monday march 10

today i stopped by duffy's to watch a little of the leafs game, arriving just as the second period was getting underway. as the period progressed, i realized that the guy playing live music at the front of the bar hadn't stopped for even a single second. like, i understand not bothering with between-song banter, but "between songs" wasn't even a thing here -- it was just constant, uninterrupted guitar riffs even as he transitioned from one song to the next. no chances to politely clap, even. although i enjoyed his selection of covers (new york dolls, the seeds, velvet underground, etc.), it wasn't until he played a bit of "sister ray" that i realized that was the exact song the whole set reminded me of. just nonstop unrelenting guitar chords, forever and ever and ever. he played through the entire second period.
