Getting serious

You read it right - FCN is getting serious. We're not just a motley collection of bad students wasting precious time on an obscure blog. Okay, well, we are, but that's not the point. The point is that FCN is moving up in the world, and we want to show that by leaving behind the artsy-pants layouts and going for something credible - a professional, unified black and white design that my uncle set up for us.

FCN is looking for a consistent visual theme, something that's memorable. We want people to be able to look at our blog from across the room and say: "Oh, that's FCN. You actually read that stuff?"

This unified visual theme is just a stepping stone to something big in FCN's future. We can't tell you what it is yet, because then you wouldn't be curious about it and we'd lose all the shock value. But suffice it to say that it's really, really big - probably the biggest thing in FCN history since we resolved to stop lying and cheating.

Let us know what you think of the new look. If you find it an eyesore, we won't be offended. Uncle Wally's labor comes cheap.

Update: Thanks Hannah and anon (whose email was as detailed as it was criticizing). We softened the image a little through less pronounced and concentrated colors (i.e. we added water to FCN). Wally is dutifully offended.

Wow, you guys sure are prolific for never getting any comments. Just wanted to voice my support for what you guys do here. I read you every day and have even linked to you quite a few times from my blog. Although I don't comment, you can be sure I'm always there, watching...
