Facelifting Fog


Hold up. If you’re looking at your screen right now wondering “who took a dump on my favorite blog EVR?”, well, don’t – Lifting Fog is just undergoing a bit of cosmetic surgery. Fresh off a WordPress “Upgrade” frenzy, we’ll be under the knife for the next few days as I attempt (armed with vast stores of COMS W1004 – Introduction to Computer Programming in Java knowledge) to beautify the site. Quaint worked for us, sure, but couple an expanding readership with a pair of swollen egos and it was only a matter of time before we kicked this shit into hyper-drive. Punch it, Chewie! Expect new colors and graphics – hell, maybe interactive flash animations! – to supplement what was already at least the second-best Fog/Page-related web experience available. Visibility is improving.

UPDATE #1: Photoshop Maestro DJ Steve has designed a truly kick-ass banner for the site. Part Lion King poster, part church pamphlet, the new graphic certainly grabs the eye more than the previous placeholder and, I think, really captures the essence of Lifting Fog: over-the-top melodrama.

UPDATE #2: Lifting Fog is operating in a post-Labor Day world, so we thought it would be best to doff our white robes and slip into something more seasonally appropriate. “Dusklight gray” (Editor’s note: this is not a real color) seems to suit us.

Any suggestions? Ways we could organize the site better? Drop us a line in the comments section below!

    What I don’t know about Java programming could fit in a stadium, but don’t hesitate to get in touch if I can help with anything else (CSS, WordPress, etc.).

    Have fun with the remake! *coughcough*

    Because we’re tough, brute men we’re going to try our hand first and see what we can’t come up with… but don’t be surprised if we take you up on that offer sooner than we’d like. Thanks for the hand!

  3. DJ Steve Says:

    I think the background would do better if it were a darker color

  4. Henning Says:

    Agreed. Reading up on CSS as we speak.

  5. JES Says:

    Oooooh: pretty, pretty! Lookin’ good, guys…

    So… when do the electricians leave, so you can turn on the lights?

    The circuit breaker has been located. Now we’re just going to flip switches – real trial and error-like – to see what might bring us some illumination.
