dub I'm not hating .com I'm hating the reply. Inbred 'hacktavist' unfollowing him because he's not Internet edgy enough anymore.

dub Anon is the new emo.
mircea_popescu Nah, emo was actually very physical by comparison. I think anon might be the new steampunk.
dub Anon is the same fat friendless nerd he's always been.
mircea_popescu But now online.
dub Sitting in his room at moms house, desperately wanting to feel connected to something before ascending to a life of upsized combos and debt slavery. So yeah, punk fits pretty well.
mircea_popescu Well punk not so much. But punk died, in like the 70s. The reanimated corpses packed full of nonpareils however... Speaking of which, how the fuck does steampunk get a better Taaki than we do! wikipedia.org/wiki/G._D._Falksen check out this idiot.

mircea_popescu Oh this article rocks. Steampunk 101 by GD Falksen. "What is steampunk? Bla bla. Where does the punk come in? Ironically, it doesn’t."
dub mircea_popescu: I'm blaming you when the steampunks, goths, hippies and anonymous fucktards are coming after me.
mircea_popescu Totally IRONICALLY it doesn't. That's it, absolutely. Anon is the new steampunk.
ThickAsThieves cuz they can't stay anon at all?
However, individuals interested in exploring a steampunk equivalent to 20th century punk can find a wealth of material in 19th century counterculture groups ranging from the Luddites to utopians to hooligans.

Totally. I can see punk guys adding "dashes" of shit. Like, pinky upturned and everything.
