I’m looking for some feedback to see if my mind/eyes are playing tricks. The title of this site is “Sometimes You Break A Clarinet” and I’m wondering if the font for the title looks pixelated.
I think it does look a bit pixelated but I’m not sure if that’s just my eyes playing tricks on me or my mind being a little OCD. If you think the image looks pixelated, advice on how to improve it would be appreciated.

Ubuntu 12.10, it doesn’t look too pixelated, though it’s clearer when I zoom. What font are you using for that?
I really like the hover effect in the menu (blog moving), but that font feels a bit… inconsistent in size. (Where if that is the effect you’re going for, you’re good! =)
The font in the title is League Gothic
I’m thinking of switching the title font to Junction
The font in the menu is Londrina. I put this design aside for a few weeks and now I’m not sure I like Londrina for the menu, my mind is going back and forth.
Londrina is too… playful for my tastes. But that’s my personal tastes, and nothing else =)
Of the other two, I prefer League Gothic, though the n/u balance is quite neat in Junction.
Maybe instead of picture use font-face, and then perhaps the picture as a backup plan?
Neither of the fonts look pixelated at all on a Retina screen, but the title image does. :) Just a detail, but you might want to make that image higher res.
I’m with howlermiller. The font looks nice and crisp (Windows 7 PC / iPad 3), but the dropshadows (?!) and/or edges in the image look smudgy.
I’m not sure what drop shadow you’re referring to Marco. I don’t think there is any.
I did have a 3D box transition for the links but I’ve decided against that, in favor of the simpler colour change on hover method.
The issue you’re having is due to poor hinting.
What does “poor hinting” mean? How do I fix that?
