October 21, 2015, was the date that Doc Brown, Marty McFly, and Jennifer Parker visited in Back to the Future: Part II, and, by no mere coincidence, 2015 is the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future.

For that reason, on the 21st of every month leading up to the big day, Fanbase Press invites you to join actor Samm Levine (Freaks and Geeks, Selfie) and FP Senior Contributor Drew Siragusa as they revisit the locations used in the BTTF films. Along the way, they will be joined by contributors writing about what Back to the Future means to them and how it has influenced their lives over the past three decades.

For those who live and work in the NoHo Arts District of California, you may already be aware of the plethora of contemporary theatres, art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and other diverse locations that make the region truly come alive. To celebrate and further that artistic nature, North Hollywood will once again treat its residents to the NoHo Lit Crawl, an annual event that takes over the bars, cafes, bookstores, theaters, galleries, clothing boutiques, and other areas, allowing patrons to roam from location to location and hear dozens of authors read from their works . . . for free! This year, non-profit organization Shades & Shadows will be hosting a bevy of talented authors - including Fanboy Comics' own Robert Payne Cabeeen of Fearworms: Selected Poems - at Blastoff Comics in North Hollywood, which is just one of the many exciting stops on the NoHo Lit Crawl! We at FBC invite you to join us on Wednesday, October 21, at 7 p.m. at Blastoff Comics for a night of literary merriment and adventure!

Earlier this summer, the award-winning duo, Player:Piano, released a music video honoring the Super Mario franchise for its 30th anniversary. Performed by composer/pianist Sonya Belousova and directed and produced by Tom Grey, Player:Piano's Super Mario medley was a classical music adventure through the 8-bit world of Mario and Luigi. Now, Belousova and Grey are proud to announce their latest endeavor in partnership with the infamous Stan Lee: an arrangement of the iconic John Williams Superman Theme on piano (with a bit of cosplay fun to boot)!
