output (Step 3).  Right now I don't see anything in your 
linked stylesheets that address any of the classes found in the feed2js 
added elements.

Put in your stylesheet (or link a new one) with something like

p.rss-title {display:none}

(Warning, I didn't take a long or hard look at this, but after a quick 
glance this seems to be the problem.  Be careful, since it appears the 
"description" of the channel is marked as a rss-item character, so if you 
decide you don't want to hide the channel info you'll want to style it by 

rss-title rss-item.
