  1. I'm guess I'm kinda Steampunk. After all, I love E.A. Poe and Dickens, have seen a lot of those movies (including "Van Helsing". Blech.) Though personally, think I lean towards Gothic/Dark Victorian over Steampunk/Industrial Victorian.

  2. I lean toward Mr Rogers on crack.

    I could see that. More Dark Shadows and less Wild Wild West.

  7. I know what you mean, Barry. I used to wear Victorian clothing and jewelry and make my skin as pale as it could get. I wanted to look like I came from another era. The gadget thing--well I still have a box of parts I've collected over the years. I have no idea what to do with it, but I'm thinking I might solder together some kind of piece of art piece for a wall hanging or something.

  8. I do like many of those things so I must be steampunk or close to it.

  11. I loves me some Steampunk, and I've always had the urge to dres up like a Victorian era gentleman / adventurer long before I even knew it was a genre.

    I have pics of me in college when all I wore was safari clothes. I wanted a pith helmet so much and majored in archaeology for a time.
