M Is FOR MASHUP - October 5th, 2016

13 ( or More ) DJ Useo Halloween Mashups

By DJ Useo










Unlike some of more long range projects like "intense psychedelia", or "Summer Booty", which I planned to cease, I'd decided to continue my "Halloween ep" series. 2016 would be the 9th year in a row for them, & I really like Halloween still, so… In late September I woke in a start one morning as I sleepily realized I'd not even started this years version.



















Quickly heading to the computer, I remembered that throughout the year I'd put any mashups that were Halloween-like in a file marked "Halloween Fodder". My check of that file gave me reason to relax as there were 20 Halloween-themed tracks already there. Whew! I only required thirteen, & maybe an unlisted bonus track. I had more than I even needed.



















I liked every one of the mixes in the file, & soon I'd selected the tracks for the new Halloween ep. I'd already sent a Halloween mashup to the group Halloween comp that comes out every year. So, it looked like all my Halloween mashups were done. On October 1st I posted my 2016 Halloween ep, & began looking to other projects.



















In an unexpected move, however, I was asked for the extra tracks I didn't use for my own collection, to be placed instead on the group comp. You know that's a thrill for me, as I love to be seen among my peers on group comps. All of it comes down to more Samhain mashup content for y'all. Look for tracks on my ep with pairings like Megadeth vs Nivana, Michael Jackson vs Oingo Boingo, Gary Numan vs Metrolites, & Creedence Clearwater Revival vs Beatles, plus more.


















On the upcoming Monster Mashup group comp, look for pairings from me such as Beastie Boys vs The Lyres, The Frantics vs Emerson Todd, & Fifth Harmony vs Burial vs Four Tet vs Thom Yorke, among more. Here's the link for the ep preview track "El Corredor Face Down" ( Motley Crue vs Los Peyotes )

     he was jealous because Woody Allen was marrying his daughter

     your mom was hoarding Beanie Babies that she planned to sell to pay for your college tuition.

     people wrote letters to each other on paper

     If Donald Trump wanted to call a woman a fat pig at 3am he had to use a landline

     his next wife hadn't been born yet

     His sons had only killed 3 elephants

Biggest Premiere Since 2008

'SNL'

"Saturday Night Live" had its highest ratings in eight years for a season debut, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The long-running NBC show was surely helped by its spoof of the debate between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, and his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, portrayed by "SNL" cast member Kate McKinnon.

The 42nd season premiere of "SNL" delivered a 29 percent increase over its season opening a year ago.

The show averaged a 5.8 household rating, 15 share in the metered markets, up nearly 30 percent from last year's 4.5/11 for the season opener which aired Oct. 3, 2015 .

It's the highest metered-market household rating for a "SNL" season premiere since Sept. 13, 2008, according to Nielsen, when Michael Phelps hosted with musical guest Lil Wayne, along with Tina Fey's memorable impersonation of Gov. Sarah Palin. That show averaged a 7.5 rating.

Nobel Prize

Physics

British-born scientists David Thouless, Duncan Haldane and Michael Kosterlitz were awarded this year's Nobel Prize in physics on Tuesday for discoveries on unusual states of matter that could result in improved materials for electronics or quantum computers.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said the laureates' work in the 1970s and '80s opened the door to a previously unknown world where matter takes unusual states or phases.

"Their discoveries have brought about breakthroughs in the theoretical understanding of matter's mysteries and created new perspectives on the development of innovative materials," the academy said.

It cited the three for "theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter."

The judges said that there is now hope that "topological materials will be useful for new generations of electronics and superconductors or in future quantum computers."

$400 Mug-Sized Talking Robot

Kirobo Mini

Toyota said Monday it will start selling a mug-sized robot called Kirobo Mini as a chatty companion for its human owners.

The 10 centimetre (four inch) tall robot will go on sale next year in Japan for 39,800 yen ($400) after a bigger version of the doe-eyed Kirobo -- roughly the size of a chihuahua -- became the first android to converse with an astronaut in space.

Toyota is usually associated with cars, but it has been investing millions in robotics and Kirobo is its first commercial foray into the sector.

The world's biggest automaker said the robot -- which can carry on simple conversations and respond to emotions -- could help it develop vehicle technology.

"We want to address growing issues in society where people have no one to talk to," said Moritaka Yoshida, a senior managing officer at Toyota.

Earthquake Swarm

San Andreas

A swarm of small quakes near the San Andreas fault spurred officials in California to issue an earthquake alert for residents of Southern California.

Based on the swarm activity, the risk of an earthquake of magnitude 7.0 or greater in Southern California shot up to between 1 in 300 and 1 in 100 over the weekend, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The Office of Emergency Services in California issued an alert that is in effect until tomorrow (Oct. 4).

"I wouldn't say it's over until it's really over. We sort of just gradually get back to background, and it could tick back up later after we think it's settled down," said Kenneth Hudnut, a USGS research geophysicist in Pasadena, California.

On an average day, there is a 1 in 10,000 chance of a magnitude 7 or greater quake, meaning the risk is temporarily elevated 100 times above baseline, said Morgan Page, a research geophysicist with the USGS in Pasadena, California.

It turns out, tiny earthquakes increase earthquake risk because they increase the overall earthquake frequency on a given fault, and because smaller temblors on cross-faults situated perpendicular to the main San Andreas fault can set off a larger one on the main fault, USGS scientists said.

Secretly Scanned All Customer Emails

Yahoo

Yahoo Inc last year secretly built a custom software program to search all of its customers' incoming emails for specific information provided by U.S. intelligence officials, according to people familiar with the matter.

The company complied with a classified U.S. government demand, scanning hundreds of millions of Yahoo Mail accounts at the behest of the National Security Agency or FBI, said three former employees and a fourth person apprised of the events.

Some surveillance experts said this represents the first case to surface of a U.S. Internet company agreeing to a spy agency's request by searching all arriving messages, as opposed to examining stored messages or scanning a small number of accounts in real time.

It is not known what information intelligence officials were looking for, only that they wanted Yahoo to search for a set of characters. That could mean a phrase in an email or an attachment, said the sources, who did not want to be identified.

According to two of the former employees, Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer's decision to obey the directive roiled some senior executives and led to the June 2015 departure of Chief Information Security Officer Alex Stamos, who now holds the top security job at Facebook Inc .

Opposes Limits To Privacy

Intelligence Community

The U.S. intelligence community does not support pending congressional legislation that would curtail the authority of a privacy watchdog that advises the president on government surveillance programs, according to an unclassified memo seen by Reuters.

The position amounts to a rare show of support for the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, or PCLOB, from the spy agencies it is designed to oversee.

It came in a letter to the leaders of congressional intelligence committees that outlined opposition to several sections of an annual intelligence funding bill awaiting action in Congress.

President Barack Obama's senior advisers would recommend a veto of the bill if Congress does not address the concerns raised, the letter said.

The intelligence community "strongly opposes" part of the proposed legislation seeking to limit the jurisdiction of PCLOB to the privacy rights of Americans, and not foreigners, the letter, signed by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, reads.

Appeals Court Rules Against

Pence

Indiana Governor Mike Pence, the Republican nominee for U.S. vice president, lost another round in federal court on Monday in his bid to keep refugees fleeing Syria's civil war from resettling in his state.

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago affirmed a lower-court ruling that Pence's order seeking to bar state agencies from helping the resettlement of Syrian immigrants discriminates against the refugees based on their national origin.

Pence was among more than 25 U.S. governors, mostly Republicans, who urged President Barack Obama to stop resettling refugees fleeing Syria's civil war after November attacks by extremists in Paris that killed 130.

Appeals Court Judge Richard Posner, writing for the three-judge panel that sided unanimously against Pence, said the governor's assertions of a national security threat were presented "without evidence" and amounted to "nightmare speculation."

All three appellate panel members are Republican appointees, including Judge Diane Sykes, who Pence's running mate, Donald Trump, has said he would nominate to the U.S. Supreme Court if he wins the Nov. 8 presidential election.

Foundation Is A Laundromat

T-rump

New York's attorney general ordered Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's (R-Pendejo) charitable foundation to immediately stop fundraising in the state, warning that a failure to do so would be a "continuing fraud."

For Trump, the cease-and-desist order was the latest in a series of blows that has sent his campaign reeling. The New York businessman and his aides spent much of the weekend dealing with the fallout from a New York Times report that said Trump may have avoided paying federal income taxes for almost 20 years.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office said the Donald J. TrumpFoundation was violating a state law requiring charitable organizations that solicit outside donations to register with the office's Charities Bureau.

The order followed a series of reports in The Washington Post that suggested improprieties by the foundation, including using its funds to settle legal disputes involving Trump businesses.

While again putting Trump's campaign on the defensive, the order could also undercut his efforts to make the Clinton Foundation, the family charity of Democratic presidential rivalHillary Clinton, a primary target in his campaign against her for the Nov. 8 election.
