At long last I have a domain that is truly my own (well, at least until another Bil Simser comes along and demands to have his place in cyberspace).

The “desert of the real” is a direct quote from eminent French social theorist, Jean Baudrillard. In his opening chapter in Simulation and Simulacra he says that the world today is a place without origin.

Yeah, doesn’t take much to amuse me does it?
