What happens when you combine a computer and a typewriter?

If I was typing these words on a typewriter, I probably would’ve made at least six mistakes and wouldn’t have been able to backspace. What a pain! If you like typewriters but hate making errors on them, you can get a hold of a USB typewriter, a brainchild of Jack Zylkin. It’s plugged into your monitor via USB, replacing the standard keyboard and instantly making you better than everyone else. If you use it at an office space, your co-workers will call you “that one worker with the typewriter” and talk about you in the lunchroom. That is okay. You’re awesome and your choice of technology is awesome. I’ve seen a lot of strange home-made things come from Etsy users, but these typewriters are anything but. See how it works here! (via Wired)

No time for cameras, no time for crying

I didn’t really get into Matt & Kim until I decided to check out their set during Pitchfork Music Festival in 2009. But something about that show reminded me that sometimes music’s not just about the music, but the personalities behind it and how they make you feel. The couple’s enthusiasm is just so infectious that it’s hard to imagine anyone feeling miserable around them. I’m probably not the only one that got pumped for their new single Cameras after this interview, but it’s out today and it’s a sing-along so have a listen below.

A Deer Wearing Gym Socks

It’s hard to imagine one’s reaction to seeing a deer wearing gym socks. This whimsical bit of crazy comes from Charmaine Olivia and could easily be yours on a t-shirt, canvas, laptop sleeve or iPhone. However, I’m still trying to guess what you’re reaction would be to seeing a deer in gym socks. Do tell in the comments!
