Default Bias Lighting?

Where can I buy a bias light?

Is it just a bulb that I can purchase in any hardware store?

Bias lighting only works well IF your walls are the correct color...

See, this is the kind of stuff that I need to know.

My walls are white, but I might have the VT25 mounted in such a way that it's enclosed and there will be shadows on the wall behind it.

Got any reading material about bias lighting that I could look over, or anything I should know?

This will get you started - http://www.cinemaquestinc.com/ideal_lume.htm

For bias lighting the proper color is technically known as D65 white, and the correct intensity is 10 percent of the TV's peak light level.

Thanks for that.

YouTube makes it seem as easy as just popping a 6500K bulb behind your TV, but apparently like most "DIY cheap! cheap! cheap!" things on YouTube, it isn't that easy.
