Simon Jansen built this fully functional steam-powered record player out of a desire to make something authentically steampunk.  His attempts at making a true gramophone, horn and everything, went awry, and so he settled on a turntable that was spun by the power of steam.

He has another video of his engine, Nigel, playing a Sex Pistols record, just to put the “punk” in steampunk, but we like this one better.

She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
