Miscellaneous: Links

I didn’t plan on filing a post tonight. But I’ve had an excellent day and found plenty of good stuff to share.

John August says adios to MySpace. I have a MySpace page myself – I didn’t want some other Vince Keenan seizing it, piggybacking on my good name – but I never use it. I assume people searching for me on the web will eventually make their way here.

In recent days, Ken Levine has offered a tribute to Steve Gordon, the writer/director of Arthur, as well as two scenes from the original script that didn’t make it into the movie. Great stuff.

At The Rap Sheet, Jeff Pierce takes an early look at NBC’s new noir-inflected crime drama Raines, starring Jeff Goldblum.

And the U.S. print edition of Premiere has officially bitten the dust, a fate considered in this space last month. As I told Ivan, maestro of the must-read Thrilling Days of Yesteryear, I didn’t actively wish for the magazine to be killed. I simply wanted a once-noble publication to be put out of its misery. You know, like Old Yeller.
