For those checking in today or Monday, yes, this is the new look, aside from the masthead image which will stay for another week or two. My design skills are not to mocked. Hear me roar!
(However, I must note that I actually uploaded the new look yesterday, on Saturday. So if this is the first time you're seeing it, you're a slacker. I'm saying this because we all know that insulting one's audience is the key to salvation.)
