You make a new friend. Make them a mix tape (or playlist, for the younger folks) that tells them who you are through song. Photographers, artists, poets: show us MUSIC. When I was a teenager I’d buy jazz records, even though my taste was for pop, metal and blues. I knew I’d grow into them! Now, I’m really glad I have them.
