Steam Punk
« on: February 22, 2010, 02:49:37 PM »

So Steam Punk has hit North Carolina (although it hit Ohio few years back)

Whats everyone think about Steam Punk? The music, the clothing, books, Movies, arts, the entire thing?

Anyone partake in this new fad?

as far as Im concerned, steam punk is a literature genre. never heard that about music. I hate people labelling bands and music. I even clicked here thinking this was a thread about the literature.

I also clicked on this thread, thinking it was going to be about books (possibly movies too) and was so confused by the mention of music. That's so weird to me.
I also was about to post the link to the wikipedia article.
So basically I have nothing to contribute now, besides a general "huh? steampunk music? wha?" :)

Does anyone have any book to recommend? I've read only a few comics, never a book. They are pretty hard to find around here.
