Free tickets to “California Typewriter": #itypebecause

California Typewriter is opening on August 18 at the Metrograph in New York City (7 Ludlow St.), and on August 25 at the Arena Cinema in Los Angeles (6464 Sunset Blvd.).

I can't attend myself, but the promoters of the film tell me that they can offer a pair of tickets to one of my followers, either for the NY opening or for the LA opening. So I have come up with a contest:
Why do you type? (On a typewriter, that is?) Your one-sentence, typewritten answer to this question, starting with "I type because," could win you a pair of tickets to the film. Photograph or scan your sentence and e-mail it to me at, or post it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #itypebecause. (I will also Google the hashtag—which is currently unknown—so I can probably find other postings elsewhere.) Do this by the end of the day on Saturday, August 12. Then watch your e-mail or comments to find out whether you're the winner! I'm sure there will be more than one good answer, and I will post them all on this blog.


  1. hopefully you have a bunch of readers in NY and LA (:

    1. Already got some! Others are welcome to post their ideas, too. Just add a note that it's not for the contest.

  2. I'm not in NY or LA. None of the KZ area theaters are showing it.
