Be Excellent To Each Other

Be Excellent To Each Other

I have to stop and wonder if the World would be a lot better place if everyone listened to Bill and Ted. But the world doesn't always listen to the most awesome sounds of this duo from San Dimas and thus, life isn't that simple. While some party harder than others, it is always suggested that everyone Party on, BAWRLIN!

basically bill and ted and the future that the wyld stallyns created were all communist. Listen to the grim reaper "weather your a king or a lowly street sweeper sooner or later you dance with the reaper". Does that not sound like socialism? I think it does.

Oh yeah, and Bills dad was a lucky a-hole. But then again, both their Dads were lucky a-holes. The hot wife switched which one she was married to in the second movie. Now that's what I call EMPOWERMENT!

They certainly weren't mysoganist. Here's just a few ideas for being excellent to the dudes and dudettes in your life.
Take your girl to the photography exhibit she's been droppin hints on
Show up at your bud's place with brews and 'za
Offer unsolicited compliments to your associates at work
Call your mom just cuz you know she loves hearing from you
Dap knuckles with the checkout kid
Party on. Wyld Stallyns rule. Just remember, God Gave Rock And Roll To You

I heard someone once say that Bill and Ted was the first historical Bromances story by a major studio. While I wanted to punch him in the face, I wished to remain excellet to each other and so I simply told him that he was most bogus.

I find Bill & Ted an excellent relief but if you want to continue the world of socialist movies, look no further than Wayne's World.

Wayne's World was very clearly a diatribe against consumerism. The Wayne's World program, created in Wayne's parents' basement for public access television, is the kind of programming a perfect socialist world could expect: programming created because the artist's soul cried out for it to be made, not to meet some marketing executive's Mammonist desires.

The film's primary conflict is a struggle against the forces of corporate America to keep the purity of Wayne and Garth's work free of the taint of overt commercialization: they are brought to the highest summit of capitalist greed, as represented by Rob Lowe's penthouse apartment, but reject it all in favor of love, good times, and rock and roll. Wayne's World exists to tell us that socialism need not be all uniforms, marching and Red Army Choirs, but can be as simple and American as the film's very motto: "Party on, Wayne." "Party on, Garth."

Then we get to Tia Carerra's character as Wayne's girlfriend. Sure you may take this as the White man's domination over minority races but you'd be wrong. Her character's family isn't oppressed, they're incredibly rich members of the capitalist ruling class. They're the oppressors of their own people, as surely as Rob Lowe's character is the oppressors of our people, for are we all not united in our struggle against bourgeoisie domination? Be we American, Japanese, Mexican, Finnish, or whatever, we are all together in the fight against the elites of all nations, wherever they may be. Tia Carerra's embrace of Rock and Roll, not to mention Garth, is a rejection of global capitalist society in favor of her art and her love. It is a message: the boundaries of race and nation mean nothing in the revolution, for we are all bound together by ties of class that can overcome every divisive label created by the bourgeoisie.

Party On... Party on indeed.
