Pick 20 songs you never get sick of. They don't have to be in any particular order.

Pretty simple, huh?

1. Kryptonite - Three Doors Down
2. How to Save a Life - The Fray
3. Stand - Rascal Flatts
4. Path - Apocalyptica (also Farewell & Nothing Else Matters)
5. Don't Stop Believin' - Glee cast
6. Skin - Alexz Johnson
7. Play Doh Dreaming - James Dooley (Pushing Daisies soundtrack)
8. Blood Theme - Daniel Licht (Dexter soundtrack)
9. Snow White Queen - Evanescence
10. Birdhouse In Your Soul - Ellen Greene & Kristin Chenoweth (from PD)
11. The Song Remembers When - Kristin Chenoweth
12. The Eternal Vow - Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon soundtrack)
13. RĂ­ Na Cruinne - Clannad
14. Inara's Suite - Greg Edmonson (Firefly soundtrack)
15. Evacuating London - Harry Gregson Williams (Narnia soundtrack)
16. New Slang - The Shins
17. Dark Chest of Wonders - Nightwish
18. Zydeko - Cirque du Soleil
19. Defying Gravity - Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked soundtrack)
20. Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright (or something by Live or U2)

PS. I also love Fascination by Alphabeat and Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham!, but I have been known to get sick of them after listening to them too much (especially Fascination :P). It was probably my own fault though - I was feeling down while trying to write my Honours thesis, and was listening to them to help pick me up. (They're so bouncy!) I have Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall in that same playlist - love that one as well!

PPS. For anything soundtrack or predominantly instrumental, there's a number of other songs I could have chosen from that soundtrack or by that same artist.

PPPS. As you can probably see, my taste in music is rather eclectic. :P (Note: I haven't chosen anything I've had for less than three months.)

I've made 36 icons and two banners from Kristin's appearance in Glee, as April Rhodes. I hope her character comes back!

Inspired by my current Glee obsession, I've made 40 icons from the 5th Glee episode, The Rhodes Not Taken. Most of them are of Kristin Chenoweth's character April Rhodes.

I thought I'd do a review-type-thing of one of my favourite TV shows, partly so I can show off my new wallpaper! =D Yes, another new wallpaper... *rolls eyes*

Pushing Daisies is a humorous crime investigation show with a romantic subplot. Except it has one major difference – the main character (Ned) can bring people back from the dead. He uses his ability to talk to murder victims – but he only has one minute, or someone else will die. It's a great concept! And it also means that one of the main characters is an "alive again" dog! (Ned hates to use the term "zombie" – 'It's disrespectful. Stumbling around squawking for brains? It's not how they do. And "undead"? Nobody wants to be "un"-anything. Why begin a statement with a negative? It's like saying "I don't disagree." Just say you agree.')

Pushing Daisies has some great humour, especially from Emerson (a PI) and Olive (the waitress at Ned's shop, The Pie Hole). Ned's a pie-maker, when he's not helping Emerson solve crimes. And for interest's sake, Olive is being played by Kristin Chenoweth, who used to play the role of Glinda in Wicked. She's a brilliant singer! She sings in Pushing Daisies:

The visual style, wonderful music, and brilliant narration of Pushing Daisies have been compared to a number of my favourite tv shows and movies, especially Amélie, Big Fish, and Arrested Development. The romance element is a little overdone at times, but it's cute. =) Pushing Daisies is starting in Australia sometime this month, and the second season will be starting in the US in September. I can't wait! *dances*

Oh, and Ned's "alive again" dog, Digby, is one of my favourite characters. =D He's the star of my new wallpaper:
