CANADA - TUNE YOUR IDIOT BOX TO IFC
Hey Canucks, did you check out our latest offering to CNN.com? It’s the Vice Guide to Film episode where Shane delves into the world of Mexican Narco Cinema. It’s pretty great, if we do say so ourselves. If you want to see the rest of it then tune in to IFC Canada this Friday at 9 & 9:30 PM EST to see how it all ends. In fact, you should tune in every Friday at starting at 9pm for the other...
SCRUB ‘N TUG
Craigslist is the internet dumping ground for everything from soiled mattresses to BMWs. Their erotic services section has been known to help young, reasonably attractive people out when they are in a financial pinch. Usually both parties walk away paid or laid and unscathed, except for that whole Philip Markoff thing…Anyway, I spoke to a young entrepreneur who offers nude services online, such...
THE INTERNET IS RAISING PERVERTS
Antonio Campos’ short film Buy It Now is an unsettlingly convincing video diary about a 16-year-old girl who sells her virginity on eBay. But Campos’ creepily naturalistic style really came into its own for his first full-length film. Afterschool, which again explores how the internet is screwing up today’s teens, is a stiflingly intense study of an alienated kid obsessed with watching porn and...
MY VILLAGE THREW ME AN INDIAN GOAT PARTY
Most Westerners in India think they’ve had the full experience if they’ve drank a beer at Leopold’s, done some Bollywood extra work, and taken a walk around the Taj Mahal. Some may even share a chillum with a baba, get psychoanalyzed by a naked guru, or bathe in the Ganges. I on the other hand had the privilege of seeing a stressed-out goat slowly putting two and two together as it watched...
WHAT MAKES A FART
Did you know that no two farts are exactly alike? It’s true. Farts are sort of like snowflakes in that regard. Little, invisible, smelly, snowflakes. While everybody past the age of 10 is well-versed in the manifold variety of farts and their associated sounds and smells and sensations and sobriquets, precious few of us know anything at all about the sources of their great diversity. Can you,...
PENILE ZIPPER ENTRAPMENT
Good news for any guy who’s ever got his weenis caught in his zipper. After fiddling around with the trapped penises of three consecutive boys aged 5-7, Dr Satish Chandra Mishra was able to perfect a simple, safe, quick, and painless method of extricating your twisted member from your pant-front without having to infiltrate your prepuce with 2% lignocain. Huzzah!
MEET THE NIERATKOS - DEADBEAT DADS NEED LOVE TOO
Coming from a fatherless home, I could never imagine a day when I could sympathize with a deadbeat dad and yet here I am, a father myself, and it has become abundantly clear why men walk out on their families. And it has nothing to do with the weight of the responsilbilty of becoming a parent. MORE!
NIGHT TERRORS ARE THE WORST
I don’t know about you, but for me, sleep is something of a refuge. Dreams, epic adventures, and wombish nothingness. For my bud Mike Bremner, sleep is something he succumbs to and endures. He has Night Terrors.Pavor Nocturnus has been around for thousands of years. In the dark ages, Europeans believed it was caused by succubi; in more recent times, aliens. The technical, non-made-up, disorder...
My friend Hannah grew up in Iqaluit – the capital of Nunavut – from the ages of 13-18. The insane shit she was forced to deal with on a daily basis make most teenage problems like zits and first crushes look like a joke (which they are). You think you had it rough because the bus ride downtown was 45 minutes long, or because you always get carded at the depanneur (that’s a corner store to you...
OMAR AND TERRY
You may have seen this on Terry’s blog, but if not here’s a little video from his Shakespearean shoot with Michael Kenneth Williams from the Fashion Issue. Evidently in his vision of The Tempest, Caliban’s really into M.O.P. Oh, contemporary theater. You so crazy. MORE!
Holiday in North Korea
Hey, remember North Korea? Hahaha, just kidding. [goofy voice] “Remember North Korea?” Anyhew, we had such a blast there making The Vice Guide to North Korea that we thought we’d give one of you guys the chance to follow in our terrified footsteps. MORE
