Wrong usage of name spacing:
You should not name your functions like image_setup, js_head_load  and
theme options like logo_url etc.
http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Review ( 1.1.4 Theme Namespacing)


Sample wrong usage of functions

$latest_post_number = get_option( 'latest_post_number' );
> $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
> $recentpostquery = array('showposts'=>$latest_post_number,
> 'paged'=>$paged, 's'=>$s);
> query_posts($recentpostquery);

If above codes used for pagination where are pages link if not you dont
need this code block. By the way it is better to use function & hook to do
