IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

Icky! So not Jade.
<333

mini rex said...

Um, I guess I just hope you don't do the same thing to your hair.

Pookie said...

It reminds me of bad thinks, like vomit, and Bacteria.

Pookie said...

*bad things

Stupid typos.

Amelia Imelda said...

*rotfl*

LostCatharsis [DF] said...

Haha is that a flower petal in your banner? lol

schehl_07 said...

Wow. This certainly is... different. Not so good.
Can't tell you how happy I am to hear the Blaqk Audio news.

Ma patience a des limites, n'en abusez pas! said...

The change...was not expecting it

Mama Khat said...

hmmm...don't want to sound like a horrible person so we'll go with... "Doesn't fit your personality". Is that a nice way of putting it??...I don't like the templates they have to chose from! :(

Arisma said...

It made my eyes bleed, so if that's what you're going for, rock on!

There should be a widget. The more widgets the merrier.

Shy Girls Win said...

We have moments said...

I feel like listening to The beatles now....

Haha the templates great,it's so random and funny.

Stephanie said...

Sexy!

Courtney said...

Wow, it's... interesting. Kinda throws off your whole "Let me holla at ya" thing though, haha. Ah well. :) - Courtney

Katie said...

Hmm so not Jade. I was very confused when I saw it. But you know, what are you going to do?

Heather said...

KLP!

gentle scream said...

i kinda like it. Though the borders need to match your video settings.

Daya Disaster said...

err... wow.
It looks kind of like mold.
Not the good kind either.
You know, like in medicinces?
yeah...

lauriellen said...

umm.
lol.

black_dust said...

Looks like a pear in that banner, Pearboy :p

darkness069 said...

uuummm....

im just gonna say that i liked the old one, this one is too... green

...a weird green >_<

somehow, it kinda reminds me to davey's eyeshadow in the IHAV DVD, jajajajajaajajaj

luv ya!!!
Ana <3

tara said...

Hideous! Jade give this damn thing some of your style.

NoRegretLife said...

It's all green!

It's not so monochomatic anymore. (maybe monochromatic Green.......)

BTW, your grammar is silly. Or as we call it in Iowa. "Dat grammy be stoopid!" Ha.

BTW, I'm starting a blog/column about the elitism in music and what we can do to help before we're all fucked. And all we have to listen to is repetitive electronic bytes. Like Pac-Man.
Intrested in helping with any input? From the Artist side of things?

-Courtney

MissDisease said...

the greens aren't very....nice. They're kinda icky.

<3

Christina said...

This is basically my template but in less attractive colors.

liebling said...

I wouldn't call it ugly...

Well...ok, I would. But green is just so...green! :/

Girls Don't Cry said...

Not going to lie, I really don't hate the layout. But I'd like to point out that you DO have some floral action going on around your username.

-A!!ison- said...

absolutely awful. appalling. atrocious. terrible. horrible. dreadful. horrific. unspeakable. abysmal.

said...

Black and pink would be cooler.
This seems too.....tranquil...

AlainaKayoss said...

hxc

missataxia said...

Aw, sorry you had to change.

s omber resplendence said...

This disturbs me.
It reminds me of...

it reminds me of my grandma.

Please don't turn into my grandma, Jade.

I don't want people to be hitting on my grandma.

Mrs. Hoek said...

Hahaha.
Why do you have it if you think it's ugly?

Markus said...

Uh... nice..?

Sam said...

Pffffft, whatever dude! I like it! XD

Mindy said...

it's a bit nancy looking.

Bella said...

haha amazing layout ;)

I'm happy that you and Davey are working. Can't wait to hear it.

Also, next week...DAVIS!!! ya babey!!!

the straight edge guitarist said...

reminds me of the wallpaper at the doctors office....eeeeeewwwww.
<3

schehl_07 said...

I second the widget motion, by the way.

vanessa said...

The all black one was nice.Can you customize it? My blog is ugly too, but I don't use it much so I haven't bothered figuring out how to change it.

natalieee! said...

Woah. I never knew you had such a soft side Jade. Nice flowers... I guess

miseryXchord said...

It's, uh.... uh... sort of of like the page in the biological supply catalog where you order slime molds and stuff, except prettier...?

Lil Laker said...

E Gad! I miss your old blog template, can't wait for Blakq Audio!

Failure By Design said...

...interesting.

||entangledwire|| said...

it is great but not so you. like some of them suggested, customising it is another alternative. :)

ShadowNight808 said...

I had a brief "wtf" moment when I saw it :/

it's a rather icky shade of green if you ask me, reminds me of mold and stuff.

Pidgey said...

Mine is way sexier.
You'd be jealous.

leah said...

honestly? i laughed.
it could be worse..

SingToMeTheirElegy said...

Yeah it kinda scared me when the page loaded...I'm not a big green fan and it does seem out of place.

So. Fee. Uh. said...

stupidnewblognotallowingmetosigninbecausetheychangedeverythingihateyou.

Tell me about it.

auntcp said...

It reminds me of my aunt's classroom. She's a sixth grade science teacher.

awokennightmare said...

ew. that is... (how do i put it?...) just wrong. oh well. it's not like it's the end of the world.

lostangel said...

bring back the black please...the greenish color is kinda depressing....

shanagdi said...

It made me think of the SNL sketch:

DEEP THOUGHTS by Jack Handey

I hope if dogs ever take over the world, and they choose a king, they don't just go by size, because I bet there are some chihuahuas with some good ideas.

(I thought you might like this one!!)

Under Saturns Shadow said...

hmm it could be worse.. it could be yellow. like bright yellow. or the color you get when you mix yellow and black.

but I agree with someone above, it makes me think of vomit as well.

[mandy] said...

It's jade. Colored.
But sooooo not you.

Pookha said...

The template is painful. But, I should talk . . .

L3Tthem3ATcAkE said...

wow.

~*JustAFool*~ said...

interesting...i can already hear the yoga music in the background haha

NatalyFancyKetchup said...

Well at least it's not a Barney background....and now i will be karate chopped by a mob of Barney lovers. Hooray.

AXK said...

its OKAAAY, it isn't that baddd. its quite funky. hurry with the blaqk audio album!!

dark_flame said...

uhm...
i don´t like it -.-
more important: du YOU really like it? if you like it it´s ok... and it could be worse ^^

Pyrophoenix said...

I know you'll kick my ass next time you'll see me but let's face it...It's gay! (Have nothing against but looks like the Queers came to your blog and throw the black and pink out of the window paint in light green-kaki and put some biologic flowers macro shot)

Get some professional help! Gavin won't make billboard hit music but he does great website.

More seriously, now you know the base of how to modify your blog source with this template...But if Gavin doesn't have time to do it. I can find some spare and do something in the next days who will be more catchy and "Jadesque".

This is my advise and how I'll se your blog.

Electro-dark as webpage background. If you take it related to the actual website of BA pink-violet as blog background. If not go more for a night-blue to make it more nocturnal. Text should be definitly white or any color negative to the background. From up to down:

- Title (If you insist with the flowers picture...I'll be more electro than biologic ones. Like a comb jelly style (search Pleurobrachia pileus) in macro)

- Content square: The part that you put down with your Beatles songs

- Left part - Blog (Large enough to see Smith video)
- Right part - About me
- Right part - MP3 player (Easy to configure...Without nuclear mushroom from your laptop)
- Right part - Archive

I can make something like this and send the source. Just give me a "k"

Julia said...

well, I did not like any of this templates they have to choose, so, I got this same template you pick and did a customization.
You have to understand a little of xml do do it, and I spend 2 weeks trying, but I did it. :3 Don't you have a nerd friend to help you with it?^^

vanessafrombrazil said...

WOW!!!
I really liked before.But that's Ok hun because the important thing here is YOU...
AFI/XXX 4ever

NoirJet said...

Being l'Inquisition of computer graphism that I am... The green reminds me of sick people in hospitals. Eek.
Your wood-shed is waiting for you.

Frogger Bint said...

At least it's relatively Jade coloured...I'm still on the old version >.> don't have the balls to change it.

thebodybreaks said...

Damn, Jade. It's so... line-y. Care to share what exactly happened?

morrowkitty said...

It's not that bad...but somehow mine didn't change when I had to upgrade....sorry

^_^

~mandy~ said...

no, sorry but the old style was much better

Shy Girls Win said...

Jade, I was wondering. Do you ever read your comments you get? Or do you just scim through them?

Shy Girls Win said...

Whoops..

*Scan through them.


p.s please come to Long Island for a show. Please? I am dying. =P

m said...

I am speechless about this new look.

BUT...YAY for the 3 new Blaqk Audio songs, I really can not wait for the release of a c.d.
(We would also really appreciate a Blaqk Audio widget. 'T would be wicked cool.)

I agree, the new sign-in whatevers are horrible. I miss the old blogger.
:[

brenna! said...

You look better in black.

Jessi said...

Yeah it's pretty ugly. It's like flowers and bacteria had a child and it vomited on to your site.

Lmao. I crack myself up.

Katie said...

green flowers....
i mean, i love the color green and all...
but the flowers and that green is just eww.

Guillotine Groupie said...

Uh, yeah... when I first saw the new template, I kinda freaked (and for a second I thought that you had deleted your blog and some little 8-year-old girl decided to create a blog at shyboyswin.blogspot.com, but then I realized that wasn't too likely).

For some reason, it reminds me of Bambi (you know, the part where Bambi and his girlfriend are little kids and are skipping around in the meadow and running into skunks and rabbits?). Do you like Bambi?

Goodbye, Sally said...

It reminds me of that vomit green carpet all the high schools have.
Isn't there a better one?


Blaqk Audio news is wonderful to hear!

AFIForever21 said...

Jade, is it true that you make a mental checklist of all the fans you greeted before the conclusion of a meet and greet?

p.s I agree with that "Shy Girls Win" Person, Come to Long Island please!

Best thing in town. said...

what the hell? those colors are scary.

lukedenning said...

Ileana said...

It's a little weird...dont know if it goes with you or not, maybe you like it...but i liked the old, regular, black one...i have the same one on my dumb blog. It's more simple too...has less links and cunfusing things.

It's in the Blood said...

Jade, i love you, but seriously, the layout looks like mold. it really does.

Mrs Dan Radcliffe said...
