July Fourth Toilet - Behind The Awkwardness

July Fourth Toilet

“This is indeed my family. I was the youngest. It was taken at a photo studio in Fort St. John, British Columbia. The photographer kept asking little ole pre-pubescent me about what I thought of girls. It was hard for me to form a response. He also made me put my hand on my brother, Perry. The oldest brother Frank still plays guitar (it’s obvious that he was into music by his look) and my band July Fourth Toilet even had him play guitar on one of our records as well as in live shows.”

The Little People

“I’m the boy sitting next to the two Umpa Lumpas (sisters), with my mom and brother right behind me. Soon after this fun-filled afternoon, my sister dropped a glass bottle of milk on my foot and I got 24 stitches.”

Days of Denim

“This is my family around 1995 or so. The height of Ck1 and denim themed family photos apparently. That’s me smashing my ribs and gripping on for dear life while I had to hold my serious face pose.”

Holier Than Thou

“My little sister’s first Holy Communion. She was over getting her picture taken and wanted to get out of that dress. We were like, “Just one more in the parking lot!”

Minor Threat - Family Portrait

Minor Threat

“This is a family portrait from 1987. I just love the contrast of the punk rock kids, coupled with the wholesomeness of Mom and daughter. It brings a smile to all of us, and we want to share the photo on your website.”

Then Came The Chicken

“My youngest brother refused to be in the photo for our church telephone book unless he could wear his cowboy suit. The accordion followed. Then came the chicken. I just get to be awkward because I’m in fourth grade and have a turtle t-shirt and a severe part.”
