M Is FOR MASHUP - April 27th, 2016

DJ Useo - Best Of Vol 5 - 2 Discs!

By DJ Useo

Yup, I dood it. I released volume 5 in my own "Best Of" series.
( ) I personally selected from among 50 tracks the 30 that you all let me know were your favorites.

There's lots of variety, & much clashing of genres. Many are only available currently on this collection, as the hosting sites have been purging mashups by everyone, including me.

Many of these tracks have benefited from lots of listeners. Some have even been afforded the honor of being played on KOPIMI RADIO with Mazanga Von Badman ( ) . For an online mashup producer the effect of all that interest is evident. I tried harder, & the tracks got even better. That's what many are saying to me. It's right nice, I tells youse.

The tracks on this collection mix & mash artists like Sleater-Kinney, The Caesars, Adam Lambert, & many more. Plenty of these tracks contain elements of modern techno artists that you may not know, but will love. Artists like Feed Me, Blake Glen, Kon Up, & Pegboard Nerds that I enjoy often. In fact most of my blend ideas begin with me listening to various techno styles.

There's no silly music like on my last FRIKKENFRACK mashup collection ( ) . I went for high appeal with this assortment. For me, the one that gets most cemented into my cortex is disc two's "Crazy Little Crush" ( R.E.M. vs Queen ) . The way the R.E.M. weaves in & out over the rockabillified Queen really sends me.

There's a preview track ( ) to see if mashup blends like these are your kind of thing. In this case, the track is a video mashup ( ) with lots of original art drawn by ME! :D "Am I Awake Inside God" ( They Might Be Giants vs Itus vs Riki ) benefits from the video creativity of AtoZ, & represents this collection well. If you like it, you might enjoy more bootleg videos by me ( ) & AtoZ ( ) .

So, you get two complete discs ( digitally ) plus covers & text for the low, low cost of bupkis!

Grab the whole shebang for nawt from the mirror links here ( )
You can also find the first 4 volumes here ( )

I hope this whets your appetite for more mashups, because I know of many more group mashup comps coming over the next couple months. Share if you care. :)

BTW - Please consider yourselves all invited to participate in posts at AUDIOBOOTS mashup forum ( ) . We're hoping for like minded individuals who enjoy expressing themselves. Mashing skills are not required. The benefits are enormous!

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What country is the world's biggest producer, consumer and exporter of chili peppers?

       India                                                      Source

The chili pepper (also chile pepper or chilli pepper, from Nahuatl chilli) is the fruit of plants from the genus Capsicum, members of the nightshade family, Solanaceae.

India is the world's biggest producer, consumer and exporter of chili peppers. Guntur in the South Indian state of Andhra Pradesh produces 30% of all the chilies produced in India. Andhra Pradesh as a whole contributes 75% of India's chili exports.        Source

Unseen Footage Released


Never-before-seen footage of The Beatles "mucking around" in a make-up studio ahead of a television performance, shot more than half a century ago, was released by Australia's national film and sound archive Tuesday.

The 49-second black-and-white silent film clip -- which the national archive described as "really rare" -- was shot with an 8mm camera belonging to Australian dancer and make-up artist Dawn Swane, who was working at Granada TV in Manchester, Britain, at that time.

The previously unreleased footage, from November 1, 1965, shows the four members of the legendary band having fun in front of the camera as their make-up is applied.

"I was in the make-up room. And so we were having some champagne," Swane, now 83, said in a statement released by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA).

The clip, along with other home movies, including British actor Michael Caine in the make-up chair, was donated by Swane's daughter Melinda Doring to the national archive.

Wrote For FBI Magazine

Harper Lee

Charles J Shields -- whose updated Harper Lee biography, "Mockingbird" was released Tuesday -- says the late author wrote an unsigned article for a magazine published by former FBI agents about the case in Truman Capote's non-fiction novel "In Cold Blood."

"Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee, From Scout to Go Set a Watchman" was orginally published by Henry Holt in 2006.

Harper Lee accompanied Capote in March 1960 on his assignment from The New Yorker to research the murder of four members of the Clutter family in rural Kansas. Capote later published the book "In Cold Blood" about the case in 1966.

Shields told the British newspaper The Guardian how he found the story. During his research for the update of his biography, Shields found an item in a Garden City, Kansas newspaper announcing that an article about the Federal Bureau of Investigation's work on the case would appear in Grapevine, a magazine published by the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI for its membership.

The notice, from February 1960, read, in part: "Nelle Harper Lee, young writer who came to Garden City with Truman Capote to gather material for a New Yorker magazine article on the Clutter case, wrote the piece for Grapevine. Miss Harper's first novel is due for publication by Random House this spring and advance reports say it is bound to be a success."

Unveil Giant Gift


Palestinians on Tuesday inaugurated a giant statue of Nelson Mandela donated by the South African city of Johannesburg to their political capital in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

The six-metre (20-foot) two-tonne bronze statue was a gift from Johannesburg with which Ramallah is twinned.

"I think that Nelson Mandela himself would have been extremely proud of what has been done today," Parks Tau, the mayor of the South African city, told AFP.

Mandela, who died in 2013, was South Africa's first president after the era of apartheid, a regime of segregation that the Palestinians accuse Israel of also imposing.

He was an ardent supporter of the Palestinian cause and a champion for Middle East peace.

Chile Reburies

Pablo Neruda

Chile reburied Nobel prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda's remains Tuesday after exhuming them to determine whether he was assassinated by late dictator Augusto Pinochet's regime -- a mystery that still lingers.

Three years after they were disinterred to be tested for traces of poison, Neruda's remains were returned to his grave at his former home in the resort town of Isla Negra, facing the Pacific Ocean in line with his last wishes.

Neruda, a celebrated poet, politician, diplomat and bohemian, died in 1973 aged 69, just days after Pinochet, then the head of the Chilean army, overthrew Socialist president Salvador Allende in a bloody coup.

The writer, who was also a prominent member of the Chilean Communist party, had been preparing to flee into exile in Mexico to lead the resistance against Pinochet's regime.

Forensic scientists at the University of Murcia in Spain said last year they had identified a massive, unexplained bacterial infection in Neruda's remains.

Police Text Scandal

San Francisco

Details of a second batch of racist and homophobic text messages sent by a San Francisco police officer seem at odds with the image of a rainbow-flagged city that prides itself on diversity.

But people who have long complained of mistreatment by police are unsurprised, saying that the dozens of texts released by the city's public defender on Tuesday reflect a city where minorities feel increasingly harassed, whether by police or by developers eying traditionally ethnic neighborhoods for gleaming new condos.

San Francisco is amid a technology-based jobs boom that has added thousands of wealthier newcomers to an already crowded city where the median price of a house is now more than $1 million. Growing tension between the people who have well-paying jobs and those who do not - many who are minorities- simmers beneath the city's veneer as a mecca to tech and tourism.

The offensive texts released Tuesday refer to a Latino man as a using a derogatory term and compare black people to "a pack of wild animals on the loose." The texts, which also disparage Indians, the homeless, gay people and President Barack Obama, are the second batch to rock the city since it was disclosed in late 2014 that another group of police officers had exchanged in racist and homophobic text messages in an unrelated corruption case.

The latest text messages emerged during a rape investigation of Jason Lai, a former officer who resigned from the department earlier this month. He had been accused of rape. Prosecutors declined to file rape charges but released the messages to the public defender, whose office is representing a defendant in a case involving Lai.

Theory Of Relativity Faces Satellite Test


Einstein's theory of general relativity is to be put to the test by a newly launched satellite in an experiment that could upend our understanding of physics.

The French "Microscope" orbiter will try to poke a hole in one of Einstein's most famous theories, which provides the basis for our modern understanding of gravity.

Scientists will use the kit to measure how two different pieces of metal -- one titanium and the other a platinum-rhodium alloy -- behave in orbit.

"In space, it is possible to study the relative motion of two bodies in almost perfect and permanent free fall aboard an orbiting satellite, shielded from perturbations encountered on Earth," said Arianespace, which put the satellite into orbit on Monday.

Einstein's theory suggests that in perfect free-fall, the two objects should move in exactly the same way. But if they are shown to behave differently "the principle will be violated: an event that would shake the foundations of physics", Arianespace added.

Sets New Speed Record

Levitating Sled

A new magnetic levitating (maglev) sled has blasted its way to a world speed record.

The lightning-fast sled is officially the fastest object of its kind, according to the U.S. Air Force. The 2,000-lb. (900 kilograms) sled, which was designed by an Air Force squadron to test the delicate instruments inside weapons systems, broke the world record for speed on March 4, eclipsing its own previous record that had been set just two days earlier.

"Today was the fastest test we've ever done with the maglev," Lt. Col. Shawn Morgenstern, commander of the 846th Test Squadron at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, said in a statement when they broke the record. "We went 633 miles per hour [1,019 km/h]. Wednesday, we went 513 miles per hour [826 km/h], and prior to that, we went 510 [821 km/h] - which was a couple years ago." (As a reference, the speed of sound, or Mach 1, is 761.2 mph [1,225 km/h]).

Though the whole test was over in a flash, it was the culmination of months of preparation. Magnetism pushes and steers the sled so that it hovers over a nearly frictionless track, while rockets accelerate the sled at 928 feet per second squared (nearly 283 meters per square second). The team spent months identifying the right materials and testing vibrations.

4,800-Year-Old Fossil


Archaeologists in Taiwan have found a 4,800-year-old human fossil of a mother holding an infant child in her arms, museum officials said on Tuesday.

The 48 sets of remains unearthed in graves in the Taichung area are the earliest trace of human activity found in central Taiwan. The most striking discovery among them was the skeleton of a young mother looking down at a child cradled in her arms.

"When it was unearthed, all of the archaeologists and staff members were shocked. Why? Because the mother was looking down at the baby in her hands," said Chu Whei-lee, a curator in the Anthropology Department at Taiwan's National Museum of Natural Science.

The excavation of the site began in May 2014 and took a year to complete. Carbon dating was used to determine the ages of the fossils, which included five children.

In Memory

Madeleine Sherwood

Madeleine Sherwood, who starred in the stage and film versions of the Tennessee Williams classics Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Sweet Bird of Youth, has died. She was 93.

Sherwood, perhaps best known as the non-nonsense Reverend Mother Superior Lydia Placido on the 1967-70 ABC sitcom The Flying Nun starring Sally Field, died Saturday at her childhood home in Lac Cornu, Quebec, family spokesperson Melissa Fitch told The Hollywood Reporter.

A native of Montreal, Sherwood studied under Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio in New York. She made her Broadway debut in 1952 replacing Kim Stanley in Horton Foote's The Chase, and a year later, she played Abigail, who accuses many in the town of Salem of witchcraft, in Arthur Miller's The Crucible.

Sherwood portrayed Mae Pollitt/Sister Woman in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, directed by Elia Kazan, then reprised the role for Richard Brooks in the 1958 film adaptation. In Sweet Bird of Youth, she starred as Miss Lucy on Broadway in 1959-60 and in the 1962 movie.

Her other Broadway credits include Camelot (1961), Williams' The Night of the Iguana (1962) - where she stepped in for Bette Davis - Do I Hear a Waltz? (1965), Inadmissible Evidence (1965) and Edward Albee's All Over (1971). Her final stage performance was in a play about Williams' mother, Miss Edwina.

Sherwood also worked for Kazan in the 1956 film Baby Doll, playing a nurse. Her movie résumé includes Otto Preminger's Hurry Sundown (1967), Pendulum (1969), The Changeling (1980), Resurrection (1980) and Teachers (1984).

She also appeared in the TV soap operas One Life to Live, Guiding Light and As the World Turns.

In the 1980s, Sherwood, Cicely Tyson and Joanne Woodward were the first actresses to receive a grant from the American Film Institute to direct short films (she wrote, directed and acted in a film called Good Night Sweet Prince).

Blacklisted during the McCarthy era, Sherwood was an active participant in the civil rights movement (she was arrested during a Freedom Walk in Alabama) in the 1960s and in the women's movement in the '70s. She twice was nominated for the Order of Canada.

Survivors include her daughter Chloe, two grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

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.
