-1 + -1 = -1

There’s an age-old equation used to represent synergy: 1 + 1 = 3. “Two or more independent things combine into a whole that is greater than the sum of its individual parts.”

I think there is a corollary equation: -1 + -1 = -1. “Two things which independently suck can be combined in such as way that their combined suckiness is reduced.”

Paul McCartney is not a name you would think would follow a sentence about sucking. He is a god on many levels. And yet, he produced the song “Temporary Secretary.”

Timothy Hutton has been in many awesome movies, and yet he also appeared beside Lara Flynn Boyle in “The Temp.”

As painful as each of these are to experience in isolation, I think that combining these two makes for a much more palatable experience. See for yourself. Play the above trailer muted, and kick off the above spotify track to play simultaneously.
