Worlds Been Had Colliding: Diplo And James Cameron Edition

Somewhere, there is a swimming pool. It is on a hilltop overlooking Los Angeles, but on a clear day you can see all the way to New York City. To the right of the pool is a 20-person hot tub, and to the left of the pool is a thatch-roofed open bar, top shelf only. There is a DJ booth, of course, it is IN the pool; a floating DJ booth. Sitting around this pool on golden chaise lounges made of actual solid gold, are the following people: Christina Ricci, Stephen Malkmus, Zadie Smith, Fred Durst, Andy Richter, Wilmer Valderamma, Penelope Cruz, Chris Ware, Jon Gosselin, Jorma Taccone, Mac McCaughan, Brandon Routh, Paula Dean, Chace Crawford, Simon Doonan, Cheri Oteri, Frank Gehry, Denzel Washington and Jason Woliner. In the pool are the following people: Taye Diggs, Miranda July, Duff Goldman, Gregg Gillis, Drew Carey, Zooey Deschanel, Lisa Kudrow, Big Boi, Louis CK, Jesus Luz, AM Homes, Helen Mirren, and Tim Heidecker. In the hot tub are the following people: Wendy Williams, Eric Wareheim, Robin Pecknold, Stephen Spielberg, Samantha Ronson, Damien Hirst, Joan Didion, Sway, and Hendrik Hertzberg. At the bar are the following people: Clint Eastwood, Andy Serkis, Brandon Bird, Terri Gross, Michael Jordan, Charlyne Yi, Stan Lee, Felicia “Snoop” Pearson, Prince, and Peter Dinklage. Looking out over the city are Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Ellen Page. There are other people, too, but it is hard to see their faces, and almost all of them are wearing oversized sunglasses. The music is loud, and the air is fragrant. What a pool this is! (Image via @diplo.)
