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.

My opening comments to Beam Me Up episode 432 drift off into a review
of The Xmen Days of Future Past The first story for the afternoon is a short strange tale by Deborah Walker called Sibyl. A deceptively different “time travel” tale.
From the blog: Meebles sends in an article about a “working” hoverboard. ESA’s spacecraft comet landing of Rosetta’s landing craft.
Next, could AIs becoming a problem for humanity.
Jupiter’s great red spot is something much more complicated than once figured.

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

Yep, it is episode 430 of Beam Me Up on a cold and decidedly winterish weekend in Maine.
After my opening comments I play one of the opening pieces of music for the animated series RWBY called This will be the Day by Jeff Williams featuring Casey Lee Williams.
I follow this music with part two of the series Squeak Squeak by Michael Juby.
From the BMU blog I mention the Virgin Galactic space plane failure.
Jarad sends me a couple of links to two extremely well made short films ABE and the other is Blinky. These two are so well made as to be big screen quality. Or how about the TSA agent who confiscated a toy ray-gun belt buckle… John Anealio has a new Halloween themed album out.
The last story for the week is David Scholes Human Hunter – The British facility.
That’s it for the weekend. Enjoy!

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”

The first story for the afternoon is The Last Question chapter 3 by Asimov.
From the BMU blog: First a review of the British SF movie “The Machine”
A look at the next Batmobile, the argument of can a person or country “own” asteroids or other heavenly bodies? Can you brew in space? Did Nicaragua get slammed by a piece off low flying asteroid?
And chapter 3 of book one of CrystalWizard’s Wizard’s Bane is the final story for the afternoon.
Enjoy and thanks for listening!

The first offering is the closing theme to the anime series “Wagnaria”
The first story is Kevin J. Phyland’s “Famine”
From the first story to the Beam Me Up blog – I start with a brief review of “The amazing Spiderman II”. What does space smell like?
Astronomers studying the dust cloud surrounding the Milkyway’s core known as Sagittarius 2 have discovered even more complex smells. New Horizon has set yet another milestone in its quest to do a fly by of Pluto in 2015. A college student does another student a solid by designing and printing a much needed device. That and more, from the blog.
Finally from Isaac Asimov, “The Final Question” part 1

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
