I've watched it about twelve times.
Great to see activity in Camp Mitchell, looking forward to the new record! Thanks DiS for the interview.
-- including the frankly limp Joni Mitchell cover, dubious Bon Iver collabo and percussion-less snoozefest of 'Enough Thunder' (that's 50% of the EP right there! are the other tracks that good?!) -- garnered a better rating than the, at times, brilliant LP.
My one caveat would be: don't change things too much! In terms of content (i.e news, features, reviews) DiS actually functions very well. Imo what the site really needs is a CSS/visual overhaul by a group of talented designers.
I've seen some talk about changing to a multimedia style tumblelog, and yes while some sites do that format very well, they lack the original journalism which makes DiS such a quality resource.
So, imo, here are some things I'd like to see change (ideally) at DiS:
i) a CSS/design ovehaul to bring the site into the new decade, while retaining its overall visual stye and vibe. (This is the most important part!)
ii) removal of some of the site's extraneous features (and presumably sluggish code). Does the directory really offer any usefulness? Gigs section?
iii) some additional new features would be grand, such as an improved photo gallery slider (all the really great photography you have is kind of wasted here), a mobile friendly site format (look at the avclub.com's mobile site on an iPhone for great/simple functionality!), etc.
Those are my thoughts for now :) good luck with the rejig.
