Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!
Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics.
A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.
With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!
Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.
So here are some buzz words~
Tailors and dressmakers!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!
Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction! Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

I just recently reached a little over 1500 followers, I never thought I’d have so many people following me. ;w; So to thank you, I’ll be giving away one ink sketch and an 11x17 print of my newest Groot piece to one of my followers.
●You must be following me.
●Faves are acceptible as well as reblogs. Just please don’t spam your followers with it. (It really won’t increase your chances of winning by spamming…)
●Must have your inbox open so I can send a message and be comfortable with receiving mail.
●Sketches must be fandom related. (Preferably Marvel, sorry, no OCs this time! ;3; )
(This giveaway isn’t associated with Tumblr)
●This will end on August 31, 2014
Uhhh…! I might add a piece of custom tentacle jewelry to the giveaway since I’m less than 130 followers away from 2k. *__*” I’ll only add something to it if I reach it before the deadline though.
Thank you all for the amazing support!
We’ve been over whelmed with comments and questions for the past week, so we would like to answer some frequently asked questions here!
Q: When and where can I order a pair?
A: We are currently working making a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign. Once the Kickstarter is up, hopefully in a month or two, you can pre-order through the Kickstarter. We will e-mail everyone and post the link to the Kickstarter when that happens. If you haven’t signed up for e-mail updates yet, you can do so at http://www.axentwear.com/
Q: How much will the headphones cost?
A: We’re aiming to keep the price as low as possible without compromising quality. The price we’ve decided on is $115.
Q: Will you ship internationally?
A: Yep! Though shipping prices will be different than domestic orders. We are not in control of how much shipping companies charge.
Q: Do the cat ear speakers actually work?
A: Yes, the speakers are fully functional so you can switch between listening to your music silently or sharing your music with your friends!
Q: Will they come in multiple colors?
A: Yes! And when you pre-order through our Kickstarter, you can vote on which top colors will be produced.
Q: Will they be wireless? Will they come with a mic? LED lights? And if so, will the LED lights change colors?
A: That will depend on how much money we can raise through Kickstarter. The more pre-orders we get, the more funds we have to add even more cool features to the headphones without increasing the cost to you! So when the Kickstarter goes live, please support us by pre-ordering a pair! The more fund we raise, the more features your headphones will have :)
Q: My question wasn’t answered here?
A: Please be patient. We’re still working out the final details of certain features. We want to be absolutely certain before we answer a question. If your question hasn’t been answered yet, it will be in the near future so stay tuned! :D
Thank you all again for the amazing level of support! We look forward to bringing you a new music experience!

"Don’t you think it would be cool if Falcon was also in Avengers 2?"
I would dance the dance of joy. I would dance the goddamn Mamushka. I would DO A JIG on top of Mount Coot-tha while wearing some kind of home-made Falcon t-shirt.
I’m just saying.
I want Steve to just show up at Avengers Tower like, “He comes with me.”
And Tony is just kind of like, “Okay, sure,” because he’s heard about Sam from Hill, and so Sam ends up on Steve’s floor in another apartment, and when Tony realizes that Sam’s wings came from Stark Industries he spends a few days mechanically Bedazzling the fuck out of them, while Sam and Tony debate the merits of classic rock versus R&B.
(And then there’s the time Cap shows up with Bucky and says, “He also comes with me,” and Tony just sort of sighs and hands him keys to that other apartment on Steve’s floor, because he’s quickly learned that some Avengers have a bad habit of bringing home other superpowered freaks like they’re lost puppies or something, like that time Clint showed up with a brunette and a dog and didn’t even bother to ask for keys to the other apartment on his floor, just picked the lock instead.)
