links to old material added

This week a few posts have been improved, and some pieces I wrote years ago have been added (but buried in the archive).

If anyone cares, newly on this blog are:
  • the Star Wars movies compared to the Thousand-Hand Guan Yin

  • two posts that had to be directly political: something written when the Batman Begins trailer came out, and a rant about Spartan.
Pretty soon I will post (at the top) a cleaned-up old piece on what subtext is, using an old Frank Capra movie as an example.

If I can't think of anything new, that is.
