Steampunk at Mark Twain

This week we checked out the Steampunk Ball and exhibit at the Mark Twain House. While Steampunk was a mystery to us, it turned out to be pretty cool in a mid 1990's Marilyn Manson/Nine Inch Nails type of way. It was quite a night at the Twain House as Sad City friend Craig The Porn Star joined us in a ghost tour, the Steampunk exhibit and the Steampunk ball. Pics weren't allowed on the tour and the ball was too dark for good pics but check out more of the exhibit after the jump.


  1. Sam was always ahead of his time. I think he's enjoying the displays.

  2. Did you guys see any ghosts?

  3. I aint't afraid of no ghosts. Nor did I see any. I'm sure the trip will be discussed on WCCC Wednesday night.
