Bowling Ball Brain

I was looking at Jesse Gardner’s site again today. I like the layout and I think it renders fairly well in most browsers. He has these creepy eyes that pop-up in a window. I’m not sure what they mean, but I have my ideas. The JavaScript he uses automatically closes that window a few seconds after the main document loads, and I think that has interesting possibilities.
What if there was a headline or image that really caught your eye and then faded away. You could leave a clean simple link on your pages that only had text that says “Tell me more about that thing I saw again…”
I’ll have to think about that. I’m not sure if there’s a decent market for local links, but I keep thinking about it. What could set it apart and make it better than the run of the mill banners?
I was looking to see when he last updated the site. He’s working on the new site, and I haven’t heard from him in a while. It’s been a while since he explained the name of the site, Plastic Mind. Seems it came from a realization he had in college while drawing a “blonde-haired bowling-ball”.
And I thought grasshopper brain might be a problem…
