Steampunk on Sunday: Terry Gilliam
Ladies and gentlemen.
before we move onto today's
Steampunk on Sunday
I'd like to take this opportunity to mention
presently running on my other blog.
You are very welcome to throw your hat into the ring,
risk the fates and win some stuff.
Terry Gilliam introduced ephemeral images

to modern telly

His flying naked women,
his figures doomed to terrible fates
in hand-cranked machines,
Oh. You're thinking of the man who directed
the utterly brilliant Twelve Monkeys?
The man who made Brazil
(my favourite film.
Just don't watch the
'Love Conquers All' version.
Patsy in Monty Python and the Holy Grail?
Still not convinced?
How about Conrad Poohs & his Dancing Teeth
(which seem to be performing to a steam organ).
That's Steampunk, right?
