RhoDeo 1206 A.C. Clark

Hello, hope you'll had a good weekend, i've noticed of late several music blogs closing apparently the Megaupload seizure have thoroughly shocked and frustrated fellow bloggers. I have to say this was exactly what was hoped for by the media gangsters and their small industry with a huge loudmouth. Apple f.i could buy out the lot with less then half they have amassed in profit these last years...go figure, these RIAA and MPAA people represent just a little industry and would be ignored, if it were not for the fact that many are owned and or run by their gods chosen people who have been buying politicians for decades and as Washington is no doubt the most corrupt city in the world, the rest of the world is considered to follow the orders of people that have no real clout just puppets, that in turn control the by far largest army in the world build with basically worthless dollars. The whole system is so absurd, if Orwell had described it 50 years ago people would have said he'd gone bunkers...

Ok Arthur Clark had more up his sleeve than just 2001 Space Odyssey and the coming weeks I have some BBC dramatizations lined up for you all...N'joy

Arthur C. Clarke was born in England. His prime interest was : Science. He became the Chairman of the renowned British Interplanetary Society, when to confess to an interest in space was to admit to some kind of advanced lunacy. He began to write for British and American magazines, and his first book was one of the masterpieces of imaginative science fiction, Against the Fall of Night, later re-written as The City and the Stars. Another early book of non-fiction was The Exploration of Space which was offered by the Book-of-the-Month Club in 1952.

By this late date it is doubtful if even Arthur knows how many books in how many languages are to his credit. To mention only a few: Childhood's End, Rendevous with Rama, and the recently published Imperial Earth. But it is perhaps as author of the novel 2001: A Space Odyssey that he is best known.


Childhood's End is a 1953 science fiction novel by the British author Arthur C. Clarke. The story follows the peaceful alien invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords, whose arrival ends all war, helps form a world government, and turns the planet into a near-utopia. Many questions are asked about the origins and mission of the aliens, but they avoid answering, preferring to remain in their space ships, governing through indirect rule. Decades later, the Overlords eventually show themselves, and their impact on human culture leads to a Golden Age. However, the last generation of children on Earth begins to display powerful psychic abilities, heralding their evolution into a group mind, a transcendent form of life.

In 1996, a script from Tony Mulholland was commissioned, resulting in a new, two-part adaptation. The BBC produced the two-hour radio dramatization of the novel, broadcasting it on BBC Radio 4 in November 1997. The recording was released on cassette in 1998 and on CD by BBC Audiobooks in 2007 Clarke's novel was nominated for the Retro Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2004.

Yeah, you're right on top about the Beltway Puppets.
Hopefully the scare passes over soon but it sure starts to smell of 1984
Anyway thanks for the radio play.
I like your blog. Keep it up.
