M Is FOR MASHUP - June 3rd, 2015
Volume Ten Of INTENSE PSYCHEDELIA
By DJ Useo
I've mentioned before how I like the creativity that working with psychedelic music affords. So much so, in fact, that I made nine volumes of what I called "INTENSE PSYCHEDELIA" mashups. They encompass the types of music that people associate with the psychedelic genre from the mid-sixties up to the present. I especially enjoy revving the tracks up to what I call "intensity".
For instance here's "Warriors Dance Sometimes" ( My Bloody Valentine vs Moloko vs Armand Van Helden & Deep Creed ) ( hearthis.at/vXMfxz7w/warriors-dance-sometimes-my-bloody-valentine-vs-moloko-vs-armand-van-helden-deep-creed/ ) , the preview track from 2013's volume 8. It contains the classic guitar, & vocals of early 1990's My Bloody Valentine with the present day club techno of Armand Van Helden & Deep Creed, & cool vocals of Moloko. Yet, I like to think it has a pleasant appeal on top of the beats, the buzzing, & the roaring.
It was the prompting, & requests I got from so many that inspired me to go for volume ten. Same as always, eh? Lol! Every time someone inquired, whether in person, or over email chat, I started up a couple new psychedelic tracks. Eventually, over many months, I had twenty-six tracks. I sat down with the Useoettes, & they told me which ones to exclude, & which ones to include. We agreed on every track. Ni-ice, eh? …& the bonus is I still have many nifty mixes to do what I want to with, apart from this new INTENSE PSYCHEDELIA project.
Here's the playlist I chose then for final release.

Before I made it available, I offered it to a few mixer pals to preview the entire 'record'. The response back was totally favorable, so I posted this about a month before my next big project, SUMMER BOOTY 2015 & now you can have IP10 for ever & ever.
I'm always surprised when I mix up a new album project, but I suppose I'll keep doing it for a while more. I love to listen to SUMMER BOOTY 2014, & I'm already well into mixing my ninth Halloween ep. Having heard some of it already, I know you'll enjoy it much.
I hope you like the new INTENSE PSYCHEDELIA album.

Overcast til mid-afternoon.
William Shatner will boldly travel across the U.S. on a three-wheeled motorcycle.
The "Star Trek" star announced plans Monday for the cross-country mission to promote his custom trike and raise awareness about the American Legion.
Shatner partnered with motorcycle builder American Wrench to create the Rivet motorcycle. The Aurora, Illinois-based company said the silver studded bike is inspired by the B-17 bomber.
American Wrench describes the Rivet as a "landjet" that will feature a V8 engine and an exposed cockpit with seating "only for a captain."
Former security contractor Edward Snowden won a Norwegian prize for freedom of expression Tuesday and received yet another invitation to leave his exile and receive the award in person.
The Norwegian Academy of Literature and Freedom of Expression said the 31-year old fugitive had won the Bjornson Prize -- named after a Norwegian Nobel literature laureate -- "for his work protecting privacy and for shining a critical light on US surveillance of its citizens and others."
Snowden, a former analyst at the US National Security Agency, has lived in exile in Russia since 2013 after revealing mass spying programmes by the United States and its allies.
The academy requested assurances from the Norwegian government that Snowden would not be extradited to the US if he travelled to Norway to receive the 100,000 kroner ($12,700, 11,500 euros) prize money in person on September 5.
Norway's justice ministry said it was up to immigration authorities, who indicated they would consider any entry request when and if they received one.
'Reverse Meteorological Spring'
Spring weather in downtown Los Angeles and other areas of Southern California flip-flopped this year as temperatures cooled from March to May, creating a so-called reverse meteorological spring for the first time in nearly a century, officials said on Tuesday.
A reverse meteorological spring is rare and indicative of the abnormally warm and dry weather plaguing California, which has suffered severe drought conditions for the last four years, National Weather Service weather specialist Stuart Seto said.
"What this means is that springtime started out warmer in March and then April was cooler and May was cooler," Seto said. "It's an unusual occurrence that's only happened three times in the history since we've been keeping records."
The last reverse meteorological springs in the area were in 1914 and 1921, according to National Weather Service records dating to 1877.

KFC Going to Court
GMO Spider Chickens
KFC wants the world to know: There's no such thing as an eight-legged, six-winged chicken.
Among the urban legends that have dogged the fried-chicken chain for years, it seems a particularly stubborn one alleges that the company has created a mutant strain of arachnid chickens capable of producing a bumper crop of drumsticks and hot wings.
Apparently, the rumors have proved so persistent in China, where KFC is the largest fast-food purveyor of fried chicken, that parent company Yum Brands has filed suit against three companies, according to Reuters, that it charges have been among the most persistent online rumormongers: Yingchenanzhi Success and Culture Communication, Shanxi Weilukuang Technology Co., and Taiyuan Zero Point Technology.
Lost in the translation here is why, exactly, these three companies might have fueled a widespread campaign of chicken disinformation on the Internet. Neither Reuters nor any of the news organizations that have picked up the story appear to speculate about what might have motivated the corporate triad to try to bring down KFC with stomach-turning allegations of monster spider chickens.
The chain says it has found upwards of 4,000 messages online containing libelous claims-including photos!-that have been viewed more than 100,000 times. KFC is seeking the equivalent of $242,000 from each defendant as well as an apology. The Shanghai Xuhui District People's Court has accepted the case, according to the Associated Press.

National Lampoon Inc. has agreed to pay $3 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that a financier convicted of swindling investors in an Ohio company fraudulently transferred millions of dollars from those investors to the entertainment company known for movies such as "Animal House."
A judge must approve that proposed settlement, which was filed last week in federal bankruptcy court in Ohio.
The bankruptcy trustee for Fair Finance Co. had sued National Lampoon in 2011, seeking more than $9 million and alleging that money was fraudulently moved from Fair Finance to the Los Angeles-based company which owns the rights to the "Vacation," ''Animal House" and "Van Wilder" movies.
Those transfers allegedly occurred when National Lampoon was controlled by former Fair Finance executive Timothy Durham, who was its CEO, and another man, Daniel Laikin, according to the suit.
Durham and two Fair Finance associates were convicted in 2012 of bilking investors in Akron, Ohio-based Fair Finance out of more than $200 million.
A Russian freelance journalist who claims she went undercover as a pro-government Internet troll says she is suing her former employer in a bid to expose the workings of the Kremlin's online army.
"This propaganda on the Internet is very dangerous," Lyudmila Savchuk, 34, told AFP on Tuesday. "It has to be brought to light."
Savchuk has lodged a case against her mysterious former employer, The Agency for Internet Studies, in Saint Petersburg where she says she and colleagues spent their days praising President Vladimir Putin and slamming his enemies online.
She is claiming the outfit hired employees without putting them through the books and said she had not been paid in full.
For a monthly salary of 40,000 to 50,000 rubles ($750-$940 at the current rate) Savchuk bombarded website comment pages with eulogies of the Kremlin strongman and slammed Ukrainian "Fascists."
The Israeli military on Tuesday scrapped a punishment for a U.S.-born Israeli soldier who had caused a stink by violating the military's kosher rules by eating a pork sandwich while in uniform.
The soldier was initially given an 11-day prison sentence. The punishment was later converted to being confined to base for the same duration - after relatives talked to the media and a lawmaker wrote to the defense minister about the case.
But the military then changed its decision yet again, and cancelled any punishment.
Israel Radio said the soldier, who moved to Israel from Boston recently, was unaware of the army's strict dietary restrictions and was merely snacking on a lunch his secular grandmother had made him.

Jean Ritchie, the Kentucky-born folksinger who brought the centuries-old ballads she grew up with to a wide audience from the 1950s onward, died Monday evening. She was 92. Ritchie died in her home in Berea, Kentucky, with family around her, her niece Judy Hudson said.
The tall, red-haired Ritchie, who grew up in Kentucky's Cumberland mountains, sang ballads with a clear soprano voice. She accompanied herself on the guitar, autoharp or the mountain dulcimer, a string instrument played while placed on the performer's lap that Ritchie helped rescue from obscurity.
Among the hundreds of songs she performed were "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair," ''Old Virginny," ''One Morning in May" and "Aunt Sal's Song."
As part of the folk music boom of the 1950s and '60s, she was a contemporary of such giants as Pete Seeger, Odetta and Doc Watson. She influenced a generation of younger singers such as Judy Collins and Emmylou Harris.
"I see folk music as a river that never stopped flowing," she told The New York Times in 1980. "Sometimes a few people go to it and sometimes a lot of people do. But it's always there."
Johnny Cash recorded her "The L. & N. Don't Stop Here Anymore" and Harris performed "Sweet Sorrow in the Wind." In a 1978 Rolling Stone interview, Bob Dylan cited her as one of the folksingers he listened to, along with Woody Guthrie, Big Bill Broonzy and Leadbelly.
She combined her authentic mountain musical background with a scholarly touch, even travelling overseas on a Fulbright scholarship in the early 1950s to trace the roots of her traditional music.
Her books included "The Swapping Song Book," a 1952 collection of songs she sang as a child in Kentucky, accompanied by notes on life and customs in the Cumberland Mountains and photos by her husband, photographer George Pickow.
Along with Seeger, Odetta, Joan Baez and Earl Scruggs, she was one of the singers at the first Newport Folk Festival in 1959. As the Times wrote earlier that year, "there is no disputing that Jean Ritchie is one of the finest authentic traditional folk singers we have in the United States today."
She was born in 1922, the youngest of 14 children in the southern Appalachian community of Viper, Ky. In a 2008 Associated Press interview, Ritchie said singing together was a daily part of life for the family.
She moved to New York to become a social worker after graduating from the University of Kentucky in 1946. Her first solo recording was the 1952 "Jean Ritchie Sings Traditional Songs of Her Kentucky Mountain Family."
Her 1955 book, "They Sang the Moon Up: Singing Family of the Cumberlands," traced her family's roots from the time James Ritchie came from England in 1768, fought in the Revolutionary War and migrated west to Kentucky. It was illustrated by Maurice Sendak and included 42 of the songs her family members liked to sing.
Ritchie and her husband, who married in 1950, lived for years in Port Washington, N.Y., but they returned to her mountain home in Kentucky, where they had a cabin, a few months each year. They had two sons, Peter and Jonathan, who also became musicians.
Along with Loretta Lynn, Rosemary Clooney and the Everly Brothers, she was one of 12 musicians and groups chosen for the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame's first inductees in 2001.
A singer-actor who transformed himself into such show biz legends as Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand and Peggy Lee during a career that spanned decades has died. Jim Bailey was 77.
Bailey was a Philadelphia native. He performed at New York's Carnegie Hall, at London's Palladium and in numerous showrooms in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, New Jersey. In one notable engagement he impersonated Garland alongside her daughter Liza Minnelli.
He appeared on variety shows including those of Ed Sullivan and Carol Burnett and was a guest 14 times on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson."
He had guest-starring roles on TV series including "Ally McBeal," ''The Rockford Files" and "Here's Lucy" with Lucille Ball.
