I haven't checked back here since the major disappointment of missing WSE...
But no matter, air through the engine now, right?
Err, sure, whatever.
Well, lets just say that even more disappointing things have happened that made missing a silly expo that will probably be back next year, exceedingly trivial. And that isn't even the worst of it.
What could possibly be worse than having to leave the internship of my dreams early because of something that wasn't… Continue

I have been travelling beyond this fine establishment and discovering new things... the mark of an adventurer perhaps?
I have discovered all sorts of fascinating things... for example...
Dieselpunk, Clockpunk, Elfpunk, Cyberpunk, Atompunk and Retro-Futurism and one of the burning questions that, as yet, remains unsettled in my mind is how did the term "punk" come to be associated with the prefixes?
What was it that caused the creators of the terms to… Continue

I have been in this time for more than a day; there are many people here that give me more than a passing glance at my 21st century clothing. It took me several hours to find a way to secure clothes that would help me blend in. This surely is no science fiction film we saw on cable.
People in this age fight to live. Government largely does not exist. They broke down after the economic and political collapse of the… Continue

One theory of time holds that timestreams diverge from certain pivotal moments. If an event can have two possible outcomes, and both are equally likely, then this theory says that both outcomes must occur. This is known as the "Trousers of Time" theory, in which each possible outcome leads history down a separate trouser leg.
I used to think that this theory was rubbish. Energy is needed to push the present moment along, and if time suddenly bifurcates then the amount of required… Continue

My work also looks at the ideals of beauty and femininity represented by examples of privileged members of society, and the aspirations of the less fortunate women to be like them. - Mary Sibande (source)

Let's just go ahead and say that as a gambler, Mr. Finn will need some sort of firearm. I'll be making several, from a derringer-sized "holdout" to a full-size hogleg with belt and holster for when he's traveling in the Outskirts. I'll detail them here, as I work on them, but frankly, that's nothing new.
There are, however, three particular accoutrements that I will be tricking up from scratch that are unique to Mr. Finn's profession. They will all fit into a fourth item that… Continue

Received a package from Bernie yesterday. The new dress she sent at my request turned out to be rather more pink and ruffly than I expected...and that's saying a lot! Unfortunately, the matching hat was squashed by an unexpected octopus.
Should cephalopods smell strawberry-ish?
Anyway, I am having trouble becoming accustomed to the train on the dress. All my inquiries for "how to walk in a train" result in travel guides. *sigh*
Buford's box seems to have caused a… Continue

Well last night was certainly eventful at Worlds End. Whilst I was conversing with a few friends and enjoying a cup of tea Captain Edward popped in with a knife in his shoulder. And he didn't even notice. I patched the wound and returned to my conversation with a new friend, Wilhelmina. As we were talking I brought up yesterdays predicament of the melted parts. As it turns out Calcite is rather unstable and does not make a good balancing mechanism for a power matrix.… Continue

Gadgeteers with a drum machine fetish: fear not! This is not a Luddite posting. We are not trying to provoke robot wars or anything like that. We're all about artistic freedom and the creative use of technology.
We just want to encourage folks to keep vintage music aesthetics vital by continuing to support bands that use live drummers and real old school beats like waltz and swing. Now that these rhythms are largely absent from… Continue

Over New Years 2008, my friend Max
was in Japan and purchased a pair of Tanaka Single Action Army airsoft Peacemakers, one for me and another for him. It took several months for the pistols to clear customs and arrive in the mail but, once I had the pistol in my hands, I immediatelybegan my search for some walnut grips. This was also the foundation of my Steampunk costume as, at the time, I had only started thinking about fleshing that… Continue

We've made the time jump and are making good time towards the north pole. We've just passed Japan, and should reach the Arctic circle in a day, however I am not expecting the winds at the top of the world to be either favoring or helpful.
I've been thinking about the creature all day. He has lived for… Continue

It's been nearly six months since Julien stopped visiting. Nearly six months since his watch stopped. But it has also been almost three months since I first visited that gathering of wanderers though the portal I found amongst his things. I've learned a lot in the last three months. Enough to know that when a Time Traveler goes missing it is not something to be ignored. I've kept my husbands secret. I promised him I would not tell anyone. I have been making fast friends… Continue

Like a good Captain, I ordered Little Darling to try to fix the Sir. Ryan's bald chicken... In her defense she did try, she poured hair tonic on him... she couldn't find feather tonic... as a result Sir. Jonathan is now a furry chicken... could be worse... it could have been scale tonic.
Anyhow... I have considered popping… Continue

I visited my good friend Taeka today in his lab in New York City. Although he is a pygmy, he has adapted quite well to life in the United States and is preparing to conduct an experiment on a new machine in his lab. I thought he'd lost his gourd when he told me he'd invented a new type of watch; a watch that will change my life he said.
He was right. And now I'm stuck here in a time I am unfamiliar with. I have hold of the watch, a pocket watch… Continue

A young man sat on the velvet covered chair waiting for the woman across from him to settle herself. She seemed very agitated and he knew it was only under coercion that she was even here. She set her tea cup aside and sighed. He smiled reassuringly. “Are you ready to tell your story?”
“No but I will begin though it will take some time I assure you. I suppose I ought to begin my tale by explaining how I… Continue

When I was a wee lad, there was a series of Wild West action figure toys produced by Marx. These hard plastic, somewhat poseable action figures were available at a crucial time in my development: when I was first watching John Wayne movies with my grandfather, and watching the original Wild Wild West with my father. I owned several of these figures (a perk of being the only child at the time), but my all time favorite of the mix was the bad guy, Sam Cobra.… Continue

We returned to Coppersteam at once and made straight for the lab. I burst through the doors, cutlasses drawn and came face to face with the intruder... a chicken... wearing a bowler... and a monocle... pecking at my vortex combobulator. Now I've seen stranger things, but this was quite queer. I shooed the thing away from my device,… Continue

Sipping my breakfast tea, a friend ten thousand miles away
taps me, back from a shopping trip.
"Look what I found!" she crows:
A dented brass lock, a busted steamer trunk,
old pillowcases, an umbrella skeleton.
"Pay much?" "No!" "Fantastic- major score!"
Lock's on a chatelaine, pillowcases are a vest,
umbrella's bronze, with a window.
The trunk? I don't know yet.

We made it out of Egypt just in time to avoid the museum authorities discovering the sphinx... Although as we were taking off, I could have sworn I heard a distant "What the deuce!" coming from the Necropolis.
Abdullah was overjoyed to see Farouk again. As was Farouk happy to see his simian errand boy. Little Darling reluctantly… Continue
