My parents kindly supported my peak edgelord phase :)

My parents kindly supported my peak edgelord phase :)

thndrstrk

Your dad looks like he went through the time portal in the wrong decade and has to save John Conner as a grandpa


SpacePenguin69

Dude he would have LOVED to hear that! Big fan! :“) Thank you!


thndrstrk

Glad to help! Stay up, my brother


getmaimed

She's an edgelady, btw :)


themanhutch

This is awesome


EclecticCounterpoint

Yeah, I was about to say that y’all look cool as hell, honestly.


Pigmansweet

Yeah - second that. They look fun and cool and willing to look a little silly to make their kid feel good. You’re lucky having them as parent s


tornato7

Maybe they knew the only way to get their kid to stop being an edgelord was to make it lame by doing that exact thing


xdeadly_godx

>was to make it lame They completely failed. This is dope.


engbucksooner

Or being an edgelord is hereditary


SpacePenguin69

I think it kind of is.

South Park Chinpokomon episode logic


MarkPapermaster

I see no blunders here. This is wickedly cool.


_Gin_And_Jews_

I’m a dad. This is a life goal.


nerbovig

The amazing thing is they got the family to go along with it. Any dad can dress up like that, but to get your family to pose with you... He's a pro


SpacePenguin69

I‘m confused, do you reckon my dad made us dress up or do you think I‘m a dude? :)) I dressed like this every other day, but my parents decided it would be fun to take my edgy ass to a photo shoot and totally go for the look together!


RegularLisaSimpson

Good parents. Or did they think this would get you to stop? Either way I love this!


ddh85

Yes. This is parenting done right. They look like they'd be fun people.


D1ces

Regardless they knew it would be an awesome picture for the future, they were right.


SamWinchester79

your dad totally has a Raul Julia Gomez addams vibe going on


SpacePenguin69

Hahaha, yes. That fits better than you would think! He wasn’t into trains, but was a great fencer and loved my mom a lot, very puckish, great humor, jolly, but also quite eccentric and with an edge! Wearer of mustaches! Actually both my parents enjoyed (especially the old tv serial) Addams Family!


SamWinchester79

you parents sound awesome! I wish my parents were as fun to do stuff like this with me, so jealous ;) but in a good way


mishka1984

Don't forget the healthy slice of Christopher Walken that regal beast is demonstrating!


[deleted]

You're not a dude?


crazyfingersculture

>or do you think I‘m a dude? :)) **raises hand**


EverybodySaysHi

Whaaaaat you're a girl?


[deleted]

You think it was your peak edge phase but your dad mind controlled you so he has an excuse to get your mom to dress up like that!


SpacePenguin69

Hahah, thanks!


krinkov

It's fucking gold, it should be the header of this sub.


lernington

Truly elite


SpacePenguin69

JEEZ THIS BLEW UP LOL! THANK YOU EVERYONE!! Yes, this pic is 20 years old and Matrix was a major influence!! Growing up, I had a lot of fun and my parents (who were quite eccentric and into roleplay, swordfighting, Japanese martial arts, movies and very silly!) were great! They would crack up at a lot of the comments here! :) I would like to take my few minutes of fame to send this 1980 garden samurai gem into the world - courtesy of my late dad (on the far left). https://imgur.com/a/BhfYYW0 Edit: I‘m also having a good chuckle with my friends at the amount of people who assume I‘m a son. I‘m a daughter (of darkness :p)!


MyDumbInterests

They look like the scariest gang in Napoleon Dynamite's hometown.


GrandMoff_Harry

I’m from Napoleon’s hometown, and I can confirm that we have some *unique* characters.


TheCoastalCardician

“Give me all your tater tots, punk!” “But then I’ll just have tendies left!” (bully grabs tots, but also grabs the container of honey mustard dressing and throws it across the room) To self: *Forgive me master, I must go all out this one time*


booyatrive

Looks like Seth Rogen front & center


dakotawhiebe

>Daughter of darkness Ah so you still haven't outgrown it, good!


SpacePenguin69

No, someone has to keep the legacy alive after all! I carry it with pride, haha.


spacedinoslj

Your dad was an OG weeb <3


SpacePenguin69

Yeah! We often had JP senseis visit us as well cause my parents had a small dojo for a few years. Shortly after I started watching Sailor Moon in 95, he informed me JP animation is a whole genre and watched Nausicaä and Akira with me and opened up a whole new world of interest!


Squeenis

I wanna hold you upside down and shake you to see what else falls out. Sorry about your dad. He even looks like a good dad.


phanfare

Yeah, your parents were just as cringey as you were at that age. I bet they LOVED being able to relive it. Sure you can look back and cringe, but you enjoyed it at the time and that's the important part


[deleted]

[удалено]


SpacePenguin69

We were more a Maiden, Queen(sryche), Manowar and King Crimson kinda family.


orangejuicenopulp

From someone who also lost an amazing, goofy, spirited, and fun loving parent.... I'm so sorry for your loss. These pics made me smile today and think about my own ridiculous upbringing.


typicalsnowman

Let your parents know they are awesome!


SpacePenguin69

They unfortunately passed already (not recent, all good), but at birthdays I like to thank them for playing along lol


jacxy

The understanding we have been given cushioned our ascent to adulthood. We can thank those who gave us that understanding by passing it to the next generation of edgelords. Plus, everyone needs to listen to Warren Zevon.


Dr_who_fan94

Warren Zevon is the shit! Any albums in particular you (or anyone) recommend?


jacxy

What are you in the mood for? I would suggest starting with the self titled release from 76. *Mama Couldn't be Persuaded* is a get up and dance like a jackass in your livingroom tune.


bluekaypierce

Second this! That album has such a wide range of absolute bangers


Vagitron9000

Sorry for your loss. I am glad you are keeping their memory alive and sharing them with the rest of us. Hope all is well.


typicalsnowman

Good to hear, it’s not the amount of time but more the quality of the time you had. Cheers!


CottonTheClown

Dad kinda looks like the dude you assume is a major asshole until you get to know him and then you love him


SpacePenguin69

That‘s spot on and intentionally the kinda vibe he was usually going for!


Archivarianne

I nominate these people for the coolest parents award.


Cozyblu

This should be the sub icon. It’s *blunderriffic*.


DavidMasonBO2

This could he a cheesy 80s action movie lmfao. I like it!


SpacePenguin69

Co-starring Dolph Lundgren, JCVD and Gary Daniels I hope!


DavidMasonBO2

Of course haha

Tommy Flanagan as Henchman #1.


Kteeps

Is your dad J. Jonah Jameson?


SpacePenguin69

LOL! Now that you’re saying it... I‘ll check if our old albums maybe have some pics Peter Parker sold us.


thinkinwrinkle

Awww what sweet parents!


HalfBit-Gaming

It was never just a phase, mom.


SpacePenguin69

I like to think it was not! But there are degrees to it and where it’s a bit mellowed out nowadays, this definitely was the peak lol


manilovethisshit

Are you holding a handgun in a family photo or am I seeing it wrong?


SpacePenguin69

Well, our swords didn‘t seem fitting for the occasion!


whyenn

This is the best answer.


squisheekittee

Well this is just adorable AF


unrealtalk

“Our kid is so cool”


immigrantdragqueen

Your parents are so incredibly bad ass, holy shit. Your dad is like some kind of ultimate god tier cross between Guy Fieri and John Goodman in Big Lebowski if both were the same person and also somehow the lead character in Easy Rider. Your mom is the most powerful mom; Intense vaguely midwestern 70s/80s puffy hairdo combined with the apathetic stare of a crime fighting film noir detective who has seen it all but shows up for the job anyway out of a sense of moral obligation more than anything else. I've never in my life seen any of these vibes combined in this way. Your family may be entirely unique. Also, you look like what would happen if Kraftwerk and any background extra from the original Matrix film combined to create the absolute sickest Disney teen star. Just, remarkable. I love it.


LogicNYC

This could be an anime


SpacePenguin69

What‘s the plot? (Back then my dad said for the shoot we‘re a family of hit(wo)men lol)


ijonesyy

Each one of you needs a unique power too


nerbovig

And you went with it too. Your whole family is living it. This isn't a phase, this is a lifestyle


WrongWayCharlie

This is my favorite picture I've seen on this sub. I wish my parents were this cool!


unimpressedbunny

I LOVE THIS! 😭 What a gem of a physical memory to have


erehwonrepsaj

You’re parents are the fucking shit.


Dexmonkey

Running out of oxygen is a serious concern when your peaks that high.


art_lover82279

Oh I bet your childhood was awesome. I aspire to be this cool as a parent


InevitableSnowDay

Is your dad Johnny Drama?!


kdizzzog

Victory!!!!!!!


SpacePenguin69

lmao I had no idea who that was. I see it now!


sweeptheleg_07

Is your Dad Walter Sobchack?


SpacePenguin69

On an impulse I wanted to say no, also cause he didn’t have that much weight until very late, but back in the mid to late 90s his default daily wear were aviators, a beige utility vest and short sleeve button (but not polo/bowling) shirts, paired with jeans and biker boots, so the top part fits I guess!


lazermaniac

This is fully fucking rad.


sakofeye

Is that a real fuckin gun?!


InternetMadeMe

I was looking at this picture thinking "aw that's cute" and then I saw the gun. Not expecting that tbh!


ASmallTownDJ

It got even better when I saw the gun in dad's waist band. 😆


InternetMadeMe

This picture keeps getting better and better!


[deleted]

- Big, dark sunglasses - leather trenchcoat - brandishing gun Looks like *someone* saw the Matrix during their formative years :P


SpacePenguin69

Totally! The pic is from ~2000 and my Matrix VHS was getting worn out. :))


[deleted]

I was like 6 at the time so I missed out on that phase, but this comment thread still makes me feel nostalgic for the 90s, I'm going to take a swing at left field here and say you begged your parents for [this](https://imgur.com/FTm0eCE) cellphone haha.


Corvus_Antipodum

Your dad had a real bomb ass stache going.


SpacePenguin69

Through the decades, he loved his mustache very much!


daniesza

Supported? They gave you the gene.


My_Body_The_Mystery

Where is this movie. Please. I want to watch this tonight. You get me this movie I will go make the popcorn right now


socialparasite44

This is what i thought the x files would be


AppalachianSasquatch

What an incredible photo.


Icecream_EveryDay

I keep thinking your dad has a light saber slipped up his sleeve


SpacePenguin69

Not in this pic! Try this: https://imgur.com/a/2DTkDJZ

And now I want to be adopted.


RattleMeSkelebones

What are you talking about, this family kicks ass


iintrovertigo

We need a current photo!


SpacePenguin69

You can find current photos of me in my post history. I did not get the chance to take any more recent pics with my mom, so I cannot provide you with those, but here are a pics of my dad before he passed. :) https://imgur.com/a/dldxGqY

Your parents just seem super great. What a wonderful post all around. They, and you, are making a lot of people smile today.

As a trainer for Kendo and Iaido she would have preferred a Samurai themed shoot, but it took less than a minute to convince her, haha.

Sliding in here a day before archival to say that this absolutely kicks ass


[deleted]

Give your parent a heartfelt hug, they deserve it.


ridchafra

Terrible trigger discipline


SpacePenguin69

Absolutely - but I was 14 and angry LOL. This actually is what makes me cringe the most 20 years later, ha!


ridchafra

20 years you say... hmmm, you weren’t a fan of the matrix by any chance, were you?


BearonVonFluffyToes

I was going to scoff and say, that wasn't twenty years ago. And then I thought about it. And fuck... I'm old now aren't I?


ridchafra

I’ve got bad news... it’s pushing twenty *two* years!


SpacePenguin69

Hmmmm... Yeah, you’re onto something here! ;-)

anotherkeebler

So your dad there, which TV cops show's theme was running through his head nonstop for the rest of the day?

Christ did someone steal everyone’s milk that morning? Y’all looked damned pissed! :)

What year is this from?? 😭 if a kid like this wanted to take a picture posing with a gun, you know, pale and dressed in all black with glasses on, I think everybody would be quite concerned these days Oh and the jacket 😂 Love it though


bigoooooooof69696869

This is one of the greasiest family photos every lol that is so awesome your parents are amazing.

tetrapsy

That's awesome.


Hanwise_Gamgee

Your family are the best!


[deleted]

Fuck, your dad is JK Simmons?


Diazepampoovey

This may be a blunder on your part but this is genuinely wholesome and speaks volumes of the character of your folks. Instead of trying to force you to *dress nice* or in a way that made you feel uncomfortable, they just went with what made you happy and embraced you for it. Seriously, my mom would have considered doing something like this for me had either of us ever thought about it but there's absolutely no way my Dad would have ever considered it.


GOONCH12D3

Your dad looks like Tom Atkins
