The site redesign stinks. I used to be able to come to lawrence.com and get local information very easily. Now your site is taken over by the local music scene, and I have to dig around to find something other than music related crap. And it's ugly too. Very cluttered, disorganized. This was a step back.

I was just listening to your Appleseed Cast flash radio station and I just had to say: Lawrence.com rocks! It's strange, really strange, to see a newspaper-sponsered web site to have any substance or style beyond the newspaper itself. So that by itself would make lawrence.com great. Far better is the fact that lawrence.com blows pretty much every city guide away with your writing, relevance and style. You're providing an educated, melodious voice to your city- a voice taht doesn't pull punches. The writing is excellent, the multimedia is strong, the community is engaged, the stories seem pertienet and valuable and each page has relevance, options, and entertainment. EVERY decision you've seemed to make feels like the right one, fromthe design to the interface, the style to the woredse. Even the little flash player works beautifully. (Say, that's not open source is it? I need on for my personal site now!)
Excellent work. Keep it up.

Dear Fellas,

Clearly we have a difference in opinion. Let's just clear this up, okay? First, let's just point ou the fact that we're awesome, which corresponds to Michael's assertion that we rock.

Michael- 1/ Bruce- 0

Secondly, Michael uses words like "melodious" and "engaged," while Bruce uses words like "stinks" and "crap." Sorry, fancy-pants.

Michael- 1/ Bruce- 1

Lastly, MIchael is from New York City. As we know, New Yorkers are smarter and nicer than other people. They pull together when their world is crashing down around them. They represent the resiliency of the human spirit, while the rest of us represent the buffet line at Shoney's. Sorry Bruce, but human spirit beats Shoney's every time.

Final Score:

Michael- 2/ Bruce- 1

"Top Ghosty-Related Correction" Wayne Coyne only sang on one Ghosty track. Our intrepid boy reporter also tells us that Andrew Conner of Ghosty will not, in fact, be featured on "Christmas on Mars." The track he sang on is a Christmas song called "A Chance for Christmas," and it's on the "Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell" EP to be released in the future. "Christmas on Mars" will be released in the more distant future. Rocket cars will be released in the still more distant future, as will food that comes in pill form and dog-walking "conveyor" belts. Wayne, stop this crazy thing!
