TBT: Back In Time

Let's go "Back In Time" literally to a film trilogy that that has had a HUGE impact on our culture and is the reason we now have Throwback Thursday, the "Back to the Future" series!!!

This documentary is a look at the very real impact the Back to the Future movies have had on our culture. This tightly-focused film shows that what was once a little idea became something truly amazing which resonated through the culture.

Spanning over two years of filming, Back in Time is a cinematic monument to the immensity of the trilogy's fandom. By capturing countless of hours of footage and interviews, the crew watched as the impact of the trilogy became apparent. Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale, James Tolkan, Lea Thompson, Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox all give must-see interviews about their experiences with the movie.

                                                              Back In Time

Back in Time began as a project conceived by Jason Aron, a fan of the Back to the Future series, that was posted to the crowdfunding website Kickstarter in June 2013. Over 600 people backed the campaign, pledging over $45,000 in order for the documentary to be made The film was shot over a period of two years; while production primarily took place in the United States, another filming location was that of London, England during a Back to the Future fan event. The film opened theatrically on October 21st 2015, the day that the series' protagonist Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future Part II

Gregory Weinkauf of The Huffington Post said that the documentary "gets to the heart of the Back to the Future phenomenon, proving as enjoyable as the franchise it affectionately explores", calling it "a delightful return to, and updating of, a beloved story".

Reviewer Logan J. Fowler of the website Pop-Break noted that it was "a well crafted and awesome look back at the movie that changed so many lives in the past, and will continue to do so in the future."

The DVD can be ordered now at the MVD Shop or on Amazon.

Prince Harry, Rocker With A Cause

Wild About Prince Harry
"And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood"  - Lorde "Royals"

Honestly I have never really been a follower of the Royal Family, it has never been my thing. That being stated the major exception to that rule was of course Princess Diana. She was the only princess that really crossed over and made a huge impact on the world around her.

Kudos to Prince Harry for keeping his mother's legacy of philanthropy and giving alive. Last night the Prince belted out a tune with the band Coldplay in the backyard of Kensington Palace who was headlining a benefit for his Sentebale Charity which he aided in establishing in 2006

The proceeds went to the people of Lesotho in South Africa battling HIV and AIDS.
"Sentebale, meaning forget me not in Sesotho, has helped tens of thousands of children in just over a decade." The Prince stated.

He continued: "What we know is that HIV is a virus that thrives off silence and feeds on stigma. We must follow the example of the young people of Lesotho, and meet one of the great challenges of our generation with optimism, energy, and openness. That's what tonight is all about. When people come together for a purpose we can achieve extraordinary things."

Somewhere Diana is one proud Mama

Love For The Win

Power Of Love
Dalai Lama & Lady Gaga
"Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them" - Dalai Lama

It's the last Monday of the final week of June 2016. Yikes! We are already half way through the year!!!

Headed into the July 4th weekend I thought it would be nice to start the week off with some L-O-V-E, what's that spell? Love!

Pictured above are Lady Gaga and the Dalai Lama. If that doesn't say love I don't know what else could. 

Gaga joined Lama at the J.W. Marriott in Indiana to speak about kindness with the holy one.

They say example is the best teacher. Let love rule your week!

"Beautifully Squeezed Tube Of Toothpaste" Rihanna

Your Hand Is Like Blue Velevt
Rihanna & Chris Martin
Coldplay's consciously un-coupled frontman Chris Martin recently gave an in depth interview to The Guardian where he spoke quite highly of  Rihanna.

You know Rihanna, the music superstar who was featured on Colplay's Princess Of China? You know, her. 

Well Martin came up with a strange/beautiful/WTF? analogy to describe Rihanna's voice.

It's like a "Beautifully squeezed tube of toothpaste" he said.

This is a huge compliment when you think about it. How many times has anyone ever used a tube of toothpaste squeezed in a way that would make you feel you did it "beautifully" and utilized the whole freakin' thing? Yeah, I thought not.

Wow! Wished Chris would have dispensed some of these gems about ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, but perhaps those analogies were not nearly as endearing.

A New "Meat Loaf" Recipe

Dinner Time!
Meat Loaf
Smell What Meat Loaf Is Cooking...!!!

Grammy Award-winning musician and acclaimed film, TV and stage actor Meat Loaf is readying the release of his highly-anticipated new album “Braver Than We Are” for 429 Records. Working closely again with longtime collaborator Jim Steinman—a key to the magic of multi-platinum selling albums “Bat Out of Hell” and “Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell”—Meat has recorded ten songs in tandem with Steinman, producer Paul Crook and The Neverland Express, which includes John Miceli (drums), Paul Crook (guitars, loops, synths), Randy Flowers (guitars, vocals), David Luther (sax, B3 organ, strings, horn arrangements), Justin Avery (piano, synths, strings, backing vocal arrangements), Danny Miranda (bass), Stacy Michelle (vocals) and Cian Coey (vocals). Guest musician Ricky Medlocke provided the slide guitar solo on “Train of Love.” The tracks on “Braver Than We Are” were written by Steinman, featuring the first song he ever wrote in a storied career to the most recent. While Crook produced the album, Steinman acted as creative consultant throughout the recording process working alongside Paul and Meat from beginning to end, sending suggestions, adding verses and contributing opinions on every aspect. The first single to radio, “Going All The Way,” streaming now at, showcases a reunion with vocalists Ellen Foley and Karla DeVito decades after their first performances on the smash hit “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.” 429 Records will release “Braver Than We Are” digitally, on CD and vinyl in Europe on September 9 and the U.S. and rest of the world on September 16.

In a career spanning over four decades, “Braver Than We Are” is Meat Loaf’s fourth album featuring songs exclusively written by Jim Steinman.” With a painting featuring Meat and Jim together for the first time gracing the cover, the album hearkens back to the hugely successful Meat-Steinman collaborations “Bat Out of Hell” (1977) and “Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell” (1993), which together sold over 67 million units. “Braver Than We Are” is a testament to Meat’s artistic rapport with Steinman. The songwriter’s strikingly vivid style matched with Meat’s incomparable talents not to mention his wit and grandiosity, results in the two successfully connecting with audiences on an epic scale.

“It’s a tribute to Jim Steinman really,” said Meat Loaf. “It’s a tribute to both of us and our work together.”
