New Site is Up

By | General | 4 Comments

I quietly launched the new JeffFinley.org site. It’s my personal portfolio and blog. After spinning my wheels on trying to design from scratch vs work from a WordPress theme, I ended up going with a theme. I chose Elefolio from WooThemes because not only is the Woo team known for their quality, support, and attention to detail, it featured the Tumblog style blog and easy to update portfolio items.

I also made it a point to track down every blog article I’ve posted since 2006 and archived them here. I used to have a blog called TheWetCat.com during my former Mylkhead days and I’d blogged on Myspace a little too. The only thing I didn’t include were all my hundreds of posts over at GoMediaZine.com. Perhaps I’ll make a list of blog some links to my favorite articles and tutorials. But for now, enjoy my blog, movie reviews, portfolio work, and my new about section which features a comprehensive list of what I’ve got going on these days. Hope you like it!

I designed the new website for Crystal City Clothing. If you aren’t familiar, it’s the clothing line of Amy Carlson and Johnny Whitney (The Blood Brothers and Neon Blonde). They have some really creative designs are everything’s printed on American Apparel (sweat shop free and really comfy). I suggest you check it out and buy some shirts!

The site was designed by us at Go Media. And George from LK Media is hosting it.


Play the Assassin Website Launched

By | General | No Comments

I finally finished the website for Play the Assassin Records. It took forever to finally get all the content up. The backend guy we were working with strung us along for months and I ended up having to populate the website with all it’s content manually. Which, had we known that in the beginning, it would have been up much much sooner.

What is it with programmers? Why is it so difficult to find one that is good AND reliable? Oh well.
