As many of you, our loyal readers, know, we had a lil’ fundraiser thing with Kickstarter.
Well, we just stumbled across this amazing project; it’s particularly meaningful for those who came of age in the late 80s/early 90s. (I also realize, many people reading this weren’t even born yet, which is scary.)
Anyway, in 1989, Michael Galinsky toured the malls of the US with a cheap camera in-hand. Years later, he’s launched a Kickstarter project to compile those images into a photo book celebrating these dying bastions of American culture.
1989 was a particularly great time. “Appetitie for Destruction” was out for two years- just look at the mini-Axls in the photo! It was also the same year Nirvana’s “Bleach” was released. The battlelines were drawn!
