M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - October 7th, 2015

DJ Useo Halloween Mashups a La 2015

By DJ Useo

I looked at my unreleased files. There were many Halloween mashups. Very many.

Having forgotten there were so many waiting for release, I had made other new ones.

Now I had thirty-three Halloween mashups. My needed amount was only thirteen tracks.

DJ Petrushka went through the thirty-three with me. She does not care much for Halloween music. Lol.

After pruning, the result was the desired thirteen for my annual Halloween ep.

With many months left till Halloween, I started new Halloween mashups for the annual group compilation.

While feeling the seasonal vibes intensely, I came up with seven more Halloween mashups.

Two of the new ones went to the group comp. The other five bumped off tracks from the ep thirteen.

I couldn't resist adding an unlisted bonus track, so there are actually fourteen cuts. Tradition continues.

The tracks are intended to be appealing, while still expressing various seasonal themes.

The covers all maintain a designer toy horror style. Perfect for purchasing, & establishing Halloween displays.

Please enjoy the nsfw language purposely included.

Preview track "Exothermic Reaction Nightmare" ( Avenged Sevenfold vs Skream )

Paul Krugman: The Paranoid Style in G.O.P. Politics (NY Times Column)
Republicans are an authoritarian regime in waiting.

Greg Sargent: Trump's ugly attacks on Blasey Ford could save the Senate for Republicans. Really. (Washington Post)
With Brett M. Kavanaugh now on the Supreme Court, Republicans are coalescing around a new closing argument in the midterms: The Democratic response to this whole affair shows them to be lawless, out of control and unfit to govern, so you should keep power in the hands of the GOP, which heroically took on the angry mob in defense of the true victim in this situation: Brett M. Kavanaugh.

Andrew Tobias: What Dr. Ford and Justice Kavanaugh Have In Common
They both volunteered for polygraph examinations (except for Brett). They both passed their polygraph (except for Brett). Neither one had a single thing to gain by lying (except for Brett). And Susan Collins is certain they're both telling the truth.
It's just that Dr. Ford, someplace along the line, forgot who scarred her for life. It would be so terribly unfair, Susan Collins believes, not to give Brett this lifetime appointment.

Paul Waldman: Republicans are already spinning their own myth about the Kavanaugh controversy (Washington Post)
Trump calls Democrats' opposition to Kavanaugh 'atrocious' and 'a hoax.'

Josh Marshall: What Needs to be Done in the Wake of Kavanaugh's Confirmation (TPM)
There are two conclusions I'd draw from this. First, the problems with the court didn't start with Kavanaugh this week or even Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. They started in 1976. Secondly, if liberals have any dreams of moving American beyond the New Deal toward a genuine social democracy, they need to find a way to overturn the spate of campaign finance rulings from the court and reinstitute a genuinely democratic reading of the first amendment in their place. If it takes packing (or threatening to pack the court, as Franklin Roosevelt did), that's fine. It's within the bounds of the Constitution.

Josh Marshall: Unpacking Senate GOPs Ludicrous Theory of the Case (TPM)
Let's start with Senator Susan Collins today on CNN. Collins told Dana Bash: "I do not believe that Brett Kavanaugh was her assailant. I do believe that she was assaulted. I don't know by whom. I'm not certain when." I focus on Collins only because it is a simple, clear statement. But the great majority of Senate Republicans have made some version of the same argument. So let's just say it. This is a preposterous.

Erin Durkin: "'She just ended her career': Taylor Swift's first foray into politics sparks praise and fury" (The Guardian)
Endorsements of Democrats draw support but also criticism from white supremacists, rightwing fans and mainstream Republicans.

Nadja Sayej: "John Waters: 'I never wanted to be a cult film-maker'" (The Guardian)
The Hairspray and Serial Mom director talks about exhibiting his provocative artwork and why he enjoys ridiculing the art world

Jonathan Jones: Why putting £1m through the shredder is Banksy's greatest work (The Guardian)
Art is being choked to death by money. The only rebellion left is for artists to bite the hands that feed them - as Banksy appears to have done on Friday night.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Swarm and cloud are collective nouns used to describe a group of flies. What is the more appropriate term to describe a group of flies?

       Business                                                      Source

The collective noun for flies is the word you would use to describe a group of flies.

We have identified the following word(s) that you could call a group of flies:
Used in a sentence, you could say "Look at the business of flies", where "business" is the collective noun that means group.        Source

And another Source

Mark. was first, and correct, with:
   It is a business of flies.

Leo in Boise said:
   It's called a business.

Micki wrote:
   A group of flies (or ferrets) is called a business.

Alan J answered:
   A business of flies.

zorch responded:
   A group of flies is a business. It's a banquet if you're a frog.

Dave replied:
   Business. Flies are up to a nasty business usually. If there is one thing more annoying than one fly, its two flies, so I hate the concept of a business of flies.

Deborah wrote:
   I have no idea. I checked with and their answer is business. A business of flies? That makes as much sense as a murder of crows. No crow murders another, although the group's constant noise may inspire you to want to murder them.
  Who comes up with these names, and why do they persist?

Jim from CA, retired to ID, said:

Adam answered:
   A Business of Flies

Billy in Cypress responded:
   The other collective noun I found in my research was the word "business" in addition to "cloud" and "swarm". I have never heard it used to describe flies, but some how it seems appropriate, with all the pop-up ads, unsolicited phone calls, annoying emails, etc, etc, etc.

Kevin K., in Washington, DC, replied:
   I like a business of flies.

Cal in Vermont said:
   A business of flies. Pr*sdent Orange Tyrant fancies himself as the very, very best businessman, so shall he be the Lord Of The...Flies!

Joe S     wrote:
   The correct term is cloud, because that's the way it is. Did I ever tell you my whale story? If I did, and I'm sure I have, then you know why that's the way it is. If you have never heard my whale story then I will tell you, but not tonight. Some other night when I have more time, and I may tell you how I avoided a traffic ticket for a six month expired license plate today.

from Bruce


• Sometimes, fathers and stepfathers turn out to be feminists because their daughters or stepdaughters want to do something other people don't want them to do. As a teenager, Sandy Smith wanted to ride bulls in the rodeo. Many cowboys would say things such as, "Girls can't ride bucking stock." However, her stepfather told her, "Sandy, at your age a girl's coordination is as good as a guy's. Don't take any lip from them - they're just afraid you're going to show them up." Young Sandy did as she wished and rode bucking bulls in rodeos.

• The father of Seattle Mariner Alex Rodriguez left his family when Alex was young, but fortunately Alex' best friend's father, J.D. Arteaga, Sr., watched over him. Mr. Arteaga recognized young Alex' baseball talent when Alex was 11 years old, and he helped take good care of him, including taking him to games and buying him baseball equipment. In fact, Mr. Arteaga died of a heart attack while watching his son and Alex play 10th grade football. Mr. Rodriguez says, "He was the father I didn't have. Everything he gave to his son, he gave to me."

• When Ruthie, the nine-year-old daughter of Quaker humorist Tom Mullen, had a bike accident that resulted in six stitches in her chin, Mr. Mullen was surprised that she didn't cry. He was further surprised when Ruthie told the doctor, "My daddy told me once when I was hurt not to be a crybaby!" Worried that he might have taught her the wrong thing, Mr. Mullen explained that it is OK to cry when you have an accident that requires six stitches. Ruthie listened, then told her father, "It's all right, daddy. You can cry if you want to."

• The biological father of country comedian Jerry Clower was an alcoholic who abandoned his family. Once, Mr. Clower was criticizing his father when a black woman who was doing the ironing told him, "Boy, you'd better not criticize your daddy. The Bible says to honor your father and your mother. They're the ones that birthed you. It don't say honor your father and your mother if they don't drink whiskey. It just says honor your father and mother."

• When performance artist Nicky Paraiso was in his third year at New York University, he played the part of a homicidal maniac in the play Boy in the Straight-Backed Chair by Ronald Tavel. As his character killed actors on stage, he could hear his father in the audience telling people, "That's my son! He's the star!"

• When Maria Montessori became interested in education, she wished to study a book by Edouard Séguin about disabled children. She hunted for the book in Rome, but could not find it. Finally an old, dirty, musty copy was found in New York. Before allowing her to read the book, her father disinfected it.

• Comedian Pat Henning once toured England, then many years and a toupee later, toured England again. The toupee did its job - theater managers told him that he was much funnier than his father had been.

• A.E.P. Wall of the Catholic Review once received a letter bearing the salutation, "Dear Father Wall." He sent the letter back with this notation: "I cannot be a Father. I have three children."

2019 Nominees

Rock Hall of Fame

To be eligible for this year's ballot, each nominee's first single or album had to released in 1993 or earlier. Several of the nominees have appeared on previous ballots, but this is first appearance for Def Leppard, Devo, Prine, Roxy Music, Nicks and Rundgren. Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine both made their debut appearance last year in their first period of eligibility. This is the fifth appearance for Kraftwerk and LL Cool J, the fourth for the Zombies, the third for Janet Jackson and Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and the second for the Cure.

A voting pool of more than 1,000 artists, historians, journalists and members of the music industry will select the new class, and once again fans will have a chance to be a part of the process. They can vote on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's website or visit the museum in Cleveland and make a selection at an interactive kiosk.

As in recent years, the Hall of Fame has announced the individual members of each band that will be inducted. The current lineup of Def Leppard is listed along with the late Steve Clark and original guitarist Pete Willis.

Body Language Helped Determine Her Vote

Heidi Heitkamp

The voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was certainly a close call. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, the first woman from North Dakota elected to the U.S. Senate, was planning on voting to confirm him, reported the Washington Post. She even had a prepared statement to explain her reasoning for her choice. Then, she witnessed Kavanaugh's testimony.

"We communicate not only with words, but with our body language and demeanor," she explained to CNN's Dana Bash. "I saw somebody who was very angry, who was very nervous…I saw rage."

Heitkamp ultimately voted against confirming Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. It was his response to Senator Amy Klobuchar's questioning, Heitkamp said, that sealed the deal for her. When Klobuchar asked Kavanaugh whether he had ever blacked out from drinking, he angrily responded, "I don't know, have you?" Klobuchar has just finished discussing her father's struggle with alcoholism to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Heitkamp said she watched the hearing multiple times, including with the sound turned off. Kavanaugh's demeanor, she said, solidified her vote.

Heitkamp also believes that her experience as an attorney helped contribute to her final decision. She explained that there were situations where she believed the victim in sexual assault cases, but could not prosecute the accused due to lack of evidence. In addition, Heitkamp revealed her own mother was a survivor of sexual assault, which was another factor that played a part in her choice.

Credit For Spike In Voter Registration

Taylor Swift

Look what Taylor Swift made people do.

Following the singer's first political statement, voter registration nationwide and in her home state of Tennessee has seen a significant increase.

A spokesperson for tells Yahoo Entertainment the site has seen more than 105,000 new registrations since Sunday evening, when Swift's post went up and pointed to the site. For comparison, on average it has received about 1,000 new registrations a day in 2018.

The highest number of new registrations came from people in the 18-24 age range, with 44,801. Here is the full breakdown by age group:

In Swift's home state of Tennessee - where the singer hopes Democratic candidates Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives win - has 5,183 new registrations in October so far, with 2,144 from the last 36 hours. By comparison, there were 2,811 in all of September.

Annapurna Upheaval

Megan Ellison

Annapurna Pictures, the boutique film and TV studio started by Oracle scion Megan Ellison, has run into financial difficulties that on Tuesday resulted in the exit of its film division head and the jettisoning of two upcoming films with marquee talent, multiple individuals told TheWrap.

Ellison is "reevaluating" the studio's film division and is expected to take a more active role in day-to-day development and production after a rocky 18 months that included Kathryn Bigelow's "Detroit" and the modest indie hit "Sorry to Bother You," one insider said.

According to at least two individuals close to Annapurna, Ellison's father, Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, is balking at any further investment in the studio after an initial outlay by him and his daughter of more than $200 million.

The studio's anticipated December release "Vice," about Dick Cheney, cost a bloated $60 million to produce. Knowledgeable sources said the movie should have been made for half that amount. The studio declined to comment on the budget.

On Tuesday, the company abruptly unloaded a star-studded Jay Roach movie about Fox News founder Roger Ailes and that was three weeks away from starting production, as well as Jennifer Lopez's "The Hustlers at Scores," the latter picked up by STX Films.

Digby's Hullabaloo


Treasure Hunters And The FBI

Dents Run, PA

Surrounded by dozens of stone-faced FBI agents on a frigid winter's day, Dennis and Kem Parada stared down at the empty hole and knew something wasn't right.

The father-son duo spent years combing this bit of Pennsylvania wilderness with high-end metal detectors, drills and other tools to prospect for a fabled cache of Civil War gold. They felt certain they'd discovered the hiding place of the long-lost booty, leading the FBI to the mountainous, heavily wooded area last March.

Now, at the end of the court-sanctioned excavation, the FBI escorted the treasure hunters to the snow-covered site and asked them what they saw. They gazed at the pit. Not so much as a glimmer of gold dust, let alone the tons of precious metal they said an FBI contractor's instruments had detected.

Since that day, however, neighbors' accounts of late-night excavation and FBI convoys have fueled suspicions that the agency isn't telling the whole truth. The Paradas are challenging the FBI's account of the dig, insisting that something had to have been buried in the woods near Dents Run, about 135 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The dispute between the Paradas and the FBI is the latest chapter in a mystery that has persisted for more than a century and a half. As the story goes, around the time of the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, the Union Army sent a shipment of gold from Wheeling, West Virginia, to Philadelphia. The wagon train took a circuitous route through the wilds of northern Pennsylvania so as to avoid Confederate troops. Along the way, the gold was either lost or stolen.

Ear Spring Geyser


On Sept. 15, Yellowstone National Park's Ear Spring geyser erupted in its most violent display since 1957. For several minutes, sprays of steaming water leapt up to 30 feet (9 meters) in the air, chunks of rock and dirt spewed forth onto the ground and about 60 years of wishes were promptly reversed when the geyser gave up nearly 100 coins that had previously been tossed in.

Some coins were to be expected: Who among us hasn't flipped a good-luck penny into a thermal vent? But park officials were more surprised to find that decades of man-made garbage had also burst forth from Ear Spring - some of which dated back to the 1930s.

What have people been throwing into the geyser? Some of the historical detritus that Ear Spring coughed up includes a large chunk of cinderblock, a broken bottle, several metal warning signs, some old aluminum cans, plastic cups, cigarette butts, someone's rubber heel insert, a vintage pacifier from the 1930s and an 8-inch-long (20 centimeters) plastic drinking straw. (Editor's note: please do not try to drink a geyser.)

Whether these foreign objects were dropped into the geyser accidentally or chucked in on purpose makes no difference. Either way, park officials wrote, it's bad for the geyser.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Ear Spring has erupted four times in the last 60 years, most recently in 2004. The geyser is located on Yellowstone's Geyser Hill, not far from the world-famous gusher Old Faithful. Several other geysers and thermal pools showed increased activity around the time of Ear Spring's eruption: For instance, a brand-new vent popped up and erupted overnight between Sept. 18 and 19.




Mantle Convection

Earth's Core

Earth is in a constant state of flux. Over a geologic time scale of millions and billions of years, hot rocks rise up from the planet's molten core, and colder rocks sink.

But this creeping, eternal exchange is broken. Something has disrupted the system - called mantle convection - resulting in a freak geophysical phenomenon scientists call 'stagnant slabs'.

These slabs are giant chunks of subducted oceanic plate that gets stuck somehow on its slow descent down to Hades - almost as if it realised it was tricked into accepting a ticket to the underworld.

Now, a team of researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder thinks it has an explanation for this strange, stagnating mystery.
