A Bootleg Tribute For George Michaels Birthday

By Some Human

I know this awesome group of audio mixers called the Crumplbangers. Each of them makes the most creative bootleg mixes you'll ever hear. Here's a video of some children trying to process a few of the best tracks. " Kids React To Crumplbangers"
( )

If you read this column any, you'll recall that the Crumplbangers staged a series of online 3-day Deejay festivals called "Crumplstock". Here's a past article on one of them
( )

So, to get to the point, one of the most beloved Crumplbangers, MsMiep
( ) totally coordinated a Crumplbanger tribute to the dearly departed George Michael. It came out a couple days ago, on the anniversary of George's birthday. Here's what DJ DAW-GUN has to say on the subject -

"What the heck is a Crumplbanger?! So a bunch of my mashup peeps get together every now and then and make a tribute album - with a twist. The tracks ride that line where they're good but they're also bad and your brain can't decide if it should feel good hating them or bad liking them. I'm delighted to be a part of the newest collection. For your enjoyment or torture, I present Careless Crumpl
( )

The zip is gratis, & also quite the hoot. I even got a mix on there with George Singing over the Foo Fighters.

You know how rare novelty records can be, so grab it now!

Tierney Sneed: 5 Points On The Brutal CBO Score Senate Republicans Must Overcome (TPM)
The CBO score released Monday on the Senate health care bill rained down what must have been the worst nightmare-or close to it-for the GOP senators squeamish about the bill: blockbuster coverage losses just about as bad as the House version's, Medicaid provisions that kick off even more people from the program than the House bill and average premium reductions that come at the cost of making insurance inaccessible for many low income people.

And within that population, three people have been arrested for activities related to terrorism. None of them were close to executing an attack inside the U.S., and two of the men were caught trying to leave the country to join terrorist groups overseas.

George Lucas Museum

Los Angeles

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles City Council put its stamp of approval on the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, approving plans for the $1.5 billion museum by a unanimous vote.

In January, George Lucas announced that he had selected Los Angeles over his hometown of San Francisco as the location for the museum, which was a coup for L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and local elected officials. Construction of the museum, which is expected to take three years, will result in thousands of construction jobs and an estimated 1,000 permanent positions. The museum also comes with an endowment of at least $400 million. Previous proposals to locate the museum in San Francisco, and then later in Chicago, both failed. Support for the museum by the city council comes as no surprise, but it allows for the next phase of construction to begin.

The groundbreaking for the museum, which will be built at Exposition Park near the University of Southern California - Lucas' alma mater - is scheduled to start later this year.

The five-story museum, which was designed by Chinese architect Ma Yansong, will span across seven acres and will be organized into three verticals: the history of narrative art, digital art and the art of cinema. The permanent collection includes works by David Hockney and Norman Rockwell, and will include a range of one-of-a-kind ephemera including Star Wars memorabilia and illustrations from children's books.

According to reports, Lucas and his wife, Mellody Hobson, were not only present at the city council meeting Tuesday but were met with applause. Hobson assured the council that this was not "a vanity project," while Lucas stressed the importance of this type of art. "This kind of art is very important, and it's especially important to adolescents," he said, according to a report in CurbedLA.

Reporter Unloads At Briefing

White House

Donald Trump's (R-Corrupt) ongoing battle with the media boiled over during the White House press briefing on Tuesday when a reporter tore into Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R-Spokesliar), the deputy press secretary, for complaining about the use of "unnamed sources" and "the constant barrage of fake news" aimed at the administration.

At the briefing - the first on camera in more than a week - Sanders was addressing a question about the president's tweeted response to the resignations of three CNN journalists over a retracted report on Russia when she was interrupted by Brian Karem, a reporter from the Sentinel Newspapers.

"If any one of us doesn't get it right, the audience has the opportunity to turn the channel or not read us," Karem said, standing near the back of the briefing room. "You have been elected to serve four years at least - there's no option other than that."

"We're in here asking you questions," Karem continued. "You're here to provide the answers and what you just did is inflammatory to people all over the country who look at it and say, 'See, once again, the president's right, and everybody else out here is fake media.' And everybody in this room is trying to do their job."

"I disagree completely," Sanders shot back. "I think if anything's been inflamed, it's often the dishonesty that takes in the news media. And I think it's outrageous for you to accuse me of inflaming a story when I was simply trying to respond to his question."

Vandals Obliterate Marker In Mississippi

Emmett Till

A civil rights historical marker in Mississippi has been vandalized, obliterating information about black teenager Emmett Till, who was kidnapped and lynched in 1955.

The slaying galvanized the civil rights movement when Till's mother, Mamie Till Mobley, had an open-casket funeral in Chicago to show how her 14-year-old son had been brutalized while he was visiting the Mississippi Delta.

The sign was erected in 2011 for the Mississippi Freedom Trail, a series of state-funded markers at significant civil rights sites.

The damaged sign is outside the long-closed Bryant's Grocery & Meat Market, where a 21-year-old white shopkeeper, Carolyn Bryant, said Till whistled at her in August 1955. The teenager was kidnapped, tortured and killed because of her accusation. An all-white jury acquitted Bryant's husband, Roy Bryant, and his half brother, J.W. Milam, in the killing, but the two men later confessed in a paid interview with Look magazine.

A separate Till marker, near the site where his body was pulled from the Tallahatchie River several miles away, has been repeatedly shot. It was erected by a private group, and money has been raised to replace it.

Reports Of Side Effects Increasing


Reports of adverse events associated with cosmetics and personal care products sold in the U.S. more than doubled last year, due in large part to complaints about WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioners, a new study suggests.

Researchers examined data on side effects reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from 2004 to 2016 for products like makeup, sunscreen, tattoos, hair color, perfume, shaving creams and baby care items. Overall, there were a total of 5,144 adverse events, with an average of 396 a year, researchers report in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Side effect reports climbed 78 percent to 706 in 2015, followed by a 300 percent surge to 1,591 adverse events last year, largely driven by complaints about hair care products and WEN products in particular, the study found.

"Adverse events to cosmetics matter to patients mostly because nearly everyone uses a cosmetic or personal care product every single day - this includes newborns, infants and pregnant women," said senior study author Dr. Shuai Xu, a dermatology researcher at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.

For the study, Xu and colleagues examined adverse events data in the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition's Adverse Event Reporting System (CFSAN), a repository made publicly available in 2016. It includes voluntary reports of side effects submitted by consumers and health care professionals.



Digby's Hullabaloo


"Pop-Up" Court For Rainbow Family Gathering


The U.S. government has sent federal prosecutors to a "pop-up" court in eastern Oregon to process citations against people attending a massive counter-culture peace gathering on public land that could draw up to 20,000 people.

Several assistant U.S. attorneys are staffing a make-shift office within walking distance of the festival in Malheur National Forest, said Kevin Sonoff, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office for Oregon.

Those who don't want to negotiate a deal with prosecutors can appear before a federal judge by satellite, he said.

Sonoff declined to say how prosecutors will handle marijuana use at the event except to say they law enforcement is taking a "measured approach."

Voters in Oregon legalized recreational marijuana in 2014 but it remains illegal under federal law. The gathering takes place on federal forest land in Grant County, a remote area with just 7,500 people.

Effects On Drivers


Two U.S. studies on the effects of marijuana on drivers in states where it is allowed for recreational use came to different conclusions about whether it increases risks behind the wheel.

A study by the American Journal of Public Health published on Thursday looked at motor vehicle fatalities and found no significant increase in Colorado and Washington State, where recreational marijuana use is legal, compared with eight states where it is not legal that have similar populations, vehicle ownership, and traffic laws. Alabama, Kentucky and Texas were among the states in the comparison group.

"Our study focused on deaths and actually found what we expected going into this," Jason Aydelotte, lead author of the study said in a telephone interview. Aydelotte is a trauma surgeon at Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas at Austin.

In another study published on Wednesday, the Highway Loss Data Institute analyzed the frequency of car insurance collision claims in Washington, Colorado and Oregon, where recreational marijuana is also permitted.

It found a 3 percent increase in collision claims in those states compared with Wyoming, Idaho and Nevada, where it is not legal.



Says France Will Not Recognise Crimea 'Annexation'

Emmanuel Macron

President Emmanuel Macron said Monday France refuses to recognise Russia's "annexation" of the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea.

Speaking after talks with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Paris, Macron said: "France is committed to Ukraine's sovereignty with its recognised borders."

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday visited Crimea, which Moscow annexed in 2014, in a trip that Kiev condemned as a violation of its sovereignty.

Western powers accuse Russia of failing to honour its commitments under the Minsk accords framework for ending the violence between government forces and Kremlin-backed rebels in Ukraine's east.

EU leaders agreed last week to extend stringent economic sanctions against Russia for another six months, saying Moscow had failed to meet its commitments on the ceasefire in Ukraine.

Fighter Takes To The Skies Over Japan


Salvaged from the Papua New Guinean jungle, a restored World War II Japanese Zero fighter has taken to the skies over the land that gave birth to the once-feared warplane.

The aircraft -- emblazoned with tell-tale rising sun symbols -- is one of just a few airworthy Zero fighters left in the world, nearly eight decades after they struck fear into the hearts of Allied pilots.

The plane flew near Tokyo this month, watched by businessman and aviation buff Masahide Ishizuka who bought the plane for 350 million yen ($3.1 million) in 2008.

The badly damaged aircraft was originally found in the 1970s in dense jungle where it had crashed decades earlier. It later ended up in the United States -- Japan's chief World War II adversary.

Developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Zero planes took part in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, while "kamikaze" suicide pilots crashed them into US ships in the later stages of the war.

In Memory

Michael Nyqvist

Swedish actor Michael Nyqvist, best known for a leading role in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" Swedish film series, died in Sweden on Tuesday after a year-long battle with lung cancer, his representative said. He was 56.

Nyqvist "passed away quietly surrounded by family" in Stockholm, his spokeswoman Alissa Goodman said in an emailed statement that called him "one of Sweden's most respected and accomplished actors."

Nyqvist rose to prominence as the complex investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist in film adaptations of Swedish author Stieg Larsson's gritty "Millennium" novel series that spawned "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" franchise.

More recently, he played menacing villains in Hollywood action films "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" and "John Wick."

Nyqvist made his debut as an author in 2010 with an autobiographical memoir "Just After Dreaming," which detailed his quest to find his biological parents three decades after he was adopted as a baby.
