this weekend i finally got to catch up on some tv and finally discovered sundance’s iconoclasts. i’m not sure where this show has been all my life, but i am wildly into it. they pair up great thinkers/entertainers/machers for conversations that often go into really unpredictable territory, and they keep the cameras running. feels really honest, for a change. who wouldn’t want to listen in as the creator of starbucks and the creator of all in the family talk about the american dream?(…that’s next week). this weekend, i learned that mike myers is crazy about eastern meditation and that deepak chopra should charge a two drink minimum for his stand-up act.
i think the fact that more documentary filmmakers are moving to the web to make original shows there will be one of the more exciting things happening in the next year. for the studio that makes iconoclasts, go here.
