Buffy fans: Could Sarah Michelle Gellar be coming back to TV?

PopMatters has an interview with Clash instigator and Libertines hypeman Mick Jones.

Slate wonders why A-List stars like George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Tom Hanks are avoiding the picket lines during the WGA strike. Meanwhile, Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien are paying their staffers out-of-pocket.

This New York Times feature is about Stewart O'Nan, the novelist whose newest book, Last Night at the Lobster, was inspired by a news article about a Red Lobster closing.

List season continues with Gorilla vs. Bear's top 17 albums of 2007. Largehearted Boy continues to update its list of year-end lists.

Meanwhile, Idolator has launched its Worst Album Cover of the Year Tournament. Let's link to a few more of their stories...

They also point us to an ongoing project called the 25 Days of Mellowmas.

They report that Uncut has made a smashing choice for album of the year.

And, per Bob Lefsetz, they say Led Zeppelin is supposedly playing Bonnaroo. (And so is Metallica.) I guess as a 'roo virgin I've officially missed the boat at this point.

Stephen Colbert is performing a live version of his show tonight. Since you probably can't make it, check out this hilarious video from the writers of The Colbert Report:

Much more after the jump...

EW has a video interview with Atonement's James McAvoy, who you may know from The Last King of Scotland.

Don Imus is back on the radio.

Brian Wilson raps.

This week Spinner has Daft Punk's live album and some West Coast rap reissues streaming. What, no Ghostface?

Tom Petty will play the Super Bowl halftime show.

AV Club has a primer on the Coen brothers' films.

Pitchfork has an informative interview with Lupe Fiasco in their news section. I always wonder how they decide which interviews go in news and which ones go in features; I guess it depends on which staff nabs the interview.

These are strange times. Billboard offers a ringtones retrospective, and TV producers are working on a show called Who Wants To Marry a U.S. Citizen?

Lastly, I've been meaning to investigate the Robert Plant/Alison Krauss collaboration, and this video seems like a good place to start...
