I love Steampunk!

No, this is not my "coming out of the closet" plea to someone on MySpace.

I'm talking about this kind of stuff!

Taking real, bleeding edge, gaming XPS type computers and retro-fitting them to be all 1890's Jules Vernish.

The Steampunk Workshop has all sorts of way cool projects that you can do yourself.

Like this steampunk Stratocaster:

There is even a steampunk Batman

I love this shit! This definitely taps into my Victorian era, smoking-jacket, book-lined library, candle-lit, ginormous roaring fireplace, retro sensibilities.

You mean I've been reading this blog all this time and XO doesn't even own a smoking jacket???!!!

*stomps away angrily*

It's hard to get smoking jackets at Wal-Mart these days. Must be a shortage of velveteen.
