9/11, Synchromysticism and Back to the Future,1, 2 & 3? (Part 2)

Joe, who made the first film clip mentioned in part one of this post -
 9/11, Synchromysticism and Back to the Future, 1, 2 & 3? 
(Part 1)
about the links between the Back to the Future films and 9/11, also made the above clip on the synchromystic exploration of grey alien's making contact at the site of the trinity blast 
(the nuclear explosion's resulting from the Manhattan project)
and the classified documents search for by John F. Kennedy 
and the movie Back to the Future
I was watching Joe's Blast from the past /Roswell video about BTTF with the Roger Rabbit links and I noticed a date in the first BTTF movie on the DeLorean was Oct 26 th.
When I was looking up about Bob Hoskins 
I noticed that was his birth-date (Oct 26th), 
and not only that, but Bob was born in 1942 as well.
Bob Hoskins was nominated for 1 Oscar. 
Another 23 wins & 14 nominations.
In Bob We Trust? The 23 enigma?
I also watched the Seth MacFarlane directed movie 
A Million Ways to Die in the West this morning, 
which seemed to have many references to the 
Back to the Future films in it and I also noctice that
Seth MacFarlane was born on October 26th, as well.
And looking at this film clip above from Seth's TV show, 
it looks like he is a fan of the BTTF movies, too.
And while I'm on the name Bob and weird BTTF coincidences, 
I was discussing this photo which was brought to my attention by another Darren in the Facebook group, oddly enough, 
where I thought it was a picture of  
Phil Collins, Lady Di and Elton John at the London premier 
of BTTF, with Steven Spielberg, but Darren informed me 
(wrongly, but I could see why)  
that it was not Elton John, but Christopher Lloyd.
Joe informed the both of us that it was neither,
and that it was the writer of BTTF, Bob Gale.
Bob Gale
Elton John
I don't see how I could have gotten that wrong, do you?-)
Bob Gale was a creator of the cartoon series of BTTF,
" An animated series based on the movie of the same name. 
Marty, Doc Brown, Jules and Verne travel through time in the Doctor's modified DeLorean, bouncing from one era to the next where a different adventure awaits them each time. 
Between shows there are live-action segments featuring Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown with Bill Nye the Science Guy.
The run time of the shows were 23 minutes.
And Doc Brown was voiced by Dan Castellaneta (Homer Simpson)...(26 episodes, 1991-1992)
Here is Phil Collin's connection to BTTF -

The theme of the BTTF movies does seem to hark back to a fateful day in history and just what devastation atomic energy can bring to the planet and the movies seem to allude to a particular time the clocks seem to be heading to, especially in the opening scene of the first movie -
Too late?
Still time?

But the films don't only seem to be pointing to atomic energy,
but all energy which could involve wars.
Hmm...Gas War? 
And the price of Unleaded fuel is 1.19 (911 backwards?) .
Twin 119s (911 backwards?)?
Notice also the Army recruitment center right next the Western Auto dealers with the 9 arrow? Most people now realize that the war with Iraq was a war over oil, more than a payback for 9/11, even if that was the official reason...which didn't make much sense.
I didn't think much about the Texaco gas stations in the movie until I saw the fire chief helmet on the gas pump reminding me of the firefighter's lost in 9/11.
Of course the two puppets...
I mean presidents that started the two Gulf Wars 
were from Texas also, but that's not all...
"In 1940, the CEO, Torkild Rieber, was forced to resign when his connections with German Nazism, and his supply of oil to the fascist forces during the Spanish Civil War were made public by the Herald Tribune through information produced by British Security Coordination.
During the war, Texaco ranked 93rd among United States corporations in the value of military production contracts.
In 1947, Caltex expanded to include Texaco's European marketing operations. 
That same year, Texaco merged its British operation with Trinidad Leaseholds under the name Regent; it gained full control of Regent in 1956,but the Regent brand remained in use until 1968-9. 
In 1954, the company added the detergent additive Petrox to its "Sky Chief" gasoline, which was also souped up with higher octane to meet the antiknock needs of new cars with high-compression engines. 
The next year, Texaco became the sole sponsor of The Huntley-Brinkley Report on NBC-TV. 
In 1959, the Texas Company changed its corporate name to Texaco, Inc. to better reflect the value of the Texaco brand name, which represented the biggest selling gasoline brand in the U.S. and only marketer selling gasoline under one brand name in all 50 states......
Prior to the merger, Texaco's headquarters, a 750,000-square-foot (70,000 m2) building, were in Harrison, New York, near White Plains.
 In 2002, Chevron sold the former Texaco headquarters to Morgan Stanley. Morgan Stanley bought the building and the surrounding 107 acres (0.43 km2) for $42 million."
Maybe the gas war theme is the reason BTTF3 starts their journey back to the past from an old drive-in theater?
Which also gives the filmmakers a chance to flash the beginnings of  
Clint Eastwood's first films on the screen as movie posters in the drive-in.
Marty as Clint Eastwood (The Atomic Kid?) in BTTF3.
Movies are referenced quite a bit in the BTTF films.
The first movie Marty comes across in 1955 is a Ronald Reagan 
movie called The Cattle Queen of Montana
about the Jones family who are about to prove claim to prime Montana land and are raided by renegade Indians in league with the villainous neighbor McCord, who gets most of the stolen cattle. 
Two survivors are helped by college-educated chief's son Colorados. 
Now Sierra Nevada Jones must fight for her land against legal technicalities and assorted villains.
Oh and Ronald Reagan was born in 1(911) and died at the age of 93.
Same age as Mickey Rooney died,
who starred in The Atomic Kid.
"No wonder your president's an actor, he has to look good on television"
So much for that theory.
I noticed in the drive-in scene in BTTF3 a "Star" of David is formed in the center of the atomic symbol on Marty's shirt, which could also represent a sheriff's badge as well. 
It's a well known fact that most of the founders in Hollywood were of Jewish origin.
Also in regard to the Lyon estate that Marty grew up in, the French city of Lyon was where the Lumière brothers pioneered cinema in the town in 1895.
Lyon Estates? French city of Lyon? Lumière brothers?

"It has a significant role in the history of cinema due to Auguste and Louis Lumière, who invented the cinematographe in Lyon. 

The city is also known for its famous light festival 'Fête des Lumières' which occurs every 8 December and lasts for four days, earning Lyon the title of Capital of Lights."
 I was wondering whether Zemeckis and Gale were giving a nod to Kubrick's movies "2001" and "The Shining" by starting Marty's trip back to 1885 by heading for the Monolith (movie screen) and being surrounded by Native American artifacts? 
Rob Ager was of the opinion that "The Shining" was about Native American genocide and I think he along with others proposed that Kubrick intended for the black cinema screen at the start of "2001" to represent the Monolith unbeknownst to the cinema audience.
 Also in regards to 2001 (!?) there are two (twin) arrows 
which are placed like they have fallen from the sky. 
Twin Towers?
Is Doc trying to be a "Star" in the Drive-in, or something else? 
Vitruvian Man
"This image demonstrates the blend of art and science during the Renaissance and provides the perfect example of Leonardo's deep understanding of proportion. 
In addition, this picture represents a cornerstone of Leonardo's attempts to relate man to nature. 
Encyclopaedia Britannica online states, 
"Leonardo envisaged the great picture chart of the human body he had produced through his anatomical drawings and Vitruvian Man as a cosmografia del minor mondo 
(cosmography of the microcosm)
He believed the workings of the human body to be an analogy for the workings of the universe."
Of course I realize most of my theories about the BTTF films could just be horses#!t,
so here is another one which involves the horses#!t cart/truck from the three films.
" In 1884, Charles Dow composed his first stock average, which contained nine railroads and two industrial companies that appeared in the Customer's Afternoon Letter, a daily two-page financial news bulletin which was the precursor to The Wall Street Journal. 
On January 2, 1886, the number of stocks represented in what we now call the Dow Jones Transportation Average dropped from 14 to 12, as the Central Pacific Railroad and Central Railroad of New Jersey were dropped from that index. 
Though comprising the same number of stocks, this index contained only one of the original twelve industrials that would eventually form Dow's most famous index."
Dow Jones Industrial Average
And that is around the time the third movie is set in, 1885, that the Dow Jones gets going.
 "During the 1950s, the Korean War, the Algerian War, the Cold War and other political tensions such as the Cuban Revolution, as well as widespread political and economic changes in Africa during the initial stages of European Decolonization, did not stop the Dow's bullish climb higher. 
Additionally, the U.S. would also make its way through two grinding recessions; 
one in 1953 and another in 1958. 
A 200% increase in the average from a level of 206 to 616 ensued over the course of that decade.
The Dow's bullish behavior began to stall during the 1960s as the U.S. became entangled with foreign political issues. 
U.S. military excursions included the Bay of Pigs Invasion involving Cuba, the Vietnam War, the Portuguese Colonial War, the Colombian civil war which the U.S. assisted with short-lived counter-guerrilla campaigns, as well as domestic issues such as the Civil Rights Movement and several influential political assassinations. 
For the decade though, and despite a mild recession between 1960 and 1961, the average still managed a respectable 30% gain from the 616 level to 800."
Davy Croc-kett and 16 Tons?
""Sixteen Tons" is a song about the life of a coal miner, first recorded in 1946 by American country singer Merle Travis and released on his box set album Folk Songs of the Hills the following year. 
A 1955 version recorded by Tennessee Ernie Ford reached number one in the Billboard charts, while another version by Frankie Laine was released only in Western Europe, where it gave Ford's version competition.
On March 25, 2015 it was announced that Ford's version of the song will be inducted into the Library of Congress's National Recording Registry"
Sixteen Tons

And on the subject of miners,
Doc sure does pick an interesting day in history to travel back to - 
" On this day in 1885, 150 white miners in Rock Springs, Wyoming, brutally attack their CHINESE coworkers, killing 28, wounding 15 others, and driving several hundred more out of town.
The miners working in the Union Pacific coal mine had been struggling to unionize and strike for better working conditions for years. 

But at every juncture the powerful railroad company had bested them. 
 Searching for a SCAPEGOAT, the angry miners blamed the Chinese. 
The Chinese coal miners were hard workers, but the Union Pacific had initially brought many of them to Rock Springs as strikebreakers, and they showed little interest in the miners’ union. Outraged by a company decision to allow Chinese miners to work the richest coal seams, a mob of white miners impulsively decided to strike back by attacking Rock Spring’s small Chinatown. 
When they saw the armed mob approaching, most of the Chinese abandoned their homes and businesses and fled for the hills. 
But those who failed to escape in time were brutally beaten and murdered. 
A week later, on September 9, U.S. troops escorted the surviving Chinese back into the town where many of them returned to work. 
Eventually the Union Pacific fired 45 of the white miners for their roles in the massacre, but no effective legal action was ever taken against any of the participants."
Whites massacre Chinese in Wyoming Territory
"Must have gotten that shirt off of a dead Chinese"
"Must have gotten that shirt off of a dead Chinese
This line from this pictured scene above kind of backs up the Chinese massacre I referred to to in the comments above about 2nd September, 1885.
"Are you yella?"
"Are you yella?". 
A veiled reference to the Chinese that were massacred 
on Sept 2, 1885?

Meticulous research and observation.
Well done.

I am working my way back as i started on the next video about the clocks in Marty Mcfly's home and the 8.15 connection.

Christopher lloyd is a very interesting character in his own right.
