Behold the Essence of Steampunk

What you see here is a steam-powered record player playing the classic Sex Pistols tune “God Save the Queen”. My immediate thought upon seeing this was “Cool! But…why?” Then it occurred to me that this little invention sums up the entire Steampunk sub-culture (movement? Are they a sub-culture or a movement? Does anyone really know?) in a nutshell. Take something normal, like a record player, and add steam and brass. That’s really all there is to it. Hmmm, that gives me an idea. If anyone wants me, I’ll be installing a steam engine in my electric shaver.
