look away...

"I'm hideous!"

What? No you're not!

"Yes I am! I'm ugly!"

No! Don't say that! I think you're beautiful.

"But you're my mom! You HAVE to say that! Everyone else probably thinks I'm disgusting."

First of all, that's not true. And if anyone tells you differently, they can go f*ck themselves because, Blog, I think your new look is gorgeous.

"No! It's dumb! I look like I was designed by the same drunk toddlers who redid the Post."


"But it's true! This new logo is childish. I mean, seriously, A stick figure middle finger? Really?"

WHAT?! THAT'S A TWIG! That is a twig that person is holding.

"Why would someone be holding a twig?"


"The arm also seems to be coming out of that person's ear..."


"Or what? You'll delete me?"


DON'T YOU EVER SAY THAT AGAIN! Blog, I love you! Don't you realize that? I would never delete you. Ever! I thought you'd like this new design. I made the logo up especially for you with my own two hands! (And Mac Paintbrush...) I mean, don't you see the badass font I created? The eagle I cut'n'pasted? The middle finger/twig I drew? Not to mention, the entire redesign of the color palette. It's so much easier on the eyes! The lines are so much cleaner. One day you'll appreciate what I've done for you.

"I miss the muppet."

Blog, we will all miss the muppet. But you're not a baby anymore. You're almost four years old!

"Which is exactly what begs the question of why you deemed a child's refrigerator art a suitable logo..."

That's it, Blog. You're grounded. There will be no more writing on you at least until tomorrow.

"But mom!"

Nope. No buts! (Or butts!) Whining will not help. Now, pack up all your pixels and HTML and go to your room. And while you're reading your archives, I want you to remember what's really important here. It's not what's on the outside that matters as much as what's on the inside and that hasn't changed.

"You're right. I think I overreacted. I don't look that bad. Actually, I look kinda cool.

Aww, there's my sweet blog. Now can you give me an e-hug in the form of a painfully awkward, yet hilarious YouTube clip?

"I can't think of anything I'd rather do more. I love you."

I love you too, Blog. I love you too.

Yup, I agree with Justine Love... the new look is nice and clean and looking good.
And it's scary/good to hear that the blog talks to you, butt good/scary that you don't take any e-guff either!

'Nice and clean' is the wrong look for The Anti DC, stick finger flipping the bird notwithstanding.

Thank you for the support, and also thank you for the criticism. I am not 100 percent into this particular iteration of the design, however, I am into the letters I managed to Paintshop out in the logo. I'll probably fiddle with the background colors, etc, a bit. But the middle finger stays.

The middle finger is what makes it truly "DC".
