Behold...The New Look!

Smiling Thel
Welcome to the well-tanned and toned Galaxy Express.

Everything has been redesigned and recoded from the stratosphere up. This has been underway for quite some time and gone through many iterations to reach this point. I wanted the best (and would accept nothing less) for you.

It’s a much leaner site, meaning you should find it loads faster on both your PC and mobile devices. But since the grand ol’ ship Galaxy Express is nothing without you, commenting will also be easier.

After much deliberation, I chose Disqus for the revamped commenting system. You’ll now be able to sign in through various accounts (Twitter, Google, Facebook, etc.); replay directly to other comments (no more cuttin’ and pastin’); display your avatar; list your favorite platypus tricks; and so on.

Oh, and still no ads. In space, no one can hear you scream…about designer shoes at half off if you call before midnight tonight! ;)

So now that the ship has a new warp drive, take it out for a spin and let me know what you think.

Joyfully yours,


P.S. And speaking of comments, don’t worry—all of the wonderful replies you’ve left are fully stored away and imported. It may just take awhile for them to fully populate on the new site. They may be late to the party, but they’ll arrive.

New ones, however, will appear right away. Leave one now and see!
