Musings from a travelling Steampunk

Steampunk Jump’n Run

| 6. Februar 2010

Just a quick entry, because I will not have time for more today: There is a iPod game comming up, already free for Mac, that has a cool retro and steampunk feel to it. Steampunk because of the obvious aesthetics and retro because it looks so much like a classic Jump’n Run from the C64 […]

Sherlock Holmes Evening

| 5. Februar 2010

Right then… A Steampunk should always grasp an opportunity to attend or participate in cultural events which fit the genre and so I did…  (I seldom get the opportunity anyway these days, I guess the people 120 years ago had it easier) Sherlock Holmes seems to be all the rage these, there’s a new movie […]

The Hat Issue

| 4. Februar 2010

I ask myself: Shall I get a hat? I’ve got two steamy caps (one of them a flyer’s cap) but they are only good for the colder part of the year. The question is, shall I get a steampunky hat for the summer? I’ve got an Australian (or very likely fake-Australian) bush hat but since […]

Steampunk and Dieselpunk images

| 3. Februar 2010

Two images I simply had to share, they are too cool to pass by. The first one is supposedly pre-Great War but I am somewhat unsure about this. It is very steampunk, though The second one is just one great poster motive for fighting nerds. It basically says „This happens when Tesla goes bad“. So […]

Riese the Series Chapter Two starts tomorrow

| 31. Januar 2010

Oh joy! Tomorrow (judged by CET standards) the next chapter of Riese the Series will be released on their website and on Youtube (and a few other platforms). For me this means that when I get up tomorrow at around six in the morning, by the time I am finished with my breakfast I will […]

Steampunk and the Supernatural

| 30. Januar 2010

The classical Steampunk era,  i.e. when the grand old masters were still around (the lifetimes of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells etc.), also featured a lot of then-contemporary authors who wrote about supernatural occurences. Dracula and Frankenstein comes to mind. Now, what I have found so far, although most Steampuks would not deny the influence of […]

Public Service Announcement

| 29. Januar 2010

Right, for a number of reasons I have decided to do a little bit more Steampunk related things in German. I have therefor started another blog (in German) which, unsurprisingly, is also named Daily Steampunk. The Blog can be seen here Daily Steampunk auf Deutsch. It is not much yet, just one post and I […]

In all these cases, there is hope for you (yes, YOU!).  Clickon the Wondermark Fiction Generator Logo […]

US Spy Blimp

| 27. Januar 2010

According to various sources, the US military plans to deploy a high-altitude spy blimp for missions you need a spy-blimp for… As a Zeppelin Enthusiast™ I am looking forward to it and am quite excited about it. As a military ley person, I ask myself: What can this expensive piece of equipment do that satellites […]
