Firstly, I like your photo, however:
Being from a different generation, could you please explain, to a geriatric ignoramus, what a 'steampunk' is?

Hi Strokebloke. There's a few definitions on urbandictionary.com but these are 2 of my favourites -
"Steampunk is a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. It could be described by the slogan "What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner." It includes fiction with science fiction, fantasy or horror themes. "
"A type of subculture that mixes the clothing styles of past generations (such as the Victorian era) with modern conveniences, creating inventions that look as if they could have been created generations ago. For instance, a gameboy would be powered by steam and contain clockwork parts rather than silicon and electrical wiring. This "mad-scientist" culture is based on works by such authors as Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Related to the Punk subculture by the "Do-It-Yourself" attitude, though many steampunks will buy ready made materials and customize them. The entire subculture is based on mostly on aesthetics, though functionality is highly prized as well."
