Salutations To My Fellow Steam-powered Travelers!

I am most honored to have entered your dimension, which is the result of happy accident, as I was actually on my journey to quite a different destination!
I am the eccentric Françican (Français-American) Chanteuse (Songstress) known as The "Weird VAL" of Dark Cabaret. I've been described as an unparalleled Parodist; a Steamy Chanteuse, and Spooky Polkanista - a campy incarnation of Edith Piaf from a alternate reality - the one in which my parents are Jim Morrison, and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, and my godparents are Lucille Ball and Weird Al.

I am a self-proclaimed "Mad Sonictist," taking maniacal pleasure in combining previously unrelated musical forms into new, unholy combinations. I vow to leave no genre unadulterated in my quest to create the ultimate Sonic Frankenstein...

I am also an authoress, releasing a full-color book of Steampunk Haiku entitled "My Cog Is Bigger Than Your Cog: SteamKu & Other Verbstrocities" with retina-staining illustrations by Monsieur Walter Sickert of Boston, MA, who is also founder of Steamcrunk band "Walter Sickert & The Army Of Broken Toys!"

I enjoy perv-orming at eSTEAMed convocations of all sorts...I welcome any and all who wish to contact moi, and who might wish to become 'fiends'. A simple Google search of my name will yield numerous clues as to where else I might be located in the Cyberian Dimensions.

Goodwill & Good Cheer to all who enter here!

Additionally, Fisher Bird Call is a most haunting delight.

Devil's Guitar....one cannot possibly say enough of this song. Outrageous fun indeed. A simply lovely collection of musings perfectly spliced into a musical compilation. What a wonderful idea.
