Journey

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on July 1, 2009

Here we go again.  First we had a Boston, now a Journey.  I guess I will have to save room on the blog for Kansas, Triumph, Rush and Lynard Skynyrd.

It’s obvious to me that people just don’t say shit out loud before they go and stick a name on their kids.  And don’t give me that , “Oh, but it’s beautiful” shit either.  Have you ever had someone say to you, “I like the band Journey.” and you said, “Did you say the word ‘journey’?  Wow — that sure is a beautiful word.”?  No — no you fucking haven’t.

Put down the glass pipe, Mom.  This is a fucking horrible name for a child.

Maybe a horrible name for a child, but, in my opinion, the band kicks (kicked) ASS.
Oh, wait, this site isn’t for bands, is it?
Darn.

Totally agree. Faithfully is one of the top 10 songs ever, probably.

It just HAS to be. And, if it’s not, then it ought to damn well be.
What you’ll see (I’m surprised I haven’t seen it yet) are girls named “Faithfully.” No, can’t leave “Faith” alone, they’ve got to make it into an adverb.

Highway run, into the midnight sun…

What’s worse — a girl named Faithfully or a boy named Steve Perry (then his last name). Tough call for me. I say the girl — but the boy’s parents should be clubbed as well.

I think a child of either gender named “Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin'” trumps them all.

Yeah — their name is shit too, so I decided to spell it like like it should be spelled.

Actually, the original name of Lynyrd Skynyrd was Leonard Skinner, after a gym teacher that nobody liked. They changed it to avoid lawsuits.

It’s bad enough, but I just saw “Jurnee” on another website. I guess we should have expected that.
