An Orgy of Simulacra

Here in the glorious Dog Kennel Hill Estate, the flat upstairs are, I believe, playing one of the football video games, presumably FIFA or Pro Evolution. The crowd sound FX are realistic enough to occasionally make me think, Shit! Dulwich Hamlet are playing at home and they’ve got a crowd of 20,000!!

But in-between the songs playing on my girlfriend’s Spotify playlist, in the moments of fade in/out quiet, it sounds like an orgy is going on up there. A man-on-man orgy. A grunting, wild, and – in ways metaphorically so – utterly utterly penetrating orgiastic ritual.

Either Clifford Geertz‘s “deep play” of important sporting rituals has transfered to the simulacrum of digital football simulation, or one of them has got a really big, hard cock.

That is all.
