M Is FOR MASHUP - June 10th, 2015

Mashups From France!

By DJ Useo

Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but there's actually people living on the other side of that big body of salt water. Not a lot is known about them aside from they are called "The France". Well, I've uncovered some hitherto unknown information regarding their activities. It seems they actively practice an audio ritual involving cutting, & looping label music into new musical patterns much akin to our "mashups".

The mixes they make are newly available in the 4th volume of "La Masheillaise IV - Mashups francophones". I am personally impressed that the organizer of this project, Chocomang, has managed to not only gather together such gifted talent so successfully, but has repeated it four times. The language barrier inherent in this for English speakers is hardly noticeable, & the music holds no barriers at all. I wager that most people would acclimate quickly, especially after a few wet ones.

The people mixing on this two disc collection reads like a dream assortment to those of us following the bootleg scene. We've received countless instant gems from the likes of Amoraboy, Athom, ToToM, & Fissunix. They're only the beginning, though, as many more accomplished home producers hit the software to give you an entirely new perspective on modern French music. The best of French artists like Yelle, Ilona, & Billy Ze Kick intermingle seamlessly with non-French stars like Green Day, The Black Keys, & Avicii.

So, you realize that the former three excellent volumes are still available. This means you'll be astounded for the next few weeks with a marvelous bounty of French mashups. Zut Alors, I say! That's the extent of my French language knowledge. Aside from that, I got'ta say I'm mighty happy to welcome this new addition of cool people into the rest of us humans. I wonder why we didn't make them welcome before? ;) In any case, big kudos to Chocomang & all the others. Youse mugs rock!

I'll be back next week with a new super cool all star mashup collection! ( & it's not SUMMER BOOTY 2015…yet )

LEE SIEGEL: Why I Defaulted on My Student Loans (NY Times)
Maybe the problem was that I had reached beyond my lower-middle-class origins and taken out loans to attend a small private college to begin with. Maybe I should have stayed at a store called The Wild Pair, where I once had a nice stable job selling shoes after dropping out of the state college because I thought I deserved better, and naïvely tried to turn myself into a professional reader and writer on my own, without a college degree. I'd probably be district manager by now.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

The play, The Odd Couple, premiered on Broadway March 10, 1965, and starred Walter Matthau as Oscar Madison. Who played Felix Ungar?

      Art Carney                                                      Source

The Odd Couple is a play by Neil Simon. Following its premiere on Broadway in 1965, the characters were revived in a successful 1968 film and 1970s television series, as well as other derivative works and spin-offs. The plot concerns two mismatched roommates: the neat, uptight Felix Ungar and the slovenly, easygoing Oscar Madison. Simon adapted the play in 1985 to feature a pair of female roommates (Florence Ungar and Olive Madison) in The Female Odd Couple. An updated version of the 1965 show appeared in 2002 with the title Oscar and Felix: A New Look at the Odd Couple.

The Odd Couple premiered on Broadway at the Plymouth Theatre on March 10, 1965 and transferred to the Eugene O'Neill Theatre where it closed on July 2, 1967 after 964 performances and two previews. Directed by Mike Nichols, the cast starred Walter Matthau as Oscar Madison and Art Carney as Felix Ungar. The production gained Tony Awards for Walter Matthau, Best Actor (Play), Best Author (Play), Best Direction of a Play, and Best Scenic Design (Oliver Smith), and was nominated for Best Play.        Source

   Art Carney.

Jim from CA, retired to ID, said:

Randall wrote:
   In the movie, Felix was played (brilliantly) by

  ...but I find on further inspection that the original Broadway play starred Matthau as Oscar,
  while Felix was played by
  Art Carney

  favorite quote from
The Odd Couple:
     "I can't take it anymore, Felix, I'm cracking up. Everything you do irritates me. And when you're not here, the things I know you're gonna do when you come in irritate me. You leave me little notes on my pillow. Told you 158 times I can't stand little notes on my pillow. "We're all out of cornflakes. F.U."
  Took me three hours to figure out F.U. was Felix Ungar!"

Retrofitting 50 Theaters

Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino's just landed quite a punch in his never-ending fight against digital filmmaking.

In anticipation of his new film "The Hateful Eight," which was shot entirely in 70mm, Tarantino will reportedly take it upon himself to install 70mm projectors in 50 theaters worldwide.

The frames on a 70mm film are nearly the same height as standard 35mm film, but about twice as wide (and cost twice as much to produce). The end result is a higher-resolution and wider image on-screen.

The film is the first to use the Ultra Panavision 70 anamorphic lenses since 1966's "Khartoum," and THR reports that the upcoming "Star Wars" spinoff "Rogue One" will also use these lenses.

Climate Peril Stirring


Scientists on Tuesday called for action to defuse a time bomb of Arctic greenhouse gas as negotiators at UN talks grappled over a climate rescue pact.

About 1,500 billion tonnes of heat-trapping carbon gas are estimated to be locked in permafrost, which is thawing as the climate warms, according to new research.

Releasing the carbon will create a vicious cycle in Earth's global-warming problem, said Susan Natali of the Woods Hole Research Center in Massachusetts.

The estimated amount of carbon in permafrost -- perennially frozen ground covering about a quarter of exposed land in the northern hemisphere -- represents about twice the volume currently in the atmosphere, she said.

Court Sides With Parking-Meter 'Robin Hooders'

New Hampshire

New Hampshire's highest court on Tuesday largely sided with a group of activists known as "Robin Hooders," finding that a city's efforts to crack down on their practice of feeding strangers' parking meters violated their free speech rights.

The activists have regularly fed parking meters in downtown Keene, a small city in southwestern New Hampshire, and placed cards on windshields with a picture of Robin Hood stating: "Your meter expired! However, we saved you from the king's tariff!"

The merry band has also followed and at times confronted the parking enforcement officers, all the while recording their activities.

In 2013, the city of Keene sought to impose a buffer zone preventing the activists from interacting with or recording the officers on the grounds that they were creating a hostile work environment and thereby interfering with its contract with the employees.

However, the Supreme Court of New Hampshire on Tuesday upheld a lower court ruling that the city could not justify the injunction on the basis of "tortious interference" in its contract with the officers.

Pays Residents To Use Public Toilets


A city council in western India is planning to pay residents to use public toilets in a desperate attempt to stop legions of people urinating and defecating in public.

The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has decided to give residents one rupee a visit in a bid to draw them into its 300 public toilets and away from open areas and public walls, which often reek of urine.

AMC health officer Bhavikk Joshi said the offer would be trialed at 67 public facilities across Ahmedabad, the main city in western Gujarat state, where officers will give a coin to each user.

Many people in India consider toilets unhygienic and prefer to squat in the open, believing it more sanitary to defecate far from home.

Paying Millions to Whale Killers

Sea Shepherd

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society agreed to pay $2.55 million to Japan's Institute of Cetacean Research on Monday as part of a settlement to resolve a long-standing legal battle over the anti-whaling group's tactics against Japanese whaling ships in the Antarctic.

The settlement came the same day the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear Sea Shepherd's appeal of a federal court's finding that the group was in contempt of a court order to stay clear of Japanese whaling ships.

The activist group's tactics at sea include throwing smoke bombs at Japanese whaling ships and using metal-reinforced ropes to damage propellers and rudders. The question is whether those tactics-which typically take place in international waters-amount to piracy, and whether a U.S. court can order those activities to be stopped if they take place outside its jurisdiction.

Sea Shepherd believes it can't, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit Court upheld that it can. Now, thanks to the settlement, Sea Shepherd will be giving millions of dollars to an organization it has tirelessly battled against in a fight to save the whales.

What War On Women


Advocates on both sides of the abortion debate said Tuesday that they are stunned police arrested a Georgia woman on murder charges after a hospital social worker told officers she terminated her pregnancy by taking abortion pills.

Kenlissia Jones, 23, of Albany was being held at the Dougherty County jail on charges of malice murder and possession of a dangerous drug. District Attorney Greg Edwards said Tuesday afternoon that he is reviewing the case, but "as of right now she's still charged."

Jones was arrested Saturday after a county social services worker called police to a hospital, according to an Albany police report. A hospital social worker told police that Jones said she had taken four pills she purchased over the Internet "to induce labor" because she and her boyfriend had broken up.

The social worker told police Jones went into labor and delivered the fetus in a car on the way to the hospital. The fetus did not survive. The police report does not say how far along Jones was in her pregnancy.

WALB-TV reported earlier that authorities said Jones was about 5 ½ months pregnant.



West Bank Demands


China has told Israel it will not allow migrant builders to work on settlements in the occupied West Bank, a senior Israeli government official said on Monday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged during his reelection campaign to step up settlement construction, and cabinet ministers in his new government have called for more building in the occupied territories, which is seen as an obstacle to peace with the Palestinians.

And Israel is hoping to bring in thousands of foreign workers to accelerate the pace of the construction across the country and in the West Bank, media reported.

The Israeli official denied that China's decision had anything to do with growing calls for an economic and cultural boycott of the Jewish state.

The international community regards all Israeli construction on Palestinian land seized during the 1967 Six-Day War as illegal.

Squirrel Knocks Out Power

Bay Area

A squirrel knocked out power for some 45,000 energy customers in the San Francisco Bay area on Monday, according to officials and the local Contra Costa Times newspaper.

PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi told the Contra Costa Times that power was down in cities east of San Francisco, including Berkeley and Oakland, on Monday night after a squirrel "impacted equipment" at the El Cerrito substation. He gave no details

The downtown Berkeley station of the Bay Area Rapid Transit system was closed for several hours on Monday due to the outage, the agency said on its Twitter account.

Cities to the south, including San Jose, also suffered outages on Monday that Guidi said were caused by equipment failures due to triple-digit temperatures.

In Memory

Vincent Bugliosi

Vincent Bugliosi was an anonymous junior member of the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office when he was handed the case that, for better or worse, would define his life: the prosecution of one of America's most notorious mass murderers, Charles Manson.

During a closely watched and oftentimes bizarre trial that lasted nearly a year, the cool, relentless prosecutor became nearly as famous Manson himself as he denounced the ersatz hippie cult leader as the "dictatorial maharajah of a tribe of bootlicking slaves."

After all were convicted, Bugliosi would go on to recount the case in "Helter Skelter," one of the bestselling true-crime books of all time.

Later he sought public office, but was defeated in bids for Los Angeles County district attorney and California attorney general. He tried his hand as a defence attorney for a time but said never felt comfortable in that role.

Eventually he carved out a career as a successful writer, publishing a dozen books, among them the true-crime stories "And The Sea Will Tell" and "Till Death Do Us Part." Other non-fiction works included "Outrage: The Five Reasons Why O. J. Simpson Got Away With Murder."

He was most proud of "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy," which took him 20 years to write, said his son, Vincent Bugliosi Jr.

Born in Hibbing, Minnesota, in 1934, Bugliosi attended the University of Miami at Coral Gables, Florida, on a tennis scholarship. He earned a law degree from the University of California, Los Angeles.

He and his wife of 59 years, Gail, had two children, Wendy and Vincent Jr.

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.
