I Support the Past Stamp by Twilight-Deviant I Support the Past Stamp by Twilight-Deviant
Yup. I'm not very big on SciFi future stuff, but my favorites are when the people in the future go back to dressing like in the Victorian era. It gives me (false) hope that it might actually happen. (/=A=)/ ~~~<3

If you'll notice my lazily animated clock hands in the bottom left corner, they're going backwards.




Viva la steampunk~

Steampunk is awesome. Have you seen Firefly? They all dress kinda like cowboys and Victorians/regency/Edwardian era in that, it's pretty awesome.

I have not. I hear it's really good though. And wasn't it kind of a short series?
Anyway, costumes sound cool at the least. :p

It was, it was cancelled after the first season, which was thirteen episodes. There was a movie though, and there's a comic series. But it was an awesome show that didn't deserve to be cancelled.

One season and it was cancelled, but in my opinion that's only because it aired on Fox instead of Syfy, where it probably would've done way better. I still wonder why Syfy didn't pick it up. It has a huge fanbase and is a fantastic series.

Hmm. That is kind of an odd channel for a show like that to come on. >___> No wonder it didn't last long.

I have just added it to my Netflix instant watch. Maybe I'll get bored soon. XD

Pah on the Victorian Era (I consider that period overrated at this point XD). Now the 1920s...oh, GOD, yes!

Not me. My love for the Victorian Era is real and it's deep. I'd worship it if it was an acceptable religion. It has everything I need: favorite clothes, favorite books, and I'm quite taken with the rules of society as they were. Not that there's anything wrong with the 1920s. It still had its own manner of class, after all. Just a little too much violence from the prohibition and depression from the war for my taste. Nope, give me an 1870s dandy any day. :p

And the 1800s didn't have violence? O_O The Civil War (granted, not 1870s, but a decade back) is recorded as one of the bloodiest battle ever. XD

Actually, the appeal of the Depression kind of gets to me. Not in that "I like seeing people suffer" way, but on the idea that after the Great War and before 1929, there was a time when the culture, people, arts, and society changed so drastically. It was a time for innovation and pazazz - basically a lot of conservative rules breaking (if not temporarily) for wider appeal. It's this small niche circle of hedonistic change that oddly appeals to me. Also, I love the 20s (and to an extent, the 30s and 40s) for their impeccable fashion sense. Men in suits have never looked hotter.

Well, when I think Victorian Era, I always go to Europe. Us over here in America were still getting our crap together. I mean, you've still got stuff like the Paris Commune and little bloody skirmishes going on, but I think that's pretty much par for the course in history. I just see the violence associated with prohibition as so... tactless. And it wasn't just like death and blood. All sorts of crime rates rose, ya know. Such nasty business.

I'm sort of weird in that I kind of hate the change that came around about that time. I mean, as far as society changes go, it was like the beginning of the end of common courtesy. As far as the art goes, the first thing that really comes to my mind is that it was the birth period of surrealism and abstract expressionism. And it sort of makes me mad that some of those have garnered so much acclaim as being "art". I just sort of like wouldn't have been that upset if things had never changed from the way they were.

Oh, but then the fashion. Now, I do like fedoras over tophats, BUT I will always prefer the fact that three-piece suits were much more common. Between the 1920s and 40s was about the time they started dying out. And then I'll take a man in a cravat or an ascot over a guy in a tie any day. And don't even get me STARTED on women's dresses. My gosh, I have a strong love for bustles and corsets. And I'm not saying that hats were a foreign concept in the 1920s, but the idea of going outside in the Victorian Era without a hat on was so unheard of that I find it positively delicious.

Now, I no there's really no point to this. You see the 1920s as greater, I prefer somewhere around the 1870s. And while I do like the 20s as well, I really just see it as the beginning of a decline to everything I love about the Victorian Era.

I can raise a glass to that! What was that phrase, "I don't agree with what you said, but I will defend your right to say it." One of my favorite quotes because it perfectly exemplifies that we don't have to like the same things, but we have the right to say what's in our mind; differing interest/conflicts/whatever. ^^
