My cell phone is as basic as they come. I don’t have Internet or Blue Tooth or even a fancy case. It’s, well, utilitarian and practical. It also has the lamest ringtones on the planet. With few exceptions, they’re either boring or annoying. However, since I don’t have any sort of internet access to it, I didn’t think I could change them.
Until I found the Record option.
I decided to take some goof off time, in honor of Mother’s Day, you understand. I discovered, after a little experimentation, that if I hold the phone next to the computer speakers and turn up the music it records pretty well. I now have a little Pink Floyd, Mozart, and the Numa Numa song, as well as a custom played walking bass line. I’m nothing if not eclectic.
That’s just the beginning. I have songs in mind for several friends and family members. I plan to add to them in the near future, but for now I’m going to live with what I have. I want to make sure I can hear them, you understand, because even at max volume they’re not as loud as the generic ones. If I don’t miss too many calls, I’ll play more.
Yes, it’s pitiful that this is the extend of my geekdom. Just smile and nod.
