You know, I have access to a beautiful Remington portable typewriter. A 1930s pedigree, I believe. Belonged to my grandmother. It still looks and shines like brand new in its original travel case. Maybe I should drive it down to Portland and let Blue Moon have a go at it.

Then use a (real) keyboard to type a (real) letter on (real) paper using (real) ink, and mail it from a (real) post office to the local theater manager and complain. And CC the head of the theater company—using (real) carbon paper—while I'm at it.

Think they'd be deep enough to get the symbolism??

My mother used to type transcriptions for the courts when I was a child and I would help collate the pieces and play with the carbon copped after they were used, fun to draw on the back and get a "negative" of carbon hehe, it's a shock I still have trouble reading a negative since I was making them by hand as a child lol

We had a typewriter for "corrections" but a fancy IMB AT and line printer for the carbon sheets since it actually had a pressure head (I think micro pins to form letter shapes) for printing. The typewriter was fun, it was a sphere/ball head with the letters all surrounding the sphere, I was fascinated at how fast the ball would spin/rotate, and press as I typed. Sad they don't make the ink ribbons for those old machines anymore. I still have the computer, the printer, but the typewriter was replaced by a plastic electronic smith corona... Wish I still had the old typewriter...
