The 80’s

Last Action Heroes

“I’m on the right my brother is on the left. It was the middle 80s. All I can say is I fully hold Stallone and Van Damme responsible for this. We tried. We failed. Miserably.”

Pump Up The Volume

“This is my 2 sisters and me in a portrait that was an anniversary gift for our parents. Our sister Michelle, in red with a hybrid ‘Farrah Fawcett /Pittsburgh big hairdo, was the one who thought this would be the perfect gift (she footed the bill).”

The Triangle

“My mother got her hairdresser diploma in 1987. I was a poor innocent victim of her experiments. I guess she put a billiard triangle around my head and put in some hairspray.”

Hair Club

“This family photo was taken at Sears in 1987 as present to our mom. I guess you can tell we all loved heavy metal music. 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 I was pissed that I had to take this picture.  We asked if they had an alley way for the back drop, but had to settle for a plain one.”

“Me as a baby around 1989. Don’t worry, I’m not really drunk, but I sure look a lot like I am.”

Bangin’

“The day before school pictures 1984 my mom was complaining that I wore black too often (all the time). So after making myself beautiful on school picture day I grabbed an old white sweater vest out of her closet and wore it to school. She still was not pleased with my school photos. Wonder why?”

The Blowout

“My mom and aunt were always into the big huge 80’s hair, but seriously wtf is on my head? My aunt did my hair, and my mom loved it enough to allow me to get professional pictures taken.”
