M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - June 8th, 2016

Mash Of The Titans 5 Kicks Ass & Takes Names.

By DJ Useo

   Over in the world of mashups, we've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Panos T's " Mash Of The Titans 5" ( ) , the fifth volume of a beloved bootleg series that has been teased relentlessly over the past month, or more. Sure, there's other fine mashup compilations thoughout the year, but this one has carved out a place in our cortex's through virtue of it's many famed contributors. The contributors populating this gem of a series are the big "dawgs" that the rest of us speak of in hushed whispers.

   MOTT 5 ( ) has the most well known, skilled producers from the entire Earth. Established folk like DJ's From Mars, The Fabulous Beatmashers, Kill_MR_DJ, DJ Schmolli, Mashup-Germany, & many more. The content stretches out over 22 tracks through mixes like Shahar Varshal's "Goodbye, Lush Sister", Robin Skouteris' "Rhythm Is A Mashup", & Cosmic Dawn's "I Will Survive Adventure Of A Lifetime".

   To protect the viability of the release, MOTT 5 ( ) the album omits mention of the source artists, but believe you me, the mashups on here make no surprise of the music employed. You'll find it all strangely familiar, as we bootleggers tend to say. For instance here's one of the excellent videos that Panos T slicked up. It's Happy Cat Disco's "Same Old Pop", a gem of a mix that has 15 modern pop stars all coexisting splendidly in one brief single track ( ) .

   DJ's From Mars also brings joy with their awesome Panos T video for " Faded Cheap Thrills" ( ) .

   Megamix Central's " Five Harmonies of Fifth Harmony" is a super track, & the Panos T video makes it even more of a memorable experience.
( )

   Mr. K provides fine mental stimulation in the Panos T video for "What Makes Me Latch On A Dream".
( )

   Mixmstrstel's "Never Forget Your Dark Heart" brings it on in the Panos T vid-craft here.
( )

   & Shahar Varshal's Panos T-made video love affair for "Goodbye, Lush Sister" is also a great preview video track for this large project ( ).

I had a rollicking great time in live chats during the KOPIMI RADIO with Mazanga Von Badman MOTT 5 premiere fm broadcast. Mazanga was joined by the fantastic live fm host, DJ Joker & Panos himself for super hosting bits that added much to the already fine audio presentation. Here's the great show re-posted here.
( )

   I hope you enjoy some or all of the notable success of a project. You can find links for the previous 4 MOTT releases from this swell links.

   Thanks to all those involved with this release.

   I'll be back next week with a cool roundup of popular recent mashup singles. -Konrad

'Even Better, He Said'

Amber Tamblyn

Amber Tamblyn and Armie Hammer are calling out James Woods.

In response to a Twitter exchange between Hammer and Woods, Tamblyn claimed on the thread that Woods had hit on her and a friend in the past, when she was 16-years-old.

"James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once," Tamblyn claimed on Twitter. "He wanted to take us to Vegas. 'I'm 16' I said. 'Even better' he said."

To back up and give context to all this, Tamblyn's tweet was in reply to Hammer's clapback at a shady tweet Woods, 70, sent out, directed at Hammer's upcoming gay romance movie, Call Me By Your Name. The film, which hits theaters on Nov. 24, already achieved critical acclaim at Sundance and at this weekend's Toronto International Film Festival, and it depicts a relationship between a 24-year-old and 17-year-old in 1980s Italy. (The country's age of consent is 14.)

"As they quietly chip away the last barriers of decency," Woods tweeted, using the hashtag, "#NAMBLA."

Goes Cashless For Pot Sales


Hawaii said Tuesday that it aims to be the first state to require marijuana sales to be handled without cash, saying it wanted to avoid robberies and other crimes targeting dispensaries.

All of Hawaii's eight licensed dispensaries have agreed to go cashless by Oct. 1, the governor's office said. The dispensaries will ask patients to use a debit payment app to buy their pot instead of cash. The app is already an option for marijuana transactions in six states, including California and Colorado.

Many marijuana businesses use cash because banks fear pot money could expose them to legal trouble from the U.S. government, which regulates banking and still bans marijuana.

The debit app called CanPay uses a Colorado-based credit union to facilitate transactions. The Hawaii dispensaries will set up accounts with the credit union, called Safe Harbor Private Banking.

Under the cashless system, customers use their checking accounts to pay CanPay, which sends the payment to Safe Harbor.

Cats On A Train


A Japanese civic group teamed up with a railway operator on Sunday to let some 30 cats roam on a local train at an event, hoping it will raise awareness of the culling of stray cats.

Passengers on a local train in Ogaki, in central Japan, were greeted by meowing companions on a moving train, where some passengers mingled with the felines while others enjoyed lunch.

"I think it's great more people are aware about stray kittens through events like this," said Mikiko Hayashi, a passenger from western Japan, who owns two cats that were strays. The event was hosted by Yoro Railway Co Ltd and a non-governmental organization called Kitten Cafe Sanctuary.

The number of cats in Japan admitted to shelters has dropped by around 70 percent to 72,624 in 2016 from 237,246 in 2004. That has reduced the number of cats culled from 238,929 in 2004 to 45,574 in 2016. The cat population in Japan is around 9.8 million.

Rally For Catalan Independence


Around one million Catalans rallied in Barcelona on Monday, waving red and yellow striped flags and banging drums, in a show of support for independence after Madrid moved to block a referendum on the region's split from Spain.

Sept. 11 marks the 'Diada', Catalonia's national day, which commemorates the fall of Barcelona to Spain in 1714 and is traditionally used by pro-independence activists to call for secession for the northeastern region with a distinct language.

However, this year's event had particular significance as a show of strength for the independence movement just three weeks ahead of a referendum on the issue which Madrid has declared illegal and taken steps to obstruct in the courts.

Demonstrators climbed on each others' shoulders to form human towers, a Catalan tradition, while others carried banners reading 'We're going to be a free country!' and 'Full of hope' while wearing fluorescent yellow t-shirts with the word 'yes'.

City police said on Twitter that around one million people took part, one of the highest turn-outs in recent years. Protesters said they hoped the vote would go ahead as planned on Oct. 1.



Digby's Hullabaloo


Named White House Communications Director

Hope Hicks

Hope Hicks, who has served as interim White House communications director since Anthony Scaramucci was abruptly ousted from the position in July, will remain in the job on a permanent basis, CNN, NBC and Bloomberg report. Hicks is the third person to hold the post since President-for-now Donald Trump's (R-Crooked) inauguration in January.

The appointment follows repeated shake-ups to the communications office and White House staff. In July, former Wall Street financier and frequent cable news guest Scaramucci was appointed to replace Mike Dubke, who resigned in May. Dubke, who was on the job for just three months, said his reasons for leaving were "personal."

Scaramucci immediately set out to crack down on administration officials leaking to the press, vowing to fire "everybody" in the communications shop if unauthorized disclosures didn't stop. Shortly after that pronouncement, he told Politico he planned to fire assistant press secretary Michael Short, who quit before Scaramucci could make good on the threat.

Scaramucci was booted just 10 days after his appointment, reportedly at the request of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. Scaramucci's brief tenure was marked by controversy, most notably a profanity-laden New Yorker interview in which he took aim at fellow Trump advisers Reince Priebus (R-Lube-Pro) and Steve Bannon (R-Contortionist). (Priebus resigned as Trump's chief of staff shortly after the interview's publication and Bannon left the administration last month.)

Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement after Scaramucci's departure. "We wish him all the best."

$3 Billion For Foxconn


The Wisconsin Senate was poised to approve nearly $3 billion in cash payments for Taiwan-based Foxconn Technology Group on Tuesday, an unprecedented incentive package for the electronics company to locate a flat-screen factory in the state.

The proposed subsidy would be the largest ever from a U.S. state to a foreign company and 10 times bigger than anything Wisconsin has extended to a private business. It would take at least 25 years for Wisconsin to see a return on its investment, the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau estimated.

Foxconn would receive $2.85 billion in cash payments over 15 years if it invests $10 billion in the state and employs 13,000 people. It could also qualify for $150 million in sales tax exemptions for construction equipment.

The Assembly, which like the Senate is firmly in GOP control, takes a final vote Thursday. The bill then goes to Gov. Scott Walker, who led negotiations on the deal and has a deadline to sign a bill by the end of the month.

Critics, including Democrats who don't have the votes to stop it, argued Tuesday that state taxpayers are giving up too much. They also questioned whether the state economic development agency, which has had trouble tracking much smaller projects, will be able to properly verify that the required investments are made and jobs created.



Stole U.S. Presidency?


A Russian politician claimed on TV that Russian intelligence "stole" the U.S. presidential election under the nose of U.S. intelligence.

Vyacheslav Nikonov, a member of Russia's lower house of parliament, the Duma, appeared Sunday night on a show hosted by presenter Vladimir Solovyov that focused on whether U.S. global influence was in decline.

"U.S. intelligence missed it when Russian intelligence stole the president of the United States," said Nikonov, before going on to extol the superior ability of Russian versus U.S. intelligence.

The comments were highlighted by Julia Davis, who runs the "Russian Lies" blog, which claims to "combat Russian propaganda."

University of Virginia professor Allen Lynch, an expert on Russian foreign policy, told the Hill that Nikonov was not so much explaining Russia's influence during the U.S. election as discussing how the chaos of the fallout was emblematic of U.S. decline.

Tax Plan Would Put Hundreds Of Millions In His Pocket


While middle-class rates, deductions and credits in Donald Trump's (R-Corrupt) tax proposal remain hazy, there is one piece of the plan that has become clear: the part that could put more than $125 million into Trump's own pocket each year.

The only specific number Trump has mentioned in two speeches on his tax reform proposal so far has been his goal for the corporate tax rate: 15 percent, down from the current 35 percent. And White House legislative director Marc Short confirmed Tuesday that Trump wants to extend that reduced rate to so-called "S" corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies.

Those "small" businesses, though, can make enormous profits, as in the case of the dozens of "LLCs" owned by Trump. A HuffPost review of his 2017 financial disclosure statement shows Trump earned at least $551 million from those entities in the past year, a figure that represents the vast majority of his income. Discounting the golf courses and real estate entities with overseas assets ? which are presumably subject to taxes in those jurisdictions ? the total is $519 million.

Currently, LLCs and related entities are not taxed as formal corporations. Rather, their income is taxed on their owners' individual returns. That maximum rate is 39.6 percent ? but would drop all the way to 15 percent under Trump's proposal.

So how much would Trump save with that tax cut on a half-billion dollars in income?

"One hundred and twenty-five million. Just straight arithmetic," said Roberton Williams, with the Tax Policy Center. "That's assuming that the $500 million is all taxable income."



Says T-rump Is Being Covertly Drugged

Alex Jones

Alex Jones (R-Dog Whistle) ? the far-right radio host who has trafficked in crackpot conspiracy theories about 9/11, Sandy Hook and the KKK ? told a woozy doozy on Monday.

Citing "high level sources" and "multiple people" on his syndicated show, he said that President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Buffoon) was being drugged in sodas and iced teas to the point he's slurring his words at night. And it's all part of a plot to control him.

"They drug presidents because the power structure wants a puppet," Jones said in the clip below from Media Matters.

The sedation of the commander in chief started about two months ago, the Trump loyalist said.

At one point Jones told his millions of listeners: "I'm going to leave it at that."

In Memory

Edith Windsor

Edith Windsor, LGBTQ activist and lead plaintiff in a pivotal Supreme Court marriage-equality case, died Tuesday at age 88, according to the New York Times.

Windsor's case eliminated the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013 by granting federal recognition and benefits to same-sex married couples.

That decision was limited to 13 states and the District of Columbia, but it was followed by a 2015 Supreme Court ruling that declared same-sex couples throughout the nation had a constitutional right to marry.

Windsor is survived by wife Judith Kasen-Windsor. The pair wed in October 2016.

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?
