I would lower the opacity on the type in the background.
less is more and subtleties really send good design into great design and right now i feel the type in the back is fighting for attention to much and sometimes winning when the visitor should be focused more on the content of your site.
other than that,
i dig. its not "2.0" and that gets a big thumbs up from me :)
I also like the handwritten type stuff in the background, but it’s kind of a "tweener" stage right now. I think making even more of it but then lowering the intensity of it would be cool. Then it becomes more of a texture, which is really cool. Right now my eye wants to go read that stuff, which is distracting and pulls away from your main content.
