Blogger Blues! PLUS...fun stuff!

ARRRR...my final Crustacean Domination post was chomped up by a computer glitch (and one of those odd moments when Blogger can not save drafts)...so back to the writing pad. I'll rework the post and images and post it shortly. In the meantime, enjoy these!! I love old ads... if my son ever asked for that machine gun by name I'd be horrified!

People have a hissy fit about the Middle Eastern "stereotypes" shown in Hollywood action films but this generation has nothing on the people who were adults during WWII. Take a look through issues of major magazines like Time from that era. The images of Germans, Japanese and – to a lesser extent – Italians are bone-chilling. And it worked, too. some 60 years later my mother, then in her 20s, harbors a deep distrust of the Japanese. Krak-A-Jap... wow!
