Dear Tom Hanks: I Have Concentration Issues

Typewriter enthusiast and America's hero, Tom Hanks has a new app for the iPad called Hanx Writer. It's an e-writer that simulates the O.G. look and feel of a typewriter in the palm of your hands. Hanx Writer is a stripped-down, bare-bones app that's probably as close to the real thing as you can get using a tablet.

Writing on the app got me thinking: I should probably use it to pen a letter to Mr. Hanks every week asking him for personal advice. Keep in mind, I have no plans on sending him this letter directly, but I trust it will make its way to him via the powerful tubes of the Internet. 

Not only that, but I plan on writing him a letter, once a week—every week—until I get some sort of response. Remember: this is creepy. But also kinda endearing. I'll be waiting for you, Hanks. 

By the way, this app is baller. Download it and use it for other things than writing to celebrities in vain. 

Hey, we all have our hobbies.
