It's amazing to me that no matter how many times it happens, having people allow you to post their fine work is a huge honor for me. The results always leave us all pleased, & soon longing to repeat the experience. That's how all
these collections got here
( djuseomashupalbums.blogspot.com/ ) Personally, I find the direction of a themed compilation very stimulating, & it's clear I'm not the only one. Back in 2012, ( The Year of the Mashup Album ) I actually posted one album a month, & also many more themed comps with others.
As so often occurs, the tracks I had ready for the album seemed great until the first actual accepted tracks arrive. Then,I felt compelled to mix even better ones. In the end I left the selection of my own tracks to Chocomang, as he did his tracks to me. At this point, theres THREE HOURS of incredible club bootleg mixes from many a skilled bootlegger! I'm saving the names of the mixers, & the source artists till next week when the complete collection is posted, but I will share the instructions I requested.
I politely stated that what we wanted was "120 - 130 bpm mashups with a good lead-in,& a nice lead-out ; deffo no fade-ins, or outs. Other than those minor restrictions, feel free to make tracks any way you think will inspire dancing." Soon, at a pro mixers' request, we changed the BPM ( beats per minute ) range to 114-140. I hope y'all can sustain the dance energy. ;) We also expanded the deadline an extra month, because people took the winter holidays off.
Let me tell you, though, even with 3 hours of tunes, I was able to accept all entries. The people frequenting AudioBoots have vast ability, no doubt. I had the best time receiving all those tracks. On top of that I got to do the final production, which I always love to do.
Ok, that's this week's tease of a column. The album only needs the final artwork to go, & it'll be available. I'll give y'all the full scoop next week, so remember to come back to BARTCOP E ! Check for it at audioboots.com
( www.audioboots.com ) during the next week if you want it before most others. TTYL.
C. Coville: 5 Creepy Ways We're Making Money Off Dead Celebrities (Cracked)
Most of us don't have to worry much about what will happen to our stuff after we die. Sure, we might be concerned that whoever inherits our amigurumi Cthulhu collection might not appreciate it as much as we did, or fret about somebody digging into our browser history and discovering our carefully indexed reviews of dozens of different hemorrhoid creams.
Ikebana ("living flowers") is the Japanese art of flower arrangement, also known as kado (the "way of flowers").
"Ikebana" is from the Japanese ikeru ("keep alive, arrange flowers, living") and hana "flower"). Possible translations include "giving life to flowers" and "arranging flowers".

John I from Hawai'i says,
Some would say flower arranging
But it actually involve arranging the spaces between objects (including
flowers, branches, rocks, etc.)
Jim from CA, retired to ID, replied:
Japanese art of flower arrangement
Oooh, I love it when I know the answer: Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging.
I can grow anything, arranging flowers isn't my forté. I keep trying, hoping for an artistic breakthrough. Someday.
If my time in Okinawa provides me with any advantage, "hana" means
flower. Bana is the conjugated form so Ikebana is probably "Flower
Pollinated Lois Of Oregon replied:
Oh flower arranging, the gentle and ancient art of
harvesting nature's most beautiful treasures before they can
fulfill their purpose of procreation, and enslaving them for
our own amusement in a futile effort to mask the stench of
our filthy souls as we stumble through this brief life,
wasting and destroying all we encounter on our pointless
drive for acquisition, consumption and total domination of
everything in the cosmos. Ahhhh, spring.
DJ Useo responded:
It's flower arrangement, innit? I can't have nice flowers like that because I have house cats.
Once I even tried having an indoors cactus garden, but my big male cat Tuffy tore them up, & ate them. Lol.
Flower arrangement ~ Over the 7 centuries of its evoloution, ikebana has developed many diffent styles of arrangements. Among the most common are the rikka (standing flowers ), seika or shoka (living flowers) and nageire (flung flowers) styles when making arrangments in bowl-shped vases and the moribana (piled-up flowers) style when using dish-like containers.
Joe S answered:
Flower arrangement, that's nice. I knew the Andrews Sisters too, but I misplaced a document I needed to do my taxes. I looked for it until 3:00 AM then said the hell with it and went to bed. Found it easily in the morning. Anyway I didn't do the quiz, but I do want to say, my favorite sister group is the Pointer Sisters.

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.

figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just

Edward Snowden, the fugitive whistleblower who has been given refuge in Russia, is willing to return to the United States if he is given a fair trial, his lawyer said Tuesday.
"He is thinking about it. He has a desire to return and we are doing everything we can to make it happen," Anatoly Kucherena, the Russian lawyer who represents the former National Security Agency contractor, told a news conference.
"With a group of lawyers from other countries, we are working on the question of his return to America," Kucherena said.
"Snowden is ready to return to the States, but on the condition that he is given a guarantee of a legal and impartial trial," he said.
The lawyer said Snowden had so far only received a guarantee from the US Attorney General that he will not face the death penalty.
California received a double dose of bad drought news on Tuesday, with state officials saying the snowpack in the Sierra Nevada is far below normal and that residents again aren't coming close to meeting Gov. Jerry Brown's call for a 20 percent cut in water use.
Snow supplies about a third of the state's water and a higher winter snowpack translates to more water in California reservoirs to meet demand in summer and fall. Last weekend's Sierra snowfall pleased skiers and snowboarders but wasn't nearly enough to offset weeks of dry weather.
The latest survey makes it likely California's drought will run through a fourth year. Brown declared a drought emergency on Jan. 17, 2014, and his office continues to underline the need for sustained water conservation.
Frank Gehrke, chief of the California Cooperative Snow Surveys Program, said there were 6.7 inches of snow on the ground at the survey spot near Echo Summit, about 90 miles east of Sacramento.
The survey found a snowpack water equivalent of just 0.9 inches. During the last snow survey on Jan. 29 there was a water equivalent of 2.3 inches in the same spot.
A pensioner has started digging in Germany's western Ruhr region for the Amber Room, a priceless work of art looted by Nazis from the Soviet Union during World War Two and missing for 70 years, but says he needs a new drill to help him.
Dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World, the Amber Room was an ornate chamber made of amber panels given to Czar Peter the Great by Prussia's Friedrich Wilhelm I in 1716.
German troops stole the treasure chamber from a palace near St Petersburg in 1941 and took it to Koenigsberg, now the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, before it disappeared.
Now 68-year-old pensioner Karl-Heinz Kleine says he thinks the chamber is hidden under the town of Wuppertal, deep in western Germany's industrial Ruhr area.
After analyzing the evidence, Kleine has concluded that Erich Koch, who was the Nazis' chief administrator in East Prussia, may have secretly dispatched it to his home town.
As the Blurred Lines trial resumed, jurors got an inside peek at the financial success of the song credited to Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I..
Both sides agree with an accounting statement that attributes $16,675,690 in profits for "Blurred Lines," which was the biggest hit of 2013. According to testimony, $5,658,214 went to Thicke, $5,153,457 was given to Williams, and $704,774 came to T.I. The record companies took home the rest.
Few things are more closely-guarded in the song business than financial profitability, and these type of details usually only leak out in accounting disputes that make it to trial. Here, the numbers are revealed as part of a copyright case because the family of Marvin Gaye believes they are entitled to a big chunk of money from "Blurred Lines" because they allege it's a copyright infringement of "Got to Give It Up."
But Gaye's family isn't stopping at demanding money from sales of the song. The singer's children Frankie and Nona Gaye are also targeting touring money too, which according to testimony, was about $11 million attributable to the success of "Blurred Lines." Much of this information comes from Creative Artists Agency, which was served with a subpoena over Thicke's income. To be awarded money on the touring front, the Gayes will likely have to establish a causal nexus between the infringement and the touring revenues.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus has agreed to plead guilty to mishandling classified information, with the retired four-star general admitting to giving eight "black books" full of such data to a military mistress who was writing his biography.
Petraeus, 62, will plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material under the deal, according to documents filed on Tuesday in federal court in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The plea agreement announced by the Justice Department marks the latest chapter in an astonishing fall from grace for Petraeus, an intellectual with a Princeton University doctorate and a counter-insurgency expert widely considered one of America's most important military leaders of recent decades.
He served stints as the top U.S. commander in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and then as CIA director and was lauded by senior U.S. lawmakers. But his career came crashing down thanks to an extramarital affair with his biographer, former Army Reserve officer Paula Broadwell.
Petraeus faces a maximum sentence of one year in prison. But under the deal prosecutors and his lawyers are recommending a $40,000 fine and two years of probation.

Sun Myung Moon, arms dealer/messiah and founder of the church.

The brother of celebrity socialite Paris Hilton will plead guilty to an assault charge for threatening flight attendants on a Los Angeles-bound flight out of London last year, officials said on Tuesday.
Conrad Hughes Hilton admitted to the misdemeanor crime that occurred on a British Airways flight on July 31, 2014, according to documents provided by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles.
During the flight, Hilton repeatedly used the bathroom to smoke marijuana and tobacco and intimidated the unnamed flight attendants, according to the plea agreement.
"You need to stop squaring up to me," he screamed at one, according to the document. "I am going to fucking kill you."
"I will fucking own anyone on this flight; they are fucking peasants," Hilton said, according to the complaint.
The Villarica volcano erupts near Pucon, Chile, early Tuesday, March 3, 2015. The Villarica volcano erupted Tuesday around 3 a.m. local time (0600 GMT), according to the National Emergency Office, which issued a red alert and ordered evacuations.
