Well, even without the unfortunate connection between the Adventures of Pete & Pete theme song and the once-in-several-lifetimes hurricane that caused so much damage and heartache, the redhead brothers from Wellsville would still be dominating this late October-early November stretch. First, there was “Halloweenie” and, now, we’re once again ready to jump back through the Time Tunnel. Truly, one of our nation’s greatest holidays, and one of our country’s all-time great television shows.
As always, be sure to stock up on your riboflavin. And be safe out there.
T-minus: 35 minutes
Tonight is Daylight Savings, so obviously we’re linking to Pete & Pete‘s seminal “Time Tunnel“, as is our autumn tradition. However, this year our night of Time Travel is special, because not only is tonight (well, 3am tomorrow morning) is the moment when we set our clocks back, but it’s also the date in 1955 to which Marty McFly travels back. Yes, on this, the night of time travel, we also celebrate the 56th anniversary of the DeLorean’s arrival in 1955 Hill Valley. Is it just coincidence that Daylight Savings falls on this very significant day? Or does this mean that at 3am we’re going to go back more than just an hour? A day? A year? A decade? Who knows? Just make sure to hold onto your smart phones. They might be your only means of checking this blog when you’re stuck in the past.

Best hour of the year.
