M Is FOR MASHUP - October 25th, 2017

How To Enjoy YiTT

By DJ Useo

If you're aware of modern mashups, you're no doubt familiar with the excellent bootleg blends of YiTT. In fact he had swell some tracks on last weeks' "M Is For Mashup" Halloween mashup album, " Monster Mashup The 13th" ( ).

YiTT regularly releases excellent singles like "Elvis vs. Justin Bieber - Can't Help Loving Yourself", "Aerosmith vs. Blink 182 - I Don't Want To Miss You", & "Here Comes The Light (Pilotpriest/Beatles/Green Day/System Of A Down)". There's many superb tracks of his located here ( )

You'd almost expect that to be enough to satisfy any YiTT fan, but he gives us much more than that.

A regular feature of the YiTT experience are his track packed mashup albums. By simply navigating the web to ( ) you can obtain a large collection of his full releases. All are set to "Buy Now, name your price, & Send as Gift". If you're familiar with Bandcamp hosting, you already know all tracks can be streamed, or d/l'ed. It's a great system, & even better when the material is YiTTs.

I'm signed up to "follow" Yitt's releases, & does it ever pay off. Recently, I got a notice that YiTT's new album, " Semi Automatic" was ready to access ( ).

I grabbed it straightaway, & found it was up to the highest standards of the bootleg community. Honestly, I found every track to be an "A" mix, with most of them rising up to"A+" territory.

You'll love this collection, & will no doubt go for the other past YiTT releases. As I mentioned, all his albums are found here ( ) Well worth adding a tip, I think. Tell Yitt Useo sent you.

P.S. I did a lo-o-ong live set composed of the entire "Monster Mashup The 13th" album. You can find it here
( )

Perfect for frightening the kiddies as you pass out goodies this Halloween. Kudos to all the contributors.

we are living in the age of Trumpal infallibility: We are ruled by men who never admit error, never apologize and, crucially, never learn from their mistakes.

The Sideshow - by Avedon Carol


Shuts Down Trump Tower

Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot stormed Trump Tower in New York to voice their opposition to the actions of US President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Putin's Catamite) and Russian President Vladamir Putin.

The Russian feminist punk rock group staged the protest in the 58-storey skyscraper, which is the headquarter of The Trump Organisation, to draw attention to the incarceration of political prisoners.

Wearing their trademark makeshift balaclavas made out of woollen hats, the group unfurled a banner calling for a Ukranian film director imprisoned in Russia to be released. The protest reportedly saw the lavish tower shut down for half an hour.

"The police closed the tower for half an hour after our action," Pussy Riot's Maria Alekhina, who was sentenced to two years' imprisonment in 2012 for being convicted of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" for a performance in Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, said on Facebook.

"We came to occupy Trump Tower to call attention to political prisoners. We believe that political prisoners and their protection are more important than the sexist bullshit that people have been focused on," Pussy Riot said in a Facebook post.

'Make America Crip Again'

Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg is bashing President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Crooked) again, this time over the NFL national anthem controversy.

Snoop's new album, "Make America Crip Again," isn't due out until Oct. 27, but audio of the title track has already been released. In the song, the rapper complains that quarterback Colin Kaepernick - the NFL player who first took a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality - has been blackballed.

"The president said he wants to make America great again. Fuck that shit, we gon' make America Crip again," he raps.

Snoop told CNN that he referred to the notorious Los Angeles gang because it was founded to be the "reflection of the Black Panthers," who "looked after kids, provided after-school activities, fed them and stepped in as role models and father figures."

"Certain people feel like we should make America 'great again,' but that time they're referring to always takes me back to separation and segregation, so I'd rather make America Crip again," Snoop added. "What I mean by that is, in my lifetime, that's when young black men in impoverished areas organized to help their communities and to take care of their own because society basically left them for dead."

Well, Shit

Hillary Clinton

Fox "News" slammed Hillary Clinton for using a bad word during her interview with BBC's The Graham Norton Show.

The former presidential candidate appeared on the show last Friday, as she toured the U.K. promoting her book What Happened, and told host Graham Norton a story about former resident George W. Bush's reaction to Donald Trump's (R-Corrupt) inauguration speech.

"It was reported that George W. Bush, as it ends, says, 'That was some weird shit'," she said on the show.

"And it was," Norton replied, in a conversation that appears to have been deemed inappropriate by Fox News, despite being a show intended for mature audiences.

The Democrat described Trump's speech as a "cry from a white nationalist gut," but nonetheless the fact that she said the word "shit" was held up by the "news" channel for scrutiny.

Note Sells For $1.56 Million

Albert Einstein

A note that Albert Einstein gave to a courier in Tokyo briefly describing his theory on happy living sold at auction in Jerusalem on Tuesday for $1.56 million, the auction house said.

The winning bid for the note far exceeded the pre-auction estimated price of between $5,000 and $8,000, according to the Winner's auction house website.

The buyer was a European who wished to remain anonymous, a spokesman for the auction house said.

"I am really happy that there are people out there who are still interested in science and history and timeless deliveries in a world which is developing so fast," the seller told AFP on condition of anonymity after the sale.

The note, on the stationary of the Imperial Hotel Tokyo, says in German that "a quiet and modest life brings more joy than a pursuit of success bound with constant unrest."

Digby's Hullabaloo


He's 'Mad At God'


Bill O'Reilly (R-Odious) says he's mad at God over the sexual harassment allegations that drove him off the air at Fox News earlier this year.

"You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I'm mad at him," the self-described devout Catholic said on his subscription web series, according to CNN. "I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn't happen. I can't explain it to you. Yeah, I'm mad at him."

He said again that he settled with several accusers - including a $32 million settlement reported over the weekend by The New York Times - to protect his family.

"I truly believe that these people at the New York Times are out to hurt people with whom they disagree," he said. "They don't want me in the marketplace. That's what this is all about."




Nevada Gun Shows Tied To Firearm Violence


Firearms-related deaths and injuries increased 70 percent in parts of California in the weeks after gun shows in neighboring Nevada, which has fewer regulations on such events, a University of California, Berkeley study released on Monday found.

The research could help prevent gun deaths by charting a pattern between where weapons are purchased at gun shows and where shootings take place, according to the authors.

The study, which was partly funded by the National Institutes of Health, examined firearm injury rates before and after California and Nevada gun shows between 2005 and 2013 in areas of California near the shows.

Researchers found that rates of firearm injuries were steady after California gun shows but increased significantly, from 0.67 to 1.14 per 100,000 people, in California regions near the Nevada shows.

The authors of the study, which will be published in an upcoming issue of Annals of Internal Medicine, say California's stricter gun regulations could help explain why there was an increase after Nevada gun shows and not California shows.



Attorneys General Unite Against Gun Law


Democratic attorneys general from 17 states are calling on Congress to abandon legislation backed by the National Rifle Association that would allow concealed-carry gun permits issued in one state to be valid in all states.

The top prosecutors from states including New York, Pennsylvania, Iowa and California sent a letter to congressional leaders in both parties on Sunday warning that federal reciprocity proposals being debated on Capitol Hill "will lead to the death of police officers and civilians, the proliferation of gun traffickers, and acts of terrorism and other mass violence."

"With the worst shooting in American history fresh in our memory, we urge you and your colleagues to reject these ill-conceived bills," write the attorneys general in a letter organized by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

The fresh warning comes as the gun lobby, emboldened by complete Republican control of Washington, continues to press for looser gun restrictions in the weeks after an attack in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead and hundreds more wounded. It was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, which already has more than 200 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives, "remains the NRA's top legislative priority," said Jennifer Baker, a spokeswoman for the NRA's lobbying arm. The measure, if approved by Congress, would allow people with concealed-carry gun permits in one state to bring their guns into any other, regardless of whether that state has tougher requirements for obtaining permits.




Increasingly Showing Up in People's Bodies


The latest study to look at the long-term effects of Roundup, a popular weed killer developed by Monsanto in the 1970s, raises questions about the herbicide's possible contributions to poor health in certain communities.

The study, published Tuesday in JAMA, tracked people over the age of 50 in southern California from 1993-1996 to 2014-2016, with researchers periodically collecting urine samples during that time.

Researchers led by Paul Mills, professor of family medicine and public health at the University of California San Diego, found that the percentage of people who tested positive for a chemical called glyphosate, which is the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, shot up by 500% in that time period. The levels of glyphosate also spiked by 1208% during that time.

Exactly what that means for human health isn't quite clear yet. There are few studies of the chemical and its effects on people, although animal studies raise some concerns. One trial from the UK, in which rats were fed low levels of glyphosate throughout their lives, found that the chemical contributed to a higher risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, a condition in which fat accumulates in the liver and contributes to inflammation and scarring of the tissue. Mills says that the levels of glyphosate documented in the people in his study were 100-fold greater than those in the rats.

"From my perspective it's remarkable that we have been ingesting a lot of this chemical over the last couple of decades," says Mills. "But the biomedical literature hasn't said much about its effects on people. That's a gap that we endeavored to address and bring more awareness to with this study."

In Memory

Robert Guillaume

Two-time Emmy Award-winning actor Robert Guillaume, who became one of the most prominent black actors on U.S. television playing the cantankerous title character in the hit 1980s series "Benson," died of complications from prostate cancer on Tuesday, his wife said. He was 89.

The gravelly voiced Guillaume, who thrived in Broadway musicals before starring on the TV series "Soap" and its spinoff "Benson," died at his Los Angeles home, his wife Donna Brown Guillaume said in a statement. It is not known how long he had been battling cancer.

Robert Guillaume first played sarcastic and irascible butler Benson DuBois on the over-the-top soap opera parody series "Soap," which debuted in 1977 and also starred Katherine Helmond, Richard Mulligan and Billy Crystal.

His work on that show won Guillaume won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series in 1979.

His character became so popular that the ABC network created "Benson" for him and that series ran for seven seasons from 1979 to 1986. Guillaume's character had been a butler on "Soap" but on "Benson" he served as a state governor's director of household affairs, then state budget director, lieutenant governor and candidate for governor.

Guillaume won the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series in 1985 for "Benson," the last of six times that he was nominated for an Emmy playing the character. He became the first black actor to win that award.

Guillaume said he was sensitive about not playing his character as a racial stereotype and was pleased that Benson evolved from being a butler to a political power player - albeit one that retained the same crotchety attitude.

After the end of "Benson," he starred in the short-lived sitcom "The Robert Guillaume Show" in 1989, as well as the series "Pacific Station" (1991-1992) and "Sports Night" (1998-2000). He suffered a stroke in 1999 on the set of "Sports Night" but was able to return to his role within weeks.

On film, Guillaume provided the voice for the mandrill Rafiki in Disney's animated 1994 hit "The Lion King" and appeared with Morgan Freeman in the 1989 drama "Lean on Me."

In 1977, he earned a Tony Award nomination for his role in the Broadway musical "Guys and Dolls." He also had leading roles on stage in "Purlie" and "Golden Boy."

Born Robert Peter Williams on Nov. 30, 1927, he changed his name to Robert Guillaume to make it more distinctive (Guillaume is French for William). He was raised by his strong-willed grandmother in a St. Louis slum after his alcoholic mother gave up her children and his father abandoned the family.

He studied music at Washington University in St. Louis, where he was noticed by a Hungarian opera singer who helped him get a scholarship to the 1957 Aspen Music Festival and School in Colorado. That was followed by an apprenticeship at a theatre in Cleveland where he made his professional debut.

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?
