Ummm… What the fuck? The Light of Love, eh? Is that what this is? “Let’s trip the lights fantastic, let’s dream the biggest dreams.” I totally get it. (No, I do not.) Well… “Can you teach me this?” “It cannot be taught.” Damn. Okay, then what am I supposed to do with this? There is something about Lucent L’amour, Lucent Dossier, and Lucent Rossier… Or none of the above. “What about a Jesus dress?” Sure, why not. I cannot deny that “you’ve got to feel the feminine energy,” but first and foremost “it’s about doing your thing.”
Who are Ross and the Brothers Flemming? What is Suddenly Dapper? What in the Sam Hill is going on? Am I high? What was in that…whatever it was I took? This is crazy, man… Wait. I think this is a musical. “I want to dance. I am bursting with love!” Okay. Then, there is poetry and Shakespearean prose, with ukulele. Lots of ukulele. That is ukulele, right? Costumes? Sure! Men in dresses and eyeliner; beards and mustaches? Yep. This is my kind of party, at least in some sort of alternate universe. I still have no idea what I watched, but The Light of Love is an experience to say the least. I feel like I have tripped the cinematic lights fantastic. Now, all I want… Yes, all I really want is to “let my space period stain Mars red.” That is all? For now, yes.
