M Is FOR MASHUP - September 6th, 2017

Useo Drops More Strange Mashups

By DJ Useo

Yup, it's the ninth time I've put together an album's worth of my strangest mashups. The "Frikkenfrack" series was named such by DJ Petrushka, who really didn't care for my weird mixes. That position evolved over the ensuing years. Now, she mostly likes all my off-kilter tracks. I hope you're in the mood for some bizarre combinations.

Originally I referred to strange mashups as "Qradips", a term which has since been superceded by "Crumplbanger". Essentially they're just like all mashups ; Assorted vocals over looped instrumentals, except the pairings are much quirkier. Instead of Katy Perry over Bruno Mars, you might get Katy Perry singing over Perez Prado.

The preview track for "Frikkenfrack 9 : Useo's Strangest Mashups" ( ) is ""Kissin' Windmills" ( Elvis Presley vs Stereo Action Orchestra ) which is "Kissin' Cousins" vocals singing over the Stereo Action Orchestra performing "The Windmills of Your Mind". The listeners at the hosting seem to have taken to it well.
( )

There's 24 quirky mixes lurking in this assemblage. I made most of them especially for CRUMPLSTOCK The 3-Day DJ Weekender, but they never had another. ( So far ) The variety is wide with tracks like The Bonzo Dog Band vs Black Sabbath, Harry Nilsson vs Experimental Sound Design, T.Rex vs The Kentucky Colonels & many more. Check out the full playlist here ( )

I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but normally the odd mashups do much better than my "normal" tracks. Lately, I'm giving myself a lot of competition between the normal vs strange mashups, though, with many of the normal ones taking an early lead. Who'da thunk'it?

& the previous 8 volumes have working links here

More mashups next week. Keep cool, if yer able.

Andrew Tobias: A Labor Day Bi-partisan Health Care Fix
Meanwhile, as we today celebrate labor, it's worth noting that Trump got elected not only promising "everybody great health care at a tiny fraction of the price," but also by promising higher wages for working people (and closing the carried-interest loophole for hedge fund billionaires). So it's worth noting today that he's moving to undo a ruling that would have extended overtime pay to 4.2 million workers (and abandoning his promise to close the loophole ).

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Where is the location of Davy Jones's Locker?

       Bottom of the Sea                                                      Source

Davy Jones's Locker is an idiom for the bottom of the sea: the state of death among drowned sailors and shipwrecks. It is used as a euphemism for drowning or shipwrecks in which the sailors' and ships' remains are consigned to the bottom of the sea (to be sent to Davy Jones's Locker).

The origins of the name of Davy Jones, the sailors' devil, are unclear, with a 19th-century dictionary tracing Davy Jones to a "ghost of Jonah". Other explanations of this nautical superstition have been put forth, including an incompetent sailor or a pub owner who kidnapped sailors.        Source

Mark. was first, and correct, with:
   Davy Jones's Locker is an idiomatic term referring to the bottom of the sea.

Randall wrote:
   Davy Jones' Locker

  at the bottom of the sea

Alan J answered:
   The Bottom of the Sea.

Kevin K. in Washington, DC said:
   Davy Jones' Locker is either at the bottom of the ocean or in the back of the Monkees' tour bus.

mj replied:
   It's a big locker
  Found at the bottom of the sea (or ocean, depending on how one describes those huge bodies of water.)

Deborah responded:
   Assuming you mean the sailor Davy Jones and not the late Monkee Davy Jones, I'm guessing his locker is at the bottom of the sea.
  By midday yesterday cloud cover moved in, increasing the humidity and providing a brief rain shower. Seasonal temps returned, hooray.

Gene said:

Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcali, replied:
   At the bottom of the sea...I'm not even going to wax poetic about this…

DJ Useo answered:
   Well, I can only say that Davy Jones Locker is at the bottom of the ocean, ( or so I've seen many times in various media ) but I can't produce latitude, & longitude. Personally, I would order the crab plate.

Billy in Cypress said:

  ... the bottom of the sea... I find it strange that Great Lakes mariners don't have a comparable concept considering the maritime history of the Lakes and the thousands of wrecks that litter the bottoms throughout. NOAA has National Marine Sanctuaries that protect many of those wrecks preserved so well by the cold fresh water. Such as... Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary | Home

  The concept here seems to be that it's personal - the Lake takes you... as if it's a living entity. You're just gone... and you then belong to the Lake...

What is Trump doing to us/me???

Hey, Marty:

   Shortly after waking up this morning I turned on the t.v. and, of course, had to check the Weather Channel for today's locals and to see where Category 4 Hurricane Irma might be headed. I found myself wishing, with every ounce of my being, that it would head to Florida and completely destroy Mar-a-Lago! That's obviously totally unfair to the rest of the folks in Florida, though, so I decided I'd better chill and find something more productive to do, like clean the cat box. So, I flipped over to one of the music channels and The Who's song, "Behind Blue Eyes" was just starting, a song I hadn't heard for quite a while, the lyrics of which I'd never really paid much attention to. As I sat there scooping the cat shit, I couldn't help but remember Eric Trump's warning last week that America's criticism is sending his daddy into a deep, dark depression. heart does NOT bleed! Now that his approval ratings have dropped as low as 33% do women no longer "just let" him grab their pussies, or what?! Or is Kim Jong Un's constant nuclear testing really triggering that phallic insufficiency that he obviously has?

   The lyrics seem to describe Trump perfectly...check it out, you'll see what I mean. I've never been a huge fan but, here, the The Who seem to be light years ahead of their time, without even knowing it! If only Trump WOULD 'bite back as hard on his anger' the world would be a much better place! When his 'fist clenches' I do hope there's someone there to 'crack it open...before he uses it and loses his cool' (keep your finger off that red button, Donald!!). I just know that if he swallows 'anything evil' (he does that everyday, when he has to eat his own words), my finger is NOT going down that throat! And if he shivers, I'm NOT giving him a blanket and he sure as hell ain't getting my coat!!

   What is happening to me? Does living in a state surrounded by cold, judgmental Repubs causing me to become like that too? I hate Trump even more than I hate my landlords, and that's saying something! I need to work on my own anger, I guess...

   Anyway, I'm glad you cooled off a little there, too, Marty! Where I live we went from a humid 96 degrees on Sun. to dry 69 degrees on Mon. and today, hallelujah! The smoke from the fires west of us finally cleared out last night, so today the sun and moon are back to their normal colors! Again, when the moon was the color of a mandarin orange, I couldn't help but think of Trump. OMG...see what happens? I try NOT to think about him, but he's EVERYWHERE! Help me, Lord...

Always a fan,

Tiera from SD

Thanks, Tiera!

Sends Message To Voyager

William Shatner

NASA announced the winner Tuesday of a contest to send a message to the Voyager spacecraft which launched 40 years ago on a historic mission to explore the outer planets.

Star Trek actor William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk, read the message from mission control in Houston, before it was beamed out to Voyager 1, according to a broadcast on NASA television.

"We offer friendship across the stars. You are not alone," said the message, written by Oliver Jenkins, whose Twitter handle is @Asperger_Nerd.

The contest launched by NASA aimed to find the perfect goodwill message -- under 60 characters long -- to commemorate the twin spacecraft that launched in 1977 from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The spaceships explored Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, and also carried gold records containing messages, songs and images from Earth in case of encountering extraterrestrial life.

New Postage Stamps

'Star Wars'

These stamps will be perfect for sending packages to a galaxy far, far away.

Britain's postal service, the Royal Mail, is marking the upcoming release of the new "Star Wars" movie, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," with a set of eight related postage stamps.

Maz Kanata, Chewbacca, Supreme Leader Snoke, BB-8, R2-D2, C-3PO, K-2SO and a Porg appear on the stamps, which were designed by British artist Malcolm Tween.

Four of the stamps also contain hidden details which can only be seen under UV light, according to the service.

Fans may pre-order the stamps via the Royal Mail website or buy them at post office branches across the United Kingdom on Oct. 12. The highly-anticipated movie opens in theaters in December.

Descendant Leaves Church After Denouncing White Supremacy

Robert E. Lee

The descendant of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, Rev. Robert Lee IV, has left the Bethany United Church of Christ after receiving backlash for his denouncement of white supremacy at the MTV Video Music Awards last week.

On Monday, an open letter by Lee describing the events that unfolded after his speech was published on a website for the Auburn Seminary. In the piece, Lee wrote that some members of the church "were concerned" about his speech and that the attention it brought to the church wasn't desired.

"My presence at the church as a descendent of Robert E. Lee and an outspoken opponent of white supremacy had already attracted attention, but with my appearance on MTV the media's focus on my church reached an all time high," he wrote. "A faction of church members were concerned about my speech and that I lifted up Black Lives Matter movement, the Women' s March, and Heather Heyer as examples of racial justice work."

He went on to say that "the church's reaction was deeply hurtful" to him.

The 24-year-old pastor had served the North Carolina church for just six months and says he doesn't want "this episode to be a distraction from the sacred work of confronting white supremacy in all its forms."

A Fight To Save Endangered Tapirs


Thirteen tapirs lounge in the bushes of Ticuantepe Zoo, in eastern Nicaragua, their bellies plump with leaves and fruit -- blissfully unaware of the peril faced by their kind.

The largest land mammals in Central America, the brown, pig-like animals with sloping snouts came into the world in captivity, in an enclosure a short distance from the country's Masaya Volcano, under a scheme to save their endangered species.

Each day they put away nine kilograms (20 pounds) of leaves, fruit and horse feed, and are regularly weighed and monitored by cameras.

"Here, they're well fed," said Eduardo Sacasa, a wildlife expert who runs the reproductive program. In some cases, too much so: one of the males, a three-year-old called Pamka, was put on a diet because "he is too fat."

Human encroachment and climate change have decimated the woodland habitat of the Baird's tapir, one of five species left in the world, and, along with human and feline predators, have helped wipe out 16 other tapir species.

EPA Accuses Reporter Of 'Fake News'

Hurricane Harvey

Taking a page from Donald Trump's (R-Fraudster) playbook, the Trump administration's Environmental Protection Agency accused the Associated Press of 'fake news' Sunday.

On Saturday the AP published a story showing toxic dumping grounds in Texas weren't being directly inspected by the EPA after they were flooded by Hurricane Harvey.

On Sunday the EPA called out one reporter on the story by name. "The Associated Press' Michael Biesecker wrote an incredibly misleading story about toxic land sites that are under water," the EPA shot back in a statement, accusing him of "reporting from the comfort of Washington."

The note accused Biesecker of sloppy work and linked to an editorial behind a paywall that accused him of sensationalizing EPA chief Scott Pruitt's ties to the energy industry and war on environmental regulations. A previous link on the statement went to an article on right-wing news site Breitbart.

The AP, however, visited seven toxic sites known as "Superfund sites" in and around Houston, Texas, by boat, vehicle, and on foot.

Suggests Hurricane Irma is a Liberal Hoax


Hurricane Irma is gathering strength over the Atlantic Ocean as it heads towards the Caribbean. Already rated Category 5, it is expected to make landfall in Florida by the end of the week, with many worried about a repeat of the havoc caused in Texas and Louisiana by Hurricane Harvey.

None of that seems to worry Rush Limbaugh.

On Monday, the right-wing radio personality delivered a customarily freewheeling monologue in which he seemed to suggest that hurricanes were a liberal conspiracy intended to convince the public that climate change is real.

Limbaugh is a resident of Palm Beach, Florida, and the hurricane-themed monologue appeared to be driven by his observation that bottled water had already been sold out in local stores, in preparation for Irma's imminent landfall.

"The reason that I am leery of forecasts this far out, folks, is because I see how the system works," Limbaugh said, alluding to alleged conspiracies against Donald J. Trump (R-Buffoon). "Hurricane Harvey and the TV pictures that accompany that go a long way to helping further and create the panic."



Trump Is 'Not My Bride'


Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed a question about Donald Trump (R-Crooked) at a news conference Tuesday, refusing to comment on U.S. political affairs and distancing himself from the American leader.

Trump is "not my bride, and, likewise, I am neither his bride nor bridegroom. We are statesmen," Putin told reporters, according to a translation by Reuters.

Putin also said it was "naive" to question whether he was disappointed with Trump's actions as president, yet he criticized the U.S. order last week that the Kremlin close a Russian consulate in San Francisco and floated the idea of retaliatory action in response to its shuttering.

The news conference took place at an economic summit for BRICS countries ? Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa ? being held in the Chinese city of Xiamen this week. Putin answered questions for around 45 minutes, sometimes using the platform to take jabs at Washington.

"It's difficult to talk to people who confuse Austria with Australia," Putin said, in a dig at U.S. officials. President George W. Bush raised eyebrows, and laughs, when he mixed up the two nations in 2007.

Gave T-rump 83 Gifts

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia gave Donald Trump (R-Corrupt) 83 gifts including an artwork of himself and a robe lined with cheetah fur during his state visit to the kingdom, it has emerged.

Mr Trump made his first foreign visit as president to the Gulf state in May, where he lavished praise on the "magnificent" country during a keynote address.

A number of traditional Saudi Arabian outfits and head scarves also featured among the gifts

The trip proved controversial after the US President failed to address Saudi Arabia's record on human rights in his keynote speech, instead saying: "We are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship."

Despite being critical of the Gulf nation in his presidential campaign, the 71-year-old broke with the presidential tradition of visiting Canada or Mexico first and was accused of using the visit to Saudi to shift focus away from domestic uproar over his firing of FBI director James Comey.

Wildfire Smoke


A growing Oregon wildfire covered parts of Portland's metropolitan area Tuesday with ash and prompted the shutdown of a lengthy stretch of highway through the state's scenic Columbia River Gorge.

It was one of dozens of wildfires burning in western U.S. states that sent smoke into cities from Seattle to Denver - prompting health warnings and cancellations of outdoor activities for children by many school districts.

The National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho, a federal agency that coordinates wildfire-fighting, said 80 large fires were burning on 2,200 square miles (5,700 square kilometers) in nine Western states.

The 16-square mile (41-square kilometers) fire east of Portland forced hundreds of home evacuations. Embers from the fire drifted in the air across the Columbia River - sparking blazes in neighboring Washington state.

And a wildfire burning near Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state grew to more than 29 square miles (75 square kilometers) and heavy smoke blanketed many cities in Washington state.
