Though Skinema "reviews" over 150 pornos, Nieratko hardly ever mentions them, focusing instead on the pill-popping exploits that he's documented unapologetically over the past seven years in his column for Vice Magazine—much to his editors chagrin. As Johnny Knoxville so succinctly put it, Nieratko is an asshole, but whether Chris is rescuing a stalker from choking on her own vomit, getting his nose broken for having AIDS (he doesn't) or marrying the one woman that could put up with his insanity, his life sounds so much like a collection of hilarious bar stories it's impossible not to grab a beer and listen to the whole thing.
