This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with?
I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time choosing
between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is
because your design and style seems different then most
blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
