Stage one is complete! The Gay Masters themselves, the characters in this piece "went all big" just in the nick of time for the last gathering of Daisy Campbell's 'Book Of Horkos' last monday evening. A wonderful time was had by all, as myself and fellow signatories presented their work including extracts from two completed novels, two new plays, a musical, several beautiful pieces of song and music, a raucous singalong paen to glossolalia, a comic, an essay on the infamous historical figure Hassan-i-Sabbah, a painting, a photo book, the first twenty chapters of the fabulous Irving Rappaport's memoirs, AND a jacket made entirely of something called "dreambones". Amazing and inspiring stuff!

Anyway,here are the gay masters, presented for you by their spokesperson Horkos himself (i had to give them nicknames whilst working on them and the names have now stuck!), so you can see where we're going with this. I have most of the components now for phase two - completion of the framework for the table chairs and clock - although many of them haven't been paid for yet - eek! - so that'll be coming together over the next couple of weeks

It's been such a wild ride, have learned a lot, and am really looking forward to be able to share the finished THING with the world - have already had several inquiries from festivals to take them along - am going to need a ton of varnish and some scaffolding to be able to install them without damaging them.

Thanks to all of you that have contributed cash or otherwise helped with this so far. TBH it's been so inspiring that i've already built another twenty three of these in my head!

only one day to go before the first part of this project needs to be completed - tomorrow (Jan 23rd) marks the second signing of the book of hork Horkos. AND I've foolishly agreed for it to take place at my house, so if I fuck up my solemn oath and the book gets burned, I've nowhere to hide from 22 pissed off artists!! Still loads to do for the actual clock, even though the amazing metalwork frame and all the larger pieces of wood are getting delivered today and tomorrow, but reasonably confident that "gay masters will go all big" before then.

Meanwhile, here are some pictures for you so you can see where I'm up to - please continue to share this campaign on your feeds, and hopefully we'll be rocking around the clock in no time :)

just waiting for some paint to dry whilst whittling down the lip on the underside ofnw mixing bowl. All the stars are coming together now, the first phase of this thing "to make the gay masters go all big" should be ready by Monday (or ELSE, screams Horkos in the back of my mind), but still a few bits and pieces to get (like the rent, which I've been spending on steel and big bolts instead of rent!!), so to this end I've just added a fabulous new reward - I'll upload a video to my YouTube channel showing the gay masters dancing to music of your choice for only 8 measly quid. I realise its basically an expensive jukebox, but then it's cheap considering the forces at play here - it's not every day you'll get to see your favourite novelty clock dancing to Balkan noseflute music or Serge Gainsbourg is it? They DO of course, they fucking love it, but usually you won't get to see them :) You can now, for 8 quid.

so I'm learning how to do this thing called button polishing, for the edges of the gay masters, and I download some instructions into my phone and the document is called M2U3 - the word MU, embedded in the number 23. Not in any way spooky. Hail Eris! This might not mean very much to some people, but to others it most definitely will.

Whilst we're here, has anyone been having any time x technology trouble lately? There's a lot of it about.

So its all coming together - i have already had a request to display the clock at an april fools event run by legendary Hacienda DJ Greg Wilson!

Meanwhile the plans are all in thanks to the long suffering ed and peter at BEEP studios, the metalworks are being forged in the fires of creation somewhere in the Cornish hinterlands, most of the materials have been bought or are on their way, the wonderful Ali forbes is jigsawing the figures over the next few days, and the panic has begun to set in, partially because frankly I don't know what I'm doing (but I DO know that I am doing it nevertheless), and partially because I am now starting to spend the rent on building this thing. Please give generously so that Beryl will not be made homeless :)

I hope to update you again with another film over the coming days, although my computer exploded last week! You'll have to go there in all of your wonderfu human imaginations for now.

Have a great day!
