M Is FOR MASHUP - February 4th, 2015

The Institute Of Bootleggers Presents PEACOCK
: 17 new Mashups

By DJ Useo

I was struck by inspiration recently. Inspiration to make an instant mashup album. The flood of great mixes lends itself so well to being collected. It also aids the listening experience to have some type of order to the tunes. Now, I can easily choose, & assemble a pretty good album based on my own tastes, but in this case I decided to add in the tastes of all the listeners. This means I loaded my Soundcloud mashup feed with all the bootleggers I've signed up to follow.

Next, I chose about thirty tracks, based on who, & what I like combined with the numbers generated by the people who heard the tracks already. Many tracks had only been available less than a day, but already had hundreds, & in some cases, thousands of listens. Next, I listened to all of the thirty, & pared them down to only one discs' worth. By now, it was one superb collection embodying excellent production, combined with high musical appeal. The mixers are a great blend of newer, & also well known producers, so you go from established folk like ToTom, oki, & DRA'man, to people you'll want to know like Moxcie, Englewood, & HODJ.

Everybody mixed with who they love, with artists ranging from Janet Jackson, Coldplay, Bruno Mars, & David Guetta to Skrillex, Daft Punk, & Filter w/ Crystal Method. Together, the mixers, & the source artists give you the most modern style of music, the mashup. I had a great time mastering, & leveling all the tracks into one wavescape. We didn't clear the samples, we merely released under a Creative Commons Licence, so you get the album for free! I loaded a couple convenient mirror links here   ( ) so I hope you'll go & grab the set & play it often.

Here's a preview link for zachsyrylo's "Viva la Dreams" ( Taylor Swift vs Coldplay )

You can tell from his mix how much you'll love PEACOCK, the full album.

Here's the full playlist for you to ponder.

   01 - Assal - Ma Quale Do ( Pino d Angio vs Janet Jackson )

   02 - Moxcie - Dreams Of Her ( P.I.M.P. ) ( Gramatik vs 50 Cent )

   03 - Engelwood - Come On Down And Party And Bullshit ( Engelwood vs Notorious Big )

   04 - DJ Useo & Chocomang - Dr Mabuse Time ( Propaganda vs Owl City & CRJ vs Disturbed ) ( Long Version )

   05 - zachsyrylo - Viva la Dreams ( Taylor Swift vs Coldplay )

   06 - D|S -High For Fire ( Ed Sheeran vs M83 vs Ellie Goulding vs Passenger ) ( Kygo Remix Mashup )

   07 - Breathing Room - Playing Games ( Destiny's Child vs starRo vs Vallis Alps )

   08 - Joan Caramba - Dangerous Whisper ( David Guetta vs George Michael vs Busta Rhymes )

   09 - DJ Arique - Da Uptown Funk ( Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars vs Daft Punk )

   10 - BilljDj - City Thriller Rock Burn Down ( William Pitt vs Michael Jackson vs Linkin Park vs Maroon 5 )

   11 - Djampo - SAXo Devotion ( Laidback Luke & Tujamo vs Bingo Players vs Laurent Wolf )

   12 - DRA'man - Bouge de là (Trung mashup) ( Mc Solaar vs Skrillex )

   13 - HODJ - Swaggle That Dope ( Future vs RL Grime vs SwaggleRock )

   14 - DJ Axcess - All Of My Children (Every Breath You Let Go ) ( John Legend vs Robert Miles vs David Guetta vs The Police )

   15 - ToTom - (Can't You) Funk Like I Do ( Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson vs Filter & Crystal Method )

   16 - Matthew's Mashups - Rather Play Poker ( Clean Bandit vs Jessie Glyne & Lady GaGa )

   17 - oki - Freedom ( David Hasselhof vs Rage Against The Machine )

Tell your friends if you like the record. They may appreciate it.

Before I stifle it, I'd like to mention the newest DJ Useo Mashup Showcase podcast ( #12 ) featuring 30 minutes of AtoZ mashups here

It's doing really well for less than a day. Lots of Beatles in it too.

Catch y'all next week.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Woad, occasionally known as Asp of Jerusalem, has long been a source of dye. What color dye does woad produce?

      Blue                                                      Source

Isatis tinctoria, with woad or glastum as the common name, is a flowering plant in the family Brassicaceae. It is commonly called dyer's woad. It is occasionally known as Asp of Jerusalem. Woad is also the name of a blue dye produced from the leaves of the plant.

Long important as a source of blue dye, it has been cultivated throughout Europe, especially in Western and southern Europe, since ancient times. In medieval times there were important woad-growing regions in England, Germany and France. Towns such as Toulouse became prosperous from the woad trade. Woad was eventually replaced by the stronger indigo and, in the early 20th century, both woad and indigo were replaced by synthetic indigos.        Source

Baron Dave was first, and correct, with:
   Blue. Battle blue, and usually worn with out much else. Hardly a fair question for those of us who have sung The Woad Song. Best grunted in a group of hardy warriors, here's a version with the lyrics:

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

Bulking Up On Researchers

John Oliver

John Oliver says that he's hired three new researchers to help with what has become his HBO show's signature, a long-form take on a newsy subject where it's often hard to figure out where he will find the comedy.

Oliver's show, "Last Week Tonight," returns Sunday after being on hiatus since November. He'll make 35 new episodes between now and November 2015.

His boss, HBO chief executive Richard Plepler, said Tuesday that he can't think of any HBO show that has broken through in the zeitgeist as fast as Oliver's, which debuted last April. "Last Week Tonight" has become known for segments, often longer than half of the 30-minute show time, that have taken on topics like net neutrality, the Miss America pageant's finances, translators in the Afghan war and anti-gay laws in Uganda.

Initially, "Last Week Tonight" had one person on staff with a background in journalism at the New York Times Magazine to help with newsier segments. The show has since added another person who used to work for the Times magazine, someone who worked at ProPublica and another former Al Jazeera staff member.

'Rediscovered' Novel To Be Published

Harper Lee

"To Kill a Mockingbird" will not be Harper Lee's only published book after all.

Publisher Harper announced Tuesday that "Go Set a Watchman," a novel the Pulitzer Prize-winning author completed in the 1950s and put aside, will be released July 14. Rediscovered last fall, "Go Set a Watchman" is essentially a sequel to "To Kill a Mockingbird," although it was finished earlier.

Reactions ranged from euphoria (Oprah Winfrey issued a statement saying, "I couldn't be happier if my name was Scout") to skepticism that the new book will be of the same quality as "Mockingbird." Biographer Charles J. Shields noted that Lee was a "beginning author" when she wrote "Watchman."

The 304-page book will be Lee's second, and her first new work in print in more than 50 years, among the longest gaps in history for a major writer.

Growing Divide Between Rich, Poor

Finishing College

There is a growing divide between who earns a bachelor's degree by age 24, with the gap between the nation's richest and poorest students doubling during the last four decades, according to a report released Tuesday.

The percentage of students from the lowest-income families - those making $34,160 a year or less - earning a bachelor's degree has inched up just 3 points since 1970, rising from 6 to 9 percent by 2013.

Meanwhile, college completion for students from the wealthiest families has risen dramatically, climbing from 44 to 77 percent.

Among the report's other findings: The percentage of students from all income levels enrolling in college has increased during the last four decades. There was a 46-point gap between rich and poor in 1970, compared with a 36-point gap in 2012.

But completion gaps are growing: While 99 percent of students entering college from the highest-income families - those making $108,650 or more a year - graduate by 24, just 21 percent of students from the lowest-income families finish by that age.

Pope Frankie's Future Saint

Archbishop Oscar Romero

Pope Francis on Tuesday ruled that Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero, who was murdered by a right-wing death squad in 1980 and is an icon of the Roman Catholic Church in Latin America, had died as a martyr and will be beatified, the Vatican said.

The Vatican said the pope had approved a decree that Romero had been killed "in hatred of the faith", ratifying recommendations by a commission of cardinals and theological experts.

Francis, the first Latin American pope, unblocked Romero's sainthood process shortly after his election in March, 2013.

The process had stalled under popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI because they saw Romero as too close to Liberation Theology, a radical movement that emphasised helping the poor and opposing injustice.

The murder was one of the most shocking of the long conflict between a series of U.S.-backed governments and leftist rebels in which thousands were killed by right-wing and military death squads. No one was ever brought to justice for Romero's killing.

Wake-up Call


Liar Lies Again

Lance Armstrong

Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong hit two parked cars after a night of partying in Aspen but agreed to let his longtime girlfriend take the blame to avoid national attention, police reports show.

Aspen police cited Armstrong with failing to report an accident and speeding weeks after the Dec. 28 accident, but only after his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, admitted to lying for him.

Hansen initially told police she had been driving home from an Aspen Art Museum party when she lost control of Armstrong's GMC Yukon on the icy roads, hitting the cars. She said she drove because "Lance had a little bit to drink," according to the reports.

Detectives later interviewed Hansen, who eventually told them Armstrong was driving, but they had both decided to let her take the blame.

'Power Ranger' Not Charged

Ricardo Medina

Prosecutors have declined to file charges against a former "Power Rangers" actor arrested in the stabbing death of his housemate in Southern California.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office said Tuesday that prosecutors have asked sheriff's investigators for further investigation regarding the weekend death of Joshua Sutter.

Deputies arrested Ricardo Medina on Saturday. Authorities said Medina stabbed Sutter in the abdomen with a sword, then called 911 and waited for help.

Medina played the Red Ranger on "Power Rangers Wild Force," which aired in 2002.

Fox "News" Suit

Lindsay Lohan

Fox News said on Tuesday it will defend itself against the actress Lindsay Lohan and her mother Dina, who are suing the network for defamation over a segment accusing the Lohans of doing cocaine.

"We removed the segment from our archives altogether last February and also apologized on-air," a Fox News spokeswoman said. "At that time, the Lohans did not make any demands for money, and we are surprised they are doing so now."

The comment was made by Michelle Fields on the Feb. 4, 2014, show hosted by Sean Hannity.

The Lohans filed the complaint against Fox News, Hannity and Fields in a New York state court in Manhattan on Monday.

Website Operator Convicted


A San Diego man has been convicted of running a "revenge porn" website where people posted nude pictures of their ex-lovers, who then had to pay the man to take down the images.

Kevin Bollaert, 28, was found guilty Monday of 27 counts, including identity theft and extortion, and faces up to 20 years in prison. The San Diego County Superior Court jury was unable to reach verdicts on two charges of identity theft and conspiracy, and a judge declared a mistrial on the counts.

It was believed to be the first conviction of an operator of a revenge-porn website, although two months ago a Los Angeles man who posted a topless photo of his ex-girlfriend on Facebook was sentenced to a year in jail for violating California's new revenge-porn law.

That law was enacted in October 2013, after the incidents for which Bollaert was charged. It makes it a misdemeanour to post identifiable nude pictures of someone else online without their permission and with the intent of causing serious emotional distress or humiliation.

Bollaert also ran another now-defunct website,, where victims could go and be charged up to $350 to have the images removed.

Park Opening Delayed To 2016

Disney China

US entertainment giant Disney's first theme park in mainland China will have its opening delayed to next year, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The $5.5 billion park in Shanghai's Pudong district was originally due to welcome its first customers this year, but will only do so in the first half of 2016, the paper said Monday, citing people close to the project.

The English-language China Daily newspaper reported in January that there might be "some difficulty" with a 2015 opening. Disney and its Chinese partner, Shanghai Shendi Group, broke ground on the park in April 2011.

The facility will be Disney's third in Asia after Hong Kong and Tokyo. It also has parks in the US states of California and Florida, as well as near the French capital Paris.

Four Out Of Five Bogus

Herbal Supplements

Bottles of Walmart-brand echinacea, an herb said to ward off colds, were found to contain no echinacea at all. GNC-brand bottles of St. John's wort, touted as a cure for depression, held rice, garlic and a tropical houseplant, but not a trace of the herb.

In fact, DNA testing on hundreds of bottles of store-brand herbal supplements sold as treatments for everything from memory loss to prostate trouble found that four out of five contained none of the herbs on the label. Instead, they were packed with cheap fillers such as wheat, rice, beans or houseplants.

Based on the testing commissioned by his office, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Tuesday he has sent letters to the four major store chains involved - GNC, Target, Walmart and Walgreens - demanding that they immediately stop selling adulterated or mislabeled dietary supplements.

Schneiderman said the supplements pose serious risks. People who have allergies or are taking certain medications can suffer dangerous reactions from herbal concoctions that contain substances not listed on the label, he said.

The herbal supplement industry criticized the method used to analyze the samples and raised questions about the reliability of the findings.

Maserati A6G 2000 Gran Sport Berlinetta Frua displayed during a preview for an auction of vintage cars Retromobile show in Paris, Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015, after a treasure trove of classic cars was discovered after spending 50-years languishing in storage on a farm. 60 rusting motors, which include a vintage Ferrari California Spider, a Bugatti and a very rare Maserati, were found gathering dust and hidden under piles of newspapers in garages and outbuildings at a property in France. The cars were collected from the 1950s to the 1970s by entrepreneur Roger Baillon, who dreamt of restoring them to their former glory and displaying them in a museum, but, his plans were dashed as his business struggled, forcing the sale of about 50 vehicles, to be auctioned off on Feb. 6.

In Memory

Valerie Stevenson

Valerie Stevenson, a singer and actress who starred on the short-lived 1980s CBS musical series Dreams, has died. She was 52.

Stevenson died Jan. 10 of liver disease at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, her family announced.

Stevenson starred alongside John Stamos (then coming off a successful turn on the ABC soap opera General Hospital) and Jami Gertz as drummer-singer Lisa Copley in Dreams, a show about a rock band looking for a record contract.

It was quickly canceled in 1984 after a handful of episodes, but Stevenson later landed a CBS recording contract.

A native of Philadelphia, Stevenson moved at age 16 to Nashville, where she worked at the Grand Ole Opry and as a background vocalist for Louise Mandrell. She also had her own show on The Nashville Network.

Stevenson later appeared on The A-Team, Our Family Honor, The Ellen Burstyn Show and Guiding Light. She most recently lived in Miami.

Survivors include her husband, Lance; daughter, Samantha; sisters, Sharon and Virginia; and brother, William.

In lieu of flowers, Stevenson requested that donations be made to the University of Maryland School of Medicine Liver Transplant Research & Education Fund.
