 Hello all,

I thought I would give this a last push so that local people could hear about it and come out to show off their latest work, should they like to do so.

It promises to be a grand time.

Attention Ladies and Gentlemen!

We have for you an opportunity that is not to be missed by any respectable adventurer, anachronologist or temporal voyager. Count Marcus Dumas and The Oneiroi Society will be unveiling the latest advance in temporal exploration, with the goal of bringing your favorite moments in time directly to you!

Please keep in mind that the group of people we can bring along on this first venture is extremely limited, but the rewards for being there first are limitless. Who knows? We may even meet the Master of the House himself! Interested? Read on!

The first T.E.M.P.U.S is an Immersion event beginning at the Mark Twain House & Featuring:

TEMPUS (Temporal Escapes Made Possible Using Science)

Discussions about Mark Twain and other educational topics of interest* with Samuel Clemens, aka “Mark Twain”, direct from the 1880s!

Tempus Tea Party with Miss Kitty.(Tickets $10) Afternoon Tea and Delicious Delectable with the always beautiful and effervescent Miss Kitty! Be sure to attend her earlier discussion on Victorian (and Steampunk) Tea Etiquette!

Steampunk’s favorite bard- and Chief Bow-tie Inspector- Matt DeBlass

Workshops including a maker’s crafting workshop and more

A display of Fine Steampunk Art

Merchant shopping at our Temporally Shifted Vendors including Big Bear Trading Co.

A plethora of photo opportunities including your chance to be photographed inside Mark Twain’s home… with Mark Twain himself, pulled directly from the 1880s to this event!

Guided tours of Mark Twain’s home and…

The premiere of Neurotic Film’s documentary on the beloved Dr. Grymm,

At City Steam, we’re ending things with a bang through the lyrical beauty of Eli August and the old school new romantic stylings of Platform one. And now we’re upping the ante, bringing you the most fun gypsypunks around, Frenchy & The Punk (formerly The Gypsy Nomads) (www.thegypsynomads.com)!

Oneiroi Productions, the masterminds behind the Steampunk World's Fair, invite guests to go back to the future with TEMPUS.

TEMPUS is designed to steep the visitor into the Steampunk universe, whether or an
aficionado or a first-time novice. Oneiroi Productions’ event organizer Josh Marks
states, “Our focus with TEMPUS events is on the educational aspects of Steampunk.
Because the genre is set in an alternate history, there are great opportunities to bring
people out to get educated on aspects of art, history, literature and culture…The events
are immersion events, which is basically an interactive acting experience. The staff
members will have roles laid out in advance to interact with the patrons. Patrons are
welcome to join in the fun with their own Steampunk persona, but are not required to.”

The Mark Twain House & Museum program is 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The City Steam Brewery Café Music Event is 6:30 p.m. to midnight.

Tickets for TEMPUS are $45 forThe Mark Twain House & City Steam events;

$35 for The Mark Twain House & Museum Events only; $20 for the City Steam Event only.

For the full array of offerings and tickets, visit www.steampunktempus.com.
Discounted tours of The Mark Twain House will be available, as well.

Included in the Steampunk TEMPUS admission is access to the new American Storytellers: Norman Rockwell & Mark Twain exhibition. The Murasaki Café at The Mark Twain House will
be open for lunch that day.

Pity I'm sick (and don't actually have much in the way of steampunk costuming - I've been too broke and not had events to justify taking on big projects, especially with so many other incomplete projects laying around).

Are there a lot of other Steampunk types around here? I've been bored as hell stuck here living with my folks with all my friends in cities hours away.

Sam Clemens' grave
Since I can't make it to Hartford tonight, I'll stop on by a little known piece of history in my home town. The grave site of Samuel Langhorn Clemens at Woodlawn National Cemetery.
