M Is FOR MASHUP - May 20th, 2020

At Home With Spider's Lockdown Mashups 2020

By DJ Useo

Audioboots Mashup Forum ( ) has begun their own label for releasing Solo Artists' Mashup Albums. The first release in this auspicious series is "Spider's Lockdown Mashups 2020". I've heard this collection of DJ Spider tracks a lot by now, & I can safely urge you to discover it's refined bootleg nature. I think it's an excellent assortment where all tracks maintain the highest quality.

Spider himself offers this statement - "All New Mashups made during the lockdown except 'The Killers vs. Olive'. I originally made this back in 2009 and have been listening to it again recently. There were a couple of vocal clashes so decided to give it another go as I managed to source some better material.

Also got into a bit of a Disco Rock vibe. Really looking forward to getting back behind the decks to perform and play them to a live audience!

Hope you like what you hear? feedback always welcome…".

On the album you'll hear pairings like Bryan Adams vs Agnes, Clean Bandit vs David Guetta, Earth, Wind, & Fire vs Bon Jovi, & Trammps vs The Killers, plus 10 more. Spider is a highly skilled live DJ, as well as one of the world's best bootleggers. When I want to put together a comp, I reach out to him to be a contributor because I know he mixes currently, & has honed abilities that can meet any challenge.

Spider is a long-term Audioboots member whose tracks are always among the most popular posted there. You can find lots of his stuff easily available on the forum once you discover how excellent this record is. Grab the gratis downloadable zip file from this page here

Trivia Question of the Day

The most successful single of Louis Armstrong's career also won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 1965, and when it hit number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, it ended the Beatles' streak of three number-one hits in a row over 14 consecutive weeks. What is the title of this song?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What is a perfect diamond, flawless and without inclusions, of at least 100 carats (20 g) called?

       A Paragon                                                      Source

A paragon is a perfect diamond - flawless and without inclusions. In the 16th century, a mass of 12 carats (2.4 g) was sufficient to qualify for this designation, but today the threshold lies at 100 carats (20 g).

The largest flawless diamond in the world is known as The Paragon, a D-color gem weighing 137.82 carats (27.564 g),[2] and the tenth largest white diamond in the world. The gem was mined in Brazil and attracted attention for being an exceptional white, flawless stone of great size. The Mayfair-based jeweller Graff Diamonds acquired the stone in Antwerp, cut it into an unusual seven-sided kite shield configuration, and set it in a necklace which separates to both necklace and bracelet lengths. Apart from the main stone, this necklace also contains rare pink, blue, and yellow diamonds, making a total mass of 190.27 carats (38.054 g). The necklace has associations with the end of the millennium and was worn by model Naomi Campbell at a diamond gala held by De Beers and Versace at Syon House in 1999.        Source

from Bruce



• Reality can be fabulous - you never know what you will see. World-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma once got a flat tire while traveling on Germany's speedy Autobahn. After calling for help, he practiced his cello along the side of the Autobahn to help get ready for a concert that night in Frankfurt. Mr. Ma says about the passing motorists, "People couldn't believe what they were seeing!"


• Good musicians can do some very bad things. Early in his career, Elvis Costello performed at the Agora Club in Columbus, Ohio. Following the performance, he drank with rock veteran Stephen Stills and promptly made an *ss out of himself, infuriating Mr. Stills. Mr. Costello called James Brown a "jive-ass n*gger" and Ray Charles "nothing but an ignorant blind singer." Lots of bad publicity resulted, of course, but the great Ray Charles was forgiving although he still made his opinion of Mr. Costello's remarks known, saying, "Anyone could get drunk at least once in his life. Drunken talk isn't meant to be printed in the paper, and people should judge Mr. Costello by his songs rather than his stupid bar talk." Ironically, Mr. Costello had a few months earlier sung at a Rock Against Racism concert.

• When soprano Beverly Sills married Peter Greenough, she faced prejudice because of her religion. Her new relatives shunned her because she was Jewish, and her Jewish relatives shunned her because she had married someone who was not Jewish. Ms. Sills decided to have a party for an old friend, and she sent out invitations for 40 people, most of whom accepted. She then hired a caterer and musicians and bought flowers. On the evening of the party, only two of the 40 people whom she had invited showed up.

• When Gustav Mahler was conductor of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, anti-Semites made fun of his prominent nose, which they called Jewish. Tiring of the anti-Semitism, Mr. Mahler eventually left Berlin and began working in Vienna. Because of Mr. Mahler's talent as a conductor and as a composer, Berlin music lovers wanted him back, and they soon wrote him that conditions in Berlin had changed. Mr. Mahler wrote back, "Conditions may have changed, but my nose is still the same."

• In 1942, music researcher Alan Lomax became very aware of prejudice in the South. Mr. Lomax, in a conversation with another white man who happened to be the Sheriff of Tunica County, referred to African-American blues musician Man House as "Mister." The sheriff was not amused. A little later, Mr. Lomax, who was now suspected of being an "outside agitator," was informed that it would be a very good idea for him to leave Tunica County. He did.

• Jazz singer Billie Holiday was light skinned. During the Jim Crow days, while she was performing with the Count Basie Orchestra at the Fox Theater in Detroit, the theater's management worried that patrons might think that Ms. Holiday was white and that the Count Basie Orchestra was integrated, so they insisted that she wear dark makeup.


• Mahalia Jackson knew what was right for her kind of music, and she knew how to get what was right for her kind of music. Ed Sullivan often had African-American entertainers on his TV variety show, even at a time when some businesses were leery about advertising on shows with African-Americans. That makes him one of the good guys. However, he wanted Ms. Jackson to sing a gospel song with accompaniment by a choir and an orchestra. Ms. Jackson wanted to be accompanied by only a piano and an organ. Therefore, she barged into Mr. Sullivan's dressing room before the show started. Mr. Sullivan was in his underpants, but she told him, "Don't worry about your shorts. I'm Mahalia Jackson, and I just came to tell you I don't want all those horns blowin' behind me when I sing. All I want is my piano and my organ and my own way of singing." Ms. Jackson got what she wanted.

The Sideshow - by Avedon Carol


Facing Extinction

Globe Theatre

London's iconic Shakespeare's Globe Theatre has said it is facing closure because the coronavirus pandemic has had a "devastating" impact on its finances.

In a stark submission to a UK parliamentary committee, the 23-year-old institution warned that if it is unable to open its doors before September, it will require £5M ($6M) in urgent funding to avoid collapse.

The theatre, a replica of William Shakespeare's original 1599 Elizabethan open-air venue, said it has been unable to access Arts Council England funding due its size, while other government support schemes have not been enough to plug the financial hole blown open by coronavirus.

Shakespeare's Globe was founded by Sam Wanamaker in 1997 and has played host to some big-name performances. Ian McKellen, Christopher Plummer, Judi Dench, Jude Law, Ralph Fiennes and David Tennent are among those who have trodden the boards at the South Bank venue.

Drama Skips Theaters

Tom Hanks

Apple TV Plus has bought worldwide rights from Sony Pictures to the Tom Hanks World War II drama "Greyhound" following a bidding war for the movie, which was previously set for a Father's Day theatrical release.

Six-month-old Apple TV Plus announced the deal Tuesday. The streaming service did not disclose when it will release "Greyhound."

Sony had originally scheduled "Greyhound" to be theatrically released in the U.S. on June 12 but the release was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "Greyhound" is set in the early days of World War II as an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by Hanks' Capt. Ernest Krause, crosses the treacherous North Atlantic while being hotly pursued by wolf packs of Nazi submarines.

The studio had announced in early March that the film has shifted its release date back five weeks from May 8 to June 12. Sony also released the first trailer for "Greyhound" in early March, opening with Hanks in prayer and about to set sail. He then reveals to his crew that this is his first crossing of the Atlantic. The crew also finds out they are entering territory where plane cover cannot reach them for five full days. The ship, which is operating under the code name "Greyhound," manages to destroy a Nazi sub, setting off a celebration and instilling the crew the confidence in the captain.

"Fall" 2020 Schedule:


Any other year, CBS' 2020-21 schedule would be considered very conservative, with three nights left intact and the other three undergoing only minor changes, including adding two new series, drama The Equalizer starring Queen Latifah and Chuck Lorre comedy B Positive, and holding S.W.A.T. for midseason.

But in the year of COVID-19, this could be considered a risky schedule, as all entertainment series in CBS' fall lineup, except for The Amazing Race installment already in the can, are yet to be filmed with restart of Hollywood production still in limbo. CBS' fall schedule is in stark contrast with the other two broadcast lineups announced so far, as both Fox and the CW relied predominantly on already produced content, including acquisitions, for fall, pushing the launch of their regular rosters to January and beyond.

"We don't view this schedule as risky, we view this schedule as very strong and very proven," CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl told Deadline. "In terms of production, we would say 'fall' with quotes; I don't know if everything would start the third week of September. Yet we are very hopeful that we would get into production at some point this summer, and we would have the majority of our lineup for the fall."

CBS is currently mining the library of new corporate sibling Paramount Pictures for blockbusters to anchor its recently resurrected Sunday movie night, which has done well for the network. The network also has access to shows on sister streaming platform CBS All Access, including The Good Fight, whose first season aired on CBS last summer, and has on deck half a season of Pop's One Day at a Time, which was supposed to run on CBS this summer.




Waters Slams Gilmour

Pink Floyd

Former Pink Floyd member Roger Waters has taken to social media to rail against long-ago partner David Gilmour for considering him "irrelevant" and "banning" him from the group's website and social media, complaining that his solo projects are not allowed to come up for mention while those of Gilmour's wife are promoted.

In a video message posted to Twitter, Waters went so far as to say that they could "just change the name of the band to Spinal Tap, and then everything will be hunky dory," before adding, "All right, I'm not gonna get all weird and sarcastic, although as you know, that is a direction in which I am known to sometimes lean temperamentally."

The video was posted Monday night as "an announcement from me… and when I mention the Pink Floyd website, I also mean the Facebook page and all the rest."

Waters first gave thanks to fans for positive reception to a new version of Floyd's "Mother" that he recorded and released with some socially-distanced help from his band during the pandemic, saying, "It warms my heart." Cutting to the chase, he said, "It does bring up the question of why is this video not available on a website that calls itself the Pink Floyd website? Well, the answer to that is because nothing from me is on the website. I am banned by David Gilmour from the website. About a year ago, I convened a sort of Camp David for the surviving members of Pink Floyd at a hotel at the airport in London, where I proposed all kinds of measures to get past this awful impasse that we have and predicament that we find ourselves in. It bore no fruit, I'm sorry to say."

'Badge Of Honor'

US President Donald Trump (R-Dotard) has argued it is "a badge of honour" that the US has the world's highest number of confirmed Covid-19 infections.

"I look at that as, in a certain respect, as being a good thing because it means our testing is much better," he said at the White House.

The US has 1.5 million coronavirus cases and nearly 92,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.

In second place is Russia, with nearly 300,000 confirmed cases.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, a federal agency, the US had conducted 12.6m coronavirus tests by Tuesday.

'Badge Of Honor'



Latest Casualty


It's been a White House tradition for decades: A first-term president hosts a ceremony in the East Room for the unveiling of the official portrait of his immediate predecessor that will hang in the halls of the White House for posterity.

Republican presidents have done it for Democratic presidents, and vice versa - even when one of them ascended to the White House by defeating or sharply criticizing the other.

"We may have our differences politically," President Barack Obama said when he hosted former President George W. Bush for his portrait unveiling in 2012, "but the presidency transcends those differences."

Yet this modern ritual won't be taking place between Obama and President Donald Trump (R-Ill Mannered), according to people familiar with the matter. And if Trump wins a second term in November, it could be 2025 before Obama returns to the White House to see his portrait displayed among every U.S. president from George Washington to Bush.

Trump is unconcerned about shunning yet another presidential custom, and he has attacked Obama to an extent no other president has done to a predecessor. Most recently he's made unfounded accusations that Obama committed an unspecified crime.




Museum of the Bible

Epic of Gilgamesh

Federal authorities announced the forfeiture Monday of an ancient tablet inscribed with part of the Epic of Gilgamesh from a museum backed by the arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby.

The piece, known as the Gilgamesh Dream Tablet, bearing a version of what's considered perhaps the world's oldest work of literature, was featured at the Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C. Hobby Lobby bought it in 2014 for $1.6 million from an auction house that was later found to have lied about its origins, federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York said.

Hobby Lobby, based in Oklahoma, was fined $3 million in 2017 after federal authorities said it bought thousands of artifacts that had been smuggled out of Iraq for the museum. The company opened the $500 million museum in November 2017.

The museum's chairman, Steve Green, is the president of Hobby Lobby, which won a Supreme Court case in 2014 over the Affordable Care Act's birth control requirements.

The documents say Hobby Lobby bought it from an unidentified auction house, which told the company the piece was acquired in San Francisco "well before" 1981. However, the tablet was, in fact, purchased by an unidentified antiquities dealer in 2003 from the family of the former head of the Jordanian Antiquities Association, The New York Times reported.

Epic of Gilgamesh





Renovation works at Auschwitz have turned up spoons, forks, cobbler's tools and other objects hidden beneath a chimney flue -- some that might have been used to plan escapes, a national fund said Tuesday.

The objects, which also include knives, hooks, scissors, pieces of leather and parts of shoes, were found last month in block 17 of the main camp, Austria's National Fund for Victims of National Socialism said.

The fund commissioned the renovation and restoration works in the block at the former concentration camp in Poland in preparation for an exhibition.

The items were likely hidden in the chimney because block 17 was used to house manual workers.

The objects are not expected to be on display at the exhibition, due to open in 2021, but instead have been handed over to the Auschwitz-Birkenau museum for conservation.
