I hate it when money is spent on dreary town centre sculptures that nobody likes and do nothing for the place. I love it when money is spent on conceptual works like this.

It gives me hope.

I am being absolutely serious here, folks.

Interesting Delph. S'pose it's down to taste at the end of the day, but I know some mega-talented people who aren't getting the recognition they deserve because the whole industry has become too reliant on funding.

Suzi once advised me to use both my disabilities and sexuality to appease the funding agencies. Apparently they 'just lurve' funding minorities. I was offended of course...

Blimey, I'm not surprised you were offended. For goodness' sake... you want funding because of your creative merits, not because you have a wooden leg, or whatever. Talking of which, I'm still laughing at that guy who was mentioned on 'Coast' the other day who used to set fire to his wooden leg and then jump into Hastings Lido. Ah, the good old pre-Health and Safety days...

I wonder if they'd be interested in funding my new work "Poo in a Sandwich Bag".

I really should empty my pockets after walking the dog.

Now I'm sat at work in the middle of the office and the coat over the back of my chair is starting to hum.
