Everyone's a critic

Regarding my call for feedback on my new blog design the other day:

I took a peek.
You asked, so I'll tell you.
It's great except the lettering on the "shellen.com"
title at the top looks kind of fuzzy and weak.
I know! It looks like it was done on an Etch-a-Sketch!
I think a different font would be better.

Just my opinion.
Otherwise, very impressive.

Love you.
Mom

She's not wrong (or alone in her distaste) the logo has been messed up for about 7 years. It's a mis-use of Kottke's Silkscreen font that was meant for small navigational areas where a bitmap would be best. What am I doing wrong? I'm aliasing it or anti-aliasing... wait, I can't decide if I'm pro or anti-alias. Either way it looks horrible the other way too. I hereby promise a new logo design for 2008. My mother and Biz Stone will be pleased and really that's all anyone can ask for in this crazy world.
