Though I would've preferred the old logo on a shirt, these are pretty sweet. I think I'm going to have to get one.

How many minutes until this becomes the new logo for the forum (or at least someone's avatar):

Answer: 8.

Oh, here's the biggest laff... the men's shirt's only go up to a size L and they're American Apparel which means that the L is really a M which means that the only people who would buy a Criterion shirt can't fit into it. Fatties must get Janus shirts (which are cooler and cheaper anyway).

Criterions new core market is skinny indie kids such as myself, so this makes perfect sense.

I guess you're right. As a quickly aging and expanding consumer who supported Criterion's ass back in the laserdisc days, I should feel no resentment that they now think they're a skateboard company.

Oh, listen to that. Didn't that just sound like a bitter, middle-aged divorcée who got dumped for a new hot piece of twat?

As someone who also has been a fan and supporter of Criterion since the laserdisc days, I have to admit I find this fairly lame and must agree with Matt's skateboard company comment.

Nice rack, though.

I actually want to make it the logo for now but can't do anything like that from work. So if you want to, eh, go nuts.

Done. I included the "best friend" on the left, too.

Well, at least Criterion are being open about the distastefully anti-cinephile consumerism which their brand encourages.

I'm thinking of the 'hardcore Criterion collectors' who will blind-buy everything the company releases, and get more pleasure from the thought of arranging the disc spines on their shelves than they do from watching the actual films.

That's a caricature, but there certainly seem to be people like that around.

Actually, you might characterize this as anti-consumerist. If you think of collecting in the Benjaminian sense of redeeming the commodity by removing its use-value and thereby appreciating it as object, then you've made several steps away from the consumerist cycle you describe.

Personally, I like lining things up and looking at them. I used to do it with my Star Wars figures when I was 7, now I do it with books and DVDs.

Just in terms of the new fourm logo, it's worse than those McDonalds commercials. I love it. Well done.

Exactly.

[Note: I see that this image is saved as "boobs.jpg." Please tell me that wasn't Criterion's designation.

I guess there wasn't enough money in the budget to iron the shirts first.
