I spent last Saturday eve at The Rock Room in the Polish Hill section of Pittsburgh seeing Patricia Wake perform live, it was a great set and for those of you who weren't able to make it (Woodssteam are you reading? LOL) here is what you may have missed...

While her music should not be pigeon-holed into any one genre she certainly has a flair for the antiquity... I'm sure Patricia will be happy to update us on any upcomming performances and it would be wonderful to see more folks from this board come out to support her!

Good eve to all! Does anyone know of a good source of phrases or dialect or sayings in Victorian speech to reference for "talking like a steampunk"? I love to converse in odd and unique ways and enjoy the entomology of lost conversation... 'most assuredly', 'indubidally' and 'distinguishedly so...' are some of my favorite phrases... just a geek at heart throwin' this out...

Hello all, haven't posted on here yet so there's a first time for everything...
I have been trolling the interwebs as of recently and have been trying to find some musical persuasions leaning toward steampunkery... thanks to the Myspace page of Mr. Arm I discovered a wonderful little duo called Creature Feature. I also stumbled across the fanaticism of Dr. Steel. Of course most all know of Abney Park as THE (supposed) Steampunk band extraordinaire... Has anyone else found interesting music to accommodate the genre?

Dear Everyone,
I am no longer in Pittsburgh. I've graduated from CMU and am set to run away overseas next Monday. While I've pretty much ignored you guys aside from approving new members, the community *will* need an active maintainer. If you are interested in taking over the community, please let me know in the comments. Otherwise, I will probably continue to ignore the community and occasionally approve new members.

I was at the Steel City Con this weekend in my steamy finery and garnered the attention of many, including a Mister Scott Simmons who is working to include some steampunk elements into his haunted house: Scarehouse, which has the somewhat dubious distinction of being the "5th best haunted house in America". I thought it would be appropriate to pass on his information to the assemblage as others may in a better position to provide assistance than I am.

Contact him at Scott@scarehouse.com and say that the steampunk at Steel City Con advised you.

Things did get busy, but most importantly, I still needed a couple of people in order to have enough central staff to actually move forward. We got five volunteers and we need more like seven.

In talking to a few people, it looks like there is definite interest in this happening and I was hoping that we could scrape together a couple more people to actually start planning.

I'd like to keep the primary discussion here, but once we have about seven willing volunteers, we will need to move it off of this group.

If you missed the first post:

I proposed coordinating a Steampunk Con here in Pittsburgh in 2010. It would be along the lines of SalonCon, where there would be a mixture of Victoriana and Steampunk. I was considering doing this in Downtown Pittsburgh, but could be convinced to do it elsewhere depending on the availability of "things to do" in that area.

If you're thinking about volunteering to help put together this con, contact me and we can talk.

heretical Jewish group. Bring your best alcohol, drums, songs, magic,
stories and fun people to share with everyone. (This party is 21+.)
