My name is Pimplomat, and I neglect my blog

There's a person with the same first name as Long Division who reminded me the other night that I haven't been updating my blog. She spoke the truth, as you can tell.

When I get back from my upcoming trip that starts tomorrow, I'll get back on the daily posting wagon.

Handshake? Good.

When did Eddie Van Halen start composing porn film music?

From the recent AVN Awards (propably dont' want to look at that site at work, unless you get to work from home, you lucky bastard):

Best Music - Sacred Sin (Ninn Worx), Eddie Van Halen and Loren Alexander

Oh, here is the story.

Eddie, you've just upped your cool factor by one.

Some stories for discussion, if you wish, all from The New York Times.

I want to be a master
Friday, January 05, 2007
It's that time of year again when I start thinking of getting my master of arts degree in English.

Since I work full time, I'd love to find one that can be completed online. I've searched and searched, and I've come up with one program. At Morehead State University in Kentucky. Online gradute program in English.

This looks to be a pretty good program, but what I want to know is why is there only one? It seems like English would be very easy to teach online. Nowadays, people can get upper level degrees in business, engineering and nursing. NURSING! Surely, teaching English has to be easier than teaching nursing online.

If anyone knows of more online graduate English programs out there, please let me know.

I've already taken the first step and purchased a GRE for Dummies book.

Thrown a bone
Thursday, January 04, 2007
Geoff Johnston gave my band some recognition in this week's Dallas Observer. He names us as one of five local bands to look forward to in 2007 in his article, 5 x 2 = 10.

Being up front: I know Geoff. I've known him for almost 10 years. He started writing for the Observer last year and he had a personal rule that he wouldn't write about his friends' bands. I think it's a good rule; still, it's nice to see him relent a little and do the same thing other writers at that paper have been practicing for years.

Here's what he wrote.

Ashburne Glen

Full disclosure: Awhile back we used to work at the Borders on Lovers Lane and Greenville Avenue with Jason Hensel, who until recently was the sole driving force behind mope-folk band Ashburne Glen. He swears up and down that it's not a solo or singer-songwriter project, but that gloomy blend of Joy Division and Elliott Smith (with requisite minor-chord atmosphere and faux Brit accenting to match, natch) is pure Hensel. For years Ashburne Glen struggled with varying lineups and juggled various players, until a core unit finally materialized in 2006. Roommate/drummer Eric Grubbs and bassist Joshua Warr (Blackheart Society) brought fistfuls of thunder to accompany the blistering fretwork of Lance Pilgrim, singer-songwriter/guitarist for the Shapes and longtime OG ("Original Glenster"). Hensel may have had to relinquish some of the Glen's more frail and dainty qualities, but in return he gets to front a pretty slammin' rock outfit that's starting to build some substantial steam.
