Bring back the typewritter

We have a penchant for slow things here. Machines that interrupt the speed freak dial of twitterdeck and face book status updates; electronic mail and texting that frequently betrays HOW WE  REALLY FEEL Snail mail has a precious authentic aura that is so hard to salvage these days (these daze). Our librarium is a space for slow reading and cups of tea. And slowly but surely soon we will be calling out for interested peoples to join us in slow tagging as we introduce a new archiving program here to catalogue all our delightful small press publications. In the meantime, we put the kettle on and take solace in listening to Michael Winslow and this typewriting performance.
