M Is FOR MASHUP - May 31st, 2016

What Its Like To Be Mashed & Admired 2016

By DJ Useo

Are you ready for some solid gold mashups chosen by Satis5d? He's assembled a collection he calls "Mashed & Admired 2016 satis5d's absolute favorite mashups of the year".

In Satis5d's own words -

"It's May, 2017, so I figure it's safe to to put the finishing touches on 2016. This is the first of my annual 'favorites" mashup-only compilations. These aren't necessarily the best of the best, but they are the mashups that I absolutely love to listen to over and over again. When I say, "I'm adding this mashup to my playlist." This is where it's going. This edition has 83 songs (though I started with well over 100 contenders.) But I only keep as many as I can fit on one CD-R. 5-1/2 hours of pure listening pleasure (for me anyway. :1grin: )

Thank you to all who made this compilation possible. While it's Mashstix-heavy
( ) ( hey, I spend a lot of time listening to music there... and the music is good ) there are lots of mashups from outside of Mashstix as well. A special shout-out to Happy Cat Disco, SMASH, and Star Man whose work features prominently on this album."

The enlightening complete playlist is located here ( ) along with the stream, & download links. This one is perfect for fans of bootleg music, & also for the unitiated. There's 83 Satis5d-selected tracks from tons of established, & skilled bootleggers. It's a long set, but oh so rewarding. Mention my article to Satis5d, for sheer kicks. Probably all mine.

EXTRA BONUS - Kopimi Radio with Mazanga Von Badman plays "Mash Of The Titans 6", a 2 hour show with massively cool mashups throughout, as featured on the brand spanking new "Mash Of The Titans" album. Hosted by the dream deejay Mazanga, this is a guaranteed pleasure. Stream, or download here
( )

More mashups next week. Be strong, & keep holding on.

Angela Merkel - or "leader of the free world" as she is now to be known - did not wait long to see the back of Donald Trump before she made it clear that things have changed. She told a rally of 2,500 people in Munich where she kicked off her campaign to be re-elected that the EU must now be prepared to look after itself, that it could no longer depend on the UK or America. "The times in which we could completely depend on others are, to a certain extent, over I've experienced that in the last few days. We Europeans have to take fate into our own hands."

Suzanne Moore: Sorry Morrissey, but love and resistance are our best weapons against terror (The Guardian)
But there is a parallel politics of living in which we fight for the very things these murderers cannot stand by being them: girls having fun while their dads wait for them. Young women taking full possession of themselves. Gay people high on life. Mothers watching their daughters go wild. Our ability to do this now is because others have fought for these "freedoms". So now we continue, all while grieving and full of anger. And as we have in the past, we keep on dancing.

The Sideshow - by Avedon Carol


Out As 'CBS Evening News' Anchor

Scott Pelley

Scott Pelley is out as "CBS Evening News" anchor, and he'll be returning to full-time work at the network's flagship newsmagazine "60 Minutes."

Two people familiar with the situation confirmed reports on Wednesday that CBS is expected to announce Pelley's departure shortly. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

The CBS show is a distant third to ABC and NBC in the evening news rankings, and despite some critical success, has not been able to close the gap.

Reports of Pelley's departure first surfaced in the New York Post, which said Pelley's office at the evening news was being cleaned out on Tuesday. Pelley did not anchor the broadcast Tuesday, as it was announced he was on assignment for "60 Minutes."

Pelley began working at the "CBS Evening News" almost exactly six years ago, succeeding Katie Couric. It was a meat-and-potatoes newscast aligned with the traditions of CBS News, and lately has been produced by a former NBC News president, Steve Capus.

Costumes Are Powerful Meme

'Handmaid's Tale'

Earlier this week, 18 women dressed up in red cloaks and white bonnets, stood in pairs in the rotunda of the Texas state capitol, and began chanting, "Shame!" in unison. They didn't stop shouting for eight minutes.

They call themselves the Texas handmaids. You probably first saw them back in March, when images of their original protest in Austin went viral. That's when they sat silently in the Texas senate gallery, watching as lawmakers debated bills that would make it harder for women to get an abortion.

What you may not know is that their demonstrations, inspired by Margaret Atwood's classic dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale and Hulu's vivid TV adaptation, are slowly spreading across the country.

Women are holding sewing parties to turn yards of blood-red fabric into capes. They're swapping ideas on private Facebook pages about how to stage protests. They're even planning a coordinated demonstration where dozens of handmaids simultaneously show up at state capitols or in other public places in cities across the country.

If the visually striking meme takes off, it could become one of the most effective acts of protest from the resistance. The sight of even a dozen women wearing the handmaid costume, while staying silent and keeping their heads down, offers a stark contrast to a group of mostly white men deliberating over what happens to their bodies. The imagery is practically made for the digital era.

Duel With 'Pissing Pug'

'Fearless Girl'

People Wealthy white men are still deeply unhappy about "Fearless Girl," the sculpture that was installed near Wall Street to promote women in leadership and stare down "Charging Bull."

The New York Post reported on Monday that the sculptor Alex Gardega installed a statue of a small dog called "Pissing Pug" that aims at the left leg of "Fearless Girl."

The sculpture doesn't exactly look like a dog, but Gardega said that was intentional to convey how "Fearless Girl" downgrades "Charging Bull," the fixture that precedes both.

"Fearless Girl" was installed with a temporary permit on International Women's Day, March 8, by the mutual fund State Street Global Advisors as part of a campaign to pressure companies to add more women to their boards.

Arturo Di Modica, the creator of "Charging Bull," called it an advertising trick and appealed to New York City officials to remove the sculpture that stares at his own. He's suing State Street over copyright infringement.

Corals At Risk


Of all the visible effects of climate change, one the most emblematic are corals. And while the Great Barrier Reef off Australia's east coast is suffering horribly, having undergone two consecutive years of bleaching, it is hardly the only coral site that is facing negative impacts of warming ocean temperatures.

Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve (HBNP), a popular tourist destination and a protected area in O'ahu, Hawaii, is another place where corals near the shore are at risk of destruction due to the influence of the global trend of rising temperature. And the corals at O'ahu suffered through not two but three consecutive years of bleaching, from 2014 to 2016.

Documentation of the bleaching, carried out by researchers from the Coral Reef Ecology Lab at the Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology, found that 47 percent of reef flat corals at the nature preserve bleached overall, while 9.8 percent of corals died in the 2014 and 2015 bleaching events.

The open-access research, published Tuesday in the journal PeerJ under the title "Patterns of bleaching and mortality following widespread warming events in 2014 and 2015 at the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, Hawai'i," was undertaken by Paul Jokiel and his team from the marine biology institute. Jokiel's Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program has been keeping a watch on the corals in the area since 1999, and found a significant decrease in the shallow coral cover as early as 2002.

This is despite the fact HBNP is a protected area. There is no direct human fishing and harvesting in this part of O'ahu, leading to a great diversity in the local ecosystem. The variety of fish and marine life is a big draw for tourists.

Can Stay At Embassy


Ecuador's new President Lenin Moreno criticized Julian Assange as a "hacker" but stressed his country would continue providing asylum to the WikiLeaks founder fleeing international arrest.

Moreno, who took office this month, has struck a more critical tone toward Assange than his predecessor, Rafael Correa, who said earlier his country had "done its duty" by granting Assange asylum in 2012.

"Mr Assange is a hacker. That's something we reject and that I in particular personally reject," said Moreno, who warned Assange during the presidential campaign to "not interfere" in Ecuadoran politics.

"But I respect the situation in which he finds himself," holed up in Ecuador's embassy in London, Moreno said.

Blames Ouster On Culture With 'No Rules'


Former Fox News personality Bill "Falafel" O'Reilly (R-Propagandist) has lost his nightly show, but he's as busy as ever with his million-selling book career and determined to find new fans online.

In announcing his next book in the best-selling "Killing" historical series on Tuesday, O'Reilly reiterated his denial of the allegations of sexual harassment that led to his April ouster, blaming them on false, ideological attacks and a vicious culture in which there are "no rules."

"Allegations are not facts. Nobody's searching for the truth anymore," O'Reilly, who was fired in April amid allegations of sexual harassment that he has denied, told The Associated Press in one of his first interviews since his dismissal.

"Killing England: The Brutal Struggle for American Independence," which focuses on the Revolutionary War era, will be published Sept. 19, Henry Holt and Co. told the AP. The book will be co-written by O'Reilly's longtime collaborator, Martin Dugard. The six previous "Killing" books, which include "Killing Lincoln," ''Killing Reagan" and "Killing Kennedy," have consistently sold more than 1 million copies each in hardcover, a rare achievement in publishing for "nonfiction".

O'Reilly, for years Fox News' most popular and most lucrative anchor, said he wasn't worried that sales would fall off without having his show to promote his books. He hosts his own "No Spin News" podcast on, contributes to Glenn Beck's radio program on TheBlaze and said he would do whatever else was needed to publicize "Killing England." He said he was "forming alliances" with internet organizations, although he said no decisions had been made and did not cite any specific companies.

New Report


Donald Trump (R-Grifter) reportedly likes his intelligence briefings concise and filled with pictures.

According to a report in the US media, Mr Trump is eager to consume nuggets of classified information but often seems "indifferent to subtleties". Along with demanding brevity, the President has also encouraged his briefers to provide as many visual elements as possible.

Mr Trump's request for numerous graphics may be a reflection of his longtime career as a real estate developer, where he evaluated building designs to visualise what the property would ultimately look like.

Before being inaugurated as president, Mr Trump told Fox News in December: "You know, I'm, like, a smart person. I don't have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years."

Mr Trump is not known for being a voracious reader, but he manages to fill his days with plenty of political TV shows, according to Axios. He receives classified updates on the world's hot spots most mornings at about 10.30am, during which he often interrupts his briefers with questions as well as with random asides, the Post said.



Backs Merkel


Italy on Tuesday backed German Chancellor Angela Merkel's call for Europe to be a stronger player on the world stage in the era of Donald Trump (R-Crooked) and Brexit.

"We certainly share the idea that the future of Europe has to be in our own hands -- global challenges impose that," Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni said after meeting his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau in Rome.

The centre-left leader added: "That does not take anything away from the importance of transatlantic relations or the alliance with the United States.

"But the importance we give to these ties cannot lead to us renouncing fundamental principles such as our commitments against climate change and for open societies and free international trade."

Gentiloni was speaking after Merkel made waves with weekend remarks in which she suggested that Brexit-bound Britain and a Trump-led United States may no longer be reliable partners for the European Union.

Husband Files

Mary Kay Letourneau

Mary Kay Letourneau's husband has filed for separation from his former elementary school teacher, who served a prison term for their affair that started when he was 12.

Vili Fualaau, now 33, filed for legal separation earlier this month, according to TMZ and other media outlets.

The Seattle couple jumped into the national spotlight in 1997 after Letourneau was jailed for raping Fualaau, who was her student at Burien's Shorewood Elementary School. She was pregnant with Fualaau's first child at the time. She gave birth to their second daughter while serving time.

But Fualaau told that the separation was for business reasons. "Everything is fine between us," he said.

Letourneau pleaded guilty to two charges of child rape and served more than seven years in prison. When she was released in 2005, she and Fualaau petitioned a King County judge to lift an order barring them from seeing each other.

Australia plans to ban convicted pedophiles from traveling overseas in what the government said Tuesday is a world-first move to protect vulnerable children in Southeast Asia from exploitation.

Australian pedophiles are notorious for taking inexpensive vacations to nearby Southeast Asian and Pacific island countries to abuse children there.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said she would cancel the passports of around 20,000 pedophiles on the national child sex offender register under legislation that will be introduced to Parliament soon.

"There has been increasing community concern about sexual exploitation of vulnerable children and community concern is justified," she told reporters.

Almost 800 registered child sex offenders travelled overseas from Australia last year and about half went to Southeast Asian destinations, she said.
