M Is FOR MASHUP - October 29th, 2014

Halloween Mashup Roundup

By DJ Useo

This has been my biggest year ever for Halloween mashups. I released my own Halloween mashup ep, & teamed up with AtoZ to do an ever spookier Halloween mashup album. I also got featured on the tenth annual MONSTER MASHUP Halloween mashup collection. Woot!

Read about all three albums, & get the links from these October 2014 BARTCOP E articles.

01-The Sinister Season
( )

( )

03-Useo Halloween ep 2014
( )

Don't miss my article from last week on Halloween mashup videos
( )

I also posted three Halloween mashup solo tracks.

01-"Grey Matter Blood On The Dancefloor" ( Michael Jackson vs Oingo Boingo )
( )

02-"Children Of The Grave Pain" ( Oingo Boingo vs Black Sabbath )
( )

03-"Vampires Fragments Are Alive" ( DJ Bobo vs P8 & Answer42 vs Guy J )
( )

Over at AUDIOBOOTS, the new mashup forum where I'm a moderator, we've stylized the motif just for this scary holiday, & perm-tagged the major Halloween mashup posts to the top of the page here
( )

In addition to all these Samhain goodies, several bootleg sites have swell pages devoted to assembling many more Halloween mashup posts. I like Mashupciti ( ) , so I'm mighty pleased to find they've arranged the links so handily. You'll find six pages of frightening links here
( )

 has their new fourth annual Halloween mashup collection available, as given away at the live club show every year. All four are wonderful, & can be obtained here
( )

 offers up "17 Spooky Mashups for Your Halloween Dance Party". Again, there's a fine selection of audio, & video Halloween mashups from many accomplished mixers. Well worth the time spent enjoying.
( )

Now that you're pre-armed with all these Seasonal goodies, you can enjoy your costumes, party edibles, & spooky company in the best modern mashup way. Remember, you don't have to go out to participate. Have your own costumed ball at home. You can even pick out your own thriller movie to watch at midnight. I'm not into the gory films myself, so I'm planning to watch "The Fearless Vampire Killers", or "The Rocky Picture Show". When I get home, that is. I'm planning to go to the Austin 6th street Halloween festival. I'll be the one dressed as Godzilla, if he had a Jack-O-Lantern for a heard. Lmao!

Trivia Question from Yesterday

The BBC banned this record from airplay in 1962 on the grounds that the song was "too morbid". In the US, it appeared in the Billboard charts on three occasions after the original release - December 1962, August 1970 and May 1973. What is the title of this perennial holiday favorite?

      Monster Mash                                                      Source

"Monster Mash" is a 1962 novelty song and the best-known song by Bobby "Boris" Pickett. The song was released as a single on Gary S. Paxton's Garpax Records label in August 1962 along with a full-length LP called The Original Monster Mash, which contained several other monster-themed tunes. The "Monster Mash" single was #1 on the Hot 100 chart on October 20-27 of that year, just before Halloween. It has been a perennial holiday favorite ever since.

The song was re-released several times and appeared in the Billboard charts on three occasions after the original release - December 1962, August 1970 and May 1973. The BBC had banned the record from airplay in 1962 on the grounds that the song was "too morbid". It was re-released in the United Kingdom in 1973, where it peaked at #3 in early October.        Source

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

Named Funniest Person In The World

Ismo Leikola

"Countries don't owe money to each other, countries owe money to banks. If the countries owe money to banks, how stupid are the countries to pay? Like, the country has an army. The bank has four cashiers and a cleaning lady."

Yesterday, Finnish comedian Ismo Leikola was named the winner of the Laugh Factory's Funniest Person in the World competition.

His prize: $10,000 and a national comedy tour.

Leikola's impressive semi-final routine - his joke about the solving the planet's debt problems produced the biggest laugh of the night - earned him a spot in last Friday's final round, a five-comic showdown at the Las Vegas Laugh Factory that was streamed online. The winner was chosen by online viewers.

Watch his entire winning routine here. (Warning: Contains some mature content.)

Reunites With Max Weinberg

Conan O'Brien

Conan O'Brien reunited with former bandleader Max Weinberg for the first time since the late-night host made his move from NBC to TBS on Tuesday's episode of Conan, with Weinberg sitting in as the drummer after James Wormworth suddenly "disappeared."

"What do you mean he wandered off?" O'Brien asked the remaining members of the band before cutting to a pretaped segment of Wormworth falling down an abandoned mine. (All fake of course.) When O'Brien exclaimed that they needed a drummer "now!" the camera cut to O'Brien's friend, who just happened to be sitting in the audience with a pair of drumsticks ready to take the helm.

"I'll play!" Weinberg said, and then raced down to the stage to embrace O'Brien. It's as if no time had passed.

Weinberg led O'Brien's in-house band from the start of Late Night With Conan O'Brien in 1993 and moved to Los Angeles for a brief Tonight Show run that ended in early 2010. Based on the East Coast, Weinberg - drummer for Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band - did not return for Conan. Longtime O'Brien band member Jimmy Vivino currently leads the Basic Cable Band.

Sales Soar As Suit Continues

Led Zeppelin

In a case of improbable timing, Led Zeppelin has simultaneously scored a new hit with the album containing Stairway to Heaven while firing back against allegations that it ripped off the opening notes of the legendary song.

As we've reported, Led Zeppelin faces a copyright infringement suit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania that contends parts of the 1971 hit were filched from an obscure song by the band Spirit. The suit was filed in May by a Philadelphia-area lawyer who is representing the trust of the late Spirit guitarist, Randy California.

This week, the Led Zeppelin defense team filed a fresh motion to either dismiss the case or move it to California, arguing that Philadelphia isn't an appropriate venue and responding to an amended complaint filed earlier this month. At the same time, the band re-issued the untitled album known as Led Zeppelin IV in a deluxe version that includes a re-mastered cut of Stairway to Heaven and a previously unreleased, earlier mix of the song.

While the court case is pending, fans have voted with their wallets. The deluxe CD edition jumped to at least No. 3 in overall CD and vinyl sales on Amazon's U.S. site, and ranked at No. 1 in rock. A re-issue of 1973?s Houses of the Holy also hit the overall top 10.

Alamo Collection

Phil Collins

British pop star Phil Collins on Tuesday handed over his vast collection of artifacts related to the Battle of the Alamo and the Texas Revolution to the state of Texas.

Collins was in San Antonio to donate what's considered the world's largest private collection of Alamo artifacts. It includes a fringed leather pouch and a gun used by Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie's legendary knife and letters from garrison commander William B. Travis.

The 1980s pop artist and Genesis singer-drummer has joked that he spent all the money he made from music on artifacts related to the 1836 battle in which 1,500 Mexican troops laid siege to 200 Texans.

The collection was given to Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, the state steward of the Alamo who is pushing for a new historical center that would house Collins' collection.

Court Battle Continues Over Superheroes


Spider-Man, X-Men and The Hulk loomed large in a federal appeals court Tuesday as a Colorado company fought its latest battle with Disney for the rights to Marvel's iconic comic book characters.

A panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments in the case involving Colorado-based Stan Lee Media and The Walt Disney Co. after a federal judge last year dismissed a lawsuit in which Stan Lee Media claimed the copyright to the characters. The lawsuit sought profits from the $5.5 million the company said Disney made from movies and merchandise featuring the superheroes. Disney bought Marvel in 2009.

Stan Lee Media, which is no longer affiliated with comic book writer Stan Lee, then appealed the judge's dismissal of the case, the latest turn in a court battle between the companies that has spanned more than a decade. Stan Lee Media has sued Marvel and others over the characters' copyrights in at least six cases, all of which have been dismissed, according to court documents. In asking the judge to dismiss the latest lawsuit, Disney said there was no conceivable way Stan Lee Media could state a viable copyright claim.

At the center of the dispute is a 1998 agreement in which Lee signed over the rights to his characters to its corporate predecessor. But Lee later sent Stan Lee Media a letter terminating the agreement because the company had breached the deal. He gave the same copyrights to Marvel, spawning the courtroom battles, court documents say.

Anglican Priests


Two percent of Anglican clergy do not believe in God, according to a poll on Tuesday in which dozens of respondents said they were "not sure 'God' is more than a human construct".

Asked to choose the statement that most closely resembled their beliefs, nine percent also chose the phrase "No-one can know what God is like".

The overwhelming majority, 83 percent, chose: "There is a personal God", while three percent went for: "There is some sort of spirit or life force".

The survey of 1,500 Anglican clergy in Britain and Ireland by the polling company YouGov and the University of Lancaster was carried out in August and September.



Loses Legal Battle

'Naked Rambler'

A British man who has spent a total of seven years in jail for going naked in public lost his legal battle to wear no clothes on Tuesday as Europe's human rights court told him he must respect the feelings of others.

Stephen Gough, dubbed "The Naked Rambler" by British media for his bid to trek the length of the country wearing no more than a hat and bulky rucksack, has faced some 30 convictions for public order disturbances and other offences.

Gough argued that European laws on respect for private life and freedom of expression gave him the right to nudity whenever he chose it. But the Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled that they did not apply given his "deliberately repetitive antisocial conduct".

"He had plenty of other ways of expressing his opinions," it concluded.

Mammoth Carcass Shown In Moscow


Nearly 40,000 years old and in surprisingly good shape, the carcass of a woolly mammoth has gone on display in Moscow.

The scientists who found the teenage mammoth in 2010 in Russia's far north region of Yakutia have named it Yuka. The carcass had gone on display in Japan and Taiwan before it was exhibited in Moscow Tuesday.

Albert Protopopov, a researcher from Yakutia, said Yuka's carcass bore traces indicating that humans hunted for mammoths during the Ice Age. The young mammoth, aged between six and nine years old when it died, also had injuries left by an encounter with a predator, he said.

Protopopov told The Associated Press that Yuka is an estimated 38,000 years old, while other researchers have put its age at about 39,000.

Yuka was pulled out of permafrost in a spectacular condition, its soft tissues and reddish fur well preserved. Even most of its brain is intact, offering scientists a rare opportunity to study it.



Must See TV


Norway, which provided TV viewers with five hours of knitting live, showing a fire burning itself out and minute-by-minute salmon fishing, has found a new attraction - a rockslide on a mountain. But no one knows when it will happen.

For days, local media have focused webcams on the isolated, rubbly mountainside of Mannen in western Norway. National broadcaster NRK is streaming it live on its website.

Last week, 11 people were evacuated from the area, now declared a no-go zone.

Webcams cannot guarantee a good show. It might happen at night, and daytime viewing could be hampered by thick rain and mist.

Galapagos Tortoises Rally

Chelonoidis hoodensis

Conservationists said on Tuesday they have brought giant tortoises found on the Galapagos island of Espanola back from the brink of extinction, gaining a foothold strong enough to allow humans to leave the reptiles alone.

Numbering just 15 some five decades ago, the tortoises, which can live as long as two centuries, now number about 1,000 and can sustain themselves, according to a study published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE.

Located in the Pacific about 600 miles (1,000 km) west of Ecuador, the Galapagos archipelago is home to an array of unusual creatures that helped inspire Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection following his 1835 visit.

Espaņola giant Galapagos tortoises, their scientific name is Chelonoidis hoodensis, measure 3 feet (1 meter) long with a saddle-backed shell.
