Songs for the Treadmill

I recently uncovered a little mystery that's plagued me all my life - how to run at the gym. Turns out it's all in the music. If the right music is playing, I not only can distract myself from the agonizing pain that wracks my entire body, but even experience something like that elusive "Runner's High".

Especially while indulging myself during the holidays, I've gotta drag myself to the gym and force myself to sweat for a while. I'm looking for more ideas - so: What are the Top Five Songs You Play to Get Your Heart Beating?

Halloween Costumes You Saw This Year

I enjoyed Halloween when I was a kid, but somehow not as much as I do now. Maybe because when I was a kid, I'd put together a great costume, then my parents made me put on a coat and maybe even a hat before I could walk around gettin' my candy! Darn parents! Lately Halloween is everyone's favorite holiday, isn't it? We were invited to like, 5 parties this weekend! Between the parties and the kids at the door, I saw a lot of cool costumes - what were the top five Halloween costumes you saw this year?
