I started working on a little redesign last night. It actually looks pretty good. It’s really simple, just as simple as the design now, if not more so. I wanted to get away from the navigation at the top but it looks like that’ll hang around for at least another version. I think I might just change the number of posts that are displayed here from 10 to 3 or 4. I’m trying to minimize the amount of “scroll” the page has.
I actually had multiple designs for the page, ranging from “journal style” with a paper textured background and a setup similar to this, to a really techie feeling page with an over abundance of eye-candy. I settled on something more “matt” feeling. Clean and more or less simple with some interesting bits here and there.
I would normal at this point in the post direct you to a number of anti-RIAA related articles but I fear that it’s been over done. I merely suggest that you read the Reg on a regular basis. That should keep you relatively informed about what’s going on.
On a lighter note, I’m skipping class today. I had a really bad headache when I woke up and that’s never the way to start a day… so I stayed in bed. It was the only sensible thing to do. 🙂
So, not going to class today leaves me time to work on the redesign some more, figure out what I want to take pictures of tonight, tomorrow and the rest of the week as well as take Lauren out to dinner tonight.
Over the past few weeks, while I’ve had no money, Lauren was kind enough to float the bill for most of our weekend activities. I normal don’t like to let her do that, something in my brain about being “the man” and that I’m supposed to pay for things, or some crap like that. Regardless, now I get to pay back her kindness with a trip to one of her most favorite restaurants, Tony Roma’s. We both really love Tony’s, they have some of the best ribs on the planet. So, that’s where I’ll be tonight.
Oh, and just for the sake of complete randomness, I made a font. Yes, a font. Of my own handwriting even. Go figure. I’m not going to post it now but I will add it to the new version of the “downloads” page once I finish it. If you really want it so bad that you can’t wait for it let me know and I’ll drop you an email.
Prepare yourself for a new design.
That is all… for now.
