New Logo, Suckas!

There are a couple of issues with my site that have been bothering me.

  • It’s taking forever to load.
  • I never fully loved the guy floating.

The speed thing is being looked at.  Because my site has so much design (most blogs don’t), it’s tricky to keep the integrity of the graphics and also have the blog load at a decent clip.  Thanks for being patient, and we’ll get it fixed.

The guy floating was nice, but…

  1. I don’t own a briefcase because this isn’t 1987.
  2. I don’t wear a trench coat because this isn’t 1987.

Here was the old design.  Cool, but not entirely me.

I had a new one built that was more “D.J.”  Updated, appropriate attire, and the backpack I use to cart my dog around every day.  True, I do wear a suit to work, but in my spare time you’ll see me almost exclusively in solid color t-shirts and jeans.  Underneath I wear the most amazingly sexual pair of undies you’ve ever pulled off with your teeth.  Just kidding – they’re simple boxer briefs.  With holes.

By the way, why is it called a “pair” of underwear?  I’m guessing because you have two legs?  But what about dudes with one leg?  I guess they probably have bigger problems than worrying about vernacular.

Below is the new logo.  Simple and more subtle.  The floating now makes sense because I am so constantly lost in my own thoughts that I miss most stuff around me.  And the illustration now looks more like me.

Since I don’t have a head drawn, if anyone would like to draw my head, I’d put it on the site somewhere.  That might be kind of funny.

New Floating D.J.
This is right.

    If you’re concerned about page weight, I would reconsider adding a graphic of your head.

      @PunchAb I do have unfortunately large melon. It’s what kept me out of the good schools.

    Thanks for the typo alert! I fixed it!

    Now, go somewhere else with your criticisms. Ha.

    Seriously, THANKS for being a great reader!

    About a week ago I came across a site with an very similar layout:

    At first I was like “OH MY GOD, THAT POSER!”. but then I just thought your layout and theirs was just a template from somewhere.

    1. D.J. Paris says:

      @circustoybox Ha- yes, it’s a template. I’ve customized the sh*t out of it, though. Pretty much every blogger you see uses a template (most use Thesis theme), and then customize. The good news is I’m probably the biggest blogger to use this theme 🙂
