sorry, the old design was feeling more freezer burned by the day. I'm not in love with this one, but I have put some time in to take it from a 3 column to a 2 column design. Let's consider it a work in progress.
upsides? it looks cleaner, and I should be able to add a real menu bar.
downsides? running with this design means I have to go back and fix my images (oh the excitement!) Plus every now and then an image doesnt show up. Plus I don't know if the design is two lightly colored (but that can be tweaked)
let me know what you think, i can easily be convinced to move on

UPDATE: yeah, I'm on a different (cheezier) monitor now and the colors looked all washed out, so I'm tinkering a bit.
