Would YOU live in a steampunk universe if you could?

Started Oct 30, 2020 0 Replies

      Just a general question.      The only "rule" is that you can set up that particular universe any way you want, within the broad boundaries of steampunk.      For example, my CR&A universe…Continue

      I suppose Buffalo Bill (William F. Cody) is the person who ties everyone in the title together, so I listed him first.  I believe all of these people qualify for an entry in the…Continue

Programming language question

      OK, so not exactly steampunk, but I've had good results getting answers from other steampunks in the areas of cryptography, botany, and entomology, so I'm giving this a try.      For a good 30+…Continue

Steam Powered Machine list...

    I'm trying to think up a list of steam powered machines that people find interesting, impressive, or fun, to see.   There's a reason, but telling it might be a spoiler.   Anyway, so far I have: …Continue

Profile Information

About you:
I am cautious and suspicious by nature. Also terribly lazy. I spend a great deal of time inside my own head. I believe in Truth, Freedom, Justice, and Hope. I sleep a lot, and that lets me dream.

Since 2012 I have managed to type up several stories which take place in a steampunk universe. I suppose that makes me a writer, but I prefer the term "storyteller". I had some of these tales posted on the old steampunk empire site. I'm not certain what to do about them, at this point.

Just something I found.

      OK, for some reason, I was considering entering a post about how (in the United States) The European Grand Tour evolved into See America due to the onset of WWI.  The Grand Tour was something that only the wealthy could indulge in.  But the war sent thousands or "regular, everyday Americans" to Europe who would otherwise never have gone there.  This reminded me of the song "How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down on the Farm (After They've Seen Paree?)".  When I looked it up, I found this image:…See More

Something from the CR&A universe.

      I don't believe I have any talent when it comes to drawing, but I think I have managed to develop some skills with cobbling together visual images by computer manipulation.  By using this so-called skill, I've made something from the CR&A universe that I've been meaning to for a long time.  It's made using some found images, and various free fonts.  I've uploaded the image full size, so it may look better opened in a separate window.…See More

Would YOU live in a steampunk universe if you could?

      Just a general question.      The only "rule" is that you can set up that particular universe any way you want, within the broad boundaries of steampunk.      For example, my CR&A universe has everything I would need, like electric lights, indoor plumbing, a growing system of roads (some of which are even paved with concrete, while the rest are crushed gravel, and regularly maintained by, you guessed it, steam rollers!), and even clean burning fuel, in the form of plentiful natural…See More

Western Decor (?)

      I've had some serious personal ups and (mainly) downs the past couple of years, but, after a year, I'm finally getting settled into a fairly decent apartment in a brand new building.  I decided to add some touches that may qualify as having a Western flavor.      First, some floor coverings -      These are cowhides, and the center star is made from stitched…See More

Confederate currency mystery solved.

      For a number of reasons (see here), I've been collecting replica Confederate currency for some time.  Most of these bills include pictures of real people, mainly important individuals from general American history, or Confederate leaders of the time.  It wasn't too difficult to identify who they were, except for one of them.…

An explanation of face masks, and their ratings.

Posted on July 6, 2020 at 7:05am 1 Comment

      OK, not very steampunk, but with the current conditions, this may at least be informative for some people.

      Recently, the city council where I live has made the wearing of face masks in retail establishments mandatory.  No definition of what amounts to a 'face mask' was stipulated, so I've been wearing a black bandana so I look like an old west outlaw.   Heh.   But the whole mask business seems to be a big deal, and I've done a fair amount of research into masks as…
