- Bill Murray Longreads – And then because I love you all very much and I was bored yesterday, I went looking for as many Bill Murray articles as I could find. It was hard to find the articles, if any written about him in the 80s and 90s, I think because it's only been since about Lost in Translation that he's gotten the current level of respect. Even still, I was surprised not to find longread profile pieces on him in Vanity Fair, NY Times Magazine, etc.

- Saturday Night Fever: It’s a Fake – The movie "Saturday Night Fever" was based on an article published in New York magazine on June 7, 1976, almost exactly 20 years ago. That article, "Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night," chronicled the life and times of Vincent, "the very best dancer in Bay Ridge — the Ultimate Face." Hollywood appropriated the name, Tony Manero, from a real Brooklynite, but the character lives only on film. Vincent, however, was supposedly real-life flesh and blood. So what happened to Vincent? He would be 38 this year, a full generation later. He would have grown into manhood; he may have married and had children. That is, if Vincent had ever existed. The places and the scenery were real but, the writer of the article now says Vincent was a figment of his imagination. "He is completely made-up, a total fabrication," Nik Cohn said by telephone from his Long Island home.

- David Simon on Wearying ’Wire’ Love – The number of people blogging television online — it’s ridiculous. They don’t know what we’re building. And by the way, that’s true for the people who say we’re great. They don’t know. It doesn’t matter whether they love it or they hate it. It doesn’t mean anything until there’s a beginning, middle and an end. If you want television to be a serious storytelling medium, you’re up against a lot of human dynamic that is arrayed against you. Not the least of which are people who arrived to “The Wire” late, planted their feet, and want to explain to everybody why it’s so cool. Glad to hear it. But you weren’t paying attention. You got led there at the end and generally speaking, you’re asserting for the wrong things.

- Why Lena Dunham’s ‘Girls’ Is Like Nothing Else on TV – When a TV critic reports on a new show, it’s okay to say the series is promising, even the next big thing, but ideally, one shouldn’t go native. One should probably also talk in the third person. In this case, however, I’ll have to make an exception. Because from the moment I saw the pilot of Girls (which airs on April 15), I was a goner, a convert.
