Happy Halloween everybody and Iä!

| 31. Oktober 2011

Halloween is upon us and for this reason I am blatantly going to steal my friend Hilde’s design she posted over at the Gatehouse blog, but before, here comes the cultist: Halloween is, according to the holy and wholesome writ of the Great Prophet Howard, one of the most important festivals of the Cult of […]

Some Cyberpunk Songs

| 30. Oktober 2011

Very much like Steampunk, I was interested in Cyberpunk long before I had any idea there was a name for it.

My lack of technical knowledge back then […]

It has been a while since I last posted something about one of the most talented and versatile steampunk artists in Britain, Tom Slatter. A shame, really, since his music videos a polished eye-candy. This one is yet another great steampunk adventure put into a music video: Tom Slatter facing off against the infamous Air […]

First Commercial Spaceport

Right now the idea is still crazy but it makes perfect sense: If you make space travel available to the public, people will be interested in booking a really exclusive holiday or an […]
