Need a break from writing? Or some cinematic inspiration to begin writing? Or, just really like typewriters? Then perhaps I can interest you in two minutes, four seconds of typewriters on screen, set to Leroy Anderson’s irrepressibly jaunty “The Typewriter.”

The supercut, courtesy of Ariel Avissar, features shots from Zodiac, Stranger Than Fiction, Citizen Kane, and (of course) The Shining, among others.

May the labor of fictional characters guide your artistic endeavors! Or your dumb tweets! No judgment here.
