Tea With Chris is a roundup of recommended links, posted every Thursday. Here are a few of our favourite things from the Internet this week:
Chris: The heart-shaped candies are already getting steadily marked down, but you don’t need some contrived temporal excuse to listen to Lily Benson and Meaghan Garvey’s mix of lady-sung sex jams.
If Carl’s self-linking (see below!!!) I will too, sort of, because this roundtable in the new Maura Magazine on Tegan and Sara’s weep-worthy album Heartthrob features my friends Brad Nelson and Maura Johnston (of the magazine) alongside myself. We talked about Canada.
Margaux: Jack White and Ruby Amanfu sure can sing a love song.
Carl: Almost all my tea is steeped in celluloid this week:
Nelson George cuts deep into what the Oscar nominations tell us about how Hollywood still treats black characters – and finally helps me get over my misgivings about seeing Beasts of the Southern Wild.
Julian Hoeber makes a video essay about the way horror movies run screaming from economic issues.
Marker Starling sings about John Cassavetes’ most underrated film.
And by the way I write about a 70-year-old viral video.
Bonus: You should be following Andrew Kaufman’s series of verbal poem-documentaries from his visits to small-claims courts.
