Tea With Chris is a roundup of recommended links, posted every Friday. Here are a few of our favourite things from the Internet this week:
Carl: It was written before Mubarak fell, but this analysis of the dynamics and forces in the upcoming power plays in Egypt is helpful and clarifying. Thanks to Jacob Wren.
Ever wonder what it would be like if someone tried to rap in that hardcore-punk growly voice? Wonder no longer. As Damian Abraham of Fucked Up showed this week in the second half of a duet with Toronto rapper D-Sisive, it would be awesome.
Margaux: Lots of good fun, love and art-for-the-buying tonight at * S P H I N X * Beaver-DJ Blowout Fundraiser Art Auction! A fundraiser celebration in honour of Will Munro’s birthday. The art will be sold through a silent auction from 6pm-10pm at the Beaver on Queen West. Art from Sholem Krishtalka, Oliver Husain, Deirdre Logue & Allyson Mitchell, Ed Pien and lots of others including me. All the funds will be donated to the Will Munro Memorial Fund for queers living with cancer. More information on the Facebook event page.
Chris: In certain circles Richard McGuire is best known as a member of Liquid Liquid, the venerable NYC underground band slated to open LCD Soundsystem’s final show this April. He didn’t just play one of the great basslines, though – he also drew “Here,” a best-ever comic originally published in RAW. Now you can read it on the internet.
