My kingdom for a link!

Let's see if we can keep this small collection of linky goodness going as a weekly Sunday thing, shall we?

Megan Mullally has been cast in the Madeline Kahn role in the Young Frankenstein musical that is scheduled to open on Broadway in October. Very nice casting.

Best unexpected sports reference of the week: Alan Sepinwall, who describes this season of American Idol as "Melinda and LaKisha and pray for rain." (For non-sports fans, the reference is to these guys.)

It's the 10th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and South Dakota Dark has a fine post on the importance of the show and how it's changed what we see on TV.

I'd like to hear this: Chris Thile, of Nickel Creek, has written a 40-minute suite for bluegrass ensemble; the Carnegie Hall program notes compare it to a cantata in form and substance.
