M Is FOR MASHUP - February 11th, 2015

The Best DJ Useo Mashups Volume Four

By DJ Useo




With invaluable input from the Useoettes ( three ladies ) I gathered together two discs worth of my more well received mashups into my 4th best of collection. Simply titled " BEST OF DJ USEO vol 4" ( www.groovytimewithdjuseo.blogspot.com/2015/02/best-of-dj-useo-vol-4.html ) , the contents include 35 swell mp3 tracks, with covers included, & extra text files chock full of pertinent information.



















I hosted the files at a couple of the better sites for that kind of thing, & I chose one track to be the preview. "Deep Fever Fear" ( The Black Keys vs Sidekick vs Phobia ) can be streamed, or downloaded, so feel free to see if this album might appeal to you by checking the preview here
( soundcloud.com/dj-useo/deep-fever-fear-the-black-keys-vs-sidekick-vs-phobia )



















As many of you know, I normally post three tracks at a time, one mainstream-y, one kind'a alternative, & one completely left field mix. This new collection is composed of selections from the first two types. I'm leaving the weird tracks for my next "Frikkenfrack : Useos Strangest Boots" compilation, so you don't need to worry about finding stuff like that among these.



















The full playlist is found as jpg's here
( www.groovytimewithdjuseo.blogspot.com/2015/02/best-of-dj-useo-vol-4.html ) , but I will mention three tracks just to wet your appetite. These three are sure-fire attention grabbers sure to please you.



















01- 'I Saw Her Standing There Running Down A Dream' ( Tom Petty vs Beatles )




















02 - 'I Am Dust Beat' ( Gary Numan vs Simian Mobile Disco )



















03 - 'Uncontrollable Hello' ( Devo vs Cheap Trick ) ( Reversed Version )



























You can find the first three volumes of my 'best ofs' here
( djuseomashupalbums.blogspot.com/ )























Altogether, I think you'll experience hours of fun listening to the combined rhythms, & melodies found on these free collections.























For those of you hungry for mashups by others, I just posted my new "DJ Useo Mashup Album Cuts Podcast 2015" which is an hour & a half of tracks I culled from various mashup albums released during the last five years. Check it out to thrill to the superior work of bootleggers like Elocnep, The Kleptones, Frogthedawg, Party Ben, & many more. There's all kinds of styles contained, & people have already told me it plays so fast, it feels like a much shorter show. Stream, or download here

Happy Valentines Day to everyone. Catch you soon. - Konrad

David Bruce: Wise Up! Death (Athens News)
Rabbi Rabinowitz, who was both poor and pious, lived above a grocery store in New York City. To let people know where he lived, a sign hung outside the grocery store. When the good rabbi died, he was given a decent funeral, but not enough money was available for a tombstone. Therefore, members of the rabbi's congregation used the sign from the grocery store as a gravestone: "Rabbi Rabinowitz is upstairs."

Let's be honest.

Trivia Question from Yesterday


From the mid-16th century until late 1999, Macau (also spelled Macao) was a colony of what nation?


      Portugal                                                      Source


Macau (also spelled Macao) is one of the two Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China, the other being Hong Kong. Macau lies on the western side of the Pearl River Delta across from Hong Kong, which is about 64 kilometers to the east, and it is also bordered by Guangdong Province to the north and the South China Sea to the east and south. With an estimated population of around 624,000 living in an area of 31.3 km (12.1 sq mi), it is the most densely populated region in the world.

A former Portuguese colony, Macau was administered by Portugal from the mid-16th century until late 1999, when it was the last remaining European colony in Asia.        Source







Charlie was first, and correct, with:
   At least Macau hasn't suffered the sort of problems afflicted on places like Angola and East Timor after decolonization.

  Of course, maybe most of us are actually residents of the center of the real "last empire."

Man pulls out cocaine while trying to bail out friend
(The link proves that I'm not making this up - but, who could?)

... a 51-year-old Roseville man showed up at the police station Saturday afternoon to bail out a buddy who had been arrested for operating a vehicle while under the influence "The bail was $300 and he presented three $100 bills to the station officer," said Lt. Eric Reincke. "When he pulled out the cash, there was a small yellow baggie between the bills. When the officer asked what it was, the man replied 'just garbage.' The officer noticed it looked like cocaine, which a field test confirmed...

"Yes, I am really, I mean really, stupid"

(Oh, an' if'n ya don't read the article - which is cool - I jus' want ya ta know that this really stupid guy's first name is 'Royal' - seriously - and he has, o' course now, Royal-ly screwed himself ~ Har!)

BartCop

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 active@bartcop.com.

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 bartcop.com

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.

Leaving 'The Daily Show'

Jon Stewart

Comedian Jon Stewart, famed for his biting television satire of politicians and the media, will leave his job as host of Comedy Central's parody newscast "The Daily Show" later this year, he told his studio audience at the end of Tuesday night's episode.

Stewart, 52, who has starred on the show since 1999, said he had no specific plans for his next career move, but was thankful for the opportunity to host the program.

The announcement came after Comedy Central's other big name, former "Daily Show" contributor Stephen Colbert, ended his tenure as star of companion show "The Colbert Report" and left the network in December to succeed the retiring David Letterman as host of the "Late Show" on CBS.

The New York-based "The Daily Show," which airs weeknights at 11 p.m. on the Viacom Inc-owned Comedy Central, is expected to continue, the network said, but a replacement for Stewart has yet to be named.

Suspended For 6 Months

Brian Williams

Brian Williams has been suspended from "NBC Nightly News" without pay for six months, the network announced Tuesday.

The announcement comes amid an ongoing internal investigation into whether Williams exaggerated stories during his public appearances as managing editor of the top-rated evening news program, both on NBC and elsewhere.

Last week, the embattled anchor apologized after it was discovered he embellished events that occurred in 2003 while he was covering the war in Iraq. Subsequently, other stories, including his reporting from New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, have come under intense scrutiny.

"Brian has a responsibility to be truthful and to uphold the high standards of the news division at all times," NBC News president Deborah Turness wrote in a memo to staffers.

Piano Undamaged

Liberace

The owner of a Massachusetts music store says a rhinestone-covered grand piano once owned by Liberace wasn't damaged when part of the roof collapsed under the weight of snow.

Rob Norris said after an inspection Tuesday that the piano wasn't located in the section where the roof caved in. The Liberace piano has 88,888 rhinestones and has been appraised for $500,000.

Rockland Fire Chief Scott Duffey says a roughly 100-foot-by-100-foot section of the pitched roof fell into the showroom Tuesday morning at the Piano Mill. No one was inside. Duffey said more sections fell later.

Rockland received 29 inches of snow Monday.

Grizzlies Exiting Hibernation Early

Yellowstone

Grizzly bears at Yellowstone National Park are emerging from winter hibernation weeks earlier than normal because of the arrival of spring-like weather, with warmer-than-usual temperatures and rain instead of snow, a park spokesman said on Tuesday.

Yellowstone on Monday confirmed the first report of a grizzly roaming the central part of the park, where it was seen scavenging on a bison carcass, according to spokesman Al Nash.

Nash said the emergence of grizzlies comes roughly a month earlier than in recent years, with the first sightings of the bears from 2012 to 2014 happening between March 4 and March 14.

Grizzlies are ravenous after periods of hibernation that can span months and in which eating and other activities are suspended, Nash said. The outsized, hump-shouldered bruins typically feed on the carcasses of winter-killed animals like bison, elk and deer for the quick intake of needed calories, he said.

Governor Rescinds Protections

Kansas

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback (R-Neanderthal), a conservative Republican re-elected in November, on Tuesday rescinded an executive order issued by a Democratic predecessor that offered protections for gay and bisexual state workers.

Brownback said he was rescinding a 2007 order signed by former Governor Kathleen Sebelius that established a "protected class of rights" for state employees specifically for sexual orientation and gender identity.

In its place, Brownback said he was issuing an executive order that would boost state employment-related aid for veterans and disabled people, while reaffirming the state's "commitment" to employment practices that do not discriminate based on "race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry or age."

Brownback has been open about his opposition to same-sex marriage during his long career in public office, which included stints in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. He was elected governor of Kansas in 2010.

White Privilege

History of Lynching

Lynchings in which mobs raided jailhouses to hang, torture and burn alive black men, sometimes leading to public executions in courthouse squares, occurred more often in the U.S. South than was previously known, according to a report released on Tuesday.

The slightest transgression could spur violence, the Equal Justice Initiative found, as it documented 3,959 victims of lynching in a dozen Southern states.

The group said it found 700 more lynchings of black people in the region than had been previously reported. The research took five years and covered 1877 to 1950, the period from the end of post-Civil War Reconstruction to the years immediately following World War Two.

The group said the report was aimed at spurring Americans to face the lasting impact of their history. It also would like to see historical markers placed across the South to note sites where lynchings occurred.

Calling the violence racial terror designed to subjugate black people through fear, Stevenson and his associates sought to catalog every lynching in 12 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Excommunicated

John Dehlin

A Mormon man who gained notoriety over the past decade for running a website that offers doubting Latter-day Saints a forum to chat has been kicked out of the religion.

John Dehlin announced the decision from regional church leaders Tuesday. He becomes the second high-profile church member to be excommunicated in the past year in what Mormon scholars consider to be the Utah-based faith's way of keeping dissenters in line.

A regional church leader in North Logan told Dehlin in a letter that Mormon officials made a unanimous decision to excommunicate him for apostasy, defined by the church as repeatedly acting in clear public opposition to the faith.

While not a lifelong ban, excommunication is a rare move that amounts to the harshest punishment available for a church member.

271 'Stolen' Works

Picasso

A former electrician and his wife who kept 271 works of art by Picasso in their garage for close to 40 years went on trial in France on Tuesday accused of possessing stolen goods.

Pierre Le Guennec, now 75 and retired, says the world-famous artist and his wife Jacqueline gave him the oil canvases, drawings and Cubist collages when he was doing work on the last property they lived in before Picasso died in 1973.

But some of the artist's heirs, including his son Claude, suspect otherwise and filed a complaint against the couple, who were charged in 2011.

And in a significant twist to the trial on Tuesday, Claude Picasso's lawyer accused Le Guennec of being the "front" for a "case of international artwork laundering."
