Steampunk and Its Props

Posted by Norman Hugh Redington on November 10, 2014 at 9:55pm 0 Comments

Is this video Steampunk? It has punks, though it lacks steam (and the ending is maybe a bit saccharine). It has famous and much-banned music: the anthem of German revolutionaries from the Sixteenth Century peasant revolts until the anti-Nazi resistance. Is Steampunk about dressing up like Jules Verne characters, or about seeing the continuity between past, present, and alternate worlds? Does Steampunk require props?

"   This looks vaguely familiar. You might try http://thesteampunkempire.com. Big site with 18,000+ members, but if I saw it, that was where. If I run across it again, I'll drop you a line."
