Howdy y'all, I gathered together some fine new mashup links so you can enjoy the current Autumn crop. As is always the case, mashup release continue hot & heavy with some actually reaching fm, & club listeners. I've even heard some of mine recently on various broadcasts. It's a nice treat. Now, let me treat you to these instant classics I'm sure you will savor.
Andrew Tobias: I Haven't See It Yet, But Here's What I Thought
(And by the way? Speaking of that disastrous war? Hillary voted to authorize it, to give Bush the negotiating stick he sought, taking him at his word to use it only as "a last resort." A stick I don't believe for a minute she would have used in this circumstance had she been President - let alone purely on the strength of a lone intelligence source code-named Curveball. Nor do I believe for a minute the agenda of her first National Security Council meeting, long before 9/11, would have been, as his was, invading Iraq. So this notion that she "was for the war," is a crock.)
Scott Burns: My Supermarket Epiphany (AssetBuilder)
If it is complicated; if it needs to be explained by someone sitting at a lunch table; if it's proprietary; if it's only available from certain companies; and if it makes claims about your future financial health, don't buy it.
"If we want our icons perfect, we could be in for a long wait" Lucy Mangan on accepting the flaws of our heroes (Stylist)
You can see this pattern playing out many times and in many places. Once a woman holds a certain amount of sway, garners a certain level of admiration, the hunt is on to bring her down - usually by finding some oversight or by magnifying some minor flaw, such as Tina Fey's apparent impatience with internet critics when she mocked them in the second series of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, or... um... Hillary Clinton's crackling lungs - that is then used to try and invalidate the whole of their achievement.
Jonas Koffler: "What I Learned From a Stroke at 26: Make Time to Untangle" (NY Times)
I began to own my calendar and live by it. I scheduled everything in it: work commitments, exercise, walks, social gatherings and even sleep time. I continue to do so to this day. I now have a daily mental reset hour that is usually every afternoon around 4 or 5. I walk with my wife, I breathe, I smile, I meditate and say hello to random people and animals, and I write in a journal or draw.
George Campbell Scott (October 18, 1927 - September 22, 1999) was an American stage and film actor, director, and producer. He was best known for his stage work, as well as his portrayal of General George S. Patton in the film Patton, as General Buck Turgidson inStanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, and as Ebenezer Scrooge in Clive Donner's 1984 film A Christmas Carol.
He was the first actor to refuse the Academy Award for Best Actor (for Patton in 1970), having warned the academy months in advance that he would do so on philosophical grounds if he won. Scott believed that every dramatic performance was unique and could not be compared to others.
Randall was first and correct with:
I'm tempted to say Marlon Brando...
but maybe, hmmm... I think it might be
George C. Scott

George C. Scott.
Don't know if he was first
But Brando sorta turned it down. A lovely young first peoples woman
accepted it for him (yes, you detect a Canadian influence.)
Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
George C. Scott for Patton
Oh, I know this one: George C. Scott. I was so impressed by his performance in "Patton."
Dave in Tucson said:
Just a guess - George C. Scott in 1970 for Patton?
Daniel in The City answered:
George C. Scott for Patton.

DJ Useo responded:
Ohh, I don't know this. Is it Oscar "somebody"?
George C. Scott (one of my fa-vo-rite Actors) for his portrayal of...
Yep, Ol' Blood and Guts... Without a doubt, Ike's greatest individual war-maker and biggest pain-in-the-ass...
Twice during my time in the military, Army then Coast Guard, I became closely acquainted with his legacy...
Summer of '71 I went through Army BCT at Ft Knox, Ky. 'Hard Knox' was then the Army's Armor (read: tanks) Training Center beside being a basic training center. The enlisted (EM) Club was named for him and there is a Patton museum on post, too. He was held in rather high esteem there, as it were. Me? I didn't care very much about all that as I was slated to become a medic going in (I actually had a written contract as I had passed the applicable tests beforehand) and had zero interest in those iron coffins...
Fast forwarding to the summer of '83 found me as a Coast Guard Boatswain's Mate Coxswain and qualified Officer of the Day at the Rockland, Maine CG Station. I had a weekend OOD duty when we received a call for assistance from sailboat that foolishly anchored in a rather shallow spot at high tide. The tide began to ebb and before the operator could weigh anchor and move his boat the keel grounded and the boat began to list over. That's not good. I dispatched a boat to rig kedge anchors to his winches to help keep the boat upright until the tide turned and the boat could float free. All worked out well and the operator was very pleased and grateful. His name? Why, lo and behold, it was George S. Patton IV - a retired Army Major General in his own right - Ol' Blood and Gut's son. I spoke with him at length over the radio during the episode and he was very complimentary about our efforts and the boat crew told me later that he was very respectful to them and lauded their efforts... He might have been an Army General, but he was somewhat a lubber for all that... A nice lubber, but a lubber nevertheless... Oh, coincidentally, he commanded the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment (Black Horse) in Vietnam which was my Army boot camp DI's unit while he was there in-country... Small world, huh?
So, there it is... Personally touched by the Patton legacy...
Did you know that Ol' Blood and Guts actually had a high, squeaky, annoying voice? Not at all like Scott's...
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.

In 1996, as the winner of Miss Universe, Alicia Machado had to deal directly with Donald Trump (R-Pinche Güerito). Now, 20 years later, she can't believe he could possibly be her president.
"I never thought and never imagined that 20 years later I would be in this position, in this moment, watching this guy doing stupid things, and stupid comments, and it's so misogynist," Machado, 39, said in a conference call Tuesday afternoon. "It's a really bad dream for me."
The former beauty queen became a U.S. citizen in August largely in part to vote for Hillary Clinton - and against Trump, who referred to her as "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping" after the Venezuela native gained weight following her Miss Universe win at age 19, while Trump was a co-owner of the pageant.
Clinton brought up Machado at the presidential debate Monday night in an effort to show Trump's disdain for women. Trump then doubled down on his comments about Machado in an interview on Fox & Friends Tuesday morning, saying, "She was the worst we ever had. She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem."
"I'm not Miss Universe anymore. I'm a worker, I'm a mother, I have a family, I have my company, and if my story can open eyes in this election, that's what I'm going to try to do," she says. "Share something I think is important - my experience with this person ... maybe can help to have the best president we need to have."

Howard Dean is standing by his controversial Donald Trump tweet from Monday night's debate, saying he doesn't regret it and won't apologize for it.
"Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?" the physician turned politician asked Monday on Twitter about the GOP nominee during the first presidential debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton. Trump's constant sniffing became an instant topic of conversation on social media, sparking memes and the hashtag #TrumpSniffle. One YouTube user even created a mashup of all of his sniffles during the 90-minute showdown.
On Tuesday, the former presidential candidate and governor of Vermont appeared via satellite with MSNBC's Kate Snow to discuss his accusation. While he admitted that he doesn't believe Trump has a cocaine "habit," Dean said his raising of the question is valid.
Dean went on to list four symptoms of abusers of the drug that he witnessed in Trump during the debate: sniffling, grandiosity, delusions and pressured speech.
After months of targeting rival Clinton's health issues and pre-debate speculation over whether or not the Democratic nominee would break into a coughing fit, viewers were quick to question Trump's health when he was heard sniffling moments into the faceoff. The debate, which took place at Hofstra University and was hosted by NBC's Lester Holt, was viewed by at least 80 million people, according to early ratings numbers.
Amy Schumer is the most dangerous celebrity on the internet - and not just because of her no-holds-barred personality.
Intel Security announced Wednesday that the actress-comedian topped its 10th annual list of the most dangerous celebrities online.
A search for the "Trainwreck" and "Inside Amy Schumer" star carries over a 16 percent chance of connecting with a site that carries viruses or malware.
Schumer was followed on Intel's list by Justin Bieber, Carson Daly, Will Smith, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus.
Schumer wasn't the only funny person to make the cut. Other comedians included Chris Hardwick (No. 7), Daniel Tosh (No. 8), Nikki Glaser (No. 15), Kevin Hart (No. 25), Mindy Kaling (No. 30) and Kristen Wig (No. 52).
Hundreds of pieces of art collected by late rock legend David Bowie went on display Monday in New York ahead of an auction, including works by modern greats Jean-Michel Basquiat and Damien Hirst.
Bowie, who died in January from an undisclosed battle with cancer, avidly followed the art world but was discreet about his buying.
"His attitude to collecting represents his attitude on music-making -- he's not afraid to look at things outside the mainstream," said Simon Hucker, senior specialist in modern and post-war British art at Sotheby's which is running the auction.
Bowie, already a musical icon, in the 1990s served on the editorial board of the magazine Modern Painters where he would occasionally write articles.
The core of Bowie's collection was 20th-century British painting but he also took an interest in contemporary African works and so-called outsider art, created by the mentally ill and other people outside traditionally defined art circles.

This photo provided by the Washington State Patrol shows a cardboard cutout of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's head in the passenger seat of a car Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016, in Seattle. A trooper stopped the motorist who was driving with the cardboard likeness in a carpool lane south of Seattle on Highway 167. The stunt netted the driver a $136 ticket.
Canada's parks department on Monday confirmed the discovery of a British exploration ship that vanished during a storied Arctic expedition in 1846.
The statement comes two weeks after scientists from the Arctic Research Foundation announced they had found the ship -- part of a two-vessel expedition during which both disappeared -- submerged but well-preserved beneath 24 meters of water in the Northwest Passage.
"Parks Canada's underwater archaeology team is proud to confirm that the wreck located in Terror Bay on the south-west side of King William Island, Nunavut is that of HMS Terror," the government agency said.
The ill-fated HMS Erebus and HMS Terror left Britain on May 19, 1845 under the command of Sir John Franklin on a mission to discover the Northwest Passage linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
The Erebus was located in 2014, while the Terror's whereabouts remained unknown until now.
An African Penguin walks at Boulders penguin colony in Simonstown, Cape Town, South Africa on September 27, 2016. According to South African National Parks (SANParks) over 60 000 tourists flock to Simonstown to photograph and watch the famous Boulders Beach penguins each year. World Tourism Day is marked worldwide on September 27.
