future contemporaries

What Kind of Punk are You?
  • Stonepunk: The use of time period-accurate materials to make contemporary contraptions ("Stonepunk doesn't exist" you might be saying "It's too far fetched!" Well, go to your dance search engine and look for "The Flintstones")
  • Sandlepunk: Old Greek/Roman style and ingenuity combined with post-modernism
  • Clockpunk: (Can be its own Punk) Renascence era, or 'The Age of Enlightenment' aesthetic with modern contraptions (I like to think of Ella Enchanted with the crank escalator and such)
  • Edopunk: Post-modernism combined with the Japanese Edo period. It could also be called that if something like steampunk were combined with traditional Japanese aesthetic
  • Steampunk: A healthy combination of Victorian ingenuity and aesthetic combined with some contemporary/futurism technology and concepts
  • Dieselpunk: (It can also be its own Punk) A combination of the oil age and contemporary/futurism
  • DecoPunk: (Can be a subset of Diesel) Focuses on the 20's-50's Art Deco design (I know one person who would love this)
  • Atompunk: 1940s-60s modernism, which includes the Atomic age and the Space Age (could also be considered Raygun Gothic)
  • Nowpunk: Contemporary Punkness... Not really too much to explain.
  • Cyberpunk: Extreme futurism normally associated with dystopia (The Matrix is a great example of Cyberpunk)
  • Biopunk: Focuses on the underground bio-technical revolution. This is different from Cyperpunk because it focuses on biology, not technology
  • Mythpunk: A combination of post-modernism and mythology and folklore.
  • Dreampunk: The use of any of the above Punk styles and combine it with Fairytales and storybooks (I have this kid an idea to write a story about a time-traveling Red Riding Hood and it was ecstatic about it)
