Long time no see

Haram Bawbag is in its final stages, and I am very bored with sanding.  It looks very nice though, and my second attempt at lighting will be happening tomorrow as I want to finish it so that it can be used for promotion.

Little Shiva is taking an enormous amount of physical strength in the absence of a person to help with it.  It is very difficult to see something this big.  Had to buy a new jigsaw to start the base for it, which is huge.  The old one died almost immediately. I don’t anticipate too many problems other than strength and lack of help in resolving the issues.  I’m current resting whilst stuffing it so that the shape will be perfect.  It is very tiring and space consuming work.

Sewing progressing nicely and starting to acquire that cannot stop staring quality I like to try and hit.

Hope everyone apart from my repellent family are OK

Brutally hard work

Little Shiva is now in glorious shape and is ready for the resin process to start.  I will have to organise some movers to shift it into position as he is very heavy.

Awaiting some specialist sandpaper and lighting for Haram Bawbag, otherwise it is pretty much complete.

Sewing will recommence on Friday for the rest of the work, although I am less excited about that.

Update coming soon.

So the drama continues….

So this week I am doing a kind of souped up turbo fabric mache for Little Shiva, which is taking a lot of time but Little Shiva is looking pretty on point.

Haram Bawbag, which is about friendship, women and Islam via the medium of a  Billionaire Lybian warlord I used to quite like, is awaiting new lighting as the first attempt was a bit too Christmas tree for my liking.  Otherwise going well and I think it will also be a good result.  Certainly a good practise run for the finishing months on Little Shiva.

I think I may have inadvertently invented a new sport in the course of planning the Grimes piece.  I like it though, it is a winner.  There will be a short delay whilst I amass the relevant pieces as I am not rich and I have to be devious to keep up with my mad ideas.

Apart from that, sewing going well and I’m looking forward to getting this finished and getting onto the next phase.

For those who do not know already, this is Grimes.

Greetings – a creative post

Working on the finishing touches before the hard part starts with Little Shiva whilst installing the lighting for Haram Bawbag.  Taking longer than expected but interesting – as usual my hands knew what I was doing before I did.

I had made about three hundred flowers and thousands of leaves and had no idea why i needed them all, but all has become clear, so there will be another couple of weeks at least of resin work before it is complete.

Going well though, and I think I am reasonably happy with it.

If Boris is on again this week – I tweeted you, wtf is wrong? DM me or something

Digging Grimes at the moment, I am thinking I might do something for her after all this is finished.

Big changes coming shortly

Haram Bawbag is now in the final stages and should be ready next week or so, barring any major disasters with the detailed portion.

Feeling a lot better since the change of diet, and normal service will be up to date by next week.

Little Shiva is going to be the next big challenge, and as it is key, will take a lot of blood, sweat and tears to complete.

 

Thank you for your patience at this time.

Slogging

So bit further on with the admin now, and on the last two basic frames for the new work, which is an epic slog.

Made a few hundred items for Haram Bawbag, and spoke to him on the phone regarding my recent bereavement.  I am sure he is suitably chastened after that conversation.

Little Shiva has been in a few times, we have also had a visit from Boris, I do not know why, but he seems a little bit down. Possibly the strain of being surrounded by corrupt self interested liars, but who knows?

Neighbour has taken to sitting in a garden chair coughing into the garden, so I am considering privacy fencing rather than actually having him prosecuted as this is not condusive to a peaceful life.

Little Shiva has been postponed a bit due to the new stuff  being put away, but will be underway as soon as I clear some workspace.

Haram Bawbag is going to be dismantled prior to getting him out of the studio, so I am psyching myself up for that. Got some advice from a removal guy that was doing some work for me, and he agrees that it needs to be split to be moved.

Virus headaches now a lot rarer, but this has not been a pleasant experience. Back on supermix.

Apart from that, work going well and it is nice to have a two day week so that I can rest and work on other stuff. Some of the colleagues are a bit toxic, but we are used to that. Water off a duck’s back after the epic delusional entitlement of my family. It strikes me again that millennials are just boomers without the easy life.

The end of the long, long haul

So, we are now into embellishment and potential dismantling of Haram Bawbag, and Little Shiva is now undergoing structural reinforcement prior to the resin layers.  It is an enormous and complex piece of work, which involves a lot of fiddling.

We have had Little Shiva needing a seatbelt, Little Shiva being too difficult to move, Little Shiva being largely guesswork because of the size and apparent impossibility of embroidering a giant 3 dimensional shape.  It is going very well, however and so far going to plan.

There is a very small amount of assembly left, and I need to make the base to enable it to move freely on the base without destabilising it as it weighs an awful lot, and I am expecting to add another 40 kilos or so before it is complete.

I now need to locate an irritated vendor in India, who has been waiting for me to order for over a year.

Haram Bawbag is slightly held up with covid issues due to slow delivery, but is also going very much according to plan, and I am hopeful that it will be finished next week or so.

There are still a dozen or so cushions to finish for the Sikh section, and as this collection is a lot of surface work, will be moving back into more fluid 3d shapes for the next collection.  I will be doing a smaller collection next time though, as this one will be released over about six months and has made me ill at least once over the last two years.

Couple of Boris pieces still to finish, but I will be investing in some polishing agents before release as I am getting considerably more experienced with resin now.

Anyway, tonight is waterproofing, which will take all night and then some reinforcements in order to set the tongues in place.  This is so that the outer shell is one fluent piece.  It is trixy but fun.

Missing me?

Working incredibly hard, Haram Bawbag nearing completion and on target for getting Little Shiva into resin  by July.

Pandemic has been a bit of a godsend.

Writing coming soon, once I get through about a month of solid art fury.

Let me explain the UK Coronavirus Strategy to you.

Tried to go shopping last night, and very few masks were in evidence, and still a few sneering faces.  I am trying not to look at these people, as they are probably going to be dead over the next year or two. I am considering making a new hoodie explaining the following to them in very few words:

It has come to my attention that people still aren’t understanding what the conservative strategy is on Covid19, so I am going to explain this again.  Boris may also like to join us, because I think to an extent he has been scuppered by his own laziness and need for attention.  He isn’t innocent of this, but he is certainly a victim of his own poor strategy.

When he was induced to make the ‘some of your loved ones will die’ speech, he meant it. Up to half a million people are scheduled for deletion if they continue to pursue their dreams of ‘herd immunity’ which probably doesn’t exist. There have been many reports of reinfection from the far east.

This is not Sweden, nobody is spreading chicken shit on the parks, and nobody is bothered if you die.  Once they have cleared out the carehomes and disabled at home, they will simply focus on another group that they do not like.  They may try further inroads into Labour voting territory, they may try catholic areas in Northern Ireland, who knows who they will want to kill next.

The point is, that Boris has unwittingly been very clear about the strategy.  He is a terrible blurter, and I do not usually even need to hear much of the speech to know what is going on.  I knew exactly what was happening throughout Brexit, and I think I heard all of seven words of his truly awful speeches.

Anyway, the point is I was there for him when he needed me, and I am very sad to see his debut into leadership being torpedoed by the death cult at number ten.

So, since he was skiving off school when the non-preparation and strategy was set up, we have to assume that it fell to Dominic Cummings and his little clique, who have done financially very well out of Covid19.  The milking of the NHS for app money is only one problem however, Matt Hancock also has financial interest in the current strategy, so he is not really someone you want overseeing anything to do with health.

So, to pursue a plan of herd immunity they need to infect as many of the population as they can.  The only reason for any lockdown at all is to slow the rate of infection so that medical staff can cope with the deluge of admissions. People keep making the mistake of thinking the strategy involves preservation of life.  It does not.

The PPE complaints on Twitter do not seem to be coming from Tory voting areas.  Several very keen tories have reported empty wards and oodles of PPE.  This may be a coincidence, but I do not think it is.

Cummings has also ensured that the virus rips through the carehomes by ordering that over 75s do not get treated in hospital and effectively seeding carehomes with infected patients. I think we can assume he doesn’t like his parents very much.  The following is from the Independent, three days ago:

Carl Heneghan, director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine and a practising GP​, said he could not understand the clinical reason for that and warned care homes may have been “seeded” with coronavirus. 

You have to understand, to carry out a cull of this magnitude, not only do you have to con people into refusing medical treatment, or simply do it for them, you have to get people to infect each other.  Doing it via medical staff is a rather brilliant move.  It means that anyone already sick gets more sick, which means more savings on welfare payments. Nobody gives a shit about care workers because they don’t earn anything, so they weren’t going to make the mistake of issuing PPE to them when they could be used as bioweapons. Give them a badge! Likewise the supermarkets and remaining shops.  Who cares if they die, as long as they infect more people!

So Mr Cummings has simply employed his great love of complex systems to kill off a few hundred thousand useless eaters. Whilst you all clap! Very good.

I have been saying to people since the beginning of this that it is their responsibility to stop spreading the virus.  They aren’t listening, which is why it has got as bad as it has so far.  There is just no helping you.

Considering how much Boris likes being liked, he evidently isn’t the sharpest tool in the box, as the covid19 strategy is not a vote winner.  Whilst the economic landscape has to change to cope with Brexit, this extreme form of streamlining is going to lead to a very boring high street, as the smaller businesses simply give up, the banks tighten their belts and refuse to lend to anybody, and the bigger brand names he is so fond of demand yet more concessions.  We are likely to be left in a position where we are maybe lucky if we are competing with Indonesia for manufacturing work.

Anyway, to conclude.  When they say they are successful whilst misleading the public and the press, they mean it.  The strategy doesn’t involve protecting anyone and they literally don’t care if you are affected or not.  They are covered under the indemnity that parliament signed off on, and which Keir Starmer has been so ingratiating over. Once they have completed their cull, there will still be plenty of people who are stupid, deluded and vicious enough to vote Tory.

In the meantime, WEAR A FUCKING MASK YOU MORONS. I am bored with telling you not to play along. They have told you right out what they are doing.
