    In time for my high school reunion (thanks guys), Van Halen is reuniting (kind of). How far through the scheduled tour dates before Eddie Van Halen wraps his picking hand around David Lee Roth's throat? Any guesses?

    • 10 Comments

    This is the part where I post something about college football and relate it to my work. Because college football is coming and I can't wait. Looks like I'll get to 3 games this year thanks to my dad. You know the inevitable Heather-at-a-football game...

    I'm pretty fascinated by messaging to different audiences by culture or geography. It's the feeling when you see an international advertisement (by international, I mean non-US...please indulge my American self-involvement for a moment) that makes it...
