Thanks, yet again

…to…well, to so many of you. Haven’t even gotten started on the thank-you notes yet, but in the meantime, words can’t even begin to express my gratitude to my friend Chris Muir, who did the perfect illo of Christiana above. Joe, Jim, Chris P, all of you, well…like I seem to keep saying lately, words fail me.

And before any of you even think about complaining about all the purple, all I’m gonna say is this: she liked purple, awright? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Actually, fellas, if one is willing to learn to like purple for a woman’s sake, I think according to the official rulebook it means you’re pretty much the opposite of Teh Ghey.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  2. I’m so glad that you posted the illo, Mike. It’s fabulous.

  3. Not only do I like the new look, purple and all, but the weird black line that used to run down the middle of the display is gone now, and the page looks flawless.

  4. Glad to hear it, T. It’s actually one of the simplest layouts I’ve done for the site ever, with no HTML tables, and a minimum of CSS trickery too. Over the years I’ve come to realize that simple is usually best, and in more contexts than just website design, too.

    Oh, and as for the purple…she liked pink a lot too. But I just wasn’t prepared to go quite THAT far. Official Tough Chick she most certainly was, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t have her girly side too. ๐Ÿ˜€

    But know what? I’d turn the entire site and the rest of the blighted intarweb entire into the godawfulest purplety-pink nightmare you ever dreamed of, if only I could…well, you all know what I mean already, I’m sure; no need to even complete that sentence.

  5. Purple is the color of royalty, connotes luxury, wealth, and sophistication. The Egyptian queen Cleopatra loved purple.

    In the psychology of color, purple is said to represent one who is creative, individualistic, and original. As well, feminine and romantic.

    Sound about right?

    The illo is beautiful and the site looks great.

  6. Mike forgot to mention that Chris did several other illos, too, but most of the gang liked this one best (and not just because it’s Mike’s favorite).

    As for the purple, well … Al’s French cuffs pretty much proved it’s right next to impossible to gheyify this place – especially now with such a hot babe in our masthead. ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Hey, if my 61 Galaxie lowrider wasn’t flat black–if I could afford real paint–it’d be royal Pasha’s Pantaloons (Midas Muffler) purple with lavender & white lace scallops. Always felt that way about that car. It just wants purple paint. And the Galaxie wants what the Galaxie wants. Nothing wrong with purple.

  8. Mike,
    You have been in our thoughts and if we were the prayin type, you’d be in those too…
    I will keep my ear to the train tracks to listen for the next time y’all are headed to the big city for a gig at Rodeo. Hopefully, we will get a chance to hang a bit.
    Much love from the Serpicos,

  9. *Hey*.

    My fuckin’ Sportster was purple, alright? (And who cares if it ain’t?) I had it painted on purpose because it’s my favorite color. I handed the guy a swatch of Lee Filters #181 (“Congo Blue”) and told him, “That’s the color. Don’t miss.” He didn’t, and it was just right.

    Personally, I don’t call this color “purple”. (It’s “magenta” to me.) But it don’t mean nothin’. If The Lady had liked yellow & green diagonal stripes and Mike wanted it that way, it’d be just fine with me.

    You go, mate.
