I'm Such A Geek..

Right on the heels of my second public declaration of Back To The Future as my #1 favorite movie (the first time was on my very first blog post. Don't belive me? Check it out, I called it Blog Zero - The Origin.), I find out exactly how much of geek I really am.

See, Back To The Future is celebrating it's 25th anniversary of it's release with a couple of big events. One is the full on, high-def remastered, outatime badass release of the entire trilogy on Blu-ray on the 26th of October. AMC Theaters is jumping on the bandwagon with a special showing of the original film, Back To The Future, in theaters on 10/23 and on 10/25 in select cities, one of which is close to me. I'm such a geek I bought tickets to go see it.

Think about that for a second. I currently OWN the trilogy on DVD. I can go home and pop in the disc and watch the movie whenever I want and I bought two tickets to see it IN THEATERS!!!Not to mention that I was thinking about getting the "DeLorean Edition" of the Blu-Ray release, which comes with a scale model of the DeLorean from BttF II.

How much of a geek am I, huh? See people, these are the things that prevent me from getting girlfriends. No woman in their right mind would go out with a guy who gets all hyped up about a 25 year old movie being shown in theaters again... My only solace is that a good friend of mine from college is coming with me. Of course, SHE's married so she can afford a geek out. Me, I have no excuse.. But, while I am a *HUGE* geek for doing this, at least I'm not the only one.

And I just realized the Blu-Ray comes out NEXT TUESDAY!! YEAH!!!

*reads last bit and hangs head in shame*


I am such a geek...


  1. Are you kidding me? Who WOULDN'T love to see their favorite classics in theatres? Especially if they never got to in the first place, or were too young to remember! I would have totally asked to go along, except I may or may not be outta town, and also wouldn't want to step on anyone's toes. Back to the Future is AWESOME! Why do you think I liked your FB status about it? I'm actually totally jealous that you get to go. Geek Pride!


  2. L, I offered my spare ticket to anyone who wanted it. You wouldn't have been stepping on any toes at all. (The possibly out of town bit, I do understand, though.) Geek Pride!

  3. man.......but seriously, L, i agree with you 100%, man. i personally think being a geek or nerd (yes, there is a HUUUUGE difference), is a great thing. a lot of stuff that came out in the us came from the very geeks you are all talking oh so fondly of. And rodney, just like you tell me, hold your head up to love, cuz you will find some one for you. you just need to look!! and yes, i've been looking.
