Matric replied to Sky Captain Gannon's discussion DO YOU THINK STEAMPUNK IS A FAD ? AND WILL LOSE STEAM?
"Not that this is a bad thing. No subculture remains stagnant and survives. Whether it lives or dies for the masses, who cares: I doubt that will have any effect on some of us. and uhhh for the record, me too."

If anyone is/knows of fellow members in central (hour west of Chicago) or western Illinois, please contact me through this mail or facebook. It's awful lonely out here in the nether region.

Why, thank you, Matric! I think you're great too. Thank you for the stimulating political conversation. It's not often I get to talk about the Glorious Revolution with people.
kindest regards,
Alice

True... but that doesn't make it any easier. I mean, I reserved a hotel room and all that. It's just frustrating.

Dear Matric...
I understand you make marvelous leather bracelets. Could you possibly be in touch with me as to how to place and order?

Yours..

Thank you sir! I'm self trained, and mostly I just refuse to believe that I can't do/built/sculpt whatever I want. Did you see my life sized Drop Ship for the 1905 Mars invasion? I'll be posting some video of it up here at some point...

Mmm no, I really don't, I should though :/
... I have not a clue. It's simply that I don't have a ton of technical training, I just do my own thing.

I am quite well. It is good to see you my friend.
