    From what I've seen lately, sub-Buzzfeed wokeness-by-numbers with added drug stories to remind you that they're still edgy. The ratio of fun to finger-wagging is asymptotically approaching zero.

    Nope. It's probably read mainly by the army of unpaid contributors that write for it.

    admit it, you're both just getting old. no longer of the vice target demographic, kids who read it now probably love the fact that you think it's passe.

    I listen to Radio 3 and my main interest is foraging mushrooms. I don't think I've ever been part of the VICE target demographic.

    I dunno mate - bit younger than me? I'm 38.

    I wonder how the remaining readership is split between hip 20-year-olds and people of my age who've been reading it since they were 20.

    I just wonder if Gavin McInnes is such a wanker that he puts people off anything he was even tangentially involved with at one time in the past.

    Oh we're all still in nappies as far as Leo's concerned.

    damn right! now get off my lawn!!

    haven't done the research by I imagine the vice demo is high school/college, maybe some early 20s but most likely 15-20 years old. we think it's boring, dumb and stuck in a rut (which, of course, it is) but for a 16 year old who has never stolen a car, done meth or been in a gang, it's still probably pretty eye opening and awesome.

    15-25 year olds are literally too woke/internet communist for vice in the current year, even in 2014 it was that way

    I love the implication that, of course, it goes without saying, all of us have done all those things in our now-distant youth.

    absolutely not. Woke, maybe, but they also are still about being 'transgressive' (flippant, banal, vacuous). internet communist? won't touch it.
