The 80’s

Headbanger’s Ball - Behind The Awkwardness

Headbanger’s Ball

“This was a Christmas present to our mom. I guess you can tell we all loved heavy metal music and had the hair to match. The guy on the back right is the oldest of the four brothers and yes that’s his real hair. The one in the front left is me, the youngest of the four, and yes that was my favorite belt-if you look real close you’ll notice that it didn’t fit anymore. I was pissed that I had to take this picture. This family photo was taken at Sears in 1987. We asked if they had an ally way for the back drop, but had to settle for a plain one.

The Brady Bust

“Kindergarten 1982 , I thought I was going to be in a box like the Brady Bunch family, thinking I would give a wave to my friend Jessica Carte right above me. I was devastated when I found out pictures were taken one by one and the boxes were the layout.”

Run To The Hills - Behind The Awkwardness

Run To The Hills

“This picture was taken circa 1985. I grew up the only Chinese kid in a very small town. I went through a heavy metal phase after being introduced to Iron Maiden from the cool older kids on my block. In an attempt to fit in, I pierced my ear and got a mullet.”

Lipstuck - Halloween

Lipstuck

“Assuming this was Halloween 1984ish, or at least I hope so based on my brothers choice of headgear, my mom swears she was putting lipstick on me. I question this theory, but it makes for a great photo.”
