Kickstarter funding for the history of Victorian Taxidermy and Mr. Walter Potter..




A bit late to this Kickstarer event, which fortunalty met its funding request, but if one is intersted, there is still six days (as of this writing) regarding a biography of one of the best known anthropomorphic taxidermists of the Victorian era, Mr. Walter Potter!  I shan’t belabor a narrative, especially since the web locale Morbid Anatomy did a splendid job of providing depth and nuance of the gentleman’s history.  As such, I would recommend a visit to Morbid Anatomy’s two articles regarding Mr. Potter, located at:

and
http://morbidanatomy.blogspot.com/2013/07/victorian-anthropomorphic-taxidermist.html … and a visit to the endeavor’s successful Kickstarter page, located at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/raygun/the-taxidermy-wonders-of-walter-potter-a-short-fil/  … Do enjoy!

Steampunk Music: Mansara “In The Begining”!



Getting back to posting after my unfortunately diversion, I’ve come across what may very easily be (for my money) the best Steampunk video of 2013!  The lovely Ms. Mansara has not only produced an entrancing song with a Steampunk bent (albeit my French is not what one would consider fluent), the graphics and imagery of her video is breathtaking.  Soothing, enticing, and entrancing are adjectives which all apply to her song, and I’m certainly looking forward towards obtaining her latest album!  For more information (in French, so you may have to do a bit of translating for now), please turn to:
Her webpage, at: http://www.mansara.fr/
Her Soundcloud locale, at: www.soundcloud/mansaramusic
– Please do enjoy!
