M Is FOR MASHUP - December 6th, 2017

Little Rocket Man Mashup Video

By DJ Useo

Two of the world's best home producers have teamed up to do a trump mashup & video. AtoZ, & Voicedude mixed the audio, & AtoZ crafted the intriguing visual film. They both had this to say -

"Released ahead of the eventually upcoming Elton Mash Comp "Mashmen Across The Waters".

AtoZ and Voicedude ( the finest & 2nd biggest contributor to the comp ) both had Elton on the brain. So when he sent a link to Colbert's spoof of Pretzeldent Rump's "rocket man" speech, AtoMe was quickly engorged with nifty ideas !

His reaction to an early mix was "well NOW we're collaborating . . send me them tracks !"

He took my "throw everything & see what sticks" mix and focused it brilliantly . . adding a few major parts of wow as well !

I then found some spots on the "tree" that needed an ornament here n' there and we now have "The Rocket Pacifier ( Stage 3 )".

Now let's get it out there, ahead of The Comp, before Rump continues doing 8 audacious things a day and the Rocket Man speech seems as far in the past as Scaramucci or ambassador shoving !!"

The discussed work "The Rocket Pacifier - Stage 3 - Trump vs Un vs Elton" is found here

Both Voicedude & AtoZ have plenty more awesome works here

I hope you can stand more on this subject. It remains very relevant.

So it was in the beginning: I was born in a sanatorium in Budapest, Hungary, wherefrom, after a day or two, I was translated home to my mother's bedroom in an airy apartment that housed, among other things, many books.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

This single was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on 14 December 1970 and was one of the biggest-selling singles of 1971. This song was also the first number-one single by an ex-Beatle. What is the title?

       "My Sweet Lord"                                                      Source

"My Sweet Lord" is a song by English musician and Beatle, George Harrison. It was released in November 1970 on his triple album All Things Must Pass. Also issued as a single, Harrison's first as a solo artist, "My Sweet Lord" topped charts worldwide and was the biggest-selling single of 1971 in the UK. In America and Britain, the song was the first number-one single by an ex-Beatle. Harrison originally gave the song to his fellow Apple Records artist Billy Preston to record; this version, which Harrison co-produced, appeared on Preston's Encouraging Words album in September 1970.

The recording features producer Phil Spector's Wall of Sound treatment and heralded the arrival of Harrison's much-admired slide guitar technique, which one biographer described as being "musically as distinctive a signature as the mark of Zorro". Preston, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, and the group Badfinger are among the other musicians appearing on the recording.

The single was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on 14 December 1970 for sales of over 1 million copies. It reached number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on 26 December, remaining on top for four weeks, three of which coincided with All Things Must Pass's seven-week reign atop the Billboard albums chart. It was the biggest-selling single of 1971 in the UK and performed similarly well around the world, particularly in France and Germany, where it held the top spot for nine and ten weeks, respectively.        Source

Mark. was first, and correct, with:
   "My Sweet Lord" by George Harrison was the first number-one single by a former Beatle.

Gene said:
   George Harrison's My Sweet Lord. George was also the last ex-Beatle with a number one hit-the last being I Got My Mind Set on You.

Alan J replied:
   My Sweet Lord by Harrison.

Adam answered:
   'My Sweet Lord'

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   This Is Love (George Harrison song)

Deborah said:
   That would be George Harrison's song "My Sweet Lord" and what an ear worm that song was/is. "Hare Krishna" indeed.

Kevin K. in Washington, DC wrote:
   "My Sweet Lord" by George Harrison from "All Things Must Pass', with Ringo Starr and Jim Keltner on the drums, Klaus Voorman on bass, George and Eric Clapton on guitar.
  More trivia: McCartney had his first post-Beatles #1 later in '71 with "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey". Ringo was next with his first #1 in late '73 with "Photograph", co-written with Harrison, who also plays guitar on it, Klaus Voorman on base, Keltner and Ringo on drums. John Lennon came in last, with his first #1 in 1974, "Whatever Gets You Through the Night", a duet of sorts with Elton John on vocals and piano, Klaus Voorman on bass, Jim Keltner on drums. George's third and last #1, 1987's "Got My Mind Set On You" has Ringo and Keltner on drums, and Elton John on piano. Although he played on other songs on the album "Cloud 9", Clapton apparently was not on "GMMSOY". Ringo's second #1, "You're Sixteen" (release in late '73, made #1 in early '74) features Paul McCartney singing backup in a manner that sounds like a kazoo, Voorman's on the bass.

Billy in Cypress replied:
   George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord".

Dave in Tucson answered:
   I'm going to guess the first number 1 single by an ex-Beatle is My Sweet Lord by George Harrison.

Marc's Guide to Curing Cancer

So far so good on beating cancer for now. I'm doing fine. At the end of the month I'll be 16 months into an 8 month mean lifespan. And yesterday I went on a 7 mile hike and managed to keep up with the hiking group I was with. So, doing something right.

Still waiting for future test results and should see things headed in the right direction. I can say that it's not likely that anything dire happens in the short term so that means that I should have time to make several more attempts at this. So even if it doesn't work the first time there are a lot of variations to try. So if there's bad news it will help me pick the next radiation target.

I have written a "how to" guide for oncologists to perform the treatment that I got. I'm convinced that I'm definitely onto something and whether it works for me or not isn't the definitive test. I know if other people tried this that it would work for some of them, and if they improve it that it will work for a lot of them.

The guide is quite detailed and any doctor reading this can understand the procedure at every level. I also go into detail as to how it works, how I figured it out, and variations and improvements that could be tried to enhance it. I also introduce new ways to look at the problem. There is a lot of room for improvement and I think that doctors reading it will see what I'm talking about and want to build on it. And it's written so that if you're not a doctor you can still follow it. It also has a personal story revealing that I'm the class clown of cancer support group. I give great interviews and I look pretty hot in a lab coat.

So, feel free to read this and see what I'm talking about. But if any of you want to help then pass this around to both doctors and cancer patients. I need some media coverage. I'm looking for as many eyeballs as possible to read these ideas. Even if this isn't the solution, it's definitely on the right track. After all, I did hike 7 miles yesterday. And this hiking group wasn't moving slow. So if this isn't working then, why am I still here?

I also see curing cancer as more of an engineering problem that a medical problem. So if you are good at solving problems and most of what you know about medicine was watching the Dr. House MD TV show, then you're at the level I was at when I started. So anyone can jump in and be part of the solution.

Long-Lost Christmas Record Turns Up

Paul McCartney

Christmas has come early for fans of Paul McCartney and the Beatles. The long-lost recording he made for the holidays in 1965 has resurfaced online.

"Unforgettable" was so rare that only three acetate discs were produced, with one given to each member of the Beatles.

While bootlegs have been quietly traded over the years, that tape - or what remained of it - has now been posted online.

McCartney essentially acted as DJ as he made a playlist for his bandmates to enjoy over the holidays.

The compilations included songs from Nat King Cole, the Beach Boys, Elvis and more.

Destroys 'Good Guy With A Gun' Myth

Jordan Klepper

Jordan Klepper of Comedy Central's "The Opposition" isn't afraid to shoot down iffy gun legislation.

On Monday's show, the satire-armed host took aim at a GOP bill that would allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons across state lines with a permit. The proposal, backed by the National Rifle Association, has a friendly name, Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. But basically, Klepper said, it would enable some people with violent records like domestic abusers to carry their concealed weapons in states with stricter gun laws as long as it's legal for them to do so in the state from where they came.

Noting that "a domestic abuser is not a good guy with a gun," Klepper quipped of the legislation:

"It lowers the bar across the country so that every state has to abide by the loosest conceal carry laws. Americans love lowering the bar. It's so much easier getting over it that way."

Netflix Drops Danny Masterson

'The Ranch'

Actor Danny Masterson has been written out of the Netflix comedy series "The Ranch", the streaming company said on Tuesday.

Netflix did not give a reason for Masterson's exit but Los Angeles police said in March that the actor, best known from "That 70s Show," was being investigated for alleged sexual assault of three women in the early 2000s.

"As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of 'The Ranch,'" Netflix said in an emailed statement. "Yesterday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him."

Masterson lost his job as several other U.S. entertainment or media personalities have recently been fired over sexual misconduct allegations.

Nine Hours

'Record-Breaking' Rainbow

The world may have a new record for the longest-lasting rainbow after two professors saw the phenomenon occur for nearly nine hours in Taiwan.

Chou Kun-hsuan and Lui Ching-huan, professors at the Chinese Culture University in Taipei, documented the rainbow last week.

The professors are in the university's department of atmospheric sciences and enlisted the help of students and the campus community in their task, the BBC reported.

According to the data gathered by those at the university, the rainbow lasted for eight hours and 58 minutes, from 06:57 am to 15:55pm.

The record for the longest-lasting rainbow was set in Yorkshire after the phenomenon appeared for six hours on 14 March 1994.

Monument Order Disrespects Native People


President-for-now Donald Trump's (R-Pendejo) rare move to shrink two large national monuments in Utah triggered another round of outrage among Native American leaders who vowed to unite and take the fight to court to preserve protections for lands they consider sacred.

Environmental and conservation groups and a coalition of tribes joined the battle Monday and began filing lawsuits that ensure that Trump's announcement is far from the final chapter of the yearslong public lands battle. The court cases are likely to drag on for years, maybe even into a new presidency.

Trump decided to reduce Bears Ears - created last December by President Barack Obama - by about 85 percent and Grand Staircase-Escalante - designated in 1996 by President Bill Clinton - by nearly half. The moves earned him cheers from Republican leaders in Utah who lobbied him to undo protections they considered overly broad.

Conservation groups called it the largest elimination of protected land in American history.

The move comes a week after tribal leaders decried Trump for using the name of a historical Native American figure as a slur.

Thinks Trump Is 'Reprehensible' and 'Totally Vile'


President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Oink) has been questioning the validity of his infamous Access Hollywood tape, but his vice president's wife reportedly has her own opinion of the man caught boasting of sexually harassing women: "reprehensible-just totally vile."

"Karen (Pence) in particular was 'disgusted'" by the tape, a former campaign aide told The Atlantic. "She finds him reprehensible-just totally vile," the aide said.

The leaded tape, revealed just weeks before the 2016 election, caused a brief schism between Trump and his running mate as Pence weighed how to respond.

He was "beside himself," the Associated Press reported. Citing an anonymous former campaign aide, The New Yorker reported Pence and his wife, Karen, themselves devoted Christians, distanced themselves from Trump after the tape was revealed. They "refused to take Trump's calls and sent him a letter saying that he and Karen, as Christians, were deeply offended by his actions and needed to make an 'assessment' about whether to remain with the campaign," The New Yorker added. Spokespeople for Pence repeatedly denied the account.

In the end, of course, Pence did not abandon Trump in the wake of the "grab them by the pussy" tape. One week after The Washington Post revealed it, Pence appeared on CBS's This Morning to defend Trump.



Typical McDonald's Dinner Order


It's no secret that President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Crooked) loves fast food. But his typical McDonald's order is still downright jaw-dropping.

Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, the former campaign manager and former deputy campaign manager for Trump, respectively, wrote about the president's fast food orders and guilty pleasure foods in their new book, Let Trump Be Trump. The Washington Post obtained an advanced copy of the book and released some of the juiciest food details.

According to the two, a typical dinner order for Trump consisted of "two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted" shake. Keep in mind the daily recommended calories for a sedentary, 71-year-old man like Trump is around 2,000 calories.

Trump's dinner alone comes out to a minimum of 2,672 calories, and that's only if he orders a small shake.

In addition to McDonald's, the book delved into how Trump's germophobia affected his snacking habits. Staffers reportedly stocked Trump's plane with lots of Oreo packages, because he "would not eat from a previously opened package."

Arctic Sea Ice Melt To Exacerbate Droughts


Melting Arctic sea ice could render sun-soaked California vulnerable to a recurrence of the severe drought suffered in recent years as it is likely to cause high pressure systems that push away rain-bearing storms, a study released on Tuesday said.

As temperatures rise, the Arctic Ocean is expected to become ice-free within two or three decades, resulting in more of the sun's heat being stored in the Arctic Ocean, leading to atmospheric circulation changes and cloud formations in the tropical Pacific that move north.

That will lead to the building of high pressure system known as an atmospheric ridge in the northern Pacific off California's coast, steering storms north into Alaska and Canada, the study said.

"This has the potential to make a drought very similar to the one we had in 2012 to 2016," said Ivana Cvijanovic, an atmospheric scientist at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Cvijanovic led the study with contributions from colleagues at the lab and at University of California, Berkeley.

In Memory

Christine Keeler

Christine Keeler, the model who became embroiled in one of the biggest political scandals in decades after having an affair with Conservative MP John Profumo, has died at the age of 75.

Keeler was romantically involved with a Soviet military officer at the same time as her 1960s liaison with Profumo, who was at the time the Secretary of State for War.

The scandal became known as the Profumo affair and forced the MP to resign from the Government and from Parliament.

After her involvement in the affair that rocked British politics and played a role in the fall of Harold Macmillan's Government, Keeler married twice and had two sons: James from her first marriage and Seymour from her second.

Aged 19 at the time of the scandal, Keeler was working as a model and cabaret dancer when she met Profumo at a pool party at Lord Astor's country estate of Cliveden. They were introduced by socialite and osteopath Stephen Ward.

At the time, Keeler was also in a relationship with Yevgeny Ivanov, an official at the Soviet embassy in London, which prompted fears at the height of the Cold War that national security secrets could have been compromised. Both the MP and the model denied that suggestion.

Profumo initially told Parliament there had been "no impropriety" in his relationship with Keeler but was later forced to admit to the affair and resign.
