Love’s duality?

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 12:08 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again pure azure blue skied, golden sun laden, breezy and quite brisk island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Third Day of March, 2017; Friday according to Reuters.  Today, from ‘down on the docks’ of ye ‘ole Hyannis Harbor, Sea Cape Cod offers a cinematic gem via the late, great John Belushi.  Perhaps one for the ages in the 1980 hit film, “The Blues Brothers”. John Belushi’s genius as a comedic actor only pales in comparison to his musical talent, shining so brightly in said motion picture, not to be outdone by the incredible music created by ‘the band’. “The Blues Brothers”…’

“Do you SEA the LIGHT!”

The following scene is with ‘the mystery woman’, played by Carrie Fisher, and his brother (Dan Aykroyd), “Elwood”. Avoiding capture from the Illinois State Police, and a Illinois Nazi’s, the pair make their way off stage after a concert to make enough money to pay back taxes on the “Penguin’s” home (the tough nun who raised the boys), back in the grand town of Chicago. Perhaps this scene exemplifies the totality of this crazy thing we call LOVE.

You know of what Jake speaks, or, are more inclined to recall the mystery woman’s perspective. Either way, we hope it does not bring up too many bad memories. For after all, is it better to have loved and lost than to not have loved at all?

(scene; a dark, foggy, misty, grungy tunnel, with “Jake” and “Elwood” escaping their ‘fate’ from ‘the law’. Suddenly approached by a mystery woman with a loaded AK-47)

Jake: “It’s good to see you sweetheart.”

Mystery woman: “You contemptible pig! I remained celibate for you. I stood at the back of the cathedral, waiting, in celibacy, for you, with three hundred friends and relatives in attendance. My uncle hired the best Romanian caterers in the state. To obtain seven limousines for the wedding party, my father used up his last favor with mad Pete Trullo. So for me, for my mother, my grandmother, my father, my uncle, and for the common good, I must kill you, and your brother…”

Jake: “Oh please, don’t kill us! Please, please, don’t kill us! You know I love you baby. I wouldn’t leave you. It wasn’t my fault.”

Mystery woman: “You miserable slug! You think you can talk your way out of this? You betrayed me.”

Jake: “No, I didn’t. Honest… I ran out of gas. I…I had a flat tire. I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners, an old friend came into town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN’T MY FAULT I SWEAR TO GOD!”

(Elwood covers his head in anticipation of gun fire. Jake removes his sunglasses to make a wordless appeal, and the mystery woman visibly softens…)

Mystery woman: “Oh Jake, honey…”

(Jake embraces the woman and they kiss)

Jake: (to Elwood on the tunnel floor), “Let’s go” (as he drops the woman in the mud, to wit Elwood tips his hat and states,

“Take it easy.”

Have a good week end y’all!
