M Is FOR MASHUP - June 17th, 2015

Talking About MASH OF THE TITANS 4

By DJ Useo

Far away in a far away land, there's a mashup video artist who is not near, but far away. If he moves nearer, that would be a new article, so I'll stick with him living far away. What were we talking about? Oh, yeah! The far away video artist. His name is Panos T & in addition to cutting, & looping mashup video content, he also is far away. Oh, I said that already. What I meant to say is that he assembles terrific mashup compilations. At you can find his 3 main series posted. There's 'MASHUP CULTURE' ( 3 volumes ), 'BOOTYLICIOUS' ( 2 volumes ), & the subject of todays' article, 'MASH OF THE TITANS' ( ).

Well, I guess that covers that. Would you like to hear more about being far away? More about 'MASH OF THE TITANS'? Ok, it's your dime ( so to speak ) . Panos T is a quite beloved figure among the bootleggers abounding in the current mashup scene. Here's his video to Mashup-Germany's 'Top Of The Pops 2011' [What The Fuck] (Rihanna/ Britney/ Taio Cruz/ Adele +more) ( ) That gives a fine perception of why bootleggers are drawn to him. Luckily, for us, Panos T is into mashup compilations, & his new one is available now!

'MASH OF THE TITANS 4' is a dream collection of the most far away, I mean, adored bootleggers. On the collection you'll find the latest creations from folk like DJs From Mars, Lobsterdust, Jarod Ripley, DJ Schmolli, & many more names entirely familiar to hundreds of thousands of online music listeners. This 4th volume adhere to the formula in great way. The tracks all contain the most well known modern source artists. In keeping with the display artwork, which refrains from mentioning who the mashers mixed with, I'll merely say, they're all made with the best top 40 finds.

Even if they're not far away, the tracks on this new Panos T collection will leave you satisfied, & not far away. This is the perfect mashup collection for all who enjoy the mainstream mashup above all others. You'll find that when you play it for friends, or family, or those who are far away, it'll be a welcome reaction you'll experience. I wager most people couldn't even recognize these as mashups. They all sound like they began this way. A well done deception, eh? Check out the full playlist, & obtain the not at all far away links here
( )

That's a lot of great bootleg music mentioned above. Many, many discs worth of awesome mixes. None of which require money to change 'hands'. Indulge yourself. I'll be back next week with the release of my 9th Annual 'SUMMER BOOTY The Summer Mashup Album'. Have the week of good!

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Since 1981, what is the leading peanut butter brand in the United States?

      Jif                                                      Source

Jif is an American brand of peanut butter made by The J.M. Smucker Company, which purchased the brand from Procter & Gamble in 2001. In 1955, Procter & Gamble bought Big Top peanut butter from William T. Young of Kentucky and, in the ensuing years, reformulated and rebranded it to compete with Skippy and Peter Pan. P. & G. named its product Jif, used oils other than peanut oil in its hydrogenation process, and sweetened the recipe, adding sugar and molasses. The original Creamy and Crunchy style Jif peanut butters both debuted in 1958. In 1974, Extra Crunchy Jif was introduced, followed by Simply Jif in 1991, a peanut butter variant with low sodium and less sugar than regular Jif. Reduced Fat Jif was introduced three years later in 1994. In 2014, Jif Whips was released as the first whipped peanut butter,

Since 1981, Jif has been the leading peanut butter brand in the United States.        Source

Calls Out T-Rump

Neil Young

It didn't take long for Donald Trump to hit the first bump of what's sure to be a long road to reach the White House.

The New York real estate mogul arrived on stage at his campaign kickoff announcement Tuesday as the sounds of Neil Young's "Rockin' In The Free World" blared through the atrium at Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan.

The only problem? Young says Trump, a Republican, didn't have permission to use the music. The two-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame says he's backing Sen. Bernie Sanders in the race for president.

While the endorsement might help Sanders, the Vermont independent who is running for the Democratic nomination, it won't do him much good at the ballot box. Young is a Canadian citizen.

Sharia Law

Efland, North Carolina

After a third-grader tearfully recounted how another boy had called him "gay" during gym class, teacher Omar Currie chose to raise the issue during story time by reading his students a fable about a prince who falls in love with another prince, ending with a happily-ever-after royal wedding.

That decision in April ignited a public outcry from some parents in the rural hamlet of Efland, North Carolina, resulting in Currie's resignation this week from a job he loved. The assistant principal who loaned Currie her copy of "King & King" has also resigned, and outraged parents are pressuring administrators at the Orange County Schools to ban the book.

"When I read the story, the reaction of parents didn't come into my mind," Currie, 25, said Tuesday. "In that moment, it just seemed natural to me to read the book and have a conversation about treating people with respect. My focus then was on the child, and helping the child."

Currie knows firsthand what it is like to be bullied. Growing up gay and black in a small town in the eastern part of the state, his memories of middle school are of being a frequent target for teasing and slurs.

Within hours after reading the book to his students, Currie said he got a call from the school's principal requesting a meeting in her office for the following morning. The parents of three children soon filed written complaints to a school review committee, which twice upheld the use of the book after heated public meetings. But the school's principal also issued a new directive that teachers must submit an advance list of all books they intend to read with students to their parents.

Not On Your Own Time


Pot may be legal in Colorado, but you can still be fired for using it.

The state Supreme Court ruled 6-0 Monday that a medical marijuana patient who was fired after failing a drug test cannot get his job back. The case was being watched closely by employers and pot smokers in states that have legalized medical or recreational marijuana.

Colorado became at least the fourth state in which courts have ruled against medical marijuana patients fired for pot use. Supreme courts in California, Montana and Washington state have made similar rulings, and federal courts in Colorado and Michigan also have rejected such claims.

The Colorado worker, Brandon Coats, is a quadriplegic who was fired by Dish Network after failing a 2010 drug test. The company agreed that Coats wasn't high on the job but said it has a zero-tolerance drug policy.

Monster Energy Verdict

Beastie Boys

The maker of the Monster Energy drink must pay $668,000 of the Beastie Boys' legal fees after the rappers chose to win at all costs in their copyright violation trial, a decision that resulted in a $1.7 million jury verdict in their favour, a judge says.

U.S. District Judge Paul Engelmayer wrote in a ruling Monday that his review of the band's legal bills suggests that the "Beastie Boys opted to pay for, and received, the 'Cadillac Escalade,' not the 'Honda Civic'" of legal representation.

He said his attorney fee award fell well short of the $2.4 million in legal fees that was sought from the Corona, California-based Monster Energy Co., but it was still sizeable enough that the band will come out ahead by more than $532,000 above its reasonable costs.

Last June, the Beastie Boys - known in part for the anthem "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)" off their 1986 debut album - won their verdict from a federal jury weighing the value of five songs used by Monster without authorization in a video.

Wake-up Call


Shifted Southwest

Mount Everest

A devastating earthquake that hit Nepal in April moved Mount Everest three centimetres (just over an inch) to the southwest, but did not change its height, according to Chinese research published on Tuesday.

The 7.8-magnitude quake reversed the gradual northeasterly course of the world's highest peak, which straddles Nepal and China, the National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation found.

But its height -- usually given as 8,848 metres (29,029 feet) -- was unchanged by the disaster, according to the research, published in Chinese state media.

The report said Everest had moved 40 centimetres to the northeast over the past decade at a speed of four centimetres a year, and risen three centimetres over the same period.

Class-Based Justice

Conrad Hilton

Paris Hilton's youngest brother, Conrad, has been sentenced to community service and a $5,000 fine for disrupting a flight from London to Los Angeles last year.

The 21-year-old was ordered Tuesday to complete 750 hours of community service and undergo mental health and substance abuse treatment. He pleaded guilty in March to misdemeanour assault.

Authorities say Hilton was on a British Airways flight in July when he called other passengers "peasants" and threatened to kill crew members. Flight attendants handcuffed him.

In court, the hotel fortune heir apologized and promised it wouldn't happen again.

Canadian Passport Revoked

Paul Watson

Paul Watson, a Canadian environmentalist and star of a reality television show, says Canada has effectively barred him from returning to the country since his passport was seized three years ago by German authorities.

Watson, founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society whose boats have been involved in high seas confrontations, said he believes the decision was driven by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper's dislike of environmentalists. He said it was unlikely that a low-level bureaucrat would have unilaterally decided to confiscate his passport.

Watson, 64, who holds both U.S. and Canadian citizenship, had both passports seized by German authorities in 2012 after they detained him on warrants from Japan and Costa Rica.

German authorities later gave the passports to local U.S. and Canadian missions in Germany. But while the Americans returned his passport, he said the Canadian consulate in Frankfurt held onto his Canadian passport and officials declined to explain why they could not return it.

Watson, whose organization is featured on the reality television show "Whale Wars," said he has not been able to return to Canada because he is required to show his Canadian passport to return to the country. He said he has not attempted to return to Canada because he believes he would be turned away at the border.

Eastern Cougar

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Tuesday proposed removing the eastern cougar from the endangered species list, declaring that the cougars have likely been extinct for at least 70 years.

Recent sightings of cougars in the Northeast are believed to be migrating western mountain lions, Florida panthers or captive animals that were released into the wild, wildlife biologists said.

"We recognize that people have seen cougars in the wild in the eastern U.S.," said Martin Miller, northeast chief of endangered species. "Those cougars are not of the eastern cougar subspecies."

The big cats are known across the U.S. by a variety of names: Cougar, mountain lion, puma, panther, or catamount. The eastern cougar subspecies was listed as endangered in 1973.

Most of the eastern cougars disappeared in the 1800s as European settlers killed them to protect themselves and their livestock and as forests were harvested and the cougar's primary prey, white-tailed deer, nearly disappeared, officials said. The last records of eastern cougars are believed to be in Maine in 1938 and in New Brunswick, Canada, in 1932.

In Memory

Kirk Kerkorian

Billionaire Kirk Kerkorian, an eighth-grade dropout who built Las Vegas' biggest hotels, tried to take over Chrysler and bought and sold MGM at a profit three times, has died. He was 98.

The reserved, unpretentious Kerkorian spent much of his life trying to stay out of the spotlight and rarely gave interviews. He called himself a "small-town boy who got lucky."

He shunned glitzy Hollywood parties and movie premieres in favor of making deals. Rather than arrive at an event by limousine, he often drove himself in a Mercury station wagon.

After making his first fortune ferrying gamblers to Las Vegas with Trans International Airlines, he built the 30-story, 1,568-room International Hotel, the world's largest hotel when it opened in the late 1960s. He brought Elvis Presley to perform there in 1969 as the rock legend relaunched his live performance career.

Although medium-size by today's Sin City standards, the hotel, now the Westgate Las Vegas, represented a major risk when most properties averaged 250 rooms.

When Kerkorian opened the first MGM Grand in Las Vegas in the 1970s, it was again the world's largest hotel, containing more than 2,000 rooms and a 1,200-seat showroom. Years later, he would build another MGM Grand, this one with more than 5,000 rooms - again, the world's largest.

Elsewhere, Kerkorian bought and sold the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film studio three times, each time realizing a profit on his investment. He also invested heavily in the auto industry and made unsuccessful attempts to take over Chrysler.

He was born Kerkor Kerkorian in Fresno, California, in 1917, one of four children of a poor Armenian fruit grower.

During his brief boxing career, he became Pacific amateur welterweight champion. But he lacked the size to turn pro, so he went into business. During World War II, he worked for the RAF Air Transport Command in Canada, flying Mosquito bombers on dangerous delivery runs from Canada to Scotland.

Kerkorian married three times. He and his second wife had two daughters, Tracy and Linda.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

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.
