Moody Monday : When talent combusts
I don’t know what really turns me on about two artists collaborating, but there is an energy when two independent creative minds come together that is extremely exciting! Recently we had one of the weirdest artist collabs, Rihanna and Britney and the result was “meh” but the BUZZ behind the song was a big deal! In the indie scene when Laura Marling records something with Mumford and Sons or Noah and the Whale, people go crazy-we feel we MUST own the song/record and insist on seeing them live and in fact, the same exact thing happens in movies. When two artistic forces come together and collaborate, the energy can create an interest that goes beyond the screen.
How did it feel to work behind the screen with someone, did they get along, did they fall in love? If all on-screen relationships ended up like Jolie-Pitt doesn’t it make you think what causes the relationship to flourish? Is it the actual chemistry between the couple or is reality getting intermingled with fantasy?
I found you guys some really cool artistic collaborations to ponder and think whether you expected this to come along, naturally or professionally. And if you did see it coming, can you imagine what the energy was like between these two people?
Hope you all have a good start to the week, it’s Easter for those of you who are celebrating, which means shorter work and school weeks for some so I hope you get to enjoy the weather wherever you are, maybe have some BBQs in the sun by the sea or the park…in my dreams! I’m just planning on cracking some red eggs (Greek custom, bringing the holy light home to bless the house without burning it down) and having some friends over, should be fun!
