Flux Capacitor! Biff! Delorean! Hoverboard! Mr. Fusion! Huey Lewis and the News! ZZ Top!!!!!

Last night and today I’ve sorta needed to decompress. Nothing major, but something happened that’s weighed on my mind a little heavily. Basically, it’s not a big deal, but it does make me want to reevaluate things. And once I get to the point where I need to reevaluate things, I definitely need to take my mind of things. So, after hitting the gym, buying some new glasses and making some yum-yummy Irish Coffee Mudslide Brownies (go ahead to and add an extra yummilicious to that), Back to the Future came on Encore and I knew what had to be done.

Trilogy marathon!

As I type, I’m rewatching Back to the Future Part III and thoroughly enjoying myself. I loved this franchise as a kid (probably just as much as the Indiana Jones franchise, but that’s a debate for another time), it just always seemed so… fun to me. Plus, it’s like Sci-Fi lite, so I got to cut my teeth on a geeky concept at an early age, which, obviously, is a total plus.

Some people don’t care for the third movie, but I don’t mind it at all. I like the whole series, despite the fact that so much of it is total cheese (but I can’t judge these movies too harshly for that, I watched Con Air earlier and that film is so fromage, you have no idea).

Anyway, when your head is still a little muddled films like Back to the Future really help you settle. I mean really, you get a fifties sock hop complete with “alien” commands to go dating, you get a representation of the future (five years from now, actually) where people wear green strainers on their heads, and a saloon shoot out where the protagonist gets to shock the bad guy with a moonwalk.

Heavy stuff, Doc.

Anyway, when things settle down in my head space, I’ll definitely keep you up to date. But for now, I gotta get back…

Back to the Movie!
