Worldwide Typewriter Day 2011

Ted & Tori travel to the Brinton Desert Botanical Garden (like a mile away) to celebrate World Typewriter Day 2011 by typing on their matched 1964 Hermes 3000’s in the 108 degree heat.

Matched 1964 Hermes 3000's - Easy and Joanie

Our Typewriter day video. Hopefully watching two people type is less boring than watching one person type. :D
We decided to celebrate the event with a quick trip to take our video in a suitably vegetated environ.

  1. Ace video! Looks hot – hope you found refreshment. And a history lesson. Top value post.

  2. I feel like part of your family, typing on my own Hermes 3000 for Typewriter Day:)

  3. A very cool video on a very hot day.
    Yes, two stars are better than one. And matching Hermes 3000’s, how cool is that!

    Cheers, Ted & Tori!

  4. My favorite part of these videos is seeing each persons individual typing style. Goes to show how typewriters are such a personalized tool. Each machine is unique and each user adds their own flair. Great video and pictures! I’m sweating just by looking at them.

    1. Heh, we were definitely sweating! Our sunglasses had little pools of sweat building up.

  5. You know, in that forth picture below the video, the cactus’s shadow looks like Kokopelli. Wonder if that’s significant.
