Steve is not happy

I had a dream a few nights ago that whenever anyone gets a Blue Screen of Death, technicians at Microsoft always scramble to read what it says so they can help fix the problem, but they are never able to finish reading it before the user shuts the computer down in frustration, so with the new version of Vista, they embedded an mp3 of “Faithfully” by Journey into the BSOD image, so that should it come up, users will wait until the song is over, out of respect for the heartfelt way in which Steve Perry is singing about life on the road, and this way the tech team can read the BSOD and figure out what the problem is.

To be clear: I have not had a BSOD in about four years, and I don’t think I’ve heard “Faithfully” in about that long either, but if this actually is a problem, I think this could work?

LOOK, ARE YOU FEELING IT:

And if this is not a problem that needs fixing, then Kacey O’Kelley, thank you for couple skating to this song with me in 1984.

I went to a lovely wedding this weekend where the musicians played arrangements of "Faithfully" and "Open Arms" before the ceremony started. It was even more soothing than the original, so I'd vote for acoustic, instrumental versions to play during the BSOD.

Acoustic "Open Arms"??

Yeah, maybe for a KERNEL PANIC RESULTING FROM AN INVALID MEMORY ADDRESS!!11!

also psst: if you haven't seen the video for "Faithfully" lately, you should watch the video:

Steve Perry's eyebrows arc up like warring ogoneks. (That's due to his sincerity?)
