It seemed like a good idea.  
Ever have one of those moments where you're contemplating an action and then realize, "Hmm, this isn't wise no matter what I do,"? I just had one of those.

A while back, I made a ringtone out of the refrain from Jonathan Coulton's "Skullcrusher Mountain."* I very much enjoy this song and figured, "Hey, it would be a fun ringtone." I made it, forgot about it, and recently found it again.

When I went to set it up, I asked myself whose special tone the song should be.

For those unfamiliar with the song, here's the refrain:
"And I'm so into you,
but I'm way too smart for you.
Even my henchmen think I'm crazy;
I'm not surprised that you agree.
If you could find some way to be
a little bit less afraid of me,
you'd see the voices that control me
from inside my head say I shouldn't kill you yet."

I like the idea of being a mad megalomaniac, okay? Sue me.**

As I said, I was contemplating who in my phone book would be the lucky recipient of this fine ringtone. That is when it occurred to me: "Do I really want to say that I'm too smart for one of the people I love? Or that I've contemplated killing them, or that I one day shall?"

Villainous love is a tricky business.

* - He has a link up for a shorter version of the same ringtone, so there you go. Nice guy, what?

** - Please don't sue me.

Just pick somebody you've GM'd, and use that as your cover story.
