Upcoming posts that may or may not show up on CineRobot

One of my favorite apps I've ever gotten on my iPhone is one that replicates manual typewriters. Called, Type-Writer, it looks and sounds just like the manuals that I have collected over the years. I always hated the notes app that comes with the phone and never found something else I liked to keep track of all the little things I come across that I want to read, watch, eat, listen to when I don't have pen/jotter handy. Type-Writer is perfect! You can't even fix your mistakes, just like it should be. And it sounds wonderful with the metallic clang of keystroke every letter that hits the "page". Here is a list I've recently done regarding posts that may or may not see the light of day on CineRobot [one of which already has in the recent Mad Max double feature post].

Wish you had iPhone so I could send you video--I made a short .37 thing of SJ and I hiking up Runyon Canyon last weekend that you could see. Great views up there!

You can actually e-mail each page to yourself or save it in your photo file. I'm actually going to start a new series of posts that will be just short little reviews using the app that I'm dubbing "Typewriter reviews".

I love this typewriter format! Way cooler than a "twit" (aka tweet)

Anon--I'm so in love with this app and the old-school look of the typewriter, I will start having short, "typewriter" reviews pop up from time to time. It not only looks cool, but it's kind of fun to write such a short, condensed review of a film--the app only allows for one card of type at a time with limited keystrokes on each card. So, only so many words to describe and review the film.
