Video of the day -- Dr Steel Back and Forth

This video is from 2009.  "Dr Steel" was an independent musician and internet/YouTube personality with a dedicated following, influenced by steampunk and transhumanism.  After twelve years of activity, he abruptly disappeared in 2011 from the scene he had created.  His fan organization, the "Army of Toy Soldiers", still exists and promotes his philosophy; some of the members appear on his screen in this video.

Ohhh love!
I can see the steampunk influence. And it has a bunker chic aesthetic to it that I find charming. Very Rhythm Nation, too. Fun!

The "bunker chic aesthetic" is part of why it appeals to me -- especially during covid-19, when we're mostly hunkered down at home and communicating with each other on video screens.

Very creative and only a little strange to me.

This is the first time I've heard of him. Weird to have just up and disappeared.

Creative indeed, and strange enough.

It looks like Rion Vernon, who created the persona of Dr Steel, left that scene and now just works as an artist (see Mike's link). Hopefully he'll return, though. Being Dr Steel sounds much cooler.
