The legendary laboratory where the Steampunk's RL icon did his amazing and under-appreciated experiments, Wardenclyffe, has been purchased for a bit under one million dollars, and will become the Tesla Science Center! Quite heartening to know this amazing property which houses the Legend's unfinished masterpiece will be restored to its original glory - but enough of my prattling about it (as I'll go on for much too long)... the links for the stories can be found below -

Came across this nice bit about personaliation of an inexpensive clock - a simple project (which even I could do), but will allow one to easily add a touch of Steampunk panache to one's interior decor - and it would also be a useful addition! My thanks to Ms. Luisa Diaz for posting this nice work, and please do enjoy!

Collage of Ms. L. Collins and the cover of PP&Z, court. of Variety Magazine
It appears the on-again-off-again cinematograph production of Pride and Predjudice and Zombies is back on, with a new leading lady, Miss Lilly Collins, who will be in the leading roll of Miss Elizabeth Bennett. Originally scheduled with Miss Natalie Portman, issues with the script led to conflicts with the actor's schedules, and the production resided in "production hell". However, there is hope with a new leading lady, eliminating a multitude of undead! For more details, please visit:

Although I was never bitten by the card-game bug, a unique game based on the story by Mr. Neil Gaiman, A Study in Emerald,(a Lovecraft-meets-Holmes work) is currenlty undergoing production, and as it is on Kickstarter, it does seek your help. At the risk of mincing the original words towards its production, I do direct one to visit either their Kickstarter location, or pay a visit to Treefrog Games narrative of the game, located at: http://www.treefroggames.com/print/study-in-emerald-overview.pdf - do enjoy!

I09 currently has a nice reivew of a number of Steampunk-themed locations, located here: http://io9.com/grand-steampunk-homes-and-businesses-straight-from-the-476668111 . Though many have been noted in the Tribune in the past, its intriguing to see their current status (simply ignore the troll-esque pebble throwing of the occasional Steampunk-naysayers)! Please do enjoy (and admire wistfully)!

Came across this clever Steampunk Duckling, with nice animatronic action - and better yet, its (currently) available on Esty, at "Oil and Lace"! If this little fellow (fella?) catches your eye do consider a closer look at the storefront, located at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/OilandLace (they also have an elephant just below for sale as well!) Do enjoy!
