Dear Superchief: On a warm summer night, a cab driver asked to suck on my feet in exchange for a free ride.

Being from the Bronx, I was pretty used to getting hollered at and honked at by cabs who want to “take me home”, so when the Indian driver softly said, “Need a cab sweetie? I take you.” I told him I had no money to take a cab and continued walking until he asked the strangest question I have ever heard come out of a cab driver’s mouth: “Do you have nice feet?”

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: I Dipped My Toes Into the Vast Ocean That Is the American Sperm Industry

And I wanted to be the sperm donor par excellence: I already looked into buying a gym membership, quitting smoking, and just doing everything I can to make my body into a gamete factory for all the single career women in the world to benefit from.

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: David Liebe Hart Crashed on my Couch

On one side was one of his signature drawings… on the other side however… were his phone number, email address, and the message, “Hi you could be my girlfriend come true; I am a single gentleman interested in dating a beautiful woman such as you!”

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: Sorry I Missed Your Weekly BBQ.

I walked back to my friend’s birthday party, where I was greeted with a chorus of “what-the-fuck”s. I proceeded to explain, some people high-fived me, others turned away when I tried to say hello. This is what I recalled…

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: I Did Bath Salts and Didn’t Crave Flesh Once

personal loans online In my cousin S’s Brezhnev-era dorm room this summer, we found ourselves underwhelmed by Porter, his esoteric cat who enjoys ambient drone music much more than I do, and set out craving adventure or attention or what have you. Walking among decaying “blok” apartment buildings, we reached a gas station and went […]

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: I Almost Got Sent to Gay Camp, Again!

Our friend, whose name will remain anonymous, has terrible parents. They told him that they were taking him on a cruise, and instead forcibly took him to a gay reform camp in Virginia. Kidnapping your gay kids and sending them to gay reform camp is perfectly legal in America, as highlighted in the documentary Kidnapped for Christ. Below is the story in his words, from getting his hopes up for a cruise to the Bahamas, escaping gay camp in Virginia, and escaping back to New York. Jesus Christ, America.

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: I Almost Died This Weekend When My Car Exploded

(Photo Credit: Tod Seelie) I’ve learned something important about myself this weekend.  I officially have no regard for my physical well-being whatsoever.  I’ve put my life at risk on consecutive weekends (blacking out and ending up with broken bones, playing frogger on Houston Street, jumping off balconies, etc).  It’s easier to laugh about everything than […]

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: Nothing Says “Party” Like Pee Pee

Dear Superchief, Is it weird that the proudest moment in my life revolved around piss? I don’t think so. And if you knew me, you wouldn’t either. I’ve peed on many things in my life; door handles, the inside of sneakers, garbage pails, doorknobs, toilet tanks, my girlfriend while we’re in the shower (she doesn’t […]

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: I got arrested at the #D17 Re-occupation (Photos)

Hey Superchief, so this is what happened to me on December 17, Occupy Wall Street’s “Occupation 2.0″ to mark the 3-month anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. It all started down at Duarte Park, with faith leaders from all over gathering and holding a General Assembly. They were discussing an empty lot. After the GA I […]

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: Nudity, Bad; Prostitution, Fine

Dear Superchief, I go to the south quite often. I don’t really go to strip clubs much though. But sometimes life throws you a curve ball. Last year, a bunch of people decided to go to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby. I, personally, don’t give a shit about the Kentucky Derby, but I’m never one […]

DEAR SUPERCHIEF: I Casually Throw Up Blood And Think Nothing Of It. (Am I Dying?)

Dear Superchief, I woke up last Saturday laying on a loveseat, tangled in a fitted bedsheet.  My neck was wrecked, my arms sore as fuck, and I was almost positive my throat was bleeding.  I ripped the sheet off, and looked down at my shirt, it was covered in blood spray.  Confused, I tried to […]

A GLOBAL PEACEFUL CHANGE. I thought it would be appropriate to send SUPERCHIEF pictures of the 15M- Peaceful Movement in Madrid, I took them. They show how people got together with a common feeling about how to make changes. That if you really want to, and if you have the courage to make that change, […]

FIGHT CLUB: THE BEST OF FRIDAY NIGHT THROWDOWN

Following the news of Throwdown’s return at SXSW this year with a Texas vs. NYC event, it seems only appropriate to take a look back at the history of Friday Night Throwdown, and the coverage we’ve had of it here on Superchief over the years. For the uninitiated; Friday Night Throwdown wasn’t just NYC’s best underground boxing event, it was NYC’s best underground party.

TEXAS VS. NYC: THROWDOWN RETURNS AT SXSW THIS YEAR

The organization that brought Ford models, Marines and Bloods together for New York’s best underground party is bringing their business to Austin, and bringing with them a Texas vs. NYC event…and Superchief will be covering the whole thing, from start to finish.

HIGH ON HUNGER: JANE CHARDIET

“High on Hunger” is Jane Chardiet’s new zine, featuring personal essay, photography and interviews with 12 artists, including some of our favorites, about their 2013 and their artistic goals in the new year, along with photographs of each licking fire. It’s good stuff, so I asked Jane about her 2013, because turnabout’s fair play and that’s how the game works.

12 O’ CLOCK BOYS (BALTIMORE STREETBIKE REALNESS)

Whatever your city is doing, what the homies out in B-More are doing is 10x as crazy. 12 O’ Clock Boys is one of the hardest movies we’ve seen in a long time, hands down, exploring a city and a culture that just doesn’t give a fuck (and featuring Baltimore himies like Schwarz on the soundtrack) the film gets more done in it’s 75 minutes than most documentaries do in twice that.

ALWAYS KEEP THE CAMERA RUNNING: MAKS SUSKI’S VIDEOS OF THE NYC MUSIC SCENE

Maks Suski has been hard at work documenting live music in NYC on video for the last 4 years; we asked him to compile a list of some of his favorite videos that he’s shot, a list that includes Japanther, Action Bronson, Death Grips, Culo, Crystal Castles, Limp Wrist, Black Pus and more.

THERE IS A TINY LEG A QUARTER OF AN INCH BELOW YOUR TENTH RIB.

“Although Tiny Leg’s sound owes much of it’s inspiration to the Oakland glucose and thumbtrack scenes of the mid-nineties, and has been called by HotFridge magazine ‘a thumbcore homage to the sound of Velvet Curtis and Taco’ and ‘a slick-stale, neo-juicy, post-hipster alchemy, somewhere in between gluke-wave and puke-base’ by PeckerwoodsToday, those sentences are too journalistic and not souague enough, if one may permit my french.”

STACY KRANITZ’S SKATOPIA (50+ Photos From a Burnout’s Paradise)

Photographer Stacy Kranitz recently journeyed to Skatopia, a famed 88 acre skate park/commune in Ohio which was founded in 1995, documented in the 2010 film of the same name, and once described by writer Kevin Duffel as “a demented mess that meets halfway between an anarchistic Mad Maxian Thunderdome and a utopian skateboard society.” Goddamn if it isn’t one of the best things we’ve ever seen.
