I Should Win Bonus!!! Points!!! For Properly Identifying The Movie


The Daver, sits alone on the couch fiddling around with his work Blackberry ring tones, stops on Für Elise.

The Daver, “This is your ring tone, baby. When you call, this is what plays.”

Aunt Becky, mulling it over while listening to the pretty tune, several seconds pass.

“Really? Seriously?”

The Daver, “Yeah.”

Aunt Becky, “Hm. I would have thought the Darth Vader Death March song thingie would have been more appropriate.”

The Daver, “Heh. That one doesn’t come standard.”

    I’m watching Star Wars Ep 2 right now w/ the kidlets.

    I’m thinking if I change my ringtone to the Darth Vader Death March song thingie I would be seen as the best mama ever.

    I recently discovered that my husband’s little photo-logo on his blackberry that pops up when i call from home is a skull & crossbones.

    Dh has that ring tone for when his big boss calls him, as opposed to the Cantina Band for when the tech support manager calls him.

    How pathetic am I that I don’t know the Darth Vadar Death March song (please, don’t actually answer that)?

    Off to youtube to expand my horizons!

  5. On August 9th, 2009 at 4:30 pm Kate Says:

    Okay, back to say that I’m not AS pathetic as I thought ~ I did know the music once I heard it!

    And yeah, it would make a freaking awesome ringtone! Tell your tech-savvy hubby to get right on that!

    You should look up ‘Alpaca Star Wars’ on Youtube. Click the first video. Its like 30 seconds long. I didn’t make it, but for some odd reason I crack up every time I watch it.

  7. On August 9th, 2009 at 4:44 pm Inna Says:

    That should totally be the ring tone! I love it!

    Its too bad I haven’t figured out how to program my phone to have different ring tones for different people.

    You’d gain a bazillion coolgeek points for that ringtone. Way better than running your fridge on linux.

    My hubby has Buckcherry’s “Crazy Bitch” as my ringtone. Which is all sorts of hysterical cuz we both work in the same large office area, and I call him just to screw with him.

    My house reeks of Star Wars dorkness. My 9 year old daughter can rival any grown Star Wars Geek. My son could write books with his Star Wars trivia knowledge and my 4 year old daughter is the new “Star Wars Kid”. I call it birth control, he calls it well-roundednes.

    My husband’s ring tone in general is some Sum 41 song and the only part that I can really understand says, “what the hell.” Once, I grabbed it on the way out the door on the way to church. Mine is usually on vibrate anyway so I didn’t stop to turn it down. He called me while in church to make sure I had his phone and he hadn’t lost it. I couldn’t get to it fast enough before it got to the “what the hell” part.

  10. On August 9th, 2009 at 5:49 pm Shannon Says:

    Ok, so I looked up “alpace star wars”. My 4 year old was sitting here with me and dum-dum-de-dummed along with the music and my other two came running “STAR WAAARRRS!!”

    Save me.

  11. On August 9th, 2009 at 6:55 pm SciFi Dad Says:

    When I opted to have caller ID on my cell, my wife’s number made it play “Fell In Love With A Girl” by the White Stripes.

  12. On August 9th, 2009 at 6:41 pm Alex Says:

    The Daver won’t pay for your perfect ringtone? I though the rule was “two days wages for her ringtone.”

  13. On August 9th, 2009 at 6:41 pm Alex Says:

    That should be: “thought.” Dammit.

  14. On August 9th, 2009 at 8:14 pm eden Says:

    Oh my GOD. Last night, I was telling my sister that we should all put the Darth Vader Death March on our phones for when our mother calls. Realz.

    AND, I love gardening too.

    Aunt Becky … it’s like, we are living different yet similar versions of life.

  15. On August 9th, 2009 at 7:29 pm Eva Says:

    Hah, on our house phone, I have Fur Elise for normal calls, and some irritating beep for my husband. πŸ™‚

  16. On August 9th, 2009 at 8:47 pm lonek8 Says:

    man, now I have to go download that ringtone for my husband to have on his phone when I call. thanks for that

  17. On August 9th, 2009 at 7:51 pm Denise Says:

    I’d totally love that, but I’m a SW nerd. πŸ˜‰ Fur Elise is a beautiful piece though.

  18. On August 9th, 2009 at 8:11 pm mumma boo Says:

    You mean it’s been you calling my house all along?

  19. On August 9th, 2009 at 8:52 pm Lisa Says:

    Ok, I have no idea how to save phone numbers into my phone let alone have different ringtones. I don’t know what a linux is, and am baffled at what the twitter stuff is when you have this symbol # and words following it.

    I have skipped both nerd and dork, and went straight to pathetic.

  20. On August 9th, 2009 at 9:40 pm Pete in Az Says:

    My cell phone rings…

    That’s it.

    Eventually, I’ll join the 20th century.

  21. On August 9th, 2009 at 10:06 pm IrasciblePlatypus Says:

    I would love it if Mr. Platypus had something like the Darth Vader March as the ringtone for when I call him. I’m not really sure what his phone does when I call him, since he usually has it on vibrate and I’m usually not phoning him when I’m within earshot of his phone.

    However, my ringtone for when he calls my phone is what my best friend and I call the “Bow Chicka Wow Wow Ringtone”. It honestly sounds like music from one of those B-rated pornos (not that I actually know what those soundtracks are like. *ahem*)

  22. On August 9th, 2009 at 11:00 pm GingerB Says:

    My best friend told me my husband should have “March of the Valkyries” for me.

  23. On August 9th, 2009 at 11:54 pm Lippy Says:

    Oh my hell, it is all star wars, all the time around here. We watched episode 3 today. My 6 year old checked out the star wars score from the library so we could put in on his mp3. He spends the whole day marching around listening to the music and dancing. He is a super dork, and we encourage the whole thing. My SIL made a heck of a yoda cake yesterday (pics on my blog) for my nephew.

  24. On August 10th, 2009 at 1:28 am lauren Says:

    HAHAHA JuJu doesn’t have a special ringtone for me. It totally hurts my feelings because he had a special ringtone on my phone until I set it on VIIIIIBRAAAAAATE so that I have an excuse to not hear it ring πŸ™‚

  25. On August 10th, 2009 at 1:01 am Didactic Pirate Says:

    That ringtone would’ve made you the hottest chick around at Comic-Con… wistful geeks would’ve been following you home.

  26. On August 10th, 2009 at 2:46 am ainebegonia Says:

    I have a Kelly Clarkson ringtone for the current man in my life (not the idiot, I switch his from Creep by Radiohead to Gives You Hell by the All American Rejects depending on my mood)…but the only reason I have the ringtone at all is because he hates it. I enjoy torturing the men I love.

  27. On August 10th, 2009 at 4:48 am 'cuz I'm the mommy, that's why Says:

    Informthe Daver that he must go right away and purchase said ringtone. As soon as Hubs gets back from his trip I shall download Meredith Brooks’s “Bitch” onto his phone for my ringtone. Don’t know what to use for his yet…

  28. On August 10th, 2009 at 6:19 am Sarah Says:

    Dude – Darth Vader is my ringtone for my mom. I laugh every time she calls.

  29. On August 10th, 2009 at 6:57 am Madame Queen Says:

    Ha! That’s classic. I used to have Elvis’ “That’s All Right, Mama” for my mom. I thought that was clever of me, if I do say so myself.

  30. On August 10th, 2009 at 8:04 am Dot Says:

    I’m not into the ring tone thing, but I used to have certain phrases play when I got email from people. From someone who was pretty tiresome about her knowledge of French, it was “Sacre bleu!”

  31. On August 10th, 2009 at 7:29 am Anita Says:

    I have a military marching ringtune set with a goofy little soldier head that pops up on the screen when Sgt calls. God knows what he has set for me!

    Our OPs manager at work has the DV March ringtone set for our company’s Director.

  32. On August 10th, 2009 at 9:42 am The Mommy Says:

    Really? You can have different ringtones for different people? Mine just plays the Muppets theme for everyone (it reminds me of Disney World).

    And the Darth Vader Death march thingie is officially the Imperial March (as informed by my 6 yo).

  33. On August 10th, 2009 at 10:41 am Mrs Soup Says:

    Ahahaha, that’s great! My ringtone for when my MIL calls is that march.

    If he has a cord to his computer, you can get free ringtones downloaded and transfered to your phone. πŸ˜€

  34. On August 10th, 2009 at 11:43 am Kristin Says:

    I love it. I would totally use the Darth Vader death march for a ringtone.

  35. On August 10th, 2009 at 12:24 pm Nel Says:

    My husbands ringtone for me is the song from Jaws.

  36. On August 10th, 2009 at 12:50 pm heather Says:

    My husband has the death march and he used to use it at work when he was still a supervisor. He had his phone on his belt and would turn it on whenever he would go to check on his employees for something. I told him he wasn’t allowed to do that when he’s working from home. =)
    The best thing he ever did for me was to make an mp3 or the Nightmare Before Christmas song and made that my ring tone. Now though, I can use any song on my phone as a ringtone, so I have different songs for different people.

  37. On August 10th, 2009 at 3:51 pm Nicole Says:

    I’m with Pete . . . my phone rings, and that’s it. Sometimes I even realize that it is MY cellphone that is ringing and I answer it.

    And I officially love you, because that is SO a conversation I would have with my husband.

  38. On August 10th, 2009 at 4:07 pm Aunt Decepticon Says:

    My phone doesn’t even ring. I have it perpetually on “silent.”

  39. On August 11th, 2009 at 10:07 am Kendra Says:

    We are cell phone-less. Well, technically I own a cell phone, but it only has one ring and I never answer it–which is just as well, because no one ever calls it.

    I was amazed when my son, about 3 at the time, pointed out the “good guy music” and the “bad guy music” when he watched Star Wars. In fact, it was those movies and that music that has led to one of his most endearing habits: when he plays, he “makes movies,” and they always have soundtracks. Most of them sound pretty much like a cross between Star Wars and Indiana Jones!

  40. On August 11th, 2009 at 10:46 am a Says:

    I love it!

  41. On August 11th, 2009 at 6:41 pm Kristine Says:

    Well it could be Carrie Underwood’s song about vandalized her cheating boyfriend’s car…I happen to know a couple for whom that’s the wife’s ringtone for the husband…

  42. On August 11th, 2009 at 10:06 pm Potty Mouth Mommy Says:

    ROFLMAO…. hahahahahaha- that song, is what got me married. I hummed it while I was playing with hubby’s “light saber” one time. He was hooked.

    Geeks are so easy!! πŸ˜›
