A programming note: I’m experimenting with moving this links round-up to semi-midday as a lunch break. And let’s make it an official open thread, up for discussions of whatever, requests, etc. Take it away, folks. And really do check out the last item on this list. It’s gorgeous.

-I demand an adorable gay White Collar wedding.

-Modest Mouse + Lizzy Caplan = Winning

-Win a month at the museum, minus Ben Stiller’s perpetual sourness and the inconvenience of having to hide from guards a la The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.


-The expansion of Neville Longbottom into an Astaire-like, war-scarred badass is one of the best things about the Harry Potter movies.

-The new Gillian Welch is very good.
