Don’t Stop Believin’

This week is my wife’s birthday. She loves the music of Journey. She also loves most things having to do with singing & dancing. This includes, but is not limited to the TV show Glee, the video game Sing Star, and countless cover bands. She lost her !@#$ when Glee performed Journey.

A coworker of mine owns a part of a local club that just so happens to have Journey cover band Frontiers playing. And he had a bunch of free tickets to donate. Sometimes cubicles work out!

So, this weekend, I’ll be at a Journey cover band concert with 6 screaming beautiful women from Jen’s flag football league. Wine coolers and pina coladas watch the !@#$ out! Tonight the ladies (many of whom have strong allegiance Ohio State football) are having girls night with Sing Star to practice for said cover band…. and I get left alone for poker night outdoors on the new back deck. Life’s tough that way some times.

In the spirit of the weekend; Don’t Stop Believin’.

God, I really wanted to hate this video, but, ok, I’ll say it. It’s cheesy 80s music. It’s college. It’s people not giving a @#!$ and just enjoying themselves. It’s pretty freakin’ awesome.


  1. That was just about the most cheerful thing ever. And man, I totally want to be at the Ohio State Union–that place is gorgeous! I’m totally bummed I’m missing Frontiers…I love me some Journey. You guys will have a wonderful time tomorrow night!

  2. We’ll miss you, Erin. Should be a great time!

    But hey, maybe you can start a Flash mob at work 😉

  3. Great post. My wife’s birthday this weekend too, happy birthday to yours.

  4. Hi Matt! Happy birthday to your wife as well. What did you you guys end up doing?

  5. I loved this video. It makes me think of my daughter, who is a UF fan, but they lots of activities kind of like this:~)

    I also like Journey. One of my favorite songs was “Open Arms”…today when I listen to it, it sounds a bit sappy, but I did love it and would turn the radio very loud when came on in the car and sing along with the song:~)

    I also send a belated happy birthday wish to your wife. I hope the “Journey” concert was as much fun as you made sound:~)

  6. Hi Sara!

    I have to be honest, I don’t like Journey. But I do love it when my wife (and her friends) are happy. And they loved the concert so I, of course, had a great time!

    The opening act was a Cold Play coverband and that was much more my speed. One of the girls asked about my favorite bands and I didn’t really have a reply. ‘It’s based more on my moods,’ I explained. However, I confessed to a prediliction towards bands that had heroine addictions (Depeche Mode, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails) – the lyrics always seem that much more powerful to me. Weird, I know.

    I’ll pass along the birthday wishes so thank you! (She’s a former Gator, too.)
