threedingers: Thudfark: What an XP-38 may look like

Can you imagine just how radical and futuristic that must have looked when it was rolled out in 1938?


They must have really flipped for this then.

I take it that bailing out for those gunners was not an option? Those doors look like they'd chuck 'em right into the props. Still, gotta love that Art Deco vibe the whole thing oozes.

This picture is so beautiful. The confusion on her face so perfectly expresses every misgiving I have about the fad of 30-something parents shoveling belatedly-marketed crap from the terrible media of our youth onto the new generation of young'uns. I know this is Star Wars being shown, but we're shoving GI Joe and Transformers down their throats when they were shiatty cartoons to begin with.

I think it would be better this than, say, Akira.

I've got no intention of having kids and I'm in my mid-30's. But, I do have nephews and I will be showing them Miyazaki movies as soon as they can sit through 2 hours of anything.

The greatest thing Disney ever did was bring Ghibli movies over here.

Be sure to show them Grave of the Fireflies. Kids love that one.


Make sure you show them the Ghibli movies in Japanese.  The cat in Kiki's delivery service says very little in Japanese and won't shut the fark up in English.

GI Joe was probably shiat, and the Transformers cartoon was pretty crappy when I went back as an adult to watch it... but to be fair, as a 5 year old, it was a pretty awesome show.

That said, if you were *ever* a fan of Transformers... the comic book series based on it wasn't entirely horrible and more recently, the updated "Transformers Prime" series is not too bad for a kid's show.

My nephews both love Transformers (the new iteration), and I hope my daughter (or future son) will enjoy them as well because we'd have that in common, plus a have a ton of the G1 series toys in a chest waiting for them when they are old enough to either appreciate them, or understand their collectible value.

Not planning on cramming it down their throats either way, but if you see some of the shiat that's on TV these days for kid's programming, the original Transformers series isn't *that* awful in comparison.
