Collaboration of the Year: Yo-Yo Ma and Lil Buck

This is almost better without context, but here's a quick backstory from the man who took the video: "Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together." That's Spike Jonze, of course, because Spike Jonze eats gorgeous collaborations for breakfast.

I wonder where that guy keeps his skeleton while he's dancing.


This is really spectacular. I watch things like this and wish I could do something really beautiful with my body like that.



There, we don't all agree.


For those interested, here's a lovely video on the collaboration produced for Southern California Public Radio by an old high school friend of mine. It's really quite moving. http://bcove.me/a4s8iu6l

I can totally see that guy in some neo-bauhaus, silent tragic mime ballet. And I would absolutely love it.


You know, I know how a cello works. And I know how the human body works. I do not possibly understand how that much awesome can be gotten out of either of them.


heyyyyy I LOVE that song, it's Camille Saint-Saens, Le Cygne (The Swan)


oh my god. I can't stop watching.

and the way he curls up in the end. oh my god.


Wow, that combination has worked wonders. They could have been doing other stuff than this one. - Mint Springs Farm
