I'm an organizational creative jill-of-all-trades and I might be losing my job. I'm updating my resume and, coincidentally, I need help creatively organizing it. Help, AskMe?

The company I work for might be folding soon. I need to get my resume together.
In the past 20 years I've had 9-to-5 jobs and freelance projects in radio, television, gaming, music, photography, web development, project management, journalism, internet and the non-profit world. I've worn a ton of different hats. I am very much a generalist. I have an associates degree in radio broadcasting, but other than that, plenty of on-the-job and learn-on-my-own training and a few extension courses.
I don't want to rely on freelance work, I do want to find another full time job - which I think will require a resume I can put on a single sheet of paper.... right?
But my skills and experience are so numerous, varied, overlapping and generalized that if I put all the details, names, dates, places and references on paper, my resume would be several pages long and very confusing and boring.
Any suggestions on how I should proceed? Thanks AskMe.
(I'm thinking of using an about.me page as an online "calling card" to make initial contact - good plan, or...?)
