Burning Man is underway, and once again I am not there. However, there's a staggering amount of stuff going on there; the steampunk-inclined can check out camps like the Bomb Bay Tea Camp, while the absurdists can visit the Shrine to the Oven Mitt. If you're over in England, keep your eye on what's going to happen in Liverpool next week; it's from the same people who brought you the Telectroscope, so you know it's going to be amazing. (I can't wait to find out what it is!)

IndyMogul has gotten in on the steampunk craze, showing you how to make goggles for under $10 in their latest episode. (Thanks, Bunny!)

Cassandra sent in this great post about 1888 last week, and I forgot to post it. It's still good!

Many thanks to Joseph, who came to visit us and brought along a box of Steampunk miniatures. I had no idea these even existed.

If you remember the wacky invention link I posted last week, you might ace the quiz from the BBC. (If not, try it anyway.)

Current reading news: Issue 2 of the Gatehouse Gazette is out! Future reading news: SteamPunk Live!: A Retrofuturist Dream is coming in November. Ooooh. Ahhhh.

Very interesting quiz. I knew what 7 of them were. The pile medicine applicator irritated me. (HAHA) I had no idea its purpose. Wow.
