Sharing Steve :: New Stuff
Monday, November 27, 2006
Steve is shutting down his official site as of January, 2007. He has just made the announcement there. I am repeating it here for posterity primarily because is answers some rumors and because when his site goes down, this will be lost. Vive la documentation!
Steve's site has been up (with a few hiatuses) since about 1995 or so when it was started by Ken Dickson as a fan site. Eventually, Steve entered the picture and made it official. It has been through several stylistic variations. Hopefully Steve will eventually reopen for his loyal messageboarders.
We will continue here since we are totally unofficial.
Dear fans, posters, friends,
I’m sorry to say that the website is going to go on a lengthy hiatus beginning January 1st. It’s been a great experience for me to eavesdrop on all your interesting and provocative posts. I don’t feel like I’ve been a good WebDaddy. I’ve been, and still am, working very hard on a memoir of my stand-up years and it has occupied my mind for quite some time. On this hiatus, I will rethink my contributions to the site and perhaps it will arise from its cyber-ashes; I do have a few ideas that might be thrilling. Semidivine has done an outstanding job with the site and if it resurrects I would hope that she would be involved.
I’ll take this opportunity to settle a few rumors: I never posted anonymously on the site; there is no movie of Picasso at the Lapin Agile in the works; and I did not submit a script for Pink II (just a few pages), even though there is one in the works.
Regards to you all,
