The Gallery

30 Jun

Dear Diary,

I am really looking forward to our next big Jumpers for Goalposts party on the 15th July. We’ve got a really interesting act lined up to play live and I can’t wait to see how he goes down. His name’s Jake Bugg. Good name, right?

Anyway, that’s not why I’m writing here today, diary, I’m writing because it seems such a shame that the creative energy poured into Jumpers’ craft competition each month has no outlet; it just shines brightly,¬†briefly and then that lovely light goes out. So, diary, I thought maybe we could celebrate it here and be like curators… in…

The Secret Diary of Jumpers for Goalposts

23 Jun

Dear Diary,

I hope that Joey finishes editing the film from the last Jumpers for Goalposts soon. Then we can add it here for you to see. I was a bit worried that the combination of world cup football and a beautiful sun-shining, blue-skies evening might get the better of us, but lots of lovely people came down to hear Hawks & Other Birds and make random stuff with us. Alex from Hawks & Other Birds is handsome, like a music professor, as well as being pretty talented. I really enjoyed his opening track where he looped his guitar sounds to make a backing track for his voice. I’ve heard people do that before, but don’t always enjoy it. Sometimes the looping process can seem more important than the sound, but that definitely wasn’t the case with Hawks etc.

Anyway, will write again soon, dear diary. In the meantime, here’s a photo from the June Jumpers for you.
