Tugs at the heart strings of all little girls who love rock n’ roll, singing, riding their bikes and pets. Nostalgic heaven.
Amanda Palmer. Wow. I’ve heard about her for a few years now. I’ve seen people obsessively tweet about her, discuss her; I’ve followed her success through the interwebs. I was even at The Scottish Ruby Conference and sat in the next room while she performed to group of technical, geeky superstars from all over the globe (yes, I should […]
