Great finds, HildeKitten! I'm especially drawn to the steampunk tram artwork. It speaks volumes in itself.

Easy, Have a key ring that you don't have to grab yourself, but one that follows you around like a clank!


Also, if we have our own pub on board, our offerings better include this.

On another note, just for fun I recommend scrolling through this site. for ideas on ship concepts.  Lots of neat ideas!

Hey, that's a pretty nice find. I like the asymmetric styling of it. Great concept with the use of color.

Glad you guys didn't suffer any damage. And, I must add, very good show by you to go around looking to help! We need more like you in this world!

And major congrats to Captain Hazard,(pardon the pun)! A very good article, indeed!

I'm just having a shit time at the moment.

Sorry to hear that you're having a hard time with your computers. Everybody wishes to use a sledgehammer on theirs every once in a while.

However, and as for your rant regarding Valentines I say...

BRILLIANTLY SAID!!!

First thing, commendations to Yaghish, for a splendid post that I did so thoroughly enjoy. You have a talent, my friend. If I find a "Steampunk's Guide to the Galaxy" on the shelf, I hope you're one of the authors!

1) Captain Sohm, U.S.A.

2) Long time interest in sci-fi but I was always most interested in the weapons and ships that showed wear/tear and looked home built. I finally narrowed down more what I loved in the genre before I stumbled upon Steampunk and it was love at first sight. As Kremper mentioned, the vistas one can imagine in a steampunk world are amazing and are always ready to surprise.

3) I like incorporating some steampunk fashion in small ways all the time. Especially when formal. I always have liked tinkering, so that's not something new there.

4) Steampunk is just the best that could have been, but ne'er was, in my mind. What would happen if the novelties of the 1910 World Aviation Cup and similiar aspirations were set loose upon the world without the need to copyright the whole darn thing. When beauty takes as much consideration as function and pride is bestowed on every creation by its creator.

5) Not sure how to answer this. I guess I've always had a bit of steampunk in me, but only in the past few years did I know of the term that roughly defines it. The style, the art, I love it all. I especially enjoy the positive camaraderie of folks who take pride in their own machines and machinations. The great pride that we claim to be ours for being off-label and making more beautiful things than corporations could bring themselves to comprehend.


6) ...well, I'm not sure I could improve on Kremper's list. I am very hard pressed to say what (physically) commands a labeling as steampunk or not. To me, steampunk is a metal state or rather, a way of thinking. If you slap a simple outfit together, well, congratulations but that's only one small part of the puzzle. When you put it on, does it make your imagination run amok? Do you suddenly smell grease and canvas? Well, I can't give any definitive answer, but if all the distance you can go is the cloth, then it's not steampunk. It's not the what, it's the WHY.
