There's an Opera Out on the Turnpike

Sorry if you guys have already seen this, but it just blows my tiny mind:

James Brown and Luciano Pavarotti together again for the first time.

Seriously, this is crossover gone totally gonzo amuck. The only thing I can imagine to top this would be something interspecies -- Celine Dion and Shamu the Whale dueting on "Louie Louie," maybe.

I sat transfixed as I watched it. James was not messing around, he was all business, working it hard at first. He kept working it hard, but loosened up a bit after half way.

My 4 year old daughter walked into the room as I was watching and said she wished that she could walk into the computer and see those men. "Me too honey."

I had no idea or belief that that would work in any way, shape, or form.

Yet it did for me.
