"Put a bird on it": The aftermath

What is all this thing Portlandia peeps are all talking about?


Put a bierde on it

So, if the bird event in the BS campaign trail occured March 26, but the meme was invented around the week of May 10, but the Portlandia theme "Put a bird on it" was created as far back as 2011, people don't believe in time travel because why?

rejection notices from publishers
It"s never an easy task making sense of what producers are after when they suggest edits to one"s screenplay
WebLank – "Reject letters"

I remember when I signed myself up for one of those two year trade tech college courses. The electricity courses as my major didn't fall through and I selected commercial art instead. I think the thing that stuck in my mind was the way my design teacher explained projects from a freelance perspective. I say freelance only because each assignment was printed in a fictitious business letterhead as if it was produced by the freelance artist himself. I remember thinking, wouldn't that be easy if a commercial artist could create his own assignments by simply printing them up on a letterhead that he himself designed.

I kept all my homework for the longest time, but one day, while I was trying to make space to store more junk in my house, I began reviewing my old schoolwork. All this time I had placed on the back burner plans to emulate a real freelance artist by keeping a phony filing system filled with business correspondence from design firms. Why? Jeez, who knows? That's how my creative brain works I guess. I'm sure you can understand why such a project would be all but forgotten about.

It's been years and decades since my school days and this little comp seemed ideal in my quest to approach the editing stages for a writing project. I needed to get my thoughts straight, but it seemed no matter how I went about it, they'd always get scrambled or amiss in a haywire frenzy. I needed to create a timeline, or an outline at the very least, to refer to when I began to stray from the immediate objective: produce a finished first draft of a screenplay. I figured, if my instructions were on letterhead as if from a correspondence file, they wouldn't get lost. This is the first one so far. We'll see how it goes.

The meme was inspired by an article I read by Iklim Arsiya*

Can you tell us about the arrival of typewriters in Turkey? When did it begin to be widely used and how did it lose its practicality?

Nope. I know somebody with Armenian roots who owns a Hermes 3000 and all but handed it to me free. I declined because I wouldn't have felt right.

In the past, it was a merit to use a typewriter but now it has lost this feature. What are the typewriters that come to your shop to be repaired used for? Are they still used as a way of typing texts, or do they serve more as decoration?

Nonsense. The only reason I don't own more than one is because I couldn't think of a bigger sin for a typewriter lover to commit than to have a typewriter sitting alone in a corner without getting much use.

How do you maintain and repair a typewriter? Do you have trouble finding spare parts for this instrument that has now lost its practicality?

Fortunately, I am easy to please, and the way my typewriter produces my written words is more than sufficient. I take my typewriter to the professional machinists and the day I exhaust my list of typewriter repair shops who might just remark that the part I need can't be found, that is the day I will buy a second typewriter.

You said: "The typewriter is a device that creates a bond between itself and its user." What is the bond between you and your typewriter? What does it mean to you, and what kind of emotions does it arouse?

I'm not sure I remember saying that, but I will gladly have used it if I had thought of it. The bond I have with my typewriter is indeed personal in that we go way back. I held a grudge when I entered the administration world and had to slightly adjust my typing speed to retrain myself on the computer qwerty board. I don't care what anybody says, I believe my generation of the administration colleagues were shortchanged in that aspect of intricacy.

With technology developing rapidly, it's hard to continue with the obsolete. In this context, do you have a typewriter you still use and cannot give up on?

Yes. I once broke down my computer and the only means of emailing work related messages was by cell phone. I was able to produce my correspondence on hard copy, photograph it with the cell phone camera, and attach it to my email with an explanation of why I was going thru the trouble. As I sit here now, I question myself why I am answering these lame questions here on the laptop.

snippet from http://www.abc10.com/news/politics/who-and-what-are-californias-superdelegates/13293194

"I'm a superdelegate," Brown went on. "I'm exercising the full range of my responsibilities and prerogatives. So we'll see what happens, I'm not in any hurry. Once you make decisions, you know, you give up the ability to make decisions. I didn't propose to my wife for 15 years and that turned out perfectly. So, maybe I'll take a little more time deciding who I should be for."

I guess you could say I'm spending a fair amount of time trying to figure out what a superdelegate is and who they are in California.

The editing process

Day after the end of the world

How many times can I do a do over? My laptop doesn't have a cd rom drive and I'm puzzled over figuring out how to download some application software by connecting the laptop to the desktop. But when I try to google it, none of the search results point me to what I'm trying to do, install an a writing program. I also want to spend time creating links to interesting sites on the Internet pointing to noteworthy mentions from this conspiracy video about 9/11 that I transcribed. I don't know how long I'll be able to stand working on my old clunkewr desktop computer before I make the decision to upgrade. Right now I'm just glad I haven't made an attempt to connect the clunker to the Internet. It wouldn't work properly anyways. It would drag and constantly be "buffering" for any little thing I did, such as visiting a simple website. An online connection would only lead to disappointment as the ol' iMac desktop computer would constantly crash in the middle of buffering, causing doubt whether it truly crashed and needs a reboot, or if it needs a little more time to display the page. Ugh.

I went to record day at Amoeba Records in Hollywood. It was around 8pm. There were lots of people there. I must've met at least 5. Very friendly. I finally got around to picking up a BLS album. It was either that or LAMB OF GOD's latest LP VII: Sturm und drang. I'm glad I got what I bought. I even recognize some of the songs from radio play, though it's hard finding a radio station these days, here in Los Angeles, that will play this stuff.

I don't know if this is gonna come out right. I t4end to stick my foot in my mouth a lot.

I remember when I use to use this thing to rant. I guess I've been keeping myself busy with other stuff so that I don't have to rant so much. Lessee <--? I took a golf lesson the other day. Then, like clock work, my friend with no teeth said "Let's go play minigolf." And we did and it struck me that the golf course we used was embedded in my memory from when… I should shut up.

Maybe it could be that I've been trying to devote my time of expression more and more from analog devices. I don't know why I say that because I have this old vintage brownie camera that I love taking photos with and yet I still try to be creative taking pictures with the cell phone. It feels like I'm screaming to myself, yelling at me, name calling. Hypocrite!

Work is nice. Bunch of great folks with tons of tales.

In truth, I tire myself out using the typewriter. I'm contemplating making an attempt to re-focus the whole highschool project (completing a first draft of a screenplay). I think it's going to be uncomfortable making the transition from typewriter to computer, even though I have a sophisticated app for story structure. The only good thing about doing this is probably that I'll be using the typewriter for other stuff. Letter writing. -- That reminds me of the Hunter S Thompson book about his correspondence. -- What a CHARACTER.

I'm almost sad. I loved the idea of writing out all my ideas, as they come to thought, in screenplay format. But, things are getting serious with all the rhetoric I hear on the radion about the elections. It's so dumb. Just wait and see that whomever get's elected, these dumb asshole delegates are gonna elect him for a second term. Or her.

Ok. I'm done. See? Was anybody hurt? Anybody?
