I Finally Get a Smartphone
Hello? *cough* Is uh, is this thing on? Yes? Good? Alrighty…
As you can probably tell from the all the color n’ stuffs, this is NOT a DEAD DAYS. But hell, it’s an update!
You may not know this about me, but I’m slow at adopting new technology. When DVD players came out in the late 90′s, I scoffed at them and clung to my VCR claiming that VHS was the TRUE way to watch movies at home (rewinding builds character). Up until recently, I had the same computer for 10 years (Ol’ Chuggy). I switched to next gen consoles long after everyone around me did (Wii isn’t next gen) and I still refuse to Facebook (I prefer to Tweet).
So it makes sense that up until a week ago, all my cellphone was capable of doing was calling someone and texting (if I was lucky). So in a rather brazen move, my wife (who’s also technologically reluctant) and I decided to leapfrog about a decade’s worth of technology and innovation and pick us up onna these newfangled smartphones everyone’s all in looove with.
I can see why they’re in love with ‘em, I mean, who wouldn’t wanna have a stock ticker at the ready at all times. Hmm. And the New York Times at your finger tips? Yeah. And a calendar that you can sync to the calendar on your computer that you never use through something scary called THE CLOOUUUDDDD. Hey, I watched “The Fog” and that crap scared the shit out of me.
It was at this point where I realized that my damn phone was much more worldly and concerned with so much more than I was. It knew all these different languages, was good at math and knew what the weather was like at all times, everywhere. After it started correcting every other word I typed, I realized that my smartphone was WAAAY smarter than me. And I cried.
Nah, I didn’t cry, I wrote this stupid comic of myself and my buddy Adrian. It felt great to get back to drawing something DEAD DAYS-esque! I had so much fun in fact that you can expect some new REAL DEAD DAYS in the near future! In the mean time, see? I’m still alive! Thanks for reading! Later!
