What Is So Rare As A Day In June? Pilsner's Picks!

Actually, a day in February is rarer because there aren't as many of them. But that's poetic license, and mine's been revoked. In any case, we now stomp, scat and swing into summer with the latest edition of the Picks:

Featuring a rendition of "On The Good Ship Lollipop" that definitely won't remind you of Shirley Temple!

The slightly annoying registration requirement for…

S.A.M. #47: Macchi Fighting Boats

What's so special about Macchi? Not only their Schneider Trophy fame and world's speed records but also a large family of flying boat fighters and light bombers.

The first successful indigenous type, the Macchi Type L general-purpose flying boat (1915), was a direct copy of a captured…

Cap'n's Cabaret #29: Honolulu Luau!

Aloha!  Hail and welcome to the paradise isle of the Pacific, the home of King Kamehameha and birthplace of Hula, Surfing, and Luau!  Yes, beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii, land of rainbows and pineapples, a string of emeralds in the middle of the mighty Pacific!

It's been so much fun I swear we must have lost three weeks along the way!

Sure, I know tensions with…

dieselpunkindustries.com labor day weekend preview

All,

  Back in 2005 I created archiveclassicmovies.com to post my old movies. Since that time I've added almost 500 old movies, serials, shorts, and cartoons. With that much content it's been difficult to update, and poor ACM has really been neglected the past couple of years. I've finally developed a CMS that will let me more easily update my content, so I'm going to retire ACM, which will become dieselpunkindustries.com.

  Currently the preview of dielsepunkindustries.com has…

The Devil's Hour

From my own personal collection of Noir films that never were but could have been, again, and even if the inspiration for this one is a little late to qualify for Dieselpunk, strictly speaking, I would like to dedicate it to Mister Pilsner Panther who enjoys Noir…

Lord K's Garage #140: The Midget

Channel sections replaced the tubular cross-members making the vehicles ride more comfortable. The suspension was provided by leaf springs and beam-axle in the front and rear. The brakes…

Dieselpunk? You decide.

So, I make LAMPS in my part time around my 'normal' gigs I work on. I have an infinity towards pre WW2 speed. I recently learned about what Dieselpunk is from a friend who explained a few things and differences of Steampunk. I don't know if it's of any interest or not for the folks here, but I kept hearing people refer to them as Dieselpunk or even Steampunk. I really just…

Miskatonic Monday - The Doom That Came To Atlantic City and an invitation to Skirmisher's 10th Anniversary Party

Lights out, everybody.

On Miskatonic Mondays, we celebrate the "weird" fiction of HP Lovecraft and the genre of otherworldly horror it spawned.

I’m still playing catch up from Saturday’s presentation at the Steampunk World’s Fair, but I have two awesome bits of Mythos news I need to share today. The first is the Kickstarter effort for a new board game that mixes Cthulhu and the Great Old Ones.  The goal of the game is to rise from the eternal depths and destroy Atlantic…

Sunday Streamline #65: Seaboard Pacifics

If you think this column has run out of steam locomotives, you're totally wrong.
 We still have got a whole st(r)eamliner fleet at our shed. And today, after four diesels in a row, it's time to pay a tribute to the forgotten Seabord Air Line locos. The railroad's name is deceptive, suggesting aeroplanes, airports, etc. Actually, SAL had (almost) nothing to do with aviation, their name…

S.A.M. #46: Bristol Racer

This will be a short one. Meet a Bristol monoplane built in 1922 but looking a good ten years "younger".

Wilfrid Thomas Reid designed this ship in 1921, trying to come up with a "Super Racer" to enter into the Aerial Derby of 1922. The aircraft, designated Type 72, proved to be spirally unstable because of oversensitivity of any…

The Troubleshooter

"The Troubleshooter is a blend of old and new genres that Bard Constantine coined 'dystopian noir'.  Part of the developing Badlands universe, it introduces Mick Trubble, a character Bard describes as "a blend of noir detective and hard boiled antihero, blended with a generous amount of…

Italy's Obscure SMG

Despite have a long distinguished firearms heritage, Italian smallarms makers during World War II seemed to have floundered in attempts to make the next great advance in weapons designs. They came close quite often, but inevitably fell short when finding that right next generation weapon. And while other weapons makers…

Sunday Streamline #64: From Hungary With Love

Another European diesel-motor railcar.

Isn't it gorgeous?

Traditionally, the Hungarian State Railway, the MÁV (founded in 1868) purchased almost all of its steam locomotives from its own Machine Factory (MÁVAG). The cars, however, were produced by many private companies. These included such…

Why I love old time radio, a short video.

Hi all, while I was cataloging some of my radio shows I ran across an episode of the Halls of Ivy I hadn't heard before. I've posted stuff here about this show before, if you're not familiar here's a brief rundown. The show first aired in 1950 and revolved around the small college of Ivy that was presided over by it's President Dr. and Mrs. Hall. Played by Ronald Colman and his real life wife Benita. It was written by Don Quinn who was also the head writer for Fibber McGee and Molly. In the…
