People spend money on what is important to them. It has nothing to do with what they can afford.
Are you indecisive about the acquisition of a fine jewelry piece? Do not worry, I have been in your shoes many times. ‘May this be too expensive for me?’ is a question that we all need to answer sooner or later, you know.
Although it cannot be ignored, I think that the most relevant parameter to take into consideration when evaluating a possible purchase is not price. Are you wondering what it is then? Let me answer this question: the most important facet to consider is, in my humble opinion, value.
This may rise a new question, of course: how can value be measured? Obviously there is not an easy answer for this, but I would consider the following points at least.
Rome is a one-man band started by Jérôme Reuter in late 2005. Jerome was born and raised in Luxemburg, but he lives in Germany at present. Rome has become a cult band in less than 10 years, earning comparisons with legendary songwriters like Leonard Cohen and Jacque Brel. Many of Jerome’s works have some sort of historical backdrop.
‘This silver coil’ is the first official video of the band, taken from the album ‘Hell Money’. We have always loved the atmosphere of Jerome evocative songs and we highly recommend you to see him live once at least… if you get the chance.
It is curious, just some days ago we recommended you this video interview with Kevin Steil and we bring you today a promising initiative promoted by the one and only Airship Ambassador: ‘Steampunk hands around the world’. Without further ado, the official press release.
Press Release – Steampunk Hands Around the World
Just as current day expressions of steampunk are not limited to the literature where it began, the people in the steampunk community are not bound to any one geographical region. Steampunk appears in many forms, and with its popularity, the community has grown to encompass the world.
The celebration and sharing of that global association is at the heart of a new project, Steampunk Hands Around the World, by Kevin Steil, the creator and editor of steampunk news and information resource website, Airship Ambassador. With more than three dozen steampunk creators – bloggers, authors, event organizers, and others – also participating, the month long project is a multi format media presentation about the international connections and communications in the community, for steampunks and non-steampunks alike.
Beginning Sunday, February 2nd, and continuing until Friday, February 28th, the group will show and share that steampunks everywhere are linked together and that new friends are waiting in every conversation.
Steampunk, in its many forms, brings people together in an inclusive and helpful network of similar mind. From sharing book and music review opinions, to playing the newest games and sharing DIY information on fashion and props, the steampunk community easily and comfortably brings together people ages eight to eighty in ways not often seen in other communities.
The full and updated-daily list of participating websites, blogs and events will be posted in the kick-off blog on the Airship Ambassador blog site:

There is no need to say that we are proud of being part of such a meaningful and exciting enterprise. Join us now and help make Steampunk an even warmer and wider movement!
Today we would like to draw your attention to this interview with Kevin Steil (aka Airship Ambassador) conducted by Emilie P. Bush, Editor-in-Chief of Steampunk Chronicle, and recorded at Teslacon IV (Madison – WI, 2013).
In this interview Kevin talks about his project, The Steampunk Museum. We do think that both The Steampunk Museum and Steampunk Chronicle are among the most valuable initiatives for the Steampunk global community.
Feel free to have a look at some of our previous blog posts to learn more about them:
