I find the choice of font for the h1 and h2 content to be ametureish. It just doesn’t look good to my eye. It’s also a bit hard to read because of it’s ultra compressed weight. Please fix it. Thanks.

Subjective opinion. I might change it, I might not. Enjoy.

P.S. - Worst butchering of “amateurish” I’ve ever seen.

The things you pwn end up pwning you.

Okay then.

I’m not the best speller.

Nothing is so perfect that it can’t be complained about.

IMO the H1/H2 font is a free implementation of the Trade/Franklin/News Gothic font family used in the Star Wars crawls and subtitles. While I’m also not entirely sure it’s a great choice for general-purpose web design, I think there’s an aesthetic to it that actually matches the site’s reason for existing, which shouldn’t be easily discounted.

Jay–feel free to use the fonts from my project if you want to embrace that aesthetic even more, but with the warning that there’s such thing as going too far.
