welcome to new That Grape Juice

Welcome to the new and improved That Grape Juice!


While, I’ll be giving you guys a much more detailed account of what’s to come shortly, let me take this opportunity to introduce you to That Grape Juice’s new resident Assistant Reporter….Trent! By no means your typical run-of-the-mill contributor, Trent – to put it simply – encapsulates everything That Grape Juice has become over the last 2 years – opinionated, reliable, professional, but above all entertaining! He’s a LAMB too, which should be interesting LOL LOL. Check out Trent’s introductory post below!

In the meanwhile, let us know what you think about our hot new design!

Your thoughts?

  2. Juize October 26, 2009

    I’m sorry, but I don’t like the new layout and logo..
    I expected something smashing, but it’s far from that….
    Let’s hope the posts will stay great!

    Very nice! I’m so glad yall took things to the next level. This layout looks 100 times better than the old one. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for TGJ.

  4. Chase October 26, 2009

    Wow Attention Everyone!!!! Sam had several folks go through a several part process interviewing for positions on this blog and DID NOT HAVE THE DECENCY to reach back out and inform those individuals that they made it or didn’t. Best of luck with the site and congrats Trent, I’ve taken my last sip and my cup of TGJ is all gone!!

  6. GtheGreat October 26, 2009

    GREAT JOB SAM! lovin the new look of the site! werk!

  7. Yo October 26, 2009

    Disappointed, I expected something about Kelly Rowland since you have not posted something about the EMI deal. Your previous lay-out was MUCH better.

  8. Jessica October 26, 2009

    Love the new look, Sam!

  9. Minhquan Nguyen October 26, 2009

    Looks good! I like the shiny…

  10. iDrizz October 26, 2009

    It’s ok. Not sure how to digest the removal of the artist bar but i guess it’ll grow on my like a weird fungus or something. I like the different tabs, kudos there. how you changed it so that only the introductory to a story is visible along with the addition of a “Continue Reading” button. Overall, 7/10

  11. ink October 26, 2009

    loves it!

  12. DF October 26, 2009

  17. danny October 26, 2009

    u know i love this site, but i just dont like the site layout no more. the background gives me a headache. i miss the top picture that tgj was known for… the one with rihanna, Chris brown, mariah etc etc. are u gna give us an upgraded one with BEYONCE?

    anywAY, i much prefer the old site better… SAM BRING IT BACK!

  18. hutchence October 26, 2009

    Lamb ur Ass!!!

  19. TGJDRINKAH October 26, 2009

    I actually like the new layout, that banner with all those singers I absolutely can’t stand (Mariah, Chris Brown, Rihanna and Kanye) always put me off whenever I visited here. I’m so glad it’s gone now!! XD

  20. lool October 26, 2009

    I like it :p

  21. whatever October 26, 2009

    i like the splash of colour..nice!!!

  22. me October 26, 2009

    Sorry but i dont like the colour and style the old style is better.

    This new style looks horrible.

  23. ruby October 26, 2009

    nice upgrade and hopefully with a lamb in the house we’ll some balance. 🙂

  24. KOREY October 26, 2009

    ummm….what the hell is this?

    this is supposed to be better?

    basically you took off michael jackson (finally) and added some color. no banner up top.
    this is dumb. try again.

    the “TGJ” brand isn’t what i thought it was gonna be since u were hella hypin’ it up.

    sorry sam…WACK!

  25. Myst October 26, 2009

    THAT’s WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT SAM!! Great work, love it!

  26. KORAL October 26, 2009



    Love Koral

  27. SnijanaFleur October 26, 2009

    I love the upgraded comment section. It’s an easier read and it’s easier to post. I like the colors. Keep up the great work Sam :-).

  28. Truthfully Speaking October 26, 2009

    Sam I LOVE the new site! It looks so much more professional and user friendly than the other site! It is much easier to post comments as well. I cant wait for the things that you have in store for us. TGJ has been one of my favorite blogs for years and I am glad you decided to upgrade. Congrats to you Sam!

  29. Yan October 26, 2009

    Congrats. Lovin’ the new layout…

  30. OB October 26, 2009

    Awwww GO SAMMY!!!

    Love everything you’ve done here….no matter where you decide to take all this you know i’ve got your back 😉



  31. Legend’Nation October 26, 2009

    HATED IT!!!! I’m sorry, i expected something a little more technologically advanced, and urban, media savvy. This new layout feels like a high schooler, or a beginners web design course. Not a good look!
    I absouletly LLLOOOOVVVEEE TGJ, your content, material, perspectives and features, but this layout just doesn’t do it, just being honest. sorry, I still love you guys though!! 😉

  32. Jezz October 26, 2009

    nice….ads all over the place? its cool tho…i dont think anybody was really expecting great things outta you.

  33. Mrs, Battle October 26, 2009

    Wow I’m shocked that there no new layout! lol
    but the new one is just fine for me

  34. Peyton October 26, 2009

    I like it, all the purple and lime green looks awesome.

  35. Malyeh October 26, 2009

    WOW ! I Like It !
    It stays like it was tough – the form – but i like it, it’s fresh !

  36. nat October 26, 2009

    hey sam,

    I like how the comments section looks, but I do not like the background color. Other than that, I would like to commend you on your hard work.

  37. vince October 26, 2009

  38. daznielle October 26, 2009

    To: Sam

    From: Simply Phillip Brown

    Sam, I love the site, esp the Logo!

    Child, you know you can do no wrong! Lol!

  44. Tawny October 27, 2009

    I like how the website is a bit more user friendly. The comments are easier to read and the tabs are cool but I have to say the design (particularly the banner/theme) is lacking something. Not bad though, 6.5/10.

  45. kg October 27, 2009

    Love the graphic designs!

  46. NEXT October 27, 2009

    I expected more and the background gives me a headache

  47. parisian girl October 27, 2009

    yeah!!!i love it!

  48. ThatGrapefruitJuice October 27, 2009

    You can’t please everyone Sam, lol, but overall it seems most folk here like the new layout. For me it’s gonna take a bit of getting used to, but other than that it’s nice. I’m just glad the theme is still purple/green, it would feel like a completely different site if the colours were changed.


  49. Chry5ta1 October 28, 2009

    Well done guys!

    It looks great.

    It was time for the site to evolve.
