M Is FOR MASHUP - July 8th, 2015

Kopimi Radio Does Useo's Birthday!

By DJ Useo





Mazanga Von Badman broadcasts twice weekly on Kopimi Radio, bringing his listeners finest kind mashups, & whatever else he damn well feels like. I heard him broadcast for three hours last Sunday, & he ruled the airwaves. The audience was down with the fm signal, with the online feed pleasing tons of folk. ( as evidenced by the twitter, & Facebook reactions )

















As I streamed a strong signal over my iTunes app, I heard many an incredible blend by many a talented bootlegger. Mazanga played lots of great tracks that I knew, with representation of talent from across the mashup spectrum. I heard tunes from DJ's From Mars, The Fabulous Beatmashers, DJ Schmolli, & many other niche mixers like DJ Topcat, AtoZ, & even me. I had no problem staying for the full 3 hour show. I think it was meant to be 2 hours, but the energy was flowing, & Mazanga just kept spinning.


















Some extra icing for this all ready tasty mashup cake is that Mazanga will be playing an incredible 4 hour set of only DJ Useo mashups for my birthday on July 12th! This gives you plenty of time to schedule the show into your Sunday routine. It'll sure spice up your day, no doubt! I got asked by Mazanga to help with track selection, so I selected 3 & 1/2 hours of my fave tracks by me, then whittled them down to 3 hours. DJ Petrushka took it from there & generously chopped off another hour. That brought it down to 2 hours, the amount I expected the show to be.


















But, now, in a fit of enthusiasm, Mazanga is going to go for 4 hours of Birthday Useo celebration. I hope y'all choose to listen in. It's a great way to beat the heat.

Trivia Question from Yesterday


Lard is the fat of what animal?


      Pig                                                      Source


Lard is pig fat in both its rendered and unrendered forms. Lard was commonly used in many cuisines as a cooking fat or shortening, or as a spread similar to butter. Its use in contemporary cuisine has diminished, but many contemporary cooks and bakers still favor it over other fats for select uses. The culinary qualities of lard vary somewhat depending on the part of the pig from which the fat was taken and how the lard was processed.        Source






Alan J was first, and correct, with:
   Pig fat.

Signs New 'Simpsons' Deal

Harry Shearer

Harry Shearer isn't going anywhere after all: The longterm "Simpsons" voice talent has inked a new deal with the Fox animated comedy, Fox said on Tuesday.

The deal is the same one as the rest of his fellow voice cast previously signed: a two-year agreement with an option for another two seasons.

The voice behind Mr. Burns, among many others, claimed he was walking away from the show in May. At the time, Shearer had supposedly passed on the same deal, and the roles slated to be recast.

Shearer had previously claimed that the dispute wasn't over money. But executive producer Al Jean countered that they always let Shearer have "freedom" for other projects - which was the actor's provided reason for not re-upping.

US To Cut 40,000 Soldiers

Army

The US Army is to cut 40,000 soldiers from its ranks over the next two years at home and abroad, a defense official said, in a move that will raise doubts about its ability to fight wars.

Under the cost-cutting plan, the Army will be down to 450,000 soldiers at the end of the 2017 budget year, even though in 2013 it argued in budgetary documents that going below 450,000 troops might mean it could not win a war, USA Today said.

By comparison, the Army swelled to 570,000 men and women during the peak of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, the newspaper said.

Some 17,000 civilians working for the Army will also be laid off, the official told AFP, confirming the USA Today report.

Public Finally Gets Pathway To Beach

The 'Bu

With a bright blue sign that reads "Beach Access" on an open gate replacing what used to be private property, the public now has access to Malibu's so-called "Billionaires' Beach."

The California Coastal Commission officially opened a public path to Carbon Beach on Tuesday, allowing the not-so-rich-and-famous to experience the sandy backyards of oceanside mega-mansions.

State law guarantees the public beach access up to the mean high tide line. But in areas like Malibu, many wealthy and influential residents have taken extensive measures to keep beachgoers out of their sandy backyards.

The lengthy legal quarrel over this access way dates back to the 1980s. Carbon Beach residents Lisette and Norman Ackerberg were required to provide a public path beside their house. Instead, they put up various impediments, including a 9-foot-high wall, large boulders and a tennis court to resist building an easement.

The new pathway is the third to the 1 1/2-mile beach. The commission plans to open at least 18 additional paths throughout Malibu.

Fear Stereotyping

'Vampires'

It is not easy being a vampire, and even harder to come out of the coffin to a physician or therapist for fear they will misinterpret the habit of ingesting the blood of willing donors or succumb to stereotyping, a study finds.

Research led by D.J. Williams, director of social work at Idaho State University, indicated that people who identify themselves as "real" vampires - that is, needing others' blood to gain energy - would not disclose their practices to those in the helping professions and risk reactions like ridicule, disgust and possible diagnosis of a mental illness.

The paper, published in the latest issue of Critical Social Work, a peer-reviewed journal based in Canada, found that authentic vampires as opposed to "lifestyle" vampires - black-clad figures with phony fangs - might be stereotyped by clinicians whose fields discourage biases.

Williams, who has studied self-identified vampires for nearly a decade, finds they come from every walk of life and profession, including doctors, attorneys and candlestick makers.

Moralizing Was His Undoing

Cosby

For decades, Bill Cosby cast himself as America's dad and then as America's granddad, a moralist with tough talk for young people about acting responsibly. It was that image that proved to be his undoing.

The judge who unsealed documents on Monday revealing Cosby's 2005 admission that he obtained quaaludes to give to young women before sex cited the comedian's public moralizing in deciding to release the testimony.

U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno in Philadelphia ruled: "The stark contrast between Bill Cosby, the public moralist, and Bill Cosby, the subject of serious allegations concerning improper (and perhaps criminal) conduct, is a matter to which the AP - and by extension the public - has a significant interest."

Cosby's moralizing also triggered the most recent round of allegations by more than two dozen women who say he assaulted them. Last October, 31-year-old comedian Hannibal Buress set off the storm when he noted the contrast between Cosby's image and the accusations.

"He gets on TV, 'Pull your pants up, black people. I was on TV in the '80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!'" Buress said. "Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches."

Judge Refuses To Dismiss Murder Case

Marion "Suge" Knight

A judge ruled Tuesday that Marion "Suge" Knight should stand trial on murder charges even though a key witness - one of the men he's accused of running over - refused to identify him in court.

Cle "Bone" Sloan told detectives it was Knight who ran over him and another man outside a Compton burger stand in January, killing the other man and seriously injuring Sloan. But when Sloan testified about the incident at Knight's preliminary hearing in April, he refused to say Knight ran him over.

Knight's attorney Thomas Mesereau said the judge should reject Sloan's testimony because his changing story showed he isn't credible.

But Superior Court Judge Stephen A. Marcus said he could not evaluate the credibility of witnesses at a preliminary hearing. The judge noted, "He doesn't say that it's not him."

He also cited evidence that Sloan and Knight had bad blood between them for years, calling the fight that led to the fatal confrontation part of an ongoing "soap opera" between the men.

Suspending Relationship With Jared

Subway

Subway sandwich chain says it's suspending its relationship with Jared Fogle due an investigation involving the chain's spokesman.

The statement from the company says Fogle continues to cooperate with authorities and that he expects "no actions to be forthcoming." It said both sides agreed suspending the relationship was "the appropriate step to take."

The statement comes after Subway removed pages referencing Fogle from its website. Fogle's home had been raided earlier Tuesday by federal and state authorities.

Fogle became a Subway spokesman after losing 245 pounds by regularly eating Subway sandwiches.

Ultra-Orthodoxy

Israel

Israel's minister for religious affairs criticized Reform Judaism on Tuesday, saying he doesn't consider members of the denomination to be Jews.

David Azoulay of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party told Israel's Army Radio Tuesday that these are "Jews who lost their way" and he hoped they would "return to the midst of Judaism according to Jewish law."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later issued a statement saying he rejects the minister's "hurtful remarks about reform Judaism which do not reflect the position of the government."

The comments by the religious affairs minister followed an Israeli Cabinet decision to reverse an initiative aimed at easing the conversion process to Judaism. It marked a blow to the previous government's attempts to break the ultra-Orthodox monopoly in Israel and make Judaism more inclusive.

The more liberal Reform and Conservative streams of Judaism make up the largest denominations in the United States but they are mostly marginal in Israel, where religious life is dominated by a strict ultra-Orthodox establishment.

Thousands Of Birds Abandon Eggs, Nests

Seahorse Key

The din created by thousands of nesting birds is usually the first thing you notice about Seahorse Key, a 150-acre mangrove-covered dune off Florida's Gulf Coast.

But in May, the key fell eerily quiet all at once.

Thousands of little blue herons, roseate spoonbills, snowy egrets, pelicans and other chattering birds were gone. Nests sat empty in trees; eggs broken and scattered on the muddy ground.

"It's a dead zone now," said Vic Doig, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist. "This is where the largest bird colony on the Gulf Coast of Florida used to be."

Doig said some of the Seahorse birds seem to have moved to a nearby island, but they're just a fraction of the tens of thousands of birds that would normally be nesting on the key right now.

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.
