Diese detaillierten Spielkarten im Steampunk-Style sind eine Zusammenarbeit von Bicycle® und theory11. Auf jeden Fall ein Must-Have für jeden Steampunkfan und/oder Kartenspieler.

Der Preis geht mit $5.95 auch mehr als in Ordnung - das Set ist schon so gut wie vorbestellt. Weitere Details zur Bestellung und ein Video gibt´s bei theory11.

At the edge of industry, therein lies Steampunk.
Ripped from the pages of science fiction, the gears are turning, the steam is pumping, and the playing cards were finally born. It wasn't easy. The paper used on these tuck cases did NOT exist.

One for the night:

SKREAM "Nefariousa"

Stories that begin with a rainbow wig floating scalp-side down in a swimming pool seldom end well. But you never know. This clip for Skream's "Nefariousa" — complete with juggling pins, creams pies, and blonde twins brandishing molotov cocktails — has the potential to turn even the saddest clown's frown upside down. (If you like your smile served with an extra aggro dose of creepy, that is). With its lung-rattling bass line and hardpan synths, "Nefariousa" is a mighty burner. (Track taken from the Scion AV's five track EP Skream & Benga.) View at your own risk. Warning: No Lifeguard On Duty.

Wundervoll eingefangene Kurzdokumentation von Thomas Roebers und Floris Leeuwenberg über die Menschen in Baro (Guinea), für die das gesamte Leben einen eigenen Rhythmus hat. Das Malinke-Wort "Foli" steht dabei für viel mehr als nur Rhythmus - man trifft darauf in jedem Lebensbereich.

Dedicated to the people of baro.

Life has a rhythm, it's constantly moving.
The word for rhythm ( used by the Malinke tribes ) is FOLI.
It is a word that encompasses so much more than drumming, dancing or sound.
It's found in every part of daily life.
In this film you not only hear and feel rhythm but you see it. It's an extraordinary blend of image and sound that feeds the senses and reminds us all how essential it is.

By the brothers Thomas Roebers en Floris Leeuwenberg

Film crew during one month in Baro, Guinee Afrika.
