M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - June 10th, 2015

Mashups From France!

By DJ Useo

Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but there's actually people living on the other side of that big body of salt water. Not a lot is known about them aside from they are called "The France". Well, I've uncovered some hitherto unknown information regarding their activities. It seems they actively practice an audio ritual involving cutting, & looping label music into new musical patterns much akin to our "mashups".

The mixes they make are newly available in the 4th volume of "La Masheillaise IV - Mashups francophones". I am personally impressed that the organizer of this project, Chocomang, has managed to not only gather together such gifted talent so successfully, but has repeated it four times. The language barrier inherent in this for English speakers is hardly noticeable, & the music holds no barriers at all. I wager that most people would acclimate quickly, especially after a few wet ones.

The people mixing on this two disc collection reads like a dream assortment to those of us following the bootleg scene. We've received countless instant gems from the likes of Amoraboy, Athom, ToToM, & Fissunix. They're only the beginning, though, as many more accomplished home producers hit the software to give you an entirely new perspective on modern French music. The best of French artists like Yelle, Ilona, & Billy Ze Kick intermingle seamlessly with non-French stars like Green Day, The Black Keys, & Avicii.

So, you realize that the former three excellent volumes are still available. This means you'll be astounded for the next few weeks with a marvelous bounty of French mashups. Zut Alors, I say! That's the extent of my French language knowledge. Aside from that, I got'ta say I'm mighty happy to welcome this new addition of cool people into the rest of us humans. I wonder why we didn't make them welcome before? ;) In any case, big kudos to Chocomang & all the others. Youse mugs rock!

Full album here, plus previous volumes

I'll be back next week with a new super cool all star mashup collection! ( & it's not SUMMER BOOTY 2015…yet )

"There's no precedent in the modern history of the presidency for what we've seen over the last month," said Republican operative Steve Schmidt.

We've just never seen an American administration collapse from a credibility perspective as quickly as this one has."

Trivia Question from Yesterday

In Italian, it's Nella vecchia fattoria, in German it's Onkel Jörg hat einen Bauernhof, and in French it's Dans la ferme de Mathurin. What is the title of this children's song in English?

       "Old MacDonald Had a Farm"                                                      Source

"Old MacDonald Had a Farm" is a children's song and nursery rhyme about a farmer named MacDonald (or McDonald, Macdonald) and the various animals he keeps on his farm. Each verse of the song changes the name of the animal and its respective noise. In many versions, the song is cumulative, with the animal sounds from all the earlier verses added to each subsequent verse.

The Italian version is Nella vecchia fattoria (In The Old Farm).

The German version is Onkel Jörg hat einen Bauernhof.

In French, Dans la ferme de Mathurin (literally "In Mathurin's Farm").        Source

Randall was first and correct with:
   Old MacDonald

  moo moo       oink oink       quack quack

Alan J wrote:
   Old MacDonald Had a Farm.

Mark. said:
   I took German in high school about a hundred years ago and would translate "Onkel Jörg hat einen Bauernhof" as "Uncle George has a Farm," which is very similar to the English ditty "Old MacDonald Had a Farm.

mj replied:
   Even though I never studied any of those languages
  I'll take a shot. "Old McDonald Had a Farm".

Adam answered:
   Old MacDonald Had A Farm

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   Old MacDonald Had a Farm

Kevin K. in Washington, DC said:
   That would be "Old McDonald Had a Farm".
  Like Trump's speeches, I imagine "Uncle George Had a Pig Yard" sounds better in the original German.

Deborah wrote:
   I listened to the Italian version on YouTube: It's "Old MacDonald Had a Farm." Ee-i-ee-i-o.
  We had 3.15 inches of rain yesterday. Although it stopped by 10 pm, there's an amazing amount of standing water, and that's just in my backyard.
  Loved the sunrise and blue skies this morning.
  Hope you're high and dry.

Billy in Cypress replied:
   From what I remember of my German, I would say it is "Old MacDonald Had a Farm". Unfortunately, the version by CPDJT-ID has different lyrics than I remember.

  Old MACDONALD had a farm
     Trump is the greatest!
     And on his farm he had a cow
     Trump is the greatest!
     With a oink oink here
     And a oink oink there
     Here an oink, there an oink
     Everywhere an oink oink
     Old MacDonald had a farm
     Trump is the greatest!

  Old MACDONALD had a farm
     Trump is the greatest!
     And on his farm he had a pig
     Trump is the greatest!
     With a moo moo here
     And a moo moo there
     Here a moo, there a moo
     Everywhere a moo moo
     Old MacDonald had a farm
     Trump is the greatest!
     (Repeat until the enemies of the people get it right)

  A little know fact about this nursery rhyme is this:The original farmer was a Russian named Ivanov according to Putin.

Dale of the ever precipitating Diamond Springs, Norcali, above the Delta, but mudslides and washouts answered:
   Old Mac Donald Had a Farm. Eee-yi-Eee-yi-Oh-de-friggin-Oh. Let us all cheer for another General in the White House. Which one will it be to lead the coup? It smells like that's the way things in our power structure could shake out. Lots of shiny medals and braids and pomp and shit.

Judge Blocks Texass

Planned Parenthood

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Texas can't cut off Medicaid dollars to Planned Parenthood over secretly recorded videos taken by anti-abortion activists in 2015 that launched Republican efforts across the U.S. to defund the nation's largest abortion provider.

An injunction issued by U.S. District Sam Sparks of Austin comes after he delayed making decision in January and essentially bought Planned Parenthood an extra month in the state's Medicaid program.

Texas is now at least the sixth state where federal courts have kept Planned Parenthood eligible for Medicaid reimbursements for non-abortion services, although a bigger question remains over whether President Donald Trump will federally defund the organization.

Sparks' decision preserves what Planned Parenthood says are cancer screenings, birth control access and other health services for nearly 11,000 low-income women at 30 clinics. Texas originally intended to boot Planned Parenthood in January but Sparks told the state to wait pending his ruling. Arkansas, Alabama, Kansas, Mississippi and Louisiana have also had similar efforts blocked.

"A secretly recorded video, fake names, a grand jury indictment, congressional investigations - these are the building blocks of a best-selling novel rather than a case concerning the interplay of federal and state authority through the Medicaid program," Sparks wrote. "Yet, rather than a villain plotting to take over the world, the subject of this case is the State of Texas's efforts to expel a group of health care providers from a social health care program for families and individuals with limited resources."

Rally Against Trump In Boston


Hundreds of scientists gathered in Boston's Copley Square over the weekend to express their concerns about, and to protest against the policies of President Donald Trump's administration.

The rally, which included crowds holding bright signs such as "Stand up for science," "Science is not a liberal conspiracy," "Science, not silence" and "Climate change is NOT a controversy," had sponsors that included the Union of Concerned Scientists, Greenpeace USA, Mass Sierra Club and groups from universities in the area, according to Scientific American .

Although not directly sponsored by or affiliated with the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) - a five-day conference that opened nearby on Wednesday with the theme "Serving Society Through Science Policy" - the protest rally was offered support by the CEO of AAAS, who backed plans to hold similar rallies under the banner "March for Science ," scheduled to be held on Earth Day, April 22, in Washington and across multiple cities.

"It is partly because of the previous statements of the president and his appointees on issues such as climate change and vaccination for children which have not been in keeping with good science," Rush Holt, AAAS CEO, explained to BBC News .

"But mostly by what we have seen since the new administration has come in, [which] is silence about science. Very few appointments to positions are filled by people who understand science, very few comments about the importance of science; there is no science advisor in the White House now and we don't know whether there will be one…and so the silence is beginning to sound ominous," he said.

'Hidden Chamber' Invites More Secretive Scans

King Tut

A group of archaeologists has said the tomb of Tutankhamun may hold a hidden chamber containing the tomb of Queen Nefertiti. So far, radar scans have failed to confirm such a chamber.

Now, a physicist plans to lead a team conducting another series of ground-penetrating radar (GPR) scans as a last-ditch effort to find Nefertiti's burial site. In this method, high-frequency radio waves bounce off the ground and off of walls, and the reflected signals can reveal hidden treasures, or empty chambers.This is the third time that this method has been used in Tutankhamun's tomb and it is unclear how the new scans will be different than the others.

In 2015, Nicholas Reeves, director of the Amarna Royal Tombs Project, proposed the idea that a hidden chamber inside King Tut's tomb contained the tomb of Queen Nefertiti. Ground-penetrating radar scans carried out by radar technologist Hirokatsu Watanabe supposedly showed evidence of two hidden chambers. Reeves published a paper presenting his theory in 2015. He did not return a request for comment from Live Science.

Then, in May 2016, a National Geographic team conducted another set of ground-penetrating radar scans.Those scans showed no hidden chambers in King Tut's tomb. However, the National Geographic Society has barred members of that team from talking publicly about their research, said Dean Goodman, one of the leaders of the National Geographic team.

The team signed a nondisclosure agreement with the society, which can't be waived unless the Egyptian antiquities ministry approves, a spokesperson for the society explained.

Germany Sending A Boat To Drift

Arctic Sea

In an effort to better understand the drastic ice melt happening in the Arctic, Germany is sending a boat to drift with the ice for more than a year as part of the International Arctic Drift Expedition.

The vessel that will be set adrift is Germany's Polarstern, one of the most advanced polar research ships in the world. It is designed for research and ice breaking. The plan, called the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate, or MOSAiC, is the first of its kind and will hopefully offer information never before available to climate researchers.

The plan is for the Polarstern, its crew and a team of scientific researchers to enter the forming ice near the East Siberian Sea and begin drifting from there towards the North Pole and then to the Fram Strait by following the Transpolar Drift. The length of the expedition coupled with the planned route will give researchers access to the full cycle of sea ice through the year.

Not only will the ship itself travel with the ice, but the plan is to also set up observation camps alongside the ship. "The ship and the surrounding network will drift with the natural ice drift across the polar cap towards the Atlantic, while the sea ice thickens during winter," says the website that details the expedition.

Researchers already know the temperatures in the Arctic are rising twice as fast as temperatures elsewhere, but other aspects of the changing environment in the Arctic are difficult to predict and model. Year-round research on variables like temperature, atmosphere, evaporation and others is lacking which means climate models can't accurately predict future climate change. Further information about Arctic weather patterns and climate change will help scientists predict how the Arctic is impacting climate change globally, as well as how the Arctic contributes to uncertainty within climate models.

Digby's Hullabaloo


Resigns From Breitbart


Milo Yiannopoulos, the conservative media personality under fire for comments he made that appeared to condone sex with minors, has resigned from Breitbart News, the platform that has helped boost his popularity on the far right.

At a press conference, Yiannopoulos, 32, said that he used a "poor choice of words" in a 2016 interview.

In the video, a 2016 episode of podcast "The Drunken Peasants," Yiannopoulos discussed his own experience with sexual assault as a teenager. He argued in the clip that relationships between "younger boys and older men" could be beneficial.

He even equated what he does to the humor of standup comedians, as he characterized himself as an entertainer even though he had been a technology editor at Breitbart. He said that his role had "mutated" as he gained attention.

'Loved' Wearing Postal

Lance Armstrong

Former cyclist Lance Armstrong says he "loved" representing the U.S. Postal Service, even as the government sues to get back the millions it spent sponsoring his teams.

After years of legal wrangling, the federal government's $100 million lawsuit against Armstrong is expected to go to trial later this year. The Postal Service sponsored Armstrong's team when he was six of his seven Tour de France titles from 1999-2005.

Armstrong later admitted using performance-enhancing drugs and was stripped of those titles.

Speaking on his podcast Tuesday , Armstrong said it was an honor to wear the Postal Service jersey as he competed in Europe and to hear the national anthem played when he won.

Armstrong says the lawsuit can't "undo all of the good that was done all of those years." Armstrong claims the government made more money in publicity from the sponsorship than the $32 million it paid his teams.

Extraditing Ex-CIA Agent To Italy


A former CIA agent will be handed over to Italy in the coming days to serve a four-year prison sentence after being convicted of involvement in a U.S. program that kidnapped suspects for interrogation, a lawyer said Tuesday.

Sabrina de Sousa spent the night in a women's prison near Lisbon after a Portuguese court ordered police to extradite her, her Portuguese lawyer, Manuel Magalhaes e Silva, told the Associated Press in an interview.

He said she was detained Monday after a two-year fight against extradition and would be put on a plane once formalities between Portuguese and Italian police were concluded.

De Sousa, 61, was among 26 Americans convicted of kidnapping suspect Osama Moustafa Hassan Nas, also known as Abu Omar, from a Milan street on Feb. 17, 2003. She denied involvement in the abduction.

The U.S. rendition program, under which terror suspects were kidnapped and transferred to centers where they were interrogated and tortured, was part of the anti-terrorism strategy of the Bush administration following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Former President Barack Obama ended the program years later.

Moonlighting Legislator


A former Montana lawmaker, who in 2007 supported giving $4 million in state money to the Montana Meth Project, has denied federal charges that say he possessed and sold just over a pound of methamphetamine last year.

Former House Majority Leader Michael Lange of Billings pleaded not guilty Tuesday to federal drug distribution and possession charges, The Billings Gazette reported. He was booked into jail on Friday. U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy Cavan ordered Lange to remain in custody.

Attorney Ashley Harada reserved the right to request a bail hearing for Lange, 56.

Federal prosecutors say Lange distributed over 500 grams of meth, at least 1.1 pounds, between April and October 2016. Each count carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison. The case will be heard by U.S. District Judge Susan Watters.

Lange served as majority leader during the 2007 Legislature, but House Republicans stripped him of his title at the end of the session. He had been captured on video at a caucus in April swearing about then-Gov. Brian Schweitzer and negotiations with the Democrat over the budget.



World's Most Clogged City

Los Angeles

When it comes to getting stuck in traffic on the way to and from work, Los Angeles leads the world.

Drivers in the car-crazy California metropolis spent 104 hours each driving in congestion during peak travel periods last year. That topped second-place Moscow at 91 hours and third-place New York at 89, according to a traffic scorecard compiled by Inrix, a transportation analytics firm.

The U.S. had half the cities on Inrix's list of the top 10 most congested areas in the world and was the most congested developed country on the planet, Inrix found. U.S. drivers averaged 42 hours per year in traffic during peak times, the study found. San Francisco was the fourth-most congested city, while Bogota, Colombia, was fifth, Sao Paulo ranked sixth and London, Atlanta, Paris and Miami rounded out the top 10.

Being stuck in traffic cost the average U.S. driver $1,400 last year and nearly $300 billion for all drivers nationwide, Inrix said.

Inrix said it analyzed 1,064 cities worldwide across 38 countries to come up with its rankings. Since Inrix doesn't gather its own data in either China or Japan, cities in those countries were not ranked.
