The FT’s lunch with Shane Smith

by | February 1st, 2013 | 06:52 am

Many of you have expressed enjoyment in some of the links we have posted to Vice Media reports on North Korea, including the logging camp adventure and the trip to the film studio.  As part of its weekly “Lunch with the FT” series, the paper recently sat down with Vice founder Shane Smith (you may remember him as the burly guy wandering around the logging camps with the Russian Buford Pusser in tow).  Of course we do not endorse all of the behaviors described in the article, but if you want to hear his “howling rendition” of “Anarchy in the UK” go to the 17 minute mark of the video below. And again, we apologize for the commercial at the beginning.
