Cup of Brown Joy

Chap-hop: a musical form derived from hip-hop and practiced mainly by genteel British men.

While some rappers are deliberately, gloriously steampunk (go, Professor Elemental!), others are not (Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer mixes 1930's style elements with modern ones).

Since steampunk tickles me, and tea delights me, it should come as no surprise that "Cup of Brown Joy" is my favorite chap-hop music video (though Fighting Trousers runs a close second).

When I say "herbal," you say "No thanks." Clever, clever. Lovely.
