    Friend's website (spam-ish)

    A friend of mine is a singer/songwriter and I've been his webmaster for a while. I just finished a new design for him and thought I'd show it off.

    BlakeBrown.com

    Also got a question for you. I sacrificed a lot of image quality for a quick load time. What do you guys think? Did I sacrifice too much? On my 1600x1200 the damage is very apparent, but on my roomates 1280x1024 it wasn't so bad.

    ps - If you download the Honest Lie MP3, that's your's truly on drums. Not exactly my finest moment on that CD, but it's all that's up.

    So THAT'S where you get your name from....



    Very professional design! I will be sure to check out the music when I get home.



    EDIT: Wow. I'm reading the bio, and I think I'm going to like this music. He's played with a lot of cool bands (Engine Down, Blood Brothers, etc.).....and he sounds like Bright Eyes? I'm all over this

    *cough*I've opened for Engine Down and Blood Brothers too. Didn't think anyone here would even know who they were. Of course, I've also opened for Jimmy Eat World (they stole my bassist's guitar strap and a mic from the venue. grr), Guttermouth, Planes Mistaken For Stars, and played a festival with Sir Mix-a-lot and Less than Jake, but that was all ages ago. Back in high school. I'm done bragging now.

    As for the Bright Eyes reference, Blake's music is VERY mellow. It holds similarities, but it's really mellow and a lot of people get turned off by that.

    Here's that MP3 I was talking about Miko:

    It looks good to me at 1280x1024. I even bumped up my resolution to 1600x1200 and it still look fine to me. I know you're one to be picky about things but I think the fast load time is worth it.

    Great site H-Hour... Looked great at 1280x1024.

    Only thing I could see that I, personally, would have done differently is make the links contrast with the background a little more. I had to look close to make sure I was click what I thought I was clicking. Even a java roll-over would be sufficient. The artwork was amazing and the style was ever present. Again, it was great!

    Thanks phyllis and logical.

    I contemplated roll-over effects, but just couldn't come up with anything that matched the style. I'll keep messing with it.
