Why? Many reasons. ...Well, more like 3 reasons.
1) "Mario is Stoned" doesn't look good on resumes. Heck, it doesn't look good anywhere. The average highschooler asks if I'm "high" every time they visit the site. And yet again, I DON'T DO DRUGS.
2) I'm planning on submitting the site to the Marin County Fair, and I don't think "Mario is Stoned" will really be a good message to shout out on every Awards list throughout the whole fair. Although I've come to dislike the competition (I lost Best of Show to a clip-art-infested page with unorganized lists of NASA data), I still feel like winning a little money for my site. Maybe it'll go towards, uh, new MIDI stuff. Yeah.
3) Like any meme on the internet, I've sort of outgrown the Animutation-infested secret life of Mario. Yes, the little picture of Mario pulling on *something* is funny, and I've kept it here for your enjoyment.
For the people that actually visit my site to access the content and read the journal (rather than, uh, pointing and laughing at the title of the site all day), rest assured that nothing else on the site will change. I haven't added anything new or taken anything old away (yeah, yeah, except the rotating Mario heads).
So enjoy the new layout (I think it's freakin' sweet - and it only took a few hours) and hope that I succeed in life now that I seem a bit more professional...
Oh, and yes, those are MY eyes staring you down. Muahahaha.
