Critique or advice on these font pairings?

Hey guys! I'm still very "green" at web design, and especially typography, so to exercise those skills, I whipped up this quick little demo. The live link is at http://mikeronewman.github.io/typography-tests/ . It's just a few font pairings and color palettes to experiment and practice things like hierarchy. It's on github at https://github.com/mikeronewman/typography-tests too so feel free to fork it and show me what you can whip up as well!

Happy internet-ing!

I think they are too conflicting, it doesn't flow smoothly. I'd try to use a larger/bolder version of one font in your headings and the same font in a lighter weight/smaller size for the body. Something else you can try in addition is to have the headings in a color and the body in black, or medium to dark gray. I think the size contrast is really on target though.
