What I’m Watching Right Now: VBS.tv & Thoughts on American Apparel
This fell off my radar for a while, but I wanted to mention that there are some really interesting videos on VBS.tv.
My friend Bashira just clued me into their “Mexican Month” programming. Here is a video from their “Vice Guide to Sex” series about Casa Xochiquetzal, a residential facility in one of Mexico Cityâ€™s shadiest neighborhoods that caters exclusively to the areaâ€™s elderly sex workers.
VBS.tv is an online broadcast network helmed by Academy Award-nominated director Spike Jonze and owned by Vice. Normally I can’t stand most magazine-related online channels (always seems like so much shameless self promotion), but what I have seen so far on VBS.tv is always eclectic and filled with possibility. Vice also owns a retail clothing chain and record label.
