More fresh meat for the Slacker nostalgia meal we've been happily snacking on all year: Criterion posted earlier today a series of Polaroids taken on set circa 1980.

It's a nice reminder to be looking back – we ran our Slacker 20th anniversary piece in January – and lately all we've been doing is looking forward to Slacker 2011.

Oh, and speaking of: We'll of course be running a big fat feature on the feature-length homage/reimagining/potential trainwreck in advance of its Aug. 31 premiere, but in the meantime, we encourage you to check out Slackerwood's ongoing chats with participating filmmakers breaking down their individual scenes. It's good stuff.
