Website Facelift Stage 1 Complete

With the latest issue published, available for sale and off my mind, it was time to turn my attention to a long-standing project: a facelift for our soon-to-be-20-year-old (!) website.
Unfairly neglected while I was spending most of my free time on the mag and blog, the website's homepage had become needlessly cluttered while the entire site didn't jibe with the brand we were driving home elsewhere.

That's marketing speak for "we were using different logos".
After a few hours spent tinkering over the last couple weeks the facelift was launched yesterday afternoon complete with a new Nikkatsu review – for FEMALE TEACHER: DIRTY AFTERNOON – courtesy of longtime contributor Crites. 
Readers of the mag and blog will recall that we lost Tom about a year ago, but I'll continue to showcase some of the work he contributed before his death. And Nikkatsu fans should take note that next month will be "Nikkatsu November" as we feature additional reviews of the series on the heels of David Zuzelo's article in the new issue.
As for the website, tweaking continues as the banner ads on most inside pages have disappeared (doh!), I had to delete the home page search function in order to get the page to load, and I have some review/article housecleaning to do.

But look for new content and continued improvements in the coming weeks and months.
