I am pleased to report that the most lucrative expedition to the mountain caverns of Husbanddeskia have been fruitful!
The ancient Camerakus Battery has been found!
Thanks to all of you who have believed me, even more so to those who funded my expedition and filled it with laughter and excitement. From the first ancient writings removed and cataloged, to the most worthless piece of dust that was cleared away.
When fighting evil it's usually a great challenge to convey many different forms of evil, there are grey elements even to the casue of a monster. Great amd small, the challenge is to convey their role and function in a universe that titters on a very fine balance. Each monster must serve a purpose, a role. It's not…
If nineteenth-century Iranian women discovered time travel, where would they go? What would they bring back?
Photographer Shadi Ghadirian did not have these questions in mind, persay, but she is interested in how the Western world perceives Iranian woman like herself. In her photography series "Qajar," she brings out the cognitive dissonance that someone unfamiliar with Iran may experience, as well as comments about the position of women in society… Continue
The current war fought in Libya in these days is drawing attention on that country and its history. This article is about the history of Libya from ancient times until World War II.
Only in recent times has the term "Libya" been in use, indicating the territories between Tunisia and Egypt; before its colonization, the area was called Tripolitania and Cyrenaica, two territories that had a separate historic development for centuries.…
As many know and some who may not know, Secondlife has been one of the top multimedia social platform since it's release in June of 2003. It's said that people can reinvent themselves, discover dreams, play games, and of course, make a little money. You want it, SL has it! So why would it be such a shock to have such a fun, fantastical steampunk desert world? Personally, it's the infamous world of the “Sims” on steroids of amazing measure.
For Tết (Vietnamese Lunar New Year), I'm spending the day with my family (and getting in gear for TempleCon.) But I wanted to leave a little note for today to those who celebrate Lunar New Year's in any manner.
Most people would recognize that today is Chinese New Year, and that it is the Year of the Metal Rabbit.
For the Vietnamese, however, Feb 2nd was the start of our New Year, the Year of the Metal Cat.
For the last post of the year, I'm enjoying a post-holiday recoup and a some good steampunky links. Featuring some oldies but goodies, great vids, the launch of SteamCast in Brazil, and pretty steampunk art after the jump.
For a "Steam Tourist", (I intend to be much more) I find it a bit intimidating to be amongst so many stellar people all dedicated to what they love! The knowledge they have amassed, the life they now live inside this beautiful dimension is something I strive for, but sometimes felt destined to fail. Then I received an invite from a group called "The Cog of Acceptance"! Well, the name, and description of said group re-newed my hope of acceptance and inclusion…Continue
In this clean world of class, imagination and hope I come. I've seen what this world looks like! Like a kid, I am instantly enthralled. "What a cool world. Such amazing people. I got to be thee!" So, I look further! Steampunk comes from a comic book? Maybe I shouldn't have been reading Legion of Super Heros, or Avengers because I missed something. Yes, even at 44 years young, my imagination ravenously… Continue
I don't know how many people are following what is going on with a film called "Iron Sky", but I beleive they stated shooting yesterday. "Iron sky" has an alternate history storyline with the Nazi fleeing to the moon in flying saucers at the end of WWII. They rebuild and return to take over the Earth in 2018. This has a definate steampunk feel to it, though it is clearly not Victorian steampunk. For more information check the Iron Sky site www.ironsky.net or… Continue
