Episode 25 – OUTATIME

By: Scott Rogers
thumbs_backToTheFuture_0269a

It’s here! October 21st 2015! The day Marty McFly went Back to the Future! Fans have waited for this day for a long time and the hosts of Cue Plot Device are certainly among them. This episode gives a great shout out to the Back to The Future trilogy.

But we’ll get to that.

BRILLIANT!

It’s such a good time to be an American and to be alive. It’s probably safe to say that the majority of humans like pizza. It’s just a fact of life. And it’s also safe to say the majority of humans (especially us Americans) like convenience. One modern convenience that we hold dear is food delivery services, ESPECIALLY pizza delivery. Well say goodbye to that thermal pizza warmer bag and say hello to…..

THE DOMINOES DXP!!

Image converted using ifftoany

Oh it’s beautiful. You can say it. Complete with 80-pie capacity pizza warmer, this 2015 Chevy Spark has gotten the update of a life time. It’s now a one-passenger, sauce-toting, soda-packing, TMNT turtle-feeding, pizza delivery machine! In the next 3 months, major U.S. cities will be getting them! Listen to Episode 25 to learn more about it!

PLOT DEVICE

61k8yRm9IuL._SL300_

Dr.G gives us a good rundown on a recent Audible release: Locke and Key. Based on the award-winning graphic novel series of the same name, this “audio play” is quite entertaining. Complete with amazing voice actors, great narration, and fantastic foley, this radio-drama-like adaptation is action packed and spooky enough to listen to right before Halloween. Even better, its free for a limited time. So get it now off Audible.com. Creators Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez bring you into a mysterious magical world of keys… and Lockes… though the Lockes are people not actual locks…. just give it a listen will ya?!

DEEP IN PLOT

Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads…” – Doc Brown

We purposefully recorded this Episode AND released it on October 21st, 2015 in honor of the day that Marty McFly went back to the future. Good times were had in this segment of the episode where we reminisce about the fantastic Back to The Future trilogy, and ultimately, lay down the cars WE think should/would be used in a Back to The Future reboot. Not that it should ever happen…

Yosh’s Pick
1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT
Picture1

Not too old, not too new. A good likeness to the “Delorean-eske” obscurity of the original time machine but with more power and style.

Chief’s Pick
Classic Volkswagen Beetle
238e280c52bd3d175c11ac764cf3b0e7

Sturdy, steel-built frame, a “timeless” feel, and style to boot. Hard to beat this pick.

Dr. G’s Pick
Tesla Model X

original

Hard to imagine drifting through desert plains in this piece of sweet tech but with science comes beauty. Complete with the gull-wing doors that the Delorean sports, this baby will do well over 88mph and you don’t need 1.21 gigawatts, just 120V power plug will do.

The Captain’s Pick
1990 Nissan 300ZX Turbo (with scissor doors)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Although not standard, this model has a modern take on the gull-wing doors sporting some sweet scissor-doors, picked as an homage to the Delorean we all have come to love. It’s not lacking in power or style either. Doc Brown would love this great time period upgrade.

Your Pick

What car would you pick to replace, or at least follow the iconic Delorean from Back to the Future? Email answers to cueplotdevice@gmail.com or tweet us @cueplotdevice!

PARTING SHOT

Chief wants to know what “deals” or special promotions you’ve totally taken advantage of and abused. We want you to beat our buy one get one free no limit Dariy Queen promotion where for a full year we got two ice-cream cakes for the price of one without shame. Let us know of some of your favorite deals-of-a-lifetime by emailing or tweeting us!

Thanks for listening!
