Idris Elba, Stringer Bell from The Wire, interviewed on Fresh Air. (To appear on The Office.)
The Watcher on the much-anticipated sixth episode of Dollhouse, which is supposed to introduce a different, more Whedonesque, tone compared to 1-5. Seems unfortunate to start with more than a month of not-so-hot episodes (actually I have liked most of them), but we all must Trust Joss.
Analysis of the Kindle as it could affect the book biz. (sez MR: best piece on the topic so far)
Suzanne Vega on the significance of melody. Includes link to the delightful video for the catchy number, "You Cant Spell Smart Without Art," performed as testimony at a New York State Senate hearing in Albany, for real.
New-to-me blog: Sociological Images, intended for classroom use. Much media-related content. (via MeFi)
Kuitman Mixes YouTube is a link I have seen in a dozen places now. It's as good as all that. Click already!
