V14: “Clouds” a.k.a. Make it LIGHTER!

I know that I’ve had this design iteration of my blog up for quite some time, but I never really considered it complete. In fact, I still don’t think it’s optimal, but it’s about time I post about it anyway.

Unlike the last design, the colour scheme here is dominantly white and cyan. This time around I really wanted to show that I wasn’t all dark and suicidal. That scares people away. What the lighter colours do here is invite people to come in and read (hence the dark text on white background). If you’re complaining that it makes your eyes bleed, then that’s your fault. Turn on some [more] lights and sit farther away from the monitor – you’re mutilating your eyes (glasses/contact user, here) by not doing so. Continue reading “V14: “Clouds” a.k.a. Make it LIGHTER!”

10 Unique Album Covers

iTunes Album ArtThe art on the cover of an album reflects the style of the artist and what their music sounds like. I don’t know if it’s coincidence, but I find that a lot of really great songs are accompanied by some equally great album art.

Version 13

Woop, new site design. How exciting. The only reason why I’m writing this is so that I can test the said design to the fullest extent. I might as well Very Important Codeelaborate on some things in the process. As you may know, this is based upon the wonderful WordPress application and a heavily modified P2 theme. I was reluctant to move over to WordPress, but I’m now way over that and am itching to make some of my own plugins and other extensions like that.

19 Provocative Tracks

Andain - Beautiful Things

I call a song provocative when it provokes you to think about or do something. The best ones even evoke some sort of emotion or memory, but those are rare and vary depending on the person. In this long overdue post, I outline some of my favourite provocative tracks. These usually get my juices flowing – be it for work or for play – I tend to do better after listening to these. Lame sounding, I know, but it’s true.

There’s a lot of genres here, and one of them is probably going to spike some of your interest… just take a peek inside.

10 More Awesome Songs

Since my last post about outstanding songs, my collection of the said genre has grown (almost double!). So, on this gloomy day, I thought I would take the time to share them with you. Unlike last time, let’s jump in right away, and I’ll explain why each song is great as we go.

These songs are in no special order, and as always, I’ll try and make the selection as diverse as possible. If you don’t like one song, just keep going though the list and you’ll probably find something you can enjoy.
