"The sky was rusty the night I came here. But it didn't take us long to work out that it wasn't burning from carrying the sun on its back. It was rusty because it was pulling all that red sand from the Sahara, ice cold from its journey up North. I never saw a hailstorm of diamond sharp rocks before that night."
"We chased our dreams, woolly clouds streaming across the night sky. Made for sleeping on. While we dreamt up new dreams"
The heart of Lysistrata
The dreaming weaving martyr
Lies buried in the fire
Of Oblomov's Desire (Laura Hymers)
Are there dreams hiding in bushes? Which woman is Lysistrata, protector of the Earth? Has she been trapped in a game reality tv show to win a house for her and a child?
According to Timothy there are dreams hiding in bushes as this video reveals, so maybe he is Obly the Dream Catcher. 'The Dreams can be changed from one form into another but they cannot be destroyed, once they've been dreamed they're stored somewhere.,' is what he said when I accosted him for prodding in my garden with an umbrella, when I had simply invited him around to discuss the gossip about Obly, the collapse of the sky, the rumours which continued to surround him of his cleaning windows as he does in the opening, just being a distraction from his real activity for which he stuck his ladder in the park 'climbing on a cloud to sleep and dream. You didn't fool Laura or Liz, Tim! Although I have to keep this video private as I don't wish to be an obstacle to dreaming which is more important than anything. However we need to ask why Obly got involved in the debate around Big Sister, trying to break through broadcast wavelengths to tell the participants that the show was 'a scam'.
As Tim reports the sky has collapsed and the homeless are selling pieces of it. 'Along with pieces of the Berlin Wall and the government fear it will be almost impossible to rebuild the sky if it continues to be sold.' Yes, Liz was a mud lark, whom Obly met when they both were looking for buried treasure by the shore. I wasn't the only one to complain I had been promised clouds to play on. And dream. Nothing materialised. Lissie was walking along the bank like children who had been called 'mud larks' in centuries past for seeking their fortune there. Chattering away excitedly like birds. Yet no one realised the danger. The red dust from the Saharan storm came into London without any warning, driving north in cold air, covering all in a haze and sand which must have been terrifying to those who stood blinded in the midst of it.
In the Big Sister house where the housemates are chosen from the street, and returned by limousine to it, controversy rages as comedian Kate Smurthwaite playing Big Sister's Little Sister is forced to ask ethical questions.
'Big Sister is a scam' interrupts Oblomov aka Timothy West as he interrupts the airwaves.
'Please ignore what you have just heard,' pleads Big S.
