I love this guy's work, the keyboard and recently posted flat panel screen are great. I may may have to build a set for the computer at my mom's home, it would drop right into the 1870's vibe perfectly

The strat is pretty cool also!

He has a bus conversion on the non stream punk side of web site, while not Neverhaul I looks like it would be great for the playa

How did you not invent this, O Kitty?


I remember a series of comics from the sixties about people traveling the us in wood powered steam driven vehicles, like houses on wheels.
It seemed like a post apocalyptic steam powered world with the rare gas powered car driven by a hotrodder.
It makes sense the rodders will be the last to drive cars, just as I have friends rebuilding steam locomotives for their own reasons.

It would be a shame if I had to resort to self-deception to preserve my faith in objective reality.

I think my life changed when the Neverwas machine pulled up out of the darkness on me last year.
The whole steampunk genre is very compelling.
