Greetings!  Just got in on the Pan Am Clipper.

(He removes his fedora and trenchcoat and hands it to the coatcheck gal. She's behind a counter, dammit -- can't see her wheels.)

I offer my new indie film project, which is a love letter to classic sci-fi, classic films, and a "future that might have been."

Look for a short trailer and more later this year!

I also offer a link to www.coverbrowser.com's section on the Astounding/Analog magazine covers of yore. No finer dieseltronic imagery will you find anywhere!

Great stuff! That cover collection of old issues of Astounding Stories is particularly wonderful!

Also, welcome, of course, to the Smoking Lounge, sir! It seems you've come to the right place!

Just seen Mutant Chronicles: one to watch with the volume down and a record on. The story is pretty dumb to my mind, but the machines are beautiful, especially the steam-powered shuttle, which looks excellent. Unfortunately plot-wise it reminded me of Warhammer 40,000: lots of random carnage but pretty soulless, and nothing much to warm to.

Re: Recent Dieselpunk films

I didn't even think it as good as WH40K - it's rambling, no depth to the story, and could have been set in WW1 for all it's futurism. Awful film!
