I listen to mashups because I love them, They come in so many styles that even if they use an artist I am not into, the pairing often elevates the track beyond the source material. The home producers on this new Institute Of Bootleggers collection all excel at turning out highest quality bootlegs at a regular clip. Following their releases is so gratifying that I personally devote about half my listening time to mashups, completely without regret.
This new volume has 16 mashups by 16 mashers, all of whom have gained a worldwide audience. Contained therein are tracks from DJ Schmolli, SKiBiLiBoP, Shahar Varshal, Les Mashups de Vianney, & 12 others. The tunes contain pairings with Michael Jackson vs Pink Floyd, Katy Perry vs Britney Spears vs The Pussycat Dolls, Coldplay vs Claude VonStroke vs New Life Generation vs Elton John vs Mariah Carey vs Hithouse, & 13 more.
DJ Surda's contribution ""D.A.N.C.E. Monkey (Radio Edit)" ( Tones and I vs Justice ) is available to preview as a video. It's a great example of what's found on this assortment.

Assembling these IOB comps is the pinnacle of satisfaction. Apparently the listeners find the same satisfaction. All the mashup comps I'm involved with seem to draw in high numbers audience-wise, but the IOB comps are just about the only ones where I get comments. If you use the net, I'm sure you've noticed most people type comments like their fingers are broken. Lol.

albums generally appear 4 times a year, although it would be easy to do them bi-weekly. Again, I offer highest praise to the contributors. You're all internationally-known geniuses who do what non-mixers are unable to discern. If you didn't get a track on this one, you'll probably be on the next one. We're planning a 2 disc affair that'll be distinctly memorable.

… stop and frisk? Can we just always note that - though a mistake! - its goal was NOT to oppress or humiliate young black men, but, rather, to save their lives. … to me it seems relevant. Motivation matters.
The peanut, also known as the groundnut, goober (US), or monkey nut (UK), and taxonomically classified as Arachis hypogaea, is a legume crop grown mainly for its edible seeds. It is widely grown in the tropics and subtropics, being important to both small and large commercial producers. It is classified as both a grain legume and, due to its high oil content, an oil crop. World annual production of shelled peanuts was 44 million tonnes in 2016, led by China with 38% of the world total. Atypically among legume crop plants, peanut pods develop underground (geocarpy) rather than above ground. With this characteristic in mind, the botanist Carl Linnaeus named the species hypogaea, which means "under the earth".
In 2017, world production of peanuts (reported as groundnuts in shells) was 47 million tonnes, led by China with 36% of the global total, followed by India (20%). Other significant producers were the United States, Nigeria, Myanmar, and Sudan. Major exporters in 2017 were India with 601,849 tonnes, which accounts for 32% of world total exports (1.9 million tonnes), and the United States with 16% of total exports.

• Walter Adler, his girlfriend (Maria Parsheva), and two friends were on a subway car when someone wished them "Merry Christmas." A Jew, he responded, "Happy Hanukkah." This was enough for some anti-Semites to start a fight. One rolled up his sleeve to show a tattoo of Christ. Mr. Adler says that the man said, "Happy Hanukkah, that's when the Jews killed Jesus." Ms. Parsheva said, "They just came at us so fast. The first thing that came into my mind was, 'Yeah, this is going to be violent.'" Approximately 14 people taunted the small group of four, calling them "dirty Jews" and "Jew b*tches." During the fight, Mr. Adler's nose was broken and his lip was busted. One person who came to his aid was a Muslim fromBangladeshnamed Hassan Askari. Mr. Adler said, "A random Muslim guy jumped in and helped a Jewish guy on Hanukkah - that's a miracle." Mr. Adler pulled the emergency cord, and police arrested 10 people. Mr. Askari, a modest hero who ended up with two black eyes, said, "I just did what I had to do. My parents raised me that way." Mr. Adler invited Mr. Askari to celebrate Hanukkah with him; Mr. Askari accepted the invitation. According to a post on the Web site The Muslim Workplace, "Please note that Hassan Askari is not the exception among Muslims worldwide. He is what all Muslims are expected to be, and he behaved in the manner that all Muslims are expected to behave when they see a fellow human being needing help." The following January both Mr. Adler and Ms. Parsheva attended an appreciation dinner given to honor Mr. Askari by the Islamic Circle of North America, which in a written statement said, "Mr. Askari embodies the principles of courage, strength and love for fellow Americans as taught by the Quran and Sunnah."
• In April 2010, 7th-graders Allyson Golden and Miriam Starobin laughed at something funny that their music teacher, Sanford Mauskopf, said at Long Beach (New York) Middle School. Allyson said, "I was chewing gum, which I shouldn't. I was laughing hysterically and suddenly I realized I'm not laughing any more. I can't breathe. Then Miriam goes, 'Ally, are you choking?' I can't speak. So my arms are around my neck. I'm turning purple, and my legs are flailing." Allyson was frightened when she was unable to breathe; she said that "it was the scariest moment of my life. I was thinking 'I'm going to die. What will my parents think?'" Fortunately Miriam knew exactly what to do - a result, she thinks, of remembering a SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon that she had seen on Nickelodeon. Miriam said, "It was like a flash right in my eyes. I saw in my head Squidward with his clarinet lodged in his throat and then SpongeBob does the Heimlich maneuver and the clarinet comes flying out of his mouth. I had no clue what I was doing until it was done." Miriam performed the Heimlich maneuver on Allyson, and the gum popped out of her mouth. Immediately afterward, Allyson gave Miriam "the biggest hug" and said to her, "Miriam, you just saved my life. I owe you big time." Miriam replied, "Oh, no, no, you don't. It's no big deal." Their music teacher, Mr. Mauskopf, did not see Allyson choking because his view was blocked, but he did see the gum flying through the air. He asked the girls, "What's going on?" After learning what Miriam had done, he said to her, "Do you realize what you've just done? You've saved Allyson's life. You're a hero." (By the way, a Nickelodeon spokeswoman later said that actually SpongeBob did not perform the Heimlich maneuver on Squidward; therefore, Miriam may be conflating the cartoon with a demonstration of the Heimlich maneuver that she saw elsewhere. Whatever. Miriam saved Allyson's life, and that is the important thing.)

The White House Correspondents' Dinner is pivoting back to laughs in 2020. A year after featuring Hamilton historian Ron Chernow as its keynote speaker, organizers of the annual event announced Tuesday that Saturday Night Live veteran Kenan Thompson will host this year's dinner, and he'll be getting an assist from previous host Hasan Minhaj.
"Kenan and Hasan are two of the most engaged and engaging entertainers in America. I'm thrilled they'll help us celebrate the role of a free press in our democracy," White House Correspondents' Association president Jonathan Karl said in a statement. "We're looking forward to a lively evening honoring the most important political journalism of the past year."
It's a busy time for Thompson. He recently landed his own NBC sitcom The Kenan Show while still staying on at SNL, where he's performed for 17 years. He will give the main comedic speech at this year's dinner, while Minhaj will also perform as a "featured entertainer."
Three new awards will be presented at the dinner: the Collier Prize for State Government Accountability, the Award for Excellence in Presidential News Coverage by Visual Journalists, and the Katharine Graham Award for Courage and Accountability, named for the legendary Washington Post publisher.
The day that everyone in the vinyl-manufacturing world has been worried about for years finally arrived. Earlier this month, Apollo Masters Corp., one of the two places in the world that produce the lacquer discs needed to assemble master plates for pressing records, burned down. The blaze reportedly took 82 firefighters and three hours to extinguish. No one was harmed, but the fire obliterated the Banning, California, facility responsible for, by most estimates, 70 to 85 percent of the lacquer plates used in vinyl production. There is now just one such factory in the world capable of producing that crucial item, MDC in Japan, leaving the global supply of vinyl in peril.
"We've all been worried about this, we've had meetings about it within the industry," says Cash Carter, chief operating officer at Kindercore Vinyl Pressing in Athens, Georgia. "We've gotten together with all the other pressing plants, lacquer cutters, everybody, and been like, 'What happens if MDC or Apollo goes away? We're all fucked.' We were dreading that day, but not thinking it would actually happen - that before anything disastrous happened, someone would come in and fix what needed to be fixed.… Now, is the sky falling? No. But this is disastrous. I think there are going to be pressing plants that close because of this.… We've been saying we need to fix this for years. Now, we actually need to fix this."
The vinyl-manufacturing community is tightknit, and within hours of the Apollo fire, phones were ringing in pressing and lacquer-cutting plants around the country as people scrambled to reassure clients and reconsider their production schedules for the next few months. There's also been plenty of talk about what must happen next. No specific details have been announced yet, but there are plans in motion to fill the critical void Apollo has left, according to multiple people in the industry.
The Utah state Senate voted unanimously on Tuesday effectively to decriminalize polygamy among consenting adults, reducing penalties for a practice with deep religious roots in the predominantly Mormon state.
The bill, which would treat the offense of plural marriage as a simple infraction on par with a parking ticket, now moves to the Utah House of Representatives, where it is likely to face greater resistance.
The bill swiftly cleared the Republican-controlled Senate on a vote of 29-0 with little discussion.
Under current law, polygamy - typically involving a man who cohabitates with and purports to marry more than one wife - is classified as a third-degree felony, punishable by up to five years in prison.
If the Senate bill becomes law, punishments for plural marriage would be limited to fines of up to $750 and community service.
An Iowa man is accused of forcing a woman to watch the miniseries "Roots," purportedly to better understand her racism.
Robert Lee Noye, 52, faces charges of harassment and false imprisonment, according to Greg Buelow, public safety spokesman for Cedar Rapids.
On Monday, Cedar Rapids police were dispatched to an area in the city for an open-line 911 call "with lots of screaming," police said in a statement.
A 37-year-old woman and her 12-year-old daughter were found crying inside the house, police said.
The woman told police Noye was assaulting her all night and made her sit with him to watch the miniseries "Roots," based on Alex Haley's best-selling book "Roots: The Saga of an American Family," which drew attention to the brutality of slavery. The miniseries aired on ABC in 1977 and won a host of awards, including multiple Emmys and a Peabody Award.
The worst locust outbreak that parts of East Africa have seen in 70 years has reached South Sudan, a country where roughly half the population already faces hunger after years of civil war, officials announced Tuesday.
Around 2,000 locusts were spotted inside the country, Agriculture Minister Onyoti Adigo told reporters. Authorities will try to control the outbreak, he added.
The locusts have been seen in Eastern Equatoria state near the borders with Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda. All have been affected by the outbreak that has been influenced by the changing climate in the region.
The situation in those three countries "remains extremely alarming," the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization said in its latest Locust Watch update Monday. Locusts also have reached Sudan, Eritrea, Tanzania and more recently Uganda.
South Sudan is even less prepared than other countries in the region for a locust outbreak, and its people are arguably more vulnerable. More than 5 million people are severely food insecure, the U.N. humanitarian office says in its latest assessment, and some 860,000 children are malnourished.
Abandoned by her sons, shunned by her neighbours and branded a witch.
Mosammat Rashida's crime? Her husband was killed by a Bengal tiger.
Women like her are ostracised in many rural villages in Bangladesh, where they are viewed as the cause of their partner's misfortune.
"My sons have told me that I am an unlucky witch," she told AFP in her flimsy plank home, in the honey-hunters' village of Gabura at the edge of the Sundarbans -- a 10,000-square-kilometre (3,860-square-mile) mangrove forest that straddles Bangladesh and India.
Her husband died while out collecting honey in the jungles there.
One of the most important archaeological sites for our understanding of Neanderthals is still disgorging its secrets. A new skeleton has been found in Shanidar Cave in Iraqi Kurdistan, and it's helping reveal how the Neanderthals dealt with their dead.
Shanidar Cave is famous for what is known as the Flower Burial. Among 10 fragmentary Neanderthal skeletons unearthed there in the 1950s and 1960s, one was found with clumps of pollen mixed in with the surrounding dirt.
This was interpreted as evidence that the bones - belonging to a man aged between 30 and 45 years - had been buried with flowers; a funerary rite. It contradicted our previous understanding of Neanderthals as animalistic, uncultured and unsophisticated.
But this interpretation was a controversial one, and others put forward alternative explanations, such as the deposit of the pollen by an animal.
Now, archaeologists have found another partial skeleton in Shanidar Cave - not necessarily new remains, but possibly the rest of one of the initial 10, of which only small fragments were found originally.
Vivid frescoes and never-before-seen inscriptions were among the treasures unearthed in a massive years-long restoration of the world-famous archeological site Pompeii that came to a close Tuesday.
The painstaking project saw an army of workers reinforce walls, repair collapsing structures and excavate untouched areas of the sprawling site, Italy's second most visited tourist destination after Rome's Colosseum.
New discoveries were made too, in areas of the ruins not yet explored by modern-day archaeologists at the site -- frequently pillaged for jewels and artefacts over the centuries.
Archeologists discovered in October a vivid fresco depicting an armour-clad gladiator standing victorious as his wounded opponent gushes blood, painted in a tavern believed to have housed the fighters as well as prostitutes.
And in 2018, an inscription was uncovered that proves the city near Naples was destroyed after October 17, 79 AD, and not on August 24 as previously believed.
