Steampunk - A Promotion?

I saw a blogpost today about steampunk and I made the observation that it would never take off at all because most people are stupid.

There was a reference in the article about how steampunk was a growing phenomenon, too. There is no hope of that no matter how cool you think that it is.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was a (more or less) steampunk movie, starring Sean Connery and it flopped bigtime.

Despite the fact that it was not a big hit, it was a damned good movie.

Watchman was also a borderline steampunk movie and it did not do so hot, either, but it did do better than League even though it was not as good.

Tell me what you think?

Never heard of steampunk but I enjoyed "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen."

I'd also never heard of "the contest recently to find the next twenty hottest men in the conservative thing-a-ma-bob."

I would have voted for Chris Christie but that fellow in the pic's nice looking too - if a bit skinny.

Barry, how could anyone not like League? It had very little cussing and Sean Connery was the star!

Chris Christie is a little too large to be considered hot, that is unless you are wanting some dude to sweat through his sport coat.

It's Christie's mind that's hot although I don't mind chubbies.

Interesting, could go either way.
