Gig-gles: The Flaming Lips, Singapore, 11 Nov 2010

I hate it when bands use stage gimmicks.

So while watching the Flaming Lips, I was really thankful that they didn't use any. I love how Wayne Coyne rolled out into the crowd in a giant bubble because my mummy told me that rolling out in giant bubbles helps to improve blood circulation by 16%. Or when Wayne was carried by a dude in a grizzly bear, it was precisely in line with the recent article published by the esteemed Journal of Very Beary Beahaviour which said that riding on grizzly bears once a day will keep the apple away. Or when Wayne put on these giant rubber hands and shot laser lights from them, it reminded me of when I was six and I discovered my own hands can shoot laser lights, and so I had dinner with Cyclops and he told me how to make a laser light visor for my hands, which I use to this day, except when petting my dog ChakaKhan, who loves laser lights more than she loves Puppy Chow.
