M Is FOR MASHUP - July 1st, 2015

Great New Mashups For You!

By DJ Useo


Summer has slightly slowed the flood of mashups, but there's still too many to hear them all. ( By any means ) Here's a great batch of new ones you'll quite enjoy -








01 - DJ MXR - Jason Derulo vs Kate Bush
( soundcloud.com/dj-mxr-the-original/jason-derulo-vs-kate-bush )
























02 - DJ Useo - "Burn Detroit" ( Kiss vs Nine Inch Nails )
( hearthis.at/vXMfxz7w/burn-detroit-kiss-vs-nine-inch-nails/ )
























03 - DJ Rudec - "Undecided Bohemian" ( Curtis Fullers Quintet vs Queen vs Rick Hirsch Jazz Ensemble )
( hearthis.at/rudec/curtis-fullers-quintet-vs-queen-vs-rick-hirsch-jazz-ensemble-undecided-bohemian-rudec-mashup/ )
























04 - Lizzart - Memphis Soul vs Katy Perry
( soundcloud.com/lizzart/last-mar-keys-night )
























05 - Chocomang - "Stach Stach Pour Moi" ( Plastic Bertrand vs Bratisla Boys )
( chocomang.org/mashup#188 )
























06 - Mash2Mix - The final King and Queen show (yearsand years +6 sources)
( soundcloud.com/mashupfacts/the-final-king-and-queen-show-mashup )
























07 - Jesus Cadena - Armin Van Buuren vs Eagles
( hearthis.at/nKFzgC48/armin-van-buuren-vs-eagles-hotel-california-trance-vertion-by-jesus-cadena/ )
























08 - Assal - Want Balance (Lady Gaga vs Reciprok)
( soundcloud.com/jacksor/assal-want-balance-lady-gaga-vs-reciprok-2015 )
























09 - YITT - "Life Moves Pretty Fast (I Want You To Know)" ( New Arcades vs Selena Gomez )
( soundcloud.com/yepimthetoaster/life-moves-pretty-fast-i-want-you-to-know-mp3 )
























10 - ToToM - "Inspector Busta (Woo Hah! Gadget All in Check)" ( Shuki Levy vs Busta Rhymes )
( soundcloud.com/totom/inspector-busta )




Hope you found some of them appealing. Lots of variety, innit?














Btw - It seems moneyed labels have decided to stamp out the main mashup host, Soundcloud.com.

Many of the paying bootleggers are having lots of trouble keeping their stuff hosted, despite posting tracks legally under the "Creative Commons Licence".

I reckon the rich record companies don't like people giving you something to listen to for free.

In the modern super crook era, the one who has the most is above the law.

"Law", huh? That word is nearly obsolete.

I'll keep you appraised of the situation. Later, all.

Station Master Tama

I enjoyed the story you shared about Station Master Tama. Just FYI--I Can Has Cheezburger has several pictures of her on their web site. They also have some pictures of her successor--"Fortunately a new station master has been named. Tama had an apprentice who is ready to take over the job. She is also a calico cat, her name is Nitama."

Tama was a pretty kitty, and Nitama is lovely too but neither compare to my Honey (Miss Honey Moon Child)!

In The Chaos Household

Last Night

Weird weather - a very atypical rainstorm with thunder & lightning blew through. Didn't last long. Didn't do much about the humidity, either.

Has me thinking about the usefulness of gills.


So, one of my old high school pals posted a Betty Bowers image on FB, and one of our favorite teachers responded.

The man who taught us the difference between satire and parody and irony.

He was the cool, fresh outta college oh-so-hip teacher. He'd gone to Woodstock.

Even drove a Barracuda.

These days, however, he's a thumper. Damn near the Buddy Rich of thumping, with cymbals of sanctimony.

Threw the self-righteous religious wet blanket on the conversation by stating that as a child of god, he saw no humor at all in the image.

And a thinly veiled threat that anyone who saw humor in it must be headed to hell.

Well, now he's talking my crowd.

But I'd like to explain to him that Betty Bowers is a satire site, that specializes in religious parody, and it's ironic that he doesn't get it.

Bolivian Coca

Pope Frankie

The Vatican isn't ruling out that Pope Francis might chew coca leaves - or at least sip tea made from them - to fend off altitude sickness when he arrives in Bolivia next week.

Francis embarks on a South American tour Sunday that will take him to Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay. He is due to land Wednesday at La Paz airport, 4,000 meters above sea level.

Bolivian Culture Minister Marko Machicao told local media that Francis had asked to chew coca leaves upon arrival. Coca is legal in Bolivia and is considered a mild stimulant similar to coffee, but is banned by most nations because it is the raw material for cocaine.

Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi told reporters Tuesday that he didn't know what the pope would do and had no confirmation that he might chew the coca leaf. He noted, though, that Francis is a huge fan of mate, the typical tea that Argentines sip throughout the day, and that coca leaves can be brewed into a tea.

"The pope will do what he thinks is the right thing to do," Lombardi said. "I gather there are popular uses to respond to altitude sickness, and some drink a tea or chew the leaves. What will the pope do? We'll have to see."

Eliminates Mother-To-Child HIV

Cuba

Cuba on Tuesday became the first country in the world to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV and syphilis, the World Health Organization said.

"Eliminating transmission of a virus is one of the greatest public health achievements possible," said WHO Director-General Margaret Chan.

"This is a major victory in our long fight against HIV and sexually transmitted infections, and an important step towards having an AIDS-free generation."

Universal health coverage, improved access to tests and increased attention to maternal care were credited with the success, defined by health authorities as fewer than 50 cases of mother-to-child transmission of syphilis or HIV per 100,000 live births.

County Ban On GMO Crops Ruled Invalid

Maui

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that a Maui County ban on the cultivation of genetically engineered crops is pre-empted by federal and state law and invalid.

The county's ordinance creating the prohibition exceeded the county's authority, U.S. District Court Chief Judge Susan Oki Mollway said in her order.

The county, which is a major center for research on genetically engineered crops, will abide by the decision, spokesman Rod Antone said. Monsanto Co. and Dow Chemical Co. unit Agrigenetics Inc. both have research farms in the county.

Maui voters passed the ordinance when they approved a ballot initiative last November. The measure imposes a moratorium on the growing of genetically engineered crops until scientific studies are conducted on their safety and benefits. The ordinance would only allow the moratorium to be lifted after a vote by the Maui County Council.

Monsanto has two farms in Maui County, on Maui and Molokai islands. Agrigenetics, which does business as Mycogen Seeds, has a farm on Molokai.

Starting Races Earlier To Avoid Deer

Presque Isle Downs

Deer, not deuces, are wild at Presque Isle Downs and Casino, and the racetrack is making changes to get its horses back in the starting gate.

Officials plan to resume racing on Wednesday after canceling some races Sunday and all the races Monday and Tuesday because deer were jumping onto the track and creating a dangerous situation.

To help resolve the problem, the track planned to remove nearby bushes and trees in an attempt to keep the animals at bay. Also, officials planned to raise the fence around the track, and to start the program a few hours earlier, at 3:05 p.m. The time change is to avoid racing at dusk when deer become more active.

A deer ran in front of horses during Sunday's fourth race. Four later races were canceled that day. The track holds races Sunday through Thursday.

Sunday wasn't the first time deer had interrupted a race, and jockeys said they were becoming concerned. Five deer interrupted a race June 22, prompting officials to cancel the final five races that day.

Simpatico With Racist Con Man

Rand Paul

Republican presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul met with southern Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy on Monday during a question-and-answer session in the town of Mesquite with about 50 supporters and activists interested in land rights.

The meeting northeast of Las Vegas was part of a statewide tour with stops from Las Vegas to rural Elko.

Paul's meeting with Bundy recalled one of the more dramatic conflicts over land rights in recent years.

Hundreds of armed supporters joined Bundy in April 2013 to stop a roundup of his cattle near Bunkerville about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. The Bureau of Land Management says he owes more than $1 million in grazing fees over more than 20 years. Bundy argues the federal government has no authority there.

Bundy told the AP: "In general, I think we're in tune with each other." He added: "I don't think we need to ask Washington, D.C. for this land. It's our land."

No Bail

Deen Castronovo

Journey drummer Deen Castronovo will remain in an Oregon jail on rape and other felony charges after prosecutors said he repeatedly violated a court order by calling and texting the victim with messages that included suicide threats and apologies.

Prosecutors told a Marion County judge Tuesday that the 50-year-old musician contacted the woman after his arrest in Salem on June 14, when he was accused of misdemeanour assault and menacing. He was released on bail in that case and ordered to stay away from the victim.

He now faces felony charges after a grand jury returned the indictment Monday.

Marion County Judge Audrey Broyles declined to set bail after prosecutors said Castronovo texted the woman 122 times and called her 35 times and presents a threat to the woman if he's released.

Marion County Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Gardiner said Castronovo acknowledged his abuse in the texts and even told the woman to get a restraining order. Castronovo, "quite frankly, is unstable," Gardiner said.

Because Freedom

NSA

A U.S. court has ruled that the eavesdropping National Security Agency can temporarily resume its bulk collection of Americans' telephone records, according to documents made public on Tuesday.

The controversial program, exposed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, was rocked in May by an appeals court ruling that the USA Patriot Act had never authorized the NSA to collect Americans' phone records in bulk.

A new law, called the Freedom Act, which substantially reformed and narrowed the bulk phone data program, was signed by U.S. President Barack Obama a day after the existing program lapsed on June 1.

The Freedom Act also allowed the existing surveillance program to continue for a six-month transition period, but it remained in legal limbo pending Monday's ruling by a judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

In his ruling, first reported by the New York Times, Mosman rejected the May ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan that the Patriot Act had never authorized the NSA to collect Americans' phone records in bulk.

Morongo Band of Mission Indians

Colt Holding Co

A Native American tribe in California is looking to make a bid for Colt Holding Co, the 179-year-old gun manufacturer, according to a tribal attorney.

"Colt is an iconic business and we're sort of intensely interested in helping a business like that," Drew Ryce, attorney for the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, told Reuters on Tuesday. "Colt is the Gun that Won the West. We are the West."

The firearms manufacturer filed for bankruptcy on June 14 and is considering putting itself up for sale.

Ryce said the Banning, California-based tribe was looking to diversify its economy and an East Coast manufacturer would balance the tribe's focus on retail, gambling and hospitality in Southern California.

The manufacturer is controlled by Sciens Capital Management, a private equity firm that had proposed buying Colt in a sale that would not include any cash but would assume Colt's obligations, other than $250 million of bonds.
