New city, new look
A while back I lamented the fugliness of this site, but then I ended up scrapping my redesign efforts, and No Film School's less-than-stellar appearance persisted. For posterity's sake, until today, NFS looked like this:
While I knew this site needed an extreme makeover worthy of a shitty reality television series (is there any other kind?), I didn't exactly have the time to redesign the whole thing properly. So, this weekend I quickly jacked a theme from Bharath Kumar (thanks, Bharath), modified it a bit, and now you have the new, hopefully improved, No Film School. One day this site will look great; today is not that day. But it does look better, I think.
If you're a longtime No Film School reader (meaning, your name is John, Pat, Scott, or Becca), then you'll notice the organization of this site has changed. Categories have been simplified ("Internet Tanning" has changed to "Web," "Worthless Opinions on Worthwhile Issues" has changed to "Politics," etc.). The pages are now listed across the top, and there will be some new ones coming soon.
The biggest change is that the site is (finally) three columns. I'm of two minds on this; on one hand, the third column allows for more functionality. On the other, it distracts from the main text, which is what this site is (supposed to be) about. But given that I'm now a bona fide New Yorker, with actual stuff to do, my entries will likely become shorter (which no one will object to, I'm sure). On the other hand, the quality of my writing may also go (deeper?) in the shitter. So it goes.
I made all these changes in a hurry, so it's likely that I'll be tweaking and adding a lot in the weeks to come. Let me know what you think of the new look, and thanks as always for visiting. Hopefully now is when this story gets interesting.
