The Edge Of Helter Skelter:
20 Beatles Mashups From TjT

By DJ Useo

Some bands are so enduring that they compel home producers to rework their music through sheer joy of content. The Beatles are that kind of band. There's actually an entire forum of bootleggers regularly manufacturing new "Fab Four" mixes. The King of Beatles Bootlegs is clearly a skilled fellow called "TjT". He's proved his mashup mettle consistently through the years through the release of many singles, albums, & projects. Through almost innumerable releases like his "Patamixical Science" series to his 16 cd set "Magical Mystery Mixes" TjT has displayed vast ability, & passion. Read more about him here

TjT has been very busy with lots of important offline activity, but has still worked up his penultimate masterpiece in the form of "The Edge Of Helter Skelter", his new collection of 20 Beatles mashups. In only the two days since it's posting, I've found it to be a bootleg masterpiece, full of genius mixing, & superb production. Some of the album is Beatles on Beatles mixes that will blow your mind through amazing juxtaposition. Some of the album is Beatles versus other classic artists. Listen for elements of The Cure, The Beach Boys, Cream, The Clash, & plenty more. I've heard the collection well enough now to categorically state it RULES!

I own every single Beatles cd, & this set fits in so wonderfully with the rest. There's pairings of early Beatles vs late era Beatles, sometimes multiple tracks in the same mix. I was quite impressed with the entire release, but some really grabbed me personally because I love the pairings. "A Day In The Life" vs Yes' "Wurm" leaves me delighted. "Memory Of The Free Word" is David Bowie vs The Beatles, & embodies all the best of the "Hippy" sixties combined in one song. Right before the last track, you'll find "Crippled Slumbers", a damn incredible tune that unites the "Abbey Road" medley & John Lennon's solo track "Crippled Inside". Excellence, & not a brag in any way.

I could easily go on praising this cut & loop masterpiece, but instead, I offer you the link for "The Edge Of Helter Skelter" ( ) .

Grab the zip file now, in case it goes away, as things on the net tend to. You'll surely enjoy the tunes, & might even desire to share the compilation with your friends. You'll assuredly come away from the album wanting more, so make plans to check out the innumerable TjT posts here

Mix Of The Week

EmbassyDjs' "Chris Holmes Beatles/Paul McCartney/Wings DJ set 2013" long mix has pleased over 83,000 people, & I'm sure you'll feel the same.It's all great bootleg Beatles related mixes from EmbassyDjs played out over almost two hours. Stream, or d/l here

Mashup Tip

Make a Beatles mashup for the Beatles Remixers Group forum. You may not get many comments, but a lot of people will hear your track.

Latest Useo Thing

I love a track from The Red Hot Chilli Pipers. It's a cover of Gary Numan's "Cars" performed with bagpipes. I carefully added Beatles vocals to it, & you can hear the resulting mix, " Lucy In The Sky With Cars" ( Beatles vs Red Hot Chilli Pipers ) here

Trivia Question of the Day

What year was 'The Summer Of Love'?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

This performer was born Ellen Naomi Cohen. By what name is she better known?

      "Mama" Cass Elliot                                                      Source

Cass Elliot (born Ellen Naomi Cohen; September 19, 1941 - July 29, 1974), also known as Mama Cass, was an American singer and member of The Mamas & the Papas. After the group broke up, she released five solo albums. In 1998, Elliot, John Phillips, Denny Doherty, and Michelle Phillips were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for their work as The Mamas & the Papas.        Source

Lois Eating Mayonnaise From The Jar With A Spoon In Oregon was first, and correct, with:
   The answer is Martha no, Mama Cass Elliot, she of the beautiful voice and unrestrained appetite. Don't know if she blew a platoon. (Thanks for the LOL Dale).

Charlie wrote:
   I knew this wasn't a Martha, I knew it was (Mama) Cass Elliot.

  We can connect to the previous theme though - "Dancing in the Street" by The Mamas and the Papas.
  Yes, Le Tour is over. I missed riding Sunday myself because though the weather was fine here in the morning, while the Tour was going on, we had thunderstorms develop soon afterward. It's best to avoid riding in thunderstorms, of course, but i still get caught sometimes (twice this year so far, including last Saturday).
  Of course the pros still have plenty left of the season. Just to mention a few, which you probably know, soon, we have the Tour of Utah, then the USA Pro Challenge, then La Vuelta a España. La Vuelta should be pretty ferocious.

Alan J said:
   Cass Elliot

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   Cass Elliot

Adam answered:
   Cass Elliot- Mama Cass.

George replied:
   If my memory serves me well, Marty, Ellen Naomi Cohen is better known as Cass Elliot, alias "Mama" Cass of the Mamas and the Papas.

Marian said:
   Martha, my dear..... wait, no, the correct answer is Mama Cass Elliott

Dale of Diamondy Hot and Muggy Springs, Norcali, answered:
   40 years ago today Cass Elliot crumped of a heart attack. She did not choke on a ham sandwich! Mama Cass was just another abundant talent lost through the excesses of the times. Saw the Mamas and Papas twice. Harmonies and tunes. Nice…Aren't I mellow today? Shit…I remember seeing Charles Pierce at Finocchio's in SF in the late 60's a few times with my Grandparents! My Grandfather thought Charles was the funniest person on the planet! He was in that realm of hilarity….Ha Ha Fuckin' Ha!

DJ Useo responded:
   I had no idea what the answer was, but I decided to search it out, & now I know it's Mama Cass. I have the double best of cd of the Mamas & The Papas.

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.

ESPN Suspends Apologist

Stephen A. Smith

ESPN has suspended outspoken sportscaster Stephen A. Smith for a week because of his comments about domestic abuse suggesting women should make sure that they don't do anything to provoke an attack.

Stephen A. SmithSmith's commentary occurred during a discussion on ESPN2's ''First Take'' last Friday about the NFL's two-game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice following charges he assaulted his now-wife. The remarks attracted widespread attention, including a stinging rebuke online from a fellow ESPN personality.

During the Rice discussion, Smith alluded to women in abuse cases when he said, ''Let's make sure we don't do anything to provoke wrong action ... we got to also make sure that you can do your part to do whatever you can do to make, to try to make sure it doesn't happen again.''

Smith, during his apology, said it wasn't his intention to say that women could be responsible for their own abuse. ''It was not what I was trying to say,'' he said. ''Yet the failure to clearly articulate something different lies squarely on my shoulder.''

Smith didn't explain the point that he was trying to make.

Deceptive Practices


OkCupid's disclosure that the popular dating website intentionally misled couples about their suitability could open it up to a U.S. Federal Trade Commission inquiry, according to lawyers and experts in consumer-protection law.

On Monday, President Christian Rudder disclosed in a blog post that OKCupid had conducted experiments on its users, including a test to see whether its assessment of their matchability led to successful dating.

"To test this, we took pairs of bad matches...and told them they were exceptionally good for each other," Rudder wrote. "When we tell people they are a good match, they act as if they are. Even when they should be wrong for each other."

OkCupid's actions, at least four legal experts said, appear to be in violation of a provision in the FTC act that prohibits "unfair and deceptive" practices by a company that result in misleading or harming consumers.

Wild Horse Round-Up


Federal land managers began rounding up wild horses on public land in central Utah on Monday as part of efforts to cut herd numbers and placate ranchers who say the animals destroy range land vital for cattle grazing.

Working with a pair of helicopters, a crew of U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) staff and contractors captured 45 horses in the Blawn Wash area near Minersville, about 220 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, agency spokeswoman Lisa Reid said.

Over the next eight days they hope to gather a total of 140 Mustangs in Blawn Wash, one of four designated management areas in the region. Under the BLM's own rules, no horses should be in Blawn Wash and the region as a whole is capped at 170 horses.

Last week, however, agency staff counted 775 horses during a flyover, Reid said.

The gathered horses are offered to the public for adoption and cannot be euthanized.

More Mysterious Craters


Two more craters of unknown origin have been spotted in Russia's Siberia region, weeks after a similar-looking hole was found in the isolated northernmost area, a local paper reported.

The Siberian Times, an English-language newspaper, published pictures of two new giant holes discovered by reindeer herders, one located in the Yamal and the other in the Taymyr peninsula, both above the Arctic circle.

Russian state TV reported earlier this month that a giant hole had appeared in the gas-rich Yamal peninsula where temperatures plummet below -50 degrees Celsius (-58 degrees Fahrenheit) and the sun barely rises in winter.

A Russian scientific expedition arrived at the site to inspect the first crater, nicknamed the "Yamal black hole", earlier this month, according to a recent report by state-run website.

Awarded $1.8 Million

Jesse Ventura

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura was awarded more than $1.8 million in damages on Tuesday after a federal jury found he had been defamed in a book by an ex-Navy SEAL who claimed the two were in a bar fight.

In an 8-2 decision, the jury awarded Ventura $1.35 million for unjust enrichment and $500,000 for defamation over the book, written by Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL who was killed in 2013 at a Texas shooting range by a troubled Iraq war veteran he was trying to mentor.

Kyle wrote in his best-selling book, "American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History," that he got into a fight with a man who made disparaging remarks about the Navy SEALS.

Kyle later identified the man as Ventura. The jury deliberated for six days before announcing its verdict in a U.S. district court in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Serial Philanderer Spews

Geraldo Rivera

On Monday, Geraldo Rivera, no stranger to controversy, stirred things up again while appearing on the Fox News show "Outnumbered."

In a segment on what 20-somethings really want in a marriage, the talk turned to the concept of "beta marriages," in which the union can be formalized or dissolved after a two-year trial period with no paperwork or hassle, allowing partners to see if they want to continue beyond a short-term commitment.

Rivera, after noting that his current marriage is almost 11 years strong, acknowledged that he has been divorced four times, essentially having had his share of beta marriages himself.

Mentioning his three daughters, he went on to explain that he is against the idea of beta marriages, arguing that while men bring money to a marriage, women bring their youth, and that a woman's youth is precious.

Acidic Seawater


The release of carbon dioxide into the air from power plant smokestacks to the tailpipe on your car could pose a risk to red king crab and other lucrative fisheries in Alaska, a new report says.

Ocean water becomes more acidic when it absorbs carbon dioxide released by human sources, such as the burning of fossil fuels. Increased ocean acidification could harm important Alaska commercial and subsistence fisheries and communities that rely heavily on them, according to the new research aimed at spurring discussion on how to address the changes.

The research, led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, was to be published Tuesday in the online journal Progress in Oceanography.

According to the NOAA, Alaska's high-latitude coastal waters are more vulnerable to acidification because cold water can absorb more carbon dioxide. Circulation patterns also bring more acidic deep-ocean water to the surface, the agency said.

Conservationists Warn


They've been described as walking artichokes and the most trafficked mammals in the world. Now, conservationists warn that pangolins, or scaly anteaters, could be eaten out of existence if illegal hunting and poaching continue.

In the latest update of the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species, all eight pangolin species were listed as "critically endangered," "endangered" or "vulnerable." Today (July 29), a group of scientists and conservationists tasked with studying pangolins for the IUCN issued an action plan outlining steps that should be taken to save the armored, insect-eating creatures.

"In the 21st century, we really should not be eating species to extinction - there is simply no excuse for allowing this illegal trade to continue," Jonathan Baillie, co-chair of the pangolin specialist group for the IUCN's Species Survival Commission and conservation programs director at the Zoological Society of London, said in a statement.

Pangolins, native to Asia and Africa, are the world's only mammals with true scales made of keratin. Despite international trade bans, pangolin meat and scales still fetch high prices on the black market. Demand is especially high in China and Vietnam, where pangolin parts are used in medicine and served as a culinary delicacy.

Though the scope of the black market is difficult to quantify, conservationists estimate that more than 1 million pangolins have been taken from the wild in just the last decade. The four species in Asia are the most severely threatened. The Chinese pangolin and the Sunda pangolin are now considered critically endangered, while the Indian pangolin and Philippine pangolin are now listed as endangered. But as the populations of Asian pangolin species are becoming more scarce, traders are increasingly looking to Africa to meet the demand for pangolin.

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?
