The Real Lives Of Real Life Sex Workers (Documentary)

Well done and done in a respectful way. Sometimes investigative journalists embed with subjects and get overly intrusive without at least building with them, ‘earning’ the right to pry, so to speak. But VICE always seems to get it right. Probably why they consistently turn out great documentary content.

Photographer Lindsay Irene travels to Toronto to shoot with a variety of sex workers in their homes with the goal of increasing the understanding of who they are.

Miami’s Luxury Car Hustle: Hey Player, You Can Rent ‘That Life’ For A While (Documentary)

Some say, “Fake it ’til you make it.” Then others may ask, “Why not put that money into actually making it?” Well, the guys running the luxury rental biz seem to actually be making it (money) from those who rent fancy cars to ‘fake it.’

“The car business, in general, is a tough business. The car rental business, even more so. Anybody who finds out they can make money and drive a Ferrari, I mean, they’re diving in head first,” says Matt Cruz, owner of MVP Exotic Rentals, a legitimate luxury car rental business based in Miami. But when everybody wants to be a celebrity, how to you tell the difference between faking it and making it? The game is finesse, and with the allure of getting behind the wheel of the world’s most expensive cars, who wouldn’t want to play? In a world where likes and fame can be bought and the filtered facade of Instagram reigns supreme, VICE meets some of the legit — and the not-so-legit — players that cater luxury car rentals to the biggest rappers, athletes, and celebrities of the moment.

The Miami Style Gods Speak On The Rush And The Danger Of Doing Street Grafitti In Miami (Documentary)

Wow. Right from the start, the dude calls his graf ‘vandalism’… NOT art. But still seems driven about it. Real out there in the streets about the spray game; folks can get shot for real (or worse). VICE investigates.

All across Miami, you’ll find countless tags done by MSG—the Miami Style Gods, a graffiti crew that’s been around since the early 90s. And two decades later, they’re still bombing as many walls, highway signs, bridges, billboards, and abandoned buildings as they can find.

VICE met up with members of the crew—who believe their trade is vandalism, not art—to find out why they’re so dedicated to a trade that makes no money and is often dangerous, from altercations with the cops to dangling over busy highways.

And this is about more than graf, though that is life to these guys; it’s life in the streets.

Final Season For Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” (Trailer)

Somewhere between numbing pain caused by the loss of Sean Price and the recent demise of Mac Miller lies the feeling of continued mourning for late travel & food enthusiast Anthony Bourdain. Got his final season’s trailer here, featuring his voice. Might wanna grab a tissue and some water before you press play. Things might get emotional hearing his voice one more time…

(Comedian W. Kamau Bell’s comments really bring it home, too.)

Food: Homegrown Tomatoes Taste Better (Video)

My Dad was a sharecropper through late his preteen years before his family moved to Tuskegee. The farmer in him meant we would have a pretty big garden every year, overflowing with tomatoes. They were not heirloom tomatoes like these, but those ‘maters did taste different. Guess that is no surprise. Homegrown vs. storebought, you know… It’s just that this video gives a ‘fullness’ to the argument that I cosign. Check it out.

Ever wonder why homegrown tomatoes taste so much better than ones you buy in a store? Renowned seed saver and farmer John Coykendall hits it out of the park with this explanation – and shows how heirloom veggies, like tomatoes, link us to our ancestors!

Black Thought Really Wants You To ‘Visit Philadelphia’ (Video)

The City Of Brotherly Love’s own, Tarik “Black Thought” Trotter definitely has Roots (had to do it) in the hometown, so there is a bias. But that does not mean the case he makes in this ‘Visit Philadelphia’ series, coaxing all to come, is not valid. You already know about the cheesesteaks and global eats from an earlier post (here), but watch up (above, continuing after the jump) and see more proof!

Soaring Sex Toy Sales In South Korea (Documentary)

Hmm. Surprising that this is just starting to blow up as an industry over there. Sex and all things naughty-naughty sell and sell well. The level of regulation and societal taboo to counter it must have been tremendously stifling. Still likely is, but looks like things are loosening up (insert your own ‘dirty jokes’ here).

Sex toy stores are opening up all over South Korea and customers have been flocking to them. In the past, the few adult stores that existed were hidden behind tinted glass and filled with dirty or outdated toys. Now times are changing and sex is becoming more visible to the mainstream.

But more access to sex toys doesn’t negate South Korea’s many sexual taboos and the lack of sex education and industry regulation.

Lifestyle: You’re In Los Angeles. You’re High. What Do You Do Next? (Video)

A weed travel show. Excellent idea! And an appropriately laid-back episode to boot.

On VICE’s weed travel show ‘BLUNT REVIEWS,’ we trek to places where weed is legal to review things a cannabis-consuming tourist can do while they’re stoned. On this episode, VICE’s Darlene Demorizi spent a day getting blazed in Los Angeles, where she cured her munchies at Pink’s Hot Dogs, a historic restaurant that tops franks with guacamole and nacho cheese. Then she unwound at Lit Yoga, a THC-friendly studio, and stopped by Puff Pass & Paint to make a little art over a glass of CBD-infused wine.
