Is it just me or does the grasshopper on top of this work of genius look like it was designed by H.G. Giger?



And yes, I'm posting this in spite of my renewed vow to expunge Posthuman Blues of all things steampunk. Some things are just too cool to pass up.

Hey, nothing wrong with steampunk-related posts, as long as they're good ones. It is, after all, your blog to do with what you see fit.

Having said that, though, I don't see this post as having steampunk connotations at all, as the term is generally defined. I see this as more like... chronopunk!

What did Steampunk ever do to you?

Bsti said...

Seriously. I want to know what you find wrong with it that you'd avoid posting anything about it.

It's not that I find anything remotely "wrong" with steampunk; it's just that it's fast becoming something of a cliche. It seems to be losing some of its original imaginative, er, "steam."
