Help Make Me Cool

All rings tones are categorically obnoxious. It's sad and painful but it's true. I wish it weren't that way. Up until now I have never had a phone with the ability to play ring tones I have fashioned myself.

But that all changed this last Tuesday.

So now I've got all this pressure on me: Your ring tone, when fully controllable by you, is 20 seconds to say absolutely everything about who you are. If you have the right one, well, let's just say I know people who leave their phone at full volume during job interviews because their ring is That Good.

It turns out in a lot of ways I'm a real loser. As I previewed my potential songs for Jess she made faces she might only otherwise make if she were being fed to a meat grinder. She said I, "Picked a lot of songs that were cool 10 years ago and will just make people cringe."

It turns out I'm just...typical. And I hate the idea that I might be typical, that's the last thing I want to be, which is actually a strike against me because nobody wants to be typical, so the very act of not wanting that makes me, you got it—typical.

So I dug a little deeper into my musical subconscious. But clearly I need help. If you wouldn't mind checking out my ring tones and then voting for them on the sidebar pole over there, that would be great. Also, if you would like one of these ring tones to be the song that I hear when you call me then let me know and I'll make that happen.
