Well, I always throught Clockpunk was more 16th and 17th, what-if-Leonardo-had-been-listened-to kind of stuff...

Given what Punk actually rfers to, pretty much anything that goes against the norm can have the suffix. Including a monastic lifestyle, but, no Monkpunk for me.

This, I believe, sums up my personal idea of mashpunk - if you can use bioengineering instead of electronics, do so. If you can use steam rather than bioengineering, do this. If you can use clockwork in place of steam, do it. If you can use unmodded life instead of clockwork, do so.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I'm hesitant to actually post this link...but sometimes (damn my bones!) I just can't help myself...

And please, it's nothing personal I PROMISE!!!!!

Just sharing for the sake of the community...many of the postings on this thread that are antithetical to my own feelings are admittedly equally valid and well-thought out...so just for edification, k?

I already saw that link - it's been posted earlier.

I don't undertsand, however, how biopunk and cyberpunk are subdivisions of Steampunk, since Mashpunk would include that. If anything, I, as the only Mashpunk I know of, can claim every over 'punk' is an inane subdivision of mine. When, in reality, they came first...

I keep different pairs of goggles. A pair for accessing the net, a pair for flying, a pair for tinkering...
