The great migration

2014-8-14So I switched from my iphone to a galaxy note III!  why?  

Well, for one, my contract was up for renewal (i actually had my iPhone 4 through to the end of my 3 year contract), so with incentive stuff, i got my note for $25.  …which meant i could spend money on an otterbox case, which makes a comically big phone catastrophically large.  i think it’s awesome.

Some pros:  within the first five minutes, i had a playstation emulator running my favourite PSone games from back in the day.  All of the google apps are super intuitive, suprisingly so.  I love the camera, it’s good.  Also, it’s nice to have some change.

Some cons:  Samsung has it’s own app for everything, on top of all the android apps that are included, which is ridiculous.  I’ll have to find someone who knows which one i should actually use and get rid of the rest.

  My text messages don’t work super great, I kept the same phone number which means all my friends with iPhones can’t text me right now, until i get that sorted out (thanks steph for the sign-out tip- i’ll give that a go).

  In any case, my phone now has better stats then any computer in my house, so that’s kinda fun.

Also- once i get the hang of drawing with the S-pen, i plan on doing the odd comic on there.  Should be GOOD!  YAY!

Have a great… I wanna say thursday? what day is it?  I love vacation.

 

“social” outings

2013-10-2

so, monday night at the commodore.  My brother’s opening for a band.  Before he starts, i take a quick look around the room.  What I have illustrated here is NOT an exaggeration!  there was a literal line of about ten people RIGHT in front of me who were ALL identically posed, looking at their cell phones.   SURELY, once the music starts, people will put their phones away… right?  no.  obviously not.  As a youth pastor, I guess i figure that is just how youth act in public, but man alive, adults are WAY worse then students.  Remember when going to see someone play music was about going to see someone play music?  When did a concert become about us as individuals?  Anyways.  whatever.   Andy played well, and the commodore’s sound people are useless as always, and everyone got a bunch of killer tweets and status updates and texts out of it.
