This actually looks rather nice, although, a bit too much spacing for my tastes. It was forcing my list of feeds and categories way off the bottom of the page, so I adjusted the padding for the feeds from 12px to 2px and changed the feed icons from 25px to 14px and set the padding to 0.

Good job on the theme. Did you design it for the 3-column view or combined feed display? I have two comments: the second "menu" with select looks a little "off" and it would be nice to have custom icons for the article_toolbar plugin. Other than those two things you did a good job. Yours and grauer_skin are my two favorites. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing.

Here's a screen shot of mine, with the spacing modifications that made.

Dude, you should apply for a Microsoft design job.

I mean, you took Metro and made it even uglier! They'll shower you with money in Redmond!

J'ou talkin' to me?

If so, I didn't make it. I just have it as an available them on my system.

That said, I'd love to be showered with money by Microsoft, or anyone else. And I wouldn't even care what people that of my designs. My Scrooge McDuck piles of money would comfort me and help me sleep better at night. And during the day, I'd rake all the money into giant piles, like leaves in the fall. Just to jump in it as a form of entertainment.
