Rhett and Link
Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal of Commercial Kings (IFC, Fridays, 10/9c) often do this thing where they'll take a block of speech that sounds far from musical (or rhythmic, for that matter) and squeeze it into a song. Maybe the ultimate example of that is below, in which a Harry Potter love vlog from a self-described "fangirl...with a camera...being an amateur" becomes an emotional goodbye ballad (despite mosquitoes that threaten to take down the entire production)...

How much are 800 handwritten words worth? When they're in the form of an ersatz prequel to J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, nearly $50,000. On Tuesday night at a London auction house, a bid of 25,000 pounds (or $48,855) claimed someone a two-sided page on which Rowling wrote a preface to the mega-hit series of books and movies. The auction's proceeds will benefit a dyslexia charity and the writer's organization PEN. Twelve other authors and illustrators, including Nobel winner Doris Lessing and novelist Nick Hornby, offered similar short-form items for auction. Lest anyone hope that Rowling's charitible scribblings might lead to something bigger (and bound), it should be noted that the document's final 12 words were: "From the prequel I am not working on but it was fun!"

Rowling.An RDF crew tailed Rowling for more than a year for a piece that includes interviews, the Deathly Hallows book tour and a look at locations that inspired Potter characters and events. The 20/20 special also will offer a hint as to what's next for the beloved franchise (besides, that is, a mound of legal bills). According to the Reporter, a November sweeps airing is planned. MWM

At a Friday-night appearance at Carnegie Hall, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling confirmed that which many fans had suspected: Albus' wand leans the other way. According to the AP, during a question-and-answer following a brief Deathly Hallows reading, Rowling responded to a query about Hogwarts' headmaster finding true love by saying, "Dumbledore is gay." The writer proceeded to elaborate that Dumbledore was smitten with Gellert Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle. Upon seeing his good friend go bad, she says, Dumbledore was "horribly, terribly let down."My Dumbledore/Uncle Arthur-from-Bewitched slash fiction just got a lot more interesting.UPDATE: I went to see The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee on Broadway Saturday, not long after this story hit the AP, and they worked a Professor Dumbledore joke into the script.
