I'm liking where this is headed typographically. I'll add a full-sized attachment when I feel comfortable with the overall direction. The grid is four columns at 220px per column and 40px per gutter -- this equals 1000px across the board. Also, the shot is not at 100% scale.
I did derive some inspiration from Joni Korpi's site as far as some of the arrangement, but the end result will be quite different from his work – it's funny because some of my earlier comps reflected a direction similar to this one. Certain minds think alike.
For those interested, the typefaces in use are PT Sans (for the h1 / article title), PT Sans Caption (for the h4s / "Posted On", etc.) & Tisa (for the body copy).

Nice hierarchy, Dalton.
I always liked the openness of PT Sans Caption. It works well in small amounts. Looks good here. Perhaps you could consider dropping the h4 text size a notch and opening up the line-spacing to make the capitals breath a little more?
Yeah, I haven't really resolved to a particular vertical rhythm yet but I'll be playing around with that soon enough to ensure everything has appropriate breathing space to provide for a richer reading experience.
I appreciate your recommendations and attention to detail! Also, I signed up for the Typecast beta. Very cool concept.
