How do I filter my entire digital life into one personal domain?

I'm merging my digital life into one conglomerate website. I have a wordpress blog, tumblr, twitter page, blogspot blog, and a page for my music project being joined on my new domain. Can I do this without making my site busy or ugly?

I've spent countless hours working on this and find myself reaching for a 'reset design' button.
Right now I have a minimalist landing page with links to everything
i.e. 'blog' 'twitter' 'tumblr' 'music' 'non-profit'
'blog' goes to www.domain.com/blog and uses the same CSS as www.domain.com/
I didn't like the look of the java/flash widgets embedded in my site,
so right now the twitter and tumblr feeds appear in plain text in their respective locations inside the jurisdiction of my stylescripts.
I have considered linking directly to current locations i.e. 'twitter' would go to www.twitter.com/userID, but I feel like that is ungratitude for the power that having my own domain brings.
Also with that, things are brought out of 'Zen' slightly as some parts of the site are hosted on the domain (blogs, music) and others are hosted elsewhere. Of course the layout changes on every not-my-domain page.
I have considered using some type of frame that opens the new site within my site, but I'm clueless to the logistics, and am not sure that that would improve my current situation at all.
Is there hope for my site?
Many thanks in advance!
I didn't realize that this was such an emotional website problem. Maybe this should go into human relations :P
