M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - March 25th, 2015

AudioBoots WORLDS GREATEST CLUB MASHUPS Arrives!

By DJ Useo







Yes, the album I wrote about a couple weeks back, AudioBoots WORLDS GREATEST CLUB MASHUPS ( www.suprmchaos.com/bcEnt-Wed-030415.index.html ) has now appeared! The "tweaking" of the tracks, art, & texts had to be immaculate, & that took extra time. Now that the 3-disc set is available, it's obvious the extra attention to detail paid off. Y'know, when we announced this project, the idea was to limit contributors to a mere two submissions. Then, the tracks started arriving. I quickly found myself confronted with as many as 6 offerings from one person with each being too great to refuse.

















Thus, the planned 2-disc set swelled to three. In addition, there's soon going to be a long mix of each disc created by three gifted deejays. I've heard the first long mix already, ( from DJ MXR ) & I was powerful impressed. I realize that there's an offhand chance that some of you reading this column ( you are still there, right? ) might not be into club music. Well, we planned for that by making the tracks irresistible. Also, awesome contributor AtoZ assembled a video for his track "Gonna Make You Work It Out" ( Beatles & Friends vs C & C Music Factory ) that opens the album ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwxLfx87YjY ).

















Using the expression "assembled a video for his track" actually doesn't describe what a great experience the video is. The audio mix is already, like, the coolest. AtoZ does so much with established imagery in this gem that you'll smile, & you'll definitely dance. No doubt that more AudioBoots WGCM videos will appear soon. I hope you'll take a gander at the super page AudioBoots Co-Owner Chocomang created for the release ( audioboots.com/WORLDSGREATESTCLUBMASHUPS/ ). There's some cool visual effects, & you can stream, or download the entire album! Forum janitor BastardWhitey also helped with something ( but I forget what?! )

















The HUGE list of tracks can also be seen here ( audioboots.com/forum/index.php?p=/discussion/643/audioboots-worlds-greatest-club-mashups-all-new ) There's great source artists abounding all over this marvelous collection. Listen for bits of the Sugarhill Gang, Human League, Stevie Wonder, Gloria Gaynor, & many more that you can read & hear from here ( audioboots.com/forum/index.php?p=/discussion/643/audioboots-worlds-greatest-club-mashups-all-new ) There's plans for two different radio stations to broadcast the entire 3 hours. I'll clue y'all in when that happens.



















It's an amazing thrill when you can gather together such talent as ToToM, DJ Spider,Chocomang,Oki,
























DJ MXR, Tweylo, DRA'man, DJ GAYA, DJ Rudec,AtoZ,Boots Leg Pharm,DJ Useo, Zigmund Fraud, and Lizard. Big thanks to everybody. We've included links to our sites, in case you want more, and you will!

























So, that's part of our plan to celebrate a year of our new mashup forum AudioBoots ( audioboots.com/ ).

























More to come soon! Please resume your non-bootleg music reading at this time.

Ranks First

Canada

A new study reveals that the United States' neighbor to the north has the "freest country in the world," with the greatest tolerance for immigrants worldwide.

Canada's ranking as the top nation in the world for personal freedom can be found in the Legatum Institute's 2015 Prosperity Index. The London-based international public policy think tank released its findings Monday.

For a broad look at prosperity, the educational charity ranked 142 countries in eight categories: the economy, entrepreneurship/opportunity, governance, education, health, safety/security, social capital and personal freedom.

The United States ranked 15th worldwide.

Celebrates 35 Year

The Planetary Society

Led by Bill Nye "The Science Guy," with help from astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, space exploration advocacy organization The Planetary Society recently celebrated its 35th anniversary and the opening of its new headquarters in Pasadena, California.

Founded in 1980 by a group of scientists that included famed astronomer and science popularizer Carl Sagan, the nonprofit Planetary Society is "the largest and most influential public space organization group on Earth," according to its website. In 2010, Nye took the job of chief executive officer for the organization.

The audience gasped when Nye asked Tyson, "Are you 'Star Trek' or 'Star Wars'?"

"I, as a scientist and a rationalist - if you're going to do the Kessel Run, you should do it in a unit of time, not a unit of distance," he said. (Tyson is referencing a line from one of the "Star Wars" movies in which a character says that a ship "made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs." Parsecs are a unit of distance, where the character clearly means a measure of time).

"So, I'm 'Star Trek.' Of course I'm 'Star Trek!' Tyson exclaimed. "I got nothing against 'Star Wars' people. Just don't ask me to comment on the science of 'Star Wars,' because there is none!"

Won't Be Intimidated

Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino says he won't be intimidated by police groups calling for a boycott of his upcoming film after he spoke against police brutality.

In his first comments about the controversy, Tarantino told The Los Angeles Times on Tuesday that the law enforcement groups that have criticized him are attempting to bully him. "Instead of dealing with the problem of police brutality in this country, better they single me out," Tarantino told the Times.

Tarantino signalled that he isn't backing down from comments he made last month at a Brooklyn rally against police brutality where he said he was "on the side of the murdered."

The director added Tuesday that "all cops are not murderers."

Heading To HBO Kinda Sorta

Jon Stewart

You would have thought that with post-Daily Show Jon Stewart growing out a beard, he was done with the media and ready to move to a cabin and start his own line of chainsaw-carved bears. But nope! He's back at it, starting an interesting-which is a nice way of saying peculiar-venture with HBO. Stewart and HBO have signed a four-year deal for J-Stew to create content for HBO.

Except it's not actually HBO as you know it. Stewart will use his news sense to create short-form digital content for HBO NOW, HBO GO, and other online platforms. It's a bit hazy as to what exactly he'll be doing, but HBO describes it as "timely short-form digital content, which will be refreshed on HBO NOW multiple times throughout the day." The project will also involve new technology from "pioneering cloud graphics company" OTOY that will help him put snippets together lickety split. It sounds like short videos discussing breaking news that could be shared and distributed around the Web, but if they're exclusive on HBO GO and HBO NOW, how will everyone see them? Hmm...

The deal also includes a first-look option at anything Stewart creates, which sounds like the real deal behind the deal. While it probably won't involve a next-gen Daily Show starring Stewart-particularly when they already have Last Week Tonight with John Oliver-it does mean Stewart could slap his name on a new HBO drama or comedy.

With Stewart on board, it seems HBO is stockpiling free-agent talent. HBO also recently signed a deal with ESPN castoff Bill Simmons, and of course HBO also has Oliver. And don't forget about the deal to bring on Sesame Street, which is the ultimate on-demand show for busy parents. With Simmons, Stewart, andSesame Street, could HBO be planning a new take on the online platform? Is HBO changing the way we watch TV? It looks that way.

Becoming Less Religious

Americans

Americans are becoming less religious, judging by such markers as church attendance, prayer and belief in God, and the trend is more pronounced among young adults, according to a poll released on Tuesday.

The share of U.S. adults who say they believe in God, while still high compared with other advanced industrial countries, slipped to 89 percent in 2014 from 92 percent in 2007, according to the Pew Research Center's Religious Landscape Study.

The proportion of Americans who say they are "absolutely certain" God exists fell even more, to 63 percent in 2014 from 71 percent in 2007.

The survey also found religious divides among the political parties, with those who are not religiously affiliated more likely to be Democrats, at 28 percent, compared to 14 percent of Republicans.

About 38 percent of Republicans identify as evangelical Protestants - the largest religious group in the party, the survey found. Catholics make up 21 percent of each major political party.

San Onofre Nuke Dump

California

A civilian watchdog group sued a California coastal agency on Tuesday, seeking to overturn its decision to allow 1,800 tons (1,632 tonnes) of radioactive waste from a closed nuclear power plant to be buried in containers not far from a beach.

Citizens Oversight Inc. asked a San Diego Superior Court to reverse an Oct. 6 ruling by the California Coastal Commission that Southern California Edison could bury uranium fuel rod assemblies in steel casks on the property of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, which closed in 2012 after unexpected equipment failures.

"This is the dumbest nuclear dump ever," said lawyer Michael Aguirre, who represents the group. "It isn't safe, it isn't smart and it places every Southern California resident under a nuclear sword of Damocles."

The commission unanimously approved the utility company's plan to store the spent fuel rods in steel casks with walls that are 5/8 of an inch (1.6 cm) thick until at least 2051.

The storage site is adjacent to a popular state beach with Richard Nixon's so-called "western White House" just north of the park. More than 8 million people living in a 50-mile (80 km) radius.

Weighs $20M For Planes

Navajo Nation

Lawmakers on the Navajo Nation have given the OK for a team to negotiate a $20 million loan to acquire three new planes, raising questions among tribal members about the priorities on the vast reservation where half the workforce is unemployed and thousands live without running water and electricity.

The tribe has three Beechcraft King Air turboprop planes that have taken tribal officials to meetings in Flagstaff, Phoenix and Salt Lake City, to the nation's capital for President Barack Obama's inauguration and to Colorado to assess a mine spill.

The sponsor of the loan package, Davis Filfred, said the planes put into service in the late 1980s and early 1990s will be grounded next year because it's too costly to keep overhauling their engines and other parts are badly worn.

"It reinforces the perception of Navajo Nation leadership that the people feel we're out of touch with the everyday struggles of our people," Delegate Amber Crotty said in an interview. "I don't believe the government would shut down if we don't have aircraft."

Tomb Tells Tale

Wu Zetian

A 1,300-year-old tomb, discovered in Xi'an city, China, holds the bones of a man who helped the nation's only female emperor rise to power. The epitaphs in the tomb describe how she then executed him and his entire family.

Located within a cave, the tomb contains the remains of Yan Shiwei and his wife, Lady Pei. While little is left of the individual's skeletons, archaeologists found colorful ceramic figurines, a mirror with a gold plaque and, most importantly, epitaphs inscribed on bluestones.

The tomb and its epitaphs were described recently in the journal Chinese Cultural Relics by researchers from the Xi'an Municipal Institute of Archaeology and Conservation of Cultural Heritage.

Wu Zetian started out as a concubine of Emperor Gaozong (649-683), eventually becoming his empress and gaining a high degree of influence over him.

After the emperor's death, Wu Zetian declared that she would rule China as Empress Dowager with her son, Emperor Ruizong. The epitaphs say that shortly after her declaration, a duke named Xu Jingye led a rebellion in Jiangdu (modern-day Yangzhou).

In early afternoons, on a hill near famous Larung Wuming Buddhist Institute relatives and onlookers gather for sky burials in which bodies of deceased people are offered to vultures to prey upon it. Such burials are practiced by some Tibetans and Mongolian in China as an extreme type of Buddhist's "self-sacrifice almsgiving". It is believed that feeding vultures with decomposed corpse of relatives on top of a mountain is a respectful to pay tribute to their passed-away beloved ones. Picture taken October 31, 2015.
