A modern day dilemma. My mobile phone company is currently offering both Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie and Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice as ring tone possibilities.

The separate ring tones, when broken down to their base elements (sans vocals,) are almost virtually identical to one another. Unfortunately, each speaks volumes to passerby about your level of ironic detachment (or lack thereof) from our pop-culture past.

I’ll probably just go with the CHiPs theme instead.


Many people have tried to accurately capture the essence that is Brian, but this much is known to be true: he has dutifully paid the hosting bill for Ranzino.com since 2001.
