New Banner

Well, it's been awhile since I posted, once again, I apologize (as usual). Life is busy, and there are only so many hours in a day. Unfortunately, when something needs to be put on hold to make room for other things, this blog is the first to go. That doesn't mean I have forgotten about it, or anything like that. Just means my posts get less then regular.

One of the things that has been keeping me busy is that I have been learning flash, because of a new job opportunity opening up in the next few months. Since the best way to see if you know something is to try and apply the knowledge you have gained, I decided to throw together a little banner for the blog. Nothing extravagant (I have a fairly zen view of web design, I like things simple and subtle.). It starts off with a picture of a dude playing a national with a slide, I tween the saturation down, and tint it to match the color of the header used in the template. Then there is a fade in of the title text, and about a quarter of a second of blur animation as the caption comes in. The only thing kind of heavy is the background music, (backwards blues, by bob brozman), but that can be controlled with the play/pause buttons in the lower right hand corner.

Anyways, let me know what you think. And for those who enjoy classic rock, I just uploaded the Between ep by Vetiver. Gotta run now, but expect a new post tomorrow, or super late tonight.

Hey gustavo,

Thanks for the encouragement! Your blog looks great, lots of the great old bluesmen. Unfortunately, I don't speak spanish, so I can't really comment on the content :(

Keep the faith though, its not many people who still have a love for the old styles of music. It would be a sad day if the blues ever faded out of existance.
