Maxie Malone

This is a little surprise-gift for Athena, an illustration for the excerpt of her book she treated us to as a teaser in the Literature section of the Great Diesekpunk Exhibition. But... not a word, please : she doesn't know !

Lord K's Garage - #40. Streamline. Paul Jaray

Probably the most important chapter in the Streamline Story is the life of Paul Jaray - a man well ahead of his time.

This line drawing, looking so modern, was made as a part of paperwork for a patent application as early as in 1921. The great designer received his German State Patent for car streamlining in 1926.



Paul Jaray (1889-1974), of Hungarian Jewish descent, was born in Vienna. Here…

Exploding Lances of the Fukuryu

From the wrecked hulk they emerged. Walking like bloated zombies, the Fukuryu silently moved along the harbor floor, betrayed only by a faint trail of bubbles. But the rising gas was lost in the churn of propellers and exploding mist. The United States was invading the Japanese homeland and the Fukuryu were sent to stop them at the tip of an exploding spear.

My favorite moment of the weekend, besides getting to dance with ENSMB and getting shocked by Jake Von Slatt's Wimshurst machine (on purpose mind you), was meeting Jordan… Continue
