B-Town Boyz Redesign

I've been throwing this idea around for a while and I'm interested to hear what you all think. I'm going to start re-designing the B-Town Boyz blog site. Not a complete re-design, but just an overhaul. I like the original design, but it's getting old and tired. Plus, I've been reading a book called "CSS Mastery" which has really given me some great ideas to add to the site. (If you don't know, CSS is a way to program styles, such as layout, tables, pics, etc..., into web pages and do some really neat things. CSS basically extends HTML from a strictly design point-of-view. If you've ever seen the back-end of Blogger, the whole set-up is purely CSS based.) Anyway, I think I'm going to start working on the updated site fairly soon, between work, sleep, and Halo.

Please give me some suggestions as to what you would all like to see. This is OUR blog and I really want input from everybody. If you don't know what you want, at least let me know what you like and don't like about the current blog. Let me know if you like the current layout (main content on the left and sidebar on the right) and what you think about the colors, logos, etc.

I already have a few changes in mind. First of all, I'm going to fix the bug that forces the right sidebar to jump to the bottom of the main content section if someone posts a video over 400 pixels wide. And I'd also like to change the link and post graphics (the arrows to the left of the link text and the arrowhead to the left of the post titles).

That's about it for now, I'll keep everyone updated with the progress and hopefully we'll have it ready to go by January. Be sure to post your suggestions and comments so I have somewhere to start from. Thanks.

Boobs... I think we want more boobs. I think the left side of the site is kind of empty and we could put boobs there. Seriously the left side could use some content, or maybe make the section with the posts wider. Boobs.
