Be sure to inhale deeply of the ever-crispening, Autumn air; carve a pumpkin for your front porch (& make a pie with the innards), but most of all don't forget to acquire a copy of my classic recording, "Veronique Chevalier's Polka Haunt Us: A Spook-tacular Compilation." It never goes out of season!

* Veronique Featured in Gorgeous Steamgoth Magazine "El Investigador!"

Bonjour Chere 'Fiends' & Fan(g)s!

A nefarious character calling himself Profesor Lecumberri slipped this link into my Inbox today. I can think of no better way to kick off Halloween Season than with an eyeful of Steamgoth in Spanish.

The article about the Mad Sonics & Music of La Moi is on pages 19 & 20. There are also wonderful articles about Voltaire, Gothic Lolita, & ever morbidly maddening, dark & sundry subjects.

Let the beastly feast commence!

* What is "Steamku?"

My Cog-IsBiggerThan-Your-Cog-Book
SteamKu, is quite simply, "Droll Haiku on the subject of Steampunkery."

Instead of being buoyed aloft in the Aethers purely by steam, it is ardently hoped that one is also capable of being uplifted by somewhat indecorous humour; fun-pokery, and on occasion, a certain lack of seriousity.

I beg you, Dear Reader, do not take it as a *personal* affront- this skewering of Steampunkery- for indeed, one intended to be as broadly offensive as possible, so as to insult the greatest number, with the least amount of verbiage.

One found refuge in the paradoxical form known as Haiku, which on the one hand, forces all its practioners to adhere uniformly & unfailingly, (come Hell, high water, or tentacles), to 17 syllables, whilst on the other, giving the air of minimal effort, lack of strain, and very little evidence of extended bouts of nail-biting & self-flagelation.

One deems this form of verse to be the perv-ect vehicle with which to leave a few tyre treads over certain inhospitable portions of a sub-culture- for the most part charming- that is threatened, every-once-in-a-great-while, by over-zealous adherents, who may have a tendency to froth over into waves of pomposity, at but the slightest provocation.

The, at times, lurid verbiage & retina-staining full-color illustrations contained in the missive "My Cog Is Bigger Than Your Cog: SteamKu & Other Verbstrocities" by Veronique Chevalier & Walter Sickert, is the maiden voyage of this new artform, which one can only hope, shall serve to defuse efforts by persons of especially steamful inclination, to pass judgement (or gas) upon their fellows & fellettes of aetheric-tendancies.

With great eSTEAM,

MADemoiselle Veronique & Monsieur Walter
