Typewriter Meme-o-ries!

Seen them? Got them? Maybe even made them? 

Let the typewriter meme games begin...

Re: Typewriter Meme-o-ries!

I've seen a variant of the "You're not a real hipster" one. Sadly, it's accurate.

The corollary sadly, of course, being, 'You ARE a real hipster if...'

Re: Typewriter Meme-o-ries!

True enough. There was something about this in the Polt book -- some guy took his portable to the High Line trail park in Manhattan; got photographed typing. Next thing you know he's all over the internet with the caption, "You're not a real hipster unless you take your typewriter to the park." 

Maybe not a hipster necessarily, but potentially a poser. Others may disagree.

I am familiar with the high line.  I was familiar with it for years and hoped all that time that it would somehow be preserved as a bit of Manhattan history before what was left of it was inevitably torn down -- a fate it only avoided so long because of the difficulty of demolishing heavy steel structures, neglect being an easier route.

Then it was preserved and I visited the top exactly once and walked its length with all the other what I did not know to call hipsters then but who most certainly are thinking how cool they are to be walking on the high line. That ruined it for me. I guess you can't have it both ways: it can't be both neglected and preserved. It was cool when it was unloved and surviving, now there is something missing when it is served up as a prepackaged bit of coolness requiring you only to join the madding crowd.
