Professor Elemental wants to make the internet splendid!

image

I’ve been contacted by the splendid Professor Elemental (adventurer, tea drinker and bad ass emcee) to spread the word about his latest venture. His newest record is called Don’t Feed the Trolls and is a campaign to end trolling by simply ignoring them. After all, the reason they do it is to start arguments. Then they’ll either argue it out or slip out of the loop and watch everyone squabble among themselves.

The target to make a video for the track has been reached already. The rest of the funds will be spread out to various charities. Have a read of the press release below and have a think about donating. Continue reading “Professor Elemental wants to make the internet splendid!”

Professor Elemental performs Phineas & Ferb episode “steampunx”

Professor Elemental – everyone’s favourite eccentric adventurer and (I’m proud to say) friend of mine – has made a wonderful appearance on Phineas and Ferb. If you don’t have children around 5-10 years old, you may not have been subject to the crazy inventions of the kids on this Disney cartoon. It’s a madcap programme with two step-brothers (one English, the other American) and their pet Duck Billed Platypus called Perry (who is also a secret agent). It documents the adventures they have during the school holidays. Continue reading “Professor Elemental performs on Phineas and Ferb”

Professor Elemental is one of the most interesting characters in the steampunk community. From his recording studio at Elemental Manors, he creates beloved chap-hop tracks including Splendid, Elixir, Fighting Trousers (his diss song to Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer) as well as A Fete Worse than Death and Steampowered which directly references our charming sub-culture.

Despite his ridiculously busy schedule, I managed to corner him to ask a few questions about Geoffrey, Mr. B and tickling horses. Continue reading “Splendid interview with Professor Elemental”
