When Jesse Pearson saw the photo of the Brazilian model’s rear, he knew it would have to go on the cover.
“It was like god pointed his finger at me and told me to do it,” said Mr. Pearson, the editor of Vice. The magazine just put out The Brazilian Issue, which features a Read More
We reached hipster grifter Kari Ferrell’s Salt Lake City bail-bond agent—who has been working on the Kari Ferrell, a.k.a. the Hipster Grifter, case since last June—this afternoon, and agreed to grant anonymity because the agent had safety concerns (bail-bond agents are not exactly popular with a certain demographic that is demonstrably prone to crime, Read More
It’s likely that when Kari Ferrell walked into the Vice magazine offices in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, last month to interview for an administrative assistant job, they thought they’d hit the jackpot.

This week, England’s Independent gave over the cover of its weekend magazine to an article about the U.K. edition of Brooklyn’s Vice magazine. (We learned of the story from the magazine’s blog, which helpfully points out how trite the headline attached to the story is.)
Here’s how U.K. editor Andy Capper describes the Read More

It’s not much, but it will encourage your natural curiosity and soften the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune by directing you to the elements of Williamsburg life that will be the most comfortable to you and that have been developed Read More
