of the press and actors holding people in power accountable for their actions. Donald Trump (R-Grifter) dismissed Streep's acceptance speech calling her an "over-rated" actress. Now another celebrity has reacted to the whole Meryl Streep-Donald Trump controversy.
"Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling has made her thoughts clear on the matter. When a concerned fan suggested that soon the President-elect might call her over-rated, the 51-year-old scribe tweeted, "Never forget that some people's good opinion would be more insulting than their abuse!"
Later, Rowling retweeted Donald Clarke's tweet in which Trump is seen mocking disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski during a 2015 rally. She has made it clear that she is not a fan of the businessman. She once called him a "giant orange Twitter egg," according to Time.
Finally, the "Casual Vacancy" author ended her reaction to the Meryl Streep-Donald Trump controversy by addressing a fan's tweet. This fan told her that if all famous people are busy criticizing Trump for the next four years, he will be busy ranting on Twitter. Rowling reacted to the tweet by saying that criticizing the new President will be both a pleasure and duty.
A lot of anti-Trump sentiments were expressed by the public since Streep made that speech at the Golden Globes.
A former Fox News host who accused Bill O'Reilly (R-Horn Dog) and a network executive of sexual harassment quietly received a six-figure settlement from the company after the ouster of former Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes (R-Puppet Master), according to The New York Times and Lawnewz.com.
Juliet Huddy, who hosted "The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet" before it was canceled in 2009, was a frequent guest on "The O'Reilly Factor." She described a pattern of harassment beginning in 2011 that ended in O'Reilly sabotaging her career after she rejected his advances, according to a letter written by her lawyers that was obtained by The Times and Lawnewz.com.
This isn't the first time O'Reilly has been accused of sexual harassment. Andrea Mackris, who was a producer on his show, sued him in 2004, describing instances of harassment similar to those Huddy alleged.
Both women said they received phone calls from O'Reilly that sounded like he was masturbating, according to The Times.
Huddy also accused Jack Abernethy, who was recently appointed copresident of Fox News, of sexual harassment. Both Abernethy and O'Reilly strongly denied the allegations, according to the reports.

The publisher of Monica Crowley's (R-Fabulist) "What the (Bleep) Just Happened?" said Tuesday it is halting sales of the book, pending the "opportunity" for the aide to President-elect Donald Trump to revise her text.
Crowley is a syndicated talk show host and Trump's pick to serve as director of communications at the White House's National Security Council. She is accused of plagiarizing numerous passages in the 2012 book, an anti-Obama work that was praised by future Trump supporters Sarah Palin and Rudolph Giuliani, among others.
On Tuesday, HarperCollins announced the book and its 2013 edition, "What the (Bleep) Just Happened . . . Again?" will "no longer be offered for purchase until such time as the author has the opportunity to source and revise the material."
Both editions have the same basic material, but the 2013 book includes a new foreword, in which Crowley responds to Obama's re-election.
HarperCollins is owned by Rupert Murdoch's (R-Evil Incarnate) News Corp. Murdoch has been critical of Trump in the past, tweeting in 2015, "When is Donald Trump going to stop embarrassing his friends, let alone the whole country?" But the two have apparently become closer. On Monday, Trump tweeted, "Rupert Murdoch is a great guy who likes me much better as a very successful candidate than he ever did as a very successful developer!"

The rusty patched bumble bee, a prized but vanishing pollinator once familiar to much of North America, was listed on Tuesday as an endangered species, becoming the first wild bee in the continental United States to gain such federal protection.
One of several species facing sharp declines, the bumble bee known to scientists as Bombus affinis has plunged nearly 90 percent in abundance and distribution since the late 1990s, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The agency listed the insect after determining it to be in danger of extinction across all or portions of its range, attributing its decline to a mix of factors, including disease, pesticides, climate change and habitat loss.
Named for the conspicuous reddish blotch on its abdomen, the rusty patched bumble bee once flourished across 28 states, primarily in the upper Midwest and Northeast -- from South Dakota to Connecticut -- and in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
Today, only a few small, scattered populations remain in 13 states and Ontario, the Fish and Wildlife Service said.
The Trump Organization pulled out of a $250-million real estate project in ex-Soviet Georgia to avoid a potential conflict with Donald Trump's role as president, Trump's former business partner in the project told Reuters.
The Trump Organization declined to comment on the assertion that it quit the project due to conflict-of-interest concerns, and the Trump transition team did not respond to a request for comment.
Trump planned to give his brand name to Georgian developer Silk Road Group, to build a 47-storey residential tower in the Georgian Black Sea resort of Batumi, a plan he had announced during his visit to the South Caucasus country in April 2012.
SRG and the Trump Organization announced their joint decision to terminate the project last week, but did not elaborate on the reasons.
The Trump transition team, which typically defers to the Trump Organization on business issues, did not respond to a request for comment.

The Pentagon may soon be unleashing a 21st-century version of locusts on its adversaries after officials on Monday said it had successfully tested a swarm of 103 micro-drones.
The important step in the development of new autonomous weapon systems was made possible by improvements in artificial intelligence, holding open the possibility that groups of small robots could act together under human direction.
Military strategists have high hopes for such drone swarms that would be cheap to produce and able to overwhelm opponents' defenses with their great numbers.
The test of the world's largest micro-drone swarm in California in October included 103 Perdix micro-drones measuring around six inches (16 centimeters) launched from three F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets, the Pentagon said in a statement.
Originally created by engineering students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2013 and continuously improved since, Perdix drones draw "inspiration from the commercial smartphone industry," the Pentagon said.
