In general, I'm going to start rethinking a lot of the site-wide design, and would love your continued ideas (off-the-wall or otherwise). 

As for the sidebar, the reason for it there (as opposed to on top) is to put less clutter between the search box and the results. On bigger monitors the sidebar can be off to the side and forgotten about (or turned off) if never used. That is harder if it is right by the box or in between the box and the results. That said, I'm really open to moving/changing/destroying it, etc., but I'm going to think about it a bit holistically so it might be a little while.
