We may get up to five inches of rain before tomorrow night. Where's Captain Nemo when you need him?
If you're tired of scouring eBay looking for steampunky bits, worry no more - Buy Steampunkwill come to your aid! (I continue to be amazed at just how much stuff you can buy these days. Back in ye olden times before steampunk got so popular, we made things ourselves. Hey! You urchins! Get off my lawn!)
And finally, if you can't dress like it's 1880 every day, perhaps you can wear a t-shirt evoking those days. Well, sort of. What's the Victorian equivalent of "In Your Eyes," anyway? (Threadless is having a clearance sale this week, and nearly all of their shirts are awesome.)
The steampunk link of the week is, of course, the beautiful Mac Mini that was customized as a wedding gift. It's beautiful, and the "lid" design is one of my favorite parts! Apple should look into that as a retro logo.
I had read bits and pieces of a pneumatic travel system in the 19th century, but the wonderful Damn Interesting has consolidated the parts into a fantastic article on New York City's pneumatic transit system of the 1870s. I envy the people who had the chance to try it out!
Mounted trophies from hunting expeditions are very Victorian. So it would make sense that neo-Victorians would have robotic trophies, wouldn't it? Much more technologically advanced, and much more humane!
