Behold the Nekkid-Riter!
Post-Script: This project came out pretty well. The machine types great, and I love the style of type face. The storage/carrying box project will have to wait for next week at the earliest - unless I get ambitious.
I'm willing to accept differences in spelling the word "nekkid"; I've also seen "nekked." I like the first version because it renders the pronunciation more, um, "red of the neck."
We returned Friday evening from our pleasant Tucson vacation, and I have enough "film in the can" for two more episodes of the Typewriter Video Series. The latest is episode 8, embedded below. I was able to edit and upload episode 7 while we stayed at the Big Blue House B & B; their Internet connection is fast, enough such that it only took about 35 minutes to render and upload an 8-minute video, from the iPad.
I really do wish I could attend the upcoming Tucson Type-In, this summer; perhaps I can makes plans far enough in advance. Living here in New Mexico feels at times like being on the edge of nowhere; unless I get off my butt and do some planning, there'll probably never be an Albuquerque Type-In. Speaking of which, someone who's better-experienced at these should publish an online "How to Conduct Your Very Own Type-In" document, for us newcomers to the genre.
