Yeah, I thought the same myself. Especially that little scene where he gets his books signed. She had such a humbled and humbling presence about her, and to hear her tell Dave it was dangerous to build up some of these great people because it could make you believe that you could never do that or be that, I got it, but still, I always felt her to be a person whose every spoken word is poetic and important, and I still feel so.

It's my favorite episode so far. Dave really surprised me, playing Thelonious Monk's " 'round Midight" on piano. He's definitely more talented and knowledgeable than he lets on.

I was so so inspired by it.

This was one of the most inspiring TV shows of all time ... for me. The mutual respect these two have for one another was very moving. They seem so different, but ... really ... not so different.

I haven't been superohmygod impressed with the other Iconoclast shows. Personally, the one with Alice Waters and Mikel Barishnikov was painful. Even though I'm totally down with the whole slow food movement, I wish Alice would have just shut the [email protected] up. Christiana Amapour leaves me cold, etc.

But Maya and Dave ... wow. Dave reminds me so much of people I know in the community who honor the "old school", and Maya brings to mind the wise elders I know who understand what it is to be young and seeking wisdom without being superior.

This one is a keeper ... I'm going to buy it the moment it's available on DVD.
