About this book

What started out as a few Montreal drug addicts scamming welfare make-work programs back in 1994 has become a global empire of hedonism known simply as VICE. From a 16-page newspaper about punk bands and violence to stores, a clothing line, VICE Films, VICE TV, VICE Records, viceland.com, etc., VICE has become much more than a way for three guys to get laid. It's become a lifestyle, a degrading and disgusting lifestyle of sex and drugs and rock and roll and death. This book is a collection of the irreverent, hilarious and downright scary gonzo journalism that brought three losers from the crack houses of Le Plateau to the deluxe apartments of Manhattan.

This book "literally" changed my whole perspective on people life and society. The Most Important Collection of Writings I've Ever Read and recommend anybody and everybody to read.

I've said before that Vice at this point has been so cool for so long that it's almost no longer cool to admit to liking it. But as I have also said before, I. Don't. Fucking. Care. Vice is sheer and utter genius. There is no amount of irony or hipsterism or band-wagonry that could make me stop loving it. So after the DOs and DON'Ts book, I just had to put this back in the bathroom. And how-lee shit, I forgot how mind-bogglingly incredible it is. After an interview with the three of them at the beginning, which reminds you just how scummy, scuzzy, drug-addled, and amazing they all are, we are right into "The Vice Guide to Eating Out." (No, kids, we're not talking about going to restaurants.) I realize I may be hazing into flaggable territory here (although I think it would be wrong to talk about Vice without getting filthy), but the advice given is so good, so clever, so dirtily, dirtily brilliant.... well, let's just say it kinda makes me want to find a lady to try it out on. I will try not to detail every single article as I go through this masterpiece, but c'mon. The next one is "The Vice Guide to Sucking..." well, you know.

Hilarious.

tons of small articles, fillers, and tid-bits. the greatest of "VICE," taken from years of hard work. Some of the language and views i could do without, but that's whats great about VICE: they don't censor anyone. In fact, i don't even think they edit anyone. Full of cliche's and wacky ass pictures, this book is perfect for long trips.A few examples of what you'll find in here:1) Vice guide to eating pussy [or the the Vice guide to sucking cock!]2) Vice interview with a fat guy3) Why interviews with musicians suck4) What Ever Happened To [lunatic Norwegian death metal rockers like Maniac]5) Vice guide of DOs and DONTs, in fashion, including the ever-so popular right ball hanging out the daisy-dukes. That's right. This book has all of it. Even some of if you don't want.h

I've never been a fan of decadence-for-hipness'-sake, but the A&E sections of the local free papers aren't much less obnoxious, and the Vice pieces that aren't so much about self-glorification (or sloppy attempts at tastemaking) are often wonderfully random and/or laugh-out-loud funny. I think the best thing in here is at the very end of the book: scathingly honest student evaluations purportedly written by a veteran sixth-grade teacher at his wits' end.

humorus dick and fart lit. literally.

K-tron

one of the funniest manuals about life ever. Learn sex tricks, and what drugs do to you. There is so much to be read and learned and laughed at. Give it a whirl!

Shawn

Great bathroom read.

matt

A lot of fun.

Alexandra Sullivan

Vice magazine has been ruining my life for years. This book sums up why I'm glad it did. Hedonism and nihilism in perfect harmony. Yes, it might be offensive, sexist, and racist at times, but their intent is in the right place- to break every taboo and barrier that exists. Their twitter describes Vice as the "all-powerful, all-consuming whore of Babylon" and I say keep it coming. If you're new to the "being cool" game, this might help.

hmmm

Evan

One of the best gifts I've ever been given.
