As we prepare for the audio feast before us, allow me to remind you that one stage is club music, & the other is mashups most CRUMP. This means there's a wild genre clash applied to the tunes to provide groovin' music with a slight "novelty" flavor. Here's a fine example of a nicely "crumped" set. It's "Scott Cairo on Mxlr 81" Newly posted, & a worthy set indeed.
( hearthis.at/8ghwctmr/scott-cairo-on-mixlr-81/ )
There'll be astonishing sets from lads like Pom Deter, Pilchard, KrazyBen, GenErik, Alvin Starburst & so very many more. I attended the first Crumplstock, & I highly advise listening in to the live streams. All will be posted afterwards, but live is much better. Here's my preview mix with only mashups by others. My actual set will be comprised of only my own mixes, because who else will do that for me? ;)
SIMON CRITCHLEY: There Is No Theory of Everything (NY Times)
One thinks of Sidney Morgenbesser, long-time philosophy professor at Columbia, whom I once heard described as a "mind on the loose." The philosopher Robert Nozick said of his undergraduate education that he "majored in Sidney Morgenbesser." On his deathbed, Morgenbesser is said to have asked: "Why is God making me suffer so much? Just because I don't believe in him?"
Andrew Tobias: The Donald - II
Bush and the Koch Brothers do for sure want Trump to lose the primary - and have vast opposition-research resources at their disposal - so if this story could hurt Trump, it will probably come out. But why would it hurt him? The piece acknowledges that everybody who wanted to build anything in New York worked with certain facilitators they probably knew were connected to the mob. Confronted with this charge, Trump would likely just brush it off.
Scott Burns: How To Make Everyone Happy (AssetBuilder)
Let's make a scary assumption: You ran for office and won. You are a new member of Congress. Now you have the truly scary task of talking to constituents about things like Social Security and Medicare. What do you do? Where do you start?
Margaretha Geertruida "Margreet" MacLeod (née Zelle; 7 August 1876 - 15 October 1917), better known by the stage name Mata Hari, was a Frisian exotic dancer and courtesan who was convicted of being a spy and executed by firing squad in France under charges ofespionage for Germany during World War I.
Ah, that's the long name for Mata Hari.
Haven't run the a/c since Saturday, and it's just lovely.
Dale of Diamond Springs replied:
Between the two fires, almost 1000 homes and structures have burned with approximately 14,000 in danger. Butt we have a tiny bit of Autumn today. Yeah, but it still is fucking stinky-smoky.
Mata Hari is just another "persecuted free spirit" of Paris from the early 20th century. As usual. Men and war got in the way of her survival. 12 stoic executioners shot her dead. What I always thought was interesting about these firing squads is that they were honourable enough to only arm 11 out of 12 rifles. "Oh, I must have been the one that shot the blank." Men couldn't handle a woman that liked "cock" and all the trimmings.
Lois: There goes that strange connection again! We must have been star-crossed lovers at some time in the past!
DJ Useo answered:
I am well & truly stumped. I concede.
Mata Hari ~ Was a Dutch exotic dancer, courtesan, and accused spy who was executed by firing squad in France under charges of espionage for Germany during World War I.
Joe S replied:
All History Majors know the answer is Mata Hari. And the lesson we learn from Mata Hari is gentlemen are smitten by ladies without their sweaters, but gentlemen will divulge all their secrets to ladies without their pants.
Patriot Act NSA Spying Unconstitutional Section 215 National Security Letters Must End
My name is Marc Perkel and I have decided to announce that I will not comply with the so called "Patriot Act" laws requiring me to disclose information about my customers. 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.

The art collection of celebrated writer and civil rights activist Maya Angelou sold for nearly $1.3 million on Tuesday.
A painted story quilt that hung in Angelou's Harlem home and was commissioned by Oprah Winfrey for Angelou's 61st birthday brought $461,000 at the Swann Galleries sale.
"Maya's Quilt of Life" by African-American artist Faith Ringgold depicts Angelou surrounded by flowers along with excerpts from some of her writings. The acrylic on canvas with a pieced fabric border had a pre-sale estimate of $150,000 to $250,000.
The nearly 50 artworks were consigned to the auction house's African-American Fine Art Department by Angelou's estate.
Her personal papers, including letters to Malcolm X and James Baldwin, are housed at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, a research unit of the New York Public Library.

Elton John says Vladimir Putin has phoned him, after the musician requested a meeting to discuss Russia's anti-gay environment.
On Instagram, the star said "thank-you to President Vladimir Putin for reaching out and speaking via telephone with me today. I look to forward to meeting with you face-to-face to discuss LGBT equality in Russia."
John's publicist, Gary Farrow, confirmed the content of the Instagram post Tuesday.
Last week John criticized Russia's law against gay "propaganda" and comments by Putin suggesting that gay people prey on children. He told the BBC he would "love to sit down with him" and try to change Putin's mind.

When an old beech tree toppled over during winter storms in Ireland this year, a skeletal surprise was hiding in the gigantic mass of roots pulled from the ground: the remains of a medieval boy.
The 215-year-old tree was uprooted in May in Collooney, a town in the county of Sligo, on the northwest coast of Ireland. Preliminary analyses of the bones by osteoarchaeologist Linda Lynch and others at Sligo-Leitrim Archaeological Services (SLAS), a private consultancy, revealed the remains of a young man who was between 17 and 20 years old when he died.
The researchers also dated the bones by measuring the carbon-14, a naturally occurring radioactive isotope also called radiocarbon. Because this isotope (an element with a different number of neutrons in its nucleus) decays at a regular rate, scientists can tell how old an organic material is by measuring the amount of radiocarbon present. They found that the boy died during the medieval period, between A.D. 1030 and 1200.
And apparently, his death was a violent one, as Lynch found several injuries on the ribs and hand that were likely inflicted by a knife. The entire skeleton was buried, but when the tree was uprooted, it ripped the upper part of the body, which was entangled in the roots, out of the ground.
Two years after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R-Pendejo) privatized much of the state's lottery operations, a big payoff remains out of sight.
Higher costs associated with the private company that Christie hired, Northstar New Jersey, have cut the state's income for the second straight year, creating a $136 million shortfall in the state's 2015 budget, according to internal documents obtained by The Associated Press. The results are poor enough that the state is entitled to fire the company if its performance doesn't improve in the current fiscal year.
The underperformance raises questions about the privatization strategy championed by Christie, who promoted lottery outsourcing as a way to shrink the government's payroll and bring in more cash.
Christie's push benefited some key political allies. During its ultimately successful pursuit of the state's business, Northstar New Jersey hired the communications firm of Christie campaign strategist Mike DuHaime. The law and lobbying firm of former Port Authority chairman David Samson received $460,000 for lobbying on behalf of Northstar between 2012 and the end of last year.
Northstar is a partnership that includes GTECH S.p.A, the largest global lottery business, and Scientific Gaming. The two companies have sometimes brought in other entities to pursue lottery management contracts in several states.
Republican presidential candidates not named Donald Trump have raised hundreds of millions of dollars for their campaigns and allied groups. Yet none of that money is being targeted against the celebrity real estate mogul, the party's front-runner through the summer.
Now the first well-funded anti-Trump volley is coming, though not from another candidate. It's from the Club for Growth, a Washington-based tax-cutting advocacy group that just months ago asked Trump for a contribution.
The group said Tuesday it will spend $1 million assailing Trump on TV in the early caucus state of Iowa. Its 30-second commercials, which begin Thursday, call him "the worst kind of politician," highlight some of his most liberal positions and say he's playing voters "for chumps."
For now, though, Club for Growth is going it alone.
Some of the largest pro-Republican political groups - including the Koch brothers-led Americans for Prosperity, GOP strategist Karl Rove's Crossroads groups and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce - say they have no immediate plans to swat at him.
Flexing its muscles amid a bitter congressional fight over the U.S. Export-Import Bank, General Electric Co on Tuesday revealed plans to shift up to 500 U.S. manufacturing jobs to Europe and China because it can no longer access EXIM financing.
The largest U.S. industrial conglomerate said it will move production of some heavy duty gas turbines and 400 jobs to Belfort, France, in exchange for a credit line from France's COFACE export agency. The deal will support GE bids for international power projects.
U.S. plants in Greenville, South Carolina; Schenectady, New York; and Bangor, Maine, will lose out on those jobs if GE wins the power bids, a GE spokeswoman said.
GE also said 100 additional final assembly jobs for smaller turbine generator sets derived from aircraft engines will move next year from outside of Houston to Hungary and China. No U.S. facility will close, a GE spokeswoman said.
This undated photo provided by Julien's Auctions shows Beatle Ringo Starr's first 1963 Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl three-piece drum kit, used by Starr in more than 200 performances in 1963 and 1964. The set was used to record some of the Beatles' biggest hits, including "Can't Buy Me Love," "She Loves You," "All My Loving," and "I Want to Hold Your Hand." More than 800 items owned by Starr and his wife, Barbara Bach, are going to auction. The unprecedented number of Beatles-owned objects will be offered Dec. 4-5, 2015, at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Summer Arctic sea ice shrank to its fourth lowest level on record this month, dispelling faint hopes of a recovery, federal scientists said.
The National Snow and Ice Data Center announced Tuesday that the Arctic hit its summer minimum last week with 1.7 million square miles of sea ice, down 240,000 square miles from 2014. That's a difference the size of California, New York and Maryland combined.
"The ice is decreasing over time, which you would expect because the Arctic is warming," data center scientist Julienne Stroeve said.
Summer minimum sea ice has shrunk since satellites started measuring in 1979. It reached a peak of 2.91 million square miles in 1980 and hit an all-time low of 1.3 million square miles in 2012. It went back up to 1.95 in 2013 and hovered near there in 2014.
The five years between 1979 and 1983 averaged 2.76 million square miles during the summer minimum. The last five years average 1.72 million square miles, a decrease of 38 percent and more than a million square miles.
