skinnySamurai is a theme for Emacs 24. It started as port and combination of the ChubyNinja Sublime Text 2 theme by jturcotte (https://github.com/jturcotte/SublimeChubyNinja)
but has diverged significantly.
The white on red "VISUAL" in the middle of the statusline is a "hack" found in my evil-mode customizations. It is not included in the theme.
Ugly terminal colors
You need to "export" xterm-256color in your terminal/console/tmux/screen, etc.
