RhoDeo 1336 Foundation 05

Hello, well I hope you enjoyed the sunday, where once more Vettel took his Red Bull by the horns, having been fastest all weekend he never needed to look back. Alonzo once again showed his cunning and kept the rest at bay be it just one second for the slightly wounded Red Bull no2 from Webber, who in his last race at Monza got the chance to wave the Tiffosi goodbye from the podium. Meanwhile the Vuelta sees the main contenders keep eachother in cheque, letting no names win tough stages, bit of an anticlimax, maybe then they keep their powder dry for the grueling last week.

The Beeb provides us with a great adaptation of Isaac Asimov's fifties classic SF masterpiece The Foundation Trilogy for decades now stories go round Hollywood would envision it, clearly this is not an easy thing. In an audioplay its our imagination that supports the experience  ... NJoy

Isaac Asimov - The Foundation Trilogy ....
The premise of the series is that mathematician Hari Seldon spent his life developing a branch of mathematics known as psychohistory, a concept of mathematical sociology (analogous to mathematical physics). Using the laws of mass action, it can predict the future, but only on a large scale; it is error-prone on a small scale. It works on the principle that the behaviour of a mass of people is predictable if the quantity of this mass is very large (equal to the population of the galaxy, which has a population of quadrillions of humans, inhabiting millions of star systems). The larger the number, the more predictable is the future.

Using these techniques, Seldon foresees the imminent fall of the Galactic Empire, which encompasses the entire Milky Way, and a dark age lasting thirty thousand years before a second great empire arises. Seldon's psychohistory also foresees an alternative where the intermittent period will last only one thousand years. To ensure his vision of a second great Empire comes to fruition, Seldon creates two Foundations—small, secluded havens of all human knowledge—at "opposite ends of the galaxy".

The focus of the series is on the First Foundation and its attempts to overcome various obstacles during the formation and installation of the Second Empire, all the while being silently guided by the unknown specifics of The Seldon Plan. The series is best known for the Foundation Trilogy, which comprises the books Foundation, Foundation and Empire, and Second Foundation. Originally broadcast in 8 parts, between 6th May and 24th June 1973.

Isaac Asimov's The Foundation Trilogy was adapted for the BBC in eight hour-long episodes by Patrick Tull (episodes 1 to 4) and Mike Stott (episodes 5 to 8), directed by David Cain, first broadcast in 1973, and repeated in 1977 and 2002.

Make Believe Recordings
Make Believe Recordings started out of Make Believe Studios in Omaha, Nebraska in the fall of 2011 by Rick Carson and Keith Rodger. Since then, they have signed a wide-variety of artists that accept no limits to their creativity and expression. Make Believe Recordings’ main goal is to give artists the chance to write, record and release music all within the walls of Make Believe Studios so they know exactly what they’re giving to the public: a product of complete creative freedom. The way records should be made.

In the next coming months, we will have releases from Sam Martin, Kethro, and Dojorok. You can find all of their music and information at the links provided below.
