New Alias

Okay, I am done- I am done fiddling with the layout. I love it! I love the red, I love the greeny-blue, I love the black! I think it looks very professional and sharp- but perhaps I am biased.

I know some of you have commented on the white text against the black background. I do agree that it can be distracting at times, but it just looks so good! I can't help it. If it helps- try highlighting the post with your mouse, this will reverse the text to black and the background to white.

How about that new banner?? I would like to say thank you to All Alias for the great icon pictures. There are some great ones.

All right, enough of the fluff stuff, back to the dirt!

PS. I've got music coming to the blog soon! I think a little Alias tune playin' when you open the page would be Supa Swank!

honestly, i think it is AMAZING!!! It looks so sharp and neat, i love it. Nice work.

Kiki said...

Thanks Dark or should I be calling you UD? Haha. I love it too. Its so much better than the old blue and gray one. We've moved up in the world, time for something updated, fun and funky.

Dark Alias said...

hehe, yup, thats a good idea, change is good. The old blue and gray was like "blah" and now this new black one is like "BAM!!"

RUDY said...

Love the banner!!! But how did you post it?

Amy said...

Ooo music!! Ill be on the blog all day long!

Kiki said...

Banners are fun, but a pain in the backside. I found this great site that has these picture icons for Alias. I cut and pasted a bunch of the photos into a Paint document and made a banner. Then I uploaded the banner to photobucket. I got the URL code from photobucket and inserted it into my template on the blog. Pheww! I made a few, but this one was my fav. I will post the site I found the photos as soon as I can find it! I googled, and remember the exact website. It's called All Alias.

RUDY said...

Thanks so much!

Kiki said...

Rudy, I didn't know you had a GG blog! Awesome!

Amy said...

Hey Ive had that site bookmarked for the longest time! The icons are so creative and cute. Heres the site:

RUDY said...

Oh, yeah. I've had it for awhile. And I took your advice and made a banner from icons. Check it out!

Dark Alias said...

haha!! I LOVE THIS SONG!! AC/DC is hecka awsome!! And I love the scene this song goes to.."What was wrong with the black one?!?" awsome GS, good job.

Kiki said...

Thanks Dark! I really wanted Cold Hard Bitch from the scene of Syd running through Shanghi, but they didn't have it. This will do. I will change it up with a couple of oldies too. Fun, huh?

Dark Alias said...

yes, very much, i'm writing a code right now for a drop down menu for music, i'll pass it along to you when its done.
AWSOME!!

Tammy said...

*Dancing to our Alias tune*

I'm back!!! :-D

I'm almost caught up with the previous topics so if you'd like to see my thoughts there please check them out! I already posted this but thanks for all the love and congrats for the t-shirt contest while I was gone! :-D

I love the black background and am not having trouble reading the white text. I think the other colors are great too. However I think the banner should have more Vaughn! You just can’t have enough Vaughn! I love the music!!! It took me by surprise though! I was like “since when did the blog start singing to me”!?! I love it! *continues to dance*

Tammy said...

OK - I'm jealous - why isn't the blog singing to me?! I see the little player button and all, but nothing happens! Bummer!!! Any ideas?

Dark Alias said...

tammy, it could be a number of things. Make sure that your speakers are on and the volume isn't on 'mute' or all the way down. Sometimes its the browser, what are you running on? Or your sound card settings may need some tweeking. hope that helps

Dark Alias said...

lhaaheim, is today your birthday? I ask because on my message board it says today is your birthday, so if it is your birthday HAPPY B-day, if not, oh well.

Darkalias

lhaaheim said...

Yes today is my Birthday, thank you for noticing! :-D However, see what I posted in the "Drum roll please..." article. I am now 20 and it’s a sad day for me.

~Liz

srg-alias said...

aw, happy belated bday Liz! GS that site looks great, well done. Did you take the song off though? I tried to load the blog yesterday and it hung (on my Mac at work), I think it might have been because of the song. :-\ The blog is loading great for me today at home on my PC but no song, so I was just curious.

Hey all -- I check out this space regularly and have a question: (First a little background: I got into Alias late ---like Sept. 2005 was my first experience -- needing something exciting to watch while on the treadmill -- I was hooked the moment Syd flipped the chair onto that Asian dentist dude!) Anyway -- I am so sad with the show being over and I'm wondering do any of you feel like...empty...I swear I listened to sad Alias tunes (like Have a Little Faith in Me and I wanna go home --and the flood) over and over and over the other day -- I couldn't stop-- I feel like it is a sickness. I am getting more obsessed than when the show was on! Help!! Any suggestions? (i'm rewatching season 1 (only one I own) and have started in on the books) Is there any hope for me?

Kiki said...

Anon- I know what you are going through. I reached a point of complete and utter obsession. I get nostalgic for the music and the old episodes- I used to watch every night, over and over. I found a creative outlet (this blog) to help me ween away from the DVD's. I started looking into other parts of the show- the literary part, and started writing about it. I still love the show, and spend a lot of time on the blog- but I'm not obsessed anymore- its just a hobby now. I think coming here and focusing on different things helps fill the void.

Kiki said...

Liz- Did you see that you won the T-shirt contest?

Dark Alias said...

anon, same here. But for me I don't really have time to morn of the loss but things that I do are watching an episode everyonce in a while and reading the books. So you're not alone.

oh, i cracked that cypher text. it reads "Alias Rules And ABC Sucks." I agree.

lhaaheim said...

Yup! :-D I posted in that topic and the ones above it as well! :-D

Kiki said...

If you are having music issues- 1. You don't have to press the button to hear the music, it plays automatically when the site is opened. It's on a loop and will continue to play. I might try an easier system for posting the music. Right now, I think it's the videos that screw it up.

lhaaheim said...

GS, the video is likely the problem since I have never been able to see it but I didn't care to mention it since I could hear the music and that's plenty for me! :-)
