Marty McFly: That’s right, Doc. November 12, 1955.
Doc: Unbelievable, that old Biff could have chosen that particular date. It could mean that that point in time inherently contains some sort of cosmic significance. Almost as if it were the temporal junction point for the entire space-time continuum. On the other hand, it could just be an amazing coincidence.
So I’m sure some of you might be wondering, with me as crazy holiday obsessed as I am, how could I let November 5th go by without a single word?
In 2012, I celebrated it being the day that Doc Brown created time travel. Props to Doc.
And in 2014, I decided it was time to give V for Vendetta a little time to shine.
This year I decided I was going to ignore both of those for something bigger. Something more important:
Yes, this is the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, marking this this year as the 60th anniversary of this dance; this crucial moment in time. Not only is it the date that Marty is able to save the future, by ensuring his parents end up together.
But the date in which Biff is finally taken down a peg, and cemented as a loser no longer a bully.
The moment Marty “creates” rock ‘n roll, and heavy metal.
And when he not only manages to harness lightening, but is able to get sent back to 1985.
But that’s not all. In Back to the Future II, Marty goes back to 1985 in order to steal an almanac 2015 Biff gave to 1955 Biff, in order to we don’t have an evil future.
He he has to spy:
And risk his life battling Biff:
In order to ensure we have the right future.
Yep. Happy Anniversary Temporal Junction Point for the Entire Space-Time Continuum (or the Enchantment Under the Sea dance).
