M Is FOR MASHUP - June 15th, 2016

Tomorrows Mashups Today!

By DJ Useo

Well, after having every major mashup host fink out on us, the newest host to appear comes from folk in the actual bootleg scene. I've started up with Sowndhaus ( ) myself, & I like it plenty. Who knows what will occur as time passes, but many of the well known home producers are finding it a good place to have your creations.

Now that we have our "own" hosting, I think many of us feel freer to use the source artists we want to. Let's take a look at some of the musical blends being offered from mixers posting at Sowndhaus, & see if it looks that way to y'all.

01 - satis5d - "Begin Again With A Girl Like You" ( Knife Party vs Edwyn Collins )
  ( )

02 - DRA'man - "Rebel Autumn" ( Billy Idol vs Grieves )
   ( )

03 - Grave Danger - "Carry On By The Ocean" ( DNCE vs Kansas )
   ( )

04 - Skibilibop - "My Girl Makes Love" ( Public Enemy vs the Temptations )
   ( )

05 - DJ Useo - "Jeepster Takes You Back" ( T.Rex vs Modjo )
   ( )

06 - DJ Y alias JY (Checkdissout Productions) - "Come, Girl" ( Jain vs Digitalism vs The Beatles )
   ( )

Yes, it's only 6 new tracks, but I note the drastic reduction in top 40 artists. I hope you find favor with these creations. None of us can sell them, so we appreciate at least a little attention.

I'll be back next week with the all new 10th & final volume of SUMMER BOOTY The Summer Mashup Album. You can find the last 9 volumes down the page here
   ( )

Treat yourself! You deserve it!

Tune in to KOPIMI RADIO w/ Mazanga Von Badman this next Sunday afternoon to hear the live Summer Booty 2016 premiere.    Details here

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What is the largest order of marsupials in the Western Hemisphere?

       Opossums                                                      Source

The opossums, also known as possums, are marsupial mammals of the order Didelphimorphia. The largest order of marsupials in the Western Hemisphere, it comprises 103 or more species in 19 genera. Opossums originated in South America, and entered North America in the Great American Interchange following the connection of the two continents. Their unspecialized biology, flexible diet, and reproductive habits make them successful colonizers and survivors in diverse locations and conditions.        Source

Plagiarism Trial Underway

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page and Robert Plant appeared in court Tuesday to defend "Stairway to Heaven," one of the most iconic songs in rock history, from accusations of plagiarism.

The two artists, dressed in black suits, arrived to a throng of reporters at Los Angeles federal court, where a jury of four men and four women was selected ahead of opening arguments in the high-profile case.

Spirit, a psychedelic band from Los Angeles that enjoyed a niche following but never attained the superstardom of Zeppelin, claims the iconic melancholic guitar riff that opens "Stairway to Heaven" was lifted from its instrumental track "Taurus."

Spirit's guitarist Randy Wolfe -- who went by the nickname Randy California -- never took legal action and died in 1997, but a lawsuit was filed by his trustee Michael Skidmore, who was present in court Tuesday.

Led Zeppelin was the opening act for Spirit when the hard British rockers -- Plant, Page, John Paul Jones and the since deceased John Bonham -- made their US debut on December 26, 1968 in Denver.

Appeals Court Upholds Rule

'Open Internet'

A US federal court ruled Tuesday that the Internet is effectively a public utility, upholding a hotly contested regulation requiring broadband firms to treat all online traffic equally.

The so-called "net neutrality" principle was upheld in a 2-1 decision by the US Appeals Court panel in Washington, a major ruling in a decade-long legal battle and the first court approval after two past efforts failed.

The ruling deals a setback to major broadband firms like Verizon and AT&T, which claimed the rules unfairly restrict providers and discourage investment.

Judge David Tatel, writing for the majority, said the Federal Communications Commission's decision last year to reclassify Internet firms as "common carriers" that can be regulated like phone companies "is a permissible exercise of its authority."

In a 115-page opinion, Tatel wrote that "the role of broadband providers is analogous to that of telephone companies: they act as neutral, indiscriminate platforms for transmission of speech of any and all users."

Returning to HBO

'Curb Your Enthusiasm'

Making good on years of tentative "we'll sees" from both the creator and network, Curb Your Enthusiasm will indeed return to HBO. The network announced a ninth season for the beloved Larry David comedy on Tuesday, though a formal return date was not included.

Curb Your Enthusiasm last aired an original episode in September 2011, and the nearly five-year gap since has seen neither HBO nor David ready to publicly dismiss the idea of revisiting the show. On the network end, former programming president Michael Lombardo had said he was "cautiously optimistic" about more Curb - while David, in keeping with his schtick, often appeared less than optimistic in the many instances he's been pressed about the subject.

On his decision to revisit his alter ego, David had this to say: "In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, 'I left, I did nothing, I returned.'"

Curb, starring David as an exaggerated version of himself, has skewered Hollywood and, more often, David since it premiered as a special in 1999. A total of 80 episodes have aired since, the biggest breaks between seasons taking place between the third and fourth and seventh and eighth runs.

Over its long, unconventional run, Curb has earned 39 Emmy nominations but only two wins (for directing and editing). The most recent season was one of its most popular, pulling in more than 2 million live viewers to an episode.

Takes On NRA


Following Sunday's tragic mass shooting in Orlando-the deadliest in US history-the American Medical Association has officially declared gun violence in the US an unrivaled public health crisis. With this declaration, the AMA will now actively lobby Congress to overturn legislation that has kept the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention from researching gun violence for the past 20 years-legislation backed largely by the National Rifle Association.

In a statement, AMA President Steven J. Stack, M.D, said:  "With approximately 30,000 men, women and children dying each year at the barrel of a gun in elementary schools, movie theaters, workplaces, houses of worship and on live television, the United States faces a public health crisis of gun violence. Even as America faces a crisis unrivaled in any other developed country, the Congress prohibits the CDC from conducting the very research that would help us understand the problems associated with gun violence and determine how to reduce the high rate of firearm-related deaths and injuries. An epidemiological analysis of gun violence is vital so physicians and other health providers, law enforcement, and society at large may be able to prevent injury, death and other harms to society resulting from firearms."

The AMA now joins other medical organizations, including the American College of Physicians and American College of Surgeons, in declaring gun violence a public health crisis and pushing for renewed research. However, the declaration from the AMA may hold the most clout as the powerful organization has a massive membership and is a top spender when it comes to lobbying. Between 1998 and 2011, the AMA came up as the second highest spender on lobbying in the country, shelling out around $263 million.

The legislation that the doctors' groups hope to overturn with that money stems from what some refer to as the Dickey Amendment, named after former Rep. Jay Dickey (R-Arkansas). In 1996, Dickey successfully introduced legislation that stripped $2.6 million from the CDC's budget-the exact amount the agency used for firearm-related research. While the money was later added back to the CDC's budget, so was wording in the appropriations bill that stipulated that the agency couldn't use federal funds to "advocate or promote gun control."

Appeals Court Voids Award

Jesse Ventura

A divided federal appeals court on Monday overturned a $1.85 million award that former Minnesota Governor and professional wrestler Jesse Ventura won after claiming he was defamed by the late author of the best-selling memoir "American Sniper."

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals voided a St. Paul, Minnesota jury's July 2014 award of $500,000 for defamation and about $1.35 million for unjust enrichment against the estate of former U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle. It ordered a new trial on the defamation claim.

In his 2012 memoir, Chris Kyle wrote that he had in October 2006 punched out a man identified as "Scruff Face" in a southern California bar, following the funeral of a fellow SEAL.

He said the incident occurred after Scruff Face criticized the Iraq war and former U.S. resident George W. Bush, said the SEALs deserved "to lose a few," and took a swing at Kyle.

While promoting the memoir, Kyle identified Ventura as Scruff Face.

House Votes To Protect

'Dark Money'

The Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to protect the identities of wealthy individuals and others who make anonymous, or "dark money," donations to politically active nonprofit groups.

The measure, which drew lobbying support from billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch, was approved in a 240-180 vote along party lines. It would prohibit the Internal Revenue Service from collecting the names and addresses of donors who contribute $5,000 or more to 501(c) organizations, a name that refers to the tax code section that covers them. The action sent the bill on to the Senate.

Republicans said the legislation would prevent the Internal Revenue Service from targeting conservative groups following 2013 revelations that Tea Party organizations were subjected to extra scrutiny.

Political spending by nonprofit groups including the Koch- aligned Americans for Prosperity has grown dramatically since 2010, when the Supreme Court opened the way to unlimited spending on political campaigns by individuals, corporations, unions and other groups in its landmark Citizens United ruling.

Warns of 'Fundamental Change' in Climate

UN's Weather Agency

Pointing to data released on Monday that May was the hottest on record, the UN weather agency warned of "fundamental change" unfolding in the global climate.

The World Meteorological Organization's Tuesday warning, reports the Associated Press was based on the Northern Hemisphere spring being the hottest ever and NASA's data showing May was the hottest on record. According NASA's data, worldwide temperatures for May was 1.67 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the 1951-1980 average.

Speaking to Associated Press, WMO climate director Dr. David Carlson says the data showed warm or warmer-than-average temperatures for 370 straight months worldwide. The agency said El Niño is only partly to blame for the recent rise in temperatures and noted that particularly high heat in the Arctic has caused an early onset of the annual melting of sea ice.

According to NASA's data, every month this year has seen record warmth, with global temperatures in February being the most above average since record-keeping began.

22-Pound Lump Of 2,000 Year-Old Butter Discovered


Two weeks ago, an Irish farmer found a massive hunk of ancient butter buried in his local bog. It's been sitting there for about 2,000 years, but experts say it's technically still edible.

The lump of "bog butter" weighs about 10 kilograms, or 22 pounds. It was found five meters deep into the bog in the country's northern Cavan county, and is being moved to the National Museum of Ireland for conservation.

The Irish Times first reported the discovery on June 9. "Theoretically the stuff is still edible-but we wouldn't say it's advisable," Andy Halpin, of the national museum's antiquities department, told the paper.

With its cool temperatures, low oxygen levels, and high acidity, bog environments act to naturally preserve butter. According to the food research nonprofit Nordic Food Lab, dairy was once a sign of wealth and used for taxes and rent, so a bog would have been a good place to keep your butter safe.

The discovery of big chunks of very old butter isn't uncommon. Around 400 such ancient lumps of butter have been found in Ireland and Scotland. Three years ago, turf cutters in Ireland's Offaly county found over 100 pounds of bog butter inside a keg. It was estimated to be 5,000 years old.

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
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.
