Far away in a far away land, there's a mashup video artist who is not near, but far away. If he moves nearer, that would be a new article, so I'll stick with him living far away. What were we talking about? Oh, yeah! The far away video artist. His name is Panos T & in addition to cutting, & looping mashup video content, he also is far away. Oh, I said that already. What I meant to say is that he assembles terrific mashup compilations. At www.themashupradio.com/albums/ you can find his 3 main series posted. There's 'MASHUP CULTURE' ( 3 volumes ), 'BOOTYLICIOUS' ( 2 volumes ), & the subject of todays' article, 'MASH OF THE TITANS'
( www.themashupradio.com/whatsnew/new-album-mash-of-the-titans-4-compiled-by-panos-t/ ).
'MASH OF THE TITANS 4' is a dream collection of the most far away, I mean, adored bootleggers. On the collection you'll find the latest creations from folk like DJs From Mars, Lobsterdust, Jarod Ripley, DJ Schmolli, & many more names entirely familiar to hundreds of thousands of online music listeners. This 4th volume adhere to the formula in great way. The tracks all contain the most well known modern source artists. In keeping with the display artwork, which refrains from mentioning who the mashers mixed with, I'll merely say, they're all made with the best top 40 finds.
Even if they're not far away, the tracks on this new Panos T collection will leave you satisfied, & not far away. This is the perfect mashup collection for all who enjoy the mainstream mashup above all others. You'll find that when you play it for friends, or family, or those who are far away, it'll be a welcome reaction you'll experience. I wager most people couldn't even recognize these as mashups. They all sound like they began this way. A well done deception, eh? Check out the full playlist, & obtain the not at all far away links here

Let's Talk About the Oscars: An Evening of Squirming (New York Times)
The story so far: In January, when the nominations for the 88th Academy Awards were announced and not a single nonwhite performer was recognized, a lot of people voiced their outrage about the omissions. The oversights weren't new for this predominantly white organization, but the intensity and volume of the criticisms were.
Sea-Monkeys is a brand name for brine shrimp-a group of crustaceans that under gocryptobiosis-sold in hatching kits as novelty aquarium pets. Developed in the United States in 1957 by Harold von Braunhut, the product was heavily marketed, especially incomic books, and remains a presence in popular culture. May 16 is National Sea-Monkey Day in the United States.

I was one of those parents who vowed to give my children everything I thought I wanted when I was a child, but was denied, because my parents KNEW it was useless crap and a total waste of money. Things like Chia Pets, The Mouse Trap Game, and...SEA MONKEYS! Turns out my parents were much smarter than I thought they were.
I gave MY children all these things, giddy with the expectation of seeing PURE RAYS OF JOY BEAM FROM THEIR LITTLE FACES! Instead, we got disappointment, frustration, and the crushing guilt which accompanies the eventual genocide of a race of captive BRINE SHRIMP.
Picture this: Christmas afternoon...the seed glop wouldn't stick to "Chia" George Washington's head no matter how many times we splooged it on! The MouseTrap Game was a logistical nightmare, and a crashing bore that EVERYONE HATED, and after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, was left out on the curb in front of the house! But the Sea Monkeys...oh, the Sea Monkeys. It would take weeks for that nightmare to fully unfold.
After setting up the adorable little aquarium with the magnifying "viewing bubbles", adding the saline solution, and waiting the prescribed amount of time, we added the stuff of life! Then we waited. I don't remember how long. Hours, days, perhaps weeks. But one day...THE MIRACLE OF LIFE! Really small hard to see life. But there it was! Isn't this GREAT KIDS!!!!????!!!!
No. It was NOTHING like advertized. They did not lounge on the beach in family units. They did not play organized sports. They could NOT be trained. What they COULD do was BREED. And breed they did. Generation after generation, in a small confined space. And they also DIED. And as the water of their tiny home, in which they were eternally trapped, became darker and more opaque with the decomposing corpses of their ancestors, the horror of what I had done became inescapable. I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HELL OF LIVING BEINGS FOREVER TRAPPED IN THE SLUDGE OF THEIR DEAD!
I did the only thing I could do. After a brief ceremony, they were sent back to the sea from which all life emerged, although, not by a very direct route. May god have mercy on our souls.

Now these I did have
I had the castle full of brine shrimp on my desk at work for several
years. They helped me debug code.
Going with a WAG - IIRC sea monkeys were actually sea horses. I remember reading ads for them as a kid.
Spring is in full bloom here. You wouldn't know we had winter at all; it's shorts and t-shirts weather. I love it but it feels wrong.

Sea-Monkeys are brine shrimp. Teeny-tiny little brine shrimp that may or may

After St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson encouraged Catholics to dissociate from the organization, The Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri broke records at their annual fundraising event, where donors munched on various sweet treats inspired by Girl Scout cookies.
The event brought in over $350,000, which tops every previous fundraiser the regional group has held, including the one that celebrated the organization's 100th anniversary.
Archbishop Carlson wrote a letter to Catholics in his archdiocese on Feb. 18, advising Catholic families to enroll their daughters in programs other than Girl Scouts and that priests dissolve connections between their parishes and Girl Scout troops.
In his letter, Carlson cited the organization's "position on an inclusion of transgender and homosexual issues" as "problematic." He also denounced Girl Scouts' connections to organizations that advocate for reproductive rights for women.
Students who placed anti-gay stickers on their identification badges at a Southern California high school have the right to wear the symbols, just as others can sport insignia supporting gay rights, administrators said.
Both symbols are allowed as a matter of free speech, as long as they do not cause a disruption at Shadow Hills High School in Indio, a city outside Palm Springs, administrators said in a statement emailed to staff last week.
The anti-gay stickers, which show a small rainbow inside a circle with a line through it, showed up about two weeks ago and raised concerns, The Desert Sun newspaper reported.
At the Southern California school, some students and staff object to the stickers because they feel the gay and lesbian community has been targeted, said Amy Oberman, an Advanced Placement U.S. History teacher.

A self-driving car being tested by Google struck a public bus on a Silicon Valley street, a fender-bender that appears to be the first time one of the tech company's vehicles caused a crash during testing.
Google accepted at least some responsibility for the collision, which occurred on Valentine's Day when one of the Lexus SUVs it has outfitted with sensors and cameras hit the side of the bus near the company's headquarters in Mountain View, California.
No one was injured, according to an accident report Google wrote and submitted to the California Department of Motor Vehicles. It was posted online Monday.
The car's test driver - who under state law must be in the front seat to grab the wheel when needed - thought the bus would yield and did not have control before the collision, Google said.
While the report does not address fault, Google said in a written statement, "We clearly bear some responsibility, because if our car hadn't moved there wouldn't have been a collision."
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump suffered a legal setback on Tuesday when a New York state court allowed a multimillion-dollar fraud claim against Trump University, filed by the state's attorney general, to proceed.
The claim is part of a lawsuit that accuses Trump and the now-defunct for-profit venture of misleading thousands of people, who paid up to $35,000 to learn the billionaire businessman's real estate investment strategies.
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's lawsuit, filed in 2013, seeks $40 million in restitution plus penalties and other costs, his office said.
The ruling by a four-judge panel of a mid-level appeals court in Manhattan brings the case closer to a potential trial. It could make it easier for the Trump venture ultimately to be held liable, because the claim does not require proof that there was intent to defraud.
The judges also extended the statute of limitations for the claim back to 2007 instead of 2010, as Trump's attorneys want. The program stopped taking students in 2010.

Two Catholic bishops who led a small Pennsylvania diocese helped cover up the sexual abuse of hundreds of children by more than 50 priests and other religious leaders over a 40-year period, according to a grand jury report that portrays the church as holding such sway over law enforcement that it helped select a police chief.
The 147-page report issued Tuesday on sexual abuse in the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese, home to nearly 100,000 Roman Catholics, was based partly on evidence from a secret diocesan archive opened through a search warrant over the summer.
No criminal charges are being filed in the case because some abusers have died, the statute of limitations has expired, or victims are too traumatized to testify, she said.
In a practice seen in other dioceses, the bishop created a "payout chart" to help guide how much victims would receive from the church, the report said. Victims fondled over their clothes were to be paid $10,000 to $25,000; fondled under their clothes or subjected to masturbation, $15,000 to $40,000; subjected to forced oral sex, $25,000 to $75,000; subjected to forced sodomy or intercourse, $50,000 to $175,000.
The No. 2 Republican in the Senate said on Monday he was worried that Donald Trump (R-Wichser) could be an "albatross" for Republicans running in other races if he were to win the party's nomination for president, CNN reported.
"We can't have a nominee be an albatross around the down-ballot races," John Cornyn (R-Pendejo), the Senate majority whip, said when asked if he had concerns about the possibility Trump could win the nomination, according to CNN. "That's a concern of mine."
"I think he certainly is a controversial figure," the Texas senator told CNN. "I think we need someone who can unify the party, as opposed to divide the party."

Philippine police said Tuesday that they were trying to determine the identity and cause of death of a man found dead while sitting slumped in a yacht that was drifting in the Pacific Ocean and which was apparently owned by a German adventurer.
Police Chief Inspector Dominador Plaza said the gray decomposing remains of the man resembled a mummy, adding mystery to his death. His body was discovered near the radio in the cabin of a white yacht found last week by Filipino fishermen off the southeastern province of Surigao del Sur.
Plaza said initial estimates show the man had been dead in the hot enclosed cabin for at least several days, but that authorities were awaiting an autopsy report due this week for a more accurate finding.
The 12-meter (40-foot) -long sailboat's mast was broken, maybe in a storm, police said.
Documents found in the yacht showed that it was apparently owned by a German adventurer identified as Manfred Fritz Bajorat, Plaza said, adding that investigators still have to determine whether he was the dead man.
