New Typewriters?

I’ve been out of the loop for quite a while… Life gets busy. So busy that I don’t even have time to typecast this post. However, my wife shared something she came across and I thought I’d pass it on, though, as I already stated, I’ve been out of the loop for so long that this may come as old news to the rest of you. If so, I apologize for my redundancy.

Here is a link to read about what appears to be new typewriters. I don’t know much about it as I’m sharing this on the run.



Brief Words









L.A. County Fair writing competition

Interestingly enough, I hadn’t even seen this story prior to my daughter submitting it for the writing competition. I’m obviously proud of my little writer.


L.A. County Fair

My four little tykes.

Mickey Mouse typewriter

There was a really cool animation exhibit at the fair, and needless to say that Disney was obviously well-represented. Here’s a cool little Mickey Mouse typewriter toy.

Animation Studio typewriter

Warner Bros was also well-represented at the animation exhibit. Here’s a little Royal typewriter that featured in animation history.

Sightings in SoCal

Griffith Observatory

I shot this looking down on Hollywood, from the Griffith Observatory. I personally like visiting Griffith more for its art deco style than for the star-gazing.




I hate visiting the Griffith on busy days, because its parking lot is so full that you wind up having to park on the road winding down the hill. In this shot I took from the observatory, you can see the road in the middle of the shot there, with all the cars parked down that road. People had to park even lower down the road than that.
You can see the Hollywood sign in the far hill there. The sky was becoming overcast from the misty clouds rolling in from the ocean as evening drew near, making for a cold evening by the time we left.

Erika typewriter at the Skirball Center, Los Angeles, Ca

This Erika typewriter represents one of the many items Jewish immigrants brought with them to America in the early-to-mid 20th century.

Here’s a close-up of the Hammond typewriter. It’s pretty cool looking.

Singer sewing machine at the Skirball Center, Los Angeles, Ca

I don’t sew, but it would be cool to have one of these.

Stature of Liberty torch at the Skirball Center, Los Angeles, Ca

This is the 1/3 scale of the Statue of Liberty torch in the museum at the Skirball.

While the photo below makes me cringe at the thought of ruining a good typewriter to house a plant, this is a pretty cool article to peruse. If you like books and plants, check it out HERE.
