ive never read it.
what is it?
for full time stoners and Camden Town arseholes
Does have some good articles and that Hot or Not thing
The Social Board, it's that way
it's a free magazine you pick up from bars/clubs around shoreditch. It has articles on music, fashion, art and alternative culture. Every issue has a theme ("The Mexico Issue" "The Rave Issue") What people don't like (and some like) about it is that it is very very sceney. the writers make themselves comes across as more important than what they're writing about sometimes. Imagine a magazine written by a bunch of trendy scenesters on cocaine...well that's Vice.
If you don't take it too seriously and don't let yourself get wound up by it then it can be quite a funny read whilst on the bus or tube.
(and admittedly fuck loads of what was essentially anorexia porn masquerading as fashion photography)
The article on Edwyn Collins' drawings of birds and how the gradual improvements in the drawings marked his recovery was really interesting.
or this ironically...
btw, this is a DiS anthem
I thought more people might be talking about it...
I've never read Vice Magazine.
but think Sugar Ape mostly
I like their parties as well.
Current issue has lots of short stories (including a FUCKING GREAT one by Sam McPheeters) in it, as well as some really interesting interviews (I thought the one with Max Brooks was fascinating).
Gets lots of hate for looking / being overtly trendy, but its more often than not a good read. Like I say, it tends to have very good music coverage
Shit, need to pick the new issue up.
read his story whilst eating my breakfast this morning, nearly choked on my shredded wheat. Absolutely hilarious. His photo blog is a thing of wonder too
if if were still around.
Scratch that. It's perhaps more like Sleazenation was. No. It's what Sky would have become. Oh, I dunno.
A bit scene-y, but Vice+pinch of salt = success. And it's free, to boot.
i miss sleazenation, now there was a magazine
we'll ever see.
i think it's easier to relate to the reporters cuz they seem more human, and i think interviewees feel the same, which comes across really well, and obviously great photos.
don't take it completely seriously and it's a fine mag indeed, chock full of great ideas.
it's a little fickle but andy crapper is twisted bratty genius.
