Seen and Heard

Actually I'm cheating with this one, because I neither saw or heard this particular instance of "Public Journey" (which is what I'm officially nicknaming the magical occurrence of randomly hearing Journey music in public places), but it happened and there were pictures. Last week was student move in day at the university where I work, and apparently the university's ensemble band played "Don't Stop Believin'" in the lobby of one of the dorms to welcome the students and get them pumped up for the coming academic year.

This officially makes the university where I work the most awesome university in the USA--perhaps the world even. This even makes it cooler than my alma mater, which I thought could do no wrong. It should be mandatory that every school, whether it's a university or a primary school, have some sort of assembly in the mornings where "Don't Stop Believin'" is played at the end, right before the start of classes, to get the students pumped up. I guarantee you that if this happened, grades and student behavior would improve, drug use would decrease, and bullies would be rendered obsolete because this song has the fuckin' power to improve the human condition and bring people together.

Spread the word, people! Let's start our journey to bring Journey to our schools (see what I did there?).
