New Design Preview
Update: Final Design Added

Pardon the lack of blogging, trying to get some of this redesign stuff done as well as take care of some personal business.

Okay, so Liberrocky mocked up a new banner some time ago. Really cool. I passed that on to Jen of Demure Thoughts for her to play with.

I asked her, "Look, if you start to play with this, you're not going to make it all girly are you? I don't want it to look like Bethany's MySpace page."

She was offended by the question.

After arguing about serif vs. sans serif for a while, we seemed to be on the same page.

This is her current mock-up, which I think isn't just white hot, but shite-hot, as the singer from The Darkness says about his brother's guitarwork.

I know the white background on the banner is different, and I resisted it at first, but now I'm thinking it's nice and stark and clean. The black on white is kind of skull-like, anyway. And it's less Instapundit-ish. Instapundit has a good design, and I guess I sort of aped the basic color scheme, but it's good to not be quite so derivative.

Thoughts?

Well! Slublog took Jen's design and just ran with it.

I'm proud for the first time in my adult life to post tits and silly shit on the Internet.


Oh, and here's the Darkness. I fucking loved this song when I first started this blog.

Still do.
