It's an old trend -- a very old one, that's becoming the newest new trend -- utilizing 19th century things from Victorian England -- fashion, machines, furniture, and fictional technological inventions like those found in Jules Verne and H.G. Wells -- hand-made objects you can take apart and put back together, the opposite of the iPhone with its shiny impenetrable exterior, it's impregnable interior.

Hi Emily,
Thanks for sending me this! It was wonderful.
I was born in 1951 was watched Fred and Ginger movies with my mother on the MILLION DOLLAR MOVIES! I must be a Streampunk,(not sure of the spelling.) Where today many people don't know or care about things like who invented this or that,(the toaster or the TV tube for examples,)things from the past, I find myself wanting to know who made our lives easier.
As an aside, my whole family are fans of Northern Exposure.
Best Wishes
JD Holiday

Adorable! And your discussion reminds me of how, when I was a kid, I liked to take things apart, see how they were made, and see if I could put them back together again. BTW, there are how-to videos that can show you how to take an iPhone apart and fix it, and there are non-Apple-related services that do this all the time. So, those shiny little wonders are not so impregnable! :-)

Really nice video. You seem much more relaxed than you did in the earlier videos.
