The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing - Interview - Contactmusic.com | Just Put Some Gears on It | Scoop.it

The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing are kind of like an underground super team of rascals and ragamuffins. The band features cult comedian Andrew O'Neill and ex Creaming Jesus singer Andy Heintz, and their loyal fanbase is ever growing.

 

With their latest double a-side single 'The Gin Song / Third Class Coffin',

TMTWNBBFN have presented us with a fine slab of rough 'n' tumble alt rock, masked under humorous lyrics with surprising substance. Their shows are usually sell-out affairs with fans huddled in to see their favourite steampunk stalwarts.

Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza! | Alex Andreev

Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza! | Alex Andreev | Just Put Some Gears on It | Scoop.it

April 11, 2013 the premiere of the animated film Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza! I was the senior concept artist on this project and drew hundreds of concepts for the film. Film action occurs on a planet "Pluk". It's a planet-desert. There lives the rests of the hi-tech civilization which have gone through full cultural collapse.

Asil's insight:

“Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza” by Georgy Daneliya is an animated remake of Daneliya’s 1986 sci-fi comedy “Kin-Dza-Dza.” The Coilhouse online magazine dubbed the original film “Soviet steampunk” for its use of minimalist scenery – most of the film was shot in the Karakum desert in Soviet Turkmenistan – and criticism of the Communist dogma.

 

Asil insight:  Follow the link above to the home page of the one of the film's concept artists; it has the [Russian] movie trailer embedded, as well as some wonderful stills. 

 

The movie is in the news because Nikita Mikhalkov thinks it is “this year’s only choice” for the best foreign film award at the Oscars.

When you consider that the Ghostbusters franchise has existed for almost 30 years now, it seems somewhat dated. I mean, 1984 is completely different from 2013 in almost every conceivable way.

Frankenstein looks like an entirely different kind of monster when he’s made of gears and metal. I like this take on the classic creature

Asil's insight:

Legendary special effects artist Rick Baker is the undeniable king of Halloween with this steampunk reinterpretation ...powered by an elaborate array of cyborg clockwork and brass fixtures now hold [the]  stringy flesh in place.  ...  Baker debuted his mechanical monster suit at an event celebrating his M.A.C. Cosmetics makeup line. His wife, Silvia, was appropriately the steampunk Bride of Frankenstein, although her look was considerably less gruesome.

Comic Review: Steampunk Originals, Vol. 1 - Geeks of Doom

Comic Review: Steampunk Originals, Vol. 1 - Geeks of Doom | Just Put Some Gears on It | Scoop.it

I can’t think of a better way to showcase the aesthetically pleasing visuals of steampunk than with a comic book anthology. In Arcana’s newest collection of comic shorts, Steampunk Originals, multiple writers and illustrators are able to push the boundaries of steampunk tropes by combining its concepts with those of other genres. The end results are a culmination of many creatively engaging stories.

Asil's insight:

This publication is new to me.  Looks good based on the review.
