The editorial staff here at Über would like to take this opportunity to apologize to you, our loyal reader of 5, possibly 7 days if you went back and reread something over the weekend, for the lack of a new piece on this fine fine Memorial Day.
We've got lots of excuses, mostly centering around the continued wild sexual escapades of our writers, and also alcohol. We will spare you the intimate details, as long ago, we realized that nobody wants to read about sex and booze on the internet.
Instead, we will relate to you the wonderful plan we had for you today, which, as previously stated, we ended up forgetting.
We are a daily web "zine," and as such, deliver content on every single week day. There are not very many web "zines" around anymore, or at least not very many non-commercial "zines" and that means when the gov't sleeps, so does internet content.
Aha! we thought. We will post something new, something new and filled with goodness for our readers to "read" while they are sitting at home with nothing to do, as all Right Minded Americans do on federal holidays such as today. And by doing this, we will further endear ourselves to the masses. Nothing new to read at Suck, nothing to read at Salon, etc, etc, etc, AHA! But something new at my favorite Pre-IPO Web Content Portal, Über!
Too bad we didn't come through.
Please believe us when we say that we are terribly sorry for disappointing you, and that one of our staff members, probably Adam, will be terminated for this offense.
