An announcement

Steampunk annoys me. It’s not the Victoriana: I lurve me some Victoriana. It’s the airships. Always with the bloody airships! People, listen: zeppelins are just not that cool. You gotta get over it.

  1. steampunk seems like what you’d get if someone copied everything about Miyazaki’s films but insisted on airships in place of fixed wing aircraft. Miyazaki can use airships because he knows enough about flying machines to exploit the strengths and weaknesses of all kinds of mechanized flight for actual plot and character development. Owning nearly every Miyazaki film ever made I’ll admit to bias but it seems like steampunk is recycling Miyazaki less effectively.
