Steampunk Snowboard

Zaskoda started out to mount a camera on a snowboard and ended up designing a steampunk model, complete with sails and a "generator"! Link -via Unique Daily

Yes ted, a 70's dance trend is comparable to a 80 year old aesthetic.

I don't take anything serious. I bolted brass to a snowboard, come on!

And it's not a hobby. It's my one and only Steampunk project. Snowboarding, on the other hand, is my hobby.

Why are you so threatened by Steampunk? If people get off on gears, steam, brass and leather... so what?

Just substitute the concept of "disco" for "steampunk" in Zaskoda's last diatribe there.

Zask, you're taking it too seriously to try and validate your hobby with total strangers. Don't worry about it. I like the phrase "breaching into the mainstream", by the way. It's so trendy sounding.

You know a trend is breaching into the mainstream when people will actually spend their time and energy criticizing it and expressing hatred of the trend instead of just ignoring it and moving on to something worth investing energy in. I often spent energy doing the same thing when I was young an immature.

The term itself is from the 80s but the aesthetic dates back to the 30s. I didn't expect my project to get posted across so many blogs - I definitely didn't ask for it.

Folks can rag on it as much as they like, I really don't mind. While you're sitting there hating it, I got a lot of laughs, attention, compliments, and fun out of it. It was 4 days evenings of work followed by a full day of play - and I really enjoyed it. Sorry if my happiness makes you jealous! Maybe stop complaining on the Internet and go do something fun??? =D

now why did ya'll have to go and piss in Zaskoda's cheerios?

Actually, I agree. Steampunk trend is gay. The sound of the word makes me cringe like if it were nails on a chalkboard.

Die a slow and painful death steampunk. Actually it's been slow enough already, just die. Thanks.
