Eternal thanks to Brandon, who did the layout for ST’s 1 and 2 in Adobe InDesign, a program I do not understand in the least.
Congratulations, you’re the winner of the leather journal, chosen by my lovely assistant, a random interweb number picker (after adjusting for super advanced math concepts such as multiple posts by the same person, etc.)
Alex, e-mail me your mailing address and I shall whisk the prize off to you.
Yet another drawing for a new prize is just around the corner. At this rate, I need to hire a slick-haired elderly gentleman with a booming voice to handle all these contests.
Here is a strangely comforting forum discussion about the scourge of the dwindling attention span.
I know that I have some questions to answer about the typewriter journal project. I am assembling a Q&A, so look for it in the next week. Note that the deadline is June 15th, not May 30th. (Do you get the sense I am winging the details of this project? Worry not. It will get done.)
In other news, welcome to the First Official Strikethru Drawing For A Random Prize (FOSDFARP), which in this case is a set of three typewriter buttons from the Regional Assembly of Text.
Instructions to win: leave a comment on this post, in which you make a random remark about ephemera, pens, buttons, typewriters, cameras, or any related item of paper-based nerd-dom, for the entertainment of your fellow entrants.
You: “I’m too cool to enter this drawing.”
Me: Wrong. Everyone into this general scribeomechanical hobby is a nerd. Face facts.
You: “I don’t wear buttons.”
Me: I am sure you know a person/bulletin board that does, and we need to get the typewriting message out there, my friends.
You: “How will you pick the winner?”
Me: The winner will be chosen at random and announced on the blog sometime in June. Winner will e-mail me their address, and I will send em off this cool set of buttons, whereupon they shall bask in the glory of winning the FOSDFARP.
You: “Why the hell are you having a FOSDFARP? What is this, Publisher’s Clearing House?”
Me: I thought someone might like some typewriter buttons, and it’s time to shake things up out there in the typosphere. It’s CONTEST TIME!!!
Leave a comment. You know you want to. By the way, are there any new or prospective typecasters out there that aren’t listed in my Typosphere list? If so, I want to hear about it.
