Ah, steampunk. My love.

I wish that our modern contraptions were powered by steam and sheer creativity. . .  some of the gadgets steampunkers have conjured up are beyond this world, honestly.

YouTube? Never heard of it!

Retro-Futurism is what I really, really want the future to look like. Technologically advanced, yet classy... with lots of martinis and fedoras and pencil skirts. Goddammit, I know it's stupid and idealistic ... but you have to admit that the optimism people felt during the 1950s -60s about technology was adorable and somewhat magical.

We need to start making hovering, chrome-covered Pontiacs, STAT. If cars could freaking hover, it would bring the American automobile industry out of the funk it's currently in. Airtight logic, yes? Yes.

ROCKETSHIP Subways?? Yes, please.

A Retro-Futuristic Phonebooth.... made totally obsolete by cellphones :(
