This blog is moving to a new URL!

Hey guys, thanks a shitload for all the support and pageviews. But before I get too entrenched as "SimplyAwful" I gotta move to a different URL. I've got a few problems with the current name of this blog:

• The name was chosen on the spur of the moment, and while I'm still of the opinion that a lot of the stuff I post here is awful, the name "SimplyAwful" isn't really evoking anything to me, except...

• ...Something Awful. You'd think that I would have made the connection, considering I've been reading Something Awful since late 2000 sometime. I knew I had to change my name when someone gave my blog a video shout out a few months ago and told everyone to visit "somethingawful dot com". That was a good sign that I needed a more unique name.

• If you've been paying attention to a lot of the Famicom carts I post here you'll see the name "Ribbon Black" come up often in some way or another. It's kind of the name I've been using for years in other projects of mine and I really should've just gone with that to begin with.

THE BOTTOM LINE: I'm at now! Please continue to support me there. If nothing else, I made it look a lot nicer than this layout. Thanks again!
