ROCK OF AGES hits theaters today!

Drawn Together

May 30th, 2012

“This is a photo of myself and my brother and sister wearing one of the worst Christmas presents from the late 80’s. My great aunt crocheted these matching sweaters for us and thought we would love them. We were forced to wear them to the theater when we went to see Home Alone. Embarrassing to say the least.”

Denim Days

June 5th, 2012

“I am the little girl who looks to be about 40 years old and that’s my brother on the right. My mother wanted our portraits done and we didn’t want to be anywhere near each other so she bribed us with candy bars to stand back to back like best buds. Oh yeah, and clad entirely in denim. Why did we all have those giant glasses in the 80’s? I look like Tootsie.”

Half Mesh, All Man

June 5th, 2012

“This is a picture of my mother’s two younger brothers and our uncle. My Uncle Mike is the hairy one in the half mesh, cut-off shirt with the socks pulled up, the one next to him is his younger brother Craig, and the one next to Craig is my Uncle Ron. This was at a family picnic back in the 1980’s. My Uncle Mike was obviously the most fashionable of the bunch.”
