Where's me Skinema!!

As you may or may not know, I'm a total biter for Vice Magazine, for once the best things in life are free, all it costs is a bit of embarrassment as I wander into shops like Dogfish and Cult (a typo surely?) and pretend to be looking at shite clothes I neither like nor could ever afford before nabbing two copies of each issue of Vice, I keep one in mint condition and put the other in the bog, in ubernerd stylee. As I sleep, never six inches from my demeanted noggin is Vice: Dos and Don'ts and Vice: The Vice Guide to Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll for months now I have been attempting to complete a trinity of perversion with the holy grail of Vice books, Chris Nieratko's tome Skinema, a collection fo his ostensible porn reviews. Oh here's some alternative covers. I miss those tales of coloring in your lad green and pretending to be the Hulk or ringing numbers found on strip joint dollar bills.

I ordered this book off amazon in late February for an early May release date now those fecks are telling me it's not out until July 7-10, what! do books have different regions now aswell, like we have region 2 eyes and can't read a region 1 book till they add all the u's in humor and stuff? this Nieratko-famine is really pissing me off.

I first encountered the Hunter S. Thompson of porn reviews in Bizarre magazine, which like the total biter I am have bought from issue one, until recently, it's too expensive and there too many crappy adds and Vice is free but I digress. Some of Nieratko's Bizarre articles are here and his most recent Vice Skinema column is here. Some day my skinema will come!
