steampunk linkblog, May 3 2011

"Goodyear commits to future with new zeppelin airships." Sadly, the story is not quite as thrilling as the headline makes it sound. But we are all about zeppelins, so this is good news.

 

More good news: Mark Hodder has won the Philip K.…

Steel City Steam Society Photo Shoot

Cordelia set up a second annual photo shoot, this year at the Phipps Conservatory, a wholly appropriate 19th Century edifice. My initial intention was to attend but not in costume because, having obtained a nice digital SLR camera, I expected to be taking more pictures that I had taken the previous year. However, a friend of mine coincidentally scheduled a party…

Beyond Victoriana #74 “War, Steampunk, Bulgaria”--Guest Blog by Harry Markov

Bulgarian soldiers from the 19th century



My post’s title says it all--or at the very least I hope it does. At one point I figured that I’d like to write about the probability of Bulgarian steampunk developing as a genre niche and war, more or less, found its way into my writing. I believe that war is crucial for steampunk as it’s crucial for Bulgaria, in its different manifestations.

Just the begining

Well I have just started Steampunk but I am no stranger to these kinds of oddities.

Each time period had a special place in my heart: the energetic, outgoing, sexy loud Renaissance and the romantic, soft, feminine Dickens fair. I find the these two can collide with Steampunk. I can be an elegant lady on the arm of a mad but genius scientist or brash…

My love of steampunk came from my dad's flour mill

I think my love for mechanical things goes back to working in my dad’s flour mill.

The whole place was run on hydroelectric power from a river that  was diverted to flow under the building.  Electricity was generated, but only to run heavy electric motors in the “new” part of the building.  The flour milling machines ran on a system of flat belt pulleys, with the main  pulley powered from the turning of the water turbine below ground level.…

A short poem on foolish folk.

Ignorant people make me grumpy.
Close-minded people make me cross.
If the world needs such stupidity,
I guess I'm at a loss
