In the Flesh

Oh, Carrie. It seems that our dethroned Miss California is determined to keep stoking the fires of her bullshit celebrity status since she spoke out against same-sex marriage during this year’s Miss U.S.A. Pageant. I should say right off the bat that I support same-sex marriages. We are all equal…

My So Called Christ

On Nov. 1, I turned 33. And you probably didn’t even send a card or call. Asshole. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to snap at you. It’s just the older I get, the crankier I get around my birthday. This year has been especially dreadful. I keep hearing that this…

The Road to Success

Hello, college students. I was reading over the column I wrote around this time last year, and I apologize to any of you who may have read it (and if you have, and you’re still picking up Submerge on a regular basis, it’s nice to see you again). I didn’t…

The Day the Hammer Came Down

For some of you, it was a typical Thursday in Sacramento: dry, with that hot wind that is neither welcome nor refreshing. And while it was that, for some of us, it was something to remember. For some of us, that Thursday was different. That Thursday, Submerge hooked it up…

Snow White, Blood Red

There are plenty of movies that speak to the human soul. They dig deep and teach you a little something about the world around you and yourself. On the other hand, there are movies like Dead Snow, which only teach you what your guts might look like if they were…

Self-Help Through Hate

I’ve been commuting semi-regularly for the past few weeks. All that freeway time hasn’t exactly made me appreciative of my fellow man. I might have gone on a rampage if I had remembered to bring my gat; but alas, Bam-Bam was resting snuggly under my pillow at home. Stuck in…
