Still Plenty of Time to Get Your Swing On!

There's still plenty of time to get your swing on for March's Expo theme!


 It's Swingtime, baby! By the time March rolls around, we've all got cabin fever here in the Northern hemisphere, and if that puts ants in yer pants, the only thing you can do is dance. Music and dance are creative expressions, yet they're mathematics and mechanics…

"Welcome to the Machine" November/December Exhibition

Well, the current Expo in the halls of the Athena Exhibition got off to a rocky start. There we were, chugging along happily, when all of a sudden, I noticed a lot less of the robotic minions were coming in and out of the construction zone.

Sure enough, when I went to check on progress, I noticed several were down with some sort of malfunction--the big brains in the factory are calling it a "virus" and making like it's some sort of bug that'll lay a minion out just like it'll…

Fall at the Athena Exhibition

Fall is finally making an appearance here in the Dieselpunk-topia, and

while some of us are still smoldering from the crushing heat wave,

there's a cool breeze fanning our sails and inspiring us to create once

again with the assurance that whatever we build won't immediately melt.

The Athena Exhibition has been nicely received for its first test

flights. We (my robot minions and I) are still shaking her down and

tweaking her mechanicals, but she's ready...now… Continue

Athena Exhibition: July is for Setting the World on Fire

It's that time again, pals and gals! Our first Exhibition of Authors and Artists was quite the success--we had a wonderful exhibition of talent from the community centering around Travel and its wonders in the Dieselpunk era-that-never-was.I liked it so much, I thought we should do it again. And I'm casting my net further afield for subjects--all the way into....THE FUTURE. (With a hat-tip to Wesley R. Mortega for providing the original idea upon which I…

Making a Dieselpunk World

I'm crafting an alternate history to support a story I'm writing. When I sat down to play "what if?" I chose the approach of listing the aspects of dieselpunk (and steampunk) that I most liked and the sensibilities ascribed to them. Then I went about trying to craft justification for them (ie, why did the alterna-tech not come into the forefront in the main timestream, and what could change to make it so?). I don't know if this is the wisest way to create a logical existence for alternative… Continue
