Two Fists: Mysterious & Ways.

I can be obsessive with my telephone. Well-- I can be obsessive about anything. See, I'm not really obsessive-compulsive, though. I want to get it right but then I can leave it alone. I don't need to keep picking at a scab. Until it is right, just gets under my skin. All of my cell phones have been this way; I'm miserable until I get the motif just right, & then I can relax. My first cell phone's wallpaper was Gustave Doré's Destruction of Leviathan, & the ring tone was Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz". My next phone had the same wallpaper-- how I lived without changing it is a mystery-- & the ringtone was "Night on Bald Mountain". After that, my next phone's background became Astaroth's seal, & the song for its ringtone was The Mountain Goats' "Lovecraft in Brooklyn". Later I got a new version of the same phone due to some technical troubles, & kept the same background but changed the ringtone to what I'd originally wanted, Godspeed You! Black Emperor's "East Hastings". I was pretty happy with that final combination. Now I've got this new phone, & I'm freaking out about it. Like, I was in a bad mood about it on Wednesday, & it made me late for my lunch plans with comeuppances today, even. Right now there are two options for the background-- Hugh Ferriss' "Philosophy from the Metropolis of Tomorrow" was my first pick (it is also the cover to my NaNoWriMo novel Watchtower Gothic), but currently the wallpaper is a page from The Voynich Manuscript. For music, the way I have it set up right now isn't the worst-- my ringtone is from Requiem by György Ligeti. The monolith song from 2001: A Space Odyssey, in other words. My alarm clock is Jenny Lewis & the Watson Twins singing "Born Secular", which, yeah. I could stand to wake up to that every day. My text message alert is Aang from Avatar: the Last Airbender saying "They do get their mail on time!" Anyhow, I finally got sick of messing with it & split a cheese plate at Eataly with Sarah. Then, spent my time sniffing whiskey cheese.
