Fabulous TV- Iconoclasts on Sundance Channel







Maybe it's because I think Landon looks like Laird Hamilton, or maybe I was just in a mood, but I fell in love with the show Iconoclasts on the Sundance Channel.
The idea behind the show is that they match up two interesting and iconic people who really respect each other and put them together, not as an interview but more spending time together. This one was with big wave surfer, Laird Hamilton and Pearl Jam front man, Eddie Vedder. They have also some amazing pairings like Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu and Richard Branson, Barishnikov and Chef Alice Waters, and Paul Simon and Lorne Michaels!

This was so fun to watch. They followed Laird to Maui where they surfed together and talked about where the passion to surf starts...and then Laird came to a concert with Eddie and talks about his passion for music. Laird was saying how music helps him enjoy the wave and not be afraid. He has a song in his head and it slows him down and he can enjoy the moment. Eddie was saying there is no denying there's a God when you look out over the ocean in Maui. He also said the thing that blows his mind about concerts is to see so many people agreeing on something. I love that!

They're running them all right now so tell your boyfriend Tivo asap. Such an unbelievable show! I want to see them all!

We stumbled upon these Iconoclast and loved them. Two people who appear to be such oxymorans-but yet respect each other-cool.

I loved this episode of Iconoclasts, mainly because I love Eddie Vedder. I also liked the Chris Rock/Maya Angelou pairing.
