1SteamPunks.jpg - 164.75 K

Steam Computer     We took a little trip out to Waltham to check out the Steampunk, Form & Function show at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation They had all manner of widgets, gadget and items transformed and built to be totally and truly Steampunkified.....my fave was the Steam Punk walker!!! Ah yes when we are in need of a walker we GOTTA do it in style! Excellent!...they had guitars and most amazingly a computer that had a keyboard that looked like an old fashioned turn of the century typewriter that did actually work!! It's a great intro to the whole movement/genre and its creativity and obsessiveness. Lots of fashion too and stuff in the museum store as well.
    While we were there they were having some kind of photo shoot so a ton of SteamPunks showed up dressed to the nines. It s a great show and cool little museum and entry is only $5.00!

    And this week we have a new Journal Entry for the awesome writer, oh and bass player...Rick Coraccio sharing memories of the DMZ recording session which was majorly screwed up (and maybe their futures too!) by that monster storm The Blizzard of '78. (link is also below the news....) This is a must read!! Thanks Rick!

    Per Perry Adler (Thanks Perry!): if you missed the doc "Lemmy" at the Regent Theater you can catch it on VH1 coming up this Friday Feb 11th at 11:30PM http://www.vh1.com/shows/vh1_rock_docs/series.jhtml
