    Trail blazing emos before emos were invented.

    Is this the cast from “village of the dammed” all grown up?

    Marney and her family posing for a regulation size Christmas photo for their annual holiday card.

  12. Gravity's Rambo says:

    This is the evil alternate universe version of the denim family lying on top of each other. The only thing missing are goatees.

  13. Carolyn says:

    Wow! (Did they PAY for this?!)

    • Tracy says:

      No, we didn’t. I was working at the photo studio at the time so it was free. Also, this was taken in 1987, hence the hair styles. In the real photo you can see the separation of the shirts and the background as well, so it isn’t as bad as it looks here. We did plenty of smiling ones too and with different clothes and backgrounds, but for some reason this is the one we all liked. (Probably because it WAS so different.) Still better than a Sears portrait! BTW, our last real family portrait….
      Well, enjoy!

    Odd, very odd

  15. DeeDeeDeeDee says:

    Dad obviously didn’t get the memo not to smile.

    Living proof that blondes don’t actually have more fun.

  17. Freckles says:

    Tina Yothers, yo!

  18. Deacon Blues says:

    Marcel Marceau’s staff.

  19. EM says:

    Mimes? More like chameleons, with the dark blue sweaters on dark blue background!

    • Tina Yothers wanna be says:

      Wow, Tina Yothers, huh!?! (Actually, I remember being REALLY proud of my ‘good hair day’!!! Lol – It was 1987, after all!!!). BTW, our turtlenecks and the backdrop were both black. Oh, and all of us used the same lipstick ( well, except for Dad, of course!) Also, it was about 1987, so come on, people! Oddly, I left this shoot and went straight to a funeral. So, I’ve always felt this prtrIt was fitting for that day.

  20. Michael says:

    I wonder what mealtime is like with the family…

  21. TipToeDude says:

    If you squint it looks like a battle between five floating heads and four floating hands.

  22. Blueskywoman says:

    Life sucks. Take it seriously.

  23. Kathryn says:

    This won honorable mention in the “Create Your Own Abilify Ad” contest.

    • Vicki says:

      That cracked me up!

    • Tina Yothers wanna be says:

      Lol! As the ‘Tina Yothers’ in the pix (and eldest daughter), I can assure you that Abilify would probably be helpful! Lol. My cousin Cassie apparently submitted this…. Well, just remember, Cass: Pay back’s a b…… Lol!!!

  24. Johntographer says:

    … Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality…

    • Snowrider says:

      HAAA! Excellent floating head video! I like to listen to a little Bohemian Rhapsody on my way to Stan Makita’s.

  25. Mrs. Claus says:

    LOL! It’s like they are floating heads, not attached to their bodies. LOL!

  26. Peupdy Paints says:

    *sings* I ain’t got no body! And no body has got meee!

  27. Lisa says:

    Why is no one smiling? Was this taken after a funeral? Why didn’t the photographer tell them they looked like floating heads & hands?? So many questions…

  28. Chelsie Bristol says:

    I thought ABBA had only 4 members?!

  29. Nonymouse says:

    “If we all wear black, the photo will be timeless!”

  30. Cheryl says:

    I think it would have made more sense to put the dad in the middle of the picture.

  31. adie says:


  32. kc says:

    The Floating Head family.

  33. Velvet Knight says:

    Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
