i’m glad alex balk doesn’t have a smart phone still. sometimes i feel like the last person on earth who doesn’t have one. even dena johnson finally got a smartphone. the more other people pressure me to get a phone with semi-high-speed internet connectivity and gps and apps and all this dumb crap, the more i want to resist and keep my circa 2008 slider device with a keyboard. people will argue with me about this forever but it’s like they’re trying to get me to join a cult.
