Nobody loves wasting time with a TBT like this epic time waster over here.
That is, until, I receive a facebook notification that I’ve been tagged in such a post and my face goes flush. My pulse quickens as I click on “review” in a panic, thinking my god, what wretched artifact from my past has resurfaced, what evil spawn of satan has taken the time to upload a picture of me from the braces years, or the brown-eyeliner-as-lipstick years, or, sweet lord hay-zeus, a frat party from the 90’s.
But good news, Time Wasters, I have a safe and epic TBT for you:
Below you’ll find a link to the complete episode of Eddie Vedder and Laird Hamilton basically talking about how awesome each other is in a 2006 documentary that aired on the Sundance channel as part of the network’s series Iconoclasts.
I mean, if you ever wanted to hate yourself and your life and the meager status of your current living situation, I MEAN, if you want to see two grown men with supermodel wives (when was the last time you saw Gabby Reece??) talk about spiritual worlds, the importance of waves and take a helicopter ride through double circle rainbows, then this video is for you.
It’s so awesome, it’s so annoying.
(But really, it’s so good.)
I watched it last night, again. (For oh yes, when not googling “what happened to Jesse Camp,” the first winner of MTV’s Who Wants To Be a VJ, this is in my rotation.)
I’m not gonna lie, it’s 45 minutes of time-sucking bliss.
Plus, it arms you with the right to work in the line at parties, “hey, did you ever see the Iconoclast with Eddie Vedder and Laird Hamilton?” which will make everyone there simultaneously think you are really cool and want to punch you in the face, which I imagine is what hipsters experience on a daily basis, so, by watching this video, I’ll be basically turning you into a hipster.
So click away, happy time wasters. Happy TBT, step away from the crusting pages of your old photo albums, and click away…
