The Crossroads of the Aether
Yeah, I haven't done much here in awhile. I'm not much for 'blogging', in the sense of just blowing out my opinions, but this entry has some of that.
First off, Steampunk and Weird West. Well, as I see it, not all Weird West is Steampunk, and all Steampunk is certainly NOT Weird West. BUT, if a steampunk story takes place in the wild west, it pretty much qualifies as 'weird' west. Whew. Finally got that said. Now for the next point...

The main disadvantage about living so far from one’s extended family is that one only finds themselves seldom in the company of those they feel no connection to. I, at the present, hardly have a social life outside of those I care about. To some, that’s preferable. To me, that can feel dreadfully dull.
Could I please, please, be invited out by a group that can hardly hide their contempt for me? Those who only keep me about out of courtesy or some hidden benefit?
From the logs of R. Brawne, Captain of the Othello:
We had heard the rumours of the fantastic wealth being found across the Vast in those wild lands we call Eternus. Unlike our homelands of Airethe, that expanse of wilderness is virtually unsettled by man or beast but is host to strange folk and their most unusual ways.…Continue

My Favorite Steampunk Moving Pictures
Of course, I know what I consider to be Steampunk/Dieselpunk may not be by others, but I do know that The Wild, Wild West has been featured in a Steampunk book compendium. I also know that both Tai Chi movies are Asian Steampunk, in this case, Chinese. I highly recommend those on both the Animated and Live Action lists, though the two on my third list are maybes. I really love Edgar Rice Burroughs and have read all of the…

It's probably the most difficult but most fun process of the entire Mrs. E production for me. Whilst I am no George Lucas, composoting the actors to virtual worlds is fun process, especially if they have a presence about them as Rachel Bush does. For those of you wondering what I have been using, it…Continue

Starting in November of 2007 and continuing until July of 2010, I was involved in a Deadlands role playing game. It was this game that prompted me to extend my steampunk experience beyond merely reading the literature and begin dressing the part.
Additionally, I decided that I would chronicle the game as a writing exercise. I didn’t want to write in the third person so that I could practice writing in the…Continue

Good day to all you lovely steampunk people! I'd like to introduce myself to you all.
Born in Nebraska and still living there despite numerous forays elsewhere, I have a house, an adorable Basset Hound named Erasmus, a black belt in Shinkendo (Japanese sword-fighting), and seven years' experience teaching college-level composition. I've worked as a TV talent on an English-teaching program, laid concrete, hiked on the Appalachian Trail, and recorded a music album with my…Continue
Well it's been a heck of a busy weekend and today shows no means of slowing down. We've started our meme campaign for the series with the many faces of Mrs. E campaign.

It's never easy finding the perfect location for what you hope to be iconic. Our Costume director, Casey July may well have found it, if these images are anything to go by, the Tea Room at the center of reality will certainly be colorful and memorable, and come on guys if we get this place, you have to…Continue
