Ask Ardeth

I used screen capture for this post.

Time to dig into the fang mail for another batch of emails from beyond the grave. Welcome to an overdue issue of "Ask-Ardeth" Where anything that can be thought of to ask will be answered by my horror film Heavy Metal Goddess alter ego Ardeth Blood.

Seems I need to get out of my coffin and onto my soap box and do some more screaming.  I can feel the rumblings starting, it's been at lest 6 months since I did any wrestling reviews, and a year since I did them with any effort and let's face it, closer to 15 months since I gave a dren.

But it was pointed out to me about my comment on the new colours of Impact-TNA wrestling.  I made a comment about not caring for the colours and that's why I won't use the new logo. 

Right.  Well, I got a bit of a lashing for the fact my blog has the same shade of blue when I hightlight things, and my print is white. {which I was doing before them by the by} When put together I have the same two colours that Impact-TNA are currently changed to.  It was also dumped on me about how I have a widget on my blog's sidebar with the logo. The widget, was originally black and red when I signed up for it, and fit perfect with my blog.
This was lovingly with molasses pointed out to me by a 15 year old kid.  One of my brother in law's kids.(and I hate it when a kid is smarter then I am)  So here I am addressing the issue (yes I already had the conversation with the teen but he won't be happy with me till I put it in print)

Well, yes, at the current moment I do have white type and blue hightlights.  Only because after many hit and misses, those were the best for the shade of crimson I want for my blog.  My last blog was a grey and worked better with certain colours, and my wrestling blog is a black which works better with a red hightlight.  Who knows what my next blog will look like?  Just depends on my gimmick.

BUT, whenever I see the blue and white that TNA is currently sporting,  I can't help but think of WWE's Smackdown.

And with these two shows airing two nights in a row to each other, it makes it a bit of a confusion as to whom you're settling into watch.

I think TNA-Impact choosing to go the solid blue and white logo route was just a bad move.   There were so many other colour combos out there.  Personally, I think they should have either kept the red or the black and mixed it with something else. But that's just me.

That's all the time we have for this one, come back around and see what other gobs of wisdom Ardeth Blood will dish out and serve to her fiends.
