M Is FOR MASHUP - RERUN - January 8th, 2014

Five Mashups Fresh From The Oven

By DJ Useo

Even here in Austin it's pretty stinking cold lately. So let's all bundle up in something warm, have a cuppa something, and enjoy the freshest mashups I could find. Each of these 5 is so new, you should blow on them a little to avoid burning your ears. Lets' begin with the first mix.

01-BDJ-"Country Dreamer". This just came over through my Itunes Ipod subscription. It's an amazing bootleg remix/mashup of an early seventies Macca tune. BDJ applies huge skill to this & the satisfaction arrives fully. Read more here, and listen, or download.
( )

02-Chocomang-"One More Night j'oublie tout (Elégance vs Maroon 5) is from one of my very favorite mixers. In this truly international blend you hear French pop vs American Pop Rock. The appeal that results is irresistible.
( )
( )

03-Kill_mR_DJ-"Talk To Me Again" (Coldplay vs John Newman vs Yeah Yeah Yeahs) is one of those seamless bootleg mixes that seem like they began this way. Coldplay fan or not, I'm sure this track'll be a treat to you.
( )

04-DJ Sunsite -"Yo Diggity (LaLaLa)" (Blackstreet vs Naughty Boy vs Chris Brown vs Miley Cyrus) has a really fresh 2014 sound that grabs ya right away. Even production with fine mixing drops you a keeper that you'll repeat often.
( )

05-JuDD3rMan 4-"American Sabbath" (Black Sabbath vs Lana Del Rey) will turn your head around with a pairing that goes successfully in different directions, yet does it in a most pleasing manner. Can you deal with classic metal with female pop vocals added? I bet you can.
( )

Have fun with these. You would be surprised how many more new tracks came over while I dealt with just these five.

A Special Note - Someone is complaining to my hosting hourly about my Beatles mashups. This means the links for them are being removed faster than I can re-up them. If you want them now, grab them tonight ( or soon) before they're all dead. I will re-host them all once this attack is sorted.
( )

Mix Of The Week

DJ Short-E-"JANUARY 2014 TOP 40 MASHUP MIX" delivers a superb live 30-minute mix that sounds way better than top 40 does. (To me) The audio is fantastic, plus you can check out DJ Short-E's live mixing efforts. They are finest kind.
( )

Mashup Tip

Learn to do vocal extractions. The word behind the scenes is that acapellas will become much more scarce.

Latest Useo Thing

As you know, I like to offer y'all several styles of tracks all at once. This week I did up a punk / psychedelic track, and also a pop rock / dubstep tune. I was keen on seeing if they accrued any listeners., and if they did, which would do better? Usually, the weirder the mix, the better it does. I know, it surprises me too.

So far 'What In The Prisoner Of Society World' ( The Living End vs The Dukes Of Stratosphere )
( )
( )
is summat (sic) behind 'Black Hole Explorer' ( Muse vs Placa ).
( )
( )

The reversal of audience preferences is even more interesting given that the Muse / Placa mix is so emotionally piercing that I myself can't hear it without tearing up. Gawrsh!

Podgornio, The Mashup Psychic Predicts

DJ Whallop will begin wearing a tin foil hat to prevent me from divining his mashup ideas before he makes them.

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.

'Yankee Doodle Dandy' Oscar To hit Auction

James Cagney

The late James Cagney's best actor Oscar statuette for the 1942 musical "Yankee Doodle Dandy" is expected to fetch at least $800,000 when it goes up for auction on Thursday in Los Angeles, auction house Nate D. Sanders said.

Cagney was one of the most enduring performers of Hollywood's golden era having starred in films like 1949's "White Heat" and 1938's "Angels with Dirty Faces." He was nominated for three Academy Awards.

It is rare for an Oscar statuette to go up for sale as the show's organizer, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, began making winners since 1951 agree to offer the prize back to the Academy for $1 before selling it.

Late actress Joan Fontaine's best actress Oscar statuette for Alfred Hitchcock's 1940 thriller "Rebecca" will go up for auction at Christie's next month.

Irish Bull Spared


He faced execution for failure to perform. But Benjy, the gay bull of Ireland, has been saved following a worldwide appeal backed by "The Simpsons" co-creator Sam Simon.

Ireland's Animal Rights Action Network said Tuesday that Simon is paying for Benjy's transportation to an animal sanctuary in England. Simon, who is battling colon cancer, has been giving away much of the fortune from his television career and is a leading donor to animal welfare causes.

Benjy, a Charlerois bull, failed this year to impregnate any heifers at a County Mayo farm in western Ireland. Veterinarians determined he was fertile, but was more attracted to the bull that replaced him.

After the farmer announced he planned to send Benjy to an abattoir, activists last week launched a social media campaign seeking 5,000 pounds ($7,825) to send the bull to the Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Norfolk, England, which is home for about 2,000 unwanted farm animals and horses. About 300 donors contributed 4,000 British pounds ($6,200) to an ongoing fundraising drive organized by the British online magazine TheGayUK.

Simon, who funds a Malibu dog shelter and many other animal rights projects, said he heard about Benjy's case through friends at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals pressure group. He said he was happy to donate the full original cash target to buy Benjy and ship him to England.

Letters Go On Sale

Famous Women

An unprecedented collection of 1,500 documents from some of history's greatest women is being auctioned in Paris, including everything from Catherine the Great's imperious letter shunning her lover, to Brigitte Bardot's plea to cancel the release of a song that ended up being banned in several countries owing to its sexual content.

Catherine of Aragon - the queen of England from 1509 until 1533, and the first of King Henry VIII's six wives - fell out of favour with the fearsome monarch after she failed to produce a son and heir. In the 1529 letter intended to reach the pope, she argues: "I am completely innocent" and being cast aside "without cause." She asks for Henry's planned annulment to be blocked. She also warns - correctly, as it turns out - that Henry will try to split from Rome. It's simply signed "Katherina." After their divorce, which was not recognized by the pope, Henry sets up a separate Church of England, with himself as its head.
It sold Tuesday for 68,750 euros ($86,000).

The famously amorous Catherine II of Russia, who was linked to the coup that killed her husband Peter III, is seen in this 1762 letter shunning her lover Stanislas Auguste Poniatowski. He wanted to come to Russia and become her new husband, but he is warned to stay away. Why? The fearsome Catherine had another lover and no intention of letting her old flame return to her life or take over her empire. "You read my letters with very little attention. I've told you and repeated that I risk being assaulted from all sides if you put one foot back in Russia," she says in the blunt letter.
It sold Tuesday for €17,500 ($22,000).

This 1962 image provided by Heritage Auctions shows an editorial cartoon by Bill Mauldin for the Chicago Sun-Times and Field Enterprises, questioning U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia years before the big buildup of American troops in Vietnam. It is one of the original Mauldin drawings offered by his family in an upcoming auction by Heritage Auctions set for Nov. 22-24. Two dozen original editorial cartoons created by the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and World War II veteran are set to hit the auction block as part of a major comic art auction in Beverly Hills, Calif. A native of New Mexico, Bill Mauldin became known during World War II for his Willie and Joe characters. He lifted the spirits of U.S. soldiers through the cartoons, which used edgy humor to depict the horrors of war.


World's Youngest

Microsoft Certified Professional

Last month, Ayan Qureshi passed the requisite exam that made him a Microsoft Certified Professional. This month, he turned 6.

Despite concerns that he was too young to take the two-hour test - exam invigilators called Microsoft to confirm the young boy could write it - Ayan got through the entire exam at Birmingham City University with time to spare.

The test is usually taken by adults hoping to become IT technicians.

The young resident of Coventry, England, who built his own computer in the computer lab his father created for him, is now the youngest officially recognized computer specialist in the world.

Wake-up Call


Surveillance Reform Blocked


A bill to end the National Security Agency's bulk collection of telephone records failed on a procedural vote in the U.S. Senate on Tuesday after senior Republicans said it would benefit enemies of the United States, including Islamic State militants.

The "USA Freedom Act" was supported by an unusual coalition of Democrats and conservative Republicans concerned about Americans' privacy, but failed 58 to 42, falling short of the 60 votes needed to move ahead.

The measure is unlikely to become law anytime soon, as Republicans will hold a majority of seats in the Senate after Jan. 1.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, the future Senate Majority Leader, came out strongly against the bill in a Senate speech on Tuesday morning, concerns matched by several hawkish Republicans including former government officials.

Fracking Permitted

George Washington National Forest

Environmentalists and energy boosters alike welcomed a federal compromise announced Tuesday that will allow fracking in the largest national forest in the eastern United States, but make most of its woods off-limits to drilling.

The decision was highly anticipated because about half of the George Washington National Forest sits atop the Marcellus shale formation, a vast underground deposit of natural gas that runs from upstate New York to West Virginia and yields more than $10 billion in gas a year.

The federal management plan reverses an outright ban on hydraulic fracturing that the U.S. Forest Service had proposed in 2011 for the 1.1 million-acre forest, which includes the headwaters of the James and Potomac rivers. Those rivers feed the Chesapeake Bay, which is the focus of a multibillion-dollar, multistate restoration directed by the Environmental Protection Agency.

A total ban would have been a first for America's national forests, which unlike national parks are commonly leased out for mining, timber and drilling. But some environmentalists were pleased that at least some balance was struck between energy development and conservation.

The signature of famed Dutch artist, Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn (1606-1669), is seen on the upper left corner of the etching, Self Portrait Leaning on a Stone Sill, ca.1639, at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, in Ithaca, NY, Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014. Prof. Richard Johnson, a Cornell University computer engineering professor, has developed a way to date and authenticate the centuries-old works by analyzing X-ray images of the art. Top museums in New York City and Europe have relied on his algorithm, which analyzes thread densities and average thread counts in canvas and paper.

Bankrolling Gender Traitors

Grover Norquist

Americans for Tax Reform, the anti-tax group headed by Grover Norquist, helped bankroll Independent Women's Voice, a conservative-leaning nonprofit that has pushed to elect Republican political candidates, according to new tax documents reviewed by the Center for Public Integrity.

In 2013, Americans for Tax Reform contributed $260,000 to Independent Women's Voice - a grant that accounted for about 13 percent of its $1.98 million in revenue last year.

Based in Washington, D.C., and led by Heather Higgins, Independent Women's Voice in recent years has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars backing Republican politicians such as 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Chris McDaniel, who unsuccessfully challenged incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., in a contentious primary earlier this year.

In 2013, Independent Women's Voice spent about $160,000, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission, aiding Republican Mark "Hiking The Appalachian Trail" Sanford (R-Family Values), the former governor of South Carolina, during a special election contest in which he ultimately prevailed over Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of comedian Stephen Colbert. It also wants to see President Barack Obama's health care reform law repealed .

Headlining Landrieu Fundraiser

Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder is lending a hand to endangered Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu.

The legendary musician is performing at a $1,000-per-person fundraiser Dec. 1 in New Orleans to drum up campaign cash for the Big Easy Committee, a joint committee that supports Landrieu and the Democratic State Central Committee of Louisiana.

The event is being advertised as an "Intimate Evening with Stevie Wonder." For $5,000, a couple also can attend a smaller "patron reception" with the musician.

Landrieu, who is seeking a fourth term, faces an uphill fight to re-election in the Dec. 6 runoff against Republican challenger U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy.
