In that case, I must be really cool looking, cause I look really, really old! affraid

Great pipe. I'll bet it would be moderately easy to clean, as you can get at it from all ends and angles.

Wow, I feel really old. I only "discovered" steam punk as a genre last month when I was on ETSY looking for a Valentine's gift.
However, a series of novels I read a couple years ago called "The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters" seem kinda steam punk-ish in retrospect. Anyone read any of those?

Who's the author? Are they any good?
Back when steampunk meant guys building stuff like this:...I could appreciate the artistry and imagination. Nowadays, kids'll just glue some gears on a top hat and call it good.


Come to think of it, this would be the perfect time and place to bid farewell to my signature pic/former avatar. I think he's outlived his usefulness. Everyone say goodbye to Lord Coxwain.


(That was really just a painting of Dr.T999 anyway, back in his cosplay days. Razz )

Yeah, they're pretty good, written byGordon Dahlquist. I would recommend them if you're a fan of mildly erotic sci/fi Victoriana, and really, who isn't?
Am I right?

My wife loves this crap. I consider it to be the modern equivalent of going into a gypsy encampment on the edge of town looking through other peoples stolen garbage.

Our humble community of Virginia City, because of the era in which it helped glorify, has several steampunk gatherings every year. People mill about the town, a tourist trap if there ever was one, after the stores close and so everything from live-action role playing games to just sit around and talk and gawk at the festive styling of other folks. Kind of cool, really. It'd take a lot of time, effort and money to "do it right," and it'd be a fun hobby I suppose, but I just don't have time. The concept is great, though: any flavor of sci-fi is a-okay with me. Cool

I love Steampunk themed Items. This pipe is pretty neat looking. Looks like it stepped right out of a Jules Verne novel.

Hey, Dottleman! It's been a while. Good to hear from you. This post was looking a bit like your avatar. Razz

Nope. Too many ex-girlfriends in Deadbored. I avoid the place. Plus, staempunk's become a bit too much of a cosplay thing for my taste. To quote The Guild, "It's steampunk, the Euro-trash of nerd-dom." Razz (S5 Ep4, 5:54)
