A fiddler tunes. A woman on upright bass stretches her hands. The banjoist adjusts his strap while the mandolinist takes a drink. In this moment before a song, the possibilities of sound are only as limited as the experience and the vision of the artists onstage.

Clockworks General life update: A couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend and I broke up, which was followed by the Thanksgiving holidays and a bunch of social obligations and some post break up drinking/socializing, which was followed by some post drinking/socializing getting incredibly sick last week, which was followed by a bit more ex relationship drama and then some drinking/socializing last weekend. Oh and I have a mountain of work I need to get done in the next two weeks.
A steampunk-themed photo "Maison tournante aérienne" (aerial rotating house) by Albert Robida for his book Le Vingtième Siècle, a 19th-century conception of life in the 20th century Steampunk also refers to any of the artistic styles, clothing fashions, or subcultures, that have developed from the aesthetics of steampunk fiction, Victorian-era fiction, art nouveau design, and films from the mid-20th century. Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by individual artisans into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical "steampunk" style, and a number of visual and musical artists have been described as steampunk.
