So every time I put out a new Leviathan, which isn’t that often, I always seem to neglect my SLUG writing duties. Leviathan #9 drops this month and my lack of focus is no different. So I was thinking … The last Leviathan was mostly stuff that I wrote for SLUG that didn’t make it in.

It’s a true story about the time I met my favorite skater, Eric Koston. … read more

Very rarely does SLUG give me a writing assignment. In case you were wondering about my whole SLUG article process, the recipe is as follows: SLUG asks me what I want to write about. I tell them. Then they have someone draw a cool picture that correlates with my soapbox, or I use a shitty picture that I have lying around. … read more

My journey to the heart of the local Salt Lake Juggalo scene began with a phone call and ended with a bottle of Rock ‘n Rye flavored Faygo.

I’ll just say it’s more of a venue than a bar, gets loud and sweaty onthe weekends, and has some of the fastest bartenders in the west. If youorder a Kamikaze there, the barkeep is done making it by the time youfinish saying the word “Kamikaze.” … read more

Now that I’m older, my sisters are all married and have turned themselves into baby-spewing vending machines. They are spitting live fetuses out faster than machine gun bullets. And every time a new baby enters the world, they gotta bless it and I’m obligated to go to church for these events. … read more

I’ve been thinking about buying a gun lately. In these uncertain economic times, it seems like a rational decision. I guess crime is on the rise because of the recession, and protecting my assets with a new set of hollow points made sense, until I thought about it more. … read more
