It has been a few weeks since I have had the chance to upload some extra content to the Donor Subscriber pages, but today there are three articles that might interest you.

Ugly Americans in Europe muses on the way Europeans view Americans and why.

Sound, Fury and Significance – Shakespeare and the Movies considers whether Shakespeare would have been a fan of movies and TV

Tolkien’s “No” to Narnia explains some of the differences between Lord of the Rings and Narnia and why Tolkien was not a fan of Lewis’ fantasy books for kids.

These articles are posted in the special section at the bottom of the blog reserved for Donor Subscribers. Donor Subscribers are those who are able to support the work of this blog–making a monthly donation which helps pay for the hosting, design and maintenance of the blog…and not only keeping the blog free from all advertising, but also keeping most of the content free for thousands of readers around the world. Now that I have started podcasting, the Donor Subscribers are also helping to fund the production, distribution and promotion of the podcasts.

A blog like this is free, but it is not free to produce. In addition, with the internet becoming such a crowded place, the blog needs to be promoted through advertising in order to maintain readers and attract new audiences. Over the next few months I also plan to start a YouTube channel, and this also requires funding to do professionally and properly. Therefore, if you can afford it, I invite you to become a Donor Subscriber.

Donor Subscribers not only help to fund this work, but they receive special benefits: access to more content, access to the comments page, free offers and discounts and more. Go here to learn how you can become a Donor Subscriber.
