The Best of VICE This Week
Starting today, we'll be compiling a roundup of all the best stuff we've published each week. This way, you'll have an easy encyclopaedia of amazing stuff to keep you occupied every Friday afternoon while you should be doing some work.
Travelling to Jamaica to check out Caribbean Fashion Week, Charlet has a fangirl moment when Elephant Man talks to her about his fashionable shoes and a sadgirl moment when Beenie Man randomly turns up at a rave to tell everyone his dad just died. She also investigates the trend for skin bleaching and eating chicken feed to make your butt and boobs bigger.
My friend Stephan spent a few weeks on a boat travelling through Somalian waters, drinking vodka with Russian special forces and firing rocket-propelled grenades and AKs at pirates.
Hunter Moore started that website IsAnyoneUp.com, where jilted bros send in naked photos of their exes and Hunter took the piss out of them to make everybody feel better (bar the ex). He told us that girls fly to his house to have sex with him so that he'll write a humiliating story about them and they'll get more Twitter followers.
We made a documentary about the machismo-sodden, occasionally depressing, but mostly hilarious British wrestling scene and interviewed the film's director to get you all as excited as we are about its release.
For too long now, ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair has avoided categorisation, confusing us with his simultaneous love for twangy, liberal Brit-pop and passion for invading countries in the Middle East without any justifiable reason. This article aims to solve a question the nation has been asking ever since he came into power: Is Tony Blair just a normal, sweaty bloke? Or a calculating, careerist, international war criminal?
We covered this girl's face in cheap make-up, i.e. food, and sent her out into the street.
Mitt Romney and Barack Obama had their first televised debate. Romney gazed lovingly at Obama, Obama failed to say anything of much worth. Romney won, but fired Big Bird in the process.
Ed Miliband's newest plan to win over the nation is to tout himself as an "ordinary geek". The only problem with that is he now comes across as the kind of guy who'd say something like "No thanks, I don't want to kill myself" if you offered him a toke on a joint.
The best way to "melt a man's heart" is supposedly to act like a stupid child.
Reader, make sure you're sitting down. Please. I have some terrible news to break to you. The gender known as "men" is dead.
If you're Taiwanese and you wanna have a good time in heaven, you gotta get a lady to strip naked at your funeral.
We met some of One Direction's fans and it turns out they're pretty naive. Which is fine. Because they're children.
