In retrospect, with a few notable exceptions, there was really nothing punk about The Fad Which Shall Not Be Named. Steampop might have been a better word. Fortunately, the steam in these posts is not, generally, even aspiring to “punk” status, although the word itself may, regrettably, appear a couple times in the copy on the linked pages. Please accept our apologies for that–we were excited–and enjoy this hot steamy content entirely on its own merits.
