Journey. it’s more than just a band.

I had to stop by Dick Blick’s Art store to pick up some materials for silk screening this past Saturday. As I walked in, I heard the sweet melodies of Journey playing over the loudspeaker. I strolled over to the silk screening section to investigate photo emulsions.

As I stood, perusing the options, a store dude, Jonathan, approached.

Jonathan: Hello!
Mike D: hi!
Jonathan: How are you doing today?
Mike D: quite well, you?
Jonathan: Well, being that Journey is playing, I’m doing awesome.
Mike D (in partial awe): YES! I… I totally agree!
Jonathan: Journey makes everything better.
Mike D: Yes! Absolutely!

so then we talk briefly about silk screening and I go about my business. I finally make my choice and move up to the counter. Jonathan and co-worker Kayleigh(sp?) are talking more about Journey.

Mike D: You know, there’s something about Journey. No one does not like Journey.
Jonathan: Agreed.
Mike D: Once I was traveling with a friend who was only partially okay with Journey, and there was a rock block on the radio. So we heard two journey songs in a row. Then, I switched stations to find yet ANOTHER rock block of journey. 4 more Journey tunes! We got 6 songs in a row!
Kayleigh: That’s awesome!
Mike D: It was great!
Kayleigh to Jonathan: there’s a karaoke bar in Prospect that has a Huge selection of songs. And they totally have Journey. We should really go.
Jonathan: Yes we should.

Jonathan then turned to me.

Jonathan: You should come too.
Mike D: I’m totally game! Yes.
Jonathan: Leave your e-mail address, I’ll send you an e-mail.

Once again, Journey has brought people together.

What an awesome band.

    oh oh oh by the way, can I have two breakfast t-shirts? one for me and one for dwane? I wear small. Dwane wears the largest size possible. L is probably too small. Do you have XL?

    Be careful Mike D, it sounds like Jonathan is trying to hook up with you.

    Here is an amazing fact you might not know:

    There exists a band that exclusively covers Journey and Bon Jovi songs! Can this awesomeness be true? Indeed. They are called Bon Journey.

    Check them out here:

    In French that would be “good travels” or even just “good journey”.
    A mere coincidence?

    “Good Journey” is redundant.
