Change is here

You may remember me talking about change earlier in the week. And now it's here, the ending of an old layout, and the beginning of a new one.

Anyone who came by this blog over the last few hours might have noticed change slowly occurring (and then changing, and then changing again). Anyone who is here now has hopefully noticed things aren't as they once were.

First, I have a shiny new banner. That's me on the left, and Matt on the right. It's not really us, it's just drawings of us. Or maybe it's not, maybe it is really us. I guess you'll never know...

Second, I have a fancy new colour scheme to try and match the shiny new banner. I was playing with it for a good hour and a half or more to arrive at what I've arrived at, so you better enjoy it or I'll break down and cry. Or maybe I won't. I guess you'll never know...

Third, with the first two soothing your eyes, I thought I'd double the power of this blog and hit another sense. Your ears. I've picked ten different songs for various reasons, which I will discuss now. Or maybe I won't. I guess you'll never know.. unless you keep reading, and then you'll find out.

A Perfect Circle- 3 Libras
The song that inspired the name of this blog. I couldn't make a playlist and not include it.

Saliva- Ladies and Gentleman
Back in the days of myspace I used this song on my space. I felt it summed up the atmosphere there pretty well as it sums up the atmosphere here pretty well- "like nothing you've ever seen before"

Rev Theory - Voices
Because I do have voices in my head.

Tripod - The Hot Dog Man
A great Aussie comedy group. As my niece loves even bad singing, this is the only song I have ever sung for her.

Stabbing Westward- Save Yourself
After my "When I Was Young and Stupid" post, omegaradium suggested I check out this song. And I did. And I enjoyed it so much that now it's here.

Jonathon Coulton- The Future Soon
A song I enjoy because it's interesting to think of a future where we can just erase the parts of ourselves that we don't like.

Flight of the Conchords- Mutha'uckas
A comedy group from our kiwi brothers that had to go on the list because there are too many mutha'uckas uckin with my shi.

Insane Clown Posse- Halls of Illusion
This would be Matt's selection from the whole list. I needed to add a little evil for balance.

Mr Bungle - Retrovertigo
One of my favourite songs ever. It made the list for no reason other than that.

Tool- Vicarious
Made the list because of my love of Dexter and horror films, and this sums up my arguments against those who criticise me for those loves.

I will probably change the songs every few weeks. We'll see how I work that, I have a few ideas there.

As for the banner and the new colours, let me know what you think. I'm open to suggestions there, so if anyone would like to offer any advice feel free to do so.


  1. I loooooooooove it! Especiall Matt, he's supercool, I love that guy :D
    The playlist is cool too, helps me understand you, and that's always a plus. Well done Scon!

  2. This is very refreshing!! I love the new look!! The banner is-- cool!!! Very creative imagination!


  3. Thrice- I know, Matt rocks, I suck =p Sometimes I think of returning to being Matt full time, but I don't think that would be pretty for anybody.

    Stephanie- Thanks!

    yourstruly100- Glad you like it. The whole thing started with the banner and went from there. The banner is the centrepiece.

  4. oooo what an eye candy. i'm now loving your blog even more. everything comes together well. love it.

  5. I likes. I likes. Though I do have to say that it is very bright. After my eyes adjusted and I stopped seeing spots!! LOL j/k it's very cool. From the banner to the bottom.

  6. love the new layout. and no, i didn't get a chance to interview you before, so here goes:
    1) What's your all time favorite food to eat AND make?
    2) Why exactly do you choose to be "eternally single?"
    3) What is the theme song of your life this week? Why?
    4) Tell us your funniest childhood memory.
    5) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

  7. Hillbilly Duhn- I must admit it was a lot brighter when I looked at it at work, than when I looked at it at home. I didn't realise how bright it is.

    Patti Ann- Thanks for the interview. I will do it in a day or two =D And glad you like the new layout.


Every time you comment, I love you a little more...
