Here at CoS we’re counting down the hours by eating fried chicken wings until the much-awaited ‘Make Your Mark’ posters for Labour are finally unveiled on some obscure website. For those of you who haven’t heard this is a brilliant strategy dreamed up by the Reverend Richard Greer and Alastair Darling’s Mum to get great artists like Anthony Gormley, Jeremy Deller and Banksy to exhort us to vote Labour. At the moment there’s a press embargo on them whilst the Guardian gets to exclusively masturbate over the images. Our undercover source at the Guardian says: “They’re totally shit. If anything would want me to vote for Dickhead Dave and Horny George it’s Anthony Gormley telling me which was to swing.” Gormley, 86, swings to the left (as previously revealed in the “Take the lift to my knackers” story printed somewhere below).

News just in from a reliable source… (first time for everything).
It seems that Mr J. Deller was actually one of three contenders for the tower project in the Olympic Park with the exteemed Mr A. Gormley being the other.
In the end it was a head to head between Kapoor and Tony, who proposed a £100milion figure of himself(!) complete with lifts in his legs(!!).
Allegedly Gormers is furious he was passed over for the Kapoor Helter Skelter.
Originally Tony’s tower design only had stairs, which is of course illegal, (he wanted the general public to walk up, presumably on their knees), but of course provision had to made for disabled access and lazy-as-fuck art dealers, so lifts would have had to be put in the legs. These then would have had to ascend at an angle which made them very pricey apparently.
More amusingly to CoS is the idea of ascending in an elevator towards Anthony Gormley’s giant metal balls. Dizzy heights indeed!
If anyone has any drawings/desgns they can leak to us of said ‘sculpture’ we’d love to see them. There £8.50 in it for you (see comment on one of the previous threads).
If anyone can confirm the Anthony Gormley does indeed have giant balls, there a fiver in it for you – that’s from our own pockets.

We’re pretty shocked at the outcome regarding the competition for the Olympic Park project.
What surprising results! Especially as one of the two proposals is from a public-friendly museum stalwart and mainstream/establishment artist.
