Century Egg composes Chinese pop songs by Email. And a war is brewing in the Canadian art world. It's a war of loverz, haterz and haterzhaterz.

 

Century Egg makes Chinese pop music in Halifax. They just wrapped up a mini-tour of central and eastern Canada. They talk about their peculiar approach to writing music. River God, the title track off their latest release, was written in 20 minutes, while singer Shane Keyu Song and guitarist Robert Drisdelle waited for their rice to finish cooking.

 

Anonymous meme accounts have started a war in the polite, Canadian art scene. @CanadianArtWorldHaterz’s memes call out artists and gallery owners across the country, tackling issues of representation and power imbalances in the art world. @CanadianArtWorldHaterz quickly spawned reaction accounts, including @CanadianArtWorldHaterzHaterz and @CanadianArtWorldLoverz.

Sholem Krishtalka of Toronto’s infamous critical art zine, Art Fag, reflects on his days writing his own anonymous, and whether anything's changed.
