Episode 452! Wow! I am constantly amazed that the episodes keep coming out to 1 hour.  I keep thinking….it’s going to be late…it’s going to be late and as luck would have it, they come out on time.

My initial offering deals with the SF horror genre taking a major hit this week. two new stories, plus additional material from the blog.

After the opening monologue  I give us a taste of Blue Oyster.

Then the first story for the program, In Plain Sight episode #35 and the weirdness is starting to build for our favorite psychic detective Jack Garrett.

Next is a trip through the newest listings on the Beam Me Up blog – Like a rather “twisted” end to a Long March engine, or the research that may shore up the argument that Black Holes may indeed “evaporate”.

finally it is the second story for the afternoon.  Child Soldier by J. Alden.

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!

Episode 431

I open with are review of the science fiction movie Snow Piercer I also note that Chris Hadfield’s version of David Bowie’s Space

Oddity is back on YouTube thanks to the man himself!

First story of the weekend is Episode 30 of the Dark Inspectre Jason Kahn.

From the BMU log:

You can win a ride into space for free!  Most stars may not be in a home galaxy…  The ISS almost had a close encounter with some space trash.  How about an astronomy first?  The first ever pictures of a proto, planetary system.  And the universe may have started out of nothing?

Final Story  Wizard’s Bane ch5 pt1 by CrystalWizard

That’s it!  Enjoy

hoooooooooo! Yep it’s that time of the week again. This week – episode 426. This week in my opening comments I discuss the time paradox in A Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. Plus the stunning success of the Indian Mars mission.

My first story of the afternoon is by Jason Kahn and his Darke Inspectre series. Because I dropped the ball in September, and for continuity, I rerun episode 28 and continue straight on to episode 29.

Our next stop is the Beam Me Up blog, The first thing this week, what do you get the nero-scientist that has everything? How about a hard to believe demo of the state of CGI in the industry. SNC is calling foul with NASA’s choice of Space X and Boeing when one of the selected companies was higher in its bid than SNC!

Finally Crystal Wizard’s Wizard’s Bane Book 1 ch4,pt1

This week on Beam Me Up – episode 425 – after my opening comments, I play the first of two music selections. This week, Monochrome Kiss by SID. Interesting selection from the world of Anime.

Next up is an article that you could say I used as a model for this week’s program.  The article in question is the top six places of the Darwin award followed straight away by a fast piece of music from BECCA called appropriately enough “I’m Alive!” the closing theme to the anime series “Black Butler”.

On the blog front, Kallamus joins us for his review of the Marvel series Agents of Shield.  His next review Brick Mansion doesn’t miss a step and

Running out of time, I finish this weeks program with the final chapters to Isaac Asimov’s “The Final Question”

And that is Beam Me Up episode 425  I hope you enjoy the program

In my opening comments I talk about “Future Diary” an excellent anime series all so I can play the opening theme for same!

Next a review of “RIO pt2” in short, calling it a turd is doing it a favor.

I always like the week where I get to run another episode of IPS.

This week Episode 28 of In Plain Sight written and narrated by Jason Kahn, 28th months from the talented Mr. Kahn 2 and 1/3 years and he is still going strong.  I honestly hope he decides to compile these great stories into an ebook, that would be so great!

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has again spotted something on Titan of  scientific interest.  Plus some trivia on Titan.

It is no surprise that I really like the concept of 3d printers.  Now that they are becoming affordable and easy to operate, the are becoming much more prevalent, even NASA is taking up the reigns for the devices.

And catch up on the darkest material yet…it’s wild!

And the final story for the afternoon is “Even a Non-Corporeal Can Get  Lonely by David Scholes

Welcome to episode 411 of Beam Me Up. After my opening comments,  I
once again play the opening music to the rather calm anime series called Kashima’s Kiss.

I follow this straight up with this month’s Dark Inspectre series, by Jason Kahn.  This month – episode 26. Jack has been flat on his back for two episodes so far. He is still recovering from the ambush. The down time does have it’s good side so far as it gives him time to put names to faces, so to speak.

From the blog this week:

NASA is still hoping for favorable weather conditions to launch a huge helium balloon into the stratosphere to test the supersonic parachutes it would like to use on some of the heavy Mars missions Hubble data shows that dwarf galaxies were very important in the early universe.

I close with a great story from Dean Ing called Linger.  I asked Dean several years ago if I could read this one but as you know this went to hell in a hand basket there for a while with my health.  I already had it recorded so I mixed some tracks and I like the outcome.  I hope you do as well.

Thanks for listening.

Hey there! Welcome to Beam Me Up episode 406.  This week my opening comment reflect those of Kallimus who is constantly amazed at the capacity of the human animal for stupidity. I use his comments, posted on the Beam Me Up blog, as my opening comments.

I also discover that Dark Inspectre stories have been lacking.  So I take the latest installment that played back in December and play that in hopes that it jogs people’s memory and I will start with news installments as soon as I can get them from Mr. Kahn.

Then I move back to the blog for a few of the latest articles that have peaked my interest.

First is a review of a short film on YouTube called Payload…

Then a new product that the inventor says will be the end of food! And you will not believe what they call it!!!

ABC renews Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.!  Plus another surprise!

Finally Mr. Scholes changes gears slightly and brings us “Human Hunter” which is a departure from his Trathh series.

There is enough to entertain. I hope you find it as such.  Enjoy

I watched the second installation of the Thor franchise and thought it went very vell.  So I review the newest episode.

Finally it is Part 2 of Cory Doctorow’s, by his things you will know him.

Thats it for this week.  Enjoy!
