YOU SAY PARTY’s “Lonely Lunch” video has got it all: off-the-grid filesharing, subcontinental slum-techno-chic, secret police in steampunk pestmeester helmets, and a plot that remixes District 9 and Children of Men. I only wish it ended with a big, tattoo-baring Bollywood dance number.[via BoingBoing]
Uh, there’s nothing particuarly steampunk about this video. It’s pretty much straight-up cyberpunk.
You’re right about cyberpunk�but I used “steampunk” specifically in reference to the helmets, which have a bit (just a bit) of a steampunk flavor. And I live in Boston, the capital of steampunk, so I get to decide.
