I went through my voluminous file of unreleased mashups, selecting the best, & most recent. This resulted in three hours & nineteen minutes of variety style tracks. Next, DJ Petrushka generously contributed her efforts & whittled the set down to a mere 2 hours, & 28 tracks. Perfect for a new 2 disc collection I dubbed with the Chocomang title "PROFuseo".
It was a bit rough watching Petrushka delete many a track I adored. In fact, she removed a few I thought to be the best. She's a proven commodity in track selection, however, so I ended up with the set most likely to draw listeners. I'd actually made a track with Katy Perry vocals, & liked it very much, but it got turned away immediately. I'll surely post that one sometime soon. What I have on the album represents what I do, very well. It goes from style to style with little regard for coherency, but keeping an ear cocked for appeal.
Over the last few weeks KOPIMI RADIO with
Mazanga Von Badman
( twitter.com/mazanga )
has been previewing several of the tracks appearing on "PROFuseo" live on radio to a LARGE audience. It was not only a thrill for me, but I gained lots of confidence regarding the tracks appeal. He even played a few of the ones that didn't make the final cut. That meant to me that the unused cuts were fine for pleasing audiences. Certainly Mazanga liked them enough to air them, & he has excellent taste in bootleg music.

GARY TAUBES: Diet Advice That Ignores Hunger (NY Times)
The men lost an average of a pound of body fat a week over the first 12 weeks, but averaged only a quarter-pound per week over the next 12, despite the continued deprivation. And this was not their only physiological reaction. Their extremities swelled; their hair fell out; wounds healed slowly. They felt continually cold; their metabolism slowed.
Bubble wrap is a pliable transparent plastic material commonly used for packing fragile items. Regularly spaced, protruding air-filled hemispheres (bubbles) provide cushioning for fragile items.
"Bubble wrap" is a generic trademark owned by Sealed Air Corporation. In 1957 two inventors named Alfred Fielding and Marc Chavannes were attempting to create a three-dimensional plastic wallpaper. Although the idea was a failure, they found that what they did make could be used as packing material. Sealed Air Corp. was co-founded by Alfred Fielding in 1960.
Laminated Lois Of Oregon was first, and correct, with:
Not even gonna fact check this one, but boldly go with BUBBLE WRAP, on account of this was the week of the bubble! Also gonna go out on a limb and say, THERE IS ONONE ON THE PLANET WHO DOES NOT POP BUBBLE WRAP WHEN PRESENTED WITH THE OPPORTUNITY! If you claim to have never popped bubble wrap, I say thee LIAR!
And now a shit load of stolen memes. If I was a real man, I'd make my own. But I'm not.
Speaking of bubbles...stop me if you've heard this one:
There were a few ducks in the park blowing bubbles, and a police officer gave them a ticket. They went to court, and the first duck went in to see the judge. The judge asks, "What is your name and why are you here?" The duck said, "My name is Quack and I'm here for blowing bubbles in a park." The judge said, "That's not a crime, you are free to leave. Please send the next duck in." So the next duck comes in and the judge asks, "What is your name and why are you here?" The duck says "My name is Quack-Quack and I'm here for blowing bubbles in the park." The judge replied, "That's not a crime, you're free to go. Please send the next duck in." So the third duck comes in and the judge says, "Let me guess. Your name is Quack-Quack-Quack and you're here for blowing bubbles I'm the park?" The duck says "No, my name is Bubbles.
Sounds like bubble wrap to me.

Three syllables, bubble-wrap.
...you can use that to pack stuff?
I thought it was strictly for entertainment.
Why, that's bubble wrap, of course. Really fun to pop, too.

Around these parts, we call that "Pop 'n Pick", but I reckon y'all call it "bubble wrap"!
I get that stuff in the mail a lot, & my wife loves to pop, & pick at it.
Hey! That dice I threw yesterday knew better than I did the answer! Go figure.

The Senate's top Republican is conceding that his party will have to await the next president before it can cut off federal funds that go to Planned Parenthood, prompting heated rebuffs from conservatives.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Turtlehead., says Republicans lack the votes to halt the payments. He also says that standing in the GOP's way is President Barack Obama, who doesn't leave office until January 2017.
"The way you make a law in this country, the Congress has to pass it, the president has to sign it," McConnell said in an interview with Kentucky TV station WYMT recorded Monday.
"The president's made it very clear he's not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood," McConnell said. "So that's another issue that awaits a new president, hopefully with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood."
Japanese police said Tuesday they had arrested US animal rights activist Ric O'Barry, who trained dolphins for the TV show "Flipper", near the town of Taiji as it kicked off its controversial dolphin hunt.
Bad weather pushed back the first dolphin-killing of the six-month season which opens on September 1 every year, a local fisheries association official said.
O'Barry, 75, was arrested Monday for allegedly failing to carry his passport after being stopped by police.
He will likely have to pay a fine of up to 100,000 yen ($830) and could be detained for up to 48 hours before police decide how to proceed, the spokesman said.
Arquimides Puccio seemed to neighbors like a pious, conservative and obsessively tidy man. Several times a day, he'd sweep the sidewalk in front of his home in an upper-class Buenos Aires neighborhood.
Cleanliness was not his only aim. Puccio was making sure that the screams of kidnap victims imprisoned in the basement of his home could not be heard in the street.
That mundane mask over horror is a key theme of "The Clan," a movie based on a true story that rattled Argentine society in the 1980s.
The well-reviewed film, directed by Argentine Pablo Trapero, has had the most successful launch of any Argentine film. It's headed for film festivals in Venice, Toronto and San Sebastian, followed by release later in Europe and possibly the United States.

Researchers from the University of Oxford have said that fragments from the oldest discovered the Quran, appear to predate the founding of Islam by the prophet Muhammad, which could reshape early Islamic history, The Times of London reports.
"This gives more ground to what have been peripheral views of the Koran's genesis, like that Muhammad and his early followers used a text that was already in existence and shaped it to fit their own political and theological agenda, rather than Muhammad receiving a revelation from heaven," Keith Small, a researcher at the University of Oxford, told the Times
In July, England's Birmingham University unveiled parts of the world's oldest fragments of the Quran, with radiocarbon dating projecting the manuscript to be at least 1,370 years old.
But now, Oxford University researchers used carbon dating to find the pages were from about 1,448 to 1,371 years ago.
If Oxford's dating is correct, the "Birmingham Koran" was created between 568 AD and 645 AD, while Muhammad is believed to have lived between AD570 to AD632.
Former professional wrestling star Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka was charged Tuesday with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in the death of his girlfriend more than three decades ago.
Prosecutors in Lehigh County announced the results of a grand jury investigation into the death of Nancy Argentino, 23, of New York.
Snuka, who had been at a World Wrestling Federation taping at the Allentown Fairgrounds, said he returned to the couple's Whitehall Township hotel room in May 1983 to find her gasping for air and oozing yellow fluid from her mouth and nose, The (Allentown) Morning Call reported. She was pronounced dead at a hospital the next day.
An autopsy determined she died of traumatic brain injuries and had more than two dozen cuts and bruises, and said her injuries were consistent with being hit with a stationary object. At the time, forensic pathologist Isidore Mihalakis wrote that the case should be investigated as a homicide until proven otherwise, the newspaper reported.
Snuka, now 72 and living in Waterford Township, N.J., wrote about Argentino's death in his 2012 autobiography, maintaining his innocence and saying the episode had ruined his life.

Former television judge Joe Brown has been released from jail after serving a five-day jail sentence for contempt of court.
The Commercial Appeal reports Brown was released from the Shelby County Jail Tuesday morning. Brown turned himself in last Thursday.
Brown, a former Memphis judge, was charged with contempt after an outburst in Juvenile Court in March 2014. Magistrate Judge Harold Horne sentenced Brown to five days in jail following a verbal exchange in which Brown called the Juvenile Court a "sorry operation" and challenged Horne's authority.
In a ruling issued Aug. 14, the Tennessee Supreme Court refused to allow Brown to appeal a Court of Appeals decision that had upheld the jail sentence.
Graffiti artist Shepard Fairey was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges of illegally tagging buildings while in Detroit to complete a commissioned project.
Fairey, 45, did not testify at the preliminary examination before 36th District Court Judge Kenneth King, who acknowledged the artist's ability but chastised him all the same.
Fairey is charged with malicious destruction of property. The charges include damage to buildings and a railroad bridge.
The artist was in Detroit in May to complete a 184-foot-tall mural on a downtown building. The work was financed by businessman Dan Gilbert's Bedrock Real Estate Services, which owns the building.
A malicious destruction of property warrant was filed in June for damage to other buildings in Detroit. Fairey was arrested in July at Los Angeles International Airport and released. Later that month, he turned himself in to authorities in Detroit.

FBI agents and a local public corruption task force raided Palm Springs City Hall armed with search warrants on Tuesday, sending home employees and closing the offices for the day, an FBI spokeswoman said.
Laura Eimiller of the FBI's Los Angeles office said she could not disclose the nature of the searches, which were conducted with members of the so-called Inland Empire Public Corruption Task Force, because the case was under seal.
Eimiller said no suspects had been taken into custody in the desert resort community about 110 miles (177 km) east of Los Angeles and that no arrests were planned on Tuesday.
Eimiller said several items covered under the search warrants were also seized from the apartment of Mayor Steve Pougnet.
Pougnet, a 52-year-old Democrat who was first elected mayor of Palm Springs in 2007, announced in that same post that he would not seek reelection in 2015.
A regional governor in Poland voiced serious doubts Monday about the alleged discovery of a Nazi gold train, days after a deputy culture minister said he was "more than 99 percent sure" one had been found.
"There is no more proof for this alleged discovery than for other claims made over the years," Tomasz Smolarz, governor of the southwestern region of Lower Silesia, told reporters.
He also said police and other security services are blocking off the presumed location of the train along a stretch of active railway tracks in a bid to prevent accidents amid an unprecedented influx of treasure hunters.
Rumours of two special Nazi trains that disappeared in the spring of 1945, towards the end of World War II, have been circulating for years, capturing the imagination of countless treasure-hunters.
The lore is fuelled by a massive network of secret underground tunnels near Walbrzych -- including around the massive Ksiaz Castle -- that Nazi Germany built and where legend has it the Third Reich stashed valuables.
