Terry Gilliam’s Not So Airtight Garage.

Most people’s dads are rather ordinary guys. They come home from the workaday grind, strip down to their shorts and socks, grapple cans of beer and complain about things like the economy and their favorite sports team. But imagine if your dad was Terry Gilliam — the artist and editor who worked with Harvey Kurtzman and Robert Crumb, Jack Davis and John Severin, the lone American in the otherwise-British comedy troupe Monty Python, and the director behind such astounding films as Brazil, 12 Monkeys and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Wow, right?

Well, Holly DuBois Gilliam is just such a lucky gal. And, even luckier, she’s currently assigned the task go going through her father’s archive, leafing through artwork, scripts and other assorted extents of her father’s brilliant mind, hoping to end up with the contents of a really great book (which I will purchase in a heartbeat) or documentary (which I will force my stepsister to go see). And even better, she’s blogging about the whole process — right here. Needless to say, but this has become one of my fave sites to follow. Maybe it’ll be one of yours, as well.
