M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - March 25th, 2015


By DJ Useo

Yes, the album I wrote about a couple weeks back, AudioBoots WORLDS GREATEST CLUB MASHUPS ( ) has now appeared! The "tweaking" of the tracks, art, & texts had to be immaculate, & that took extra time. Now that the 3-disc set is available, it's obvious the extra attention to detail paid off. Y'know, when we announced this project, the idea was to limit contributors to a mere two submissions. Then, the tracks started arriving. I quickly found myself confronted with as many as 6 offerings from one person with each being too great to refuse.

Thus, the planned 2-disc set swelled to three. In addition, there's soon going to be a long mix of each disc created by three gifted deejays. I've heard the first long mix already, ( from DJ MXR ) & I was powerful impressed. I realize that there's an offhand chance that some of you reading this column ( you are still there, right? ) might not be into club music. Well, we planned for that by making the tracks irresistible. Also, awesome contributor AtoZ assembled a video for his track "Gonna Make You Work It Out" ( Beatles & Friends vs C & C Music Factory ) that opens the album ( ).

Using the expression "assembled a video for his track" actually doesn't describe what a great experience the video is. The audio mix is already, like, the coolest. AtoZ does so much with established imagery in this gem that you'll smile, & you'll definitely dance. No doubt that more AudioBoots WGCM videos will appear soon. I hope you'll take a gander at the super page AudioBoots Co-Owner Chocomang created for the release ( ). There's some cool visual effects, & you can stream, or download the entire album! Forum janitor BastardWhitey also helped with something ( but I forget what?! )

The HUGE list of tracks can also be seen here ( ) There's great source artists abounding all over this marvelous collection. Listen for bits of the Sugarhill Gang, Human League, Stevie Wonder, Gloria Gaynor, & many more that you can read & hear from here ( ) There's plans for two different radio stations to broadcast the entire 3 hours. I'll clue y'all in when that happens.

It's an amazing thrill when you can gather together such talent as ToToM, DJ Spider,Chocomang,Oki,

DJ MXR, Tweylo, DRA'man, DJ GAYA, DJ Rudec,AtoZ,Boots Leg Pharm,DJ Useo, Zigmund Fraud, and Lizard. Big thanks to everybody. We've included links to our sites, in case you want more, and you will!

So, that's part of our plan to celebrate a year of our new mashup forum AudioBoots ( ).

More to come soon! Please resume your non-bootleg music reading at this time.

Watch President Clinton outline the state of the world as he opens yesterday's session of the Clinton Global Initiative.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What venue is associated with the military march "Entrance of the Gladiators" op. 68 (or "Entry of the Gladiators")?

       Circuses                                                      Source

"Entrance of the Gladiators" op. 68 or "Entry of the Gladiators" is a military march composed in 1897 by the Czech composer Julius Fucík. He originally titled it "Grande Marche Chromatique," reflecting the use of chromatic scales throughout the piece, but changed the title based on his personal interest in the Roman Empire.

In 1910 Canadian composer Louis-Philippe Laurendeau arranged "Entrance of the Gladiators" for a small band under the title "Thunder and Blazes", and sold this version throughout North America. It was during this period that the song gained lasting popularity as a screamer march for circuses, often used to introduce clowns. Today it is known mainly by this association, even though the title and composer are relatively obscure. Laurendeau's version was also transcribed for fairground organs.        Source

   What can you say about a military march that came to be associated with...the circus? "The March Of The Gladiators" twisted into a theme for clowns and subjugated beasts. Could it be sweet irony? Is existence itself a pathetic joke personified by the traveling side show? Do I have any idea what the fuck I'm talking about? Absolutely not, but that won't stop me. However, the seventh pint of the night will.

Announce Rescheduled Tour Dates

The Who

The Who have announced the rescheduled dates for their axed fall tour, now kicking off in February 2016.

The band said Tuesday that "The Who Hits 50!" tour will start Feb. 27 in Detroit. The band's fall tour was cancelled this month as lead singer Roger Daltrey recovers from viral meningitis.

Tickets for the originally scheduled shows will be honoured at the new dates.

The tour, celebrating The Who's 50th anniversary, also will visit New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto. It wraps on May 29 in Las Vegas.

Twitter Debut

Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden has come in from the cold - on Twitter.

Snowden, a former National Security Agency contractor who leaked details about the U.S. government's massive surveillance programs, started a Twitter account on Tuesday from exile in Russia with a simple handle - @snowden.

He attracted more than 171,000 followers in about an hour and had 548,000 about 4-1/2 hours later. But Snowden was following only one other Twitter account: his former employer's.

Snowden's initial tweet had been "Can you hear me now?" The message, a take-off on a cellphone provider television commercial, was retweeted 25,000 times within an hour. In his Twitter profile, Snowden described himself by saying, "I used to work for the government. Now I work for the public."

In his earlier hours on Twitter, Snowden exchanged tweets with prominent astrophysicist and radio talk show host Neil deGrasse Tyson, who had encouraged Snowden to try Twitter during an interview on his show this month.

Nation's 1st Marijuana Resort

Santee Sioux

The Santee Sioux tribe has already proven its business acumen, running a successful casino, a 120-room hotel and a 240-head buffalo ranch on the plains of South Dakota.

But those enterprises have not been immune to competition and the lingering effects of the Great Recession, so the small tribe of 400 is undertaking a new venture - opening the nation's first marijuana resort on its reservation. The experiment could offer a new money-making model for tribes nationwide seeking economic opportunities beyond casinos.

Santee Sioux leaders plan to grow their own pot and sell it in a smoking lounge that includes a nightclub, arcade games, bar and food service, and eventually, slot machines and an outdoor music venue.

"We want it to be an adult playground," tribal President Anthony Reider said. "There's nowhere else in American that has something like this."

The project, according to the tribe, could generate up to $2 million a month in profit, and work is already underway on the growing facility. The first joints are expected to go on sale Dec. 31 at a New Year's Eve party.

Search Gains New Momentum


The search for ancient Egypt's Queen Nefertiti in an alleged hidden chamber in King Tut's tomb gained new momentum as Egypt's Antiquities Minister said Tuesday he is now more convinced a queen's tomb may lay hidden behind King Tutankhamun's final resting place.

While touring the burial sites of Tutankhamun and other pharaohs in Luxor's famed Valley of the Kings with British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves, Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty said he now thinks King Tut's 3,300 year-old pharaonic mausoleum probably contains at least one hidden chamber.

Reeves theorized that Tutankhamun, popularly known as King Tut, who died at the age of 19, may have been rushed into an outer chamber of what was originally Nefertiti's tomb.

High-resolution images of King Tut's tomb "revealed several very interesting features which look not at all natural, features like very, very straight lines which are 90 degrees to the ground, positioned so as to correspond with other features within the tomb," Reeves said during the visit.

Reeves said the walls could conceal two unexplored doorways, one of which perhaps leads to Nefertiti's tomb. He also argues that the design of the tomb suggests it was built for a queen, rather than a king.



Wake-up Call


Groups Seek End To All Drilling

Arctic Ocean

Royal Dutch Shell's decision to end its quest for oil in the Arctic waters off Alaska sparked jubilation among environmental activists, who said Tuesday that they will seize the opportunity to seek an end to all drilling to in the region.

But while Shell's move is a definite setback for oil companies, it does not mean offshore drilling is dead or that the Arctic Ocean has any greater protection now than it had last week.

Shell announced Monday that it would abandon exploration in U.S. Arctic waters "for the foreseeable future" after a well drilled this summer in the Chukchi Sea off the Alaskan coast failed to find natural gas and oil in sufficient quantities.

The Department of Interior continues to evaluate Arctic-specific exploratory drilling regulations. The leases that allow oil companies to explore for crude run through 2017 in the Beaufort Sea and through 2020 in the Chukchi Sea, and corporations have sought extensions.

Acknowledge Polygamy


The Mormon church's renovated history museum set to reopen this week features a small and surprising display about an uncomfortable part of the faith's history that for generations has been glossed over: polygamy.

The display is tucked inside a modern revamped museum that tells the story of how the church was founded and formed in the eastern U.S. from 1820-1846 before Mormons trekked across the country to settle in Utah. Inside a special 220-seat theater, visitors can watch a theatrical dramatization of founder Joseph Smith's much-dissected visit from God and Jesus in 1820 in the woods of upstate New York that led to the foundation of the religion.

The decision by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to provide more details about what is known as this "first vision" and acknowledge the early days of polygamy - a practice that has been outlawed by the mainstream church since 1890 - marks the latest illustration of the religion's push for transparency over secrecy when it comes to its history and beliefs, religious scholars said.

The new polygamy exhibit features the headline "A Test of Faith: The Saints and Plural Marriage" above an interactive touch screen with stories of men and women who practiced polygamy. Embedded in the wall is Smith's hand-written account of a revelation he received from God to practice polygamy. It has never been displayed before, museum director Alan Johnson said.



Woman Denied Entry


A Utah woman was denied entry to the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre near Toronto because she didn't have any children with her.

Alice DeFriez told CTV News she was up visiting when she saw the alluring brochure at her hotel.

She told CTV she runs a Lego Club out of the library in her hometown of Heber City, Utah, and even hosts an annual building contest.

According to the LEGOLAND website, children under the age of 17 must be accompanied by a supervisor who's at least 18.

"Adults (18+) will not be admitted without a child, with the exception of Adult Only Nights," the disclaimer reads.

Rare 'City Map' Restored

Byzantine-Era Mosaic

A rare Byzantine-era floor mosaic discovered in Israel that depicts streets and buildings on a "city map" of a place in Egypt will be presented to the public Thursday after having been restored.

The mosaic of about 3.5 metres (11.4 feet) by 3.5 metres served as the floor of a church that no longer exists, the Israel Antiquities Authority said Tuesday.

It said Christian tradition holds that the Hebrew prophet Habakkuk was buried in Chortaso, and the 1,500-year-old mosaic might refer to the origin of the church's congregation.

The mosaic was discovered two years ago in an industrial zone in the southern city of Qiryat Gat.

In Memory

Frankie Ford

Rock and roll and rhythm and blues singer Frankie Ford, whose 1959 hit "Sea Cruise" brought him international fame, is dead at the age of 76.

The Jefferson Parish Coroner's Office says Ford died Monday of natural causes.

Mike Shepherd, head of the Louisiana music Hall of Fame, says Ford had been ill for some time.

Ford had sung since childhood. His adopted parents, Vincent and Anna Guzzo of Gretna, brought him to New York when he was five to perform on the "Ted Mack Amateur Hour."

Shepherd says Ford was among three white singers called to Cosimo (KOS-mo) Matassa's New Orleans studio in the late 1950s to cover songs by local black musicians whose records got less airtime because of racial discrimination.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
