Cup of Brown Joy

If you like tea or steampunk, you’ll like this Prof. Elemental video “Cup of Brown Joy,” beautifully presented on Vimeo (below). If not, you’ll just be confused.

You can downloaded Prof. Elemental’s album “The Indifference Engine” from iTunes. It has a jazzy remix of “Cup of Brown Joy,” plus “Fighting Trousers,” the soundtrack of a video of the same name that he made as a challenge another “chap hopper,” Mr. B. The Gentleman Rhymer.

It’s all explained here.

You can purchased the track to the original “Cup of Brown Joy” directly from Prof. Elemental’s site. He accepts PayPal, which he acknowledges with this email response:

“Thanks everso for your purchase. I promise that the proceeds will be spent on scones and fine hats.”

>Paris fashion finds steampunk

>The article in this weekend’s Wall Street Journal is titled “Paris Finds Its Comfort Zone,” but just take a look at the pictures and you’ll see that what it’s found is…steampunk.

Duster coats that wouldn’t look out of place on Sherlock Holmes; Alice in Wonderland “Mat Hatter” top hats in brown and burgundy; and lace blouses right out of a Goth girl’s closet?

You tell me.

>Food, Fitness, Fashion — and Firearms?

>Some of you know I’ve been having a wonderful time playing around with Steampunk fashion and am looking forward to attending Steamcon in Seattle this fall.

I found myself fascinated by this accessory from Muddy Mountain Pottery — a Raku pottery ray gun with a glass element and clockwork innards.

“Menacing, with delicate precision,” is what the artists call it. It’s intended for display, but wouldn’t it be great with a Firefly-esque Desert Nomad Steampunk costume?

The artists think they got the name Heinlein Hand Howitzer from Denvention Fan Guest of Honor Tom Whitmore, who visited their booth at the WorldCon.
