    It Has Style

    Steam punk has such a unique style that can be incorporated into most any situation.I think it would be cool if more people dressed in this way on a daily bases.A lamp like this would look cool any where.I just like the all around look and feel of steampunk style.

    Yeah

    I do like Steampunk. I'm not really into the clothes and things but I love the inventions. The ideas of these strange machinery, tiny automatons and huge freaking airships! I love the diagrams of them as well, all the sketches of them. It makes it seem like they could be real. My...

    The music is what really grabs me in.

    Dr. Steel (Back and Forth), Abney Park (Sleep Isabella) , Voltaire (This Dark and Twisted Road), and Emilie Autumn (Marry Me) are my personal favorites. You?

    More Than Brass Goggles

    I love steampunk and its many guises. But there must be more to it than a pair of brass goggles! I love the juxtaposition of technology with historic period. The what if factor. What if the Victorians could travel in space. How would Edwardians deal with aliens? I love it.

    A few days ago while filling a script I asked

    the girl if she was a cyclist because she has cog earrings. Her reply: "No, I'm into steampunk." My heart melted. Too bad it was before I broke off my engagement.
