If you don't know what steampunk is, you can read about it here. And if you do know what it is, you'll appreciate a quote I found on that page:
“Steampunk is what happens when goths discover brown.” – Jess Nevins
I love that. Seriously, steampunk is a nice, wholesome movement based on fun and creativity. I like it! But I wonder why Dog insisted I learn about it. Hmmm.
(For those unfamiliar with Dog, he is a friendly algorithm from a galaxy far, far away. He was sent by a federation of intelligent races whose membership spans the universe. Dog's sole purpose is to save humanity from itself. BTW, newsflash: Dog informed me [in a charming series of barks] that he plans to visit me this coming Tuesday night. And he said he has momentous news for me -- which means he has big news for all of us. I believe Dog is going to save mankind! Stay tuned.)
