2. The most Neocon of all the Neocon Familiy that run this place: his ringtone?
"Frankenstein" by the Edgar Winter Group.

There is a weird story somewhere in this guy's life. A friend here says she was told never to be alone in the same room with him, that he is a MAJOR PEV. Weighs in at 300 plus, and has a humidor of REAL CUBAN CIGARS in his office, but wouldn't reimburse me for a water filter for the coffee pot: "I don't drink the stuff."

21. now that I would love to hear!
I haven't figured out how to download wonderful old or obscure music on my phone.


I'd have Robyn HItchcock tunes, if I were less of a Luddite.

6. I finally got annoyed with even my own ringtones.
Now, my cell phone just rings. I am the very essence of boring.

Very annoying, yes, but I don't have my phone on in public all that often.

12. Yeah, some are too loud
Cell Phone May Have Killed Korean Man
By KWANG-TAE KIM, Associated Press Writer

Wednesday, November 28, 2007
(11-28) 07:20 PST SEOUL, South Korea (AP) --

An exploding cell phone is suspected by police in the death of a South Korean worker Wednesday, though the phone's manufacturer said it was highly unlikely.

(sorry for the gallows humor)

14. I hardly notice unless they're good.
Mostly it's just more noise.

I have different tones for different people, so that I know which calls I can not bother to even think about answering. :7

20. Mine is "H-O-V-A" by Jay-Z, from the Unplugged album with the Roots band.
It's great! :D

My husband, my best friend, and my mom also have their own ringtones.

23. I have to admit
that I don't get the whole ringtone thing. I have my phone on one of the programmed rings. It sounds like a ring. All I need to know is that someone is calling me. I don't feel the need to broadcast my music preference to other people, who couln't give a shit anyway.

I used to work in an office where all these women had (I guess what they thought were cool) ringtones that were constantly going off and annoying everyone.

I sure don't miss that.
