Interview with Christopher Lockett on Typewriter movie

Here's an interview with Christopher Lockett in The Los Angeles Downtown News.

His film "The Typewriter (In the 21st Century)" starts a one-week run at the Downtown Independent theater in LA tomorrow.

In the interview I'm referred to as the guy who "runs the Typosphere." We know, of course, that the typosphere is gloriously anarchic — I disclaim any such authority.

But I do like the saying on one of the shirts created by artist Louise Marler, referred to in the interview: "Talk QWERTY to Me!"

yeah, I got a chuckle out of that "runs the Typosphere" line when I read it yesterday, but hey, all hail the King! :D

Chief inmate of the asylum?

Christopher Lockett said...

Sorry about that - wasn't aware that it would be a Q&A format. Didn't realize that a quick clarifying aside would be quoted verbatim.

I appreciate the anarchy of the Typosphere!

But the way I figure it, anytime I can get the words "Richard Polt" or "Typosphere" in a new article, I'm doing my part.

Peace,
Christopher Lockett

I've learned anything you say to a reporter can be used against you. Including labels and titles. When I did an interview with the Documentary Channel about the Kickstarter campaign we did for the film, I was careful to talk vaguely about some things because journalists like to surprise with Q&A sessions. I mentioned typosphere as a group and didn't call anyone out. I called it a community.

I don't think anyone's offended by the character assassination. When the revolution comes, we figure Richard will be the first one we toss out to appease the ravening hoardes.

Wait, that was out loud? OH HI RICHARD.

Well that is good! We don't want anyone being offended.
