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!

Sir Klaus, If fate is kind, perhaps we shall cross paths in the near future!

I've quite enjoyed the sonic selections provided here. I will certainly mention them to the G.N.A.S.H.ers and perhaps charm my guests with those selections at the upcoming wake I'm hosting for our dearly departed ship's feline, 'Dopplegangster'. With your blessing and permission only, of course.

Finest regards,

M'Dear Miss Chevalier,

I am eagerly looking forward to the festivities this evening!

However, when I went to the Echo Curio site, it said all shows start at 9 if not otherwise stated, with doors opening an hour ahead of time. AND it did not state that your show starts at 8... I tried calling them, and the number is not working! Egads!

Thus, I must inquire... does your show actually start at 8, in which case I will arrive earlier to secure my seat, or do the doors open at 8?

Thank you,
Lady Pen

‘Tis my pleasure to aid in your worthy comedic endeavors in whatever capacity I may, Veronique; the world is made brighter with the gift of laughter you bring to us!

Brightest blessings!

I wish to extend deepest thanks to Dr. Horatio VonDarkfaulker for so kindly sending an invitation to his 'fiends' & colleagues to join us here in the land of Mad Sonics! I promise that I shall be offering tangible benefits to vous, my eSTEAMed followers in the near future. I am most appreciative of your kind consideration!

Oh, my darling Veronique. My dream mate, I miss you. I'm sorry I vanished. It was necessary. I will talk to you soon. You are amazing. - Steve
