Reasons not to become a “crate digger” (people, often djs, who live to rummage through old record bins in search of elusive records) as illustrated by Stefan Glerum. When I look at these drawings I can’t help but hear Showbiz and AG in my head – “I’m down with the crew called Diggin’ in the Crates!” Love the rendering style and the way the text is handled.
YES. FINALLY. In all my running around and vacationing during August I missed the exciting announcement that a Criterion edition of Bottle Rocket will finally be released on November 25th 2008.
