As you can see, I've made some changes to the blog. I've gone with a simpler (some will say more boring) template and made some changes to font and color. Frankly, the old, lime green version was starting to annoy me (I'm sure it had been annoying most of you for some time). If you know me at all, you know that I like things clean and simple. This is about as clean and simple as you get.

Ed. Note: I do realize that there may be a number of you who will never see these changes since you only read this through your RSS reader. In that case, enjoy this looking exactly like it always has. -JF (4/9/07 - 1:05 pm CDT)

I didn't quite steal the McSweeney's site template, but it's pretty close. However, this site is definitely reminiscent of their published material what with all of their thin borders and such. On that note, I definitely recommend subscribing to McSweeney's Quarterly Concern if you are the kind of person who is always looking for something new and different to read. I've been a subscriber for almost a year now and have received and enjoyed issues #20, #21 and #22. Issue #22 has been especially enlightening as it features a section on the Oulipians - of which I knew nothing about. However, the stories have been very interesting.

I'll write more about McSweeney's in the future and maybe even write a few reviews on the issues.
