Ax-Man is pretty much made of awesome.

If any of you are ever in St. Paul, Minnesota or the Twin Cities in general you should definitely stop by Ax-Man. They have the coolest random junk ever. They have motors and random electrical stuff, tools, lights, lenses, military surplus, laboratory equipment, Abrams tank gun sights, they even have an iron lung, and a submarine periscope (which spans the entire back wall of the store).

 

I was just there today and got a whole…

I love this cover.It would be the first thing that caught my eye at the library. It would also be Jim Fisk's fantastic mustache and the swirly Victorian text. I flipped over the cover and find a great story…

Characters are essential.

Then I write the stories around them and why they would to this or go here. But I haven't been able to post anything to my blog till now because my internet is back on! YAY! I need another job. Then the internets won't get turned off. Starving artist me. So now I'm going to go add a bit more to the Characters list and then I'll add a bit o blog.

"The air-purifying class of respirator makes contaminated air breathable by passing it through a filtering element before it is inhaled. The earliest, most primitive forms of these devices weren't much more than bag-like screens placed over the head, or pieces of cloth or sponge covering the nose and mouth. Not until the 19th century did… Continue

July 24, 1893

It has been exactly one month since Joshua began to court me.  I do not know why I am keeping track of the days, but he himself thought this was an occasion worthy of gifts.  He has been nothing but pleasant.  I wonder, however, if we are behaving rashly.  We are not as young as some of our acquaintances, but there is much left for us to explore and to learn.  Will it be possible for us to find our paths in life together?  Will we tire of each other after another month or a year?  Will he be… Continue

un-expressible.

I am a massive fan of everything steampunk, like lots of people here if possible i would make it my way of life.

But in todays world it gets harder and harder to express yourself without being ridiculed, i mean is it really a bad thing not wanting to look like any other person walking the street or not wanting to just look identical every other person in your work class ect. Its really disopointing that this is what we have come too.

So im going to order some nice…
