Wicked is based on the Gregory Maguire novel titled "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West." Music and lyrics was from Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman.
According to Wikipedia, "The musical is told from the perspective of the witches of the Land of Oz: Elphaba, the misunderstood girl with emerald-green skin, and Galinda, later Glinda, the beautiful, ambitious and popular blonde. Wicked tells the story in which these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North while struggling through opposing personalities and viewpoints, rivalry over the same love-interest, reactions to the Wizard's corrupt government, and, ultimately, Elphaba's public fall from grace. The plot begins before and continues after Dorothy's arrival from Kansas and includes references to locations, events, characters and situations from both the 1939 film and Baum's novel."

I just want to share this music video shared by my colleague. This song is from David Dimuzio, an American singer-songwriter that likes Filipino music a lot. This song is in English and Filipino. You should check out his YouTube page where he did some OPM renditions. I was impressed with his Tagalog!

Nike+ GPS currently tracks distance, pace, calories burned as well as the exact GPS location of your runs. You can play songs during your run and you can pre-set some power songs that the app can trigger to boost your run. The app has a voice over depending on your preferred distance. There's also a summary roundown after your run with additional cheer from some famous sports people.
What I like about this application is the interface. It's striking red and very easy to use. The app has a built-in integration with Facebook that allows you to hear claps every time your friend sends a comment or likes your Nike+ status.
