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.

That is a fruit fucker.
This is indeed a Penny Arcade character. Penny Arcade is a very popular webcomic. They've also released two games that are *very* Steampunk in nature. The games are called "On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness." Episodes 1 and 2 have been released so far, and I recommend them to Steampunk fans.
