11 1/2 Minutes of Fame

This past week, I was featured in the local PBS series “Off 90“, which showcases various human-interest stories from along southern Minnesota’s I-90 corridor. The segment was filmed last summer but due to uninteresting reasons the airing was delayed until now. The episode has now been posted to YouTube, so anyone who is masochistic enough to do so may watch me awkwardly babble on about typewriters.

My segment begins at about the 10:35 mark, following the Frozen River Film Festival (which is worth a watch itself).


  1. Absolutely GREAT. You represent us well, and the segment isn’t sloppy or rushed, but does a nice job of mixing facts, interviews, illustrations, and beauty shots of interesting typewriters.
