Steampunk... Yay or Nay?

I'll admit I'm a fan of Steampunk. I know. I know. It condemns me to the bowels of Hell with all the other terminally geeky losers who enjoy neo-victorian fantasy, gears-to-nowhere and imaginary steam powered vehicles.

Now, let us discuss Good Steampunk VS Bad Steampunk.

A functional super-awesome steampunk-modded computer by the Steampunk Workshop = GOOD

Overly complicated and utterly-useless only-for-show Steampunk Monacle? BAD

Orgasm-worthy Steampunked laptop by Datamancer... GOOD

Steampunk Cake = Good

Steampunk R2-D2 = Awesome

Pasting a random collection of watch parts and non-working gears/copper/brass piping to any and everything? Bad
