M Is FOR MASHUP - June 22nd, 2016

Summer Booty Hits Tenth Anniversary

By DJ Useo

Well, I did it again. As was the case so many times before, I had decided in advance to take a pass on creating another Summer Booty The Summer Mashup Album. Then, the incredible tracks started coming in unsolicited, & I caved. Lol. As in the past, I now was committed to weeks of extra work, including inviting enough contributors to make sure it' would be a viable release. The friendly mashup forum AUDIOBOOTS would be the launching pad that rockets this project to the stars.

Beginning with a plan to somehow reach two "discs" worth of great tracks, I still chose to not decline any "great" mashups. As in most past years, this acceptance policy led to the project swelling to three "discs". All in all, I received only one mashup that didn't have the "vibe of eternal Summer" that was vital to the collections' success. It was a fine one, but without that "feeling", I declined it for inclusion. Gulp. I think Sgt Mash might still be peeved at me. Lol.

Invitations went out to those who were previous contributors, plus those that I thought could manage the requirements, & those who were currently mixing. The resulting combination of bootleggers quickly established the rock solid foundation of the supposed "last" Summer Booty. Early tracks like MP3J's "Get Digital" ( The Beatles vs Daft Punk ) & Solcofn's "History Of The Mack" ( Groove Armada vs Mark Morrison ) really got me into the full motivation required to finish this sucker.

Soon, the vibe hit hard with the invited peeps tracks & I was being blown away by more instant classics like Joan Caramba's "Can't Feel My Dinosaur" ( Was ( Not Was ) vs The Weeknd ), DRA'man's "How Deep Is Your Model" ( Calvin Harris vs Kraftwerk vs Tom Tom Club ), & Skibilibop's "Famous Family Affair" ( Mary G Blige vs Charli XCX ). The wonderful efforts done to grant us all this mashup joy, are very humbling to me. I must express gratitude & praise once more to the bootleggers who gave so freely of their skills.

Ultimately, thirty-one people give us fifty-three marvelous audio blends! Next up, AtoZ, who also gave us four tracks & four videos, provided the cover art that graces the release. Chocomang ( who made six incredible tracks ) then worked up a super hosting page for the project. DJ Petrushka, who had been intimately involved with coordination, also brought her best game with two unbelievable cuts. Still, the offerings arrived from the invited, & we thrilled to the work of Voicedude, Mumdy, DJ Spider, Mr Smuggler, & so very many more.

Lastly, on the day before the actual Summer Solstice release, the album was premiered on KOPIMI RADIO w/ Mazanga Von Badman in a far-reaching success of a live show. I marveled at the main group chat on Facebook that drew over one hundred fellow mashers. Most astonishing was the news that hundreds of thousands of listeners swelled the show into it's best numbers ever. All praise to Mazanga, who made it possible. Listen to the impressive fm show here

Preview track video from AtoZ "Electric Me" ( Steve Miller vs Eddy Grant ) is here ( )
along with three more of his Summer Booty videos.

I'm confident more videos will appear soon.

Just one last note to thank Rappy, who did the consummate track for this album. "Summer Booty" it is called & it contains fifteen artists on one single! Amazing it is. Rappy also brought on board some pals from Indonesia in the form of San Di, & DJ Zero, who fit in superbly. Thanks to youse mugs & everyone else who gave us enough tracks to last all Summer! Also, the previous nine volumes are all still available down the page here

I wonder if they'll get me to make an eleventh Summer Booty next year? ;)

Perhaps later this week he'll prove me totally wrong and announce he's loaning himself another $100 million or $200 million. But I doubt it. If he could, why would he have allowed himself to get into this money crunch?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

This American dancer, singer, actor, and choreographer was born Frederick Austerlitz. By what name is he more famously known?

       Fred Astaire                                                      Source

Fred Astaire (born Frederick Austerlitz; May 10, 1899 - June 22, 1987) was an American dancer, singer, actor, choreographer, musician, and television presenter.

His stage and subsequent film and television careers spanned a total of 76 years, during which he made 31 musical films and several award-winning television specials and issued numerous recordings.

Gene Kelly, another major innovator in filmed dance, said that "the history of dance on film begins with Astaire." Beyond film and television, many noted dancers and choreographers, including Rudolf Nureyev, Sammy Davis, Jr., Michael Jackson, Gregory Hines, Mikhail Baryshnikov, George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, and Madhuri Dixit, also acknowledged his importance and influence. Astaire ranks as the fifth greatest male star of Classic Hollywood cinema in AFI's 100 Years...100 Stars.        Source

   It is a little known footnote to History that Frederick Austerlitz was in reality a GERMAN SPY/ALIEN INVADER who was manufactured in much the same fashion as the HINDENBURG! YES! He was filled with HYDROGEN!! That is why his code name was "Fred Ast-AIR-e" He was, in fact, LIGHTER THAN AIR! That is why during lulls in filming his amazing movies, he had to tethered to a mooring to prevent floating up into the studio lights and causing a horrible disaster even worse than "Jaws III".

Hat Tip


Thanks, Michelle, for that link to Ludovico Einaudi playing piano by a glacier. My husband came back from a business trip to Italy in 2007 with "Divenire" and I was in love.

The timing of that video is great. I found out Friday that Mr. Einaudi will be playing at the Mondavi Center at U.C. Davis (15 miles from here) Oct. 7th. I immediately bought tickets, printed them out, put them in a card, and voila! Happy Father's Day!

I shared that video with my husband. Thanks again, Michelle! And you, too Marty - thanks for bringing people together.



Thanks, Deborah!

sprinkle a line of 20 mule team borax everywhere outdoors the ants (probably) will not cross the border

it is relatively harmless to plants and other animals

also i buy Terra liquid and place it as directed on pathways indoors

the ants carry it back and eventually it kills off the nest

we had a problem where multiple nests invaded out kitchen

it took months to kill them off(too many nests) but finally success

it's active ingredient is borax also

(I actually think that the reason that borax works is the connection with RAYGUN somehow poisons the nest) but thats my opinion and i'm sticking with it

gary in pa

Thanks, Gary!
FWIW, the temperature dropped nearly 30° and the ants are all gone.
Well, until the next heat wave.

Plant Testifues

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant denied on Tuesday having stolen the opening of the rock group's iconic song "Stairway to Heaven," telling a jury he had written the anthem decades ago while in the English countryside.

The 67-year-old musician told a Los Angeles federal court that the song at the center of a federal copyright case was clearly his work as well as that of Zeppelin guitarist-songwriter Jimmy Page.

He recalled hearing "Stairway" in its infancy in the early 1970s at Headley Grange, a recording and rehearsal venue in Hampshire, Britain, that the band used.

"That particular evening, I sat with Jimmy by the fire, and I had this first couplet that fit with what he was playing," he testified, recounting the beginning lyrics of the famous song.

Music expert Lawrence Ferrara of New York University has testified that any similarity between "Stairway" and "Taurus" could also be found in music written by composers for more than 300 years.

New Series 'Cosmic Crusaders'

Stan Lee

Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment has partnered with The Hollywood Reporter and global brand management company Genius Brands International on the launch of a new property, Stan Lee's Cosmic Crusaders.

The launch of the new animated series, aimed at 18- to 34-year-olds, coincides with THR's special salute "Stan Lee: 75 Years in the Business" in the upcoming Comic-Con issue. The announcement was made jointly Tuesday by Gill Champion, CEO and president of POW! Entertainment; The Hollywood Reporter's Entertainment Group president/chief creative officer Janice Min; and Andy Heyward, chairman and CEO of GBI.

A co-production of POW! Entertainment, GBI and THR, Stan Lee's Cosmic Crusaders was written by Fabian Nicieza (co-creator of Deadpool) based on a concept by Lee, who will edit and voice himself as one of the series' main characters. Superstar comic artist Todd McFarlane is creating the cover graphics for THR's special issue on Lee.

The show follows Lee, who, having come down with a case of writer's block, meets seven aliens who have crash-landed on Earth. Each of the aliens has superpowers; however, they can only use their powers in their homeland. On the verge of being captured by "the men in white coats," Lee offers the aliens sanctuary and puts them through intensive superhero immersion training, helping them learn how to access and use their powers on Earth.

Last Nuke Plant To Close


California's last nuclear power plant will close by 2025 under an accord announced Tuesday, ending three decades of safety debates that helped fuel the national anti-nuclear power movement.

The state's largest utility, Pacific Gas & Electric Co., and environmental groups announced the agreement on the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant, which sits along a Pacific Ocean bluff on California's central coast.

Environmentalists had pressed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for years to close Diablo, given its proximity to seismic faults in the earthquake-prone state.

Under the accord, PG&E has agreed not to seek relicensing for the plant, which supplies 9 percent of the state's power. The deal will replace the plant's production with solar and other forms of energy that don't emit climate-changing greenhouse gases.

Suggests Underground Link

Blind Catfish

A rare species of fish, typically found in Mexico, has been discovered in a cave in Texas suggesting the two countries are linked via caverns.

"Since the 1960s there have been rumors of sightings of blind, white catfishes in that area, but this is the first confirmation," said Dean Hendrickson of the University of Texas at Austin. "I've seen more of these things than anybody, and these specimens look just like the ones from Mexico."

The blind catfish-known as a Mexican blindcat-was recorded by a team from the University of Texas at Austin after being spotted and captured swimming near Del Rio in Texas. A National Park Service employee first spotted the fish with translucent skin and short, eyeless bodies, last April near limestone cave.

This discovery marks the first time the fish was seen outside of Mexican waters. The fish is typical to the northern waters of the Rio Grande.

Digby's Hullabaloo


Receives Standing O


Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump (R-Mountebank) met with nearly 1,000 evangelical Christians Tuesday morning in attempt to win over the GOP's most reliable voting bloc at a pivotal moment in his campaign.

Taking the stage to a standing ovation, the presumptive Republican nominee participated in a carefully orchestrated question-and-answer session in a hotel ballroom. The event was billed as a conversation where pre-selected conservative Christian leaders would ask Trump questions culled from a survey of all participants, on such topics as religious liberty, the military, abortion and attacks against religious minorities in the Middle East.

Former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee (R-Bigot) moderated the conversation, subtly nodding to Trump's lifestyle by joking that "this is not a pastoral search committee."

It was intimate as a gathering of 1,000 people can be, and as private. A sign at the event told the audience that photos were not allowed. "I'm not going to tell you who to vote for, but use your brain, which God gave you," retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson told the room as they prepared to welcome Trump, according to a tweet from a participant.

Police Reports Surface

Michael Jackson

Radar Online released police reports Tuesday (June 21) that appear to be from the Santa Barbara Country Sheriff's Department offering disturbing details of Michael Jackson's alleged pornography collection, seven years after the singer's death.

The 88-page report cites several picture books, magazines and videos containing images of nude and semi-nude children located during a raid at Jackson's Neverland Ranch. The items were also described as material intended to "groom" young victims and reduce their sexual inhibitions. The report also cites images of animal torture and sacrifice.

"Some of the documents appear to be copies of reports that were authored by Sheriff's Office personnel as well as evidentiary photographs taken by Sheriff's Office personnel interspersed with content that appears to be obtained off the internet or through unknown sources," a representative of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department said in an email to Billboard. "The Sheriff's Office did not release any of the documents and/or photographs to the media. The Sheriff's Office released all of its reports and the photographs as part of the required discovery process to the prosecution and the defense."

The rep continued: "The documents with a header titled Sheriff's Department that contain a case number appear to be Sheriff's Office documents. The photos that are interspersed appear to be some evidentiary photos taken by Sheriff's investigators and others are clearly obtained from the Internet."

Campaign Spends $6 Million With Trump Companies


Donald Trump (R-Grifter) is one of the wealthiest men to ever run for president, but his campaign appears to be flat broke. What's more, fundraising reports show he's used about $6 million in campaign money to pay his own companies and family members.

The billionaire businessman's financial woes were enough to inspire the mocking Twitter hashtag "TrumpSoPoor" on Tuesday and, far more seriously, give already reluctant donors a fresh batch of reasons to withhold their money.

Trump's campaign expenses are hardly inspiring confidence among people whose money he's pursuing. The spending includes a $423,000 May payment to Mar-a-Lago, the private club in Florida that serves as his vacation home, and enough Trump-branded bottled water to fill a bathtub.

Finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission detail a campaign unafraid to co-mingle political and business endeavors in an unprecedented way.

One more complication: The $46 million worth of loans Trump made to his campaign can be repaid with donor money, even though he insists he won't do that.

Pittsburgh TV


A former Pittsburgh television news anchor has sued the channel that employed her for 17 years after she was fired in March over social media comments that were criticized as racially insensitive.

Wendy Bell, who anchored the news on WTAE TV, said she was fired for being white and that her comments would have gone unpunished had she been of another race.

After a March 9 shooting that resulted in six deaths, Bell posted comments on Facebook.

"You needn't be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts. They are young black men, likely in their teens or in their early 20s," Bell said.

"They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before. They've grown up there. They know the police. They've been arrested," she wrote.
