Changed my layout (twelve days of Christmas were done yesterday...), and with help from Promethia managed to fix my DW so it's more or less matching my LJ. Same banner, same colours, and a layout that isn't a million miles from Compact. (Compact is the best layout.) The DW side obviously still needs a lot of work, but it's more or less livable with now. :)

And so as to let this post have some content other than ~i made things pretty~ have a song:

Watched episode 2 tonight, and Darcy (who was given this LJ moniker partly because of how critical he is) admitted to rather liking it - except for the theme music.

I, on the other hand, heard the first notes [back when watching ep 1] and thought to myself 'Oh, I must find that! It's gorgeous!'

So for those of you who feel like I do - here it is:



(If you go to youtube you can read about the composer, Martin Phipps.)

Sort of... just because. (I should be hoovering.) Mostly for me, but I figured others might like it too? Random selection of stuff from youtube that I like, but never got round to buying.

I'll probably add more. Most of these I use for when I write, and I have listened to them on repeat over and over and over. Enjoy?
