Alrighty! It's been a while since I've been in blog land, but hopefully that video blog made up for a bit. Well today's topic is: RINGTONES!! In case you weren't aware, I recently got my new Austin cell phone #!! So excited!! If you don't have my new number and would like it, just send me a message either via facebook, myspace, comment on this post, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org :D
So one of my favorite things about having a cell phone is customizing tones played for each person in my contacts list. Though I'm not gonna lie, sometimes it's hard to categorize the groups to which the tone belongs. For instance, last year, the First Year students at MCA would all have the "KIDS IN AMERICA" tone by The Muffs, and the MCA Staff would have "NEW AMERICANS" by Geoff Moore and the Distance as theirs. For right now, I have people in the following categories:
VIPs (which I used last year for the pastors and their wives who would call me)
Kel (ley Rowe)
and then just a general tone for whoever is not sorted into any of these categories.
So I thought I would share with you what those tones are and why they are, and then let you make some cool choices via commenting. :D
The first one is:
This one I chose because sometimes I get sad and miss all my friends back home, but when they call and i hear this, it makes me laugh and smile!
like this ----> :D ...only....not sideways.
Then we have the VIP's ringtone.
Like I said, this tone is for pastors and other influential leaders in my life, because they are...my heroes.
Next up is the Family ringtone!
I chose this one as a joke just cause it's a cute song and I didn't want to have "We are Family" blasting from my phone. :D
And the Flying Marshmallow tone is:
This is just such a great tone and is like, my prayer for The Flying Marshmallows!
Then there's the ringtone for Kelley Rowe!!
This one is funny...I came across it one day and I told Kel that I was gonna put it as her song. She doesn't like the song, and she doesn't live in LA, but it's still funny!!
And the ringtone for Sarah Noble, who is my absolute BEST FRIEND!
Okay, so we took a road trip once to Louisiana for our friend Kayla Norman's wedding, and we had to drive home that evening..all the way back to Austin. So we were desperately trying to stay awake and we were so delirious! So we started scanning the radio stations for upbeat music and it landed on Live Like You Were Dying by Tim McGraw...and we died laughing and were singing it at the top of our lungs. And then, to make things even funnier, we did a spur of the moment human video to the song using hand motions!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
And then we move on to the one for Pastor Dan!
This one, I think...is fairly self explanatory if you've ever been in MCA under P.Dan's leadership. It's the ultimate MAKE IT HAPPEN, Go-Mode song! hahahahahahaha! Alumni-- sorry for making your eyes twitch and your body convulse! hahahahahaha!
And if you aren't in any of those lists (don't take it personal) then this is the tone that plays when you call:
The song is BETTER IN THE END by Frontline, which a worship team birthed out of Master's Commission in Phoenix, AZ...and their music is SOOOOO powerful! I listen to their songs almost every day and have 4 of them added to the playlist on my cell phone. So when I'm walking, I'm listening to them. :D This song is just...the story of my life. Some of the lyrics are:
IF THERE'S ANYTHING LEFT I HAVEN'T GIVEN
IF THERE'S ANYTHING LEFT DISGUISED AND HIDDEN
I CAN FEEL YOU HOLDING ME FAR AWAY FROM WHAT USED TO BE
TIRED OF FEELING THE SAME OLD FEELING
WANNA MOVE ON TO WHAT I'M DREAMING
...I DON'T WANT TO FEAR WHAT YOU MAY CHANGE
MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME IN ME
CAUSE YOU SEE THE PICTURE OF MY LIFE
IT'S SO MUCH BETTER IN THE END
It's just...so exactly what my prayer is...to keep trusting God... because He knows the big picture and i don't.
NOW HERE'S YOUR PART!!!
You tell me: If I had a song to go with your name when you call me on my phone, what song would you want it to be??
Please leave me a comment and tell me! And if you're already listed, you can definitely make suggestions for a different song. :D COMMENT AWAY!
