Yep, I’ve morphed again! This new format is less visually demanding than my last site, and (hopefully) easier to load. The header collage is mine, a mashup of “constituent parts” — pop cultural images and icons that grace our collective psyche (or have special significance to me). See if you can spot them all:

  • Charles Spurgeon
  • Thomas Aquinas
  • Flannery O’Connor
  • Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Embryo
  • Bono
  • Bob Dylan
  • Wilson (from Castaway)
  • G.K. Chesterton
  • Gene Wilder as Dr. Frankenstein
  • Poltergeist girl
  • The Man Who was Thursday
  • Jim Morrison (Mr. Mojo Rising)
  • Edgar Allen Poe
  • Drill sergeant from Full Metal Jacket
  • Ronald Reagan
  • Hypnotic eye
  • C.S. Lewis
  • Jimmy Swaggart
  • Robert DeNiro as Travis Bickle
  • Autumn leafs
  • Thelma and Louise’s suicide
  • Ticket to the Paramount theater
  • Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby
  • Sign supporting Islamic extremism
  • Meriwether Lewis
  • Eve’s hand offering apple
  • Jesus rising from the grave

Yeah, I’ll be tweaking things as I go, adding and subtracting from the sidebar, building a Blogroll, etc. If you’re a reader of this site and encounter some glitch or have a suggestion, please contact me privately. Thanks to Natalie Jost for her hard work and getting things up and running. Happy deCOMPOSING!

    Mike — it looks great! And it loads so much faster and it’s much easier on these 50-year-old eyes. 🙂 Kudos all around.

    Whoa. Did I make a wrong turn somewhere? Where am I? It’ll take a little adjustment, but I’ll get used to it. Love the color and the collage. And as with most things…it’s the content that matters:)

    Love your header. Love it love it love it. Who else would incorporate Full Metal Jacket with Jesus and Bob Dylan?

    I could possibly steal this.

    I like the new look! Much easier on the eyes.
