I like this new, vulnerable, look-how-old-and-decrepit-I-am Momus that has emerged in the past few months. Male vulnerability is sexy! Sometimes Click Opera is so relentlessly pleased with itself, so continually trumpeting what a wonderful, full and exotic life Momus leads, that one starts to wonder whether it's all a bit like Winnie in Beckett's Happy Days. No doubt there's a darker, sadder Momus in there somewhere as well. One that worries about death, about what his life has amounted to, about the ever-widening gulf between himself and the objects of his sexual fantasies. A Momus that scours rock encyclopedias in bookshops, existentially struck by the fact that he's not mentioned in any of them... and then he puts on his happy brave face and knocks out another Click Opera entry...
