I’ve never been a fan of Apple products. To me they’ve always been shiny empty cases with big price tags. Apparently, I’m not alone in my thinking; over the last nine years or so, a vibrant industry has arisen to fill this void. These days there are millions of shitty…

My Empire of Shit

We’ve all heard plenty about the economy. We all know it’s miserable. It’s gotten to the point now that its bleakness has become somewhat comfortable. Our Internet-shortened attention spans have made it so that we can’t remember a time when it was better. But even in this time of financial…

Les is More

In Submerge #34, we got to speak to Les Claypool, one of the most difficult to define artists in rock music. Fittingly, our interview ran a gamut of topics, and unfortunately, not all of it could make it to print. Luckily for all of us, there’s an Internet, of which,…

Instead, human life will most likely be snuffed out by something…

Thrilla in Manila is a new documentary currently airing on HBO. It follows Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier from their friendship to their falling out to, eventually, their third and final bout in Manila, Philippines. Whether or not you’re a fan of boxing (I am), it’s definitely worth checking out….

Scarred for Life

I was a rambunctious youth. I had an overactive imagination and an ample energy supply. The obvious result of this combination was regular injury. Somehow I managed never to break a bone, but I have had more than my share of concussions, stitches, cuts, scrapes and burns. You would think…

Palm Sunday

Unlike Christmas, Easter time is a much more solemn celebration—aftermarket bunnies and Peeps notwithstanding—because instead of the birth of a baby in a manger, which is cute, it involves betrayal, torture, execution and rising from the dead. I’m not sure what kind of gifts you’d bring to that kind of…

iPhone: What’s Next?

The iPhone is unlike any other gadget on the market today. Not so much because it works better or is all that unique compared to any other “smart phone” available, but because it has become a celebrity. There are more iPhone rumors online than pictures of naked teenage Disney starlets….
