it's cool that you like the minimal look too!
my profile was pretty easy to make honestly. i didn't know anything about profile coding and managed to do it in a day after searching around the forums a bit.
basically, i've made all panels transparent and removed their headers. i then made my background a pure black image (just one i found from googling black wallpaper) and set the background of my about section to be a GIF (the dogs barking - that's my "about" panel). i use the "details" panel as my info/about panel now. i just changed the text colour in it to white so that it showed up against the black background.
lastly is the media player, which i just hid using a string of code that's really easy to find on the forums/on google.
if you need help w specific stuff i can shoot you a pm n go more into detail if that'd be more helpful
