Great Scottish Run 20120 10k Road Race – Help Me Support TSWGO

This year, I am running on behalf of This Star Won’t Go Out, a charity which helps families of those suffering from cancer with financial support.

Please take some time to donate a little money to the cause. Every penny will go to making a difference in the lives of cancer sufferers.

Much love and DFTBA, Jimmy

EDIT: There was a donate button I’d set up to donate directly from here, but WordPress said no. Click the link above to donate directly to the charity. Means that the charity still gets the money and I don’t have to worry too much about paypal transfers 🙂

Where the hell has Jimmy been?

Gads, where have I not been?

Actually, that’s a no brainer. I haven’t been anywhere. I’ve been here in Glasgow tinkering away at a few things. Planning things. Scheming things. Attempting to make things. Not making things that really worked out. Drinking. Considering the lilies. Starting from scratch. You know, the sort of thing you do between big projects.

However, I now have some big projects that I’m going to announce… pretty much right now.

Big Project #1

I’ve decided its been too long since I released anything of note (the last thing being 2009’s In The New Year EP), so this year I want to make another record. I don’t have any money or a band to do so, sadly. Instead, I’m going to record a LoFi acoustic record in my house, tour behind that, make a little money then use that to fund a proper record. So there!

Big Project #2

Do you remember that awesome web show I used to have, Pure Tunes? Yeah, its coming back. I even have a production team AND a business plan. Two things I definitely didn’t have last year. I also don’t have a dissertation to write, so chances are this will last a lot longer, too!

Big Project #3

I decided that I’ve spent too long being a general slob and I’m going to get in shape. In the hopes that people will make sure I keep this promise, I’ve started a running blog over on Tumblr called “The Loneliness Of The Middle Distance Jimmy“. Yes, its a Belle & Sebastien reference.

That’s pretty much the be all and end all right now. I’m still making videos, still playing shows, and still angry at pretty much everything. The only difference is that now I have other stuff to keep me busy.

Stuff I really hope you all like!
