New Look

So, in an effort to jazz this place up...

I've come up with a little graphic for the top of the blog. It was fun to make and I think it turned out well. I'm continually trying to make this blog look a little sharper and thus enhance, frankly, my entertainment in using it.

It's not as dramatic a change as the first time that we saw Andre Agassi show up without those gorgeous locks of his but it's still a change.

So, you're probably asking yourelf, "Self, what is this fancy picture that Cheek has come up?" Well, it's my imaginary room - full of a bunch of crap that I simply must have to live my life. It's pretty simply living mind you but that's just sort how it goes for me. It's "imaginary" for two reasons: A) my room doesn't really look anything like this and 2) Lady Cheek would never let me leave all of my pop culture relics lying around the place.

Lady Cheek also thinks that the picture is kind of like an old issue of know, that classic magazine that we used to read as kids while sitting in the waiting room at the dentist (I never saw that magazine anywhere else). You basically look through the picture and find all the random references to my life. I've included references to favorite movies, books, TV shows, music and sports.

One of the nice things about this picture is that I can constantly change it. I can add things and delete things. It rather fun to do so.

Take a gander and tell me what you see. Let me know your thoughts and if you see something that I need to add, subtract...or mulitply and divide.

See you next time!

The readability of the slogan under your "Cheek's Blog" is pretty difficult hard to read.

You might want to consider less dropshadow or a different font. Since your background is so busy, you'll want to do something that helps it stand out.

Love it! It's mesmerizing. If I did have one thing to suggest, I'd say add a couch and a tennis ball; perhaps someone challenging someone to a game of the game.

If that's too difficult, then Tetris would probably be an acceptable addition.

I think it looks great!

I'm glad to see that you have better taste in alcohol (mmmm... Makers) and Music (Lost and Gone Forever is by far the best Guster cd) than you do in college sports teams... :)

Awesome header, Cheek. The Makers bottle and red solo cup were a wonderful addition!

Thanks for the feedback everyone! It's a work in progress.

And as for you, Amy!...well, I shake my fist at you!!
