It is International Dieselpunk Day

Today is November 11th, Armistice Day. The armistice of the Great War also marks the historic (if you want to call it that…) divide between Steampunk and Dieselpunk, so, as of today, November 11th is also International Dieselpunk Day and 2012 is the first time, it is celebrated.

Rather unfortunately, I was unable to organise anything around here. At least I have been in touch with my friends around the globe who have done a lot, and I mean a lot!

My friend Mark of Escape the Clouds fame for example, has released this sampler for the occasion:

How many degrees of excellent is that?
And, in Latin America (especially Mexico) has been very active getting things under way, I just hope there will be updates on the usual group pages. All I can do now is wish everybody involved a most excellent International Dieselpunk Day!
