Most steampunk fans have absolutely no idea what the 'punk' part originally meant.

I've noticed two things in LARP fandoms whether it's steampunkers and wastelanders (aka dieselpunk)

the venn diagram is a blurry circle wherein between lies "open relationship" and "gently caress YOU YOU WANTED TO OPEN THE RELATIONSHIP I AM THE ALPHA"

Yeah, but "steampunk rapper?" You're broadening it to the point that anything they'd use as a plot on SVU falls into this thread.

He's prominent enough to have a Wikipedia article and to make an appearance on Phineas & Ferb. Or are we going to set a hard line on how many album sales you need to have before your sexual assault is now worthy of inclusion?

I used to (heck, I kind of still do) love the steampunk aesthetic but now I mostly question the motives of people who cosplay as essentially Victorians with better tech.

I would love it if someone made a deconstructive steampunk book/movie/game that also dove deep into the problematic attitudes of the time. Those Tesla guns don't look so cool now when they are used to slaughter Africans, huh? Oh you're into that? Ok, NVM.

That’s pretty much Bioshock Infinite except they severely gently caress up the social commentary by making it a “both sides are bad” thing

I was so disappointed by that game.

Though I don't think it could be considered "steampunk" per se. More like "Hey, early 20th century America was pretty hosed up, huh?"

That's sort of like the border of steampunk or dieselpunk. "Dieselpunk" usually has a world war aesthetic.

Looking at the rest of that twitter feed and yikes on bikes my dude. Posting from this is like a step up from posting from weekly world news and that's only because this is tangentially true.

Not to even attempt to defend this guy but his tenure at Disney was from 1992 to 1993 before jumping ship to Warner until 1996 when he got out of the industry altogether. His contact that got him arrested and convicted was in 2007. The guy's a monster and was arrested but this is lower than steampunk musician sex offenders.

I'm guessing everything with the word "free" is tainted now.

I get being pissed that Shakespeare in Love got best picture at the cost of Saving Private Ryan, but if you're just judging Best Picture winners on their own merits Shakespeare in Love is way better than a lot of winners.
