hey pretty pretty, give us a smile




Pop77 & Web Nymph are both sporting nifty redesigns. Take a looksee.

Which begs the question: Is The Big Ticket in need of a sprucing up? Who of you out there think my current layout (which has been pretty much the same since May '04) is the definition of suckitude? Opinions / feedback are appreciated, though I'm not promising anything (who has the time?).

MP3 Jens Lekman - "Pretty Shoes"
This demo track comes courtesy of Secretly Canadian's Department of Forgotten Songs, a treasure trove of rare material from Swedish pop lothario Jens Lekman, whose latest album is 2004's excellent When I Said I Wanted to Be Your Dog. It has the word "pretty" in the title, duh.

MP3 Elliott Smith - "Pretty (Ugly Before)"
A somber, reflective, yet lovely song from the late Elliott Smith, off last year's posthumous from a basement on the hill album. As you see, it also has "pretty" in the title. So what do y'all think - should I feel pretty or ugly?

The Big Ticket looks fine, but a little sprucing up never hurt anybody :)

Just don't lose the ticket stubs on the top of the page. Very, very cool stuff up there. One day, my ticket stub collection will be that good.

I like the current layout but miss the elaborate photoshopped designs and fonts you used to do for entries...

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a tapety site/blog. It pretty much covers tapety related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)

Aagh !! I've just spent a whole weekend "sprucing up" my blog due to a glitch that wiped out half my template !! I've ended up re-instating the old look albeit from a very old back up of the html !! Nightmare !!

dude, you gotta back up that template. i do so any time i make any significant change.

sorry 'bout that. i bet that sucks hard.

i can empathise, as i still have to rebuild my giant itunes library after a backup error flushed a month's worth of organization. i've been putting it off for weeks, and i'll probably continue to do so for a while.

ugh.
