You can pry my Journey from my cold, dead, incredibly white hands.

Not being from Detroit, I found the statement "there is no South Detroit" confusing.
Okay, so obviously there is no place that is literally labelled "South Detroit", but the idea of a location not having a south is absolutely bonkers to me.
So taking a peek at the Detroit area on Google Maps, I can see that Campus Martius Park, where Woodward Ave and Michigan Ave meet is considered the central point of Detroit, and all areas below it are on a diagonal slant. Okay, so it doesn't have the same sort of far point as the north, east and south, but that still doesn't negate the fact that there is southbound section.

So taken to the literal idea that South is equally between east and west and the opposite direction of north, then "South Detroit" exists as the intersecting point of Civic Center Drive and Atwater St.

This pointless moment of over-anlysis is brought to you by the letter "bored" and the number "I think I'm just gonna smoke a bowl and relax".

broadsword: The theory is that no matter how good a party is, it can be made better with "Any Way You Want It" blasting out of a stereo.

The same goes for buttsex and "Entrance of the Gladiators"

Journey is just one of those bands that comes on the radio and instantly makes me change the station. I think it is Steve Perry. Can't stand him. Don't even know why.

I saw the current flavor of Journey at our state fair this year, after opening acts Loverboy and Pat Benatar. Journey was totally over the top and cheesy. Neal Schon never played 3 notes when 24 would do, and their Filipino front man channeled Steve Perry with eerie accuracy. It was completely ludicrous and they had the crowd eating out of the palms of their hands the entire time.

I think what the article misses is that the song evokes a deep if vague sense of nostalgia and captures a sense of yearning that's perfectly expressed by the slow buildup and payoff of the tune. Yes, it's cheesy and corporate and calculated, but no one cares after they've had a couple beers and the chorus finally comes in toward the end of the song. There's no way to put "Don't Stop Believin'" back in the bottle at this point; it's like drug-resistant herpes.

News Flash: America has moved from the big boombox to the little white earbuds. We can all vote with our personal listening device. Don't like what's on wherever you are, listen to something else.

Also, by all means, lets trash Journey over the deluge of overproduced and overedited junk that corporations churn out today. Yep, Journey truly is the lowest point of music.
