My current playlist (2)

I change my playlist from time to time. I still love the other songs tough, but sometimes you press that repeat button at the same songs. Songs that make you happy at the moment or give you a good feeling. Not all songs are new, some of them are centuries old (OK, maybe not centruries). So, here is my current playlist:

Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling
Bruce Springsteen - Working on a Dream
Lifehouse - Halfway Gone
Foo Fighters - Wheels
Greenday - 21st Century Breakdown
Pearl Jam - Just Breathe
Lionel Richie ft. Trijntje Oosterhuis - Face in the Crowd
James Taylor - Carolina In My Mind(I heard in in the movie "Funny People")
Kings of Leon - Sex On Fire
Queensryche - Silent Lucidity
Snow Patrol - Just Say Yes
Sting - Fields of Gold
The Killers - Dustland Fairytale
Pearl Jam - Man of the Hour

All Shook Up - Love Me Tender

Yesterday I had a great evening. My mom and I went to see the musical "All Shook Up - Love Me Tender". It's a story about falling in love and it has 25 hits of Elvis in it. The songs were in Dutch off course, but that didn't bother me at all. Rene van Kooten was the leading man. He's my favorite musical actor. I've also seen him in "Beauty and the Beast" and "Les Miserables". For that last one he won a very important musical award. He's a great singer and actor. The leading lady was Brigitte Heitzer. She once attented a talent show, where she won the role of Evita. I never saw Brigitte in a musical, but I liked her performances I saw on T.V. I voted for her when she was in the race of becoming Evita. After last night, I'm even a bigger fan. She gave me goosebumps (that's a good thing)! She stole the show with her humor, spontaneity and her incredible voice.
My favorite song of Elvis always was "Falling in Love". It was also the toppoint in this musical, before the break. It gave me chills over my whole body! It was a wonderfull, funny, swinging and happy musical. I want to see it again!!!!

...And the other two

I told you that I still had to make two layouts for my scrapbook. So here they are. The first one is my night out with my collegues:

The second one is from Kreadoe, a arts & crafts fair I went to with my mom. I actually bought the paper, that I used for my last four scraps, at that fair.

I also made some christmas cards. Four to be exact.

So as you can see I was very creative this weekend. I hope that I gave my fellow scrappers some inspiration!

Ladies Night

Last friday me and some collegues from work went out for a nice evening. Only Jacqueline, the one that arranged everything, got sick and couldn't come (sadly enough). We went to a theater-diner in Breda (The Netherlands) and we had a hotel for the night. The show itself wasn't that great, because we had sucky seats and it wasn't as spectacular as we expected. But we had such a great time. We laughed so hard and we got to know each other better (sometimes a little bit too much). We even played truth or dare (we are in the ages 24 to 33...). After the show, we went to a bar, with a live band. Around two we went back to the hotel, where we talked for a while. We went to sleep around 4 o'clock. It was a great day. Here are some pictures:

Oscar Update

My little rabbit Oscar isn't that little anymore. He's still super cute, but he has grown. And he's not black, he's dark grey! Look at some pictures:

He's a very distinctive rabbit. He's curious, eats A LOT, not scared at all and his toilet he uses as his bed. At night he's most active, because he's starts running around in his cage. Oscar is super cool!!!

Winchester Wallpaper

I made a new wallpaper. I had the John Krasinski wallie up for a very long time (since september), so I was ready for something new. It's Winchester time again, Sam and Dean time!
Here it is:

CSI's best, per season

I once posted my favourite CSI episodes (long time ago). Now I'm going to do it again, but I can only pick one (maybe two) episodes each season. Here I go:

Season 1 - Boom
The episode where Nick has a one-night-stand and the girl gets killed. Catherine has to prove Nick's innocence. First Nick centric episode and a great one. The other storyline in this episode is the one with the explosion in the office building.

Season 2 - Stalker
Again this episode is centered around Nick. The team finds out that someone is stalking him. Especially the scene where the stalker is holding Nick at gunpoint is very strong.

Season 3 - The Accused is Entitled
My overall favourite. Chad Michael Murray guest stars as an actor held for a double murder. Big shot lawyers are trying to convince the team that he's not guilty and they are throwing with dirt. They bring up personal stuff to break the team down and make sure their client goes out free. Wonderfull episode.

Season 4 - Suckers
That episode where Warrick and Catherine have to mingle in the world of vampires. Creepy and disturbing in one way, but it's a very exciting storyline. The other case is with the Samurai sword that goes missing.

Season 5 - Grave Danger + 4 X 4
I had to choose two. Grave Danger is the obvious choice. I think it's the most popular episode for CSI fans. And it is a great epi. The team works together in a race against time to find Nick. And Quentin Tarentino directed it, which made it even better. The other episode really stood out that season. Four different cases and each story took place at the same time. So they literaly had two rewind the episode sometimes. Great way to film an episode.

Season 6 - Gum Drops
Nick has to lead a case where a family is killed. They just have to find the young girl Cassie. I like Nick as a leader and the end scene is very memorable.

Season 7 - Toe Tags
Four different cases and the episode is seen from the victims point of view. Which is a whole new twist. I especially liked the storyline with the war veteran.

Season 8 - Lying Down with Dogs
One of the most horrifying cases. Not the woman getting killed, but what that woman did. She 'created' fightdogs. That's awfull. The first time that I could actually understand the murderer and why he killed. And also the first time that I didn't feel sorry for the victim.

Season 9 - Turn, Turn, Turn
Wonderfull episode, with Nick as a leading character. We see three different cases in a motel, that happened all in one year. Haley (guest star Taylor Swift) is the constant factor in all stories. She even ends up dead herself. It's a sad story, but a very strong one. Wonderfull epi.

For season 10... we'll have to wait a little.

Scarriest movies

Since it was Halloween last saturday I decided to make a list of movies that scare me, over and over again. I made a short list, because there are a lot of movies that have scary parts. But the once I'm going to show you are overall scary. Here they are:
- The Shining - Stephen King knows how to wright an exciting story. And Stanley Kubrick knows how to turn it in to an even scarrier film. The hotel is creepy, with the haunting and stuff. It drives Jack mad and from that moment things are getting more scary.
- The Exorcist - The scarriest movie I've ever seen. Especially the scene where Reagan comes down the stairs backwards, on her hands and feet. I had a lot of sleepless nights because of this film.
- Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The movie doesn't really scare me, but it's horrifying and sickening what happens here. Only a sick, twisted mind is capable of doing something like this.
- The Descent - Going into a cave is scary enough for me, especially when one of the girls get stuck in it. The fact that there are flesh eating creatures of the night in that cave makes it even worse. One of the best new horror movies.
- Jaws - You only see the shark after 45 minutes, but the movie is extremly scary. Even after watching it 10 times the same things scare me. So that means it's a good movie.
- The Ring - The dark tone of the film makes it exciting. That video is very scary and the girl is even scarrier.
- Halloween - John Carpenter builds up the tension, which is this movies biggest strength. Michael Myers is one of the coldest killers ever. No emotions, extremely calm and he has no mercy. Just pure evil.
- Alien - De scarriest Sci-Fi movie. Especially the scene with the man, who's stomache explodes because he was impregnated with an alien. Disgusting, but a good way to get nightmares.
- The Grudge - Just like "The Ring" it's the dark tone that makes this movie scary. The film know how to scare people and the sounds are terrifying. They will haunt you days after you watched the movie.

Book Fair

I went to a book fair with my mother the other day. A school library wanted to raise money for a school in Indonesia, so they sold their books. And it where a lot of books. I didn't know where to start. So I found myself four wonderfull books:
- Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie;
- Gorilla's in the Mist by Dian Fossey;
- Sherlock Holmes: the Ultimate Collection by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle;
- The Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie
I only had to pay 3 euros! That's practically nothing! I gave 5, because it is for a good cause!
I'm a big fan of detective books. They're thrilling, exciting and mysterious! I was so glad that I found "Murder on the Orient Express". That's my favourite Christie story. So I will make it trough winter with those novels, haha!
