The Steampunk World

Being the continued explorations of a living steampunk.

The steampunk world is all around us, lying just out of sight, in a continuous thread of steampunk builders and culture that extends from the Victorian era to the present. You'll find no science fiction here: This is real life steampunk.

I went to this vintage video game exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry. It was like mecca... I got to play Space Wars (on a Vectrex, no less...) They had one of each home console ever released, set up to play, so I got to play the japanese precursor to the NES with STREET FIGHTER ONE! Remember wondering why you only saw II? They had a dig-dug cabinet just like mine but it was PRISTINE...

They had old-school games like Adventure all the way up to modern stuff. It was all kids under 12 except me and this old dude with a ponytail and he was playing asteroids and I was playing missle command and we just looked at each other like "yeeeeahhhhhh". You know those kids were cleaning up on Dance Dance Revolution but I went over to the Atari section and I was fuckin' SCHOOLIN those kids at games like "Freeway"... I was all "OH YEAH BITCH! YOU THINK YOU'RE HOT WITH YER PLAYBOX AND YER X-STATION BUT IT'S 1983 NOW, MUTHAFUCKAAAAAAAAA!"
