Kubrick withouth changing anything its not cool, its too white, and the typography its not good. The best of kubrick its the structure and the way it separate header, footer, image folders, index, archives, and search: that is the grat work of binary bonsai's author.
I have changed colors, header, background, and side bars a lot. I have added a new drop down menu and the way to show the end of posts [ gray and green bar ].
I think its a great template to start, all times its difficult to write thi first code in css or stars to change index.php of default wordpress template, kubrick is agood beggining, but its good if yoy use it to change all you can, would be terrible if all blogs look the same.
