M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN (with working links) - October 17th 2007

Halloween Mashup Treats-No Trick!

By DJ Useo

the entire album - Mashing Pumpkins

Cheekyboy has a tradition of favouring us with compilations of Halloween-oriented mashups. This year is no exception! MASHED PUMPKINS contains the perfect seasonal fright for Samhain in the form of bastard pop versions of the tracks you know from growing up, & also current artists. It runs the gamut from 'The Purple People Eater" to Dr. Satan by Rob Zombie.

It features many fine mixers like Mr Fab, DJ Engineer, & King.of.Pants. All proven sources of not only mashups, but also Halloween mashups. You'll also hear tracks by similarly-releasing bootleggers like PimpDaddySupreme, TheHomogenicChaos, Fettdog, FrogtheDawg, & even me. I love the mashup, I have loved Halloween since a lad, & so this is a dream-come-true for me, to be on a Halloween bootleg collection.

Renowned Bootlegger DJ M.i.F generously provided an overview of some of the MASHED PUMPKINS COLLECTION-

  1. Cheekyboy starts offs the halloween show with a little help from his scary friends: Petey Pablo, Winchell Donuts & the Nightmare Before Xmas theme.

A real partystarter, that probably will make the little kids shit their pants.

  2. Fettdog has since the start been a beat-cutter, now he also fleshcuts! Most people are familar with the dialog from the first Saw-movie, but they never heard it like this before. Watch your step!

  3. TheHomogenicChaos strikes again. This time the king of Kaos is followed by his loyal servants Hybrid, Chaka Kahn & Chikane. A door opens to a magic world and you're suddently taken away. When you wake up you'll find yourself in a adventurous state between dream and well, a bad dream!

  4. King.of.Pants was invited to an eating party by the 80's-band "Toto Coelo". What he didn't know is that they are going to have him for dinner. He is eaten by cannibals, in fact they are so greedy that they eat Greenkeepers, Detroit New Pubahs, Jeffrey Dahmer & Gwen Stefani (but I would do the same, she's really Yummy!). Cannibal 80's party the people!

  5. In 1969 when The Who wrote their imfamous rock opera "Tommy", they would never have believed me, if I told them that one the songs would still be living 38 years after. Warning: MrFab will sure make you want your mommy. A mummy will scare the shit of you when you play this track!

  6. The British ska-band "The Specials" wrote "Ghost Town" as a reponse to Margaret Thatcher's policies. When the single hit the top of the UK Top 40, riots occurred on the streets of Great Britain. It is a proof that music reflects the social circumstances of the country. In 2004 "Ghost Town" was used in the zombie comedy "Shaun of the Dead". In 2007 it is used in a powerful Halloween mashup by PimpDaddySupreme, with the help of LiL John spitting the lyrics.

  7. What's green and red and goes around at 300 miles per hour? Frogthedawg in a blender. Take a little bit hush,add a few nah-nahnah - and you get a really catchy halloween cocktail! Bon appetit!"

Thanks, DJ M.i.F., You're welcome to write here anytime.

There's a great trailer video for MASHED PUMPKINS crafted by Cheekyboy that you can find here -

So if you want tunes warped by Halloween & bootleggers, take my scary advice & get your dead selves over to Tell them DJ Useo sent you, & I'll get revenge on you!
Bwah Ha ha!

Mix Of The Week-Slow week for mixes. Try again next week, or go by my site. There's a nice hard dance mix.

If your mashup starts to droop, place in a vase & sprinkle with fresh pellas.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

By what name is Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkle Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs better known?

       The Wizard of Oz                                                      Source

Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkle Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs, (also known as the Wizard of Oz and, during his reign, as Oz, the Great and Terrible) is a fictional character in the Land of Oz created by American author L. Frank Baum.

The character was further popularized by MGM's classic 1939 musical movie, in which his full name is not mentioned.        Source

Randall was first and correct with:
   The Wizard of Oz

Jim from CA, retired to ID, said:

Deborah responded:
   That's one heckuva moniker, and I couldn't wait to find out the answer.
  It's the mighty Oz, the very Wizard himself. I don't recall hearing his name in full in the movie, and I didn't read the book, thus my literary ignorance in this matter.
  And thus does summer drag on…

Adam answered:
   The Wizard of Oz.

Marian replied:

   The Wizard of Oz sure has a LOT of aliases! Must have picked 'em up during all those years working the Carnivals, traveling state to state, racking up paternity suits and felonies. Just thinking about that movie gives me the willies. There is nothing more terrifying than a flying monkey. Thanks for the nightmares L. Frank Baum.

DJ Useo replied:
   Since I have a large collection of OZ books, ( over 50! ) I know well, that 'that' silly name belongs to the Wizard of Oz!
  The books are enjoyable on many levels. The stories are inventive, & fun. Baum also plotted the tales to reflect current events of his era.
  The art is exceptional, & was very influential on my young artists' mind. They influenced me to draw with ink, & pen, & also to try calligraphy.
  Thanks again for the extra links on the BARTCOP E page, everyone. Now, I can come to the page several times, & still find cool things to read, & view.
  I'll drop some interesting links to y'all, soon. Hope the weather cools off.

The Republican presidential candidate will host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7, NBC announced Tuesday.

Trump will appear with musical guest Sia.

This is Trump's latest appearance on NBC since he and the network parted ways in early July after he made what NBC deemed to be "derogatory statements" in which he referred to Mexican illegal immigrants as "rapists" bringing drugs and crime into the U.S. NBC replaced Trump with Arnold $chwarzenegger (R-Philanderer) as the host of Celebrity Apprentice.

Marlon James Wins

Booker Prize

Marlon James became the first Jamaican winner of the prestigious Booker Prize for fiction Tuesday with a vivid, violent, exuberant and expletive-laden novel based on the attempted assassination of Bob Marley.

Michael Wood, chairman of the judging panel, said "A Brief History of Seven Killings" was "the most exciting book on the list" and a novel full of the "sheer pleasure" of language. He said it had been the unanimous choice of the five judges.

James was awarded the 50,000 pound ($77,000) prize during a black-tie dinner at London's medieval Guildhall. The 44-year-old author said he almost gave up writing more than a decade ago when his first novel, "John Crow's Devil," was rejected by 70 publishers. He said winning the Booker Prize was "surreal," and joked that he would spend the prize money on a tailor-made suit or "every William Faulkner novel in hardcover."

"A Brief History of Seven Killings" charts political violence in Jamaica and the spread of crack cocaine in the U.S., and hinges on a 1976 attempt on the life of reggae superstar Marley - identified in the book only as "The Singer." The story is told in a cacophony of voices - from gangsters to ghosts, drug dealers to CIA agents - and in dialects ranging from American English to Jamaican patois.

Can't Confirm Gentile Ben's Story

Baltimore Police

Based on available information, Baltimore police it can't verify Republican presidential contender Ben Carson's (R-Lost Sponge) account that he was held at gunpoint at a fast-food restaurant in the city, the department said Tuesday.

Carson, a retired Johns Hopkins Hospital pediatric neurosurgeon, told Sirius XM Radio last Wednesday he was in a Popeyes restaurant while working as a doctor in Baltimore when a man came in and put a gun in his ribs.

"I just said, 'I believe that you want the guy behind the counter,'" Carson told "Urban View" host Karen Hunter.

Carson didn't say when the incident occurred. He was director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins from 1984 to 2013.

Baltimore police said they've searched several databases of incident reports at Popeyes restaurants as far back as 1987 in response to news media requests. They have found none that mention Carson. Reports from earlier years cannot be searched without a report number, Wayne Brooks, a legal affairs assistant, said in a written statement.

Police Investigate Bearded Men


Alerted by a passer-by that bearded men with a black flag were acting suspiciously at a castle ruins in southern Sweden, police found to their relief that it wasn't a group of Islamic State sympathizers but a meeting of hirsute do-gooders.

John Ekeblad, co-founder of the Swedish chapter of the Bearded Villains, says the incident Saturday ended with police acknowledging their mistake and even ignoring the brotherhood's illegal parking on the roadside by Brahehus Castle, outside the city of Jonkoping.

Ekeblad said Monday the incident was "hilarious," and that police drove off laughing. He explained the group promotes equality and does charity work in Sweden.

Bearded Villains, founded in 2014 in Los Angeles, calls itself "a brotherhood of elite bearded men from all over the world" on its website.

Ordered To Stand Trial

Suge Knight & Katt Williams

Marion "Suge" Knight and comedian Katt Williams should stand trial on charges they robbed a celebrity photographer of her camera last year, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Los Angeles Superior Court Ronald Coen said there was enough evidence to support the robbery charges and a separate charge of felony criminal threats filed against Knight over comments he made to the photographer before she was attacked in Beverly Hills in September 2014.

Attorneys for Williams and Knight said their clients were trying to prevent the photographer from shooting images of Knight's young son. Knight's lawyer Thomas Mesereau denied his client was actively involved in taking the camera, saying the photographer's testimony and surveillance footage supported his contention that the Death Row Records co-founder never touched the photographer or took her camera.

Knight and Williams have pleaded not guilty and are due to be re-arraigned in the case on Oct. 27

Redden, a celebrity photographer who goes by the name KAT, testified she suffered a concussion and injuries to her hands and wrist in the Sept. 5, 2014 attack. A confrontation with Knight in which he calls her a "bitch" and tells someone to get her camera was recorded on a video recorder she wore around her neck.

Sues Shrinks Over CIA Interrogation Tactics


The American Civil Liberties Union on Tuesday sued two former Air Force psychologists who designed a CIA program that used harsh interrogation techniques to elicit intelligence from suspected terrorists, saying the pair endorsed and taught torture tactics under the guise of science.

The lawsuit comes 10 months after the release of a damning Senate report that said the interrogation techniques had inflicted pain on al-Qaida prisoners far beyond the legal limits and did not yield lifesaving intelligence.

The suit accuses the psychologists, James E. Mitchell and John "Bruce" Jessen, of developing an interrogation program that relied on beatings, sleep deprivation, starvation, waterboarding and other methods that caused physical and psychological suffering on prisoners in CIA custody.

The suit was filed in federal court in Washington state on behalf of three former CIA prisoners. One, Gul Rahman, was interrogated in a dungeon-like Afghanistan prison called the Salt Pit, subjected to isolation, darkness and extreme cold water, and was later found dead of hypothermia. The other two, Suleiman Abdullah Salim and Mohamed Ahmed Ben Soud, were held in CIA prisons but were never charged with any crimes and are now free.

The pair, who worked as independent contractors for the CIA, formed a company that was ultimately paid $81 million and, as of April 2007, directly employed 11 of the 13 interrogators employed by the agency, according to the complaint.

Catholic Bishop Forced Firing


A Virginia man said the bishop of a local Catholic diocese forced his removal from the top job at a diocese-owned assisted living home because he's gay and married to his partner of 30 years.

John Murphy filed a discrimination claim against the Catholic Diocese of Richmond with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission last month. He said he served as executive director of the Saint Francis Home in Richmond for about a week before two deputies of Bishop Francis Xavier DiLorenzo told him that he was being fired because his marriage goes against church doctrine.

Murphy was terminated without severance pay and he and his husband, a retired clinical social worker, are relying primarily on Social Security benefits to get by, he said. The 63-year-old lifelong Catholic said the incident has shaken his faith in his church.

"I thought I found a safe place where I could do good and I won't be judged and I won't be ostracized," Murphy said. "People being discriminated against because of who they love, when it has nothing to do with their performance, is outrageous."

The Saint Francis Home's day-to-day operations are handled by lay administrators. The diocese doesn't fund the home's yearly operating expenses, but it supports the home in other ways, like allowing it to solicit funds from parishioners, Snider said.

Contemptible Aunt

Jennifer Connell

A Connecticut jury on Tuesday rejected a woman's bid to sue her now 12-year-old nephew for injuries she says she suffered from his exuberant greeting at his birthday party four years ago.

New York City resident Jennifer Connell claimed the Westport boy acted unreasonably when he jumped into her arms at his 8th-birthday party, causing her to fall and break her wrist. She sued in Bridgeport Superior Court for $127,000.

The Connecticut Post reports that the six-member jury found that the boy was not liable. The newspaper reported that she ignored shouted requests for comment as she passed reporters outside the courthouse.

Connell, a 54-year-old human resources manager, had testified that she loves her nephew but thinks he should be held accountable. She said when the child jumped she tumbled to the ground as she tried to catch him.

The boy, the only defendant, appeared in court with his father, Michael Tarala. The boy's mother died last year.

Cattle Reintroduced In Czech Republic

Wild Aurochs

Such an animal has not been seen on Czech territory for hundreds of years.

A Dutch breeding program has recreated massive bovines closely related to aurochs, once the heaviest European land mammal and the wild ancestor of today's cattle that became extinct in the 17th century.

It is believed they disappeared from what is now the Czech Republic in the 12th or 13th century.

On Tuesday, a small herd was introduced to a Czech sanctuary as part of a project to use big-hoofed animals to maintain the steppe character of the former Milovice military base, 35 kilometers (22 miles) northeast of Prague.

The beasts joined a herd of 15 wild horses from Britain's Exmoor National Park that were moved here in January with a task to stop the spread of aggressive and evasive grasses and bushes, delicacies to the animals.

The birds were later handed over to Sindh Wildlife Department, reported local media.

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.
