I think she deserves a thread, given the music videos she's put out.

There are more, of course; Master Of Tides has already been posted. A case could be made for Beautiful Times (Owl City ft. Lindsey Stirling), given the goggles the kid wears at the start... Tongue

Someone suggested that she be invited to next year's Asylum and be offered a go at 'Tea Duelling'.

I was sorry to have to inform the poster that Lindsey is a devout Mormon and doesn't drink tea.

Nice tunes though.

Apparently in 1833 God told them not to drink it. I believe they can indulge in fruit and herbal brews however (and Mitt Romney can also drink coke with a clear conscience).

It's got caffeine in it, and apparently Mormons have a thing against stimulants. (Also intoxicants, and whatever it is nicotine is supposed to do for you.)

Which is how we know that Mormonism is false, because God, being an Englishman, would never forbid the consumption of tea.

Coffee, on the other hand...

Lol, well no apparently it isn't to do with caffeine although it was always assumed so, hence the Coca Cola debate. The Word Of Wisdom just specifies "Hot drinks", which has always been taken to mean tea and coffee. Still supposedly their diet is all very healthy and a recent report suggests they tend to live longer as a result. I feel I should get a bit more genned up about Mormons as I've been encountering them more frequently in recent years (I've never considered myself to look like the kind of person that wants to talk about God, but they always seem to think so).

Still we better hope Miz Stirling's output remains entertaining because if that's anything to go by she could be at it for quite some time. Sadly so could Mitt Romney, although his love of Coca Cola might prove his undoing (you can clean rust with that stuff).

I find Mormons to be interesting. Heretics, yes, but fascinating heretics, and ones who have a lot to teach orthodox Christians about how to live. I mean, in the middle of the apocalypse, I'd prefer to have Mormons than Methodists for neighbours...

Anyway, that's good to hear about Ms Stirlings projected lifespan  Grin

A shame, I thought mormonism might be a loophole in the "bacon vs multiple wives" debacle. Howevet you lose out on hot drinks, I'm staying away.

Steampop. It's been steampop since all these Lords and Ladies of Steam began to appear. Punk is supposed to be, like, punky and counter cultural... not "gentleman adventurers", more like "ragmuffin who stole an airship". But no, steampunk sold out to The Man...

Oh, you were talking about the music. Steampop?
