Lieze and I were watching Public Enemies late last night, and encountered what has to be the most surreal movie-watching experience EVER! Just as the above scene began, Lieze asked me “what time is it”. I looked at my watch and said “4am”. NO JOKE, as soon as I finished saying “4am”, the girl in the movie says “what time is it”, and Dillinger (Depp) says “4am, Sunday morning”. We stopped the movie yelling “HOW DID THAT JUST HAPPEN?!?!?!” Totally dumbfounded… we laughed hysterically about how impossible that was, and how something like that will never happen again.
Why I did not heed advice from so many good friends sooner, I have no clue. My trusty Apple Mighty Mouse has now taken a permanent position on the shelf, as this Wacom Intuos4 tablet has relieved it from further duty. I had heard from several people that there is a learning curve of two weeks in transitioning to a tablet. I didn’t experience that at all. I instantly felt at home… aside from occasionally going to grab where my mouse has been sitting for close to 20 years – but even that habit broke fast.Using the pressure-sensitive brush in Photoshop physically gave me goosebumps. I don’t think that has ever happened to my from using a computer before. It is like I have access to a sketchbook with infinite layers, and the incredible ability to undo. I am indelibly hooked!
