    Will be stepping back into these space shoes very soon

    Had some major delays, mostly related to life. I've determined that guitar is my instrument, so there goes fifteen to thirty minutes of my day right there. (As well as a good part of my money, as I have Guitar Acquisition Syndrome.)

    Stargazing (Pt. 1)

    So tonight I felt like stargazing. Astronomy had always been something of an interest of mine, but I've just begun to be mature enough for actual backyard astronomy instead of sitting in a chair, staring at a screen and oohing and awing at how beautiful the universe is with color enhanced images from Hubble.

Those semi-steampunk space shoes · 5:32am Jun 8th, 2013

For anyone who receives or read my blog...

I am working on my new story. It is beginning to get to the point where I'm willing to post it up on FiMFic, but not quite. The long and short of it is that I'm writing the story out speculating what it would be like if MLP was firmly set in the 19th century. What I realize this means is that there are going to be some overlaps with steampunk, but I am not going out of my way to write it up as such. Steampunk is a romantic form of anachronistic fantasy, while what I am aiming to do is simply pin down the technologies available in the setting to help with constancy and reduce the likelihood of breaking the willing suspension of disbelief. (Though we are talking about technicolor ponies.)

Here is the link to the Spacebattles thread. If you have any comments you'd like to share without being a part of that forum, please let me know.
