So, I spent three days this last weekend listening to amazing mashup DJ's playing live one hour sets over the net. I hung out in chats, & laughed, loved, & listened to big talents with major skills as they pleased audiences again, & again. You can check out every set at both stages from
( crumplebangers.com/crumplstock/ )
Simply click on the DJ name & then the play symbol, & you'll know why I stayed all 3 days.
I'm familiar with nearly everyone who performed. Most are longtime online pals. All are spread out around the world. Some are even rumored to be from other planets. Lol. From the opening crumplbanger set by Alvin Stardust, the quality, & appeal shone mightily. The tunes satisfied me completely. I can only imagine the reaction of people who'd never experienced mashups. As I mentioned, there was a second stage where non-mashups were played. I never made it there.
As I listened to tunes from DJ's like pomDeter, KrazyBen, oki, & so many more great bootleggers it was clear this was a special event. Crumplbangers are mashups with appeal, & some lunacy. Most of the DJ's kept to that, however the departures were significant. Swiss Master BBQ and Msmiep spun sort'a mashups, but they played tracks like no one else makes. Very noisy with great stream of consciousness stuff plus fine duel hosting. They went over hugely.
Youtek played hardcore techno that was fast & intricate. It quickly won us all over, as the set was brilliant. Toynoiz got a huge response with his set of toy instrument flavored tracks. No one expected that, & all loved it. A super cool set was done with all mashup videos by Dan Untitled. You can find that set here as a

One of the sets that impressed me the most was from Frances' ToToM. He made an original hour of Pink Floyd, & Beatles mashups. All were spiced up splendidly with tons of extra acapellas. While he claimed he wasn't actually finished with all the tracks, we were all well pleased with what we heard. I closed the show with a set of only own silly mashups. I even had a couple of unreleased exclusives in my set with "Best Dirty Dancing Message" ( Specials vs Missy Elliott vs Bryan Clara ) & "Wondersoul Kitchen" ( Oasis vs Doors ). I posted my set for
streaming, & downloading here

The show was so well enjoyed that the next date was selected already. From now on, there'll be a similar online DJ festival every 3 months. If you can't wait for the next one, enjoy the many posted sets here -

Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie "Gracie" Allen (July 26, 1895 - August 27, 1964), was an American comedienne who became internationally famous as the zany partner and comic foil of husband George Burns. For contributions to the television industry, Gracie Allen was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6672 Hollywood Boulevard. The team of Burns and Allen was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in 1988.
In 1940, the team launched a stunt when Allen announced she was running for President of the United States on the Surprise Party ticket. Burns and Allen did a cross-country whistlestop campaign tour on a private train, performing their live radio show in different cities. In one of her campaign speeches Gracie said, "I don't know much about the Lend-Lease Bill, but if we owe it we should pay it." Another typical Gracie-ism on the campaign trail went like this: "Everybody knows a woman is better than a man when it comes to introducing bills into the house." The Surprise Party mascot was the kangaroo; the motto was "It's in the bag." As part of the gag, Allen (in reality, the Burns and Allen writers) published a book, Gracie Allen for President, which included photographs from their nationwide campaign tour and the Surprise Party convention. Allen received an endorsement from Harvard University, and went on to receive 42,000 votes in the general election in November 1940; only six other female United States presidential and vice-presidential candidates have received more votes in a presidential election.
Legislative Lois Of Oregon replied:
"I may take a drink now and then, but I never get affiliated." Gracie Allen was a comic genius, and her Surprise Party was hilarious! But I can't help but blame her for our current state of surreal carnival-politics. She set the standard that allowed vapid mouth-puppets like Ronald Reagan to SOMEHOW achieve ultimate power, and front for the Forces Of Evil! When our general population grew so feeble minded they could no longer recognize SATIRE, they somehow voted that swine into office, and accelerated our decent into hell! Yes Gracie! I BLAME YOU!
I used to know and my old lady brain isn't cooperating, so I looked up the answer: Gracie Allen
The temps hit 104° yesterday, and today a stiff wind is blowing some most-welcome cool air around. Needed a sweater in the morning. Lovely.

Wendell Willkie was an actually for reals Liberal Repuke. Anything to defeat FDR. A maverick industrialist? Comparison to Terump? Silent Majority? And a womanizer that the press left alone.
Listened to an old Joan Baez from 1972. Her banter in between songs was very interesting and revealing. This was right about the time when David Harris got out of jail. War, racism, income inequality, Bad Big Spying Ass Government and shifty lying-ass pols…Same shit different day!
I'm being provoked by outside agitators…remember them?
Gracie Allen ~ Part of the popular comic duo Burns and Allen. Allen's Surprise Party began as a publicity stunt, but during a whistle-stop tour across the country the campaign took on a life of its own. Mascot of the Surprise Party was a kangaroo named Laura.
Mamy thanks to Linda for being a fan and her kind remarks!

As an History Major, (an English Major informed me that *an* History Major is correct, not *a* History Major) anyway, as an History Major I felt I should know this. But I didn't. Then with little research I discovered the answer is, Gracie Allen. I should have known. But now that little known fact, (little known by folks under the age of 85) is tucked away in my "little gray cells" for future reference.

One of the country's top writers about race, Ta-Nehisi Coates, has signed up with Marvel Comics for a Black Panthers series.
Coates, whose open letter to his son "Between the World and Me" is a bestseller and National Book Award nominee, is collaborating with artist Brian Stelfreeze on a storyline about revolution, terrorism and heroism inspired by the militant organization founded in the 1960s.
The 39-year-old Coates long has been a fan of comics, often tweeting about them on his popular feed @tanehisicoates. The new, year-long series begins next spring, Marvel announced Tuesday.
In a statement, Marvel editor in chief Axel Alonso praises Coates as a "powerful and singular literary voice" who will tell a story about "the world we have created, and the world we want to live in."
Sean Penn on Tuesday filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against "Empire" co-creator Lee Daniels over comments Daniels made comparing him to the show's star Terrence Howard, who's been repeatedly accused of domestic violence.
Daniels' comments appeared online about a week ago in the entertainment publication The Hollywood Reporter in a story about the upcoming season of the popular Fox television show.
"That poor boy (Terrence) ain't done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he's some ... demon," Daniels said in the article. "That's a sign of time, of race, of where we are right now in America."
Penn's lawsuit, filed in Manhattan civil court, says Daniels' statements were egregious and injured Penn's credibility and reputation personally, professionally and in his philanthropic activities.
Sheltering from the midday heat in her yellow-painted bungalow, Chieftainess Mwenda speaks passionately about her mission to end child marriage in Zambia, starting first in her own chiefdom.
Reigning over 111 villages in Zambia's far northern Luapula province, Mwenda said her attitude towards a long-standing custom of early marriage changed almost overnight, when, four years ago, she learned about the dangers of teen pregnancies.
"The doctors explained that there are numerous complications when a girl gets pregnant at a young age, so arising from that I got involved in the thought to push it further," said the elderly chieftainess, clad in a bright pink and yellow dress, in an interview at the modest home she calls her palace.
"No one should allow a child in school (to marry)," she said, seated in an armchair and flanked by her two watchful advisers, one of them sitting on a sack of maize.
In this remote area, the word of the chief can have more impact than laws enacted some 800 km (500 miles) away in the capital Lusaka.
This undated photo provided by the J. Paul Getty Museum shows a page from a 13th century Armenian manuscript known as the the Canon Tables. Eight beautifully illustrated pages from the manuscript will remain at the J. Paul Getty Museum under a deal announced Monday, Sept. 21, 2015, that resolves a dispute over whether the museum or the Armenian Apostolic Church was the papers' rightful owner.
A federal judge has ruled that the music publishing company that has been collecting royalties for the song "Happy Birthday To You" does not hold a valid copyright to the popular tune that is sung worldwide.
U.S. District Judge George H. King ruled Tuesday that the copyright originally filed by the Clayton F. Summy Co. in 1935 granted only the rights to specific arrangements of the tune and not the actual song itself.
In invalidating the copyright, King ruled that Summy never acquired the rights to the song's lyrics.
Warner/Chappell Music has been enforcing the copyright claim since it bought Summy's successor, the Birch Tree Group.
The county clerk from Kentucky who went to jail rather than issue marriage licenses to gay couples said the licenses being granted by her staff are invalid, according to an interview that aired on Tuesday.
"I can't put my name on a license that doesn't represent what God ordained what marriage to be," Kim Davis (R-Coño) said in a television interview with ABC News, taped on Monday.
Davis, 50, has said her Christian beliefs prevent her from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. She was released on the condition that she not interfere with the issuance of marriage licenses.
Davis added that she was prepared to return to jail over the controversy, according to ABC.

Some Catholic churches in the United States are leasing out their lands for drills by oil and gas companies, despite Pope Francis's persistent push on climate action.
Texas and Oklahoma county records reveal "235 oil and gas leasing deals signed by Catholic Church authorities ... since 2010, covering 56 counties across the two states," according to Reuters.
This does not square easily with the Pope's repeated calls to reduce fossil fuel use in order to combat climate change.
In June, the Pope focused exclusively on the environment in his first global encyclical, as The Christian Science Monitor's Harry Bruinius reported. Pope Francis condemned the "structurally perverse" economic system of the rich exploiting the poor and destroying the planet, and he called for "drastically" reducing fossil fuel use and developing renewable energy.
But not everyone embraced the Pope's message. Church officials in Oklahoma City "have signed three new oil and gas leases since Francis's missive on the environment," Reuters reports.
Spiritual leaders of the Sioux and more than a dozen Native American tribes want U.S. officials to rename Devils Tower, an iconic rock formation and national monument in Wyoming that has religious and cultural importance to the tribes.
Chief Arvol Looking Horse, spiritual leader of the Great Sioux Nation and the head of the effort, said the name is offensive and suggests that Indian religious rituals practiced for centuries at the striking 900-foot (274-meter) tower in the Black Hills were forms of devil worship.
In 1906, when the formation became the first in the country to be designated as a national monument, its name was based on a mistranslation of its Indian title, according to the National Park Service.
An interpreter with an 1875 expedition by a U.S. Army colonel told him the term meant "Bad God's Tower," later shortened to Devils Tower.
Gov. Chris Christie (R-Lap Band) wants the leader of New Jersey's National Guard to shape up.
The governor has given Air Force Brig. Gen. Michael Cunniff 90 days to slim down and meet his obligations.
The action comes after Christie's staff told The Washington Post that the governor was unaware the general had been reprimanded by the Pentagon about his weight and for repeatedly dodging physical-fitness tests.
"The Governor has expressed directly to the General that his failure to meet that standard or to provide notification of his formal reprimand is both unacceptable and disappointing," Christie spokesman Kevin Roberts said in an emailed statement.
Christie, who once called himself "the healthiest fat guy you've ever seen," secretly underwent weight-loss surgery in 2013. A band was surgically placed around his stomach to restrict how much food he could eat.
Jeremy P. Tarcher, whose eponymous publishing house released an eclectic wave of bestsellers ranging from Joan Rivers' "Having a Baby Can Be a Scream" to "Bikram's Beginning Yoga Class," has died.
Penguin Group (USA), the parent company of Jeremy P. Tarcher Inc., announced that Tarcher died Sunday from complications related to Parkinson's disease. He was 83 and died at his home in Bel Air, California, a Penguin spokeswoman told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Tarcher, the brother of bestselling author Judith Krantz and widower of Emmy-winning puppeteer Shari Lewis, founded his company in the early 1970s. A transplanted New Yorker who had studied Eastern philosophy in India, he set up shop on Sunset Boulevard and effectively tapped into the West Coast culture. His successes included Mind/Body/Spirit guides (Betty Edwards' million-selling "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain"), New Age favourites ("Bikram's Beginning Yoga Class") and numerous celebrity books, including Lewis' "The Kids-Only Book Club."
"Being 3,000 miles from the orchestra," Tarcher said of the New York publishing world during a People magazine interview in 1976, "we can make our own music out here."
Tarcher also helped oversee the rise of Lewis' career, organizing her first network TV show (for NBC, in 1960) and collaborating with her on a script for the original "Star Trek" series. Tarcher and Lewis were married in 1958 and remained together until her death, 40 years later. Their daughter, Mallory Lewis, also became a puppeteer.
Tarcher's publishing house was purchased by Putnam, now part of Penguin, in 1991. He continued to run the company, which was moved to New York, until 1996.
A sheep shakes itself dry after it was given a wash by its trader at a livestock market ahead of the Eid al-Adha festival in Bengaluru, India, September 22, 2015. Muslims across the world are preparing to celebrate the annual festival of Eid al-Adha or the Feast of the Sacrifice, which marks the end of the annual haj pilgrimage, by slaughtering goats, sheep, cows and camels in commemoration of the Prophet Abraham's readiness to sacrifice his son to show obedience to Allah. Eid al-Adha in India falls on September 25.
