M Is FOR MASHUP - February 3rd, 2016

Zappa Is Mashed! News At Eight!

By DJ Useo

Yes! Frank Zappa is my favorite musical artist. Even over The Clash, The Beatles, & Skrillex! So, it's no surprise that over the years that I've made mashups, I've often dipped into his musical well for inspiration. Luckily, for me, so very many of you have loved my Zappa mashups.

I decided to collect all the ones I'd released and post it as one album, when the awareness of what I'd done hit me fresh, & I got motivated to double the project with many new mixes with Mr. Zappa. I was quite aware of how fine many of the previously released tracks were, so I was wary to make sure these new ones were fun, & listenable.

Wow, did I succeed! ( by my standards as a Zappa fan ) A particular fave is "Roadhouse Surf Blues" ( The Doors vs Frank Zappa ) . The vocals got out of control on me, & Jim Morrison sings very high here. Hehe. Just love it this way, though. The music I cut & looped from a section near the end of Frank's "Lumpy Gravy" album.
( )

To keep this rather ad-like spiel to a minimum, I'd like to quickly mention many of the artists I combined with Frank Zappa tunes. There's Britney, 3 Doors Down, The Ramones, Yes, Depeche Mode, The Beatles, Ozzy Osbourne, The Cure, Donovan, Cream, Alice Cooper, Frank Sinatra, Elton John, The Black Keys, Mary Hartman, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Jimi Hendrix, Talking Heads, Sonic Youth, Ken Nordic, Nirvana, INXS, Queen, & many more!

You can grab the complete file from mirror links here at my blog

Here's some single track links for those of you who prefer that

01 - Dirty Gremlin Love ( Frank Zappa vs Minitronik )
( )

02 - Fly Me Idiot Bastard Son ( Frank Sinatra vs Frank Zappa vs James Gang )
( )

03 - Roundabout Apostrophe' ( Yes vs Frank Zappa vs T_Rex vs Armand Van Helden )
( )

04 - We Are Not Just Like Heaven ( The Cure vs Frank Zappa )
( )

05 - Who Needs Kryptonite? ( 3 Doors Down vs Frank Zappa )
( )

Hope you are in the mood for album - oriented mashups!

This Collection is 160 minutes! Woot! :D

btw- Here's my live set from Crumplstock 3

It's one solid hour of of-kilter mashups by me, plus DJ Petrushka does some fun skits with me!

Enjoy the many mashups.

Jan. 29, 2016: birthday: W.C. Fields (Writer's Almanac)
When he was filming movies, he kept a flask of mixed martinis near at hand, referring to it as his "pineapple juice." He often quipped about his drinking, saying things like, "Once, during Prohibition, I was forced to live for days on nothing but food and water." And, "Everyone must believe in something. I believe I'll have another drink." And, "If I had to live life over, I'd live over a saloon."

Today CFLs have peaked and begun to decline because of competition from light-emitting diode alternatives. LED bulbs give off a warmer light, have fallen in price to rival CFLs, and are even more energy efficient. And now the decline of CFLs in the United States is receiving a full-blown nail in the coffin: On Monday, GE announced that it will cease to manufacture CFLs by the end of 2016.

   It was President Gerald Ford. In the attached picture, you will see his corny "WIN" (short for "Whip Inflation Now") button on his left lapel as George Harrison pins the much cooler "OM" button on his right. On December 13, 1974, the Quiet One visited the Clumsy One at the White House.

Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcali replied:
   Gerald Ford and his WIN buttons. If you were frugal, didn't overspend and saved your extra money, government wouldn't have to do something radical like enact wage and price controls to deflate the inflation of the those times. More unrealistic Repuke bullshit. Wow, what a bunch of bad memories did that bring up. Remember that Ford was the asshole that pardoned the Dickster.

DJ Useo responded:
   It was that dingleberry Ford. You might have gathered I have a low opinion of him, as I have for every president I've ever experienced.
  Toadies to the rich, each & every one of them. Bah!
  Today I was of course disgusted with the news "coverage" of the stinking presidential caucases.
  I literally saw reporting that directly contradicted each other.

   "Whip Inflation Now" was not just a speech-it was a public relations campaign to enlist American citizens to hold back the increases in wages and prices of the 1970s, supposedly by increasing personal savings and taming spending habits.

Super Bowl, Grammys

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga will perform at two of February's most-watched events as she sings the national anthem at the Super Bowl and leads a tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys.

The National Football League announced that Lady Gaga would sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday in San Francisco, where British rockers Coldplay will be the halftime entertainment.

Lady Gaga was separately announced Tuesday as a performer at the Grammy Awards on February 15 where she will lead a tribute to Bowie.

The tribute will be directed by Nile Rodgers of Chic fame, a longtime friend of Bowie who produced his disco-infused 1983 album "Let's Dance."

Hosting 2016 Tony Awards

James Corden, OBE

James Corden, who won a Tony Award for his Broadway turn in One Man, Two Guvnors before CBS tapped him for The Late Late Show, will host the 70th annual Tony Awards in June.

Corden, who regularly shows off his singing chops with the "Carpool Karaoke" segments on Late Late Show, seems a smart choice for the gig. He's got the stage chops and the Broadway experience to satisfy the New York industry, and at the same has enough of a rising profile, on TV and on social media, that his involvement in the Tonys could attract wider attention beyond a core audience of theater fans.

Corden's selection also keeps it in the family for CBS, which has broadcast the Tony ceremony for years. Corden stepped behind the desk on CBS' Late Late Show in March 2015.

As Tony host, Corden will follow in the footsteps of last year's co-hosts Alan Cumming and Kristin Chenoweth, whose turn at the podium was largely received tepidly. Neil Patrick Harris, Hugh Jackman and Sean Hayes also have had a go at hosting in recent years.

Plans To Open Bookstores

Amazon Inc plans to open up to 400 physical bookstores, an executive of a major U.S. mall operator said on Tuesday.

Amazon dipped its toe into the waters of brick-and-mortar stores with the opening of a bookstore in its home city of Seattle in November. An expansion of bookstores, which the company has not confirmed, would be a surprise reversal from the online retailer credited with driving physical booksellers out of business.

"You've got Amazon opening brick-and-mortar bookstores and their goal is to open, as I understand, 300 to 400 bookstores," Sandeep Mathrani, chief executive of General Growth Properties Inc , said on Tuesday, responding to an analyst's question after it reported earnings.

On the call, Mathrani compared Amazon's plans to similar moves by eyeware company Warby Parker or men's clothing retailer Bonobos, both of which opened physical stores after finding success online.

Any move by Amazon to expand stores would further antagonize long-time rivals like Barnes & Noble Inc , the largest U.S. bookstore chain, which operated 640 bookstores across the United States as of January. Shares of Barnes & Noble fell more than 5 percent on Tuesday.

Lions Rediscovered


Conservationists announced Monday the "amazing discovery" of a previously unknown lion population in a remote northwestern region of Ethiopia, confirming local reports with camera trap photographs for the first time.

Lions were spotted in the Alatash National Park on Ethiopia's border with Sudan, lion conservation group Born Free said.

"The confirmation that lions persist in this area is exciting news," Born Free Foundation said in a statement.

"With lion numbers in steep decline across most of the African continent, the discovery of previously unconfirmed populations is hugely important."

Hans Bauer, a lion conservationist from Oxford University who led the tracking expedition in Ethiopia, said there could be up to 200 lions in the area.

Lion numbers are estimated to have declined by between as much as three-quarters since 1980, and occupy less than a tenth of its historic range across Africa.

"Needs To Broaden Appeal"

National Parks

The National Park Service needs to broaden its appeal to millennials as it celebrates its 100th birthday this year, the director of the agency said Tuesday as he touted civil rights sites that aren't traditionally viewed as parks to a younger audience.

Park Service Director Jon Jarvis spoke during a visit to the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site, marking the formerly all-white institution that was desegregated by nine black students in 1957.

Part of the plan to attract more 18- to 35-year-olds to national parks, Jarvis said, includes a "Find Your Park" website and social media campaign that the service and the National Park Foundation launched last year to promote the parks and encourage people to share their experiences.

Jarvis said the effort includes highlighting civil rights sites such as Central High School. He also plans a visit this month to the Colonel Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers Monument in Ohio, which commemorates one of the first African-Americans to graduate from West Point and the first black to achieve the rank of colonel in the U.S. Army. After that, he plans to visit the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park.

Members of the Endiablada brotherhood march towards a cemetery to pray for the deceased fellow believers and relatives during the "Endiablada" traditional festival in Almonacid del Marquesado, Spain, Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2016. The "Endiablada" (The Brotherhood of the Devils) festivals are celebrated each Feb. 2-3 in the central Spanish town of Almonacid del Marquesado since medieval times, or before. In the festival, men from the town dress up as devil-type characters in colorful jumpsuit costumes and red miter hats. They don large heavy copper cowbells around their waists, which clang incessantly as they walk, dance and jump through the town's winding streets and visit the cemetery. The Feb. 2 procession, the "Candelaria" (Candlemas), represents the Virgin Mary presenting baby Jesus to authorities in the temple 40 days after Christmas. The protocol is believed to have caused her some embarrassment and the accompanying bell-clanging characters are thought to be a way of diverting the public's attention.

Largely For Law Enforcement

Motorcycle Group

One of the nation's fastest-growing motorcycle clubs is composed largely of military, police officers and prison guards. It also embraces the regalia and traditions of outlaw biker gangs - a choice that has provoked deadly clashes with other groups.

The Iron Order club insists it is a law-abiding, charitable brotherhood of family men who just like to ride. But experts say its members are increasingly becoming entangled in violence with other biker groups, blurring the line between professionals who are sworn to uphold the law and a biker culture with a long history of criminal activity.

It's not uncommon to for law enforcement to join motorcycle clubs. Some groups exist exclusively for police, such as the Blue Knights, which has almost 20,000 members and performs community services year-round. A source of friction is that the Iron Order consists of both law enforcement and other professions, and it adopts emblems more common to well-established gangs, according to experts.

The Iron Order group formed in 2004, seeking the mystique of outlaw gangs without the crime, he said. The founders liked the motorcycle fellowship, which reminded them of the camaraderie of a military unit or a police department.

Law Enforcement Bikers

Iron Order Motorcycle Club

A gun and knife fight at a Denver motorcycle show that left one person dead and seven wounded was between an outlaw biker gang and a club with many law enforcement members, lawyers for both groups said on Sunday.

Lawyers for the Iron Order Motorcycle Club, whose members include large numbers of law enforcement and the military, and the Mongols Motorcycle Club, which federal authorities deem an "outlaw motorcycle gang", each blamed the other side for starting Saturday's brawl.

Denver police said they had not yet arrested anyone in connection with Saturday's violence at the Denver Motorcycle Expo, an annual show and swap meet at the city-owned National Western Complex, although one "person of interest" was questioned by investigators.

Four people were shot, one fatally, one person was stabbed and three others sustained injuries that did not involve weapons during the fight, police said. A second day of the motorcycle show planned for Sunday was canceled.

Extends Drought Emergency


More rain and snow are falling on California this winter, improving the snowpack and reservoir levels but cutting into conservation.

State water regulators were expected Tuesday to extend the drought emergency after announcing that conservation fell off in December. Residents used 18 percent less water than in December 2013, but that was the worst showing in seven months of tracking and fell well short of Gov. Jerry Brown's goal of 25 percent.

California, however, will likely beat its long-term conservation goal, saving a combined 25.5 percent since Brown issued the mandate in June calling for savings from 2013 use rates, the State Water Resources Control Board reported.

State water managers are looking ahead to April 1 - when the Sierra Nevada snowpack is historically at its deepest before melting and feeding rivers and streams and replenishing depleted reservoirs.

The snowpack's depth then will signal whether drought conditions are easing after the state's driest four-year period on record.

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.
