Why type with a Everest? Because I can. Why own an Everest… because it was there. You just have to see’s its inner cuteness…
It looks nice… oh so pretty… but it may take a while for me to warm up to machine.
Great fun… seeing another perspective of the 1960’s was both moving and mind expanding.
For more information regarding this movie… read Mr. Robert Messenger’s post on his blog ozTypewriter. Mr. Messenger is Australian and provide both insight and knowledge regarding this movie and the times it depicts. (Gee).
One day of rest and things began to stick… so out on the desk and insert a page and type… type… type and the more I typed the better the flow. This 59 year old will work itself back into trim in no time at all.
To read a really good review on the Studio 44 check out I dream lo-tech from July 5, 2012 Olivetti Studio 44 meets its match. The blog comes from Chicago (where I grew-up) so perhaps there is a connection (but that would depend on the answer to the following questions? Ton S: 1) Cubs or Sox? 2) Who played Oliver O. Oliver on Bozo Circus? 3) Paddle-foot was a character on what cartoon? And last and not least: Name the “King of the United States”
Any one of a certain age will know these answers without a thought. “Lets play two”… If you you can’t answer you are younger than I am and if you call the Cubs… Cubbies… then much younger.
There is that moment when a show runs out of fresh thoughts and ideals… they get desperate… they jump the shark! Has typeoh! Reached the point when the only thing to consider is the consideration of thought is so desperate I can only think of “Happy Days?”… (NOT!!)
Today I found a Underwood Touchmaster Five for $5.00… when I started the day I was looking at an Olivetti M40 for $198.00.
If the Olivetti was going for $40.00 I might have gone a different way. Things change… and I like to keep my change.
Started out typing in all “lower caps” then switched to ALL CAPS… I thought I would just relax and do nothing… but nothing takes some effort.
Just should have gone with the flow and not tried to make my day “easy”. That would have been easier… and without trying I would have had my “low-key day”.
100 years ago Brooks used the name Climax for their B-50 saddle and I found another ad from 1913 where another brand used this word as well. Brooks is thinking about brining this line back. They said it would improve my chances to be a “tester” of the new saddle if I offered my view. I did… but even if I’m not given a “Climax”… just thinking about it… I found uplifting.
