M Is FOR MASHUP - March 23rd, 2016

Whats Being Mixed?

By DJ Useo

When I sit down to hear a mashup, I want to hear whatever the DJ chose to work with, not what they think I want to hear. I don't look for tracks with artists I love. It doesn't have to have well known sources, or especially top 40 ones. It seems I'm in the vast minority in that respect. Most people are looking for mashups with their favorite artists. I still really like the new tracks I found today. Let's take a look & see what artists some of these fine new mashups use.

01 - Simon Iddol - "Need Fire Tonight" ( Phonat vs Latroit ft INXS )
( )

02 - DJ Nerd42 - "Castle Of Furious Glass Angels" ( Linking Park vs Rob Dougan )
( )

03 - Dunproofin & HJ - "Queen" ( Years & Years vs HJ vs Dunproofin )
( )

04 - SimGiant - "Wanna Bust Ghosts" ( Spice Girls vs Ray Parker, Jr )
( )

05 - ArthurTheBootleg - You Make Papi Dance ( Ari Ozawa vs Cobra Starship ft Sabi )
( )

06 - Happy Cat Disco - "Octahate Can Change The World" ( Big Sean vs Ryn Weaver )
( )

07 - DJ J-Brew - "Ju5t the Way A11-S7ar5 Ar3" ( Final Version ) ( Smashmouth vs Bruno Mars )
( )

08 - Enrico Persi - "Sun Goes Down" ( David Guetta vs Showtek vs Magic! & Sonny Wilson )
( )

I quite liked all of these, & I reckon you will too. The thing about mashup deejays is they have a honed sense of what makes a killer bootleg mix. It comes from years of music saturation, & from seeing first hand what people respond to. More musings on mashups next week.

Latest DJ Useo Thing - I played the CRUMPLSTOCK 2099 festival in 83 years. Here's the 2 live sets I did. The preview set is all others mashups, & the second one is all my own mixes. They are both other worldly. I hope you stream, or download. ( or share online )

Trivia Question from Yesterday

The Rolling Stones wrote and performed a short song for what breakfast cereal?

       Rice Krispies                                                      Source

Rice Krispies (known as Rice Bubbles in Australia and New Zealand) is a breakfast cerealmarketed by Kellogg's in 1927 and released to the public in 1928. Rice Krispies are made ofcrisped rice, which expands to form thin and hollowed out walls that are crunchy and crisp. When milk is added to the cereal the walls tend to collapse, creating the famous "Snap, crackle and pop" sounds.

Rice Krispies cereal is widely known and popular with a long advertising history, with the elfin cartoon characters Snap, Crackle, and Pop touting the brand. In 1963, The Rolling Stones recorded a short song for a Rice Krispies television advertisement.        Source

Rolling Stones - Rice Krispies Jingle - YouTube

Frosted Lois Of Oregon was first and correct with:
   Today we look at the 5 W's of Journalism!
  Who did that? The Rolling Stones
  What happened? They wrote and performed a shitty song about Rice Krispies.
  Where did it take place? In one of the lesser circles of Hell.
  When did it take place? 1963. But that is no excuse.
  Why did that happen? I'm guessing they needed money for drugs.
  And to be a show-off, some add...
  How did it happen? Again...drugs...had to be involved...somehow.

Hi Marty,

Good thing I caught your page today, I knew nothing about the Kindle update!

Well, deadline has been extended to 1 AM (CA time) Wednesday, and had I not read your pg, I would not have been able to connect to the Internet after 10 PM tonight!!

I live on my Kindle, and received free offers daily (for which I need to connect to the wifi)!

Amazon Kindle has the BEST customer service, and the agent walked me through it zip, zip!

Had I waited until tomorrow, I would have needed to find my charging ubs cord and had to hook it up to the computer (after calling them) and do a download.

Of course I first would have freaked out not knowing why my Kindle wasn't working...

Thx SO much for the reminder!!

BCE rocks again!!

Sally P

Thanks, Sally!
Always glad to be of service.

'Holy Grail' Record Sold


The demo vinyl record that persuaded late music producer George Martin to sign up The Beatles -- a "unique" piece of music history -- was sold on Tuesday to an unnamed British collector.

The record sold for £77,500 (98,000 euros, $110,000), a spokeswoman for the Omega Auctions, based in Warrington in northern England, told AFP.

The price tag was well above the £10,000 initial estimate, showing the object's "historical importance", the spokeswoman said, adding that bids had come in also from China and the United States.

The ten-inch 78 RPM acetate record featuring the single 'Hello Little Girl' on one side and 'Till There Was You' on the other was pressed at the historic HMV record store on Oxford Street in London.

It was pressed by the group's manager Brian Epstein to present to Martin at record label EMI -- a meeting that led to a breakthrough for the Beatles.

Court Rejects Challenge To Gun Control Laws


A federal appeals court on Tuesday ordered a lower court judge to dismiss a lawsuit challenging gun control laws approved by Colorado in the wake of a movie theater massacre in a Denver suburb, saying the plaintiffs lacked standing to bring the case.

The measures, which passed the Colorado legislature and were signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, in 2013 were considered a victory by gun-control activists in a state where gun ownership is treasured.

The laws, which banned ammunition magazines with more than 15 rounds and required universal background checks for gun buyers, prompted a fierce backlash from critics that led to voters recalling two key Democratic members of the state legislature.

The lawsuit, brought against Hickenlooper by county sheriffs, gun shops, outfitters and shooting ranges, claimed that the laws severely restricted Coloradans' rights to own and bear arms under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

After a nine-day trial, a federal judge found in favor of the governor, saying no evidence had been produced by the plaintiffs which showed that their rights to gun ownership would be infringed by the laws.

Flying Saucer Stolen

Roswell UFO Museum

Quick, call Dana Scully and Fox Mulder! We have a mystery worthy of an "X-Files" investigation underway in Roswell, New Mexico.

Roswell was the sight of an infamous alleged UFO crash back in 1947. The town still celebrates that legacy today with an annual UFO festival and the International UFO Museum & Research Center, a popular tourist destination.

The UFO Museum had a mock-up of a flying saucer embedded in an outside corner of the building. A snowstorm this past winter knocked it off, so the staff took it out back and stored it under an awning behind the museum. It is now mysteriously missing.

The Roswell Police Department sent out a plea on Facebook on Monday with the title "Be on the lookout: Missing spaceship." Thieves apparently made off with the craft overnight during the weekend. Surveillance footage showed three suspects with a red pickup truck carrying the saucer off, according to the police.

It should be hard to hide the UFO. It's made from fiberglass, metal and stainless steel and is wider than the truck bed it was spirited away in. It had been repaired after its winter storm adventure and was just waiting to be reinstalled on the corner of the building.

Healthier, Smarter

City Birds

A McGill doctoral candidate in biology, Jean-Nicolas Audet, is proud as a peacock that his idea to pit urban bird brains against country ones yielded such surprising results.

He and his fellow researchers, Simon Ducatez and Louis Lefebvre, tested more than 50 Barbados bullfinches captured from various parts of the Caribbean island - some from urban environments, others from wild areas mostly left untouched.

The urban birds proved to be smarter, bolder and healthier than those in rural areas.

The team of three researchers spent months at McGill's Bellairs Research Institute in Barbados testing the birds' problem-solving abilities and temperament.

They found that the city birds had adapted to become better at problem solving - such as opening drawers to find food.

Here Come Da Judge

Mrs. Palin

Sarah Palin (R-Quitter) is being eyed to host and star in her own daytime court TV series after signing a deal with Montana-based production company Warm Springs, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Big Ticket Entertainment's Larry Lyttle, whose credits include both Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown, is attached to the project as an executive producer. The project is still in the early stages. The former half-term governor of Alaska has not yet shot a pilot for the potential series or met with TV affiliates, and there is no studio currently attached. The hope is to launch a daytime syndicated series in fall of 2017.

Court shows have continued to be a strong performer in daytime despite the recent decline in celebrity-led talk shows. Big names like Katie Couric, Queen Latifah and Anderson Cooper, among many others, have failed to lure eyeballs to daytime, while shows like Judge Judy, Judge Joe Brown and Divorce Court continue to perform. Judge Judy is currently renewed through 2020 and star Judith Sheindlin ranks as one the highest-paid stars in daytime TV.

Palin does not hold a law degree, like her daytime legal counterparts. However, sources pointed to her impressive social media following as well as her several best-selling books as proof of her appeal to the daytime demographic.

Bigotry Under Cover Of Religion


Kansas' conservative Republican governor signed legislation Tuesday allowing faith-based groups at college campuses to restrict membership to like-minded people, likely putting the state on a collision course with civil liberties groups.

The GOP-dominated Legislature approved the legislation earlier this month, even though the U.S. Supreme Court ruled nearly six years ago that universities can require membership in such groups to be open to all. Supporters have said the bill was a victory for the freedom to exercise religious beliefs, but opponents called it a veiled attempt to legalize discrimination.

Kansas already has a religious objections law that prevents state or local governments from limiting people's freedom to express their religion, though that law doesn't touch on organizations at universities. With Gov. Sam Brownback's signature, Kansas becomes the second state after Oklahoma to have a college-specific law.

The new law, which will take effect July 1, will prevent public colleges and universities from denying religious groups funds or campus resources for limiting their memberships.

Critics argue that the bill is far broader than its supporters acknowledge and will in effect force minority students and their parents to support groups that would actively discriminate against them. They said the new law will sanction discrimination not only against gays and lesbians, but based on race, gender or disabilities.

Child Marriage


As coordinator of a shelter for pregnant teenagers in central Uganda, Ritah Ssetumba has seen thousands of young girls struggling to cope with having a child but even she was shocked when an 11-year-old girl arrived pregnant and married.

The girl, identified as Aidah, was referred to the Wamukisa Youth Centre by a village hospital in Buikwe District, 60 km (37 miles) from the capital Kampala, where she gave birth to a boy with her 16-year-old husband by her side.

Aidah is one of about 300,000 girls each year to get pregnant in Uganda which has one of the world's highest rates of pre-teen and teenage pregnancies as the east African nation struggles to enforce laws to clamp down on child marriages.

One in every four girls aged between 15 and 19 fall pregnant, according to the Uganda Bureau of Statistics, and nearly half of girls are married before 18.

According to Ssetumba the mother agreed to let the then 10-year-old Aidah marry the 16-year-old to settle a debt with his family.

Successful Businessman Sentenced to 10 Years


An 80-year-old man who ran a sprawling marijuana-dealing operation has been sentenced in Boston to 10 years in prison.

Marshall Dion pleaded guilty last year to drug and money-laundering charges. Prosecutors say Dion ran a large marijuana enterprise for decades.

When police in Junction City, Kansas, stopped him for speeding in 2013, they found about $828,000 in cash in his pickup. A federal investigation led authorities to Massachusetts and Arizona , where they found about $15 million in cash, nearly 400 pounds of marijuana and ledgers detailing drug deals going back to 1992.

A federal judge this month rejected a plea agreement that called for a five- to seven-year prison sentence for Dion.

The judge sentenced him Tuesday to 10 years in prison during a hearing in U.S. District Court.

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
