I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

A Birthday Extravaganza: Jules Verne and 20,000 Leagues
It's my birthday!
To celebrate, I'm kicking off a week of Jules Verne and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea themed Steampunk Home posts! (My gift to you.)
I've got houses and rooms galore inspired by Verne's 20,000 Leagues (and the ensuing Disney movie and ride), shopping lists of things to build or buy to get that 20,000 Leagues look, and some links to other resources to inspire you.
To go along with our visual feast, here is the whole book, online.
What's that? What could you do to help celebrate? Why don't you drop a short note in the comments to this post -- tell me where you're reading from, perhaps -- to make me feel all warm and fuzzy.

A birthday extravaganza is a great way to celebrate , I remember some years ago when I made a party with I friend who works in genericviagra and we did a lot of stupid and crazy things.
I agree with you because I consider that Verne is so good, I also would be really inspired by this man, actually I'll do a work called pharmacy, I know It'll be a total success and a lot of people will read it.
I was interested read this post.
