M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - July 8th, 2015

Kopimi Radio Does Useo's Birthday!

By DJ Useo

Mazanga Von Badman broadcasts twice weekly on Kopimi Radio, bringing his listeners finest kind mashups, & whatever else he damn well feels like. I heard him broadcast for three hours last Sunday, & he ruled the airwaves. The audience was down with the fm signal, with the online feed pleasing tons of folk. ( as evidenced by the twitter, & Facebook reactions )

As I streamed a strong signal over my iTunes app, I heard many an incredible blend by many a talented bootlegger. Mazanga played lots of great tracks that I knew, with representation of talent from across the mashup spectrum. I heard tunes from DJ's From Mars, The Fabulous Beatmashers, DJ Schmolli, & many other niche mixers like DJ Topcat, AtoZ, & even me. I had no problem staying for the full 3 hour show. I think it was meant to be 2 hours, but the energy was flowing, & Mazanga just kept spinning.

Some extra icing for this all ready tasty mashup cake is that Mazanga will be playing an incredible 4 hour set of only DJ Useo mashups for my birthday on July 12th! This gives you plenty of time to schedule the show into your Sunday routine. It'll sure spice up your day, no doubt! I got asked by Mazanga to help with track selection, so I selected 3 & 1/2 hours of my fave tracks by me, then whittled them down to 3 hours. DJ Petrushka took it from there & generously chopped off another hour. That brought it down to 2 hours, the amount I expected the show to be.

But, now, in a fit of enthusiasm, Mazanga is going to go for 4 hours of Birthday Useo celebration. I hope y'all choose to listen in. It's a great way to beat the heat.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Isaac Asimov was a claustrophile, making him a fan of what?

       Small, Enclosed Spaces                                                      Source

Isaac Asimov (born Isaak Ozimov; c. January 2, 1920 - April 6, 1992) was an American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. He was known for his works of science fiction and popular science. Asimov was a prolific writer, and wrote or edited more than 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards. His books have been published in 9 of the 10 major categories of the Dewey Decimal Classification.

Asimov was a claustrophile: he enjoyed small, enclosed spaces. In the third volume of his autobiography, he recalls a childhood desire to own a magazine stand in a New York City Subway station, within which he could enclose himself and listen to the rumble of passing trains while reading.        Source

Randall was first and correct with:
   closed-in places
  a claustrophile is a person who loves being in closed-in places

  I discovered Asimov when I was in high school - read the Foundation Trilogy and started reading every thing of his that I could get my hands on. I think my favorite would probably be "the Gods Themselves" --- highly recommended.
  Well... late yesterday it rained, which froze when it hit the sidewalks and roads (and everything else) and then it snowed about half an inch on top of that. So it is SLIPPERY out there this morning. I see on the local news where a semi slid off of an overpass and crashed down onto a young lady going to work. The semi-truck driver is dead and the young gal is in the hospital. Slippery folks ... 14 degrees F
  Stay warm, folks

Mark. said:
   It seems like a claustrophile would be the opposite of a claustrophobe.
  Therefore a claustrophile would like confined spaces.

Alan J wrote:
   Closed-in spaces.

mj replied:
   I'm going with
  Closed in spaces, which is not a bad thing for someone who wrote some realistic depictions of humankind moving out into space.

Kevin K. in Washington, DC responded:
   Must be the opposite of a claustrophobe, so it must be someone who likes small, tight spaces.

Adam answered:
   Small, enclosed spaces

DanD said:
   Open spaces.

gene wrote:
   The opposite of a claustrophobe. Asimov liked being in small, enclosed spaces. I wonder if he had a casket like Bela Lugosi?

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   a love of closed-in spaces

DJ Useo replied:
   Is it sideburns? lol

zorch answered:
   a claustrophile likes close spaces. a Santa Claustrophile likes fat, white bearded guys in red suits.

Deborah said:
   A claustrophile is a fan of clauses in sentences. Ha! No. A claustrophile is a fan of closed spaces, the opposite of a claustrophobic.
  Sorry to be so late. We drove to Watsonville, about 130 miles through San Jose traffic, to Calfee Designs, where we met Craig Calfee, the guy who custom-makes some of the finest tandems in the land. We're spending more than one might spend on a used car. It will be our forever tandem, and we're going to tour the world with it. I'm nervous and excited and my hand shook when I handed over the credit card for the deposit. Whee!

Joe S     wrote:
   That would be small, closed in spaces. Issac Asimov wrote nearly 500 books in his lifetime and all but 3 were written in a broom closet equipped with a sink, a chair, and a desk. No one remembers the titles of the 3 books that were written in a large, spacious office with a lunch counter. Yes it's true, you are reading this on the Internet and we all know if it's on the Internet it has to be true. Don't believe me? See what Lincoln has to say about it.

  If you can't trust Abraham Lincoln, who can you trust?

More Episodes Left Than Thought?

'Game of Thrones'

HBO hasn't yet formally renewed Game of Thrones for an eighth season, and there's an exciting - or annoying - reason for that. It all depends on your personal take on the hit TV series.

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss surprised fans last year when they said that they have some 13 hours left in the Game of Thrones saga. That implied that HBO would only air 13 more episodes over the course of the next two seasons. We already know that season 7 will hit HBO later than initially expected, and it will consist of just 7 episodes. So we thought HBO had settled on a six-episode eight and final season.

However, TVLine found out that HBO is still waiting for Benioff and Weiss to decide how many episodes they want in season 8. That's why the last Game of Thrones season has not been formally confirmed.

"The only thing we're working out is how many episodes they want to do," HBO programming president Casey Bloys told the site. Bloys "hopes" there will be more than six episodes.

"They're still figuring it out because I think they're trying to get a shape of the season," he said. "They always do what they think [will yield] the best version of the show. It's all about how many they're comfortable [with]. But I'll always take more."

An Echo Of The Past

Women's March

Thousands of women take to the streets of Washington, demanding a greater voice for women in American political life as a new president takes power.

This will happen on Saturday, one day after the inauguration of Donald Trump (R-Grifter).

This DID happen more than 100 years ago, one day before the inauguration of Woodrow Wilson.

So notable was the women's suffrage parade down Pennsylvania Avenue on March 3, 1913, that Wilson slipped into town almost unnoticed on the eve of his swearing-in, forced to travel back alleys to reach his hotel.

According to the Library of Congress' American Memory archives, crowds in town for the inauguration - mostly men - surged into the streets and made it difficult for the marchers to pass, forcing them to go single file at times. Women were jeered, tripped, shoved and spat upon, and police did little to assist them or quell the unrest. Some 100 marchers were taken to the hospital with injuries.

Asked to Avoid Politics at Super Bowl?

Lady Gaga

Contrary to rumors that Lady Gaga was told she must avoid discussing politics during her upcoming Super Bowl halftime performance, a source familiar with the situation says this is not the case.

On Tuesday, Entertainment Tonight reported that Gaga would not be permitted to say anything about the presidential election or mention Donald Trump, but an insider says, "It's bullshit."

A rep for the NFL told ET this was "nonsense from people trying to stir up controversy where there is none. ... The Super Bowl is a time when people really come together. Lady Gaga is focused on putting together an amazing show for fans, and we love working with her on it; we aren't going to be distracted by this."

Leading up to the big game, Gaga has been documenting her preparation on Instagram. She even said she built a tent in her backyard with a dance floor to practice her routine on.

'Comedians in Cars'

Jerry Seinfeld

Crackle is now in Jerry Seinfeld's rearview mirror.

The comedian is taking popular web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," to Netflix. The new deal will also include two original stand-up specials for the streaming giant.

All past episodes and 24 new episodes of "Comedians in Cars" will debut in late 2017 on Netflix. The stand-up specials are also set to debut later this year.

This is a huge loss for Crackle. "Comedians in Cars" is its most well-known series and a three-time Emmy winner.

Obama Commutes Sentence

Chelsea Manning

President Obama has commuted the 35-year prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, paving the way for the Army intelligence analyst turned high-profile leaker to be freed on May 17, the White House announced Tuesday.

Manning was on a list of 209 commutations and 64 pardons released Tuesday, though they may not be Obama's final acts of clemency before he leaves office at midday on Jan. 20. Edward Snowden's name was not on the list.

Manning was convicted after leaking U.S. military incident logs and diplomatic cables, among other secret government documents, to WikiLeaks, in 2010.

Earlier this week, WikiLeaks said on Twitter that its founder, Julian Assange, would agree to be extradited to the United States if Obama granted clemency to Manning. He has been living in Ecuador's embassy in London since June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he has been accused of sexual assault.

Three Arrested Near Pipeline

North Dakota

Three protesters were arrested on Monday for trespassing along the Dakota Access Pipeline construction site, police said, where a fierce months-long demonstration has unfolded against the building of a multibillion-dollar pipeline.

The site of the $3.8 billion project in southern North Dakota had been the scene of demonstrations by Native Americans and environmentalists, who say the pipeline would damage sacred lands and any leaks could pollute the water supply of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.

But in early December the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers denied a key easement needed to allow the pipeline to run under Lake Oahe, a reservoir formed by a dam on the Missouri River.

The protesters, who were taken into custody on Monday for criminal trespassing onto private property, inciting a riot and resisting arrest, were among about 200 people who demonstrated near the fenced-off Dakota Access Pipeline horizontal drill pad, the Morton County Sheriff Department said in a statement.

There were reports on social media that police fired tear gas on protesters on Monday. Officials were not immediately available for comment.

More Than 80 Dolphins Die Off Coast


More than 80 dolphins known as false killer whales have died off the southwest coast of Florida after getting stranded in shallow waters, US officials said.

A pod of 95 of the dolphins, which are black in color and look like killer whales without white markings, became stranded in the Gulf Coast off Everglades National Park, the park said on Twitter.

Photos on social media showed dozens of these dolphins, some grouped in clusters of four or five, just a few feet from a sandy beach lined with trees.

The dolphins had become "deeply embedded in some of the mangroves making response efforts extremely difficult," Blair Mase, a stranding coordinator with NOAA's fisheries service, said in the Miami Herald newspaper.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that of the remaining dolphins, one had been seen alive and 13 others were unaccounted for.

Files Motion To Halt Environmental Study

Dakota Access

Energy Transfer Partners has filed a motion to bar the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from initiating an environmental study for its controversial Dakota Access pipeline crossing at Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

Energy Transfer Partners requested on Monday that a U.S. District Court judge for the District of Columbia stop the Corps from initiating the environmental impact statement process until a ruling has been made on whether the company already has necessary approvals for the pipeline crossing.

The Corps said it would publish a notice in the Federal Register on Wednesday stating its intent to prepare an environmental impact statement for the requested easement at Lake Oahe. The notice will invite interested parties to comment on potential issues and concerns, as well as alternatives to the proposed route, which should be considered in the study.

The Corps in December denied Energy Transfer Partners an easement to drill under Lake Oahe, a water source upstream from the Standing Rock Sioux reservation that has been the focus of protests. Members from the Standing Rock Sioux and others say the line could damage drinking water and desecrate sacred grounds.

16th-Century Spanish Ship Found

Emanuel Point III

The third of six sunken Spanish ships that were lost in a hurricane in 1559 has been discovered off the coast of Pensacola, Florida.

In the summer of 2016, the wreck of the ship, dubbed the Emanuel Point III, was found resting under the sand 7 feet (2 meters) below the ocean surface in Pensacola Bay. Archaeologists have found the ship's hull, ballast rocks and ceramic artifacts in the wreckage. The ship was part of a failed colonization attempt by Spain that took place just 60 years after Christopher Columbus first sailed across the Atlantic.

The recently discovered ship was part of a fleet that was led by Don Tristan de Luna, a conquistador who attempted to be the first European to establish a permanent colony in North America. The Spanish fleet launched from Vera Cruz, Mexico, Cook said, with 12 ships carrying a total of 1,500 would-be colonists onboard. It landed in Pensacola Bay on Aug. 15, 1559. On Sept. 19, a hurricane struck. The colonists lost seven ships and many of their supplies, which were being stored onboard.

Some colonists died in the hurricane. The rest tried to push inland, but they lasted only until 1561 before abandoning the settlement. After the disaster, the king of Spain gave up on colonizing the land around the Gulf of Mexico and decided to focus on the East Coast instead, Cook said. St. Augustine, Florida, which was founded four years later in 1565, would go on to achieve the title of the first permanent North American settlement.

The first lost ship in the de Luna fleet, the Emanuel Point I, was found in 1992, and the second, dubbed the Emanuel Point II, was discovered in 2007. In 2015, a local historian noticed pottery shards at a construction site in a residential neighborhood abutting the bay. University of West Florida archaeologists found that the shards were Spanish artifacts dating to the 16th century. The shards were the first terrestrial evidence of the colonists' temporary home, known as the Luna settlement.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
