"I’m by the hotel working on a tan…. People come up and ask me who I am…. I say, ‘If ya’ don’t know, don’t ask.’ … Zeus laughs, but it’s the gas, and he asks me how I am…. I say, ‘Zeus, don’t ask.’" (Lyrics: Nick Cave, "Lightning Bolts") #ThrowBackFriday #ExistentialPhase #MyChildhoodFranzKafkaImpression (at The Office)

Today I’m selling my issue of “Rolling Stone” #1 from 1967 to help save up for a car. Would’ve loved to hold on to it and hang it up on my wall, but desperate times call for desperate measures. #BookCollecting #Bibliophiles #Magazines #RollingStone #Vintage #JohnLennon #JohnLennonCollectables

Finally figured out how keep the #Olivetti carriage-return working smoothly. Sometimes, you’ve got to pry it lightly up with the fingertips of both hands when it jams up. Also, I forgot to adjust the Line-Space & Carriage-Return Lever towards me, in its operating position, so that I could hit the lever whenever I’m at the end of a line. (This took me all day to figure out. Go ahead and laugh. Lol!) (at The Office)

I figured the cloth in the shoe-care/cosmetic travel kit would probably dull the shine on my shoes if I used that cloth to shine my shoes after wiping the interior working components of the #Olivetti with isopropyl alcohol, so I dabbed a little bit of the isopropyl alcohol on some toilet paper and gleaned over the mechanics with a tiny bit of the alcohol, per the manual’s suggestion. Then I wiped over the spots I softly gleamed over with a tad of alcohol with some dry sheets of toilet paper. According to a collector who says he regularly maintenance a these things, I’ve also got to use some methylated spirits to clean the machine eventually. The big troubleshooting tonight came from shaking out those tiny loose pieces of cardboard/packing that jammed up the space and back-space keys. I troubleshot that by initially taking off the top plate and then lightly and delicately feeling for any obstructions or jamming keys (since, suspiciously, the letter keys worked). I turned the typewriter upside-down to look for the screws to unscrew the plate on the bottom of the typewriter. Then I turned the typewriter right-side-up and realized that the space and back-space keys started working again momentarily. After doing that a couple of times and noticing that the keys would jam after four or five hits of the keys, I finally screwed off the bottom plate. Then I noticed the two very small cardboard obstructions that obstructed the path of one of the springs. The latter part about removing the cardboard obstructions was the most important part of maintaining the typewriter tonight. (at The Office)

The case didn’t come with the loose brush that was mentioned in the manual, so I made do by cleaning with a brush from a cosmetic travel kit. (at The Office)

Learned a couple of cardboard pieces (pictured in the video’s still preview) accidentally fell down the crack in my Olivetti and were jamming the Space-bar and Back-space keys. Also, I’ve got to wipe down a tad bit of dust and lint under the hood. Oh, and I just realized that I’ve got to set the Personal Touch Tuning on the typewriter to “4” because I like to type HARD!! #DIY #Maintenance #TypewriterProblems (at The Office)
