Looks way too simple. I kinda liked your previous design.

Simple and easy for the eye. I like the light blue color.

This is simple & neat!!

Looks good. But I hope this is not going to be the final design.

Pretty simple for a kollywood guy. But seriously I liked your previous color. Isn't that like comparing aayitha ezhuhtu to kannathil muthamittal. i know i shouldn't be doing that.

Awesome! Much better and cleaner! All you need now is a sprinkle of colour on your blog :)

Thanks for the feedback chaps. Yeah! It is nice and simple, might appear a little colourless and quite incomplete. Like everything else, my blog too is always a work in progress and an exercise in vanity. Thanks; I appreciate all your comments except for Lazy for having referred to a certain "...wood". Note: I never want to be associated with any kind of forest/arboreal/timber suffix. I am NOT that! :)

i agree with some of the others. I liked the previous one much better .. the colors were good.
though i understand that u would have had compatibility issues. Anywayz, hope u can improve the color schemes on this.

Ah! Neat. Relief for the bandwidth-challeneged!
Use earth colors (the Browns, the reds (vermilion is my fav) just try out some earth colors... the template is cool. And now about your pic: the current pic though smaller than the one you used earlier, conveys more. This pic inspires (most likely in girls) a lot of intrigue; the serial killer expression is just that: a killer. So, if you have not already lost it, you will lose it soon. The virginity that is. contrasing Bg and intense_red are not connected. I will email you shortly the version I liked the most (minus the goof-ups); at least, you'll learn 'how not to write a script'.

I kinda liked the Titanic effect - from your previous template. But whatever works, I guess.

Template is ok. a tad less glamorous, but is a working progress i guess...Not an exercise in vanity, but in shrouding it with creativity..
## What did you think of Spiderman 2? curious..also, cant wait to bitch...
## Thanks for the Seymore Chatman reference. Am half way into it. The approach is structuralist, but an embracing structuralism, not exclusionary..Will write more after reaching the other cover.
## What is your 2 cents worth about the 'Truckers of Tamil nadu'?

Suman: Glad you like it. Glad about my killer looks, but not glad about bringing in the "if not" factor.. that seems to question my...
Changing the topic: I kinda like blue. It goes with my face! (Now THAT'S a vain bastard!)
Sure would like to read your screenplay. Your comments on it reminds me of my first (attempt at a) screenplay -- A rather embarrasing work on hindsight.
Pavithra: Now that you've mentioned Titanic, I am glad that I took that picture off. :p
OK just some useless info. (If you're interested) The old backrground picture (the Ahem! Titanic one) was clicked by a good friend in Bangalore under a reading lamp. We were testing his new darkroom and wanted some dispensable exposures on some old BW stock. I was acting like I was trying to soak up the light from above... Not Shah Jehan, Not Madhavan and definitely not Titanic!
The current picture is one that I clicked myself. This time in front of the bathroom mirror. (I flipped the picture in photoshop)
# I have not seen Superman 2 yet
# I have not reached the other cover of Seymour Chatman yet
# I have no opinion about the truckers... Yet! :)

I liekd the earlier template, had a very diff feel to it. This one is way too simple, its nice but the previous one was aesthetically better. Cud u have the earlier one without any erors?

Anand: what does one have to do to qualify for a link of his/her blog to yours?
posted by Mitochondria12:44 am, July 28, 2004
Mito: Crosslinking is a symbiotic thingy! Sorta like back-scratching... you do mine.. I do yours! Now I've done yours! Your's has an XML feed, hence it occupies the "fed content" blogroll, and has been classified thusly. Your blog shall also be automaticaly subscribed to via my newsreader.
And now I know about the truckers of Tamil Nadu! For the others who do not, please visit mitochondrias blog. ;)

Shobha: We all have our regrets. Sadly my old template shall forever be like an unrequited romance. Ever a fond memory but never to be lived again. Something that is error personified can never be cleansed of it. Its beauty lay in its blemishes. Much like the moon. But alas... most browsers and operating systems and processors and screen sizes do not like the moon. So threw the moon out and got myself a neon sign! Hardly a replacement.. but the techies love it!

Anand.....talking poetry? :P

Anand, summa kalasinen. Avlothaan. no idea of assosiating you to any wood or it's tribe.
posted by lazy geek9:27 am, July 28, 2004
can I take a look at your first script/screenplay :)
posted by3:01 pm, July 28, 2004
This one looks simple and neat Anand. Nice work.

Anand, Thanks for scratching my back.

Sree: My first (attempt at a) feature length screenplay was not too bright. If I have ever worked up a reputation for being sensible through my blog (very dubious), I might lose all that if you read it. Of course, when I wrote it, I thought I was writing this seminal work about a man in a quest for another, hearing voices along the way, but only after I finished it did I realise that this fell flat somewhere between The Shawshank Redemption and Apocalypse Now. I think I have put you off enought to not ask me again!
No problemo Mito!

Ok, ok (nervous).All right. No more Titanic.
:-)). But I still liked the pic (and the background info). Is this one going to be here for keeps?
posted by Pavithra8:33 am, July 29, 2004
The previous template was much more snazzy. Now its slightly ordinary, but very simple and elegant.
And it IS pleasing on the eyes
posted by8:35 am, July 29, 2004
On the contrary I find it interesting !! I am all the more interested. BTW, what is your email id?
posted by11:41 am, July 29, 2004
Shree: Forget it dude...! I am not too keen about shwoing off my first screenplay.. but for sure I will make available online something else.. something more sensible. :) Thanks for your interest.

Fine :)) . Thanks.
