Steampunk out of South Africa – quite erotic, actually

| 18. Oktober 2012

This came in through the ætherbox today and I am quite delighted. A Steampunk-themed video with a lot happening in it. Despite all the things you can see in it, the overall feel is chilled and there is more than just a pinch of erotica in there. See for yourself:

Are you praying to Cthulhu?

| 19. Januar 2012

The obvious answer for me is a resounding YES! followed by a barrage made up oof Iä!’s and sounds a human throat should not be capable of. Why I am asking this question? Well, time index 02:59 in this video: As it appears, there are more oppenly Cthulhuist Steampunks around, which I am very happy […]

Two ætherweb finds I thought I share: zeppeline from Boremir Bakharev on Vimeo. Zeppelin from Bob Orsillo on Vimeo.

Through the Ætherbox

| 20. November 2011

I have been sloppy reacting to input I received through my ætherbox recently. There have been quite a number of things trickling in, mostly in relation with the European Steampunk Convention, but also others. Planning for the ESC is one of the reasons this blog has been getting rather short updates recently. First, I want […]

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. Very much like William Gibson, my ideas about computers and what was going to be known as cyberspace were shaped by my total lack of technical knwowledge. My lack of technical knowledge back then […]

Tom Slatter – Beast of the Air

| 20. Oktober 2011

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 […]

Fun with a train on the train

| 5. Oktober 2011

I frequently travel into the Black Forest on business, seriously, I do. About once every two weeks. What I do there, in the Black Forest? Well, I have things to do there… That is all I say. On the way there, I have on several occasions spotted something rare and beautiful, but the glimpses have […]

Ghostfire – More Great Music

| 19. September 2011

Admittedly, it is getting harder and harder to impress me when it comes to steampunk related music. After being honoured with reviewing such notable works like Steampowered Stories by The Cog is Dead and the works of Abney Park and Veronique Chevalier in general I am always a bit worried I could get my hands […]

Just an absolutely beautiful and marvelously executed fan-made video for Abney Park’s The Wrath o Fate, please enjoy: And that’s actually all for today, folks!
