M Is FOR MASHUP - March 13th, 2019

Intense Psychedelia 13 Arrives with a Roar

By DJ Useo

Yup, it's actually another volume in this popular series. I had little intention to create another, but over the last several months, I've had inquiries as to when the next IP album would appear. You'd be surprised to know how much motivation those inquiries can instill in the creative mind. I sure appreciate all the folk who through the years who've responded so favorably to this style of bootleg mix.

I have a lot of psychedelic music that I've already remastered for my own personal enjoyment, & I love to use some for new mashups every so often. You'll find some very interesting psychedelic bands represented on this new collection, as has always been the case. You'll hear classic artists like Pink Floyd, The Music Emporium, Jimi Hendrix, & Iron Butterfly, plus modern similar artists like Bardo Pond, The Physics House Band, Sonic Youth & The Wild Swans.

The initial response last night to my live set of the album was overwhelmingly positive, which leads me to believe y'all will take to this collection like icing to cake. There's a brand spankin' new preview track so you can get an idea of your personal reaction. Here's "Stellar Time" ( Incubus vs Pink Floyd )
( )

The full album zip file is here
( )
& you can still obtain all 12 previous volumes down the page here
( )

Look for the 14th in this series about a year from now. Get your requests for featured artists in before then. I've already got a fine one done with the Grateful Dead over the Doors, just to give y'all an idea of what's comin'. I hope the free hosting links work for y'all. I'm always interested in your responses good, or bad. If you take to this album, please share the link.

Have the day of good. - DJ Konrad Useo

     • The Trump budget would cut about $845 billion from Medicare over 10 years
     • It cuts $241 billion from Medicaid
     • It would push Medicaid toward block grants which cap the amount each state would receive, which when the money runs out would result in pared-back benefits, recipients being tossed off the program or both
     • It would eliminate the Affordable Care Act's expansion of Medicaid, which would mean millions would lose their health coverage
     • It would cut $25 billion from Social Security [Etc.]

Trivia Question of the Day

This international hit single for Jeannie C. Riley made her the first woman to top both the Billboard Hot 100 and the U.S. Hot Country Singles charts with the same song, a feat that would go un-repeated until Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" in 1981. What is the title of this 1968 hit song?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Born Lij Tafari Makonnen Woldemikael, some believe he was the returned messiah. By what name is he more famously known?

       Haile Selassie                                                      Source

Haile Selassie I (born Lij Tafari Makonnen Woldemikael; 23 July 1892 - 27 August 1975) was an Ethiopian regent from 1916 to 1930 and emperor from 1930 to 1974. He is a defining figure in contemporary Ethiopian history.

Among the Rastafari movement, whose followers are estimated to number between 700,000 and one million, Haile Selassie is revered as the returned messiah of the Bible, God incarnate. Beginning in Jamaica in the 1930s, the Rastafari movement perceives Haile Selassie as a messianic figure who will lead a future golden age of eternal peace, righteousness, and prosperity. Haile Selassie was an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian throughout his life.

As Governor of Harar, he became known as Ras Tafari Makonnen. Ras is translated as "head" and is a rank of nobility equivalent to Duke; though it is often rendered in translation as "prince". In 1916, Empress Zewditu I appointed him to the position of Balemulu Silt'an Enderase (Regent Plenipotentiary). In 1928, she granted him the throne of Shewa, elevating his title to Negus or "King".

On 2 November 1930, after the death of Empress Zewditu, Tafari was crowned Negusa Nagast, literally King of Kings, rendered in English as "Emperor". Upon his ascension, he took as his regnal name Haile Selassie I. Haile means in Ge'ez "Power of" and Selassie means trinity-therefore Haile Selassie roughly translates to "Power of the Trinity". Haile Selassie's full title in office was "By the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, King of Kings of Ethiopia, Elect of God". This title reflects Ethiopian dynastic traditions, which hold that all monarchs must trace their lineage to Menelik I, who was the offspring of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.        Source

Randall was first, and correct, with:
   Haile Sellasie

Mark. said:
   Haile Selassie.

Alan J answered:
   Haile Selassie.

Dave wrote:
   I'm guessing Halie Selassie, and Wikipedia says I'm right this time. In the 1930s an Abrahamic religion called Rastafari grew out of a prophecy of Marcus Garvey about a "black king" crowned in Africa that means "the day of deliverance was here." Halie Selassie was coronated as Emperor of Ethiopia in 1930 and seemed to fit the bill. Believers (not including Garvey who thought it was nonsense) also linked Selassie to a Biblical prophecy and the idea of an African messiah was irresistible to some black Jamaicans, so Selassie became their redeemer. The most famous Rastafarian was the singer Bob Marley. Rastafari seems absurd, but is it more absurd than Mormonism?

Kevin K., in Washington, DC, replied:
   Haile Selassie. Smoke enough ganja, and he becomes the Lion of Judah.

mj responded:
   The Lion of Judah
  Halie Sellasie.

Cal in Vermont wrote:

zorch said:
   Haile Selassi I, Emperor of Ethiopia

Adam answered:
   Haile Selassie, who held himself up to be better than Lightly Selassie and Mostly Selassie.

Marilyn of TC replied:
   Haile Selassie is the name for Woldemikael.

Jim from CA, retired to ID responded:
   Haile Selassie

Roy, still Blue, still in Dark Red Tyler, TX wrote:
   Lij Tafari Makonnen Woldemikael was the birth name of Haile Selassi, emperor of Ethiopia from 1930 to 1974.

Billy in Cypress U$A said:
   The name "Haile Selassie" came to mind when I read the question and GOOGLE said that was correct.

Mac Mac answered:
   Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia

Ed K replied:
   I've been playing in Reggae bands for the last 35 years, so I'd better know that one: Haile Selassie.

Deborah responded:
   I didn't recognize the name so looked it up: that's Haile Selassie. I would never have guessed.

• The clientele at Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's Jewish retreat and outreach center, which he named the House of Love and Prayer - was somewhat odd (it was located in Haight-Ashbury, after all), and soon complaints poured in to the landlord, who gave an eviction notice to Rabbi Shlomo. A nun from a nearby convent, which was filled with religious who adored the good Rabbi, saw Rabbi Shlomo looking sad, and asked him what was the matter. He explained the situation, and the nun grew angry, saying about the landlord, who was a member of her church, "He's got some nerve! I'm going over to give him a piece of my mind right now!" The nun talked to the landlord, and he quickly changed his mind about evicting Rabbi Shlomo. Later, Rabbi Shlomo asked her what she had told the landlord to make him change his mind about the eviction. The nun replied, "It was very simple, really. I told the landlord that if he ever brings grief to Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, he's going to burn in hell."

• Opera great Leo Slezak once was concerned about the flooding that occurred in a small Austrian town where he and his family were staying. As the water lapped at the house he was renting, he promised God that if the water should recede, he would give a charity concert to help the inhabitants of the town. Almost immediately, the water began to recede. The charity concert was a huge success, but Mr. Slezak's landlady was so impressed that such a benevolent celebrity as Mr. Slezak was staying in her house that she raised the rent.

• In the 1920s and 1930s, Albert Strunsky was a dream landlord in Greenwich Village for musicians and artists because he was very forgiving when a tenant was late with the rent. Sometimes he would make the tenant move, but it was always into another of Mr. Strunsky's studio apartments. Eventually, Mr. Strunsky was owed so much money that his daughter sent out bills in an attempt to collect. This made Mr. Strunsky angry, and he made his daughter apologize to his tenants.

• African-American comedian Angela Scott talks about an apartment becoming vacant in her building. She wanted to have a friend move into it, but the landlord wouldn't allow that. Therefore, whenever the landlord showed the apartment to white people, she wore curlers in her hair, put on slippers and a housecoat, went out on her landing, and loudly said, "Leroy, don't start no sh*t. You put that knife down. Come out here, kids, all twenty of you."

• Early in his baseball career, pitcher Lefty Gomez spent time in the minor leagues, where he didn't make much money and fell behind in his rent. Because he was lacking funds to pay his back rent, he told his landlady, "Just think, someday you'll be able to say Lefty Gomez the great pitcher once lived here." His landlady replied, "If you don't pay me, I'll be able to say it tomorrow."

• Oscar Levant was kind of a perpetual houseguest at the house of Ira Gershwin and his wife, Leonore. Once, he said something that annoyed Leonore, so she told him, "Get out of this house." Mr. Levant stood up a moment, then sat down again and said, "I'm not going." "Why not?" she asked. "Because I have no place to go." This caused Leonore to laugh, and Mr. Levant stayed as a houseguest for two more years.

• One of Jeremy Nichols' friends had a rather nasty experience with the interior decor of a room that was rented to itinerant actors in England. He saw a fur-covered lampshade in his room. Thinking that his landlady had horrible taste, and wondering whether the fur was real, he touched it - only to discover that what looked like fur was a coating of dust, one-half inch thick.

• Maxim Gorky once stayed at a hotel in Southern Italy. The next morning, he complained that he had not been able to sleep at night because his bed was infested. His landlady denied the charge, saying, "We have not a single bug in this house." Mr. Gorky replied, "That is true. The bugs are not single - they are married and have very large families, too."

• A man called a biological supply store and asked for immediate delivery of 10,000 cockroaches. The store was able to fill the order, but the salesperson asked the man why he needed so many cockroaches. The man replied, "I am moving out of my apartment, and my lease says that I have to leave it exactly as it was when I moved in."

• Groucho Marx's small son once ran away from home. Groucho, of course, went after his son and brought him back home - but told him to give some advance warning the next time he ran away from home, so Groucho could rent his room out.

• When John Adams was old, Daniel Webster visited him and asked how he was. Mr. Adams replied, "The top is all off the house, the windows are getting dim, the foundation is very shaky, and as far as I can see, the landlord does not aim to make any more improvements."

• Pablo Picasso often painted over the white walls of the apartments where he lived, turning them into works of art. Early in Picasso's career, an angry landlord forced him to pay to have a wall painted again. Years later, Picasso said, "What a fool. He could have sold the wall for a fortune."

• Some of the parties held by Divine, an actress who appeared in many of John Waters' films, were remarkable. At one party, she auctioned off all of her landlady's furniture in the furnished apartment.

The Sideshow - by Avedon Carol


Series Finale

'The Big Bang Theory'

The end is nigh for The Big Bang Theory, and now we know exactly when. CBS said today that the sitcom will wrap its 12-season run with an hourlong series finale at 8 PM Thursday, May 16. Check below for the rest of CBS' 2018-19 season finales.

Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Mayim Bialik, Melissa Rauch, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar star in Chuck Lorre's The Big Bang Theory, which remains one of the most popular shows on television. Counting the finale, only seven new episodes remain.

A special Big Bang farewell panel is planned for WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center on March 30, the final day of the Orange County pop-culture expo. WonderCon is put on by the organizers who also stage Comic-Con International in San Diego every July, where fans have camped out to see the cast and creative team in Hall H panels.

The show is retiring in the wake of Parsons' choice to opt out of any Season 13 plans. Season 11 averaged 18.9 million viewers and was the second-most watched series of last season (behind Roseanne) and among adults 18-49, Big Bang also was the second highest-rated entertainment program (behind NBC's This Is Us).

New 50p Coin

Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking has been commemorated on a new 50p coin inspired by his pioneering work on black holes.

The coin, which features a spiralling black hole, is available to buy from the Royal Mint's website - with prices ranging from £10 for a brilliant uncirculated version of the coin to £795 for a gold proof coin.

The design of the coin is influenced by Prof Hawking's pioneering work on black holes and his ability to make science accessible and engaging.

Prof Hawking is also among a large number of scientists whose names have been suggested for a new £50 banknote.

The Bank of England has previously asked for nominations for the face of the new banknote, which will be someone from the world of science.

Accuses Big Four Talent Agencies

Writers Guild

The Writers Guild of America has issued a blistering report accusing the top four Hollywood talent agencies of extensive and illegal conflicts of interest.

"While the major agencies have pursued growth through conflicts of interest, these practices contravene how agents are required to act under state and federal law," the report said. "By maximizing their own profits and now the profits of outside investors, these agencies have strayed from their core purpose of representing the interests of their clients."

"The fundamental duty of a talent agency is to represent the interests of its clients. This report reveals how far the dominant agencies have strayed from this mission," the report said. "The talent agencies will soon have to choose between their conflicted practices and representing talent for the proper ten percent commission."

WME is part of same holding company that owns producer Endeavor Content, while CAA supports production entity Wiip. UTA partnered with MRC last year to launch producer Civic Center Media.

The report contains a cloaked threat of the WGA filing a lawsuit against the agencies by invoking the 1962 antitrust suit by the U.S. Justice Department, which forced MCA to get out of the agency business after a decade of acting as both a producer and an agency.

"Testicular Bill of Rights"


A representative in the Georgia Statehouse is drafting a rather blunt response to legislation that would dictate when a woman could get an abortion. It's called the "Testicular Bill of Rights," and state Rep. Dar'shun Kendrick said her legislative package is all about turning the tables on her male counterparts seeking to impose laws on a woman's reproductive rights.

The move comes after a Georgia House committee approved legislation last week to outlaw abortion after a fetus' heartbeat can be detected, which is before many women know they are pregnant. Women in Georgia can currently seek an abortion within the first 20 weeks of a pregnancy. A heartbeat is generally detectable by medical professionals at around six weeks.

"HB-481 [The 'Heartbeat Bill'] inspired me to see what the reaction would be from some males and male legislators if the tables were turned and we started to talk about their reproductive rights and organs," Kendrick told CBS News on Tuesday.

Kendrick announced her "bill of rights" package on Twitter Monday. It includes, among many male-focused proposals, legislation requiring men to obtain permission from their sex partner before they get a prescription for any erectile dysfunction medication, allowing men who have sex without a condom to be charged with aggravated assault, and imposing a 24-hour "waiting period" for men who want to purchase any pornography or sex toys in the state of Georgia.

False Claim Repeated

Climate Change

Donald Trump (R-Dolt) has repeated the false claim that climate change is not real and that the science demonstrating the crisis is "fake".

The president appeared to be tweeting a statement he heard from Fox News on Tuesday morning, writing, "Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace: "The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it's Fake Science. There is no climate crisis, there's weather and climate all around the world, and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life."

He then tagged the conservative network's morning show, Fox and Friends, adding, "Wow!"

However, Mr Trump's tweet is misleading in more ways than one.

While Greenpeace noted Mr Moore "played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years," the organisation said "he did not found Greenpeace."

Double Earlier Estimates

Air Pollution

Air pollution causes 790,000 premature deaths every year in Europe and 8.8 million worldwide, doubling recent assessments, according to a study released Monday.

Between 40 and 80 percent of those excess deaths are caused by heart attacks, strokes and other types of cardiovascular disease underestimated up to now as a driver of smog-related mortality, researchers reported.

On average, a toxic cocktail of pollutants from vehicles, industry and agriculture shortens the lives of those who die prematurely by 2.2 years, they calculated.

"This means that air pollution causes more extra deaths a year than tobacco smoking, which the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates was responsible for an extra 7.2 million deaths in 2015," said senior author Thomas Munzel, a professor at the University Medical Centre Mainz in Germany.

"Smoking is avoidable, but air pollution is not."

Dangerous Allergic Reaction


A woman in Spain developed a serious allergic reaction after a sexual encounter, which may have been triggered by her partner's semen, according to a new report of the woman's case.

The 31-year-old woman broke out in hives and experienced vomiting and difficulty breathing after engaging in oral sex with her 32-year-old male partner, the report said. The woman was diagnosed with anaphylaxis - a severe, whole-body allergic reaction that can be life-threatening.

The woman wasn't taking any medications and hadn't eaten any unusual foods that might have triggered the reaction. But her partner was taking a course of the antibiotic amoxicillin for an ear infection. Amoxicillin is related to penicillin, and the woman told doctors that she had a penicillin allergy.

The case report authors say it's likely that the woman's allergic reaction was triggered by amoxicillin that had concentrated in her partner's semen, which she was exposed to during oral sex.

Allergies to semen are rare, but have been reported before. In some cases, people are allergic to proteins in men's semen, but in other cases, they appear to be allergic to drugs a man is taking that have found their way into the man's seminal fluid. There are few studies on how much drugs accumulate in men's semen, but in theory, amoxicillin could become quite concentrated in semen, according to the authors, from the General University Hospital of Alicante in Spain.




Isn't Objective


A new quantum physics experiment just lent evidence to a mind-boggling idea that was previously limited to the realm of theory, according to the MIT Technology Review - that under the right conditions, two people can observe the same event, see two different things happen, and both be correct.

According to research shared to the preprint server arXiv on Tuesday, physicists from Heriot-Watt University demonstrated for the first time how two people can experience different realities by recreating a classic quantum physics thought experiment.

The experiment involves two people observing a single photon, the smallest quantifiable unit of light that can act as either a particle or a wave under different conditions.

The photon can exist in one of two alignments, but until the moment someone actually measures it to determine which, the photon is said to exist in a superposition - both conditions are true at the same time.

Bringing this idea from thought experiment to reality involved an experimental setup with lasers, beam splitters, and a series of six photons that were measured by various pieces of equipment that stood in for the two scientists.
