#1 I have certainly taken this from Dooce, it’s not theft if I credit her, right? I mean, this is The Internet after all.
#2 It should come as no surprise to anyone that with my uber Caucasian parents, and my growing up primarily in the back woods of the Northwest, I’m pretty white. And not even like red-neck-Southern-drawl-Texas-pride white, but like, peanut-butter-sandwiches-and-no-athletic-skills white. So maybe this explains my ever-growing fascination with other cultures. And maybe by culture I also mean art forms that are so beyond my imagination.
This video gave me chills. I especially love their little laugh at the beginning and their extended embrace at the end.
“The other day, I was lucky enough to be at an event to bring the arts back into schools and got to see an amazing collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and a young dancer in LA, Lil Buck. Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together. The dancing is Lil Buck’s own creation and unlike anything I’ve seen. Hope you enjoy” –Spike Jonze
