Hej, Polsko Steampunks

Jak dowiedzieliśmy sie niedawno, Steampunk jest bardzo EDIT: popularny w Polsce (was, erroniously: popularna w Polska). And because I do not speak Polish (except for a few things like “dzień dobry” and “Piwo prosze”) I had to use Google Translate to get the title and the first sentence. I appologize …

Too hot to blog

It is really rather hot today.  Summer has finally arrived here – with a vengeance. So I cannot really spend much time on my blog. Later on, I shall also see if maybe a lion or a widebeest can be spotted on the horizon, during sunset… You know the kind …

Steampunk Apparel Sale!

We interrupt our regular program for a quick commercial break: My friend Anda, I featured her before, is having a sale at her Etsy shop, over here. Just let me quickly remind you of the quality of her work with a few exampes of her craftswomanship: Right now, she is …

Abe Lincoln with Assault Rifle on Grizzly

Personally  I think the politicans of the recent decades lack a certain something. But then maybe the presidents we consider heroic and badass today were just regular guys and acquired an aura of the superhuman through the course of history. Well, recently I came across the marvelous artwork of SharpWriter …

Space 1889 the Series

Back in the late 1980’s when I first regularly delved into the vast multiverse of Role Playing Games I came across Space 1889. It then held little interest for me. I was predominantly into Shadowrun (First Edition) and Dungeons & Dragons (the original boxed sets which went up to level …

And …

The project in question is Æther Dancer, an independent production by a crew based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. But …

TGIF and Fun on Friday

Well, it has been a while since I stated this but today I exclaim: TGIF! And since we all need to have a laugh once in a while I thought I share this little geeky gem with you: Roll a D6 from Connor Anderson on Vimeo. Yes, some role players …

Inspirational Art

Another find from the ætherweb. I have no idea who the artist is, I take no credit for it and if somebody knows, I am happy to provide a link to the artist’s site. This piece of photographic art is only marginally steampunk, at least there are very beautiful old …

An Unnameable Thing in my Basement – Cthulhu Sketch!

It is really weird, almost eldritch, where the Cthulhu Mythos kreeps p these days. The more you look around, the more obvious it becomes: The Mythos is everywhere! The Stars Are Almost Right! So this time, the Mythos has made it into a mainstrem Scottish comedy program I had never …
