MySpace Surveys Go Retro

Our favorite characters now have MySpace. Here are some of their surveys.
June 13, 2007
Enjoy this article for what it is. It was written to be fun and not to be in any way a serious commentary on some of our favorite characters.

Imagine if you will a world where MySpace came about in the 80's. Long before the Emo population took over and used this social network to vent about how hard their suburban life is. Before teenagers filled every second of their lives at home in front of the computer screen trying to fill their friend's list with as many people as possible. This would be a world where we could poke around and find some of our favorite retro movie characters and post comments like, "Hey Wayne, I saw the show last night and you totally made that arcade guy look like a weiner. Party on!" or, "Marty don't worry about the audition tomorrow. The Pinheads are awesome and I know you'll kill 'em!"

This would be a wonderful world where Marty could post photos from last weekend's trip to the lake or the last decade's Enchantment Under the Sea dance. A place where Ted could share about the most non-heinous concert he rocked at the night before. We could all pay a visit to the Wayne's World page where (even though we know Garth is the one actually using the computer) Wayne will share show times and play some of Cassandra's (schwiiiing!) tunes. This would be a great world to live in but sadly it does not exist. However, I still think if it did, the following would be good examples of some of the surveys these guys would fill out and post.

Survey #1 Date and time: October 25, 1985 10:15PM

Name: Martin Seamus McFly

Nickname: Marty

Age: 17

What are your hobbies?
I like to play with my band the Pinheads, I do lead guitar and vocals (even though we got rejected today at the audition). I also use my skateboard a lot but mainly because I don't have a car of my own (not to mention Biff wrecked the one I do use). I also help Doc with some of his experiments.

What is your favorite band?
Van Halen.

What is your favorite movie?
I'm not really into a lot of movies. I'd rather be listening to music. But I do like a lot of stuff with Clint Eastwood in it.

What is your favorite food?
I'll eat anything with a Tab or a Pepsi Free.

Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?
Yes I do, Jennifer and me are going to the lake this weekend. It's gonna be amazing I just have to find a way to get there since Biff totaled the car today.

Do you love him/her?
Yes I think I do. I can see us spending the rest of our lives together. Rich and enjoying my career as a rockstar.

Do you have a best friend?
Not really, I spend most of my time with Jennifer. I do spend a lot of time hanging out with Doc Brown though. He is a bit crazy but also brilliant. I help him with his experiments and he tutors me in science. Science is way beyond my comprehension. It's too much to memorize. It's pretty heavy.

Do you get along with your parents?
I guess I do. They aren't really the coolest people around, but oh well. My dad is kind of a wuss and my mom must have been born a nun. I can't imagine a time when my parents were ever cool.

Do you drink?
Not really. Maybe a little but my mom drinks enough for the both of us.

Do you smoke?
No. My mom sure wouldn't approve of that.

If you could go back in time and change one thing what would it be?
Go back in time? That would be great, I could go back and stop myself from setting the living room rug on fire when I was 8.

What would make you happy?
That black Toyota 4x4 I saw this morning. I could lay out a couple sleeping bags in the back for when Jennifer and I go to the lake.

What makes you mad?
Being called a coward or a chicken. I go into a rage when someone questions my courage.

Where do you see yourself in 30 years?
In 2015 I see myself enjoying a life of fame and fortune. Married to Jennifer and living in the Hill Dale part of town.

Where do you see yourself tonight?
Well, I am going to meet Doc at the Twin Pines Mall tonight. He has yet another experiment to show me. Probably another failure but I'll still go to support him. So I better go get some sleep I have to meet him at 1:15.
