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.
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 )

Šarune Mac: 10+ Of The Funniest Wikipedia Edits By Internet Vandals (Bored Panda)
With so much fake news floating around these days, it's difficult to know just who and what to believe. While Wikipedia is usually a solid source of factual information, from time to time people slip some alternative facts in there too. From Charlie Sheen being half man, half cocaine to American Olympic swimmer Katie Ledecky being a humanoid evolution spawned in the bowels of Poseidon, you never can be too sure if what you're reading is 100% truth.
The galactic year, also known as a cosmic year, is the duration of time required for the Solar System to orbit once around the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Estimates of the length of one orbit range from 225 to 250 million terrestrial years. The Solar System is traveling at an average speed of 828,000 km/h (230 km/s) or 514,000 mph (143 mi/s) within its trajectory around the galactic center, a speed at which an object could circumnavigate the Earth's equator in 2 minutes and 54 seconds; that speed corresponds to approximately one 1300th of the speed of light.
The galactic year provides a conveniently usable unit for depicting cosmic and geological time periods together. By contrast, a "billion-year" scale does not allow for useful discrimination between geologic events, and a "million-year" scale requires some rather large numbers.
Randall was first and correct with:
a Cosmic Year
A Galactic Year is also known as a Cosmic Year and is the time it takes
for our solar system to orbit around the center of the galaxy. The
coolest part is that scientists have different estimates on how long
that is, with guesses ranging from 225 to 250 million earth years.

A Galactic year is also known as a cosmic year. I didn't know there was such a thing.
Hot. The north wind is relentless and is quickly drying out the land. No rain in the near future, either. It's going to be a long dry season.
A cosmic year. If you think a given earth year is cosmic, you are falling way short!

Billy in Cypress replied:
The galactic year, aka "cosmic year", is the duration of time required for a Solar System to orbit once around the the supper massive black hole at the center of a galaxy. Like the planets orbiting a sun, each solar system or star in a galaxy has a cosmic year that is of a different duration.
I wonder how long the the CpPDJT-ID year will last, i.e. the number of earth days it will be before the narcissistic, prevaricating, corrupt and vile piece of shit collapses under the weight of its own enormous ego. It will be a great day if we survive that long.
Dale of Diamondy Springs in Norcali answered:
Why it's a cosmic year. All of us who've been out in the Ozone know that. Tramp never been out there for sure. They ought to keel haul those Motherfuckers that attempted to teach him history. Does anybody remember having to be able to pass a "Constitution" test in order to get out of Eighth grade?
Typical warm to hot weather. We usually get a few unseasonably hot days in May.

A Galactic year is also known as a Cosmic year, which is just as silly. I didn't know anything about this until consulting the Wikis. It's all very interesting and there's way too much information to print out here so here's the link, look it up. Of course it's mostly speculation especially the part about present day and beyond, but hey, it could happen.

After his incredibly moving opening monologue last night about his newborn son's open heart surgery and his support for the Affordable Care Act, late night host Jimmy Kimmel got a tweet from the man who made it happen, former President Barack Obama.
In case you haven't seen the monologue (and truly, it's a must-watch), Kimmel reveals that his son was born with a heart defect that required emergency open heart surgery. After thanking the wonderful doctors and nurses who saved his son's life, Kimmel talked to his audience about the incredible importance of the ACA.
"If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to - it shouldn't matter how much money you make," the tearful host said. "I think that's something that whether you're a Republican or Democrat or something else, we all agree on that."
"No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child's life...it just shouldn't happen," he pleaded.
Obama, seeing Kimmel's impassioned speech (which, again is a must-watch), responded in a tweet Tuesday afternoon.
Donald Trump's (R-Crooked) supporters are accusing CNN of censorship for not airing an advertisement touting the president's accomplishments, which the network said Tuesday it rejected because it was its own form of fake news.
The ad from Trump's campaign - he became a declared candidate for reelection in 2020 on Jan. 19 - says that "America has rarely seen such success" and lists a series of actions from the first 100 days of his presidency.
"You wouldn't know it from watching the news. America is winning, and President Trump is making America great again," the ad says. The faces of NBC's Andrea Mitchell, CNN's Wolf Blitzer, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, ABC's George Stephanopoulos and CBS' Scott Pelley are shown onscreen behind the phrase "fake news."
CNN said it requested the campaign remove the "false graphic."
"The mainstream media is not fake news, and therefore the ad is false and per policy will be accepted only if that graphic is deleted," CNN tweeted in response.
A tentative deal was reached between screenwriters and producers Tuesday, averting a strike that could have crippled TV and film production.
The three-year agreement, which requires ratification by members of the Writers Guild of America, was confirmed by the guild and producers' spokesman Jarryd Gonzales shortly after the current contract expired early Tuesday. The deal came after a flurry of last-minute bargaining, conducted during a media blackout that offered no tangible details about whether picket lines would go up until after midnight Tuesday.
In a memo to its members, the guild said gains were made across the board, including contributions to the union's health plan that should "ensure its solvency for years to come" - an issue that writers considered key.
The union said it also made strides in pay for series with fewer episodes per season, and in residuals. Members overall will net $130 million more over the contract's life than they were expected to accept, according to the memo.
The agreement spares the late-night shows that would immediately have gone dark without writers, and allows the networks to pursue their schedules for the upcoming TV season without interruption. Movie production would have felt a strike's sting more gradually.
They may not have lost themselves in the music or the moment but a judge and nine lawyers in a New Zealand courtroom did listen politely to Eminem's "Lose Yourself" as a copyright trial involving the country's ruling political party began Monday.
The Detroit-based music publishers for Eminem are suing New Zealand's conservative National Party, alleging the soundtrack for a 2014 election campaign ad copied the rapper's acclaimed 2002 song. Titled "Eminem Esque," the track has the familiar urgent, pulsing beat of the original.
The party has previously said it purchased the track through an Australian-based supplier and doesn't believe it has infringed anyone's copyright.
In 2014, when the case was filed, lawmaker Steven Joyce said he thought the use of the song was "pretty legal," and that Eminem's team "are just having a crack and a bit of an eye for the main chance because it's an election campaign." That response was widely ridiculed, including by comedian John Oliver on "Last Week Tonight."
"Pretty legal? That's not a concept that exists. That's like being sort-of dead," Oliver joked on the show.
Asked for his assessment of the cable news landscape in the era of Donald Trump (R-Fabulist), Zucker began his reply by saying: "Obviously Fox News is, uh," then paused for more than 11 seconds. "So, look, there's three cable news networks. Certainly in primetime and in the morning, Fox is state-run TV and is extolling the line out of the White House."
Zucker said MSNBC "has become the opposition" and CNN "is seeking the truth."
"Do you think the other two networks are not broadcasting the truth?" the New Yorker's David Remnick asked.
"Well, I think that there are clear agendas at work at the other cable news networks depending on their political points of view," Zucker replied.
Britain can no longer rely on U.S. leadership on Middle East policy and must work more closely with Europe to ensure the Iran nuclear deal stays in place, among other policies, a committee of lawmakers said in a report on Tuesday.
The deal between Iran and six major powers restricts Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of international oil and financial sanctions.
During his U.S. presidential campaign, Donald Trump (R-Crooked) called the agreement "the worst deal ever negotiated" and his administration has launched a review of whether lifting sanctions is in the United States' national security interests.
"We can no longer assume America will set the tone for the West's relationship with the Middle East," said David Howell, chairman of the British parliament's House of Lords International Relations Committee.
"The new U.S. administration has the potential to destabilize further the region ... The U.S. President has taken positions that are unconstructive and could even escalate conflict," it said.
A 12-year-old girl was barred from a Malaysian chess tournament over her "seductive" dress, her coach has claimed, igniting public outrage against the organisers of the competition in the Muslim-majority nation.
The Malaysian Chess Federation on Tuesday said it would investigate and denied that religious sensitivities had prompted the decision to exclude the young player, as it seeks to curb the public backlash.
In a widely-shared Facebook post, trainer Kaushal Khandhar said his pupil felt "harassed and humiliated" after being forced to withdraw in the middle of the the National Scholastic Chess Championship on April 14.
The girl had been told her knee-length dress was "seductive and a temptation from a certain angle far, far away", he said in the post on Thursday, demanding an apology from the organisers.
Malaysia is generally regarded as a moderate Muslim country, but fears have grown in recent years that it is becoming increasingly conservative.
