gshepnyc: I know people are weary of steampunk but I don't find it anymore tiresome than that heavily armored supersoldier aesthetic that comes out of gaming and animation, the one with gigantic feet and legs and head hidden between armored shoulders and always carrying a cannon for a gun or a sword with a blade the size of a surfboard. Sick to death of that.
Theory Of Null: I'm still waiting for Lazypunk to take hold. It's where you just wear whatever is comfortable and doesn't smell too bad.
SlothB77: [ww4.hdnux.com image 334x471]i don't really see myself wearing this in public.
Burr: [upload.wikimedia.org image 248x300]What happens when you cross Steampunk with Tolkien.Granted, it was a buggy game(taken care of by patches later), but it was still fun./My dwarf has a top hat that deflects bullets and arrows, an electric sword, an electric shied that disrupts magic, armor powered by a small engine, and a mechanical spider that heals him.//Take that you sissy elves

hervatski: Please God no
tom baker's scarf: i liked the steam punk ascetic a lot more a few years ago and even then more for the redesign of objects more than clothing. now it seems to be a competition to see who can glue the most random crap on to their clothes or person. some of those people looked more like first generation borgs than anything else.
StrangeQ: What if the Victorians had access to digital technology?Steampunk is stupid because the very premise of it makes absolutely no sense. You're not going to make a farking microcircuit out of brass, polished wood and patent leather. The very technologies that make the modern world possible are exactly the same ones the ones in steampunk obsolete and rediculous.First world hipster problems:Oh woe is me, where will I ever find wood with the proper brain and texture for my retro-chic laptop?[needsmoresteam.com image 850x842]Real world problems:I wonder if I can eat wood? Could it be food?[www.rescue.org image 562x374]
