comment How to not make my website have a “1990's” look
A very common practice for websites is to put main content on the left and secondary (or featured) content on the right rail. So I would not say that is specific to the oatmeal. However the general idea is not to just copy, but to copy and improve. What other things can you add over there that will help (be careful to not become too cluttered); maybe add your facebook like & feed, your artwork, ect. What I would recommend is make some of the graphics & layout changes first, see where you are at, then start messing with adding extra feature if need be.

No problem :) To answer your questions: Yes I was referring to the fonts in the thumbnails as well. It is fine to use a hand written looking font just find something more balanced. (just do a google search for comic sans typography to learn more). To compare it to the oatmeal: he uses a mixture of shapes & sizes. You will notice the left boxes are bigger than the ones on the right. This establishes a hierarchy of content on the page, and makes the page less generic. So on your site you might want to try this, add small boxes for your "most popular" to the right rail.
