An open thread topic for the day... What's your main ringtone? If you're like me and have different ringtones for different people, what's your standard old ringtone? (You can tell us what the others are too, if you'd like!)

Ringtones say a lot about a person these days. Cell phones are ubiquitous and almost all of them are personalized. I'll let you determine what it says about me that my main ringtone was the Pink Panther theme for years until I changed it a couple of days ago to the theme from Superbad.

I included a way to download them both after the jump.

I decided a few months ago to declare independence from my cellphone. I was almost run over by some fool in a crewcab pickup towing a landscaping trailer, who was driving that massive rig in traffic while talking on his cell. I hate people who talk on phone while driving nearly as much as I hate 'phobes. My job doesn't require being on call (I'm not actually permitted to have one in the office, although that rule is openly broken by others), and I've never mastered the art of driving a stick shift car while talking on a cell, anyway. I can see having a pay-as-u-go cell for roadside emergency use.

When I did have a cell, the ringtone was "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath.

For the last few weeks, my main ringtone has been "4 Minutes" from Madge/Justin, but I'm thinking of switching it to either "I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore" as sung by the cast of Horton Hears a Who or "I'm Alive" from the Broadway cast of Xanadu in honor of the upcoming Tony Awards.

For my close friends, the ringer is set to the theme from "Pinky and the Brain"

Kelly and I are both dorks, we have the original L Word theme as our ring-tones for each other.

My rington is the song 'Eple' by Royksopp.

Yes I have one Ride of the Valkyrie’s by Wagner though my cell has it listed as Soaring.

Speaking of Dorks, anyone know where I can download the 2nd movement to Beethoven's Sonata Pathetique? I want to put it on my Mom's cell phone to play when I call.

My ringtone is an old-fashioned telephone ring.

I'm not quite sure what that says about me, beyond the fact that I'm old.
