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
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!
