Hello and welcome to Beam Me Up episode 443.
This week is a treat, a new story from David Scholes and a fascinating tale from a new writer to BMU Vaughan Stanger.
But first, after the opening monologue I play the opening music to El: called Friendship.
The next order of business is the first story of the afternoon called “Living on Compressed Time” by David Scholes.
After which I skip over to the Beam Me Up Blog where Kallimus reviews the Dare Devil release, I do the Riddick straight to disk “Dark Fury” a piece on how many stars might be visible vs how many there really are.
Which leads us to the final story for the afternoon from new writer Vaughan Stanger called the English Dead.
Hi and welcome to this week’s episode of Beam Me Up. This is episode 442.
Area of discussion this episode is quantum mechanic’s proofs and the many worlds conjecture as a results of one area of quantum “proofs”
I start this episode with a musical name “The Right Time” which was the closing theme for the anime series Paraclete.
The first story this afternoon is episode 34 of Jason Kahn’s “In Plain Sight”
From there, I head it over to the blog for Beam Me Up. This episode starts with the quantum many worlds idea, which is bizarre enough on it’s own right, but when combined with a mathematical proof system, its then that things get well, weird.
I talk for a moment about the “proof of concept” film “Sundays” which of its own right is a wicked powerful as well as a compilation of all that made the sci fi adventure flick entertaining.
There is now mounting proof that super-nova are indeed the things planets are made of. A lot of them!
I found an app that shows all the cyber – well – attack activity around the world and how much is pointed straight at the USA! Not just government but private institutions as well!
and the final story this afternoon is from David Scholes called Deep Web. A strange and weird story about very very deep web sites.
And That is it for episode 442! Enjoy!
Wow, episode 441! Who knew?
This week I open with a foot tapping piece from Ingrid Michaelson called “Time Machine” and if it doesn’t get a foot tapping, your dead!
The first story for the day is from Michael Juby called Timothy’s Offensive Life. A bit of a change up that you are sure to enjoy.
From the blog Finally a representation of light’s dual states. I do a couple of reviews. First is “Earth to Echo” The Dawn spacecraft has arrived at Ceres.
Second movie review is “Wolf Children” is so much better than Earth to Echo.
Wow, have you seen the new promo pic of Super Girl?
“New Generation” by David Scholes is the final story for the afternoon. Hope you enjoy
his week I start with the less than enviable task of marking the passing of science fiction’s most favored son, Leonard Nimoy, known to a whole generation as Mr. Spock, of Enterprise and Star Trek fame.
To catch my breath, I play the closing music to the anime series “Good Luck Girl”. I don’t know about you, but I needed something kick ass, just to get running again.
Next, I trundle back to the blog for some other articles of interest.
First off, papers have been filed with arguments against there being a Big Bang. NASA’s Dawn spacecraft is just a few days out from Ceres. I found an article where on the surface it seems like such a simple and straight-forward question. Given that there were no obstacles, would you take a trip into space?
Finally our story for the after-noon is a spooky tale of loneliness and wish fulfillment.
Episode 439 up and at ya!
This week after music to get the ball rolling I start with the first story of the afternoon – another story in the Human Hunter series by David Scholes. This week “Clash at the British Facility”.
From the BMU blog wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com, I review The Maze Runner
which pretty much tells you all you need and I talk a bit about a new quantum paper that suggests that the Universe has always been here?!!!
And for the last story of the day is the conclusion of Mimsey were the
Hi, welcome to episode 438 of Beam Me Up. This week, something
slightly different. I had several pieces of stories that by all rights should have played this month. But things being a being as they may, I am catching up on them all.
First off, we have the latest episode in Michael Juby’s Squeek Squeek
series which takes up multi – generational star ships, but with a twist.
Then, from the blog we have an excellent article on quantum spin, this one will spin your brain sideways!
Next up is Jason Kahn’s In Plain View episode 32. I don’t know about
you but I am treasuring each of these episodes.
I review Elfin Lied anime series.
I am forever looking for the short films on YouTube. This episode is no exception. I found simply enough a short called Portal. it is short but very entertaining.
I close with pt3 of Mimsy Were The Borogroves.
This and more. Enjoy!
Welcome to Beam Me Up – episode 437.
Pretty well grounded episode this week.
After the opening monologue, I open with a great anime musical piece, Nobody knows.
Before the first story of the afternoon, I switch gears and read a short article from Kallamis that if you like the Darwins or the more recent “Here is your sign” then you can understand his dismay and frustration even while laughing.
The first story for the afternoon is a funny little tale called “My New Roommate” from a new writer for BMU Russ Bickerstaff.
From the blog, NASA’s Dawn is closing in on it’s second half of its asteroid mission by visiting the most massive body in the asteroid belt.
EU’s Beagle 2 lander which has been missing for better than 10 years may have been found.
I found an awesome youtube video on quantum mechanics. I have the link but it was a bit long for this weekend’s program.
Finally, I play part two of Mimsy Were the Borogoves read by CrystalWizard.
And that’s it. I hope you enjoy the program.
This week in Beam Me Up episode 436 is the beginning of MIMSY WERE THE BOROGOVES by Lewis Padgett and read by (we were so lucky to have her) CrystalWizard.
But before part one of Mimsy were the Borogoves, I take a trip to the podcast.

2015 is the year that Back to the Future and Marty’s Hoverboard. Here are 6 reasons why you would hate one!
And finally CrystalWizard reads Mimsy were the Borogoves
After my opening for this week’s episode (435) I spend a moment memorializing Jason Kahn who passed away 12/16/14 after a long illness.
Next – the first story of the afternoon is Venus or Bust pt2 by Alec Jones
From the Blog wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com
A fake tweet from NASA and a planetary alignment might make you feel lighter?
2015 is an auspicious year for Back to the Future, how much did they get right and how much was plain misses.
Some people have way too much time on their hands and way too many legos!
SpaceX is another step closer to crew transport.
Finally this episode ends with part two of Margaret Karmazin’s Sound Effects.
