Introduction
Umm …are you my minion? I was told to meet my newly appointed minions here. A few days ago there were some women standing about but, they turned out to be minions for hire with an hourly rate. Though the police called them something different, they were my minions for a few well deserved minutes.
Well. If you aren’t my minions, then let me introduce myself. I am Patrick Sprague, The New Soon-to-Possibly be owner of this world. Just owner …not Ruler or Emperor …just owner. Rulers are just renters in an area appointed by another. I am that other; the world owner.
Everyone has their own needs and I want to set the rules. “Between the hours of 9am to 6pm, there will only be the following: sleeping, recuperation, poking fun at those suffering from the huge gala the day before, and preparation for the one following.” This is a snippet of my law book.
Are you happy with your life? Should you like to become my minion and rule under The Owner of the World? Apply at the newly merged Mischievous Minions Union and on your application say I requested you. If you don’t reference me, I lose the union signing bonus.

*Peace, Love, and Steam!


So I have had a few people ask me about the “V” hand sign I use in all of my pictures. It’s kind of a long and weird story but, if you want to know than I will be happy to oblige.

My good friend Vincent Paletia McGowerdge, is dreamer …of sorts. The brain in his head can imagine all kinds of ideas for weird inventions and weird sightings. He says they are from different worlds seen on his “adventures through the Æther”. There is however, one thing I must explain. Vincent is the type of person who enjoys (engorges) on food to enhance mental stimulation. This night he eat an entire sack of these magical mushrooms. Of course he passed out only to wake up three nights later, still on my floor, in the same clothes, with small round circles slightly burned in his vest from the hot tea pot I had been setting on him. All to claim he was chronologically displaced. I could only sarcastically reply, “yes love, of course you are… of course.” His only arguments being: he was still in his same clothes whilst I was in my sleeping gown and the burns must have come from the strong light existing only in the Æther. Had he not been so serious I would have unleashed the little school girl inside me and rolled laughing on the floor (where he still resided).

The story he spoke of, that night, was of his “adventure” in a new world. Here was the ending of a world at war against a tiny little country. This country headed by a single man out to become a universal ruler. I could only hope to be so lucky. This one man had united the world against him. Yet, a few mistakes cost him his dictatorship. I could only laugh at the prospect that one man could dominate so much. The people who lived on that world would use the “V” symbol as support for victory in the war. So as kind of a joke and to pretend that I believed him, I use it for my victory goals.

To Steam

May your fittings be strong,
the pipes pressured in steam.
Calculations not wrong,
lest more patience to glean.
Be your work not in jest,
the capacitance clean.
Your essence surfeited,
a ship full of dreams.

Hello good sir! I do believe I took a photo of you at Otakon. At least, I think it's you. Not sure if I can tag people on this site, so I wanted to link it to you.

FS: Steampunk Heavyweapons Steamtrooper

All, I'm selling my SP HeavyWeapons SteamTrooper.  Unfortunately, life situations have put me in sort of a bind. He started out life as an Armor Masters Stormtrooper (in 501st lingo ANH: AM Hero TK). He was retired shortly after Star Wars Celebration 6 (CVI) and sat in a box for 6 months after I built my new kit. I have been in the steampunk community since 2004 and created many costumes. This just seemed like his next step. The kit is built to a person between 5'11-6'4 around 200-275lbs.…See More
