Kind of like steam punk, but with internal combustion. Streamlined and chrome.

A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.

Dieselpunk is an art style and subculture that blends the aesthetics / pop culture of the 1920s - 1950s with today. To dieselpunks, the "diesel era" was a time defined by warfare, Art Deco, pulp heroes, swing music, and noir gum shoes.

Its akind of like steampunk, except with internal combustion, because steampunk wasn't dirty enough.
Me and John saw a group of cosplayers in a steampunk show that didn't look victorian at all. They wore fedoras, goggles, ww2 gear and retro-futurist tech, but from a different timeline. Turns out they were dieselpunks

Trustafarian types who spend hundreds of dollars on Diesel Jeans, $100 shoes, $75 haircuts, yet pretend to be punk, hardcore, whatever, merely paying lip service to the ideals behind the actual punk community. Can also be filed under hipster.

Generally a waste of time and space.

Known to like fake emo bands as can be seen on Fuse TV, or whatever else is hot this week.

No actual connection to the punk subculture.
Damian is such a diesel punk - he's just spent $40 to see that goddamn faker Dashboard Confessional.
