Yeah, this is just a rough-out, trying to see where we could put things.  I was thinking how do we maximize the visuals, because you want to make those as big as possible.  Every blank black space should be there to set off something more interesting.  I am thinking a bigger header, and bigger album art on the reviews.  Like 300x300 or something like that.  Obviously the old reviews will not all be updated, but the new ones will be bigger and grab more attention on the front page.

I like reviews in the middle, they are our bread and butter. Maybe flip editorials and interviews since interviews seem to be updating a bit more regularly and people in the west read left to right.

Yeah, that works.  I would like some way to make the interviews more visual, like a band logo or something.  Logos can be a pain, but it would not be that hard for me to find a logo and put together a graphic if I knew dimensions and had a bit of lead time.

We're going to have to experiment with the stuff for the interviews.

Well, in all seriousness, we would just need to have an image size for a standard, and then give me maybe a week's notice and I would see what I could come up with.

I can do new headers for the different sections, too.  Michel and I will just have to work together so I know what dimensions I am working with.
