BOONE, NC– Realizing that he had forgotten his own headphones back at his apartment, App State student Kevin Jackson instead utilized his own internal screaming as a substitute for his music while on his morning walk to class.

“At first, I didn’t know if it would work, but then I walked by a girl talking on the phone and couldn’t hear a word she said!” Jackson excitedly told sources, astounded by his newly discovered technique for blocking out all unwanted noises from the outside world.

“I had no idea all this pent-up stress could actually do some good for me. All I heard from Doughton to Walker was ‘AHHHHHHHH’ and ‘FUUUUUUUUCK.’ Pretty efficient, if you ask me.”

At press time, Jackson was seen taking the long route home in an effort to release any last residual anger.
