M Is FOR MASHUP - January 20th, 2016

David Bowie Mashups In Remembrance

By DJ Useo

As so many of us hurt over the loss of super star David Bowie, so did the bootleg community. It's a passing that left us gutted emotionally. The depth of the absence was always going to be deep, but combined with the unexpectedness of it, most were placed in shock. We'd just so recently enjoyed his new ( last ) album.

Grief is tough in all cases, & we each need to process in our own way. Mashers mash to ease the hurt. This gifts you, the listeners, with welcome and timely tracks that contribute to the honoring of the great man. Allow me to mention a few worthy projects that celebrate David Bowies' place in our lives.

01 - KOPIMI RADIO w/ Mazanga Von Badman David Bowie Tribute 01 13 16 -

FM & Internet Deejay Mazanga Von Badman spins an incredible assortment of David Bowie mashups by many, many heartbroken bootleggers. Stream, or d/l here

02 - Bootie Loves Bowie - Mashup tribute to David Bowie -

04 - SANNY X - David Bowie Sanny X DMC Megamix - ( 8 minutes )

( )

06 - Terry Urban - "Biggie Stardust" single track mashup -

A mashup of a Notorious B.I.G. song and a David Bowie song pays tribute to both late artists.

A hugely popular new track that does the seemingly impossible by virtue of this excellent genre clash.
( )

07 - DJ Useo - "Get it On Starman" ( David Bowie vs T. Rex )

I actually made this last December to ease my still sore loss of Marc Bolan from T.Rex, but now it means even more to me.
( )

There's literally tons more out there, & more coming every day. My next album has Bowie vs Cheap Trick, Bowie vs Heaven 17 & maybe even Bowie vs Squeeze vs Beatles. All were begun directly before the Man's passing, amazingly. May your own grief be eased by the many tunes.

This revolutionary was born José Doroteo Arango Arámbula. By what name is he better known?

       Pancho Villa                                                      Source

Francisco (Pancho) Villa (born José Doroteo Arango Arámbula; 5 June 1878 - 20 July 1923) was a Mexican Revolutionary general and one of the most prominent figures of the Mexican Revolution.        Source

  Wait, what was the question? Oh yeah...the trivia answer is Pancho Villa, who may or may not have also been Emiliano Zapata, because they lived at the same time, in the same country, fighting in the same revolution, and no one ever saw them together! However, Zapata had a WAY better quote.

Celebrates Glenn Frey

Winslow, Arizona

Winslow, Arizona, was all but forgotten when Interstate 40 displaced Route 66 and began whisking travelers around its downtown in the late 1970s.

But it still had one thing going for it: Everybody wanted to stand on a corner in the small city after hearing Glenn Frey and the Eagles make it sound so cool in "Take It Easy."

Locals capitalized on the lyrics with an annual festival and park featuring a statue and mural commemorating the 1972 song.

Winslow residents staged a memorial service Tuesday night that featured Eagles songs and dancing in the park near the statue.

"Birds, Not Bullies"

Malheur Refuge

With the armed takeover of a national wildlife refuge in southeastern Oregon in its third week, Ammon Bundy and his group are still trying to muster up broad community support - so far without much luck.

Bundy has drawn a lot of attention to the dissatisfaction of ranchers and local townsfolk with federal land-use policies in the West. But the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge has also begun to result in pushback from others who use public lands - birders, hunters and hikers, among others.

On Tuesday, several hundred people rallied in Portland - about 300 miles north of the remote refuge in southeastern Oregon - to demand Bundy end the occupation and to point out that federal management makes it possible for all kinds of people to enjoy public lands.

Protesters chanted "Birds, Not Bullies," a reference to the Malheur refuge's creation in 1908 as a preserve and breeding ground for native birds. The rally was organized by Oregon Wild, Portland Audubon and the Center for Biological Diversity.

Conservation groups have also shown up at the refuge itself to demand that Bundy and his followers leave, and last weekend got into a shouting match with Bundy's group.

Left By Early Explorers Antarctic


Conservationists in Australia's oldest Antarctic outpost have scraped away a hundred years of snow and ice to unearth items, from bullets to a bowl of peas, that reveal the harsh conditions battled by early explorer Douglas Mawson and his team.

Six restorers have painstakingly moved the equivalent of a 5-tonne truck of ice, or 30 cubic meters (39 cubic yards), out of a hut that was the base for critical geological and scientific surveys of the region done before World War One.

Mawson's Huts is Australia's most isolated Antarctic outpost, perched on the edge of Commonwealth Bay, 2,696 km (1,675 miles) south of the Tasmanian capital of Hobart.

One of six complexes surviving in the world from the 'Heroic Era' of Antarctic exploration, it was used during 1912 and 1913 by Mawson's expedition, which charted the region's coastline and first described several of its bird and animal species.

The Mawson's Huts location, which the explorer termed the "home of the blizzard" for its ferocious winds, is recognized as a historic site and monument under the Antarctic Treaty.

Worst Of 2015


If your password is on this list, you better change it ASAP. The 25 worst passwords of 2015 have been released by Los Gatos, Calif.-based SplashData.

The company, which makes password management software, compiles the annual list from the most common passwords leaked online each year - more than two million in 2015.

Think 1qaz2wsx is a strong password? Think again. It's based on the first two columns of keys on a standard keyboard, and it made No. 15 on this year's list.

It was among several new and longer passwords on the list for the first time, along with qwertyuiop and 1234567890. They suggest users and websites may be making more of an effort to make their passwords more secure, SplashData said.

The password 123456 and "password" itself remain the top two commonly used passwords, respectively - as they have every year since SplashData started compiling the annual list in 2011.



Wake-up Call


Conservative Family Values


The older son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was arrested in a domestic violence case in which his girlfriend was afraid he would shoot himself with an AR-15 assault rifle, according to court documents filed Tuesday.

Track Palin, 26, is charged with assault, interfering with the report of a domestic violence crime and possessing a weapon while intoxicated in connection with the incident Monday night at the Wasilla home of his parents, where he lives, according to an affidavit by police.

The girlfriend told authorities she was punched in the face by Palin, who is the oldest child of Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and conservative leader.

According to the three-page affidavit, both Palin and his girlfriend called 911 that night. Police Officer Andrew Kappler wrote that he arrived at the Wasilla home and found Track Palin walking outside and talking on a phone. The officer said Palin had an injury to his right eye and surrounding area, smelled strongly of alcohol and acted with escalating hostility, prompting Kappler to put him in handcuffs.

Police say a breath sample provided by Palin showed he had a blood alcohol level of 0.189. The affidavit says other officers found the girlfriend hiding under a bed inside the home and crying.

$100 a Month for Poisoned Water

Flint, Michigan

The city of Flint still charges its constituents for water. Water that a team from Virginia Tech revealed to be toxic, in many cases. Water that runs yellow and brown and smells like sewage even when it doesn't. And according to Flint residents who spoke to Mic this weekend, that water costs between $100 and $200 a month.

In 2013, Flint made the cost-cutting decision to stop buying water from Detroit and, instead, connect to a future pipeline coming from Lake Huron. When Detroit stopped selling water to Flint before the pipeline could be built, Flint started drawing water from the extremely corrosive Flint River. The water wreaked havoc on the city's old plumbing, flooding residents' pipes with lead. People of Flint figured it out when their faucets released brown liquid that made their hair fall out and gave them rashes .

Since then, 10 people have died from the pneumonia-like condition Legionnaire's disease. The city finally admitted it needed help. Gov. Rick Snyder (R-Guilty) called in the Michigan National Guard to bring aid to Flint.

At no point during the sickness and death did Flint stop charging its residents for the poison in their sinks.

The New Normal

26 Years Later

Tammy Thomson switched off the lights and crowded the children into the corner of the classroom. She tried not to think of her father or that morning 26 years ago, focusing instead on her students and the lock-down drill, this testament to a new American reality.

On Sept. 14, 1989, Joseph Wesbecker, a disgruntled worker wracked with rage and mental illness, stormed the Standard-Gravure printing plant with an AK-47 and killed her father, Lloyd White, and seven others before turning his gun on himself.

The TV cameras eventually packed up and the day was filed away to history - for all but the families of the dead, the 12 who were injured but survived, and dozens who hid in closets and cubicles and had to step over their friends, dead and dying, to escape.

Wesbecker robbed them of loved ones. He took the ability to walk, to laugh, to enter crowded rooms, to live without wondering what more they should have done that day.

It seemed unthinkable 26 years ago. They have watched it become almost routine.

Lawsuit Filed

Kamehameha Schools

Twenty-six former students alleged in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that they were repeatedly sexually abused by a now-deceased psychiatrist at a private school for Native Hawaiians.

The plaintiffs are suing Kamehameha Schools and the estate of psychiatrist Robert Browne, who they say molested them during therapy sessions between 1958 and 1985. Kamehameha Schools required each student to undergo therapy, took them to Browne's office and paid for the services, according to the lawsuit.

Kamehameha Schools has known about the allegations for the last 25 years but failed to respond or investigate them, the lawsuit said.

Kamehameha Schools was established in 1883 by the will of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop. Kamehameha Schools gives admission preference to students of Native Hawaiian ancestry and enrolls nearly 7,000 at three campuses statewide.

The lawsuit also names as a defendant St. Francis Medical Center, where Browne served as director of psychiatry until he lost his credentials. He then continued practicing at Kuakini Medical Center, now known as Kuakini Health System, which is another defendant.

Missing Hong Kong Publisher


The chief editor of a Hong Kong publisher of books banned in mainland China who disappeared three weeks ago has been located in the mainland, Chinese officials told Hong Kong authorities.

Lee Bo, a British citizen, is one of five men linked to Hong Kong publishing company Mighty Current and its Causeway Bay bookshop who have gone missing in recent months. The cases have gripped the semiautonomous Chinese city and sparked fears Beijing is clamping down on the city's freedom of speech.

Hong Kong police said late Monday that they received notice from Guangdong province's public security department that Lee was "understood" to be in the mainland.

Lee's case in particular raised alarm bells because it raised suspicions that Chinese security agents crossed into Hong Kong to abduct him. According to local news reports, he was last seen at his company's warehouse and did not have his travel permit for mainland China with him, but days after he went missing he called his wife to say he was in Shenzhen, the city next to Hong Kong.

Police said in a brief statement that Guangdong officials also forwarded to them a letter from Lee to the Hong Kong government, with handwriting that Lee's wife confirmed was his. Police said the letter was similar to one Hong Kong media reported on Monday, which he purportedly wrote to his wife to tell her he "voluntarily" went to the mainland to assist authorities with an investigation, details of which he didn't disclose.

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.
