It looks as if last weekend’s Watch City Festival was splendid. This weekend, it’s on to the Steampunk World’s Fair!

If you’re attending these festivals and looking for something to wear, Kate Beaton has a vintage photograph of a man dressed like “a side of bacon.” He was a hipster before he knew it.

Also hipster, but in the most wonderful way possible, is ~Flow, “electro-acoustic musical machinery powered by the River Tyne.” Very impressive, and beautiful as well.

I found ~Flow via BLDGBLOG, which also has a fantastic entry on New York City’s quarries of yesteryear.

In related rock-smashing news, the Daily Mash has reassured us that the dramatic increase in potential fracking activity will cause only a 30% chance of awakening Cthulhu. Don’t you feel better? Er...hello?
