It's not too late to answer a quick facebook-esque personal question and win free pieces from me over at this GORGEOUS feature on this utterly fascinating new handmade blog - the bright side project invites designers to present themselves, their work, and give away some free goods via a question of their own devising. The tagline promises sunshine delivered daily - and I'd say it makes good with both free stuff and tasty food for thought.
This is mine - but to win you need to answer over yonder.
I was 16 and on an exchange in Dublin, Ireland in the early 90's. There I was, an only kid and very alone in another universe. Because I was an only child, I didn't have the older sibling whose job it is to indoctrinate you to better music than your friends listen to. I bought a bootleg tape in a store in Crown Alley of Lou Reed broadcasting in 1972 from Hempstead Long Island.
The song "Rock n' Roll" (about a girl named Jenny who discovers music that didn't suck) felt like it was about me. The world enlarged, got massively cooler, and more exciting in about 40 minutes of tape. The bootleg became my Vade Mecum.
Who/What/Where is your profane salvation? Was your life saved by Rock n' Roll, or what?
