Steampunk stilettos

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

 

The dictionary defines “culture” as an anthropological manifestation of human intellectual achievement, which is collectively assigned value and meaning.

Wow, that’s impressive! Who knew that Boy George named his group “Culture Club” after an intellectual manifestation?

Our world is like a big vat of yogurt chock full of culture; curdled governments, fermented values, sour foreign relations, and sometimes a little granola-flavored tradition thrown in to add texture.

But that’s just the surface of human culture. Peel away the veneer of acceptable standards, and much like ripping the bark off a fallen rotting tree trunk, you’ll find a mass of insects busily living out their lives in another world.

That’s subculture. 

New Mexico is known for its UFO subculture. The “forensic evidence” of the 1947 Roswell spaceship crash by ET’s second cousin once-removed is proof positive to warp-driven space cadets that aliens have visited our planet (and were lousy pilots).

Within a generation, other alienation wannabes invaded the subcutaneous layers of society. A visit to a Comic Con (convention) reveals what otherwise-normal people do on their weekends.
