Battersea Power Station

Decorated with four glorious chimneys, this is one of the most famous buildings in UK. Living Dieselpunk symbol, the station is looking fine in a Steampunk entourage:

Battersea Station owes a lion's share of its fame to Pink Floyd album Animals (1977). Long before that it was featured in The Beatles'… Continue

To the Moon. 1929

80 years ago a man (and a woman) landed on the Moon - in Fritz Lang's Frau im Mond movie (known as By Rocket to the Moon and Girl in the Moon).

Today the landing episode may look ridicoulous, but the start is still majestic as ever.

Famous rocket scientist Hermann Oberth provided Lang with technical advice and stuff.

First woman to the Moon. First countdown. Don't forget it's 1929.

And here's the synopsis by… Continue

Republic had been in negotiations with DC since 1939 for the rights to do Superman but couldn’t come to terms with DC. Not being a company that wasted anything, they took their already… Continue

Introducing The Strangers

Strangers Project is love / suspense / spy story set in 1972 - an alternate 1972, very different from our timeline.

No H-bomb. No satellites. Not a single Japanese car on the street. You can still go to London by a flying boat. You are quite sure that your jeans were invented by some Frenchman. UFA beats Hollywood at box office. Duke of Edinburgh is called Ernest, not Philip. And they still wear blackshirts in Italy...
