M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - June 1st, 2016

Bootleggers Release Literal Mashups

By DJ Useo

The loosely affiliated "Institute Of Bootleggers" ( ) has released their latest mashup collection called "Literal Mashups". The album is variety style blends with a healthy smattering of club tracks.

All the mixers on this project have advanced mixing skills. Many will seem new or unknown to the majority of you, while still retaining the ability to mix like a long standing pro. Most are long standing pros.

Among the fifteen contributors are such distinguished international home producers as DeeM, ToToM, DJ Energy, Vincenzo Caira & Francesco Lupo, & The Homogenic Chaos. The many others are not to be sneezed at, either, & not just because that would be disgusting. lol.

The styles roll from club mashups like Deckmann's "We Are The Left Behinds", to hardcore like ToToM's "Born Free to Self Destruct", to AtoZ's classic rock "You Made It Weird Again ( Not Feelin' Crispy )". Thus, you go from Paris Bohm to Nine Inch Nails to Steely Dan, while also going from Felicity to M.I.A. to Pete Holmes ( ! ) in the space of a disc's time. A sweet journey, indeed.

DJ Surda provides the incredible "Heroes For One Day (Video Edit)" ( Asaf Avidan & The Mojos ( Wankelmut Remix ) vs David Bowie ) as the albums preview video track ( ) . I guarantee once you experience it, you'll want the entire album.

There's mirror links for the collection here ( ) It would be appreciated if you shared the link on your favorite social platform. We need the thrill of knowing you liked it enough to say so, because we sure ain't gonna get any money out of it. Lmao.

Next week, I have one awesome collection chock full of the most well known names in the "scene". It's one of the "biggies" that comes out every year. Come back in seven days for more mashup thrills. - Konrad

'I Come to You Tonight a Broken Man'

Stephen Colbert

While the nation's capitol reeled on Monday from former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci's exit, few took the news harder than Stephen Colbert.

"I come to you tonight a broken man," Colbert told the audience on his "Late Show" Monday evening. "Because just this afternoon I was shocked by this breaking 'nooch.'"

The news, or "nooch," as Colbert called it, was of course the departure of Scaramucci from his White House post after just 10 days on the job.

The CBS host went on to make sure his audience knew just how short Scaramucci's stay in the Trump administration had been.

"The Mooch lasted as communications director for only 10 days! Ten!" he said. "That's not even a whole pay period! His going away party can serve what's left of his welcome cake."

Shaves Head To Show Support

Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin has shaved off her hair for a good reason.

The comedian wanted to show her support for her sister Joyce Griffin's ongoing battle with cancer, so she shaved her entire head. Joyce is currently undergoing chemotherapy, though it is not clear what type of cancer she has been diagnosed with, People reported.

Photos of Griffin sporting a shaved head surfaced on social media after her major hair change. In one Twitter photo, the talk show host and actress poses topless in front of bushes outdoors, smiling as she puts her right hand on her bare head. Another photo shows Griffin revealing her new look to mom Maggie Griffin. The latter covers her mouth in surprise after seeing what the comedian did for her sister Joyce.

This is not the first time that cancer has afflicted a member of the Griffin family. In 2014, Kathy's older brother, Gary Griffin, died at the age of 63. He had been battling stage four esophageal cancer for two years prior to his death. "This AM my brave brother Gary Griffin passed away in palliative care after a brutal struggle w cancer," Griffin wrote on Instagram following his death.

Called White House A 'Dump'


Donald Trump (R-Pendejo) has told members of his New Jersey golf club that he spends so much time away from Washington because the White House is a "real dump."

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the account, which appeared in a lengthy article posted on the website The story on Trump's complicated love for golf also appears in Sports Illustrated magazine.

The story recounts a scene in which Trump was chatting with some club members. Trump told the members he makes such frequent appearances at the property in Bedminster, New Jersey, because: "That White House is a real dump."

Trump has spent nearly every weekend of his presidency visiting various properties he owns and leases, including Bedminster.

Archaeologists Find Large Buried Statue

Angkor Wat

Archaeologists at Cambodia's Angkor Wat temple complex studying the site of a hospital from eight to nine centuries ago say they have found a large statue in their excavations.

The government agency that oversees the complex, the Apsara Authority, said on its website that the 1.9-meter (6-foot, 3-inch) tall, 58-centimeter (23-inch) wide statue was discovered Sunday by its team, working with experts from Singapore's Institute of Southeast Asian Studies. It is one of the largest statues from the era to be unearthed in recent years.

The agency said the statue, believed to be from the 12th or 13 century, is thought to have been a symbolic guardian of the entrance of the hospital. It was found buried 40 centimeters (16 inches) under the ground, and will be put on public exhibition in the museum in the northwestern province of Siem Reap, where Angkor is located.

Angkor was the capital of the Khmer Empire, which flourished from approximately the 9th to 15th centuries. Large numbers of architectural and religious artifacts have been looted from there and sold overseas, while others were buried for safekeeping during a civil war in the 1970s.

Digby's Hullabaloo




The former director of the US Office of Government Ethics said he was "embarrassed" by Donald Trump's (R-Crooked) alleged conflicts of interest and he was concerned that the White House could be seen as a "kleptocracy".

Walter Shaub, who worked at the Office of Government Ethics since 2001, has given a series of candid interviews after he resigned this month about what he describes as the threats to democracy, including the President's attacks on the press and judicial bodies.

Speaking to the Guardian, Mr Shaub described the President's use of his hotels to host diplomats and government business as "free advertising", and "risks people starting to refer to us as a kleptocracy".

During a speech to the National Press Club last week, he said: "We are truly in an ethics crisis right now, and something has got to be done about it."

Mr Shaub, who questioned the President's motivations, left the White House six months before his five-year term was due to finish and became an unlikely star of the resistance movement, even inspiring a fan page on Facebook.

Approval Ratings Fall To All-Time Low


Donald Trump's (R-Fabulist) approval ratings have fallen to an all-time low, according to one of his favourite pollsters, Rasmussen Reports.

The US leader's score has now fallen to below 40 per cent for the first time, a 23-point decrease since he took office.

It comes even though the poll has traditionally been generous to the President, who has in the past picked out Rasmussen's findings to say he was doing better than his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Other mainstream polls also have the President performing at his worst-ever level in the ratings



Environmental Protection Laws Won't Apply


Apple supplier Foxconn has in recent years been accused of poisoning waterways near its facilities in China. Now Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is not only proposing to give the company a $3 billion taxpayer subsidy, his administration has also quietly slipped language into a bill that would exempt the Taiwanese conglomerate from state environmental protection laws.

Walker (R-Sock Puppet), Donald Trump (R-Corrupt) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Koch Sucker) have in recent days touted Foxconn's announcement that it will open a new manufacturing plant in Ryan's Southwest Wisconsin congressional district. None of them, however, mentioned that the legislation providing the taxpayer subsidies included blanket waivers from Wisconsin's environmental statutes.

Under those laws, companies are prohibited from discharging materials or otherwise polluting wetlands without a specific permit to do so. Under the bill that Walker has put forward, companies within the new "economics and information technology manufacturing zone" will be allowed to discharge material into non-federal wetlands if it relates to the construction or operation of a manufacturing facility. Walker has called a special session that will discuss his bill tomorrow.

Another section of the bill outlines how existing Wisconsin law requires companies to obtain a permit to disturb or transform nearby waterways. According to the official analysis of the bill by analysts in the Republican-controlled legislature, the new legislation will allow Walker's administration to waive those permitting requirements "if they relate to the construction, access, or operation of a new manufacturing facility" in the zone where Foxconn is planning to build its facility.

A separate section of the bill exempts new energy utilities built inside the Foxconn development zone from facing regulatory oversight by the state's Public Service Commission. Those provisions also exempt regulation of the building and relocation of high-voltage transmission lines, according to state legislative analysts.

Cheaper Fleet

Air Force One

Sitting in the dry and hot Mojave Desert are two jets that may help Donald Trump (R-Buffoon) in his quest to show the nation that he's really good at making deals.

The two jets that may become the next iconic Air Force One fleet have been sitting in the desert since earlier this year, after a deal between the jet's manufacturer Boeing and a Russian airline fell through. The dry air in Mojave makes the area ideal for storing planes, as the air won't be corrosive. The area, in general, is a storage place for older planes and planes that may one day be flown again.

The planes were originally ordered by Russian airline Transaero in 2013. The company was the largest Russian airline until two years later, when it went bankrupt. Unfortunately for Boeing - but apparently fortunately for US taxpayers and Mr Trump - two of the four ordered jets had been made when those bankruptcy papers were sent through.

Mr Trump, soon after "winning" the 2016 election, proclaimed that he thought the cost of a new Air Force One fleet was simply too much for the taxpayer to bear. He pledged to negotiate a better deal, and to drive costs down. Should the US Air Force negotiate a bargain on the abandoned aircraft sitting int he Mojave, his administration may have done just as he pledged.

Still, the deal isn't finished yet. The Air Force is expected to announce the purchase of the two 747-8 jets as soon as this week, but a spokeswoman didn't confirm the details.

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?
