M Is FOR MASHUP - November 5th, 2014 ( Not Halloween any more…sigh )

Fishing With Mashups

By DJ Useo

In addition to live gigs, I've done a lot of radio shows as well. All the radio shows were for online radio stations, which are great, but can be problematic in reaching listeners. Promotion is largely word of mouth, & there's fierce competition because of the sheer number of stations. Personally, I am so well stocked for music, that I don't even need radio at all. YET…there's awesome stations galore! Living in Austin as I do, there's even many fine FM stations that are fantastic. I actually heard one of my Halloween mashups on a far left of the dial station. Ni-ice,eh?

The radio concept comes in for me, because I'm still in the position of trying to lure in listeners. After more than ten years of posting my mashups, I've developed a method that keeps me quite interested. I post three mashups at once, each on different hosting. One will be "mainstream", one will be more "alternative", & the third will be completely insane. Lol. The most amazing thing about the competition this sets up is that it's not unusual for the strange track to be the one that draws in the most listeners. I have a theory that the strange ones do so well because not a lot of people make tracks like that. Not so much competition for that "style", you see?

Here's a batch of my tracks posted in the above mentioned manner:

01-mainstream, 02-alternative, & 03-strange, & the actual numbers they accrued.

Batch one - ( only posted a few hours at this point )

01-"You've Got Another Thing Comin' If You Wanna" ( Judas Priest vs The Vaccines ) 9 plays
( )

02-"Rockin' Catawompus Girls" ( Sparks vs Bogtrotter ) 3 plays
( )

03-"Floyd The Sheep Barber" ( Floyd The Barber vs Pink Floyd ) 8 plays
( )

Batch two - ( posted for 5 days )

01-"Strict Sunny Machine" ( Goldfrapp vs Bobby Hebb ) 75 plays
( )

02-"Hack Attack Boulevard" ( Green Day vs Sigue Sigue Sputnik ) 37 plays
( )

03-"Oldskool Lithium" ( Bruce Lash vs Alvaro & Van Dalen ) 103 plays
( )

Batch three - ( Posted for over a week )

01-"Grey Matter Blood On The Dancefloor" ( Michael Jackson vs Oingo Boingo ) 127 plays
( )

02-"Midlife Taxman Crisis" ( Beatles vs Faith No More ) 58 plays
( )

03-"Banana Bach Goes Surfing" ( Hoosier Hotshots vs The Surftones vs The Minions from 'Despicable Me' ) 145 plays
( )

Batch four - ( Posted for almost 2 months )

01-"Teenage Working Man Riot" ( Rush vs Sonic Youth vs The Police ) 119 plays
( )

02-"Pumpin Bad Blood" ( NoNoNo vs Bastille ) 46 plays
( )

03-"Blue Jay Way Closer" ( The Button/Beatles vs Tim Maloney )

(Did so well I had to change hosting 3 times. Current new link only has 9 plays. )

Batch five - ( posted for one year, approx. )

01-"Twerkit Bass Star" ( Busta Rhymes Feat Nicki Minaj vs Bare ) ( necessary multiple hosts, lost track of play numbers, current host numbers 136 )
( )

02-"Oh Darling Millions" ( The Beatles vs XTC ) ( 2nd host, currently 64 plays )
( )

03-"Who Needs Kryptonite" ( 3 Doors Down vs Frank Zappa ) 7667 plays ( + 29,385 downloads!!!)
( )

These tracks are not intended for the same listeners. I figure most people don't even like mashups, let alone such wide stylistic variations. It's why my dj slogan has always been " Not Mandatory!". ;) Still, I do know of people who go for whatever I make. A good feeling results!

Draw whatever conclusions you like from these stats. Bear in mind, these are the numbers provided to me, & I can't verify them. I tell ya, though, they make me happy,anyway. I love listening to my own mixes, knowing others are listening at the same time as me. Just imagine if the numbers translated into actual fish !?

I could open my own Red Lobster restaurant. Lol!

Trivia Question from Yesterday

A shake, an informal unit of time, is equal to how many nanoseconds?

      10 Nanoseconds                                                      Source

A shake is an informal unit of time equal to 10 nanoseconds, or 10-8 seconds. It has applications in nuclear physics, helping to conveniently express the timing of various events in a nuclear explosion. The typical time required for one step in the chain reaction (i.e. the typical time for each neutron to cause a fission event which releases more neutrons) is of order 1 shake, and the chain reaction is typically complete by 50 to 100 shakes.

This is also applicable to circuits. Since signal progression in IC chips is very rapid, on the order of nanoseconds, a shake is good measure of how quickly a signal can progress through an IC.        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.

Keeping A Good Woman Down

Aung San Suu Kyi

Despite hailing Myanmar Burma opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi as "an icon of democracy," U.S. President Barack Obama is quietly acquiescing to the government's decision to bar her from running for the presidency in next year's election, U.S. officials say.

Obama, who visits Myanmar Burma next week, appears to be balancing his push for democratic reforms with a desire to maintain influence with a government that remains deeply suspicious of Suu Kyi and is led by some of the same former generals who kept her under house arrest for 15 years.

U.S. reluctance to press for assurances that the Nobel Peace Prize winner can contest next year's general election is sure to disappoint her supporters, some of whom spent years in prison until the Southeast Asian country ended 49 years of direct military rule in 2011 and launched reforms.

Clarification of Washington's hands-off stance on Suu Kyi's political future comes at a time when Myanmar Burma's leaders have been widely accused of backsliding in the transition process.

Highest Paid Woman In Music


Beyonce is the highest paid woman in music in 2014, with estimated earnings of $115 million, more than double what she pulled in last year, Forbes magazine said on Tuesday.

The huge sum, most of which was from her world tour, propelled Beyonce, 33, from fourth place last year and put her firmly ahead of pop star Taylor Swift, 24, with $64 million, who jumped up one spot from last year to No. 2.

Pop singer Pink, 35, climbed up from No. 8 in 2013 to third with $52 million.

Barbados-born Rihanna, 26, with $48 million and Katy Perry, 30, who earned an estimated $40 million, rounded out the top five on the annual list.

Madonna, 56, ranked No. 1 last year, failed to make the top 10 in 2014. Lady Gaga, 28, slumped from No. 2 in 2013 to ninth place this year with estimated earnings of $33 million.

Do Unto Others

Fort Lauderdale

Late last month, the city of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., passed a series of laws that restricted where organizations could feed the homeless.

On Sunday, when a 90-year-old man received a citation in Stranahan Park, the effects of these new laws came into full view.

Arnold Abbott, who is ordered to appear in court, says that hundreds of homeless people had gathered in the park and then police arrived. Police issued court orders to him and two members of the clergy, who were handing out food. He says he faces a maximum of 60 days in jail.

Mr. Abbott is a longtime advocate. He says he has been feeding the homeless at a local beach for more than 20 years, and he founded his organization, Love Thy Neighbor, in 1991. He says he will return to that beach Wednesday night - and expects a repeat of Sunday's interaction with police.

Mayor Jack Seiler, who was unavailable for an interview by press time, told the Sun Sentinel that providing homeless people with a meal perpetuates a "cycle of homeless" in Fort Lauderdale.

World's Finest Dram

Yamazaki Single Malt

A Japanese single malt whisky was named the world's best for the first time by a prestigious guide released Monday, which failed to place a Scotch in its top ranking.

The Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry Cask 2013 was described as "thick, dry, as rounded as a snooker ball" by Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, which awarded it a record-equalling 97.5 points out of 100.

Three bourbons from the US took second, third and fourth places -- William Larue Weller, Sazerac Rye 18 Year Old and Four Roses.

Whisky has been made commercially in Japan since the 1920s after a Japanese student who studied in Glasgow, Masataka Taketsuru, moved home with his Scottish wife and helped start the Yamazaki distillery near Kyoto.

Wake-up Call


"Christian Higher Education Institution"

Tri-Valley University

A San Francisco woman was sentenced to more than 16 years in prison for running what prosecutors said was a sham university that served as a front for an immigration scam.

Susan Xiao-Ping Su, founder and president of the phony Tri-Valley University, was accused of charging hundreds of foreigners, mostly Indian nationals, tuition and other payments for visa-related documents that allowed them to live and work in the U.S. while she purported that they were here legally to study. She made more than $5.6 million and used the money to buy commercial real estate, a Mercedes Benz and multiple homes, including one at a golf club, federal prosecutors said Monday.

U.S. District Court Judge Jon S. Tigar sentenced Su, 44, on Friday after she was convicted in March of visa fraud and other charges. She was also ordered to forfeit $5.6 million and pay more than $900,000 in restitution to two companies that processed payments from students, authorities said. Su's attorney, John Jordan, said he has filed a notice of appeal with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Most of the students appeared to know they were taking part in a fraudulent scheme, said Mitchell Rose, a supervisory special agent with Homeland Security Investigations in San Francisco.

They received visa-related documents in exchange for about $2,700 a semester, Rose said.

Justices Sympathetic?

TSA Whistleblower

U.S. Supreme Court justices on Tuesday appeared to be leaning toward ruling that a former air marshal can seek whistleblower protections for disclosing sensitive information to the news media about the absence of security officers on certain flights.

During an hour-long oral argument, a majority of the nine justices sounded skeptical about the case made by President Barack Obama's administration, which is seeking to reverse an appeals court ruling favoring whistleblower Robert MacLean, who was fired for the 2003 leak.

MacLean told an MSNBC reporter the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) had decided not to assign air marshals to certain long-distance flights, a decision he disagreed with. He said the decision was made soon after the TSA told marshals of a potential plot to hijack U.S. airplanes.

The TSA places undercover armed air marshals on some commercial U.S. flights to monitor security.

The legal question is whether MacLean's actions may be protected by the U.S. Whistleblower Protection Act, a law that protects employees if a disclosure exposes unlawful conduct, gross mismanagement or threats to public safety.

Court Grills Opponents

Phone Data Collection

A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday grilled opponents of the U.S. government program that collects millions of Americans' phone records, casting doubt on whether it would uphold a lower court ruling that found the program was likely unlawful.

This case is one of a handful brought against the program run by the National Security Agency since its existence was revealed in June 2013 by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

U.S. government officials say the program sweeps up numbers dialed and length and time of calls but not the content of communications or the locations of cell phones.

They contend the program, which aims to search for connections to terrorist groups, is legal. Opponents say it violates U.S. citizens' privacy rights.

Experts expect the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the issue once several appeals courts weigh in, if they produce conflicting rulings.

Group Protests Ad


Shy bladder sufferers want DirecTV to stop airing a television ad where a "painfully awkward" actor Rob Lowe says that he can't urinate in public.

The satellite TV company suggests its critics should be able to take a joke.

Part of a campaign to encourage people to switch from cable, the ad features two Lowes: a handsome one in a slick suit who claims to be a DirecTV customer, and a goofy-looking Lowe wearing a fanny pack with his hair parted in the middle. "Painfully awkward" Lowe is a cable customer.

The ad is in poor taste and ridicules a serious problem, said Steve Soifer, CEO of the International Paruresis Association, which estimates that some 7 percent of Americans have some form of "shy bladder syndrome."

Members of his group have written and called DirecTV, asking that the ad be removed. But Darris Gringeri, spokesman for DirecTV, said it won't.

In this photo provided by San Diego Zoo Global, four almost 4-month-old cheetah cubs rest alongside their mother at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014 in Escondido, Calif. The cubs, two males and two females, were born to first-time mother Addison on July 13 at the Safari Park's off-site cheetah breeding center. The family was moved to their new habitat at the Safari Park's Okavango Outpost this week. Keepers describe Addison as an excellent mom, calm, confident and extremely protective. They describe the cubs as very vocal, curious and playful, each with their own distinct temperament. Cheetahs are found in Africa and a small portion of Iran. They are classified as vulnerable on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List. It is estimated that the worldwide population of cheetahs has been reduced from 100,000 in 1900 to just 10,000 today, with about ten percent living in zoos or wildlife parks.

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.
