Steampunk historical occurrence, EVER! The "Neverwas Haul" breaks down and gets towed by the "Kinetic Steamworks" 45HP tractor!The single most |
Shit like this only happens in fairy tales...or at Burningman
Yeah, that was one of the coolest things I've seen on the playa... Personally, I thought it was better than the waffle, but I'm biased. My favorite is still Apollo by day and dionisis by night.
The waffle was good on many levels and I must give them mad props for their efforts and their statement.
But, yeah, "Fucking Cool!" award goes to KSW and Neverwas
I saw both separately in passing, didn't get to play with either, and still jonzing to do both. I don't know if I'll be on the Playa this year, but I'll do my best.
Viva La Steampunk!!!
My lady fiend helped with Neverwas. I'm steampunk by proxy ;-)
Yeah, confession, I find steampunk sexy, but what do you expect? I'm an ecclectic geek, I can't help it.
P.S. At the Crucible's Fire Show Fund Raiser last year, I screwed up my ankle when I heard the roar of the steam engine full bore and the whistle blowing. I heard 'em, squealled with delight, started running in the direction of the sounds, tripped over some cables in the dark, and went down like a shot deer. The hula-hooping teddy bear on rollerblades thought he was the one who tripped me up.
So, steam is sexy...I have believed so since I was a kid infatuated with steam trains. Poking around on the net has given me freedom to unleash some ideas...
Anything that starts with a wood fire, moves to pumping pistons, and ends steam, grimy, and wet, is a good time in my book.
