- Damn that was fun.
And damn I'm gonna miss these little adventures Don
and I find ourselves on. Everyone can hope all they
want that 2015 is gonna bleed into the rest of the
decade but I can almost guarangoddamntee it won't.
2015 will be a standalone year and this is probably
the last time Don and I will be at a Back to the
Future event together. Here's hoping I'm wrong. But it
was a fun night...
- There is so much
left out of that video. LOL.
- So sadly what was
once a full-fledged 13 city, 15 stop tour for the
documentary and band is now completely cancelled and
last night was most likely the only stop that will
have the movie/band/car all at once. The logistics for
actually funding a tour this ambitious (the band and a
time machine at every theater) proved to be too much
and part of that has to do with signing a deal with
Netflix: you assure millions upon millions of people
will see your film (certainly great for those IN it),
but you also cannibalize your sales and most certainly
a tour. However, knowing that didn't lessen the fun we
all had (well, most of us) hanging out and enjoying
the spectacle of it all.
- I also have
to take another minute to thank Jay and crew
that I've become pretty close to in the past couple of
months. I've been trying to help supply the Time
Machines for the whole tour (a nice plus to come from
a year of building the RentTheDelorean network) and in
our back and forths Jay and I have found
ourselves in hour long conversations about everything
under the sun. Been able to help out with some
technical issues with the Back in Time doc as well as
just shooting the shit about everything. There's
mutual respect and that goes a long way. What these
guys accomplished with this documentary is pretty
spectacular considering its beginnings as a
Kickstarter campaign with ZERO people from the film
attached. Before you knew it, they had Fox, Lloyd,
Zemeckis... and then SPIELBERG? WHAAAAAT? Remarkable.
The nice thing is I followed the project long
before I even had a time machine and now I feel
like part of the family. When Don was signing the
Blu-Ray he said "shit you're in it more than
I am, you sign it." LOL. And, well, for this
movie he's right. It's an honor and it's something
that will help me TREMENDOUSLY in the future with my
Hats & Minigolf pitches. What a great way to
transition from 2015 to 2016.
- The night was as
fun as it looked and COLD! Damn! Finally some fall
weather up in here! Oh man, so glad October is over,
so glad this movie is out, so glad I'm about a week
away from being OFF the rest of the year for all
intents and purposes.
