“An unexamined life is not worth living.”Socrates
“The best place to be is here. The best time to be is now.”Wyld Stallyns
“Bake 40 to 45 minutes or just until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on cooling rack.”Betty Crocker
Wisdom comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it’s from history’s greatest philosophers pondering life and death. Sometimes it’s a 30-year-old slacker film franchise pondering time and space.
Sometimes it’s a trusted brand in consumer baking telling you how to cook brownies.
In any case something nice and special happened, if only of the most brief and frivolous moment, and the Nighthawks would like to share that with you.
But first, it’s time to make good on an episode we’ve long teased. What you have on your device in front of you is the Bill and Ted Trilogy episode of the Nighthawks Podcast.
We have a spoiler-filled discussion of the first two nearly-30-year-old films in the franchise, which introduced a generation of Gen X and Elder Millennials to Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan:
BILL AND TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE
BILL AND TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY
Then we have a brief spoiler-free discussion to talk about our very positive reaction to the new 2020 film:
BILL AND TED FACE THE MUSIC
Maybe the Bill and Ted Franchise, featuring the fantastically talented Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will never be considered “indispensable Art,” but it is something that we think a lot of folks need right now.
Be Excellent to Each Other,
And Party On, Dudes…
