Steampunk Rock (and roll)

I'm not really much of a punk guy, though I do enjoy the occasional thrash. However, I think we all could learn something from the creative masterminds of steampunk. Weburbanist posted a compilation of some of their most amazing achievements in recent time.

As you may know, I'm a big fan of the post modern. That said, we've all got a lot to learn from those before us, but with things moving so quickly over the interblag and all, it's easy to get caught up in just stealing ideas from the most recent crop of artists.

Well I say that's no way to start a movement! Steal ideas people have long since forgotten about and remind them how cool history really is (when you apply modern sensibility to it). Here's to Steampunk Rock.
