Yet another example of how the conqueror of the aether exclusively trusts his life to the fine products of Dr. Grordbort, weaponeer to the crown.

I cannot believe there is absolutely nothing I want to write about today. Not a damn thing. I looked at the usual rack of websites for inspiration: nothin'.

So, how about a little bit of miscellaneous fun. Via io9, here's a short film from film students at New Zealand's Media Design School, based on the wonderfully fun steampunk/pulp science props/collectibles from WETA's Dr. Grordbort-verse.

Phwew. That was a full sentence. To break it down a bit, WETA--the CGI and props studio that does stuff for Peter Jackson (e.g. the weapons for Jackson's Lord Of The Rings) has a really cool sideline selling Victorian weird science weaponry designed by Greg Broadmore. Wave Disruptor Pistols, Sub-Atomic Disintegrator Pistols, Infinity Beam Projectors, and assorted other devices from a past future that never was. Fins and bulbs and antennae all over these things. And the students at MDS got permission to an official short, seen above. It isn't perfect, but it's fun.

It puts me in the mood to referee a Space: 1889 campaign, but who has the time?
