yes i read too many blogs, but that’s life..

It is in relation to baudrillard that i have pursued some of my obscure interests… like pataphysics, oulipo, the origins of structuralism. He is why I work in semiology and discourse analysis, beyond the fact that… so do my friends and colleagues. he’s a major figure in my history, and the focus of one of my independent studies in graduate school.
