    Well! I upgraded to 1.5 and since i first started I have changed some things here and there and have rested happily on this design.

    An Adventure of an Entertainer

    this site is to log my pursuit as an actor and to keep friends and family informed on my latest news.

    Things are still being altered here and there, specifically I have been trying desperately to get a Image Text Replacement working for my server (the ALA version doesn't work for me) and have also been trying to get a gallery for my headshots and onset and onstage productions. New pics of my latest shoot hopefully up tonight, on my new 1.5 wordpress. yeah!

    :)

    I like it too. I've always been a big fan of the blue/orange color combo.

    I like your sidebar titles too, with the magazine theme. The only thing I'd say is to increase the space between the right side of the comments and the sidebar, they're right on top of each other. But I tend to like a wider setup so it might just be my own preference. :)

    Can you tell me where you found your theme code? Did you design it yourself. It's fantastic!!

    make sure you take some time to check out some scenic places. one i'm sure you'd enjoy is snoqualmie falls-- absolutely beautiful and if i remember correctly there's a nice hike down to the river if you enjoy hikes. on the way out there and just past are a lot of places that still seem virtually untouched. that's what i love about washington-- you can still see nature...unlike in fl where i used to live...hah; it's pretty much just asphault there anymore.

    what a great spot...you should do templates....or do you.. I did not notice..
    I love it..
    oh and good luck with acting.. I am a stage hand in los(t) angeles. I also worked for a acting coach, so I know it can be very grueling..

    thanks for the tip xtheunderdog!

    latinastyln thanks! I don't currently do templates but would love to. Guess I never considered it. Maybe we'll meet up in the workforce one day. I'll make sure to bookmark you.

    looks very good, i like the turned page effect on your posts but i also think the whole site is a little to narrow and should be widened a little

    hey thanks bryan, i was pretty happy with the corner folds myself :) I did a lot of browsing through my fav magazines but it was just the subtle things like the folds that pulled off the theme more than anything.

    Very nice. I like the layout. Reminds me of a magazine cover. Although, the colors are a little feminine.

    thanks madie :) perhaps i'm expressing my feminine side a bit? haha I dunno. Once again, i'm glad the magazine theme is coming through.

    Nothing wrong with the feminine side. : ) It is a nice design. It an eye catcher.

    Cool one :D I dig it :) No negative sides at all except for the horizontal lines in the bg, make my eyes flick :p But as said, I dig whole site, very nice work!

    Great design, and makes for interesting reading as well. I was particularly surprised at how good the cyan looks. I tend to stay away from it because I find it a bit ~@|@~, but with your design, is in good balance with the whites and oranges, and has now given me cause to change my mind.

    Make more designs please and release for the rest of us :)

    well thanks again! i've had several people asking for the design so I'm gonna go ahead and make a template soon and release it. I'm contemplating releasing it along with a new redesign but i'll have to think about that.

    Of course it might not be for a while, I just moved to Seattle so I've got a lot of stuff to take care of, along with getting broadband again!

    soon. :)

    JT! My mom and I have desperately been trying to figure out how to make the perfect magazine theme. Yours is still the best we can find. Please please let us know when you can share your theme. Hope things are going well in Seattle.

    hey takeiteasymama! thanks for the interest and all the kind comments. madie thanks you too, i enjoy your blog as well.

    I decided that I will only offer up the theme once I retire this one and do a redesign. But for now this design is working for me and I still enjoy it. In the meantime I am working on another theme (that i'm rather excited about) to hopefully tide you over.

    If you have suggestions for themes i'm definitely open to them as well. :)

    Hey joey. I like the pull-down menus for sorting your Archive. I particularly like the option of sorting "by title" (alphabetic), I'm hoping to have alphabetic post sorting by title on my category pages (and in the archives), so this gives me hope (starting my 1st WP).

    On your magazine theme, I noted the bar-code and mailing-address sticky with postal barcode at the bottom. I have to say I am kinda tired of seeing dogeared page corner-graphics at the top (it's an old GUI style, on and off web) but your pagecorners look better than most, and I especially like your dogeared page at the bottom corners (it seems more vertical, like turning into the next page of the magazine rather than just folding down the corner). Two more things, your eye looks kinda red in the header graphic, the red might be brought-out by the surrounding blue. And your cyan teal stripe background reminds me of JAMZ shorts.
