Steampunk, paropank (English steam + punk, steam + protest, conflict) – the direction of science fiction, simulating alternative development of mankind, which had been perfectly mastered the technology of steam engines and mechanics. By “punk” component of steampunk is a special emphasis on the “low human nature” driven by low passions – lust, anger, vanity, greed and envy.
Many people were fans of many of the stylings that have come from one pop culture type to another… Junk stores are doing booming business these days as people hit them up for old brass fittings, watches, horns and other things to modify and adapt.
We went through a similar phase with Star Wars and other Sci-Fi things in the 70a and they returned in the last decade. Super Heroes were big merchandise money makers during the WW II years, the mid 60s, and then again the late 80s with the birth of the Batman craze following the campy antics of the 60s and the dark, Gothic feel of the movie series. Super Heroes came back in a big way with X-Men. This is what I have always heard that popular culture repeats itself every generation or so… Hold on to those Slinkys, Hula Hoops, and Slip n’ Slide: we may be in for a wild ride again!
