Back to the Future

Ready to feel old?

Remember the first time you saw Back to the Future?  It was a pretty cool movie.  Remember when Marty traveled back in time to 1955?  I remember thinking that 1955 was ancient history.  It felt SOOOOOO long ago.  That was the era my parents grew up in.  To be exact, Marty traveled back 30 years in time from 1985 to 1955.

Well, six years from now it will be 2015.  That’s 30 years since Back to the Future came out.  That’s just as long as there was between 1955 and 1985.

Ouch!  I feel old.

And for those of you who remember Back to the Future II when Marty traveled to the year 2015… where the hell is my flying car!

    That’s just cold, Shag. Damn! The movie is still awesome,though. And MJF is still adorable.

    Relax, we still have 6 years to make it happen.

    Nothing like a hot cup of “perspective” on a Wednesday morning. BAH!

    Funnily enough, there’s a guy who drives a Delorean around Sheffield where I live. It looks exactly like the one in the movie (although it doesn’t have a Flux Capacitor and can’t travel in time…)

    He leaves it in the supermarket car park and it’s always the source of much interest / people taking photos standing in front of it.

    Glad I could help everyone feel as old as I do!

    Stuart – Everytime I see a Delorean, I can’t help but stop and stare. They had a replica (or maybe it was the car from the movie) at Universal Studios here in Florida for a long time. It was inspiring to see it.

    I loved those movies. Those are some of the first movies I remember when I was a kid.
