"To some, “steampunk” is a catchall term, a concept in search of a visual identity. “To me, it’s essentially the intersection of technology and romance,” said Jake von Slatt, a designer in Boston and the proprietor of the Steampunk Workshop (steampunkworkshop.com), where he exhibits such curiosities as a computer furnished with a brass-frame monitor and vintage typewriter keys."

"Yes, Pugh's hanging Damoclean shards of mirrored glass and Owens' operatic soundtrack borrowed from the final scene of "Salome" are theater, but it's theater that reflects the dire circumstances that surround us. It may well be that the duo of darkness is too many fall seasons ahead, but they could be on to something. These are dark times indeed, and vampiric overtones abound. Movies like "Twilight" and TV shows like "True Blood" capture the imagination of a generation whose social lives exist in the matrix of the Internet, an existence back-lit by the cathode-ray tube."

*Thanks Dallas for the articles!
