    Yes, I know it's WordPress... but as a site, what do you think?

    What's wrong with wordpress? I've always found that wordpress is a good platform to develop on. Its easy to style and even easier to build plug-in's for it. The only downside is that the support forum takes about a week to get a reply.

    As for your site, good design, interesting content. Would i come back? Probably not, I'm really a person that reads blogs. Still its nice.

    The one thing you could fix is the order in which your galleries are displayed. Seems a bit random at the moment.

    On a sub note, been trying to work out who did an excellent cover of 'shot through the heart' by Bon Jovi. After looking round your site I saw the Atreyu at the bottom of your site and it all clicked. Awesome song.

    Well, not coming back because you don't, as a rule, read blogs is fair enough. Someone else pointed out that my galleries were in a funny order too. I'll sort that out now.

    Glad I could help you find Atreyu. I saw them live this friday just gone and they ended with that song!

    Generally, I think you've done a good job. The header graphic is attractive. I have a couple suggestions. In the navigation, the current page appears as a tab, but the rest of the nav does not. I would make it consistent and have all tabs or none. I think there are too many colors of text - white, black, green, and blue. Since the green is so prominent in the header, I would eliminate it as a text color.

    Hey there.

    I don’t have any room to talk really as this is much better than what I can do. But I would want folks to be honest. Especially with things they don’t like, so here it goes.

    The skateboard, tape, spray can image is interesting. Its not real obvious to me what you are trying to say with the logo. The gorilla playing the drums is pretty cool. It gave me a laugh.

    I find the main body text difficult to read. Especial the dates like “October 20, 2007” to dark.

    Cool cars pics.


    I will be posting my one feedback request. Id love your comments.

    I like skateboarding, garffiti art and music.... Not sure how I could have made it clearer

    I have tried to have it all as tabs but found it didn't look very good.

    i like the header bit with the skateboards and that, but i dont really like the navigation i'm afraid - its just not showy enough for my liking!

    also I know i'm being boring but i think that the line-height of the text is too small - it looks kind of crowded

    Yeah, I know what you mean about the navigation. I've been trying to find something that is a little bit more showy but without compromising my web standards and accessibility.

    I've played around with the line height too and trust me, it looks crap if I increase it. Wish it didn't.
