Project Urban Haiku

| 22. März 2014

This is a little bit of a self-plug. Over the course of the last twelve months, I set myself the task of writing at least one haiku every day. Granted, I did not always manage, but I did my best to catch up when I had the time. The haikus I wrote primarily deal with […]

Review: Escape the Clouds – Moments EP

Review: Steampunk Style

| 11. März 2014

The stream of books about the look and feel of Steampunk continues: Steampunk Style is the latest of this kind that has found its way into my humble abode and it is something special: It is from Japan, to be exact, the first genuine Japanese example of Steampunk (other than music) I have held in […]
