I found recently that my unreleased file of mashups was enormous. So I asked DJ Petrushka to help me pick out 2 discs worth to be my new album. The resulting collection was mighty fine, but I quickly found myself replacing tons of them with spanking new mixes I really, REALLY wanted to release.
Almost all the tracks from my large unreleased file were eventually removed, until only three are left. So, once again, there's a lot of tracks going unreleased from my new collection. They probably won't ever be posted at this point. However, the ones included should be satisfying, & memorable. I used a lot of stuff that's never been used before in a mashup. The title this time is "
Miracles Happen ( 34 mashups ) & there's mirror links a'plenty for both "discs"
( groovytimewithdjuseo.blogspot.com/2016/08/dj-useo-miracles-happen-34-mashups.html )
Lately, word reaches me often of my mashups recieving airplay, & it sure brings a smile to my eyes, I mean mouth. Lol. I mean, I could easily be mountain climbing instead. I'm happy to know what I do in my own small humble way means something to others. Coming up next will be a new Audioboots 80's mashup comp with lots of contributors, a new collection of funny mashups from many mixers, & possibly a long-awaited reggae mashup album from me, & that mad genius, Chocomang.
Also, my twice monthly podcast MASHUP SHOWCASE is now at episode 46. Check out all the posted episodes with world class featured guests like pomDeter, DJ Topcat, & Skibilibop

Lesley Sue Goldstein (May 2, 1946 - February 16, 2015), better known as Lesley Gore, was an American singer, songwriter, actress, and activist. At the age of 16 (in 1963) she recorded the pop hit "It's My Party", and followed it up with other hits including "Judy's Turn to Cry", "You Don't Own Me", and "California Nights".
Randall was first and correct with:
Her life hasn't always been
Sunshine, rainbows, and lollypops, and even though it's her party, she
could cry if she wanted. Leslie Gore is like that.

If I receive a national security letter I will immediately photograph it, post it online everywhere I can, and then make a video of me burning it. I will then await my arrest. If you want to put me in jail then come get me mother fucker.
Watched Helter Skelter on Decades TV Network - it was blacked out in LA when it was on TV back in 1976, and this was my first opportunity to see it in one big lump.
An old pal is a recording engineer, and back in the late 60's, as a favor to a producer, he worked a session with Charlie Manson.
The producer was the previous resident of the house on Cielo Drive where Sharon Tate was murdered.
My pal still has an original tape of Charlie singing.
Only heard it once.
Even 47 years later, the mention of Manson's name makes him get a bit freaky, and he has to be really toasted to talk about it.
But once he starts talking , there are hours of stories.

Longtime "Saturday Night Live" cast member Taran Killam says he "was never given a reason why" he was being let go after six seasons on the NBC program.
Killam and fellow cast member Jay Pharoah won't be back when "SNL" returns this fall for its 42nd season, the network said Monday.
Killam performed several celebrity impressions on the show, including Brad Pitt andDonald Trump - although the Trump role went to "SNL" announcer and former star Darrell Hammond during the past season.
Pharoah was also on the program for six seasons and had the coveted role of impersonating President Barack Obama. He was also known for his send-ups of Kanye West, Jay Z, Shaquille O'Neal and others.

"Game of Thrones" author George RR Martin has revealed he will release a "very special" edition of "A Game of Thrones", to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first book in the "Song Of Ice And Fire" series.
Martin confirmed via his blog that the new edition will include an introduction by the World Famous Nebula Toastmaster John Hodgman and "a truly astonishing amount of artwork" -- a total of 73 black-and-white interior illustrations, and eight spectacular full-color plates.
He added that while some of the art will be drawn from the Ice & Fire calendars, from "The World of Ice and Fire", and from the card and board games and role-playing games, 48 of these pieces are "completely new, never-before-seen artwork". Martin also unveiled two examples of the type of artwork to be featured in the special "A Game of Thrones" edition.
The book will be entitled "A Game of Thrones: The Illustrated Edition" and will be on sale from October 18, 2016. However, no updates on Martin's highly-anticipated sixth book on the series, "Winds of Winter", have emerged of late, with Martin's publisher maintaining that a release date is not yet known.
The Oregon Zoo has released the last batch of its zoo-raised Oregon silverspot butterflies into the wild as it winds up a summer program aimed at boosting the numbers of the once-common yellow-and-black butterfly in coastal habitats.
The zoo has transported nearly 450 butterfly pupae to four sites along the Oregon Coast in the past month. There, the butterflies finish their metamorphosis in "pupae pockets" inside protective mesh, the zoo said in a statement Monday. They flit away when they emerge.
The silverspot was once common in coastal grasslands from northern California to Canada. It is now listed as threatened due under the Endangered Species Act because of the loss of its host plant, the early blue violet. Only five populations of the butterfly remain.
The zoo has been raising Oregon silverspots since 1998 and generally collects female butterflies each year from atop Tillamook County's Mount Hebo. The females are brought to the zoo's conservation lab, where they lay eggs. The resulting caterpillars are kept through the winter and then transported back to the wild once they have spun themselves into pupae to undergo their transformation into butterflies.
Recent drought conditions have caused a dramatic decline in the silverspot population there due to a die-off of the early blue violet plants that the caterpillars feed on.
Japan's emperor expressed concern Monday about fulfilling his duties as he ages, in a public address that was remarkable for its rarity and its suggestion that he would like to abdicate.
"Fortunately I am now in good health. However, when I consider that my fitness level is gradually declining, I am worried that it may become more difficult for me to carry out my duties as the symbol of the state," Akihito, 82, said in the 10-minute recorded speech broadcast on national television.
Japan's post-World War II constitution restricts what the emperor can say as a symbolic monarch with no political power. Akihito repeatedly said he is aware of the constraints, and as expected, avoided explicit mention of abdication, which could have violated those restrictions.
The speech was seen in part as an attempt to explain to the public why he might want to abdicate, and presumably win public understanding when the time comes. Sources leaked the possibility to Japanese media almost four weeks ago, which set the stage for Monday's address.
It was only the second time that Akihito has spoken directly to the Japanese people over television. In March 2011 he urged people to work hand-in-hand to help the victims of a massive earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan.
The wolf pack that taught scientists how wolf packs work may be dead, scientists worry.
Last they knew, the East Fork pack in Alaska's Denali National Park was down to a male, a female, and two pups. But as we first saw reported by The Guardian, a park ecologist told the media that the male was found dead and there's no sign of the rest of the pack at their den.
The last male was killed by hunters. He was the latest in a troubling yearlong trend of about 75% of East Fork wolf deaths being due to hunting and trapping. And it's not just wolves: as many as one in four mammal species are threatened, due largely to hunting and habitat loss.
Overall, biologists think Denali is down to about 50 wolves in a dozen packs. And in the past two years, the park has been actively working to try to increase the frequency of wolf sightings by visitors.
The East Fork pack were wolf celebrities, often greeting visitors entering the park. Sean McGuire at Alaskans for Wildlife told a local radio station they were "probably the most viewed wolf pack in the world's history."
There's some pretty special rock art underneath some parts of a Hawaii beach.
Shifting sands on Hawaii's Waianae coast have revealed petroglyphs that some experts believe date back more than 400 years, according to a statement by Hawaii's Department of Land and Natural Resources.
The petroglyphs, images carved into rock, are considered a rarity, the department said.
A Texas couple stumbled upon the engravings in July while walking along the beach to watch the sunset.
Up to 10 carvings have been discovered along 60 feet of beach. Experts said they think the figures were carved by the Island's aboriginal inhabitants. Hawaii's State Historic Preservation Division and the US Army are working together to document the findings.

Archaeologists are trying to decipher magic spells etched onto tiny rolls of gold and silver that they found alongside skeletons of humans buried almost 2,000 years ago.
"The alphabet is Greek, that much we know. The language is Aramaic - it's a Middle Eastern mystery to us," Miomir Korac, chief archaeologist at the site in eastern Serbia, told Reuters.
The skeletons were found at the foot of a massive coal-fired power station where searches are being carried out before another unit of the electricity plant is built on the site of an ancient Roman city.
Last week, after carefully brushing away soil from the bones, Korac's team found two amulets made of lead that, when opened, were each found to rolls of precious metal - silver and gold - covered in symbols and writing.
They believe the inscriptions are magic spells, taken to the grave to invoke divine powers to perform good or evil.
The news that researchers want to create human-animal chimeras has generated controversy recently and may conjure up ideas about Frankenstein-ish experiments. But chimeras aren't always man-made - and there are a number of examples of human chimeras that already exist.
A chimera is essentially a single organism that's made up of cells from two or more "individuals" - that is, it contains two sets of DNA, with the code to make two separate organisms.
One way chimeras can happen naturally in humans is that a fetus can absorb its twin. This can occur with fraternal twins, if one embryo dies very early in pregnancy and some of its cells are "absorbed" by the other twin. The remaining fetus will have two sets of cells: its own original set, plus the one from its twin.
A person can also be a chimera if he or she undergoes a bone marrow transplant. During such transplants - which can be used, for example, to treat leukemia - a person will have his or her own bone marrow destroyed and replaced with bone marrow from another person. Bone marrow contains stem cells that develop into red blood cells. This means that, for the rest of his or her life, a person with a bone marrow transplant will have blood cells that are genetically identical to those of the donor, and are not genetically the same as the other cells in the recipient's own body.
More commonly, people may exhibit so-called microchimerism - when a small fraction of their cells are from someone else. This can happen when a woman becomes pregnant and a small number of cells from the fetus migrate into her blood and travel to different organs.
Scientists Robert Kruszynski and Girdland Flink carry out tests on samples of the remains of the Piltdown Man, the bogus fossils of a "missing link" between apes and humans that created a scientific sensation in the 1910's in Britain, in the DNA laboratory of the Natural History Museum, London, in an undated picture released by the Natural History Museum.
