Looking for Critiques

Was hoping some of you could give me some ideas on this layout, do you like, hate, love it? What makes you like, hate, love it? I personally like it, but I know my tastes don’t usually fall in the mainstream. What would you change, keep and so on? Any ideas/critiques would be fantastic. Thanks in advance.

I’m aware of the choppiness - see it anyway - and the way the masking makes some thing flicker at times…can you let me know if you are experiencing the same thing? And the preloader was thrown in - not going to keep it.
