001: In that vein, I'm also glad to grab up all the Phil Hendrie shows I can get as well, because Phil is a radio genius. He's a professional troll, his entire show's a joke, and he does his best to incite unsuspecting listeners to call in and argue with his phoned-in guests. Now it's amusing and all, but this wouldn't be half as compelling if it weren't for the fact that Phil does all the voices. He's got his finger on the phone filter button and he can seamlessly and skillfully switch between his radio host voice and his guest caller voice, alternately arguing with and defending the real person who calls in to complain. It's incredible when it happens. Unfortunately there's a lot of downtime if Phil can't get a live one, so he'll just rant on and on, going more and more for the outrageous in the hopes of hooking someone. You know. Typical troll behavior. And, like a good troll, when Hendrie is on, he's on, but when he's not getting anything in return, he's nuts.

I have three saved messages and I've listened to them all. No new messages. The envelope should disappear into the liquid crystal aether but it does not. It stays lit. I don't have text messages or nothing either. I'm most concerned because usually when the little envelope icon is up, the phone won't blink its little HEY STUPID light when I do get new voicemail. This means I either check every time I'm away from the phone for a suitable length of t-- no. I will not be a slave to the little silver communicator. I won't! I shan't! Shan't shan't SHAN'T!
