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.

Dieselpunk SA Picnic at Adelaide Botanic Gardens

November 20, 2011 from 11am to 2pm
This will be the first event run by the emerging Dieselpunk SA community (a spin off of the already well established Steampunk SA). I don't suspect there are many other South Australian Dieselpunks members, but I thought I'd post this just to be sure.…See More

About Blakesby

I'm a member of the Australian Costumers' Guild (ACG) and Steampunk SA/Adelaide Steampunk. Of course, I'm also a massive fan of dieselpunk. Infact, amongst the local steampunk community, I'm fairly known for my preference towards dieselpunk. At some point, I plan on launching some kind of a spin-off or sub group dedicated to dieselpunk.

Now I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I'm proud to say that I'm the creator of the original Crimson Skies Facebook fan page, as well as being an admin for the original Dieselpunk Facebook fan page.

Where else can you find Blakesby?
Find me on Tumblr (often filled with glorious things, particularly vintage and dieselpunk)

Hi Blake,

I see that you've downloaded quite a few tunes from Pilsner's Picks, so you really do miss your monthly "fix!" This technical mess I'm dealing with is like a Hydra with three heads, and I'm not a software expert, I'm the kind of guy who just wants things to work.

Also, I like to keep the song list up for a full month, so even if I get everything fixed in the next few days (which is doubtful), I'm not going to post any MP3's until May 1st. I've never gone off the monthly schedule in ten years, but now I have no choice but to take a little vacation!

Best Regards,

Hey, good question about the Rocketeer,

It was great!

There's nothing like seeing that movie in a period theater that's for sure. The whole thing started late so the panel didn't go that long but it was great hearing everyone talk especially the director, Joe Johnston.  He talked a little about the Rocketeer but He also talked about Captain America. They even had the latest trailer for Captain America that is supposed to debut online today.  After the movie they had filled one of the floors of the hollywood museum with props from the movie.  That was really cool, there was a small like 1/5th scale Gee Bee racer and several rocket packs and outfits from the movie.  Everyone that saw the movie got a commemorative program and a rocketeer patch. Definitely worth the ticket price.

Cool! Glad to hear those guys are still alive and kicking. Some of the older games (namely Battletech and Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries, to my knowledge) are being released for free through Mektek.

The same thing happened to pretty much all of the FASA properties- they withered and died (apart from Day One doing the Mechassault games).

Damn, I remember someone asked me about going over for a con but I can't remember when it was.


Bone as in actual bone. I carve it, I'm working with wood at the moment though. Learning basic whittling techniques as my power tools are packed away until I've found a workshop space.

Writing from work so I'll have to run off again. The costume lokos great :D

Nope, I'm not on the fan page- I tend to avoid Facebook like the plague, I'll take a look, though! Thanks!

I haven't done much in the past. I want to do something pretty full on for next years though, now that I have the time, money and space to get things done.


I work primarily in bone though I'm hoping *crosses fingers* to get in some metal and leather working classes by the end of the year. I do everything around a full time job so it can be a little restrictive with other commitments.


Your photo makes you look like the long lost brother of a local. Matt A, gorgeous guy. Unfortunately not out and about much these days cause grabbing a photo of the two of you would be fun. Is there much left on for the con season over there?
