So How Do You Like
the New Upholstery?

I'm back. You might notice we've spruced the place up. (We being me and code sherpa Bill Kennedy, not some smarmy blogger's 'we'.) Besides the warm pumpkiny colours, there are a couple of functional changes that I think should improve your Zoilusian experience. Look to your left, and you'll see that the confusing categorical headings in the sidebar have vanished, replaced by links to the different pages in the site, a changing list of favourite sites (above and beyond the big links page), some current reading and listening (on line and off), the archives, and - of local interest - some picks of the week in Toronto shows.

For those who don't use RSS feeds, there's a fancy new Notify List where you can sign up to be emailed when the site is updated. And we've moved the Toronto Gig Guide to its own designated page for easier use and navigation.

Speaking of which if you're in town and reading this before 8 pm on Tuesday, I urge you to take the plunge on tonight's No Neck Blues Band show. New York free-freak-improv collective NNCK (as they nickname themselves) has its strengths and weaknesses, but within the enchanted walls of the Music Gallery, I suspect they'll be at their most inspired. For a taste of what to expect, check out this video. Hope to see you there.

I definitely need an update, but you don't want to alienate intrepid dinobot users, do you?

it's a mac thing... it has tabs... it's pretty decent. MANY mac users use it.

Mmmmm pumpkin. Having recently relaunched the site for a little university out here in the hinterlands, I have learned to hate Safari, though hating Microsoft is much more comfortable. My money is on Firefox. Tabs are great. How many people use Safari? Is it strictly a Mac thing? Wonderin'

funny, it does work in Safari for me - that's what I use at home. maybe you need a browser update? but we'll check into it.

It does work in my Firefox browser.

Oops. Nothing in your sidebar works for me. In my Safari Browser it just comes off as a list of words that don't link to anything.

Thanks, and Matthew - a links page update will follow soon, and you'll be there then.

Organization is good. I have to admit, your sidebar links previously were too confusing, and now I can find your gig guide without any difficulty. Keep up the good blog work.

I love the new look. It's not hugely different, but it's different enough that it looks more visually appealing. Great job (even if I still don't get to be listed on your links page!).
