• Bring It on Home

    This colossal exposé on the long-awaited second season of Eastbound and Down is going to appear in our October Larfs Issue, but we wanted to give you the chance to look at it now because we thought you'd like that. Also the new season starts this Sunday and it'd be prett…

  • Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia

    Ivory Wave

    "Once you have experienced ivory wave bath salts you will hoe to apply in the future."

  • Die, Die, My Darling

    Well, we were looking for proof of bodysnatching because we’d heard rumours of a black market trade in stolen corpses to meet the demand from the Chinese tradition of “ghost weddings," which are like arranged marriages for the deceased.

  • Vice Photo Expo L.A.

    Every year, VICE puts on a photo show at the Scion gallery in L.A. This year's show was curated by Jonnie Craig, who dug out 60 works by 18 of our favourite photographers from all corners of the world. The collective

  • Hammer Time, All the Time

    I spent a week in the Sunshine State, sitting in an enormous American car next to an ex-marine called Art Hammer as he took me on a tour of sex hotels, bad restaurants and beach towns that would really benefit from a 12-foot rise in sea level.

  • Uh Oh, It’s Him Again

    Gaspar and I met for breakfast in Soho and he told me he hadn't had any sleep because he'd got into a fight the night before. He didn't go into the details, and tried to wake himself up with a plate of fruit.

    Big Bob Morris is a long-time associate of Vice and well-known London raconteur and sportsman. Recently he showed us this huge archive of east London mod photographs. We used one of them by the table of contents in last month’s Anti-Music Issue, but didn’t have space

  • Literary

    WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? THE ESSENTIAL DAVID SHRIGLEY. Who doesn't like David Shrigley? That's right, no one. I am reliably informed that even Nan Goldin owns a set of his “cocaine” and “heroin” salt and pepper pots, so there you go. We haven’t c…

  • We Used to Be Like Brothers...

    To some, Shawn Brown is a legend of hardcore. A one-off. A voice who injected real anger and passion into a genre renowned for crybabies and tough-guy posers. As the original vocalist in Dag Nasty he helped Brian Baker exorcise his post-Minor Threat demons before getting unceremo…

  • Ooh! Think Twice

    A group of people called Sock Mob has been organising guided homelessness-themed tours of Shoreditch in east London led by the real-life homeless. I’m not sure if it’s to raise awareness or money or whatever, but I decided to go along.

  • Shot By Kern's European Vacation

    Last summer, Richard Kern came to Europe and did a tour of sorts for his popular VBS show, Shot by Kern. Along with director Jim Demuth and myself, Kern visited London, Barcelona, Milan, Berlin, Antwerp and Paris

  • When Jamie Met Jack

    There are lots of good stories about Jack Bond. There’s the one with the armed helicopter that chased him across an Italian mountainside, there’s the one about getting sacked from Points of View, and the one about doing LSD on television.

  • New Jersey Fashion Week

    In the past year or so my home state of New Jersey has become a punchline for reality TV.

  • Socialist Child Beauty Parlour

    German-Norwegian photojournalist couple Ben Speck and Karin Ananiassen recently spent ten days depicting one of Venezuela's most prestigious beauty academies, the castings, and the wildly popular TV-broadcasted "Miss" competitions.

  • Et Spiritus Sancti

    On a recent trip to predominantly Muslim Chechnya, photojournalist Olga Kravets found an Islamic medical centre in Grozny where women suspected to be possessed by the devil go through a violent procedure to "get rid of their demons".

  • Karen Russell Interviewed By Rivka Galchen

    If ever there was someone whom I’d be happy to see at my own funeral—meaning I guess that I wouldn’t really mind that it was my funeral—it would be Karen Russell, or Karen’s prose.

  • Lisa

    "Come on,” Teryn whispered. She had opened my window from the outside, and was on her hands and knees. I had fallen asleep with a book on my chest. “Hurry. If Mom and Dad catch you we’re both dead.”

  • Paul Virilio

    Cultural theorist Paul Virilio has been repeating essentially the same thing over and over for the past 30 years. Maybe it’s time for everybody to start listening to him.

  • The Woman Who Fell to Earth

    Juliane Koepcke was born a German national in Lima, Peru, in 1954, the daughter of a world-renowned zoologist (Hans-Wilhelm) and an equally revered ornithologist (Maria).

  • Doomsday Scenarios, Considered

    Mark Reid is senior radio astronomer at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

  • Archival Catastrophes

    In my day job, I work as an archival-image researcher. I always keep an eye out for things that I think typify the American experience, like banjo players, crazy preachers, hobos, and disasters.

  • The Children Of Kampiringisa

    Kampiringisa, Uganda’s only juvenile-detention facility, is not only a prison; it also doubles as temporary housing for Uganda’s hundreds of homeless minors.

  • Powers Of Ten

    Nature swallowing us up whole.

  • Sisters of Mercy and the Temple of Love

    Mala and Belavva are best friends and members of an ancient Hindu cult of prostitution.

  • Records

    As the most revolutionary MC of the last 15 years, you'd expect Lil B to divide rap fans. Just like the purists who refuse to acknowledge anything written after the golden age, you can bet there will be folks who never touch anything past 2010 (or, more realistically, 2013).

  • Employees Of The Month

    Jim Shepard is to blame for six novels and four story collections, including You Think That’s Bad, coming out in March 2011 from Knopf.

  • Skinema

    The Mommy X-Perience

    Strange things happen to a woman’s vagina after a human slides out of it, aside from the obvious stretching and tearing.

  • End Permian Extinction

    Charles Darwin didn’t believe in catastrophe. The whole idea struck him as implausible, a product of the sort of antiquated thinking that mixed science and religion, Noah’s flood and the ice ages.

  • Letter From The Guest Editor

    You can make a pretty good argument that if you’re an apocalyptic you’re both fucked up and plugged into the zeitgeist. I was an apocalyptic kind of guy before I even understood what the word meant.
