The Nerd Lunch Christmas Eve ‘Oh No! I forgot to get ‘so-and-so’ a Gift!’ Guide

By | 2017-03-28T17:33:49+00:00 December 24th, 2013|Categories: Article|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

It's Christmas Eve as I write this and you are probably all done with your shopping and wrapping. But in this age of friendships with people we've never met from all over the world, there might be that one person you didn't realize was getting you a gift. Or someone just slipped through the cracks [...]

Nerd Cavalcade of Lunch Awesome, part 2

By | 2017-03-17T00:52:51+00:00 July 21st, 2011|Categories: Article|Tags: , , |0 Comments

Between Paxton Holley over at The Cavalcade of Awesome and myself, it's possible we've written more about our visit to the Tallahassee Antique Auto Museum than any visitors have ever written before. I could be wrong though. On Monday, Paxton gave a thorough review of the cars in the museum. I followed up on Tuesday [...]

Walrusboy II: The Golden Disappointment

Story:The plot for Hellboy II was derivative and had a change in tone from the first movie that I wasn't too keen on. The movie opens with the set up for "The Golden Army" that has a backstory very reminiscent of The Lord of the Rings. I could get past that, but then the movie [...]

Pesky Steambugs

While bugs might not be so annoying if they ran on steam, something like this just seems to be asking for trouble. Using bug parts and various other pieces to create a cyborg-insect, Steampunk-style is almost worse that what would happen if monkeys and dolphins teamed up to destroy mankind.But Mike Libby has decided to [...]

Steam-operated Death Star

I just ran across another site that's got some art doing Star Wars, Steam-style. These are illustrations done by a guy named Eric Poulton. Looks like there's some neat stuff on the blog as a whole, but what really caught my eye was the Death Star.I'd love to see a really good direct-to-DVD animated movie [...]

Steam-operated Lightsaber

Another batch of customized action figures have gotten my attention. And again, these were made by the same guy who did the Victorian-era Justice League figures I referenced awhile back.He's produced a set of Steampunk-style Star Wars action figures. I think my personal favorite is the reinterpretation of C-3PO.I like these mostly for the potential [...]

I finally got around to seeing The Prestige a few weeks back. It came very highly recommended by CT and was also something my wife was interested in seeing, so I was especially excited for movie night. Though as I've mentioned in other reviews, my opinions as of late seem to be more affected by [...]

Steam-operated Trouble Alert

I've seem three different sites I frequent reference these custom action figures. I thought I'd bring them up here. Nice design of a Victorian-era Justice League. Takes the Gotham by Gaslight concept and stretches it out to the entire League. A story based on these characters would be great.I just mentioned this to PLee the [...]

Oddly Shaped Dice: The Steampunk One-Shot

By | 2017-03-17T01:04:51+00:00 November 6th, 2007|Categories: Article|Tags: , |2 Comments

All this talk about steampunk has me thinking about some of the ideas I’ve kicked around for a Victorian Era RPG one-shot. 1. Here’s the thing about the movie version of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: it was a lousy movie and it would be an awesome RPG...much better for that purpose than the original graphic [...]

The League of Extraordinary Pac-Gentlemen

We don't often discuss art per se on this blog, but it seems that a wacky artist named Doktor_A has created something right in our collective wheelhouse. Behold the steam punk version of Pac-Man, "Pac Gentleman".I would sugest that the Nautilus in LXG might have had a whole parlor full of these for Nemo's entertainment, [...]
