M Is FOR MASHUP - November 16th, 2016

Ten Years Mashup Live Radio Celebration

By DJ Useo

So, it's been ten years of writing "M is For Mashup" for this swell site. I never would've thought it would happen. Many thanks to Marty for having me.

To mark this occasion, I'm going to be doing a live radio 2-hour set of classic mashups for y'all. I'll be starting the broadcast at 7 pm central & it'll be two 1-hour sets. Simply stream from this page, or log in to join the chat.
( )

I'd really like to welcome those of you who read the column. I'd especially love to have those of you who listen to the featured tracks join us. There's no charge, & no hassles, just click once & you'll hear the live show once it begins.

I plan to continue with the column. The only thing I'd like is if more of you commented, like during the first 5 years. But, no worries, my "dj slogan" has always been "Not Mandatory". Please tune in tonight for the "DJ Useo on BARTCOP E Live Mashup Radio Show".

With all the other things we've discussed so far today, I wanted to return to one critical one. It's not about mights or maybes or fears of what's to come. It's about what's coming just after President-Elect Trump's inauguration. Paul Ryan has been pushing to phase out Medicare and replace it with private insurance for several years. But now it's real with unified Republican government. He just said he will try to rush it through early next year while repealing Obamacare.

Rule #1: Believe the autocrat. He means what he says. Whenever you find yourself thinking, or hear others claiming, that he is exaggerating, that is our innate tendency to reach for a rationalization. This will happen often: humans seem to have evolved to practice denial when confronted publicly with the unacceptable.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Played for the bride's entrance at many formal weddings throughout the Western world, "Here Comes the Bride", is technically the "Bridal Chorus" from what opera?

       Lohengrin                                                      Source

The "Bridal Chorus" (German: Treulich geführt) from the 1850 opera Lohengrin by German composer Richard Wagner is a march played for the bride's entrance at many formal weddings throughout the Western world. In English-speaking countries it is generally known as "Here Comes the Bride" or "Wedding March".

The chorus is sung in Lohengrin by the women of the wedding party after the ceremony, as they accompany the heroine Elsa to her bridal chamber.        Source

Randall was first and correct with:
   Lohengrin by Wagner

Alan J wrote:

   It's from the opera "Lohengrin" by Richard Wagner. I've always found it rather stuffy.
  Warmer than normal. Leaves haven't peaked yet - maybe by the weekend. It just seems like a mild summer with shorter days.

Adam answered:
   Wagner's 'Lohengrin'.
  I insisted on the lovely 'Overture' from Star Trek-The Motion Picture.

DJ Useo replied:
   Yeah, ditto for me. ;)
  I must amend previous comments, as I now remember seeing "Lohengrin" in Detroit, & it was incredibly fine. I still get nosebleeds from the seats we had up near the ceiling.

The repugs have sent a bill to Governor Wolf to allow semi auto rifles (assault weapons) as a legal gun to hunt with.

People wearing fox masks take part in the "day without fur" demonstration near the Polish Sejm headquarters in Warsaw, Poland on November 15, 2016. The demonstrators oppose breeding canine animals for gaining the fur. In this case the signatures for a petition were gathered and stored in the Chancellery of the Sejm. The slogan on the posters says: "The victims of the Polish fur industry."

12th Animated Picture?

Hayao Miyazaki

The Japanese master of animation is thought to be preparing his 12th feature film, three years after announcing his retirement.

Just a few months after the release of his movie "The Wind Rises," in September 2013, Hayao Miyazaki took the decision to stop directing animated feature films. Now, as his 76th birthday approaches, the Japanese filmmaker could be coming out of retirement with an upcoming film entitled "Boro the Caterpillar."

Miyazaki has had the story of this little caterpillar in mind since the 1990s. In 1997, the director set the project aside to work on "Princess Mononoke," before taking it up again a few years later to create a short film for the Studio Ghibli museum, which opened on the outskirts of Tokyo, Japan, in 2001.

If the movie comes about, it will be the 12th feature-length film from Miyazaki, following "The Wind Rises," released in 2013. Since 1979's "The Castle of Cagliostro," the Japanese filmmaker's work has enjoyed success all around the world. Many of his works ("Castle in the Sky," "Spirited Away" and "My Neighbor Totoro") are now considered classics of the animated genre. Hollywood paid tribute to the director in 2014 with an honorary Oscar recognizing his entire career.

Is 'Lost' Notebook Real?

Vincent Van Gogh

The discovery of 65 previously unknown drawings said to be by Vincent Van Gogh set off a bitter row about their authenticity Tuesday, with Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum dismissing as fakes what others hailed as one of the biggest art world finds in years.

In a damning statement, the museum claimed the contents of the "so-called lost sketchbook" unveiled by French publishers were imitations and "could not be attributed to Vincent Van Gogh".

But the experts behind the discovery accused the museum of "jealousy", and told AFP that "it was not the first time the Van Gogh Museum has got it wrong".

The "lost" sketches come from the Dutch artist's time in the southern French city of Arles, when he produced some of his greatest paintings, including "Bedroom in Arles", "The Night Cafe" and "Still Life: Vase with Twelve Sunflowers".

The museum's dramatic intervention came as the respected French publishing house Le Seuil was unveiling copies of the sketches to reporters in Paris.

Expedition To Find More

Dead Sea Scrolls

Israel is embarking on a major archaeological expedition to find yet undiscovered Dead Sea Scrolls, an Israeli antiquities official said Monday.

Amir Ganor of the Israel Antiquities Authority said a government research team will spend the next three years surveying hundreds of caves in the Judean Desert near the Dead Sea, the arid region where the Dead Sea Scrolls, the world's oldest biblical manuscripts, were preserved for thousands of years and discovered in 1947.

In a move that is bound to stir controversy, the researchers may also excavate Dead Sea-area caves in the West Bank, Ganor said. Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Mideast War, and the Palestinians want the territory to establish an independent state.

Ganor discussed details of the project with The Associated Press ahead of an official announcement.

The expedition will begin in December and will be funded by the Israeli prime minister's office, Ganor said. A spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Pangolin Rehab


Pangolin Mi Bo has seen better days. He arrived at a rescue centre in Vietnam missing a paw after it was cut off in a snare trap.

The rest of his body is marked by red lacerations, and he will probably never regain enough strength to return to the wild. But he is among the lucky ones.

Rescued from poachers, Mi Bo and dozens of other pangolins are being nursed back to health by Vietnamese conservationists fighting to save the scale-covered creatures from extinction.

The reclusive pangolin has become the most trafficked mammal on earth due to soaring demand in Asia for their scales for traditional medicine and their flesh, considered a delicacy.

An estimated one million of the animals, often called "scaly anteaters", have been plucked from Asian and African forests over the past decade, shunting them onto the list of species at the highest risk of extinction.

Set To Break Heat Record


Global temperatures are soaring toward a record high this year, the U.N. weather agency said Monday, while another report showed emissions of a key global warming gas have flattened out in the past three years.

The reports injected a mix of gloom and hope at U.N. climate talks in Marrakech this week.

WMO's preliminary data through October showed world temperatures, boosted by the El Nino phenomenon, are 1.2 degrees Celsius (2.2 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels.

That's getting close to the limit set by the global climate agreement adopted in Paris last year. It calls for limiting the temperature rise since the industrial revolution to 2 degrees C or even 1.5 degrees C.

WMO said 16 of the 17 hottest years have occurred this century. The only exception was 1998, which was also an El Nino year.

Telescope Appeal


Hawaii's land board is urging the state Supreme Court to quickly dismiss an appeal by opponents of a proposed telescope on a dormant Big Island volcano that is viewed as sacred by some Native Hawaiians.

The appeal filed last week is premature because no final decision has been made on whether the Thirty Meter Telescope will receive a construction permit, state lawyers say in a motion. The opponents are appealing various decisions that have been made during an ongoing contested-case hearing process, including time limits for parties to question witnesses.

"Because of the statewide importance of the underlying contested-case hearing, the board requests that this court act as soon as possible," the motion said.

In 2011, telescope opponents requested so-called contested-case hearings before the land board approved a permit to build on conservation land. The hearings were held, and the permit was upheld. Opponents then sued.

In December 2015, the state Supreme Court revoked the permit, ruling the land board's approval process was flawed. That meant the application process needed to be redone, requiring a new hearing.



Judge Orders Feds To Disclose Surveillance


A federal judge has ordered the FBI and other federal agencies to turn over any potential evidence they spied on Occupy Philadelphia protesters.

The FBI, CIA and National Security Agency have 60 days to comply with the order from Senior U.S. District Judge Berle M. Schiller. The order follows another right-to-know case that revealed the FBI was monitoring Occupy Wall Street activities in New York and spinoff efforts from Florida to Alaska.

Civil rights lawyer Paul Hetznecker hopes to learn if the agencies surveilled demonstrators who encamped outside Philadelphia City Hall for seven weeks in 2011 to protest income inequality.

The FBI has turned over seven redacted pages in response to his right-to-know lawsuit. The judge plans to review the unredacted FBI document and information from the CIA and NSA to determine if the material should be made public.

A right-to-know request filed by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund in 2012 led the FBI to disclose its efforts to monitor Occupy Wall Street activities. The documents released showed the FBI sharing information about Occupy's plans with banks, businesses and local police, even as it acknowledged the protesters' nonviolent mission.

Releases App To Digitize Old Photos


Google wants to make digitizing your many boxes of old photo prints as easy as opening an app.

The PhotoScan app for iPhones and Android phones will use the phone's camera to capture an old photo in four sections and stitch them together, much like a panorama shot. Google says this approach helps eliminate glare that can mar attempts to digitize a print by simply photographing the whole photo.

The app will make minor adjustments to restore color in faded photos and to aligned corners when the photo print is bent.

Julia Winn, a product manager for the new app, said scanning photos with traditional scanners takes time, while third-party digitizing services cost money and require you to part with your photos temporarily, risking loss and damage.

The free app, released Tuesday, will work with photos on a table, a picture frame and an album. It will also digitize slides when projected on a wall. Winn said the resolution of the digitized photo will be comparable to that from a flatbed scanner.

In Memory

Mose Allison

Renowned jazz blues pianist, singer and songwriter Mose Allison died Tuesday at his home in Hilton Head, S.C. He was 89.

A native of Mississippi, Allison grew up on his grandfather's farm, where he started taking piano lessons at age 5 and shortly after began writing his own songs. His musical career took off in 1956, when he joined a quintet with the prominent saxophonist Al Cohn. By 1957, Allison produced his first album "Back Country Suite," which combined sounds evocative of his southern background combined with a blues emphasis.

Allison rose to fame with his most renowned album "Mose Allison Sings," a collection of his vocals from his previous albums that paid homage to artists of the Mojo Triangle, a geographical and cultural region including New Orleans, Nashville and Memphis that is known as the birthplace of jazz, blues, country and rock 'n' roll.

Although Allison's album count dwindled in the mid-1970s, he still continued to write songs. In 2006, he was placed in the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, the same year he recorded a live album entitled "Mose Allison American Legend, Live in California," which was released in 2015. In 2013 he was honored as a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master, which is the highest honor for jazz musicians.

Allison is survived by his wife of 65 years, Audre, four children and two grandchildren.
