OK yes that was a total mess.

Wow. THAT cost $4 million dollars?

I'm a wrestling fan. I was listening to a podcast interview recently of the former head writer for WWE Smackdown (the WWE's number two show). It's two hours long, and it takes place in stadiums of up to 18,000 seating (i.e., a standard NBA/NHL stadium). The cost that apparently went into each show (which admittedly doesn't include the regular set and the contracted / employed personel) was $200,000.

Production costs fluctuate wildly. Its a very strange business, where vendors and clients cut deals constantly. Prices for everything in production move like the commodities market.

I only have a television perspective but I know movies have similar funding deals, and I imagine live events do also.

There HAD to have been embezzlement. There is no fucking way they paid Stevie Wonder and whoever the hell that other dude was that much fucking money.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Poor Stevie Wonder. He had no idea.

Holy crap, I think that was Sisqo.

I could listen to Patton talk about failures forever.

Extra star for "cool future gadgetry in the mid-nineteenth century." I envy people who don't know the word "steampunk".

So Steampunk is a real word? I thought that was just some word gamers made up to describe post 16-bit era Final Fantasy games.

Chalkdust
It was coined in the late 80's (mimicking "cyberpunk" which had emerged a few years earlier) to describe kind of neo-Victorian sci-fi/fantasy fiction that was being produced, at that time, by Tim Powers, James Blaylock and K.W. Jeter. Jeter himself came up with the term and self-applied it, as there wasn't a snappy categorization for the kinds of stuff they'd been producing.

Rodents of Unusual Size
Yes and there are literally hundreds of websites devoted to it.

I am the Cena Mark brony of the steampunks on this board in that I am the only one that admits to liking it.

I hate Wild Wild West and in the steampunk community it is one of the only related films that is openly reviled. Along with the remake of the Time Machine, which is awful.

Steampunk is proto-hipster.

The "punk" suffix has also applied to a few other things. I'd heard the Wild Cards novels edited by George RR Martin described as "Splatterpunk" for the amount of bloody violence contained therein.

Now it seems to mean "sub-culture in a given genre, usually fantasy or sci-fi, that has an easily identifiable aesthetic."

John Holmes Motherfucker
"Steampunk is the intersection of technology and romance"

It's like the taste sensation when maple syrup BAM collides with ham!

What's the big deal? I too hang out with 300 people everyday.

I met a steampunk who lived out of his van at a flea market once. He would not shut up for 40 minutes straight. When he was trying to explain to me what steampunk is I told him "Yeah, I know. It's like that movie Wild Wild West." He gave me the most disgusted look and said "uh...well yeah it is, but I prefer to use the movie Steamboy as an example."

Even Steampunks don't like Wild Wild West.

A steampunk stole the love of my life. I will never come to terms with that.

Rodents of Unusual Size
They are a very dashing lot! It can't be helped.

SolRo
She couldnt resist his van?

memedumpster
"Look at all this cool stuff that looks like it should do something but doesn't because it's bullshit glued to other things like some kind of goddamned broken typewriter hoarder! Do me!"

You're better off, Kabbage.

Kabbage
I-I could've grown out an ironically curled dapper mustache too... i-if... she had just asked...

Well, they cosplay together now and seem to be very happy, so I guess I'll just blow my brains out with this non-functioning steam-powered capsule-pipe laser pistol.

How to mess with a steampunk.

I just hate the word "steampunk". It sounds a euphemism of one of those really awful sex acts you read about on Urban Dictionary once in a while. Nevermind that everything ends up looking like that ridiculous train from the end of Back to the Future III.

For the Kool Moe Dee shooting himself bit.
And Jesus, why do Scientologists always have such ridiculous huge entourages? Are they afraid they might escape?

They're used to store excess thetans.

That's how cults work. You have to be immersed in their culture and control, or else you might get a glimpse of daylight and realize "Wait, I don't need any of this shit. All they're doing is using me and taking my money while telling me how to live."

That's probably what happened to Katie Holmes. Her handler got distracted for thirty seconds checking out a college girl in a low-cut top while waiting for Ms. Holmes to buy Pinkberry. Next thing he knows, she's out of Scientology, and he's chained below decks on a SeaOrg vessel doing manual labor.

I love that people have been walking around for two years with FREE KATIE T-shirts. And now she is!

John Holmes Motherfucker
Kenneth Branagh was in that fucking movie. Kenneth Branagh!
John Holmes Motherfucker
Actually, am I crazy, or was Kenneth Branagh the only good thing in that terrible movie? He seemed to be having a good time.

dead_cat
For reminding me how much i hated the Wild Wild West movie.
cognitivedissonance
The best part about this movie is all the stupid shit they forced into the movie that was SUPPOSED to be in the never-produced Kevin Smith/Tim Burton version of "Superman". That's how largely interchangeable big-budget blockbusters are.
