sophistifunk, aristocats

Dear readers, meet my new header.
If you'll allow me a moment to explain, dissect and celebrate it...
I decided after the trippy, crazy theme of my last header, I would take a more sophisticated (cough, cough) approach. I'll walk you through it.
Ah, ha, hush that fuss, everybody move to the back of the bus, is, of course, from Outkast's "Rosa Parks", a song I've been digging lately.
Swift lippin', ego trippin' and body snatchin' is a reference to Parliament's "Dr. Funkenstein", as is the Bootsy Collins picture in the lower left hand corner.
Prince and his cheeky facial expression can be found in the lower right hand corner. In between these two sexy men is a vintage 60's ads telling guys, if you join the army, you ain't gettin any.

Upper right hand corner is a picture of Alex Turner and Jamie Cook from the Arctic Monkeys. This picture is from the September 30th concert that I actually attended (please don't think I'm bragging...oh, wait, nevermind, I am). In the upper left hand corner is Fiona Apple, looking sexy. And speaking of sexy, this picture of Mick, Anita Pallenberg and Keith warms my heart.
My new subtitle (is that what it's called?) is "Oh baby, I'm wanting to do you a swap...I'll give you anything, yeah, in return for them noises you've got", from the Arctic Monkeys song "Wavin Bye to the Bus or the Train", which I have been listening to often due to the extreme sexiness of Alex Turner being aggressive.
So, thoughts?
Preferred my old header? Suggestions for my next one?
P.S.
On a request from anonymous, one last look, a farewell, if you will, to my old header, with the "Most everyone here is mad!" theme....

It was a beauty, but for the amount of times a day I visit my own blog (like 2343825430845), I needed to switch it up

I like the new header. The other one was lovely as well, but there is something eternally classic about black and white--still bold and graphic too.

I LOOVED the old one. I think this one is pretty cool too, but I wish I could have a last look at the old one...I don't even remember what was on it now. I loved the pic of the olsen... I'd just like to see the old header one last time to examine the pics one last time

I can finish the lyric your post is titled with. "...distinguished dog, clean up your act, pull up your pants, ladies and gents, please act like you got some sense." Man, I forgot how much I like Outkast.

p.s.- I like the new header better.
