Chip & Chris. Take a gander at the new directory at There’s a random design in there. It’s probably best to open it in some sort of HTML editor to get the full idea of the table layouts and such. Input would be good. I don’t know where to go with this one, or even if I like it yet. Lemme know. Bare in mind that the content would go down the strip in the middle and try to imagine the layout with buttons and such instead of merely text. I’m gonna go take a nap now.

Well, tonight Sandra Collins will be spinning at Liquified in Atlanta and I’m not going. Both Nagle and I aren’t feeling 100% so we decided it probably wouldn’t be the best idea to go. Its unfortunate since Collins is quite the DJ and I haven’t done much in the way of “excitement” this spring break. Not that I don’t appreciate sitting on my ass for a week, but after a while it starts to lean towards borring.

Today I’m working on a design for Blog Project. I’m keeping it simple while trying to make it “nifty”. It needs to be simple enough to design around and obviously easy to use, but I’m trying to stear away from the “table and left-hand column” routine. At the moment I’m workin on the header and navigation. I don’t quite know what the links in the navigation bar will be, so I’ll just leave them as blank buttons for the time being. I’m also going with my favorite “blue & gray” color scheme with splashes of color in the header and the columns. I’d like a posting system that allows for “author icons” so I’m leaving plenty of room for that. In case Chris and Chip are interested, I’ll put the stuff I’m working on in a temp directory on BP when I finish for the day.

I was also going to go see Panic Room today with Jason but I was disappointed to find out that it opens next friday and not today. Dang.

I feel like a 3rd

I feel like a 3rd rate blogger. My writing is horrible and my spelling can be summed up by the word “preschooler.” I’ve never felt so under accomplished in anything. Most of the time I struggle to better myself and somehow it works out. My photography has improved, my web skills too. My writing however, is never inspired, never informed. I feel like I’m the most un-interesting human on the planet. I know thats not true, Dick Cheney is the most uninteresting person on the planet, but still. When I read things like and KeepTrying I’m always impressed by the ease of which the words seem to flow and the points that always make sense. I think I desperately need to take more writing classes. Either that or I need to get over my complexes and realize that some people are just simply gifted at writing and I’m not one of them. I can deal with that. I just hate not being good at something.

On the upside, I’ve got some links for you.

For those of you who are in desperate need of “the good word” on web design, graphic design and things generally artistic, you definatly need to check out Surf Station.

Ever wonder about commercialism and thing on the web going strait to hell. Well then, The End of Free is for you. Keep up to date with all thats wrong with the web today.

I was impressed with PseudoRoom at first glance. Then I realized its completely sliced in Photoshop and loads in one block at a time. I’m still impressed, but now more by the design than the implementation.

Lastly, but not leastly, check out my boy Nagle‘s kick ass wallpaper (Action in 93) over at DevArt.

That is all.

Still not feeling good. Crap

Still not feeling good. Crap on a stick. Or something like that. I think I might hobble over to Barnes & Noble and get a magazine to read as I’m sitting here in my own sickness. The upside is that I get to sit around and do nothing. The downside is that “nothing” is about all I can do. Oh well. I’ve also got some ideas brewing on a design. Maybe I’ll get to that today too. We’ll see.
