Last night, I had the pleasure of viewing the cinematic classic, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure on the Big Screen.  Having never lived through The Excellent Adventure at that scale, I now feel much closer to the story and the adversity and triumphs that Bill and Ted experienced.

In an attempt to summarize the wisdom I have gained, here are a few insights about the rad world of Bill S. Preston Esq., and Ted “Theodore” Logan.

1. Keanu used up all the star-launching power. Everyone else in the cast went on to work on Murder, She Wrote (and Napoleon scored a role as “Man in Bathtub” in The Truman Show).

2. One of the glowing buttons in the phone booth is the symbol for infinity. Woah.

3. “Medieval Dickweed” is my new favorite insult.

4. Air guitar will always make you feel better.

5. Bill is way smarter than Ted.

6. I really need to watch the Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey DVD, which I got for free with a pizza about ten years ago.

And remember, be excellent to each other!

Ali was born and raised in the Wholesome/Creepy capital of the world, Salt Lake City, UT. Once she was old enough to blow that pop stand she escaped to the place that was the anti-SLC: The Peoples Gay-public of Drugifornia aka San Francisco (holla 30 Rock!). You can now find her throughout this glorious city slurping Pho and scheming with her best friend Pinky doing what they do every night; try and take over the world.
