Steampunk on MTV
MTV had a recent article on steampunk, reporting on the growth of the movement as a subculture. As is to be expected, MTV focused the mainly on the fashion and music aspects of the culture and didn’t mention steampunk’s ideals at all. They also made a few mistakes, misspelling Jake Von Slatt’s name and making Steamcon sound like it’s taking place this month when it’s not until October of next year. The video (posted above) did a better job introducing steampunk than the article, and even included a couple of music videos by Dr. Steel and Abney Park.
