Destino: Dali + Disney

What do you get when you mix Dali's melting clocks with Disney's animation?
Conceived almost 60 years ago, but production stalled due to Disney budget constraints. The project was revived in 1999 and premiered at the New York Film Festival in 2003. [source]

Need more proof that unlikely collaborations can result in the creation of pretty cool stuff?

Here's a sweet performance by Yo-Yo Ma and dancer Lil Buck.
I'm also a big fan of musicians who reach across the boundaries of their genre.
You all know I love Metallica, so S&M with the San Francisco Orchestra is a fave.
Eminem working with Elton John on "Stan" comes to mind, as does the classic "Walk This Way" by Run DMC and Aerosmith.
Oh, and word on the street is that Q-Tip (from A Tribe Called Quest, remember them?) has an album with Norah Jones coming out in October. Intriguing. [source]

So what collaborations, music or otherwise, would you like to see?


  1. That Destino short was pretty cool. A bit trippy, but cool. I love Norah Jones and enjoy her collaborations with everyone usually. I would love to see Adele pair up with someone...

  2. I have to say, one of my favorite's has already been done - David Bowie and Bing Crosby singing "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" together. Who knew?
