I dreamt of incredible things.
To my knowledge this has already made the rounds, but I felt it was worth reposting just because of the amazingness. Our dear BB caught at bit of the tip.

Though I may catch some flack for this, Steampunk does not represent either a movement, nor truly an aesthetic ideal. Rather, it performs brilliantly as a guiding principle. I will posit that Steampunk (however you want to define it),acts more so as a renunciation of ideals. Let the imperfection flow! This is what and who we are! Those who are old enough will remember the Labor disputes that led to the initial punk (oh yes, those wankers were pure ???) As a society, let’s focus on creation. It doesn’t have to be perfect; it doesn’t even have to be as good as this. Can we please have a playground where doing something is better than doing nothing?
Let’s be a kid for a bit.
