We love James Franco. We think he’s brilliant. He writes. He acts. He directs. And he smells great in Gucci.
The man is the ultimate multi-tasking overachiever, and the very personification of awesomeness. How does he do it? The secret is finally out.
MDJ: James Franco. What can I say? The dude is awesome. He’s today’s Renaissance Man, whose resumé is exploding with various gigs for acting, writing, teaching, painting, hosting, producing, humanitarian efforts, and directing.
Zee also thinks he’s a walking, talking occasion to sin. I’m just too star-struck to object.
Zee: James Franco. Hot.
MDJ: Even worse, he holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Columbia, is a PhD student at Yale, and is attending the Rhode Island School of Design.
Seriously, James Franco gives me self-esteem issues.
Zee: James Franco. Hotter.
MDJ: You’re really not helping! The man is the ultimate overachiever, and I’ve been dying to know how the hell he does all that. I have a hard enough time putting on my socks and talking at the same time!
Which is why it’s so annoyingly perfect that he’s the face of the new Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1, a device which calls itself “the ultimate tool for the ultimate multi-tasker.”
If it’s good enough for Franco, it’s good enough for me.
After all, both Zee & I are MASSIVE fans of the original GALAXY Note, which we both own. They’re amazing creative tools. We draw little masterpieces on them, which we hope to someday auction off on eBay as $500 limited edition prints.
Zee: I’m totally in love with the GALAXY Note and it doesn’t leave my side, whether at work or at home. It allows me to work on layouts for communication materials, write copy and blog (like this blog, as a matter of fact!), take notes for my numerous meetings, and draw for fun. It takes wonderful print-ready pictures and high-definition videos that I sometimes edit on it.
It really is the ultimate tool for a multi-tasker with the attention span of a gnat like me. James Franco and I really are compatible.
MDJ: Imagine what we could do on the GALAXY Note 10.1’s super huge 10.1″ screen, improved S Pen, 1.4GHz quad-core processor, and 50GB of free cloud storage from Dropbox. Palm recognition is much better too, so we can rest our palms on it while drawing without misregistering a screen tap!
Zee: The capabilities of my GALAXY Note in a larger format is a dream. Imagine the possibilities! World domination!
MDJ: Or at least a reasonable degree of popularity.
It’s got a winning software bundle preinstalled. The Note 10.1 comes pre-loaded with Photoshop Touch, and supports split-screen functionality between select apps.
Imagine drawing on the S Note app, while simultaneously watching Pineapple Express on the video player. Dreams do come true!
Zee: Imagine doing a layout while watching James Franco swimming butt-naked in Milk. Whoopee!!
MDJ: (Shakes head sadly)
Samsung is officially launching the GALAXY Note 10.1this Saturday, September 1, at the Rockwell Powerplant Mall with a nifty Launch Day offer.
Cash buyers get a P2,000 discount, while credit card buyers enjoy 0% interest for 12 months. It also comes with a MiPow 5500 Power Tube Portable Charger that literally doubles the battery life. The MiPow alone is worth P4,000, I think. James Franco would approve.
Zee: I want one. Advanced wedding gift to meeeee!
MDJ: I’ll never quite be James Franco, but I can at least be as big an multi-tasking overachiever as he is with my own GALAXY Note 10.1.
I still hate him for being so perfect though.
Zee: You’ll be more than perfect if you get me a GALAXY Note 10.1, you know.
Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 retails for P32,990, and comes in either Pearl White or Pearl Grey. Get it at authorized Samsung Mobile dealers nationwide starting September 1.
