This film crew is thorough, to say the least. They arrived at about 4:00 am Tuesday, and showed up here at Estrella Vista in the early afternoon. They set up an interview in the house and even made some aerial shots of the property using a drone.

After sundown, I rewarded them with dinner at La Kiva, which was my first experience with a Karaoke Night (but obviously not theirs). It was a delight I was thankfully able to put off for over three decades (except for David Byrne’s depiction of the phenomenon in the 1986 film True Stories—which, according to rock critic Rob Sheffield, was the first depiction of karaoke in American pop culture):

Now I know that Tuesday nights at La Kiva are to be avoided for anyone not interested in sampling Terlingua’s amateur singing talent.
