The VBS Show
The VBS Show takes you to the gnarliest corners of the uncharted world -- the places most reporters are too scared or too responsible to go -- to uncover stories so unbelievable, they'll make your imagination cry. Check back regularly to take point-blank bullets to the gut, run drugs in the sewers of Bogota and get closer than you ever thought possible to Caribbean mules. In case you're new, VBS.TV is the online equivalent of VICE Magazine, the VOICE of the underground and the unmentionable. Crack CNN. Among its regular shows are "Balls Out," "Practice Space," "Epicly Later'd," "Powder Rails," "The VICE Guide," "Thumbs Up" and a wide variety of renegade news shows that make the everyday "cutting edge" look like a butter knife. A wooden one. In VBS' "Balls Out," correspondent Thomas Morton (aka "Baby Balls") is sent into modern day lions' dens to pose as, among other things, a leather daddy, an ultimate fighter and an underground Bogotan drug-runner. Life could be a lot easier. Ryan Duffy is another VBS regular, guiding investigative tours of everything from bullet-proof couture factories to The Rapture's practice space (on, you guessed it, "Practice Space"). "Epicly Later'd" is a fly-on-the-wall peek into the wild and often bloody lives of professional skateboarders. "Powder Rails" follows snowboarders from lip to lip of impossible half-pipes, while "Thumbs Up" hitchhikes across the warmer stretches of the United States with visual artist, David Choe. And that's just the terrified polar bear balancing on the tip of the melting iceberg. Although only in its first year of production, The VBS Show has already pulled the curtain on enough shocking news cover-ups, underground subcultures and filthy habits to un-glue Geraldo's fake mustache. This abridged version of the VICE-run circus brings you bite-sized encapsulations of all the best of VBS.TV. Don't miss a second. What you learn may very well save your life, even if it's only your social life.
