Is it just me or does Wakeman resemble Legolas from Fellowship of the Rings?  And Steve Howe wishes he looked that good!  Wink

You can see them in the second video. And what do you spect for a young girl who is a Yes & Pokemon Fan?


BTW, I remember a comicbook about Genesis, it was about the story of the band in Gabriel era.
Wink Right!!
Come I like it and I am very happy to see young girls these day to be into prog that's is extremely rare here in the USA specially  in NY. when the youth are plague with rap-and punkDead so don't crucify this great achievement from a young child.!!!
I have a 11 years old and I'll be super hyper if my daughter would be into prog and master of the genre as YES.
Cry I am trying very hard to get her into prog/jazz/fusion but I am not succeeding
thanks to   F*&^$CK   MTV.Angry

Implying that this particular style of artwork originated with Pokemon is like implying that Dream Theater created prog.  Ouch

...and are you saying 'gay' like it's a bad thing?  Are you trying to say that it's bad to be gay?  That Squire and Howe, or White and Wakeman...  don't look cute together?  Because if that's what you're saying, we've got a problem.  Angry



Who cares if someone thinks being gay is a good thing or a bad thing, as long as people treat each other with respect and dignity is all that matters,Hug after all its just an opinion.

There seems to be a bit of slash in that last picture on the first video. And the second video is littered with Yesslash. Heart

But I'm disapponted that none of the pictures have my OTP. Squire/Howe is cute, as is White/Wakeman, but I'm more of a Khoroshev/Anderson fan.Embarrassed

Yeah, I was thinking that it would be pretty amazing if they made a trippy cartoon in Yellow Submarine style animation about the Flying Teapot Trilogy. It could be really cool if they did it right.


That would be interesting to see actually.  I was basically saying that it would be horrendous if that same person made the same cartoons based upon those band I mentioned lol. 
Yeah, pretty much anything done in that style of animation will suck, there's absolutely no artistic value. I can see a Flying Teapot movie having artistic value though.

Actually Hawkwind would be kinda cool. Captain Turner and Calvert going on acid fuelled space adventures with Lemmy flying the spaceship. It could be all psychedelic like the animation in the Yellow Submarine, which actually worked wonderfully and is one of favorite movies. Maybe the Soft Machine going on adventures with Syd Barrett and William S. Burroughs into psychedelic realms. The story of the early Soft Machine and Gong is a pretty amazing story.

Yeah I don't think that these videos help dispell any of the criticisms towards the band. LOL

I don't ewanted to sound harsh but looking at some responses I'm not the oly one.
 
This drawings (not cartoos) without a plot (No manga connection) look like the drawings my 10 years nephew did on her scrapbook for N'Sync a couple years ago.
 
I find them horrendous to be honest, rude but hnest.

I use to enjoy the Hawklord books of Moorcock and Butterworth based on Hawkwind - they would make great cartoons.
