M Is FOR MASHUP - June 22nd, 2022

PRIDE TIME II With Eternal Khaos

DJ Useo

     The well known bootlegger Eternal Khaos released the mashup album “PRIDE TIME” ( ) to large acclaim. Now, ETK returns with a fantastic sequel ( ) . As he’s said before in his own words, - "This album is a compilation of works I made for a while and with a theme which is songs focusing on the LGBTQ+ community.”

     Everyone makes huge contributions to not only mashups, but also our complete human society, including LGBTQ+ people. We’re all together in life, despite some notable denials. ETK’s comp pairs everyone up together into wonderful mashups that stir the soul.

     ETK says of the release - “It's been two years since I released Pride Time so why not bring a sequel? Unlike the predecessor, this one is basically a whole new album meaning that the following 18 tracks are all previously unreleased and features artists like David Bowie, Madonna, Lady Gaga, The Psychedelic Furs, UltraVox, RuPaul and many others and it's full of surprises so check it out and have yourself a awesome pride month this year.”

     “Ever since I dropped the first Pride Time compilation, I thought about starting up a sequel and see where it goes from there so while I took my time, I also have changing ideas and it related to what happens to me in real life but in a positive manner (one of which is that I got married shortly a year after the first compilation's release).

     Flashing forward to now and I didn't expect the second one to be as better as the first. As I am proud of the first one, I became even prouder of this since there are night and day differences being that while the first is essentially a compilation, this one is more of a brand new album.

     Whether it's making Tiffany going a bit country-like or imagining Love Shack as a DnB/Breakbeat jam or even give Alcazar's signature tune a early 90s alternative rock makeover, the possibilties are endless and I'm just providing mine even in ways nobody saw coming.

     As a bisexual and queer person myself, I'm glad with whatever kind of music I'm listening to inspire me to realise this compilation and I do hope any cut I made for this (or previous) edition of Pride Time is for everyone regardless of their gender and sexuality. I do also hope I get around to the third one someday but for now, it's time to dance and celebrate this June so happy Pride Month y'all.”

      Grab the comp from here at “name your price” ( ) - It’s 100% Eternal Khaos & sure to please you, as the best mashups do. Big thanks to ETK for the joy this brings.

Have the day of good - DJ Konrad Useo

Husbands and Wives

• When Constance Samwell was secretly engaged to Frank Benson, she sometimes heard two actresses discussing in the dressing room which of them would marry him. Sometimes, one of the actresses would say that Mr. Benson had walked her home and stayed with her until late — but Ms. Samwell knew that Mr. Benson had walked her home that particular night and stayed with her until late. (Later, Constance and Frank were married.)

• Jane Stevenson learned that her police officer husband was a transvestite on their wedding night. He came out of the bathroom wearing a white embroidered peignoir that was prettier than what she was wearing. On his face was an imploring look that said, “Please understand me.” She put her arms around him, and she said, “I love you.” He said, “I can’t help this.” She replied, “You don’t have to explain. I love you. Tonight you don’t have to explain. I accept it.”

• In his old age, Moe Howard of Three Stooges fame guested on TV’s Mike Douglas Show. At one point, Mr. Douglas asked Moe if he had “any unfulfilled ambitions.” Moe got a gleam in his eye, grabbed a pie (when you’re a Stooge, one is always handy), charged straight into the audience, and hit his wife smack in the face with the pie. His wife, Helen, took it well, saying, “Moe’s been rehearsing for that all his life. I’m glad he finally got it out of his system.”

• In the 16th century, Irishwoman Elizabeth Fitzgerald was surrounded by enemies who told her that they had captured her husband and would hang him unless she surrendered her castle immediately. Standing on the battlements of her castle, Ms. Fitzgerald shouted, “Mark these words — they may serve your own wives on some occasion. I’ll keep my castle; for Elizabeth Fitzgerald may get another husband, but Elizabeth Fitzgerald may never get another castle.”

• Henny Youngman’s most famous joke was written by accident. One day, he was preparing for a stint on the Kate Smith radio show, when his wife and some of her friends came backstage to visit him. Unfortunately, because of their talking, Mr. Youngman wasn’t able to concentrate on his preparation, so he decided to have someone take his wife and her friends to sit in the audience. Finding a stagehand, he told him, “Take my wife — please!

• Israel Zangwill married a non-Jew in 1901, upsetting many Jews. Shortly after his marriage, he spoke before a large Jewish audience. Worried about how his wife would be treated, he said to the audience, “Fellow Jews, I trust you will be courteous to Mrs. Zangwill, and that you will not do or say anything that might offend her. While I may deserve censure for marrying a Gentile, Mrs. Zangwill deserves nothing but praise — she married a Jew.”

• Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnets from the Portuguese were poems intended to be read only by her husband, Robert Browning, but because of their high quality, he insisted that they be published. The sonnets were not translated from Portuguese. Instead, the poems received this particular title because Mr. Browning called his wife, who had a dark complexion, “my little Portuguese.”

• When African-American comedian Dick Gregory became a stand-up comedian, he knew that eventually someone in the audience would call him a n*gger, so he practiced controlling his reaction by having his wife yell “n*gger” at him at home. When it finally happened in a nightclub, Mr. Gregory had his response ready: “You hear what that guy just called me? Roy Rogers’ horse. He called me Trigger.”

• Mark Twain liked to visit neighbors informally — without wearing a collar or tie. This upset his wife, Livy, so Mr. Twain wrapped up a package which he sent to his neighbors along with this note: “A little while ago, I visited you for about half an hour minus my collar and tie. The missing articles are enclosed. Will you kindly gaze at them for 30 minutes and then return them to me?”

• Anne Sexton once wrote a volume of poetry titled Love Poems. One poem was intended to be titled “Twenty-One Days Without You” because her career required her to spend that amount of time away from her husband. However, the title had to be changed to “Eighteen Days Without You” after her husband said to her, “I can’t stand it any longer; you haven’t been with me for days.”

Trivia Question from Yesterday

"Mama Will Bark", a novelty song recorded in 1951 and produced by Mitch Miller, is a duet between buxom TV hostess Dagmar and what well-known singer?

       Frank Sinatra                                                      Source

"Mama Will Bark" is a novelty song written by Dick Manning and recorded as a duet between Frank Sinatra and Dagmar in 1951.

When buxom hostess Dagmar appeared on Sinatra's CBS-TV show on April 7, 1951, Columbia Records A&R head Mitch Miller became intrigued by the comic chemistry he perceived between the unlikely duo. With that in mind, songwriter Dick Manning (who would later compose such hits as "Fascination") penned "Mama Will Bark", which featured off-key talking/singing by Dagmar and sound effects of dogs barking. Miller produced the session on May 10, 1951, and the song was released the following month.

"Mama Will Bark" is commonly cited as an emblematic low point in Sinatra's troubled later years at Columbia. Many Sinatra fans call it his worst recording ever, and place the blame for it squarely on the head of Mitch Miller. In Will Friedwald's book Sinatra! The Song is You, Miller insisted that "nobody brings Sinatra in the studio [to do something] that he doesn't want to do. Then, he had the right to okay its release." Sinatra himself later said of the song: "The only good it did me was with the dogs." Nonetheless, the single (which did not receive an album release) was a hit, nearly reaching the Top 20 on the Billboard singles chart, peaking at #21. Many DJs "flipped over" the record in favor of the B-side, "I'm a Fool to Want You" (which reached #14 on the Billboard charts).        Source

Virginia Ruth "Jennie" Lewis (née Egnor, November 29, 1921 – October 9, 2001), known professionally as Dagmar, was an American actress, model, and television personality. In the 1950s, she became one of the first major female stars of television, receiving much press coverage.

In 1950s auto design, the slang term Dagmar bumper emerged to describe dual pointed chrome projections on the front ends of Cadillacs, Buicks, Packards, and other U.S. automobiles, an allusion to the actress's physique and trademark attire.        Source

The Sideshow - by Avedon Carol



Dmitry Muratov

The Nobel Peace Prize auctioned off by Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov to raise money for Ukrainian child refugees sold Monday night for $103.5 million, shattering the old record for a Nobel.

A spokesperson for Heritage Auctions, which handled the sale, could not confirm the identity of the buyer but said the winning bid was made by proxy. The $103.5 million sale translates to $100 million Swiss francs, hinting that the buyer is from overseas.

“I was hoping that there was going to be an enormous amount of solidarity, but I was not expecting this to be such a huge amount,” Muratov said in an interview after bidding in the nearly 3-week auction ended on World Refugee Day.

Previously, the most ever paid for a Nobel Prize medal was $4.76 million in 2014, when James Watson, whose co-discovery of the structure of DNA earned him a Nobel Prize in 1962, sold his. In 2013, the family of his co-recipient, Francis Crick, received $2.27 million in bidding also run by Heritage Auctions.

“First-Degree Puppetry”

Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert addressed the arrest of several of his Late Show staffers and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, joking that it was “first-degree puppetry” and calling out Fox News for claiming that it was an “insurrection”.

It comes after seven people, including Robert Smigel, who is known for being the creator, puppeteer and voice of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, who were filming a segment for the CBS late-night show were arrested Thursday night in the Longworth House Office Building by U.S. Capitol Police.

Colbert said, “Thursday evening, after they’d finished their interviews, [my staff] were doing some last-minute puppetry and jokey make-em-ups in a hallway, when Triumph and my folks were approached and detained by Capitol Police, which actually is not surprising. The Capitol Police are much more cautious than they were 18 months ago and for a very good reason. If you don’t know what that reason is I know what news network you watch.”

“The Capitol police were just doing their job, my staff was just doing their job, everyone was very professional, everyone was very calm. My staffers were detained, processed and released. A very unpleasant experience for my staff,” he added.

After joking that it was all Conan O’Brien’s fault – Triumph started as a bit on Late Night with Conan O’Brien – Colbert added, “It’s predictable why these TV talkers are talking like this. They want to talk about something other than the January 6 hearings, the actual seditionist insurrection that led to the deaths of multiple people and the injury of over 140 police officers. But drawing any equivalency between a rioter storming the Capitol to prevent the counting of electoral ballots and a cigar chomping toy dog is a shameful and grotesque insult to the memory of everyone who died and obscenely trivializes the service and the courage the Capitol police showed on that terrible day. But who knows? Maybe there was a vast conspiracy to overthrow the government of the U.S. with a rubber rottweiler.”

Duke Ellington School of the Arts

Dave Chappelle

Dave Chappelle has revealed that he’s decided against having the theater at his former high school named after him after plans for him to become the venue’s eponym were originally put in place.

The standup comedian made his opinion on the matter public Monday night while he was visiting Washington, D.C. for a dedication ceremony of the venue at Duke Ellington School of the Arts, his alma mater. The Washington Post first reported the story.

While Chappelle reaffirmed that he believed criticisms against him weren’t productive, he also stated that he didn’t want his name to be on the theater if that would distract students.

Instead of the student theater bearing his name, the space will instead be called the Theater for Artistic Freedom and Expression.

Digby's Hullabaloo


Prove ‘Unfitness’

Jan. 6 Hearings

Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andy McCarthy, commenting on the latest revelations from the Jan. 6 Committee hearings Tuesday, told fellow Fox News analysts Jonathan Turley, John Roberts and Anita Vogel that Donald Trump the loser’s pressuring officials to reject the official ballots for the 2020 presidential election shows his “unfitness,” and that the former president may be “guilty of a crime.”

He added that there is “no defending what (the previous) President Trump did” on Jan. 6, 2021. “If you were a defense lawyer, if you were someone with a different perspective than the anti-Trump perspective that’s carried by the committee, I don’t think there’s any defending what (the previous) President Trump did,” he said. “The most you could do would be to try to put it in some kind of a mitigating context.”

McCarthy, who served as Chief Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York, also wrote in his Tuesday column for the National Review that it is “unnecessary [for the committee] to demonstrate either that Trump a conman is unfit for the presidency or that he may be guilty of a crime.” He states that the committee has successfully shown that Trump a grifter is “unfit for office” and that “it may even be showing that he obstructed Congress or … conspired to defraud the United States.”

However, McCarthy differs from the committee in believing the coup attempt was never “plausible” and that “the system did work” in preventing the election being overturned.

Jan. 6 Hearings



'Deputy Gang'


Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva was transitioning into office late in 2018 when then-Capt. Matthew Burson was overseeing a high-profile criminal investigation into an alleged assault involving East L.A. deputies at a station party.

At the time, Burson said he was given instructions on behalf of the incoming sheriff on how to handle the case: Investigators, he was told, should avoid questions about the Banditos, the gang-like group of deputies whose members were accused of instigating the fight.

"I assumed there was a valid reason for it, and followed orders," Burson said in a sworn declaration filed in court Tuesday. "I did not at that time suspect any ulterior motives, including a cover-up."

It corroborates testimony presented in May at a Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission hearing on "deputy gangs." It also highlights other failures by the Sheriff's Department to properly crack down on the groups.




Visitor Center


A visitor center dedicated to telling the story of LGBTQ rights movement will open next door to the Stonewall Inn, according to an announcement Tuesday by the nonprofit that will manage the center in partnership with the National Park Service.

The groundbreaking for the Stonewall National Monument Visitor Center in New York City’s Greenwich Village neighborhood will take place Friday, with the center expected to open in summer 2024, said Ann Marie Gothard, board president of Pride Live, an LGBTQ advocacy organization.

The Stonewall National Monument became the first U.S. national monument dedicated to LGBTQ history when it was dedicated in 2016 across the street from the Stonewall Inn, where patrons fought back against a police raid on June 28, 1969, and helped spark the contemporary LGBTQ rights movement.

The 7.7-acre monument includes the park known Christopher Park, across from the Stonewall, but does not include the Stonewall itself, which is still a bar. The visitor center will be housed in the storefront adjoining the Stonewall, which was part of the bar in 1969.




Claudia Sanders Dinner House

Shelbyville, Kentucky

A restaurant created by KFC founder Harland Sanders for his wife decades ago is for sale.

Claudia Sanders Dinner House in Shelbyville, Kentucky, hit the market this week, news outlets reported, citing a statement from the listing agents describing the nearly 25,000-square-foot restaurant and banquet hall.

The sale of the 3-acre property is being handled by Six Degrees Real Estate and includes the trademark and likeness of the Claudia Sanders name as well as memorabilia from the Sanders family. Also included is a 5,000-square-foot residence where Harland and Claudia Sanders lived for more than 20 years.

The Claudia Sanders Dinner House opened in 1959 and also served as the first KFC headquarters, but was sold to a local couple years ago.

The listing does not include a sale price. Listing agent Morgan Hancock said that potential buyers will have to sign a non-disclosure agreement and show proof of at least $5 million cash on hand.
