Didn't you mean to say "pofound"?  :D

I did look closely and thought your spelling weak, but now I see the weakness is more profound.   ;)

THEME:   none, but four triples
   
GOOD ONES:     
Short and sweet, e.g.   ADJs   
   
BTW:   
Wedding to-do list item   ORDER A LIMO [we order a cake and rent a limo, but I guess we order a rental]   
   
Haberdashery supply   TIE PINS [yes, and they sit at the bottom of jewelry boxes of old men around the country, so I'd add "once"]   
   
Employment org. of 1935   WPA [the 21st Century version was "shovel-ready jobs," but the president "says more in a minute then he will stand to in a month"] (Forgive the politics but not the Shakespeare.)   
   
What this puzzle lacked in clever clues it compensated for by tough ones.   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

I didn't say "proud." Look closer.

Richard Bailey is a Houston-based web designer and musician. He records under the name "Proem" and his website is Proemland. I'd love to know how he came up with the name. Is it the word that appeared in this puzzle or does his name mean something else?

Indeed.  Of what could I possibly be more proud?   8)

THEME:   both words of a two-word phrase can be substituted for by homonyms
   
GOOD ONES:    
Composer Dvorjak in hiding?  CHACHED CHECK [cashed and check = cashed check]   
Demands for quiet from downstairs tenant?  CEILING WHACKS [sealing and wax = sealing wax]   
Wildebeests [note spelling] slowing down?   BRAKING GNUS [breaking and news = breaking news]   
Proteges, e.g.   MAZDAS [this one stumped me for awhile]   
Cutting-edge professional?   SURGEON   
Dolphin, e.g.  MIAMIAN [like Mazda, it gives me pause --- and the animals may also be native to Miami shores]   
One of Kramden's hardy followers?   HAR [Ralph of "The Honeymooners" would say "hardy har-har" ironically.  Seems possible only for the Geritol crowd --- of which I am one]   
   
BTW:   
NAS, STU Sutcliffe, and DEPECHE Mode make up for HAR [I liked MOOD Indigo better both as a clue and as music], but nothing can atone for YTTRIA.   
   
ASSISI and CAPRI were happy reminders of a great vacation, especially Capri which I think is my favorite place visited, including all of Hawaii.   
   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D

Thus it is possible to read a prose proem.

THEME:   phrases with words that sound like a long A and spelled AY can change meaning, but not sound, by changing AY to EY
   
GOOD ONES:    
Otoman ruler's pier?   DOCK OF THE BEY   
Optimistic Spanish ruler?  REY OF HOPE   
   
BTW:   
Fixes, as a heel, perhaps   DARNS [any part of the sock is better to darn the the heel since the stitches will likely be felt --- as poor kids know]   
   
Easy kind of question   YES/NO [not if by "easy" it means more than short: Will the Yankees win the World Series?  Is the Ivy League worth the tuition?  Is there balm in Gilead?  Well, maybe the question is "easy" but the answer isn't.]   
   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D
