Am currently recovering from this operation (thanks very much, Hippocrates) so there will either be very few posts, or far too many, over the next few days, depending on my codeine intake. I'm being well looked after, but metaphorical cards and grapes are always welcome. The last of the current round of essays and papers is now at the Measures, and is both my (entirely non-cinematic) contribution to the Work edition Kino Fist, and a belated full reply to my enemies over the Jobseekers' argument a few months back. most of the other essays are here, apart from Emmy's and I.T's, which are to be found at their respective usual places. Profuse thanks to everyone who answered the call of non-duty.
