All part of the same package

Over the past year and a half, I've maintained a pretty clear distinction between my two main blogs: while this blog is devoted to film-related writing, I maintain Conquistador Instant Leprosy (formerly Pomegranate Rickey) for the purposes of non-film writing. But lately I've become more uneasy with the idea of separating the two, as the film stuff and non-film stuff are but two sides of the same coin. As a way of acknowledging this, I've finally decided to post my more personal writings here from now on. After all, as Terence wrote, "I am a human being, so nothing human is alien to me."

I'll continue to keep Leprosy open in case you'd like to read my earlier writings over there. Below is a list of links for all of you latecomers, listed by category.
