M Is FOR MASHUP - April 1st, 2015

The 13 Labors of Rillen Rudi

By DJ Useo

I don't remember what the first mashup I heard from rillen rudi was, but I do remember it was his first release. I also recall that I thought it was an excellent mix. Now, I know others don't often do this, but I noted his name, & always listened to his mixes. I sure felt a strong benefit over the ensuing years.

Now, in 2015, rillen rudi has long since become a well known & adored figure in the bootleg scene. He's released so many "keepers" that he's now up to his thirteenth mashup collection, "The Rillen Rudi Collection 13". I can't imagine a much more satisfactory experience than to savor all 13 volumes, so allow me now to link you up to them in reverse order, & briefly mention some example tracks from each ten track album.

01 - The Rillen Rudi Collection 13 ( )

    01-black teeth ( the death set vs ac/dc )

    02-the real nothing ( b.o.b. vs eminem )

    03-midnight crisis ( m83 vs faith no more )

02 - The Rillen Rudi Collection 12 ( )

    01- lost in a beautiful day (lady gaga vs linkin park )

    112 - the everlong trooper ( iron maiden vs foo fighters )

    113 - up all night inside the fire ( alex clare vs disturbed )

03 - The Rillen Rudi Collection 11 ( )

    01-smells like furtado ( nirvana vs nelly furtado )

    02-high up ( mop vs method man & redman )

    03-u dont wanna be invisible so dont let this drag u down ( the pierces vs nu tone feat. natalie williams )

04 - The Rillen Rudi Collection 10 ( )

    01- the last bro hymn ( bassnectar - vs papa roach )

    02-this time i dont look any further ( dj shadow vs dennis edwards and seidah garret )

    03-celebrate ET ( westbam vs katy perry )

05 - The Rillen Rudi Collection 9 ( )

    01-i still feel good ( sway vs gorillaz )

    02-sweet fighters ( gabriella cilmi vs foo fighters )

    03 let me be your omen ( the prodigy vs noisa vs baby d )

~~~~~~``= _+= *********** %-_-$$__-@!!~~~~~``-__-


~~~~~~``= _+= *********** %-_-$$__-@!!~~~~~``-__-

01 - The Rillen Rudi Collection 1 ( )

    01-patricia demmi ( max greger orchestra vs deichkind )

    02-eva is intergalactic ( jean-jacques perrey vs fatboy slim vs beastie boys )

    03-everlong green eyes ( coldplay vs foo fighters )

So, as you can see for yourself, rillen rudi has so very much to offer the fan of mashups. Along the way, through these collections, & posts, you'll find many video versions that are wonderful visual variations on the blended audio releases. Here's one of his best - "Mama Said Knock The Jogi Out" ( Panjabi MC vs LL Cool J ) from video crafter BobbyG. on Vimeo .If we're truly blessed, rillen rudi will eventually reach 100 volumes! We can only hope!

Trivia Question from Yesterday

The only person to both appear in and direct episodes of Twilight Zone, she is also the only woman to have directed an episode of the series. What is her name?

      Ida Lupino                                                      Source

Ida Lupino was the only person to both appear in and direct episodes of Twilight Zone (1959): Twilight Zone: The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine (1959) and Twilight Zone: The Masks (1964). She was also the only woman to have directed an episode of the series.

She was an ardent Democrat who strongly supported the presidency of John F. Kennedy. During the 1940s when she was under contract with Warner Brothers, she was close friends with future president Ronald Reagan (whom at that point was a registered Democrat) and later was a guest at his wedding to Nancy Reagan and babysat the couple's children. Upon Reagan's 1962 switch from Democrat to Republican, Lupino was so livid by his decision that she ended her friendship with the Reagans via a handwritten letter informing them that she believed it was both inexcusable and unacceptable that Reagan would abandon the Democrats in an election year. She never spoke to the Reagan family again for the rest of her life.        Source

   Ida Lupino.

CONAN: Indiana's Religious Freedom Czar Defends Its Anti-Gay Law



from Marc Perkel


Hello Bartcop fans,

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. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

'Second-Hand Smog'


California is suffering from "second-hand smog" drifting in from Asia and other places, researchers said on Tuesday, even as the state's prolonged drought has made air quality worse.

About 10 percent of ozone pollution, the main ingredient in smog, in the state's San Joaquin Valley farm region comes from other countries, mostly in Asia, said Ian Faloona, an atmospheric scientist with the University of California, Davis.

"What's happening upwind strongly affects what's happening downwind," Faloona said. If California were a human body, the area around the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco would be the mouth, "breathing in air from across the Pacific Ocean," he said.

Faloona's conclusions, which are still preliminary, come during an increase in air pollution in the most populous U.S. state, as drought and warmer temperatures have triggered a spike in the number of winter days thick with soot and dirt.

Rough Crowd

Dave Chappelle

A man tossed a banana peel at Dave Chappelle during a standup show, hitting in the comedian in the leg, police in this northern New Mexico city say.

Christian Englander, 30, of Santa Fe, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor disorderly conduct and battery after the fruit throw Monday night, Santa Fe police Lt. Andrea Dobyns said.

Englander acknowledged throwing a peel from a banana he had eaten earlier because he took offense to jokes Chappelle made about his companion, Dobyns said.

The friend reportedly was drawing in a sketchbook during the show when Chappelle noticed and asked the man his name, which he gave as "Johnny Appleseed," Dobyns said.

Chappelle then made jokes about the moniker, the police spokeswoman said, "so that's when Englander got upset."

Hospital News

Joni Mitchell

Groundbreaking singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, one of the stars of the Woodstock era, has been hospitalized, her official website said on Tuesday.

"Joni has been hospitalized. We are awaiting official word on her condition and will post it here as soon as we know," a statement on the website said.

Celebrity news website reported earlier that Mitchell, 71, was taken to hospital after authorities received a 911 call from her Los Angeles home about an unconscious woman. TMZ said Mitchell was alert on the way to the hospital.

The Canadian-born Mitchell was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and is best known for her highly influential albums in the late '60s and '70s, including "Clouds," "Ladies of the Canyon" and "Blue."

New Study

Anne Frank

Jewish teenager Anne Frank died in a Nazi concentration camp at least a month earlier than her official date of death, a new study said on Tuesday.

"New research... has shed fresh light on the last days of Anne Frank and her sister Margot," the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam said on Tuesday, until now her official death date.

"Their deaths must have occurred in February 1945," the foundation said in a statement.

The deaths of Anne Frank and her younger sister Margot in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in northern Germany were noted as between 1-31 March by the Red Cross at the time.

The new study attempts to trace the sisters' terrible journey, first to Auschwitz-Birkenau in central Poland, then to Bergen-Belsen in November 1944, as the Russian army closed in from the east.

Wake-up Call


What's A Little Sedition

The 47 Traitors

The Obama administration's plan for U.N. climate change talks encountered swift opposition after its release Tuesday, with Republican leaders warning other countries to "proceed with caution" in negotiations with Washington because any deal could be later undone.

The White House is seeking to enshrine its pledge in a global climate agreement to be negotiated Nov. 30 to Dec. 11 in Paris. It calls for cutting greenhouse gas emissions by close to 28 percent from 2005 levels within a decade, using a host of existing laws and executive actions targeting power plants, vehicles, oil and gas production and buildings.

But Republican critics say the administration lacks the political and legal backing to commit the United States to an international agreement.

"Considering that two-thirds of the U.S. federal government hasn't even signed off on the Clean Power Plan and 13 states have already pledged to fight it, our international partners should proceed with caution before entering into a binding, unattainable deal," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Bought & Paid For) said.

McConnell's warnings echoed the tone of a March 9 "open letter" from 47 Republican senators to Iran, in which they warned a Republican president would not be bound to honor a nuclear agreement struck by Democrat Obama without congressional approval, calling it a "mere executive agreement."

PR Move


Agribusiness Monsanto Co., whose popular weed killer Roundup has been partly blamed by critics for knocking out monarch butterflies' habitat, said Tuesday it is committing $4 million to efforts to stem the worrisome decline of the black-and-orange insects.

The St. Louis-based company said that of $3.6 million it is donating to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation's Monarch Butterfly Conservation Fund, one-third of that money matches what the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is contributing. The remaining funds will be set aside to mirror what other federal agencies plan to offer over the next three years.

Monsanto also intends to contribute $400,000 to experts and groups working on behalf of the butterfly, which is being considered for federal protection because its numbers have plunged by more than 90 percent in the past two decades.

Monsanto said its grants will go to monarch-related initiatives that include the nonprofit Monarch Watch conservation-and-research program based at the University of Kansas, the Iowa Monarch Conservation Consortium, Pheasants Forever, the University of Illinois-Chicago's Energy Resources Center and the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada.

He Gets It

GOP Pollster

At a Monitor breakfast Tuesday, GOP pollster Whit Ayers praised Indiana's political system for adapting "remarkably quickly" to the "value conflict" that has erupted over its new religious freedom law, which opponents say discriminates against the gay community. The state's top legislators say they will adjust the law so that discrimination is no longer an issue.

Indiana's Republican Gov. Mike Pence has come under scathing criticism for his defense of the law. Several potential GOP presidential candidates have expressed their support for Governor Pence, including Jeb Bush, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Ben Carson, and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, whom Mr. Ayers is advising.

While a majority of Americans support gay marriage, nearly three-quarters of Republicans do not, according to Gallup. That's not true for young Republicans, however. More than 60 percent of Republican voters under 30 do support gay marriage, said Ayers, the founder and president of North Star Opinion Research.

"We're headed to the point where a political candidate who is perceived as anti-gay at the presidential level will never connect with people under 30 years old," Ayers said, citing the rapidly changing views on same-sex marriage in America.

Republican Success Story


Kansas collected $11 million less in taxes than expected this month, and top Republican legislators acknowledged Tuesday that they'll be forced to consider larger tax increases than anticipated to balance the state budget.

The Department of Revenue reported tax collections of about $391 million in March, when officials expected $402 million, a shortfall of 2.8 percent. Since the current fiscal year began in July 2014, the state has collected almost $4 billion in taxes - still $48 million, or 1.2 percent, short of expectations.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback (R-Demented) and the GOP-controlled Legislature must close a budget shortfall projected at nearly $600 million for the fiscal year that begins July 1. Senators and House members are negotiating over a $15.5 billion spending plan and anticipated having to raise about $140 million in new revenues.

The budget shortfall arose after Brownback pushed lawmakers to cut personal income taxes in 2012 and 2013, to stimulate the economy. The state cut its top rate 29 percent and exempted 281,000 business owners and 53,000 farmers altogether.
