Paul is Back

So, here’s our new design, featuring the return of Paul Verlaine. What do you think?

There are a lot more site changes on the way, especially a better right nav, a new version of the indie ads program, and better genre/topic article indexing. For now, we just wanted to get the new look up and make sure it doesn’t break anything. Please let us know if it does.

    I like how things are opening up. It feels a little more breezy, not as stuffy. I’m not locked into a topic or two. And it’s nice to see the old fart again.

    Old times

    I used to want the old web site back, but now realise I just wanted the return of Mr Verlaine. Something about that green glow and relaxed mien. It comforts me.

    Now, I’m still trying to figure out the new site design (it’s a bit like a labyrinth). But there’s something very comforting about that dude with wine there. He’s either depressed or chilling. Either way, I am glad he’s there.
