M Is FOR MASHUP - October 19th, 2016

Return of the Living Monster Mashup

From DJ Useo

By Guest Writer Jeremy Girard

I would like... if I may... to take you on a strange journey... This year, "Return of the Living Monster Mashup" is the biggest it ever has been, at 50 tracks over 3 discs. I never knew that a search for "The Satisfaction Skank" by Fatboy Slim on the internet would eventually result in spearheading the biggest Halloween mashup compilation to date. My name is Jeremy ( although during the spooky season I'm 'Some Ghoul Named Jeremy' ) and I am not a DJ. I've never mixed, mashed, or produced.

One day about 10 yrs ago, I decided to find "The Satisfaction Skank" online. I came up empty, but a new word intrigued me that kept popping up in my searches; Mashup. What was a mashup? Smash cut to several years of Mashuptown, Bootie Blog, Mashup Industries and a full hard drive later, and I was a mash junkie. So much so that I began a small fan page on Facebook dedicated to sharing my joy and thanking those that created it. That page was the now defunct Mashup of the Day.

During it's fun run, I came into contact with the great Cheekyboy. He shared a video promoting the 2010 double Monster Mashup albums, Pumpkin On Your Stereo and Phantom of the Mash-upera. He also had a webpage that held even more treasures! I found all of the previous Monster Mashup albums, his personal album, DJ Useo's Halloween albums, and the work of Mr. Fab. As I downloaded and listened, I was hooked again on mashups. However, my personal love (and obsession) with Halloween fused with my mashup adoration, and created an absolute monster... I dug through the deepest reaches of the web, grabbing every Halloween mashup, remix, and original track I could gather.

Every October, Mashup of the Day was dedicated to the 31 Days of Halloween mashups! I even joined an online radio group called Battle Radio (now defunct) and created a channel dedicated entirely to spooky tunes! Then one day, I went searching for the Monster Mashup Facebook page... and it was gone. The great Cheekyboy had found tremendous opportunity composing his own original Halloween music. Amazing stuff. But his time was spread far too thin, and had to give up Monster Mashup. I could tell the decision killed him. That was it. Monster Mashup had one foot in the grave...

But a wild idea came, could I pull it off? I wasn't a DJ, but I had made some major connections and friendships. My personal collection was fairly massive, and I knew how to communicate with most of the producers... could I make it work? Smash cut again to today; 3 yrs, 3 albums, 126 tracks later... maybe I'm OK at this after all.

I have to thank all of the amazing DJs, mashers, and producers for the fantastic work they've been kind enough to share. Thank you to dj BC for starting the Monster Mashup project many moons ago. Thank you to Cheekyboy for starting my obsession and passing the torch. Thank you Voicedude for your support as well as mixing one of the greatest Halloween mixes ever! Thank you DJ Farmer Marty and Rebecca for dragging me into the radio days. Thank you Stevo In Yr Stereo for your advice and assistance. Thank you so very much DJ Useo for all of your support, advice, amazing audio ear, and many other things! But most importantly, thank YOU, the listeners! This is for all of you. It is my only hope that these albums ignite the flame of Halloween fun in all of you as it has done for me. Happy Halloween!

Here's the Twelfth annual Monster Mashup album! "Return of the Living Monster Mashup". Three 'discs' of seasonal bootlegs by many top home producers.

Chris Kluwe: "Dear Donald Trump: I played in the NFL. Here's what we really talk about in the locker room" (Vox)
So let me conclude with some advice for you, Donald. The next time you want to claim that something is "locker room talk," take a moment to recognize the fact that were you in an actual locker room, you would be universally reviled as a cancerous, egotistical train wreck of a disgrace that no team could possibly find the time to employ and, honestly, would never even have on their draft board to begin with.

Colin Ebeling: Hillary Clinton's 'Gay Nephew' Talks About Their Lifelong Friendship (Towle Road)
I've known Hillary Clinton since my early childhood. She and my mother have been best friends since they were little girls growing up in Park Ridge, IL. As a child, I knew Hillary not as a powerful attorney, child advocate or the First Lady of Arkansas, but rather as Chelsea's mom - a warm, funny lady who taught me how copious amounts of hot sauce on your scrambled eggs will keep you healthy.

PAUL B. BROWN: Three Excellent Books on Long-Term Investing (NY Times)
Solid counsel, but it is not why the book is worth reading. Mr. Tobias's ideas about saving money - you can't build a portfolio without savings - are his real gems. And the reason for that is his approach. He combines humor - it starts with the dedication, "to my broker - even if he has, from time to time, made me just that" - with common sense presented in an uncommon way.

Tom Scocca: John McCain Promises To Defy The Election Results (The Concourse)
While Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is going off on paranoid rants about how the media and inner-city voters are trying to steal the election from him, his on-and-off supporter Senator John McCain has already moved on to the larger picture. [On Oct. 17, 2016], he pledged to ignore the result of the election if Hillary Clinton wins.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What does the term Widdershins (sometimes withershins, widershins or widderschynnes) mean?

       Counter-clockwisse                                                      Source

Widdershins (sometimes withershins, widershins or widderschynnes) is a term meaning to go counter-clockwise, to go anti-clockwise, or to go lefthandwise, or to walk around an object by always keeping it on the left. i.e. literally, it means to take a course opposite the apparent motion of the sun viewed from the Northern Hemisphere, (the centre of this imaginary clock is the ground the viewer stands upon). The Oxford English Dictionary's entry cites the earliest uses of the word from 1513, where it was found in the phrase widdersyns start my hair, i.e. my hair stood on end.[        Source

Mark. was first and correct with:
   Widdershins is counter-clockwise and is considered unlucky.

Randall wrote:

Alan J said:
   A wrong, or contrary motion.

mj resplied:
   If one circles the block widdershins
  One has made the trip anti-clockwise.

Deborah responded:
   I looked this up, since I'm not familiar with the term: Widdershins means to move counter-clockwise, or against the usual direction. Like salmon swimming upstream, maybe?

Adam answered:
   To move in a counter-clockwise direction

Jim from CA, retired to ID, said:
   Widdershins is a term meaning to go counter-clockwise, to go anti-clockwise, or to go lefthandwise, or to walk around an object by always keeping it on the left. i.e. literally, it means to take a course opposite the apparent motion of the sun viewed from the Northern Hemisphere

DJ Useo responded:
   I always thought it mean to go left, or counter-clockwise. I am told there's more to it than that.

   To go counter-clockwise ~ To walk 'widdershins' is to walk counterclockwise or backwards around something. It's a classic pathway into the fairy realm.

2017 Nominees

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced Tuesday morning the nominees for its 2017 induction ceremony. This year's nominees include Tupac Shakur, Chaka Khan, Pearl Jam, Bad Brains, Janet Jackson, and more.

This year marks the first year of eligibility for Shakur and Pearl Jam. To be considered for induction, an individual artist or band must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. Last year's inductees included N.W.A, Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, Chicago, and Steve Miller.

Other first-time nominees include Bad Brains, Depeche Mode, Electric Light Orchestra, Jane's Addiction, Joan Baez, Journey, and Steppenwolf. Given Shakur's timeless popularity in the hip-hop world, he'll likely be a favorite with the public. Seminal D.C. hardcore punk band Bad Brains was among the surprises in this year's lineup, while folk icon Baez and pop-rock hitmakers Journey were long considered notable absentees from past shortlists. Additionally, this year marks Chic's 11th nomination overall.

Ballots will be sent to a roster of more than 800 artists, historians, and members of the music industry. As of Tuesday, the public will also have the opportunity to cast fan ballots at The top five vote-getters will be tallied as a single ballot, and counted alongside the others. Public voting ends Dec. 5 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Back To Rock 'N' Roll

Chuck Berry

Rock pioneer Chuck Berry turned 90 on Tuesday with the surprise announcement that he plans to release his first album in decades.

Berry said he recorded the album -- entitled simply "Chuck" -- at studios around his native St. Louis and will release it sometime next year.

Considered one of the creators of rock 'n' roll, Berry helped define 1950s youth culture and shape the future of music by bringing together rhythm and blues, country guitar and consummate stage showmanship.

His 1958 song "Johnny B. Goode" is one of the most recognizable in popular music and was selected to represent rock music for potential extraterrestrial listeners on the Voyager spacecraft.

"Chuck" will be the first album in 38 years by Berry, who has gradually cut back on live performances as his age advances.

People Walk Out of Florida Show

Amy Schumer

Around 200 people walked out of Amy Schumer's show in Tampa, Florida, on Sunday when she called Donald Trump (R-Grifter) a "orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster," according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The paper claimed Schumer was met with loud booing about halfway through the show when her jokes switched from raunchy topics to more topical matters, including gun control and the upcoming presidential election.

During her show, she asked a Trump supporter to join her up on stage so he could explain why he was voting for the GOP candidate. The audience member responded that he was voting for Trump mainly because he didn't trust his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

"Do you get worried at all with how impulsive he is," Schumer asked, "that he gets so fired up from 'Saturday Night Live' doing a skit on him do you worry he'll be impulsive and get us in a lot of f-ing trouble we can't get out of?"

When booing erupted, the comedian asked anyone booing to leave with the help of security, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Surprise T-rump Film

Michael Moore

In 2004, director Michael Moore took on George W. Bush in "Fahrenheit 9/11." On Tuesday, the filmmaker surprised his fans with news that he would debut his new film about Donald Trump (R-Pendejo).

"Michael Moore in TrumpLand" will have a free pre-screening Tuesday night in New York, he announced on Twitter.

The movie is apparently based on his failed efforts to stage a one-man show about Trump in an Ohio theater. Moore said it was cancelled because he was told he was too controversial.

"See the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down. Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election," according to the synopsis offered by the IFC Center theater in Brooklyn.

The film's regular run at the theater will begin Wednesday.

Sues Over 'Spinal Tap' Profits

Harry Shearer

Comedian Harry Shearer announced Tuesday that he has sued a French film studio over tens of millions in dollars in profits he claims he and his co-creators are owed for creating the classic mockumentary "This Is Spinal Tap."

Shearer's lawsuit filed in a federal court in Los Angeles on Monday claims the French company Vivendi S.A. and its subsidiary StudioCanal withheld profits from the film, its music and its merchandise.

Shearer co-created the satire about a British rock band on the decline, which has been featured on numerous top movie lists of all time since its 1984 release. "This Is Spinal Tap" was made for $2.25 million, the lawsuit said.

Vivendi told Shearer and his co-creators that their share of merchandise between the 1984 release of the film and 2013 was $81, the lawsuit stated.

The company said their share of profits on music on songs such as "Sex Farm" and "Stonehenge" was $98, according to the lawsuit, which also said Vivendi has not provided accounting for the film's profits since 2013.

Defends Predator

Shepard Smith

For years, Gawker and Fox News fans wondered out loud whether anchor Shepard Smith was gay.

In a new interview with The Huffington Post, the anchor seemingly confirmed the rumors, without ever using the word "gay." Smith told HuffPo that former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes never used homophobic slurs against him or forced him to remain in the closet.

"He was as nice as he could be to me. I loved him like a father," Smith told The Huffington Post.

Though Smith has appeared in Out Magazine's "Power 50" list, this is the most explicit admission he's made so far in public. In 2014, Gawker reported that Smith wanted to come out of the closet but that Ailes told him that wouldn't go over well with the network's conservative audience.

Ailes has since left the network after multiple reports surfaced alleging that the chairman had sexually harassed employees. Smith said the allegations were horrifying, and that his trust felt betrayed.

More Government By Obstruction


Sen. John McCain (R-Feckless) pledged Monday that Republicans will unite against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton puts forward if she becomes president, forecasting obstruction that could tie Capitol Hill in knots.

However an aide later clarified that McCain, R-Ariz., will examine the record of anyone nominated for the high court and vote for or against that person based on their qualifications.

McCain's initial comments came in an interview with Philadelphia talk radio host Dom Giordano to promote the candidacy of Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa.

"I promise you that we will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up," McCain said. "I promise you. This is where we need the majority and Pat Toomey is probably as articulate and effective on the floor of the Senate as anyone I have encountered."

Tearing Down House


The house in Austria where Adolf Hitler was born is to be torn down to stop it from becoming a neo-Nazi shrine, the government said Monday, after years of bitter legal wrangling with the current owner.

"The Hitler house will be torn down. The foundations can remain but a new building will be erected. It will be used by either a charity or the local authorities," Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka told Austrian newspaper Die Presse.

He said the decision was based on the recommendations of a 13-member expert committee tasked with deciding what to do with the controversial building in the quaint northern town of Braunau am Inn.

The government hopes this will bring to an end a difficult chapter regarding the large yellow corner house where Hitler was born on April 20, 1889.
