At a quick glance, the blog appears to look the same in IE8 as it does in Firefox.  Maybe you can give a hint for what part doesn't look the same.

Hi Ben its IE6 Im using. Its mainly the size of the text that seems to be screwed up, thats the first main concern as its unreadable in IE6

in your stylesheet:

#{
	font-size: 80%;
	text-align:center
}

 looks like you are missing a selector and IE6 is breaking on it. There may be others but that's the first I see.

The youtube video is obviously not working and I do not know if that is because youtube no longer supports IE6 or if your plugin does not.

For the rest of the styles you might want to try a style reset. You can try Eric Meyer's reset. Drop it in at the top of your style sheet.

I really do not think this will fix it but give it a try anyway.

Wrap everything inside your form tags with a div and align the text for that div left. This is a common IE6 fix for text alignment and is usually called for in a conditional stylesheet.

<form runat="server">
<div id="container" style="text-align: left">
<!--all your content here-->
</div>
</form>

...or... as much as I hate to alienate all those poor **** that cannot for whatever reason upgrade their IE version:

Use a jscript to let them know that your site needs a modern browser to be viewed correctly. There are quite a few already available on the Internet. I believe your site is a perfect candidate for these tactics because even after you get your alignment issues corrected the videos wont show and your user still wont get the experience you are after.
