I used to use it for all my angry letters...and awful poetry...

 A "trivia and reference" note on the episode entry for Let It Bleed on the SuperWiki:

H.P. Lovecraft is seen typing his manuscript on a typewriter. these were mechanical devises in use up until the late 20th century, which were used to print text onto paper before computers

My god, I'm old.

Guys...I still own a typewriter....and I'd use it too, if ribbons were easier to come by. (Ribbons are what hold the ink in a typewriter...like a very fine stamp pad. Stamps are still used by bank tellers...bank tellers are people you used to go to in order to deposit or withdraw money from your bank account....I could do this all day...)
