The new layout is done! It took longer than I expected, which was partly because I went on another bus tour right in the middle of putting it up >_>
So, after contemplating layouts based on the Mighty Boosh, Green Wing and Fay, I decided to ignore those and go for robots instead. Because everybody likes robots :3
Copied from the about page:
Robot style this time because robots are undeniably cool. The photo used in this layout was taken by myself; it features Nick sporting an awesome Daft Punk-style robot helmet that was made by Steve. The two songs that inspired this layout are, 'Robot Man' by The Aliens and 'Robot Rock' by Daft Punk.
If you want any more robot themed songs, I suggest listening to 'Half Man Half Machine' by Goldie Lookin Chain and just about anything by Daft Punk.
You should also listen to MSTRKRFT if you haven't already. Not really anything to do with robots, but they are awesome. Just over a month until the album comes out and by golly I can't wait.
If you know of any other robot songs then please let me know.
Songs about robots >>>> Other songs
So many dirty lies!
James - you were never a catalogue model
Linda - only your namesake is a model
Nick - a few visits to the swimming pool does not a toned body make (please, no photos of your body, thank you)
@The mighty poosh:
I have yet to make plans for the next layout. I’ll probably decide closer to the time.
That site looks interesting, I’ll have to have a browse through the titles. I did find a site where you could read the original monkey’s paw story, it’s quite scary, here.
I’ll make a post about the Da Vinci Code later.

@ might Goose: I think Janine’s friends have had experience in modelling: one in catalogue, the other in the ‘adult industry’.
@ Janine: the site looks good-whata re your plans for the next one? I hope it involves some little chinese girl. Now that would be cool.
I imagine Nick does not have a toned body under the ghastly t shirt but I am willing to be proved wrong. so show us your bod nick!!! hmm maybe thats for another site…
hmmm…mighty goose …sounds so intriguing
thank you! I hope that it went okay too, but not I’m happy that I’m free, I’m freeeee!!!
Yes, I’ve seen the movie but I’ll write about it in the letter as well…I’d love to hear your impressions. Oh, I also ordered “Gothic Belly Dance CD” some of my favourite things - Goth subculture & oriental dance combined…it should be interesting.
Oh, and I found this awesome web site www.gutenberg.org with full length, commercial free texts. I’m reading “The Monk” - a gothic novel that was considered really scandalous ;p at the time it was written.
speaking of scandalous…Nick & Janine - Nick tells us about his toned body…now how ’bout some proof …in pictures…ok, ok …keep it PG

Dear Janine and other scum,
As you know I am your only friend with prior experience as a model. If you would like to me to do a professional job for you, give me a call.
you know who I am.
Congratulations on taking the LSAT! I hope it went OK. I will start drawing chapter 5 tomorrow, hopefully. I have to go see the Da Vinci code today (woo!), have you seen it?
@The Mighty Koosh:
Wow, even though we have never met, I feel like I can really understand you. Almost like we came from the same womb or something. Crazy.

= Best saying ever.

Hi Janine and all you others who have complimented!
I am the model from the picture, but I’m not a professional. I haven’t really considered a career in modelling, but would be willing to try things out if anybody is interested. I am very open-minded when it comes to photo shoots and have a toned body from swimming.
I’m sorry if people don’t like the t-shirt. That’s the problem with fashion, one man’s meat is another man’s poison.
I’m sorry to have hurt your feelings janine (even though we have never met). To make you feel better I have put a link to your website from mine! This is so that it is easier for me to access (Its difficult to spell conundrum correctly first time)-you wo n’t get more visitors because of this link because no one will be interested in mine. There is no porn.
Hello! I received your letter last week! Yay, thank you…I will respond to it promplty (I will, I willl, don’t look at me like that). On Monday I took the LSAT so now that this torture is over I hope that I can return back to living. The results will be out in 3 weeks. You’ll read all the tales of doom about this test in my letter.
Now, what’s good about the new layout: the unfussy background is much easier on the eyes, plus i love this shade of green, so that’s awesome.
What I miss about the old layout: your picture of Chloe.
This brings me to my next point yay for the new Clematis page! I hope to see more of those coming our way.
P.S. robot man Nick - tres kawai!
Alright guys, alright, that’s enough about the model.
Firstly: I wanted a male model, so I’m afraid that rules Linda out.
Secondly: Robots aren’t supposed to have charisma anyway.
Thirdly: Thanks for the compliments.
You know, I had originally pictured the design with Nick wearing his red jumper, but now I think the colours of this T-shirt actually go a little better.
PS like the colours.
Like the effort but the picture of linda and james was way better. they are natural models whereas this model lack charisma. and his t shirt looks AWFUL.
