Dieselpunk Tech

The Netflix show The White Rabbit Project features Tori, Grant, and Kari of Mythbusters fame spending an episode looking at (and ranking) various types of technology, based on the episode's theme. Episode 9 is called "Invented before its time?" and features early techological breakthroughs that mirrored modern tech but failed to catch on (usually because the technology was too primitive). And 5 of the 6 technologies they discuss are from the early 1900s, firmly in the dieselpunk era! So check…See More

Neo-Pulp

I'm not looking to start a fight here; I'm just curious about something I keep going back and forth on...Neo-Pulp is a literary genre wherein modern authors either write new adventures of classic pulp characters or create new characters that are clearly in the mold of those characters. The ones I've read are all period pieces, set in the days of the pulps, but the authors are modern individuals, so some of their modern sensibilities naturally creep into the stories (even if it's just a lack of…See More

Jeff Mach Events

I've attended several events hosted by Jeff Mach Events. In addition to a fairy festival (that evolved out of an indoor Renaissance Fair), they also have the Steampunk World's Fair in the Spring, Steampunk in the Catskills in the Summer, and the steampunky Halloween in the Catskills in the Fall. And I noticed a little dieselpunk sneaking in at the last World's Fair.See More

Comixology

Saw an ad on Comixology for an "Alternate Reality Sale," featuring something called Wunderwaffen, which asks what would have happened if the D-Day invasion had failed. Sounded kinda dieselpunky to me...See More

Diesel Steam?

Not STRICTLY writing-related, but I feel like this is something a bunch of world-building authors might help with...I identify more as a dieselpunk with steampunk leanings. My wife identifies more with steampunk, although she's expressed some interest in various dieselpunk elements. So I was wondering if it might be possible to craft a world combining elements of both? I've been kicking it around and can't seem to find anything that "clicks." They might be too different, but I keep thinking…See More

Spirit of the Century

The game company Evil Hat Productions (http://www.evilhat.com/home/) has a series of RPGs based on the FATE system.  One of their settings, "Spirit of the Century," is a pulp game with some dieselpunk vibes. In addition to the core book, there are three supplements.Plus, if you don't like RPGs, there is also a card game (Zeppelin Attack) and a board-style game (Race to Adventure) in the set same world. I got Race to Adventure for…See More

Dieselpunk Christmas?

Kind of a weird one, but watching Hallmark Christmas movies (my mom & wife are addicted), I noticed an add for a new one on Sunday, November 27 (and I'm sure it will be rebroadcast like 900 times after that) called Journey Back to Christmas. It stars Candice Cameron Bure and looks to have a bit of a dieselpunk vibe. It's about a World War II nurse who is magically transported to 2016 where she learns that the magic of Christmas is eternal (or something like that). But Candice looks pretty…See More

Possibly a Great Resource

I said "possibly" because I've just skimmed some of the site so far, but "Vintage Dancer" seems to provide both fashion guides for everything from the Victorian era (including Steampunk) to the 1960s, along with links to sites that sell much of the clothing! I plan to be spending some time there over the next few weeks....http://vintagedancer.com/See More

Elements of Dieselpunk.

The Top 10 post (http://www.dieselpunks.org/forum/topics/dieselpunk-top-ten?xg_source=activity) got me thinking of a similar topic: the elements of DP design.My wife is more into Steampunk (which I also enjoy), and the elements of Steampunk seem pretty set: leather, wood, brass fittings, muted colors, gears (LOTS of gears), etc. What would you say are the corresponding elements for Dieselpunk? A few pics…See More

Articles on "How to Dress 1940s"

I recently found these two articles during a Google search on 1940s fashion, and thought they were worth sharing:For the men:http://www.thelifenostalgic.com/how-to-dress-1940s-style-for-him/For the ladies:http://www.thelifenostalgic.com/how-to-dress-1940s-style-for-her/See More

Curious; Looking for Opinions....

I know there's been a lot of discussion about when the Dieselpunk "era" ends, so I hate to dredge that up again, but...Most of the stuff I've seen leans toward the 50s for upper end of Dieselpunkdom, so the '60s should be outside the realm, but looking at the fashions, the weapons, the vehicles, I'm curious if anyone else would consider The Man from UNCLE (I'm thinking more the TV show, but the recent movie would count, too) to be Dieselpunk? Or at least Dieselpunk adjacent?See More

Dieselpunk Fantasy?

Please bear with me for what may be a kind of rambling, stream-of-consciousness post, but that's how the idea came to me.As I understand it, steampunk started as a visual genre, and it just now making strong inroads into the world of fiction. Dieselpunk is a younger genre, so there doesn't seem to be as much fiction yet. I've noticed that quite a bit to steampunk (at least the stuff my wife is drawn to) has fantasy elements: magic, werewolves, vampires. But this stuff was it it's heyday in the…See More
