A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

@revRab: Guten tzag to you, if you can't have 50 degrees F, at least you can have 50 degrees of verticality. Yes this green is eerie in a strangely lighthearted way...like this font too.
I think Faye's shark looks righteously sharkular!

- blue vastly greater Contrast to white background anyhow - myself, I say go for the colors but - easy to read has merit...
