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.

Knights of the Air: The pilots of the Lafayette Escadrille and their pet lions

Welcome to Knights of the Air, a weekly series on Dieselpunks spotlighting the aces and pioneering aerial technology of World War I.

Every once in a while, I run across an image so weird I would swear it was Photoshopped (even if the photo pre-dated Photoshop by about 85 years).  Knowing that the early days of photography were full of pranksters, I looked into the…

Miskatonic Monday - Book review of "Black Wings of Cthulhu"

Lights out, everybody.

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

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) heavily influenced a generation of horror authors including Stephen King and Robert Bloch, but today's genre fans are far less acquainted with his work. (Which is understandable––Lovecraft's fiction has always seemed like something you study rather than something you read.) Hitting American…

What's become of the Ziegfeld Girls?

From 1907 to 1931 Florenz Ziegfeld collected the best looking girls from around the Western world to perform in his theatrical spectaculars known as the "Ziegfeld Follies."  These beauties, decked out in Erté designs, gained the attention of the entire US becoming objects of popular adoration.

This pictorial from LOOK Magazine (circa 1938) shows the 'then' and 'now' of Ziegfeld Girls Hazel…

Miskatonic Monday - Jason McKittrick's Curwen chest from "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward"

Lights out, everybody.

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

This week, I dug up an interesting find from the eBay crypt.  Just sold at auction earlier this year was a painstakingly awesome reproduction of Joseph Curwen's necromancer supplies, including an idol, a few Yog-Sothoth-inspired pickled punks, spellbook pages, and the portrait that started young Charles' decent into…
