Okay, this critique of your site is coming from a design major, so prepare your brain!

The backgrounds on your page are way too busy and distract from the content of your page. Likewise, the song sample that plays on your intro page is very annoying and gave me the impression that your site would be unpleasant to my senses.

Also, you are direct-linking images and files, a huge Web no-no. This will eat up the bandwidth of the hosts of those repective files. Download those files to your hard drive, then upload them to your site. How would you feel if you put up some huge and wonderful files you made yourself and someone was linking your files to their site, eating up your bandwidth and making for slower page loading at your site?

Another issue I noticed was your fonts. You are using 2 decorative fonts when one would be ideal. Remember that you want contrast in your fonts to create a hierarchy and make it easier on your visitors.

I agree on that one. ;)
