With the side bar being animated on a different timer to the headline banner it is distracting as fuck. The headline banner is charring enough when it switches to the video bits because it stretches so far outside of the website width.|
When it combines with a slight ahead/behind animated side bar it makes me want to punch Bioshock.
Unfortunately my work dictates that I can't block the ads, so please change your entire ad design to annoy me less. Not unreasonable I think.
My own slice of the internet is here: http://www.maulsquad.com - it isn't very good.
