Redesign of Phronk.com

It's been a while since I've changed the look of this blog, and the Christmas lights were getting a little old, so welcome to the new Phronk.com.

Blogger has some nice new tools for customizing blogs, but I still had to learn the entire language of CSS in one night to get these fancy transparent backgrounds to work. Unfortunately, looking pretty will not make my writing any better, nor will it get me laid.

At least Youtube videos won't get cut off at the sides now.



It's still under construction. People either loved the zombies in the banner at the top, or hated them. Well...
So the zombies will be back.

Stay tuned.



Update Apr. 6 4:40pm: Sadie alerted me to this:



OMG. It's my two favourite things in the entire world mashed together. I'm in love. UUUGH...MY HEART CAN'T TAKE IT GOODBYE A.SDFLDASKNnfsdal

I like.

I was a hater of the old header ONLY because the file was like 14500 kb big. Bring it back but compress please!

I'm kinda surprised you're on Blogger at all given the length of your tenure. Seems like most long terms bloggers migrate to wordpress or other. But having said that, I like the new look. Very nice.

Tres bien, mon ami!

I adore that cover. I'm seeing them live in about a month! Also, Paramore covered it as well. Not as good as 30 seconds to mars, but none the less exciting.

Aw, you should have asked me. I so mastered the art of the transparency. I could have linked you to some helpful sites.

I like zombies. No matter where they are. I finally finished World War Z a few weeks ago. It was long, but I loved it.

ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES...


AND an band I've actually heard of AND own their CDs! Awesome, had not heard that cover.

About time you took those fucking Christmas lights down...lol

DR: I will compress it to accommodate your 28.8k modem. (But seriously, thanks; didn't realize it was so big).

Tatiana: I've considered Wordpress and use it for other blogs, but Blogger has just been a good fit here, and I wouldn't wanna break all pre-existing links.

Wings: Thanks!

Sadie: OMG lucky! I love the Paramore cover I found on Youtube. I think I'll post it. Wooo, thanks!

Shine: I'll come to you next time I have transparency issues. I'm almost done WWZ too! I'm amazed by its detail and breadth, but yeah, it's long and slow.

Hey Lady! I haven't heard much of them, but I like this cover so much that I might have to check out Jordan Catalano's band.

BRay: I knew you'd appreciate that. :)

I was starting to wonder when you were going to take those damn Christmas lights down. Zombies are definitely better. I like the new look--cleaner, brighter, easier to see stuff!

Hey Lady! said...

Yeah, "Jordan Catalano" stopped me from giving this band a chance at first, I highly recommend the album "A Beautiful Lie", I think it's great.

I can never thank you enough for linking to that Paramore cover. I heart them on a level that is not healthy. Their cover of "Use Somebody" is brilliant too, but really...anything that sweet little lady sings is pure genius anyway. I like the new blog look!

I like the new look and will have to look into it myself. I have the same reluctance to move as well.
