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.

Clock Tower Apartment
Laurie sent me this NY Times slideshow about an apartment at the top of a clock tower. Yes, those are working clocks.
Don't you wish you had an extra $25 million lying around?
