M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - June 1st, 2016

Bootleggers Release Literal Mashups

By DJ Useo

The loosely affiliated "Institute Of Bootleggers" ( ) has released their latest mashup collection called "Literal Mashups". The album is variety style blends with a healthy smattering of club tracks.

All the mixers on this project have advanced mixing skills. Many will seem new or unknown to the majority of you, while still retaining the ability to mix like a long standing pro. Most are long standing pros.

Among the fifteen contributors are such distinguished international home producers as DeeM, ToToM, DJ Energy, Vincenzo Caira & Francesco Lupo, & The Homogenic Chaos. The many others are not to be sneezed at, either, & not just because that would be disgusting. lol.

The styles roll from club mashups like Deckmann's "We Are The Left Behinds", to hardcore like ToToM's "Born Free to Self Destruct", to AtoZ's classic rock "You Made It Weird Again ( Not Feelin' Crispy )". Thus, you go from Paris Bohm to Nine Inch Nails to Steely Dan, while also going from Felicity to M.I.A. to Pete Holmes ( ! ) in the space of a disc's time. A sweet journey, indeed.

DJ Surda provides the incredible "Heroes For One Day (Video Edit)" ( Asaf Avidan & The Mojos ( Wankelmut Remix ) vs David Bowie ) as the albums preview video track ( ) . I guarantee once you experience it, you'll want the entire album.

There's mirror links for the collection here ( ) It would be appreciated if you shared the link on your favorite social platform. We need the thrill of knowing you liked it enough to say so, because we sure ain't gonna get any money out of it. Lmao.

Next week, I have one awesome collection chock full of the most well known names in the "scene". It's one of the "biggies" that comes out every year. Come back in seven days for more mashup thrills. - Konrad

Josh Marshall: Trump and the Weaponization of Military Sacrifice (TPM)
The word 'fascism' gets thrown around casually these days. Better words for this are probably 'militarism' and 'authoritarianism'. But this use of betrayed sacrifice as a weapon against dissent - and more specifically against non-authoritarian political movements - is precisely the imagery and narrative far-right groups in Germany used in the aftermath of World War I and through the Nazi rise to power in the early 1930s. In fact, the weaponization of betrayed military sacrifice is a common, almost universal feature of rightist political movements.

In the months since she took her White House role, public information about the companies importing Ivanka Trump goods to the U.S. has become harder to find.

Even less is known about her manufacturers. Trump's brand, which is still owned by the first daughter and presidential adviser, declined to disclose the information.

Trivia Question of the Day

What country produces the most ginger?


Send your answer to Marty

Trivia Question from Yesterday

This herbaceous perennial was often referred to by the nickname "pie plant" in many 19th-century cookbooks. What do we call it today?

       Rhubarb                                                      Source

Rhubarb (Rheum rhabarbarum) is a species of plant in the family Polygonaceae. It is a herbaceous perennial growing from short, thick rhizomes. It produces large poisonous leaves that are somewhat triangular, with long fleshy edible stalks and small flowers grouped in large compound leafy greenish-white to rose-red inflorescences.

For cooking, the stalks are often cut into small pieces and stewed (boiled in water) with added sugar, until soft. Little water is added, as rhubarb stalks already contain a great deal of water. Rhubarb should be processed and stored in containers which are unaffected by residual acid content, such as glass or stainless steel. Spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are sometimes added. Stewed rhubarb or rhubarb sauce, like applesauce, is usually eaten cold. Pectin, or sugar with pectin, can be added to the mixture to make jams.

A similar preparation, thickened with cornstarch or flour, is used as filling for rhubarb pie, tarts, and crumbles, leading to the nickname "pie plant", by which it is referred to in many 19th-century cookbooks, as well as by American author Laura Ingalls Wilder in her short novel The First Four Years. The term "pie plant" is still used regionally in the U.S.        Source

Uses an Android Phone

Bill Gates

A billionaire has joined the masses.

Bill Gates, co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, revealed in a weekend interview with Fox "News" Sunday that he is a recent convert to the software of a long-time business rival. Not Apple, but Google.

"I happen to use all Windows-based PCs," Gates told Fox anchor Chris Wallace before making his handset confession. "The phone that I have, I recently did switch to an Android phone," he continued, noting with a puckish grin that it runs "a lot of Microsoft software."

Microsoft's ill-fated foray into the mobile world is the stuff of legend. In addition to its blighted multibillion dollar Nokia acquisition in 2014, the company has phased out support for its unpopular Windows Phone in recent months.

Gates's admission places him in the same camp as most consumers. Android is the world's most popular mobile operating system with more than 80% market share, according to market research firm IDC. The Apple iPhone's share has fluctuated in the teens for the past several quarters, while Microsoft's penetration is sub-1%.

Allowing Women To Drive

Saudi Arabia

Women in Saudi Arabia will be allowed to drive, the government announced on Tuesday - ending their reign as the only nation in the world where women were forbidden from getting behind the wheel of a car.

The news was announced on state television and in a simultaneous media event in Washington, highlighting the damage that the policy has done to the kingdom's international reputation and its hopes for a public relations benefit from the reform.

While there is no formal law banning women from driving, the government refuses to issue them permits. That will now change under the royal decree, which ordered the formation of a ministerial body to give advice within 30 days and then implement the order by June 2018.

The milestone was greeted with jubilation on social media, with the hashtag "Saudi women can drive" being used in a flood of tweets.

100 Square-Mile Iceberg Breaks Off


Over the weekend, an iceberg broke off from a glacier in western Antarctica measuring about 100 square miles. In 2015 a berg more than twice the size of the one that broke off this weekend also broke off. And in 2013 one even larger broke off. With the most recent break researchers are beginning to worry that it signifies a bigger issue, one where the glacier will continue to lose more and more ice in the future.

The break over the weekend was tweeted by Stef Lhermitte, an assistant professor at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, he posted a photo of the large chunk of ice that had calved from the glacier.

Since then Lhermitte has continued tweeting updates on the glacier along with comparisons of this break to those of the past. The calving is occurring very close to the same spot each time it happens, Lhermitte noted.

The Pine Island Glacier is losing roughly 45 billion tons of ice each year, contributing about 1 millimeter of global sea level rise over eight years. Should the glacier continue to melt and break the way it has this rise would continue.

After the 2015 calving event, researchers at the Ohio State University found that the rift causing the ice to break off was occurring inland rather than where the end of the ice met the water. They saw that a rift had formed 20 miles inland starting in 2013 and as it moved over two years it neared the edge and cause the ice to then break off and set a giant iceberg into the ocean for nearly two weeks.

Kept Calling The Prime Minister of Spain 'President'


President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Pendejo) repeatedly called the prime minister of Spain, Mariano Rajoy, "president" during a joint press conference on Tuesday.

Trump called Rajoy president at least three times during their press conference, including during his introductory remarks.

Trump also asked the gathered reporters if there was a question for "the president," pointing at Rajoy. The reporter who asked the next question addressed Rajoy as "prime minister."

The White House also called Rajoy Spain's president in a tweet before the press conference.

Using NFL Controversy To Raise Money


President-for-now Trump (R-Crooked) has been accused of "disrespectfully" capitalising on the NFL national anthem controversy to raise funds for the Republican Party.

This weekend, a number of NFL players knelt during the national anthem, which is traditionally played at the start of every match.

The symbolic act was intended as a protest against racial inequality in the US, and led to a tirade of tweets from the President calling for the "unpatriotic" players to be sacked by their managers.

On Monday, the President's staff sent an email to subscribers asking them to "stand with Donald Trump and the American flag"- by donating to the administration.

The email reads: "When the national anthem plays, President Trump proudly stands and places his hand over his heart out of respect for our flag, our country and our heroes."

Surge To Record High


Sexually transmitted diseases surged to a record high in the United States last year, with more than two million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis nationwide, officials said Tuesday.

This was "the highest number ever," said the annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report released today by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Most of the new cases -- 1.6 million in 2016 -- involved chlamydia, a bacterial infection that affects both men and women.

Gonorrhea also increased among men and women last year, but the steepest rise was among men (22 percent), said the report.

Syphilis cases numbered 28,000, a rate that increased nearly 18 percent from 2015 to 2016.



One-Third Of Interior Employees


Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke (R-Fascist) said Monday that nearly one-third of employees at his department are not loyal to him and President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Corrupt), adding that he is working to change the department's regulatory culture to be more business friendly.

Zinke, a former Navy SEAL, said he knew when he took over the 70,000-employee department in March that, "I got 30 percent of the crew that's not loyal to the flag."

In a speech to an oil industry group, Zinke compared Interior to a pirate ship that captures "a prized ship at sea and only the captain and the first mate row over" to finish the mission.

Besides moving employees, Zinke said he wants to speed up permits for oil drilling, logging and other energy development that now can take years.

"Fracking is proof that God's got a good sense of humor and he loves us," Zinke said without explanation.

To Skip Monsanto Summit

U.S. Scientists

Monsanto Co invited dozens of weed scientists to a summit this week to win backing for a controversial herbicide but many have declined, threatening the company's efforts to convince regulators the product is safe to use.

Monsanto faces a barrage of lawsuits over its dicamba herbicide and risks of tighter restrictions on its use, after the chemical drifted away from where it was sprayed this summer and damaged nearby crops unable to tolerate it.

Arkansas and Missouri suffered the most complaints of U.S. states with damage linked to dicamba. Weed scientists from the two states declined to attend the summit on concerns about Monsanto's response to the incident.

The company plans to present data at the summit that it says show user error was behind the damage, contrary to academics' findings that dicamba products can vaporize and move off target under certain conditions in a process known as volatilization.

Missing will be Kevin Bradley, a University of Missouri plant sciences professor who has tracked the number of crop acres nationwide that have been hurt by dicamba sprayings. Bradley said he believed Monsanto was not willing to discuss volatilization.
