Nice, i like it. It was a bit slow to load for me though. Maybe you could look in to that. Lose the validator badges!! If you really must then just have a text link in there. This has got potential. You need to think about how you can optimise the speed if it going to be good in the long run. See here: Website Speed Test

I suspected it was going to take a while to load. And yes, I know the v-badges are pretty dorky. They're gone. The bg image includes the header image. I'll likely take it off and include it separately and squeeze the parchment down to 60 or 70 jpg compression. Even at 80 it's still 160K.
I'm also looking for an analog clock to continue the 'steampunk' theme I'm going for. Know of any good ones?

I like it - potential it does have. Indeed it does...looks very nice.
Loading was not even an issue. Maybe you worked on page speed already or maybe I just have a modern connection. However if people out there say its slow...then it must be slow.
Keep going and the clock idea discussed above is an idea...
DynamicDrive does have interesting scripts
