Would YOU live in a steampunk universe if you could?

Started Oct 30 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

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.

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

An explanation of face masks, and their ratings.

Posted on July 6, 2020 at 7:05am 0 Comments

      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…

Further coincidences from the CR&A universe.

      Yet more coincidences relating to the character of Adele Calloway, her name, and fictional family.

      I'll point out once more that the name "Adele Calloway" simply popped into my head one day, in November of 2012.

      Just now, I decided to look up the name Calloway.  It turns out to be not terribly uncommon in Texas, where Adele is from.  There are a number of place names, and business names containing Calloway, and it is also the name of an early community…
