So my elderly smartphone died. Okay. Bought a new one, and it has one of them new and fancy USB-C sockets. Huh. Okay then. Well, I'd like to kind of be able to connect it with my computer too, so I go hunting for a USB-C to USB-A cable.

Shop 1 - We don't have it, but we can order it and it'll arrive in....say, two weeks?

Nope

Shop 2 - We don't have it, but I'm sure Shop 3 has it.

Now keep in mind that shop 3 is like the ultimate tech geek store - they sell Arduino boards, remote controlled gadgetry, all kinds of components for DIY electronic projects, lights, PCB's, power supplies, adapters, plugs, sockets....

Shop 3 - We can order it. It'll take 3 weeks to arrive

For crying out loud...





But the best part is.....my old phone wasn't , well, dead-dead. I thought I had turned it off, and then put it in some drawer because I'm not really a throw-away-instantly type. And then, in the morning, I encountered a zombie.

You see, I use Timely as an alarm app, partially because it looks nice and I'm a sucker for nice things. But it also lets you put whatever song you want as alarm. And it syncs your alarms across devices. Since the old device was still on, when I snoozed my new phone in the morning, I could hear the old phone still play the alarm from the bottom of my drawer.

The phone, back from the dead. A zombie. A zombie that's singing to me:

"..and that wolf put up a fight 
but now he's gone 
and no one can say, 
no one can say to where"

I really like your digital painting style.  There's just something soft about the way you handle textures that's very appealing.  Haven't seen it before, and wish I could describe it better.

I've heard it be described as oil-like before.

....I've never touched oils admittedly so I can't really vouch for the comparison's validity!

The only thing I know about oils as a medium is what I've gleaned from watching Bob Ross video, so no idea on that.  XD;;

Hmm. May very well have been the inspiration for that image, because I can't remember where the idea came from and have certainly seen that comic before.
