Mad Uncle Cliff is one of three local Steampunks featured in this month’s issue (with the John Lennon cover) of the Australian Rolling Stone:

It’s fascinating to see the profile of this movement rise, as big media begrudgingly give it the attention it deserves.

I recall with interest the piece MTV did about a year ago, which I viewed whilst fighting against a kanji keyboard in a net cafe in Osaka, Japan. That country is chock full of steampunk goodies, but everytime I mentioned the word I was rewarded with nothing but blank looks.

Perhaps because they think nothing of integrating imagined pasts and futures with their present condition, and thus don’t need a special word for it.
