Absynthe is a dark, mysterious theme that utilizes natural textures and surfaces to create a feeling of depth and high contrast. Absynthe utilizes a fully-widgetized sidebar and also has a unique Last.fm footer and Twitter widget design.
This theme utilizes the Last.fm plug-in by Jeroen Smeets (if you don’t have it installed, don’t worry, your site won’t break, it just won’t show the Last.fm stuff) and this theme looks wicked awesome when you use Twitter for WordPress by Ricardo Gonzalez.
As mentioned above, this theme is licensed under the GNU General Public License. As always, if you encounter any bugs or issues with this theme, please let me know.
