SO WHILE THE INSTA-WIFE AND INSTA-DAUGHTER watched Joey and The Apprentice, I plugged the headphones into the laptop and watched this William Gibson documentary. It’s quite good, in a low-key way — mostly Gibson riding around in the backseat of a limo, talking to the camera about stuff he thinks is important. I didn’t realize that he was from around here — his family is from Wytheville, just across the Virginia line, and he lived in Oak Ridge for a while.
Sadly, no offers have come in to make the Lileks documentary I envisioned, though.
UPDATE: Well, somebody’s interested.
