Asil's curator insight, August 5, 3:59 PM

I've gotten a couple of inquires from some of the people who subscribe to my ScoopIt feeds about where I was, so I'm doing this final post.

I mostly update my ScoopIt topics when I'm traveling, and that (for me) means using a laptop with internet served via a tethered smartphone.  Every since ScoopIt had that huge DoS attack which shut the service down, my T-Mobile tether has stopped serving ScoopIt domain pages.

The issue is with T-Mobile, but they are not dealing with it.  I tried to get ScoopIt to take action, but they have refused. Bottom-line is this platform is no longer one I can easily use, so I've stopped using it.

Thanks to everyone for reading and for the excellent commentary over the years.  Enjoy the interweaves!

This Steampunk Pottery by a Man Named Beer is Not Your Usual Craft Fair Fare

This Steampunk Pottery by a Man Named Beer is Not Your Usual Craft Fair Fare | Just Put Some Gears on It | Scoop.it

Paveen “Beer” Chunhaswasdikul's unique, hand-hewn stoneware will be showcased at the 32nd annual Smithsonian Craft Show

Asil's insight:

As a former auto mechanic, it’d make sense that potter Paveen "Beer" Chunhaswasdikul's garage in Gadsden, Alabama, would be filled with relics from his past career. The room’s shelves are lined with metal cans, flame throwers and engines. But their metallic glint belies a surprising secret: Each object, from bolts to base, has been painstakingly fashioned from clay. And the garage, where the craftsman once tinkered with car innards, is now a ceramics studio. There, he spends his days hand-making “metalware” teapots and mugs that are just as much miniature pieces of art as they are eye-catching novelties.

Interview: ‘Anatomy Of Steampunk’ Author Offers Advice For Steampunk Fashion Beginners

Interview: ‘Anatomy Of Steampunk’ Author Offers Advice For Steampunk Fashion Beginners | Just Put Some Gears on It | Scoop.it
Purse: Ali Fateh; Model: Aamina Sheikh; Photo/makeup/styling: Maram & Aabroo. Steampunk is a unique, growing area of fashion that invokes images of a world where steam-powered technology rules and 19th century style mixes with goggles and gadgets.
Asil's insight:
While steampunk also has a number of interesting styles within it including Victorian, western, and multicultural, beginners don’t have to worry about any of these styles being too hard to comprehend. Gleason hasn’t noticed any version of steampunk that people don’t particularly understand. Through all these different aspects of the fashion, beginners will notice elements that identify it all as steampunk.

How Steampunk Screws With Victorian Gender Norms | Bitch Media

How Steampunk Screws With Victorian Gender Norms | Bitch Media | Just Put Some Gears on It | Scoop.it
Corsets, death rays, and top hats—oh my! Steampunk can revel in retrograde nostalgia but also disrupts ideas of masculine and feminine.
Asil's insight:

At a deeper level, steampunk unsettles. It’s not just that "masculine" and "feminine" categories are often mixed or violated. It’s also that the very ideas of masculinity, femininity, and normalcy draw attention to themselves in steampunk contexts and invite people to think, hmm, maybe that’s not an absolute. With Victorian and contemporary gender ideologies so visible in their world, steampunk texts can push readers to think more carefully and more creatively about all these "rules."

Asil's insight:

Japan has a long tradition of Sherlock-influenced, copyright-avoiding manga or anime: Young Miss Holmes, a manga comic about Sherlock’s niece; Detective Hound, a canine anime series co-created by Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki; the unrelated Detective Dog Sherdock, a comic in which the sleuth is reincarnated as a dog; and the Arthur Conan Doyle-inspired boy crime-solver Detective Conan, whose latest animated adventure trounced Keanu Reeves’s 47 Ronin at the Japanese box-office. But the BBC series recently received the ultimate accolade: completely faithful (ie, free of tentacled creatures and and robots) comic-book adaptations of the episodes A Study in Pink and The Blind Banker in Young Ace magazine.

It is this license of creative freedom that makes steampunk such a tantalizing genre for writers, and such a rewarding and intriguing one for readers. Imagine worlds filled with outrageously crossbred contraptions, tied to epic adventures, laced with memorable stories of love. What more could a reader ask for, right?
