Most nights when we arrive at St-Denis and Jarry, if it’s close to 8pm, people are marching back and forth in crosswalks, with the light. This goes on for some time as the crowd builds up. And then, in a manner I can’t quite fathom, we take the intersection. People just walk right in and […]
I totally broke the rules too. Most people just list the first five websites they go to every day, or go back through their browser histories. I wrote an essay, I listed more than 5 websites, and they’re not exactly the first five I hit in sequence (Create Digital Music is usually read at night). […]
