Junk Drawer - 3/4/2010 - Back to the Future Edition


I grew up watching Back to the Future.  A version recorded off of tv.  When Back to the Future II came out, my mom wouldn't take me to see it in the theaters.  Same with Back to the Future III.  I had to wait to rent them from the video store.  But I did.  Then I bought them later on.  Back to the Future courses through my veins like....well, not like blood....but like some other less important thing that courses through someone's veins.  My high school graduation all night party (school sponsored) was themed around Back to the Future.  There was an actual Delorean there. They also had a trivia type game where they had teams and the winning team won $5 each for answering questions.  I told one of my tennis teammates who got picked as a captain that if he wanted $5, he better pick me.  I answered every question for my team and we all won 5 dollars.  Then they carried me off the stage on their shoulders.  As far as you know....that's true.  This Junk Drawer is a tribute to Back to the Future.   A collection of pictures, music, and video clips.

Marty McFly:  awesome teenager with a hot girlfriend.  really good at skateboarding.  always late for school.  best friend is a scientist more than twice his age....that's odd....

That scientists's name is Dr. Emmit L Brown.  He's super smart and has a dog named Copernicus and then later, the same dog, but named Einstein.  This is him wearing his mind reading device.  Unfortunately, that damn thing doesn't work at all.

One fateful day, Doc Brown was standing on his toilet hanging a picture.  The porcelain was wet, he slipped, hit his head and when he came to he had a vision....of vision of this....the flux capacitor.  And, as we all know, the flux capacitor is what makes time travel possible.

He put the flux capacitor into a Delorean....because if you're gonna make a time machine, why not do it in style?  Later, Doc Brown does some modifications and the Delorean can fly.

When the Delorean hits 88 miles per hour, some serious [stuff] happens.  (nsfb language in video)

Back to the Future has other kick-butt stuff too.  A dumb but funny villain.  His grasp of idioms is epic.  Marty's previously mentioned hot girlfriendWacky parents.  And an awesome song to tie it all together.

Clearly, Back to the Future is, on all levels, incredible awesome.  I didn't even have time to talk about Libyans, The Old West, hoverboards, sports almanacs, or bald authority figures. 

Back to the Future:  one of the best trilogies of all time.

 

Remember people, the future hasn't been written yet, no one's has.  So make it a good one, all of ya!
