TWO TYPE-INs coming to Philadelphia: 13 Sept. + 19 Oct.



SO– Here’s the scoop: first one (Friday, 19 Sept.)  is a big benefit to help make the 215 Lit Fest happen. So it costs money (a cool twenty), but you will have a good time in a bookstore like you have never seen.There will be typewriters, including an Olivetti Lettera 32 on auction, and other goodies.


Second one (Sat., 19 October) is part and parcel of the 215 Fest, which will bring a great array of literary and musical talent to Philadelphia. It’s outside, free and will feature amplified typewriter haiku… among other things! DETAILS SOON.

Could this be a typecast?

Waltham watch (fixed, then pulled the stem out--so unfixed); typecast, eraser.

New Year’s Resolution: get the DTs

SO… there’s the bad kind of DTs — the Delirium Tremens that comes when someone–in this case, Ray Milland in The Lost Weekend, tries to kick a (very) Bad Habit. Then there’s Daily Typing–the DT that I am considering making into a Good Habit. Any Daily Typers out there? What’s that like, knowing you’ll bang the keys every day?

Or anyone considering making a Daily Typing pledge for 2011?
