OK, Seal of Geek Approval!

Geekadelphia was nice enough to mention us TWICE on their website,

First, the Type-IN Jr. (SAT., Dec. 8th) — at Fergie’s Pub, 1214 Sansom St., 1pm-5pm.

( should you Wonder What Exactly Happens at a Type-IN, Click HERE!  )

BUT ALSO, they mentioned the following week’s OBSOLETE DEVOTION Analog Holiday Sale (Dec. 14-15-16, Fri-Sat-Sun) — which is what you do when you wind up with way too many pieces of Tech Classic. (typewriters, Rolodexes, Polaroid Cameras, Filofaxes and Etc.) You sell some so you can make room for more…

That happens from 6-9 p.m. This Fri-Sat-Sun. at Trophy Bikes University City, 3131 Walnut St.,  Philadelphia

(special note for Fountain Pen fanatics–sorry, we now only have a few, new Lamys for sale)

Drinking and Typing at America's Oldest Press Club

 

 Sometimes beer is a muse, sometimes it’s just a beverage. On April 27th, find out at an evening of typing fueled by craft brews from the U.S., Italy and Germany–with typewriters from those same countries.  We’ll also have a great beer-tasting, hosting the the Philadelphia Daily News’ Beer Reporter, Joe Sixpack.  $15 covers the tasting and some tasty snacks–bring a working manual typewriter and it’s just $10.  (we’ll provide nice stationery, stamped envelopes and a  copy of “The Writer’s Sidekick” — a hard-boiled thesaurus cooked up behind prison walls!)

Son of Type-IN is tomorrow

The Recipe:

About 6 or 8 of our typewriters, easy. Maybe more. Sure, Martin Remy (Remington Portable #1), you may come with us–ditto Herr Doktor Olympia S.M. Nein, and Oli Lettera 32. Who else? Well, we’d better bring a Quiet-Riter so things don’t get too Nois-Ee. I suppose that at this kind of high-class do, a Socialite would certainly be welcome–but we’d better bring that square, Mr. Smith-Corona Classic 12, as a chaperone. Beyond that, it will be potluck.

One long “church picnic” table, since we said “potluck.”

A portfolio stuffed with regular typing bond, nicer stationery, envelopes, stamps, and the Speed Typing document–up till now a carefully-kept secret (even from myself!) — it’s a selection from Ernst Kreuder’s novel, The Attic Pretenders — an escapist fable and the first book published in Germany after WWII.

A little tripod and a few various (yes, digital) cameras. A small stack of event programs, sure to increase in value if stored properly.

Two typewriters as Grand Prizes for the Speed Typing Competition. Some lesser, er, “typoswag” for the runners-up.

A couple of short, type-written Radio Commercial scripts (one for our bike shop, one for the US Postal Service) that I am going to try to get some lucky people to read at our Station Breaks. Any variety show worth its salt must have the traditional “Word From Our Sponsor”, right?

A comb–since CBS Sunday Morning says they’re bringing a TV crew!

Ah, I know there’s something else, but it will be on a list somewhere–just have to find my map which has all my lists marked on it.

A Personal Appeal: If you  are planning to come, do please RSVP to phillytyper@gmail.com, so we’ll now how many deviled eggs to bring!

— thanks for typing, and just as important, reading what others type.

cheers

ALL THE NEWS THAT’S FIT TO TYPE

Okay, a nice story in the New York Times right now about the rebooting of typewriters…

Makes typing sound visionary, yet normal.

I’d better go down and type something!

cheers
