"Hey, Janice, Honey... Can you tell me again what it says at the bottom of page four? This damp ass stick won't burn, I think I'm doin' it wrong !"
The game has never been "give the people what they want".
It has always been "make them think you have given them what they want".

They're cashing in on several subcultures' methodology because their correlation (separation from “the system”) has become somewhat of a trending meme (due to the growing changes in “the system” and how it is viewed).
I think the only thing they’re trying to say is: “We have made these pictures, and the words next to them, expressive of concepts that might be desirable or intriguing to you. We have done so because we want to sell you the image of your desires. That is, we want your money and we made this magazine to trade to you for your money: please buy it.”
It is kind of silly when you break it down like that, isn’t it? But that’s what it is.
