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.
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.

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."
Kristi Harrison: The 4 Least Dignified Things About The Grammys (Cracked)
Let's be honest. If you're interested in keeping up with good music you're better off adopting a cool 15-year-old or inventing a time machine that perpetually holds you in Donald Glover's house than you are watching awards shows. On the other hand, if you're interested in finding out what everyone was listening to a year and a half ago, the Grammys are probably your jam.
C. Coville: 5 Ways Movies Start to Suck As You Get Older (Cracked)
There's nothing quite as bittersweet as reliving the pop culture of your youth. On the one hand, childhood movies are a portal back to a time when you thought the world was fair and good and that dreams could come true. On the other, they'll make you realize that the dog puppet at the end of The NeverEnding Story wasn't really that scary at all.
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.
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."

The answer is Portugal, which is famous for...ah...for being

Going with a WAG here - Macau was part of China.
DJ Useo answered:
China is the answer. "Tai-Pan" the book by James Clavell mentions it a bit.

Portugal I have no love for the Portuguese. John Wick for Lois.
That would be Portugal... an' it was the last European Robber-Baron colony in Asia...

... 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...

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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
A Femen activist is led away by police officers Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015 as she protests in front of the Lille courthouse in Lille, northern France, where Dominique Strauss-Kahn goes on trial for sex charges in France. The former head of the International Monetary Fund, whose career went down in flames amid accusations of sexually assaulting a hotel maid in New York, is facing similarly shocking charges in France: aggravated pimping and involvement in a prostitution ring operating out of luxury hotels.

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."
The former electrician said that one day, Picasso's wife Jacqueline gave him a box with the 271 works of art inside.
