Anyway, I've realized I have an intense loyalty to a two column, left sidebar template, and that quirk, along with the fact that I'm using Blogger, limits my design options significantly. I'm still working out the kinks ("Discuss"/Recent Comments isn't working correctly right now), but I think about 90% of links, feeds, and embedded content are OK. The rest I'll figure out, and this is going to be a work in progress anyway because I'm sure it's one of those things where once you start tooling around it's impossible to stop.
And just to spell out the banner, if it isn't obvious why "the movie experience shouldn't end in the theater":
Film -> Watch -> Think -> Discuss -> Apply
Thanks for your patience, and for reading.
