"Lets not forget that the basis of steampunk is not living in the past but rather the assumption that history divided back then and brought us into modern times with a different focus for society and science. If you think sneakers and aloha shirts…"
Sir Geezer Pan Dowdy hails from the NE of the Americas. Very much the artist and musician, if a player of the banjar can be called such. he has spent many years in tropical isles studying and mixing with exotic flora and fauna.
The spiritual inclinations of the Pan have derived from the esoteric branches of most major religions and a year was spent withdrawn from the distractions of the world in a remote mountainous cave in order to cogitate divinely upon a single knowing and to fathom a single Idea of Truth from the histories of belief.
A time fracture was experienced while living as a troglodyte and since coming down from the mountain the Geezer has walk amongst us in an anachronistic haze, very happy with himself but not always in touch with conventional pragmatics.
Be that as it may, Sir Geezer Pan Dowdy is very happy to find a community of wondrous folk as creative and as searching as himself and does throw himself willingly into the give and take of ideas and culture in this Empire.
Latest project is a snagpole for gaining the tethers at the mooring mast.
Also watching for a fiddler who is comfortable enough with their playing to work on some modal tunes for steampunks. I clawhammer.
Always happy to to merry meet.
It is so good to hear from you and it sounds as if ole man winter has been kind to you. May I ask a question. I have heard there is a unwritten law that the passenger on a bike is not suppose to smile?lol
Hello my friend. I am visiting your page to see what ya have been up to lately and makin sure you haven't been doin norty thangs like.. ohhh... like riding your bike wearing your kilt again. ahh hahahaha =P
Dear Geezer Pan Dowdy, You have made me giggle AGAIN! AND I will rush through this note to you because I am anxious to read another comment that you have made in the post above, where you tell of your experience on motorcycle wearing a kilt. ahh haha ahhhh hahahaha... I cannot wait to read it and I'm sure there are more giggles to come!
okayyyy... hmmm... what was I going to write to you about before that distracting post caught my eye? (more giggles)..ohh yess..you will be happy to know that I spent a little bit of money at the local thriftstore and found some wonderful SP items. I am stoked to find such wonderful treasures that I may embellish and add my own details to. After a full cart, I decided I might better edit these things before I have them rung up. I know I make funny faces when I'm deep in thought and I caught myself tapping my finger against my bottom lip while editing. Seeee I get lost in imagination when it comes to these things.lol..
Dear Geezer Pan Dowdy, I added you, but once I added you, your little note to me went pooof! Sadly, I didn't get to read it. I would be so pleased if you could resend it for you took the time to write to me.
Dear Geezer Pan Dowdy, You will be so happy to find that I have corrected the problem. I am so sorry. Sometimes I get carried away. I have left only 2 photos but I truly need to sew my dress for it's almost complete but I'm undecided on the embellishments and details. Sincerely, ~Mademoiselle Suzette Cherie~
giggles..I promise I'm no model.. I wouldn't be able to sit still long enough for that...I'm just the girl next door. I may have posted too many photos! I may have to rethink these pics. ..and I'm so sorry. I so want to funish my SP wardrobe but am busy doing a little charity today for that is where my heart lays. I will correct the album and quickly. Sincerely, ~Mademoiselle Suzette Cherie~
To folks who question the authenticity of a Hawaiian shirt as steampunk, remind them that the question of who should run Hawaii was being posed during this period, and while the rayon versions may be a stretch time line wise, any steampunker concerned about proper timelines should be ignored.
