SALT Weekly: A bi(?) monthly alternative

Exploit the cavernous niche vacated locally by those that are seeking more MOR (middle-of-the-road) BS (yep) fluff click-bait. Not afraid to throw punches but not petty (when to allow nom-de-plumes vis-a-vis nom-de-guerres when the casus belli IS the M.O.?). Tough question when you’re being asked to fork it over, but you really have to spoonfeed.

Combining critical with the satirical, visual and literary arts, reviews, write-ups, intelligent discourse.

We're the salt in the uninformed wound, curing the dead meat, lining the sweet wet rim for your total palate pleasure.


In a town where conspicuous consumption and conspicuous creativity often overlap, we invite the community to help create its own content. Submissions  through the contact page are open for (A)political short-form, illustrations, original art, literary explorations (in short story, poetry, short prose, longer work could potentially be serialized), reviews, criticism, theoretical and ethical discussion, and doodles.

Find us going overboard in the underground.
