	Likes good.  I like the traditional calendar layout, but yours has its  
merits, too.

	Nice.  I noticed a bug: after viewing one month, the posts don't update  
after going to another month.

	It might be nice to tie this in with taxonomy, too.

	I'm not sure if you wanted feedback on list.  Please let me know if you'd  
rather take this to your site.
