M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - September 19th, 2012

Mashups For De-Evolution Purposes Only

By DJ Useo

...& now comes the moment I told you would arrive. The moment when I reveal what my new monthly mashup album is. It's ' ARE WE NOT MASHED?' (A Mashup Tribute To Devo) ( ) . For most of you, Devo are not an unknown commodity, with over 28 albums released, although for a few of you, Devo are that new band that does the song about Mitt Romneys' dog ( ) . I'm a huge Devo fan, so for me they're the group that were just here in Austin with Blondie.

Certainly,there's a lot of music available nowadays, but when I'm feeling low, no ones tunes pick me up faster than Devos. For a big Devo fan like me, there's never enough new Devo tunes, so it's no wonder I regularly dip into their catalog & work up something on my own that's 'new'. When I was asked to do a track for Envision's annual ' Smash The Genre' compilation ( ) awhile back, nothing struck me as being such strong opposites as Devo's 'Whip It' & Creedance Clearwater Revival's 'Bad Moon Rising'. When I was called upon to do a track for ' 2012 SUMMER BOOTY - The Summer Mashup Album' ( ) , the tunes that had that eternal Summer vibe together for me were Devo's 'Through Being Cool' and The Godfathers' ' She Gives Me Love'. It's only natural for me to ponder how Devo would sound paired with some other cool music.

Similar circumstances appeared during my years of making mashups until I had a swell batch of them using Devo. I applied a bit of effort over the last few months & came up with enough new Devo mashups so I can now release them all as a full disc collection. Among the new tracks are 'Roof Rack Hadron Collider' (Devo vs Mokushi), 'Peek-A-Bop' (Devo vs The Ramones), & 'Experienced Jeepster' (Devo vs T.Rex). I even included a trio of remixes represented by 'Snowball', 'Pity You', & 'Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA'. Devo might not be the most well-known band about, but whenever I make a mashup with them, a significant amount of their fans emerge to enjoy them.

I was speaking to a pal from the far north of Europe who'd never heard of Devo. Apparently, the only song they'd ever hit big with in his part of the world was 1990's ' Post Post-Modern Man' ( ) , a representative track from the group who brought us synthed-up rock & roll with a de-evolutiionized sound, yet one that he'd missed. I hope those of you who already love the Devo brand dig this collection, but I hope even more that many of you will discover an exciting band with a rich discography. I figure the more of us listening, the more music they'll give us.

So, whether you know Devo or not, on this mashup tribute record you'll find exciting Devo music paired up with other music you're sure to be familiar with. Regular Bartcop E contributor Podgornio, The Mashup Pyschic told me you'll all love it, each & every one.

Mix Of The Week

Mr Lovley has released '1990 909 Side B - Oscillations & Reflections' as his latest excellent long piece on the ever-popular mix site BMBX ( ). Mr Lovley says "Earlier this year I posted a bleepy mix of early 1990s electronica (1990 909) that went down well on bmbx, and so I was encouraged to do side B. Instead of just more of the same, I opted to do a Side B consisting of a selection of electronica and chillout tracks that I used to listen to at the same time, cut with a few samples from some of the artists involved. I was a bit hampered by my vinyl being in a loft a few thousand miles away, so there may be a sequel at a later date! This mix is dedicated to anyone who ever went to the legendary Oscillate club nights in Birmingham, where I was fortunate enough to hear many of these tracks for the first time in the perfect setting."

Mashup Tip

Don't take making mashups too seriously. It's only monging.

Latest Useo Thing

To make my regular contributions to the Beatles Remixers Group site ( ) I mixed up two new Beatles mashups. The first is ' Eight Peaches A Week' (The Beatles vs The Stranglers) ( ) ,

& the latter is 'Its All Too Much Machines' (The Beatles vs Mark Reeve & Dean Demanuele And Pig & Dan) ( ) . So you go from Classic Rock vs Punk to Classic Rock vs South Florida underground club. Stream or download today.

Podgornio, The Mashup Psychic Predicts

In October, DJ Local Girl will break the record for Beyonce mashups by developing a successful process to clone mashups.

Lawrence Douglas: President Donald Trump is the most powerful cornered animal in the world (The Guardian)
The point is to distract attention away from real allegations by creating a chaos of conflicting claims. And in this regard the strategy is all too effective. If there is something extraordinary about Trump it is how low he is willing to go.

Josh Marshall: This is Ridiculous (TPM)
The President says this happened. He says he has the evidence. He knows it happened. If he knows it happened, there's nothing to investigate. The President has plenary power to declassify and publicize anything he wants. Anything. He can do it by the book or he can do it basically by fiat with no one involved at all.

Donald Trump is President, so it's time for some absurdist comedy.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Author Zane Grey is associated with the Western genre in literature and the arts. What was his day job?

       Dentist                                                      Source

Pearl Zane Grey (January 31, 1872 - October 23, 1939) was an American dentist and author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories associated with the Western genre in literature and the arts; he idealized the American frontier. Riders of the Purple Sage (1912) was his best-selling book. In addition to the commercial success of his printed works, they had second lives and continuing influence when adapted as films and television productions. His novels and short stories have been adapted into 112 films, two television episodes, and a television series, Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater.        Source

TCM To Honor With 48-Hour Tribute

Robert Osborne

Turner Classic Movies will honor its late long-time host Robert Osborne with a 48-hour tribute celebrating his 23-year tenure with the network.

The network said Tuesday that the tribute will run all day Saturday March 18 and Sunday March 19. Osborne, the longtime face of TCM, died Monday at age 84.

The tribute will feature long-form interviews conducted by Osborne, an interview of Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin for the host's 20th anniversary and Osborne's very first movie intro, filmed for Turner Classic's first broadcast in 1994, for "Gone With the Wind."

Some of Osborne's interviews include sit-downs with Debbie Reynolds, Liza Minelli and Peter O'Toole.

Judge Rules Against Tribes

Dakota Pipeline

A U.S. judge on Tuesday ruled against Native American tribes seeking to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline as their legal options narrow weeks before oil is set to flow on the project.

Judge James Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia rejected the tribes' request for an injunction to withdraw permission issued by the Army Corps for the last link of the oil pipeline under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

The denial of the injunction represents yet another setback to the tribes - the Standing Rock Sioux and the Cheyenne River Sioux - that have been leading the charge against the line, which runs adjacent to tribal territory in southern North Dakota.

The tribes had argued that the pipeline would render water they use for religious ceremonies spiritually impure even if the pipeline goes under Lake Oahe. They said the pipeline was reminiscent of an ancient prophesy of a Black Snake that would harm natives and that they could not use other water supplies in the region because they had been polluted by decades of mining.

Boasberg said in a written ruling that the Cheyenne tribe "remained silent as to the Black Snake prophesy and its concerns about oil in the pipeline under Lake Oahe" during two years of legal disputes against the line.

Not A T-rump Fan

Don Cheadle

Actor Don Cheadle says President Donald Trump (R-Crooked) used the N-word in talking to a friend's father during a round of golf.

In a series of tweets Saturday, Cheadle, responding to a fan who said he hated Trump, revealed the incident occurred at a Doral pro-am a number of years ago, long before Trump was elected president.

Cheadle, 52, a long-time Trump critic, said his friend's father was in a foursome with Trump. He said he just learned details of the exchange recently, explaining that's why he didn't say anything during the election campaign.

Cheadle said he didn't know if his friend's father would go on the record with the story. Asked if there was any audio on the incident, Cheadle replied: "Her father wasn't wearing a wire. But look up the 2M or so articles about Drumpf and racism if you need a primer."

Tom Arnold claimed Trump used the n-word, as well as said "every offensive, racist thing ever" during his tenure as the host of "The Apprentice."

May Disrupt Four-Fifths Of World's Oceans By 2050

Global Warming

Global warming will disrupt four-fifths of the world's oceans by 2050 if greenhouse gas emissions keep rising, threatening fish that are the main source of food for a billion people, scientists said on Tuesday.

Curbs on man-made emissions, however, would give marine life more time to adapt to warming conditions or for marine life from algae to cod to shift to cooler waters nearer the poles, they said.

"By 2050 around four-fifths of the ocean surface will be affected by ocean acidification and ocean warming," lead author Stephanie Henson, of the British National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, told Reuters of the findings.

Carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, forms a weak acid in water. Currently, only about 10 percent of the oceans are under stress from the twin impacts of high temperatures and acidification, she said.

Cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, in line with goals set by almost 200 nations under a Paris Agreement on climate change in 2015, could limit the impact to two-thirds of the ocean by 2050, giving marine life more time to adapt, the scientists said.

Digby's Hullabaloo


Publishes CIA Trove


WikiLeaks on Tuesday published thousands of documents purportedly taken from the Central Intelligence Agency's Center for Cyber Intelligence, a dramatic release that appears to expose intimate details of America's cyberespionage toolkit.

It was not immediately clear how WikiLeaks obtained the information, which included more than 8,700 documents and files. The CIA tools, if authentic, could undermine the confidence that consumers have in the safety and security of their computers, mobile devices and even smart TVs.

WikiLeaks said the material came from "an isolated, high-security network situated inside the CIA's Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia." It didn't say how the files were removed, such as possibly by a rogue employee, by hacking a federal contractor working for the CIA or breaking into a staging server where such hacking tools might be temporarily stored.

The more than 8,000 documents cover a host of technical topics, including what appears to be a discussion about how to compromise smart televisions and turn them into improvised surveillance devices. WikiLeaks said the data also include details on the agency's efforts to subvert American software products and smartphones, including Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft Windows.

WikiLeaks said the archive "appears to have been circulated among former U.S. government hackers and contractors in an unauthorized manner, one of whom has provided WikiLeaks with portions of the archive."

Lieutenant Governor Calls For Sharia Law


The Texas lieutenant governor said on Monday he has enlisted Christian pastors statewide to help him win approval for legislation heading to a state Senate committee this week that limits access to public restrooms for transgender people.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and conservative Christian who guides the legislative agenda in the Republican-controlled Senate, told a news conference at the Capitol the Texas Privacy Act is a common-sense measure to keep sexual predators out of bathrooms.

Critics contend the bill infringes on the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Business groups say it will cause economic damage, pointing to a similar measure North Carolina enacted into law last year that led to travel and commercial boycotts.

Allowing transgender people to use public bathrooms corresponding to their gender identity rather than their birth gender has become the latest flashpoint in the long U.S. battle over LGBT rights.

Patrick announced the start of a "one million voices" campaign, with pastors enlisted to win support from their congregations for the legislation. Committee debate starts on Tuesday.



Killed By Poachers At French Zoo

White Rhino

Intruders at a French zoo have shot dead a white rhino and hacked off its horns in a grisly overnight poaching incident, police and the zoo said Tuesday.

The perpetrators forced the main gate to Thoiry zoo near Paris and broke through at least two other security barriers on Monday night, without disturbing five people who live on the grounds.

The animal, a four-year-old "critically endangered" southern white male named Vince, was attacked inside an area where at least two other rhinos are kept.

The rhino had been shot three times in the head.

Investigators estimate the horn is worth 30,000-40,000 euros ($31,700-$42,250).

Reveals Images Of Progress

Hyperloop One

'Hyperloop One revealed photos of its test tube, the DevLoop, located in the Nevada desert-- and it's huge.

A team of more than 240 employees have been working on the DevLoop, and it's nearly completed, a video released by Hyperloop One shows.

The tube, located 30 minutes away from Las Vegas, weighs more than one million kilograms, is 500 meters long and has a diameter of 3.3 meters.

The first public trial of the DevLoop is slated for the first half of this year.

The test tube is in preparation for the installation of the commercial tube that will connect Dubai and Abu Dhabi, about a 100 mile stretch, in just 12 minutes. Hyperloop One said the tube could create a "UAE pan-urban area," with a 30-minute Hyperloop trip connecting Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Al Ain.
