12:26 am - Create your own ringtones 'n' stuff
I know I've always said that my ideal cell phone ringtone would be Don't Fear the Reaper, but I've found something better: smashTheTONES.

smashTheTONES is a really cool site where you can upload your own images or ringtones to your phone. I was a little skeptical at first about entering my cell phone number at a website I'd never heard of, but a small amount of research shows that it's been featured in publications and on news programs, and is quite legitimate.

I've just been experimenting with my own polyphonic ringtones (ie, MIDI files), and I've made some MP3s of the ones I put together this evening. They're mostly taken from pieces of music I'd written some time ago, which I've had to edit down to no more than four MIDI voices plus percussion (is that standard? It's what my phone requires). The bass didn't come through very well in the recordings, but I'm terribly thrilled with the ringtones nonetheless. The files are small (all in the ballpark of 200K), so check 'em out:Yeah. I have no life. I like it that way.

In retrospect, I could so totally have composed Nintendo soundtracks, circa 1987.

Current Music: Sample 1 on repeat because I haven't turned it off yet

Were you doing this in 1987? 'Cause I didn't even get a Nintendo until about 1989.

I wasn't, but I could've. I never actually had a Nintendo, but the music was always my favorite part of the games. I'm not sure what was wrong with me either.

Hey, since we've got each other's attention, I think we should hang out sometime. Whenever.

Next Saturday works for me. Or whenever. Sounds like you're a lot busier these days than I am. We'll work something out.
