Tab love

Say hello to the woman with the bleeding mouth y'all.

Yeah I made this template myself; coding, CSS, blah blah, everything.

And check out the supercoolfantabulous tabs (on top)

It's all about the tab love.

*kisses social life goodbye*

Did you say woman with bleeding mouth? Looks fabulotastic!!! (yep. made up that word!)

* goes back to clicking the tab repeatedly *

Neat. Code looks nice and lightweight, if not particularly standards-compliant. However, you might want to throw your stylesheets into another file -- no point having people download 10K of stylesheet information for every page.

Strider said...

Hey this looks great!

Rohini said...

Awesome! I am terribly jealous.

Vikram H said...

cool creative effort! but why would u wanna put up such a negative image of a woman?? or are u saying that you're portraying the general plight of Indian women here??

Sridhar said...

nicee...
this would have taken a loooong time to perfect... the graphics and the color combo is kewl...

kudos for creating an eye candy

BTW u should change your major to Web designing :P... I have hardly seen any bio student who is this computer savvy..

Gammafunction said...

I love this blog! the swearing,the feminism,the pirates...everything...though not too keen on the new template...reminds me of those old hindi movie posters...the older template was brilliant!

anonymouse said...

I suggest moving the archives dropdown to the top right, right after the tabs.

Otherwise your main column is too narrow, and uses up too much whitespace.

If you disagree, I'll change to reading your blog with lynx so I don't have to deal with it.

awesome site design.

btw, i've been hooked on your blog ever since i read your post on eve-teasing. you and your blog are awesome. cheers!

@ mcgermy: Heh. Those tabs are awesome-o no?


@ Nath: I havent finished my customizations or straightened out the glitches yet. It should be done by the end of this week.

@ Strider: Thank you!

@ Rohini: Dont be! I'll make you one if you want :)

@ Vikram: Errr thanks but I loved the picture, I just liked the way it looked and as far as I can see I dont thinks its negative at all, it's just crazy. :D

@ Sridhar: Ahh surely you jest. Heh.

@ Gammafunction: Thank you, but my favorite color is grey and I love this picture so I *had* to make a template around it.

@ Anonymouse: I wanted the white space around the main blog. And the main column isnt narrow (atleast according to me) because I needed some space for my sidebar widgets (which I havent put up yet).
Either way I'll be working on it all week. I'm sorry you dont like it.

@ East of Madagascar: Thank you!

THIS IS AWESOMELICIOUS BRILLIANT, I LOVE THIS PIC and so on :D amazing!!

Szerelem said...

Whoa!!! Am amazed at you template making skills. Really like this one...though goth woman has been my all time fave, bleeding woman is awesome too....

my life.... said...

hey the template is smashing! i love this template:)

shayeri said...

are you on blogger beta? I need to know because the new blogger uses weirdo widgets and all, and they don't make much sense to me.

Love your template though

anonymouse said...

Nah, if it's work in progress ignore my criticism,

Plus, it's your blog and you don't need to apologise about how it looks. If I don't like it, that is my problem.

Silvara said...

Great new look - grey and pink are HOT. It's very you and doesn't detract from your personality at all - it adds to it. I can't believe you did this all yourself - my DEGREE is in IT kinda stuff and I have no clue. The best I can do is copy and paste a template from www.blogskins.com lol - great work :D

anonymouse said...

This should work from lynx

Drops Of Jupiter said...

Hello my dahling, Profuse apologies for being busy all fucking morning..it's been a manic day and it continues to be.

Love the pink, the girlygirlness, and of course..the tabs are too cool for school!

nevermind said...

The second time I'm saying this today- but your previous post was altogether brilliant:-) And it was an absolute pleasure to read every single viewpoint in the debate that followed. And the template's really cool.

nevermind said...

Sorry to be a bother, but if any of your readership lives on this side of the pond and feel strongly about your last post, then they could perhaps donate their old mobile phones here . Cheers.

the wannabe indian punkster said...

@ Yogi: Thank you!

@ Szerelem: Death was my favorite picture too. But I wanted to stay away from black and white for a little bit. [she will be back, though]

=)

@ My life: Thanks!

@ Shayeri: Yes I am on blogger beta. And thanks muchly.

@ Anonymouse: Fair enough. :)

@ Jupe: The tabs are coolio no? Thanks yo!

@ Nevermind: Yay! Youve made my day with your compliment about my previous post! And thank you on the template and the great link. Ill add it to my previous post as a post script.

Artful Badger said...

pretty cool i say :)

Jay Sun said...

Nice...:)

Rohini said...

Really? Would you? Are you already sorry you offered?

Primalsoup said...

Show off!

shayeri said...

oh. then being on Beta, you must be knowing how to use widgets and all. I had this amazing template (self made) and as soon as I chose BBeta, it crashed. *pauses for two minutes and weeps*. now nothing I do will get the damned thing back. any ideas/suggestions?

scudie said...

Nice! :) but the blogroll on a separate tab is so weird..

BIRDSEYEPOTATOROFL! U tll 'em. hw dre dey pblsh sch pctrs.

Sorry.. iwastypingwaytoofastanddecidedtoignoregrammar.

But I see your point. Oh wait.. I meant "I c ur pt".

Oh and what the devil is "gug english"? Have I been caught sleeping again in classes? Damn.. the next thing I know, there is a new bloody language.

But this wind-up is getting old. You can do better mate.

Vijayeta said...

Abso-fucking-lutely AWESOME!!! I TOTALLY LURRRRVE IT :D
And you're simply the bestest when it comes to templates and such like!
Rock on, babe! :D

Vincent said...

Good work. I can't think beyond black on white. I guess something representing the animal kingdom (stuffed or mutated or otherwise) would've been a nice addition too. :)

the wannabe indian punkster said...

@ Artful badger: Thank you!

@ Jay Sun: Thanks!

@ Rohini: Of course! Email me as to what you want and I'll get the ball rolling!

@ Primal: Muahaha.

@ Shayeri: Tsk tsk! I know it must have been hard. Now explain 'crashed' and i'll see if I can help you out.

@ Scudie: Not for me it isnt. :)

@ Rajan: *dies*

@ mcgermy: LOL.

@ Vij: Where.have.you.been.

Hmmm? Hmmmmm?

And thank you sooo much!

@ Vince: I was tired of dead animals. I wanted something pretty and edgy for a change. Hence this template. :)

sureshg said...

Absolutely brilliant! you have great blog here. And You have great style of writing. I am glad I stumbled across your blog.

I am gonna keep coming back to your place!

the wannabe indian punkster said...

@ Suresh G: Thanks!

shayeri said...

Well when I switched to blogger beta, the first thing I saw that my navbar had perched itself right in the MIDDLE of my screen. This had happened when I had made the template, due to faulty coding for navbar placement, but I succeeded in hiding it in my style code. However it came back! And then when I tried to fix it, in the Edit HTML page something like "the XML elements of your template are not valid" or summat of that sort, and my blog disappeared! As in, when I typed the URL all that opened was a blank page. When I swapped to a Blog template. Everything was back to normal.

So yeah, that's the saga of my blog template.

:D

Raindrop said...

Who needs a social life when you can design templates?

Love all your templates, they're super-cool and super-readable!

And give us some background on bleeding mouthed woman. I like to think she's someone straight out of Kill Bill.

Grey matters...:)

That Armchair Philosopher said...

beep.

i'm alive again. and older.

re: template - a tad dreary, methinks. spice it up. that light-pink doesn't go with the grey. maroon, perhaps?

and oi rajan. how i wish i could meet you. hehe

pravin said...

Looks neat! :D

Vulturo said...

Not half bad, exactly. Could have done with a smaller header.

the wannabe indian punkster said...

@ Vulturo: Gosh, thanks. And with respect to the header; I know what you mean, but I did not want to squish or take away anything from the image, so I left the header size as is.
