#MirthMusicMon – Call It Steampunk

21 Sep

While wandering the wonderful world that is YouTube looking for a video for this week’s Mirth and Music Monday I came across this fascinating little ditty:



I love that not only does he poke fun at what is wrong with so many attempts at steampunk he takes time to actually explain what steampunk is so it’s easier to get it right.

Here’s the link to his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/Pikedevant

I like the steampunk world. One day I hope to have several nice, authentic looking, late 1800’s dresses to accessorize to my heart’s content. Until then I will continue to bask in the fun that is a giant game of what-if.


Speaking of if…

That’s all for me today. Have a great rest of the week! 😀





MMM…Kristin Chenoweth’s The Girl in 14G

It’s Monday!

That day when we trade Mirth and Music Monday posts in an effort to soften the harsh return of another work week.

I have my mother to thank for turning me on to this song. Every time I see something with Kristin in it I’m amazed by her voice and tiny-ness. How does someone who’s 4′ 11″ have a set of lungs like that?!


This one made me laugh, and I hope you will also enjoy it.



If you are still in need of cheering up, or if you have time for more interesting videos check out ReGi McClain’s blog. Hers is the creative mind that came up with this idea. Plus, on the right hand side of her site you will see two googly eyed blue smiley faces; click on the top one and it will take you to the list of bloggers who are playing along.

Give it a try. You might find another blog or two to follow.


Now I’m going to make a pot of tea, grab a pear out of the fridge, and see about writing a piece of Steampunk flash fiction.


Happy Monday, y’all!
