  • Cassette futurism and cyberpunk are basically the same. The only difference is that cyberpunk happend at the time of "cassette futurism" and "cassette futurism" is invented 40 years later.
  • Rather Jugendstil than Art Deco. As a symbol of the symbiosis of nature and technics. Other tropes: - certain historical persons that show up, Lovelace, Tesla and the likes. - sex robots in feminism - automatons (giant) - cyborgs, or party cyborgs.…
  • There are many Facebook groups, but they revolve around cosplay and artifacts mostly. Having said that, I agree Facebook is not any good for propper discussion. Also, I do think steampunk literature never took off, compared to steampunk comics (espe…
  • I never saw steampunk as a movement anyway, just like cyberpunk never was, nor scifi. However, steampunk can be a tool to make a political point by using 19th century examples of life, especially the differences between upperclass and the lower cla…
  • Thanks for sharing the lyrics for I couldn't find them
  • And so true the lyrics. Yet for the clip a "Dress vintage Victorian (and call it steampunk)" would also do.
  • There's a lot more steampunk in Holland than you may think, Castlefest will be punked again. But it's useless doing an event with a bit Dutch steampunk literature in Luxemburg.
  • OK, the Dutch I know almost certain won't organize anything at all, because it will be extremely expensive, costs a lot of time, all the good acts are already booked in Luxemburg or elsewhere, there's not enough steampunks to make it worthwhile, we'…
  • Okay, I have to check here: On the Dutch Steamgears forum it has been announced the con will take place in Luxemburg. I understood that Luxemburg was the only place that was confirmed yet, and that confirmation of events in other places is just a m…
  • OK thanks for the info. I'll lobby on. The "rights" question is utterly silly and smallminded.
  • As far as I know, there is a European Steampunk Con discussed on Facebook. I'm not really at ease with the facebook, so I find it hard to discover who is behind that. Is that you guys? https://www.facebook.com/pages/EuroSteamCon/187444791332522 Thei…
  • It largely depends on how aether is used. As far as I'm concerned, it is merely the Greek concept that the universe is filled with aether, which makes it possible to breath outside the sphere of oxigen. And that makes it possible to fly to the moon …
  • Henry Waltz
  • I've contacted friends in the German speaking realms of Europe and told them of this idea.
  • I sure hope you'll get your two front teeth back this christmas! And the loss of wisdom explaines a lot. However, I'll try to get a reaction from other Dutch.
  • Hi there from Holland! As fas as I can see, the Dutch "scene" is large enough to organise things themselves and they hook up with larger fantasy-, goth-, and pagan evenets such as the Elf Fantasy Fair (which hosted a "steampunk camp&…
  • It's got nothing to do with steampunk anymore. I mean,get close to an engine and there'll be grease, soot an oil all over these clothes. Just another "look, goggles! we're steampunk!!1!!11" thing. colors remind me of this

  • I still don't understand why an outfit should be steampunk. It can be in steampunk style, but how you dress has nothing to do with steampunk. Which is proven by all steampunk inspired garments in regular clothing shops: it's not just steampunks who …
  • 1) Name (or pseudonym) and Country Jack from The Netherlands 2) What first drew you to steampunk? Art (most notably paintings, literature, and architecture) and technology from the nineteenth centrury, which I gave my own twist. Later I discover…
  • No, wha I tried to say in a more positive way is: If university is at this level, who needs Kindergarten?
  • Uni student? Wat's that? Have you ever done any research? For steampunk, a lot of fans are older than 30, so putting "30 or older" in the questionair means you have done no pre-research whatsoever on the subject. If this research is suppos…
  • Wouldn't you be intrested in the fact wether someone aged x, gender z and education a is actually interested in (yet another) steampunk magazine, and what they want to see in it? If it's all about "How to make your own steampunk..." I woul…
  • It's more like dieselpunk with nazi-mystics mixed, I have the impression.
  • Since The Great Race is rated "Steampunk" one can easily say steampunk has lost a hero.
  • While experimenting the implementation of Twitter on normal HTML pages, I joined, found a missing link and now Twitter is in my Livejournal so it's easy updating and no one bothers it's only 140 $chars long
  • House of fun > Happy House: Siouxsie & the Banshees (same era too) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeBMHnJqAvM EDIT: Please mention name of artist + title of song Some will be deleted on the youtube, as happened with Jacs link.
  • I wasn't very pleased with it.
  • (Quote) On the other hand, there are many people who sincerely do have the opinion Wells, Verne, c.s., actually wrote steampunk literature. They did not. Yes, they have been inspiration to many a steampunk, but they never ever wrote a single word of…
  • I fully agree with mr Reeve. Especially when considering some other utherings. Steampunk had gone far beyond the point it was a fun alternative to contemporary cyberpunk (back in the good old... 20 years ago). It's a shame it hasn't moved onward si…
  • Not a lot of responses. Is this not a kind of movie that's interesting for those who like steampunk? If so, why not?
