So, I have been following the progress of Gary Nicholson and Christopher Lockett's movie project The Typewriter (in the 21st century) with some interest since word of it first spread around the typosphere several months ago. And I am rather jealous that Clemens got to have his day on camera, although I guess I can (sort of) understand that ye olde Schweiz is really far from the U.S., and I will have to settle for the occasional guest spot in Georg's amateur productions :-)
I have also been meaning to donate to their Kickstarter page, which was set up to raise a humble $20,000, with fantastic prizes for all levels of giving from $10 and up. Procrastinator that I am, today was the day I made my way over, and I was shocked to see that there are only FIVE days left! And while my pockets aren't deep enough to help them leap a great deal towards their goal (progress currently at 39%), I signed up nevertheless, a process much less painful than I had anticipated (Kickstarter processes payments through Amazon, where you probably have an account already). I cannot wait to receive my free swag - including a DVD with bonus features! - once the movie is funded and made. The catch is that - as I understand it - the funding goals will need to be met before the pledges are collected. If you haven't done so already, I would encourage you to take a look at the project and think about a donation within your means.
Now, on to a few market sightings from last week - a very productive day, but nothing special enough to warrant the purchase:
