Steampunk Culture

I understand better than any of you that my introverted being-ness disqualifies me from ever partaking. However it has everything a dork like me appreciates - I mean very much wants to appreciate. And these things can flow in to each other .

We have DIY science and tech projects that can then, in some cases, be used for cosplay.

Ah yes. Cosplay.

And From here it is but a short stroll to some indie music. For example:

I know guys, I know, I am a dork that can't even commit to being a dork.

And Saturday is my day to do the dishes and vaccum the living room and make sure the children are bathed ... all the while listening to commerical radio.

Xavier had that up and I was looking at it. It seems to me that it is a lot more complicated than necessary (example: fashion wise, you'd not need to 'convert' the buttons to push-by-proxt) and a large part of the unit's coolness is related to the swinging lamp arms being used.

Hence, the key is not necessarily being a skilled craftsman (although that will help) but having a keen eye and looking beyond an existing tool's current function.
