10:28PM - New Christmas Ornaments!



Hello, all! Christmas is coming up fast, and I'm adding new ornaments to my Flights of Industry shop on Etsy as quickly as I can! The latest "widget" is shown above. Hmm, looks like I need to add more submarines, but there are several rockets and airships. Thanks, and Happy Shopping!

8:33AM - THE GRIMM FAIRYTALE BALL (This Saturday 10/29, Los Angeles)





Once upon a time, little boys and litle girls stepped onto pages seeped with shadowy ink and maddening dreams, passed through contorted reflections of reflecting brass, gripped breathlessly to groundshards or towering flora surpassing clouds, titans, and perhaps even gods... Once upon a time, little boys and little girls were haunted, desired, fooled, fought, danced, seduced, puzzled, poisoned, hunted, lost, and eaten in parables far different than the happy tales with happy endings for happy children today...


With that essence in mind, LADEAD™ cordially invites you to "THE GRIMM FAIRYTALE BALL" -- Our 4th Annual darkly dreaming, decadent evening within an enchanted realm of whispered secrets and enraptured fantasies sheltered in the depths of blithe poetry and sonic prose~

11:21PM - Hydrocrystallophone

I'm not even sure anyone is reading this community any more, but here is a demonstration video of the musical instrument I just finished inventing, the hydrocrystallophone. It was shown at Steamcon this last weekend. It's entirely mechanical, using an old hand-cranked phonograph motor.

10:25PM - Scientific expedition and picnic music video

Last month I took out my railroad-style hand car, the C/S Kalamazoo on a small expedition with a bunch of friends. I just couldn't resist editing the footage into a music video (though admittedly it did take me a bit longer than I intended to get it finished). Enjoy!

11:58AM - Steampunk Event near London this weekend.

For those Steampunk fans that live nearish London, Kew Bridge steam museum is currently running a Steampunk exhibition until the 29th of August. They are also having a few themed weekends with workshops and whatnot. This weekend is a steampunk fashion theme 'Fashion Punk'. There will be workshops, competitions and stalls during the day, and a fashion show in the evening on Saturday.
According to the website, future event themes include Steampunk music, and making Steampunk related 'gubbins' (for want of a better word) among other things.
The museum also has a nice steam railway, and some very impressive steam engines, including the worlds largest working beam engine.
Even better, you only have to pay the entry price once, and it gets you into the museum for the rest of the year.
I'm going dressed up in my finery with a couple of friends. Look forward to seeing you there!

(Note, I don't actually work for the museum, this just looks like a mighty awesome series of events, in a very cool place).

4:58AM - July 16th playbill op

I understand that this is extremely short notice but we were just aloud to publish something with in the playbill that makes it worth seeing who would wish to be part of it as well.

July 16th in Philadelphia Dorian's Parlor One Year Anniversary
Event info and RSVP here : http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=117135848365529&ref=ts


I am certain you are all aware that this July 16th in Philadelphia the one year anniversary of Dorian's Parlor One Year Anniversary is talking place.

We have been extremely fortunate and privileged via Wildside Press to be aloud to publish exclusively the prologue and first chapter to the debut novel of G.D Falksen's The Hellfire Chronicles: Blood In The Skies. This means the playbill we are publishing and handing out for free to more than the 500+ attendees at our great event will include not only full color playbill of all the entertainment, performers and vendors of the event but also a preview of a book just out this July. Due to this special collector's item we now feel it is appropriate to open our playbill up for you to place your advertisements within its pages. But due to time constraints with the event we are only open to all ad slots for the next 24 hours from now, unti ll 6am Tuesday EST. So please if you wish be part of this ever growing fantastic night now is your change to have your ad within the pages of our collectable playbill with exclusive printed material.

I would love for the playbill to be full of nothing but ads for the fantastic fashion and accessory stores and such I see post here all the time.

Info on add space needs here
The details you need to knowCollapse )

It should also be noted that during the event we are having quite a large amount of press and media filming for documentaries and a number of other things so it is a chance to have your promotional material seen by members of the press and TV as well.

If you wish to jump on this short lived opportunity please email for ASAP info : apramagioulis@gmail.com


Thank you and I hope you come if you can. It's really becoming something special beyond the magic we do monthly at Dorian's Parlor.
