TypewritersAreSexy.com invites everyone to celebrate and write on manual typewriters for free! Come to Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Blvd., Venice, CA 90291 on Sunday, September 23 from 1-5 p.m.
Who knew you could make typing on a manual typewriter sound like an E-ticket ride at Disneyland?
Use John Lennon’s, Ray Bradbury’s, or Orson Welles’ typewriter for $100 donation.
If I type on Ray’s and Orson’s keyboards I hope some of their residual talent will be osmotically transmitted through my fingertips. (How will you know? First clue: I’ll stop using words like “osmotically.”)
