The Victorian Age

Heck I don't know if this was an age or not.

But take the clothing from League of Extrodinary Gentlemen, My fair Lady, and Arcanum and you have the age I'm talking about.

Okay now throw in a HUGE helping of gears and steam and grease.

Now add just about -anything- and you have awesome.

I just felt the need to say this.

This is my favorite so far of computer steampunk ... http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://quinnstephens.com/blog/pics/steampunkLaptop2.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.quinnstephens.com/blog/index.php%3Fitemid%3D86&h=399&w=400&sz=185&tbnid=w9TlUytXDosJ::&tbnh=124&tbnw=124&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dsteam%2Bpunk&sa=X&oi=image_result&resnum=2&ct=image&cd=1

Wow, why are links so impossibly long? why can't the comp just read my mind? HP by the way has come out with a comp that look like Marcus' iPod phone, very smooth.

And since this does not seem to have been touched on yet, yes there was a Victorian Age. It was so named because the monarch of the British Empire (at the time) was Queen Victoria.
