    I'm glad I don't have any kids. There isn't much place in the US any more where you can bring kids up to be like Beaver and Wally Cleaver.

    Tom, you're making it too easy to tease you...

    Anyway, OP the image is really great, I bet he loves it and it will get him lots of goth girlfriends (and I was once goth, and the girls are... Fun... So watch out!). But yea I never confused Nirvana with being goth... Hmmm

    Are you sure he isn't emo, or some other sub culture? Hardcore or screamo or something new I'm not familiar with?

    Nice image either way

    I'm raising the last of eight kids in a remote rural town, where the kids don't have a clue who Wally and the beav were. They embrace everything on tv and are very much part of the modern culture. As for the genre of the OPs son, my daughter called him an "emo". I don't have a clue as to what or why.

    Yea, emo would at least potentially explain the nirvana shirt... Though of he were emo he might get really defensive about not being emo when you called him emo... (Emo= emotional)

    Actually when I was a kid in the 60's, our school and our classrooms were almost exactly like Miss Lander's class, and our family and neighborhood lives were almost exactly like Beav, and Larry, and Whitey, Tooey, Lumpy, Chester, and Wally. And there was always a Judy Hensler type in the classroom.
    Leave it to Beaver was practically a reality show to me.
    Edit: oops, Almost forgot about Eddie Haskell. We had one of those too. His name was Sam Helms.

    He might just be "scene". Scene and emo kids dress pretty much the same way, but act differently. Scene kids kind of act like skaters...emo kids get overly dramatic about the smallest things in life.

    Emo kids are the "I hurt myself so that I can feel alive!" bunch. The "You couldn't possibly understand what I'm going through" kids. The "rip my black cold heart out of my chest and throw it on the ground" kids. The good news is, when emo kids outgrow that phase, many of them become hipsters, which is great for the future of film. Hipsters love film.

    More to my earlier "teasing" of you, if your life was so happy, why are you always so bleak now? Lo
