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 […]

Fun Friday – Furry Edition

| 26. August 2011

Who would have thought it… I am posting an update concerning Steampunk and Furries… The ætherweb really has information on everything… Well, I asked for information about Steampunk and Furries, in case someone could prove me wrong on my previous assertion that there is not too much overlap and guess what happened? The esteemed Mr. […]

Abe Lincoln with Assault Rifle on Grizzly

| 16. August 2011

Personally  I think the politicans of the recent decades lack a certain something. But then maybe the presidents we consider heroic and badass today were just regular guys and acquired an aura of the superhuman through the course of history. Well, recently I came across the marvelous artwork of SharpWriter on DeviantArt and  he has […]

Geek Overkill: Zelda meets Tesla

| 28. Mai 2011

The Legend of Zelda is one of the most iconic, beloved and bestselling video games of all time. I have myself guided Link in various incarnations through a number of adventures. My first encounter was in 1988 during a student exchange in St. Paul, MN. Now, geek interests often overlap. You get game geeks who […]

Clockwork Steampunk Pacman

| 7. April 2011

Yes, even classic video games from the paleolithic period of electronic entertainment are not save from Steampunks turning them into clockwork devices, as the following video adequately demonstrates: The Pactuator: a clockwork Pac-Man from Jonathan M. Guberman on Vimeo. Very intersting. I would have liked it even better if a ghost would have swooped in […]

| 15. März 2011

Strange amalgamations are a feature of Steampunk, so are elements of Art Nouveau. Now I have happened upon this image: Outstanding!
