When posting a review, please include the theme reviewer list (looks
like it got left off the reply) and start a new thread (subject line).
 I'll include my feed back inline:

I thought at first the angle thing was just me when I looked at this,
glad to know my eyes aren't that crazy yet :-)  Not sure what the idea
was there.  Same with the footer, not sure why there's not something
down there.

When I look at the "Layout Test" post with this theme I see links to
the separate pages.  Was there another part that didn't support
multiple pages?

Although the spacing isn't exactly what I'd necessarily pick, I don't
think it's too crazy.

A few other things I noticed when trying out this theme:

- no comment threading support
- no "home" link any where.  Usually the blog title links back to the
front page (or some times there is a separate home link), but I didn't
see any way to link back to the home page.  Rather frustrating

Keep trying it out, then let's put this all together and we'll get it
back to the theme author.
