Dieselpunks will not fall!

I need your help. Dieselpunks could be closed by Halloween, but you can keep it alive!

Since launching Dieselpunks in 2009 as a safe haven and inspiration for diesel and steampunk artists, we’ve become one of the largest and most active punk communities in the world. And now, over five years later, we’re going to be forced to close this community unless you can help.

The cost of covering our hosting and music licensing fees for 2014-2015 has exceeded what my paycheck can support. The solution is to raise the funds via Kickstarter.

Chester Nez, Last of the original Navajo Code Talkers, Dies at 93

Posted on June 24, 2014 at 1:33pm 4 Comments

He was the last of his kind, one of the 29 original US Marine Corps "Code Talkers" of the Navajo Nation. As a child, the teachers at his government-run boarding school tried to force him to give up his native tongue, a hellaciously complex mess of tenses and verbs without many adjectives. In WW2, he and his brothers would ironically use that very language to help the United States liberate the Pacific.…

Pugilism, fisticuffs, the duel in the squared circle, the sweet science...whatever you call it, it is perhaps the manliest dance in the world.

One ring, two men, fifteen rounds. No low blows or rabbit punches. Let's get it on! [image from wikimedia]
