Great Scott! We're in the future!

On Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015, at 4:29 p.m., our today will finally catch up to the tomorrow depicted in “Back to the Future, Part II.” In that 1989 film, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) appear with a flash in their DeLorean time machine from 30 years in the past. Suddenly, they find themselves in the same town, Hill Valley, but surrounded by impossible technology and outlandish social mores. It’s a place where cars can fly, hoverboards are the norm and, most incredibly, the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series.
Meanwhile, Cracked has some interesting things to say about the Back to the Future trilogy:
Back to the Future is a story of time travel, moral lessons and a dangerous lunatic who nearly destroys the universe on three separate occasions and nearly kills the underage boy he hangs around with on at least five others.

My actor friend Nick Fondulis is performing tonight in a BTTF live show.

The Back to the Future countdown clock is finally done. I blogged about it 2 years ago.

Meanwhile Tom Wilson who played Biff Tannen has a second career as a singer-songwriter.
