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
( vimeo.com/155602473 ) . I guarantee once you experience it, you'll want the entire album.
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.
ERIKA KINETZ: Ivanka Trump Clothing Was Exported By Chinese Government-Owned Company (TPM)
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. Information that once routinely appeared in private trade tracking data has vanished, leaving the identities of companies involved in 90 percent of shipments unknown. 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.
Eric Reid: Why Colin Kaepernick and I Decided to Take a Knee (NY Times)
After hours of careful consideration, and even a visit from Nate Boyer, a retired Green Beret and former N.F.L. player, we came to the conclusion that we should kneel, rather than sit, the next day during the anthem as a peaceful protest. We chose to kneel because it's a respectful gesture. I remember thinking our posture was like a flag flown at half-mast to mark a tragedy.
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.
Randall was first, and correct, with:
Rhubarb was once known as pie plant. That's a new one on me.
Alan J answered:
I guess rhubarb.
Rhubarb was known as the "pie plant." The leaves are poisonous, so only the stems are eaten. It's a pretty plant, with the green leaves and red stems. My favorite pie is rhubarb-strawberry; it's sweet and tart.

I call it the stuff I use to filch from my neighbors as a kid to chomp on raw. I knew when it was ripe enough to eat. Learned that early on, I'm sayin'...
But, you know it as rhubarb... and, yeah, I 'fess up to filching my neighbors raspberries, grapes, and whatnot, too... All was fair game to this, then, early 60's hungry feral kid.
Reflection Moment - The thought just came to me that we boys were like those hobbits, Pippin and Merry, raiding that farmer's field. Sure, and we ran like they did being as we being chased and verbal chastised... Hobbit boys... Yep, that was us...
Memo to David of Moon Valley: Many thanks for your kind words! I did have many interesting experiences as a Coastguardsman that I do hold close and like to share with ya'll (yeah, this Michigander occasionally does say, "y'all".

Anyway, back to the 'Hooligan Navy' (an epithet attached to the CG by the Navy in WWII. We still relish it). Here's a link for ya about a SAR case I did as a Coxswain in Maine during a winter nor'easter blizzard...
Ordeal on Bay Ledge Buoy - New England Today
The article was first printed in Yankee magazine and later by Reader's Digest. Ya know, the 'Drama In True Life' thing. RD called me before they published it for my verification of the details (many were left out... like how frickin' scary it was out there going thru what my crew and I did)... I remember my Chief Bosun yelling at me from his office as I walked by, "Hey, Boats! Reader's Digest wants to talk to you on the phone!"...
Then there was a time in the early 80's where I had to look for Teddy Kennedy who was trying to hide-out in a big sailboat amidst the islands coves of Penobscot Bay one summer's weekend.
Kinda like this... it's nice...
Dude wouldn't answer ship-to-shore calls from his office and they REALLY wanted to talk to him. We found him... He called back... and the whole 'affair' really annoyed us.
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.

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%.
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.
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.
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.
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.
