The Show Is Back On The Road Again - It's The November Pilsner's Picks!

Well, gang, when we last saw Pilsner Panther, he was lost in the trackless wastes of the internet, blinded by the lack of a monitor due to a power supply blowout— gadzooks!



So there was no October playlist, and I hadn't missed a single month since the Panther Brewing Company was launched way back in 2001, as a feature page on someone else's vintage comedy film website. Eventually, I spun it off on its own, which is boring old story that I don't care to go…

Hot-Cha, Hotsy-Totsy, And Just Plain Old HEAT - It's The September Pilsner's Picks

Last month at this time I said that I was "sweating it it out," but that was nothing! Right now where I live, it's a hundred and eight degrees, breaking all existing local temperature records.



Panthers, however, are used to tropical and jungle climates, so I've still managed to perspire through preparing a September playlist. Some of these tunes might make you feel like shaking your jelly roll, but I'm just going to sit very still and drink some chilled…

Sweating It Out With The August Pilsner's Picks

Pilsner's Picks has both delirium and hallucinations this month— which might have something to do with the consistent 90-degree days we've been having in this neck of the woods. In any case, here's some hot music to go with the hot weather.

Declare Your Independence From Boring Modern Music With Pilsner's Picks!

We temporarily interrupt President The Donald's endless tweeting to present— the July Pilsner's Picks!

The ol' Panther hardly ever gets any requests, but recently there was one for Jimmy Durante, so the immortal Schnozzola is in the mix this month, along with the usual eclectic selections (or selectic eclections, if you prefer). "Hot cha cha cha cha!"

THIS is Dieselpunk

It’s been a long time coming, my explanation of what “Dieselpunk” is and why it’s the most important genre of them all. And since I’ve been asked this question a lot, I have a lot of practice and because of the work I’ve done, I’ve become an accidental authority on what is, and what isn’t dieselpunk. I’ve been a dieselpunk long before there ever was a word “dieselpunk,” and I’ve seen many other names for it come and go along the way, too. But for now, since "Dieselpunk" is the name of…

Like the Phoenix: What's Old Is New Again

We got good news, great news... And some bad news. And then The Best News.

The good news is, Not much is going change. What you see here is pretty much what you're going to get when this continues when I take this over in a mere custodial mode.

Dieselpunks.org isn't MY site. I don't own it... I am merely the custodian of it.

Hopefully, you'll be able to view "Dieselpunks" two ways - via this URL or as thefedorachronicles.com/dieselpunks... the choice is…

New Beginnings

"We come to beginnings only at the end." - William Throsby Bridges, World War 1 Australian Army Officer.

Dieselpunks.org has gone through some endings and beginnings over the last few years. A year ago Dieselpunk Founding Father and creator of Dieselpunks.org Tome Wilson ended his ownership. Yet, Dieselpunks.org had a new beginning as I picked up ownership from Tome and continued to operate the site for the past year. Now we come to a new ending as I end my ownership due to…

Victory Day!

Let's have a toast to the victors, who ended the bloody war in Europe 72 years ago.

Allied nations were united in struggle, and we prevailed together.

Happy Victory Day, diesel-comrades!…

All Good Things…

So comes snow after fire, and even dragons have their ending! - J. R. R. Tolkien

A year ago, I took ownership of Dieselpunks.org. It was this site, started by the Dieselpunk Founding Father Tome Wilson, that introduced me to Dieselpunk. Because of this I wanted to keep Dieselpunks.org going.

However, I’ve found that this site is expensive in both time and money. Therefore, I will not be renewing the web domain. As of May 21, 2017. Dieselpunks.org will be shutting…

Mayday! Mayday! It's The May Pilsner's Picks!

Since you've got to be modernistic, why not be modernistic with the May edition of Pilsner's Picks? After all, this ancient music was all very modern, once upon a time.

For example, John Kirby and his hot little combo were making Beethoven roll over, years before Chuck Berry did!…

Interview on my modelling art

Several times, I published Dieselpunk-related pictures of my special kind of modelling art. Under the German title 'Virtuelle Eisenbahnwelten' (virtual railway worlds), the online campus magazine of TU Braunschweig, which is the University of Technology at Braunschweig, Germany, published an interview on my art activities. The text is in German but can be easily translated online using the Google translation tool:…

Marching Into March (Not Yet Swinging Into Spring, It's Still Too Cold) With Pilsner's Picks!

The Donald The President (or is that The President The Donald?), hasn't found any reason to shut down Pilsner's Picks yet, so here's the March edition.

Notable this month, a real oddity in the enormous Duke Ellington discography: an early Ellington band record with an accordion as the featured instrument. I suspect that this is the only such record of the Duke's, and I've heard most of them from the 20's and 30's. Who did he think he was, anyway? Lawrence Welk?!

The…

Carlos Gardel

When I recently searched Dieselpunks.org for the name Carlos Gardel but found no mention of him I was flabbergasted. I decided to rectify this glaring oversight in a website championing interbellum Western pop culture.

If you have not heard of Senor Gardel, that is understandable for several reasons: First, he performed in the musical genre of tango which is not as popular as it was in the Teens, Twenties, and Thirties. Second, he died on June 24 1935, before Frank Sinatra began his…

Victrola-Era Valentines - Or, The February Pilsner's Picks!

It's February, when a young man's fancy turns to... no, not the groundhog, forget that lousy groundhog! I mean romance, as in Valentine's Day. So, Mr. Romance himself, Pilsner Panther, will now wax romantic with the old wax.
