In the mashup world, there's some big names that are fairly well known around the world. They're mixers who consistently gift us very popular, & impressive tracks. Let's take a look at what a group of those talents are posting this week. -
Please to be enjoying these varied bootleg mixes. None are less than great!
I'll be back next week with a cool new mashup collection! Have the day of good!
FYI - I posted a new track using Barnes & Barnes' "There's a Party In My Pants", & to my surprise it got over 3000 plays in less than a day! Woot! ( Go figure, lol ) I really clubbed it up. It's called "Cockney Thug Party" ( Barnes & Barnes vs Rusko )
End the Tampon Tax (NY Times)
Though necessities like food and medical supplies are exempt from sales taxes in most states, all but a few tax sanitary pads and tampons. Now efforts are building to repeal this so-called "tampon tax" and help ensure that those who need these products can afford them.

"21 Tricks You Don't Notice In Great Movies (Your Brain Does)" (Cracked)
We know that filmmaking is more than just a bunch of actors reading a script while some dude points a camera and records it all. There's a lot of careful direction and editing and cinematography going on that is required to take your movie up another level from made-for-TV-but-specifically-made-for-SyFy. But even further than that, there are myriad subtle touches a filmmaker has to give to their movie to make it truly amazing -- some that even go as far as tricking you into feeling a certain way while you're watching a particular scene.
Joseph Frank "Buster" Keaton (October 4, 1895 - February 1, 1966) was an American actor, director, producer, writer, and stunt performer. He was best known for his silent films, in which his trademark was physical comedy with a consistently stoic, deadpan expression, earning him the nickname "The Great Stone Face". Keaton was recognized as the seventh-greatest film director by Entertainment Weekly. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Keaton the 21st greatest male star of Classic Hollywood Cinema.
Orson Welles stated that Keaton's The General is "the greatest comedy ever made, the greatest Civil War film ever made, and perhaps the greatest film ever made".

As it may have seemed, he fluidly conveyed emotion without words. Even
when he spoke, as in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (one
of, if not the last film) his face spoke volumes. Buster Keaton.

Buster Keaton, hung out at the beach in his later years
This question stumped me, so I looked it up: Buster Keaton.
Way too warm for February, and no rain in the forecast. I sure hope this is an anomaly and not the early end of winter.
Dale of Diamond Springs, Norspringcali for a bit responded:
Buster Keaton had a good reason for being stone-faced. One of the more creative early Hollywood filmmakers was he. But oh yo…enter the alcoholism…and the bizarre behaviors associated with dipsomaniacs! Occasionally he did smile. His craft is still watchable today. His wife Natalie Talmadge cleaned him out financially and took away his sons beyond his reach…until adulthood. Straight forward…no fucking bullshit today…
DJ Useo answered:
Buster Keaton. I was actually enjoying a great film of his last week! I was astonished at the stunts he did himself. It was great fun, & also nerve-wracking!

Martin Shkreli (R-Pustule) faces a new legal headache, a lawsuit claiming that his $2 million Wu-Tang Clan album contains illustrations ripped off from a New York artist, who now wants the former drug executive to pay for them.
In a complaint filed on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court, Jason Koza said he never allowed his fan art depicting Wu-Tang members to be used in packaging for the hip-hop group's "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin," the sole copy of which Shkreli bought.
Shkreli has bragged that he had no plans to listen to the album, but bought it to "keep it from the people." The 32-year-old is also known for sparking outrage last year among patients, doctors and politicians after his former company Turing Pharmaceuticals raised the price of the anti-parisitic infection drug Daraprim by more than 5,000 percent.
Koza, 34, of Copiague, New York, said he thought his nine works would appear only on the website WuDisciples.blogspot.com.
But the Fashion Institute of Technology graduate now blames Wu-Tang leader Robert "RZA" Diggs for including them in the "Shaolin" album, and Shkreli for allowing three works depicting Inspectah Deck, Ol' Dirty Bastard and Raekwon to accompany a Jan. 29 article at Vice.com.

A terse letter from Andrew Clyde's credit card-processing company explained it was discontinuing his corporate account because his Georgia firearms business "no longer met our underwriting guidelines." In a panic, Clyde called three other companies, which denied him, too.
After hearing from Clyde and others in the gun business who reported similar treatment, the industry's trade association launched efforts in several Republican-led Legislatures over the past year seeking to restrict discrimination by financial institutions.
But the legislation being pushed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation wouldn't offer a blanket protection for all businesses - just those "engaged in the lawful commerce of firearms or ammunition products."
Similar legislation being considered in Kansas, Alabama and Missouri also was initiated by the NSSF in response to an effort started in 2013 by the U.S. Department of Justice called Operation Choke Point. The program sought to curtail financial institutions from engaging in business with what it deemed high-risk industries for fraud, such as pornography and firearms.
A British paedophilia survivor who has been asked to step down from a Vatican panel on the issue told AFP on Monday that he felt betrayed by Pope Francis.
"Of course Pope Francis has established he is part of the problem," Peter Saunders said in an interview with AFPTV, during which he insisted he had not resigned and that only the pontiff himself could force him to quit the Vatican commission.
"That breaks my heart because when I met him 18 months ago I thought there was a sincerity and a willingness to make things happen, and I am afraid that has been dashed now."
Saunders, the head of Britain's National Association for People Abused in Childhood, was personally asked to join the panel by Pope Francis.
But Saunders now says he realises the commission was always going to be about "smoke and mirrors" and that he is convinced the Church will never act alone to cure the "cancer" in its midst.
Angela Orosz weighed just a third of what a normal infant does when she was born in Auschwitz, and only escaped death at the Nazi concentration camp because she was so weak she was "unable to cry".
The 71-year-old will appear in a German court this month to give her harrowing testimony against Reinhold Hanning, a former guard at Auschwitz, who she says was part of the "killing machine" that destroyed 1.1 million lives in the camp.
"Because so much time has passed since then, it's important that the last remaining survivors speak out," Orosz told AFP from Montreal, Canada, where she now lives.
Orosz's birth in Auschwitz was nothing short of a miracle, given the abuse that her mother suffered in the camp in occupied Poland. To her knowledge, she was one of two babies born in Auschwitz who survived.
A porn actress has dropped her $500,000 assault lawsuit against reality TV personality Josh Duggar amid evidence that her claims were fabricated.
Stamm-Northup is a San Diego woman known as Danica Dillon in adult films. Her lawsuit says that she met Duggar while working at a Philadelphia strip club last spring and that Duggar assaulted her when they went to a hotel to have sex.
Evidence shows Duggar wasn't in Philadelphia at the time.
His family's wholesome reality show, "19 Kids and Counting," was pulled from the TLC network in May over revelations that he had molested four of his sisters and a baby sitter.

Monsanto will pay an $80 million penalty and several executives will pay smaller amounts to settle federal allegations that the agribusiness giant misstated its earnings by not properly disclosing the costs of a rebate program for its Roundup weed-killer.
The Securities and Exchange Commission says Monsanto didn't properly account for millions of dollars paid to distributors as rebates, which had the effect of distorting the company's earnings reports for 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Monsanto Co., based in St. Louis, agreed to the penalty without admitting wrongdoing. It also agreed to hire a consultant to review the company's financial reporting procedures for rebates.
In addition, the SEC said Tuesday that three of Monsanto's accounting and sales executives will pay individual penalties ranging from $30,000 to $55,000.
CEO Hugh Grant also paid back $3,165,852 in bonuses tied to the company's financial performance, while former Chief Financial Officer Carl Casale repaid $728,843 in bonuses. Regulators said they found no personal misconduct by Grant or Casale, but the company said securities rules required the repayment.
Viacom Inc CEO Philippe Dauman railed at critics of his leadership after a fifth straight quarter missing Wall Street's sales estimates on Tuesday, unnerving investors and sending the media company's shares down more than 21 percent to a five-year low.
They were Dauman's first public remarks since replacing the ailing 92-year-old Sumner Redstone as executive chairman last week, an appointment that was opposed by Redstone's daughter and greeted by skepticism by some investors.
Viacom and to a lesser extent CBS, both majority-owned by Redstone, have come under scrutiny in light of Redstone's declining health, which is the subject of a lawsuit brought by one of his ex-girlfriends.
Investors are increasingly concerned over Viacom's handling of its relationships with the cable and telecom companies such as Dish Network Corp , Comcast Corp and AT&T Inc that pay to distribute its shows.
Viacom cut its fiscal 2016 growth outlook for the fees it gets from affiliates to "low to mid single digits" from high single digits, citing numerous issues.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is facing criticism after a massive red carpet was laid over public roads for his motorcade during a trip to open a social housing project in a Cairo suburb, where he preached austerity.
Images of the giant red carpet prompted a wave of ridicule on social media, with a hashtag mocking the carpet trending in Arabic. A local newspaper devoted much of its front page Monday to the incident.
"How is the president asking us to tighten our belts while the 4 kilometer (2.5 mile) red carpet says otherwise?" read a headline in Al-Maqal newspaper, whose editor-in-chief, Ibrahim Eissa, is one of Egypt's most prominent TV commentators.
El-Sissi, who as military chief led the overthrow of an elected Islamist leader in 2013, has staked his legitimacy on reviving the economy after years of unrest, including by trimming costly state subsidies, a theme he touched upon at Saturday's event.
