IT’S FINALLY HERE.
Making ML a sleek custom setup is a dream I’ve had in my crazed mind for a minute as many of you in the ML inner circle know. Today it has finally become a reality. Boy, was it worth the wait, I still can’t believe this is ML. When HM and I started this little thing in HS, I couldn’t even fathom the idea we’d have an elite design rocking on the site. Hell, I didn’t believe anyone would even read it. Now we have interviews with
top artists, meeting all sorts of amazing industry folk.. and most importantly the most thoro/gully college aged (Buhizzle, you still count right?) writing team. This design is just the icing on the cake, ML is not playing internets. This is the start of something as Buffalo Sabres announcer Rick Jeannerette would say “Good.. Scary Good”.
Two huge thanks have to go out to two fellas that made all of this happen. First, Niklas Rosen who believed in the site as soon as he saw it and gave ML one sexy “brand” identity, check the moo cards! Second (and equally important) GraphicDZNR aka Jesse Dodds blessed ML with a design that without doubt is in the top echelon of music blogs. The dude simply doesn’t know how to say “No”, there wasn’t a feature or design element he wasn’t able to tackle. If there is a rockstar in web stuff it’s this guy. Using either of these guys for your projects you will come out with a winning result. I know this sounds like a cheap/cheesy promo plug, but this is the truth (I’m willing to testify in court!). Don’t think our relationship with these fly design dudes is done, ML will continue to collaborate with both of them in the future many times over, you better believe it.
Now here is a brief technical overview of the Bells & Whistles ML is sporting:
