The title of this mix is taken from sort of a rant about summer by Bill Hicks. In his rant, he gets into how he hates going to the beach and seeing everybody sporting their tan skin and white teeth--his reason being, he can only don his white skin and tan teeth.

I actually love summer, in spite of the heat and the boredom that come with it. Things really started changing for me two summers ago, in 2006. It was the summer between my junior and senior years of high school, and a very meaningful time in my life. I found myself surrounded by all of these awesome people, among these being my current best friend, Chris, his schoolmate, Glaze, her boyfriend, Michael, and a few people I already knew: Andrew, Mike, Tim, and Kayla. We made the summer ours. We partied, we laughed, we did things that probably could have gotten us arrested--but it was all in good fun, and no one got hurt. Eventually, the group as a whole kind of grew apart, but I've found through the occasional reminiscing that the summer of 2006 lives on in all our memories as a very special time.

A majority of the songs on this mix are from that summer, but I decided to include a few from the summer of '07 as well (it was awesome, too).

Track 1 from Everything In Transit
Length: 00:02:58
Year: 2005
Track Description:
This is the song we all listened to when I drove a Monte Carlo. I didn't have a curfew, and all of my friends would break theirs, and we would drive around late into the night, looking for a swimming pool or a place to smoke. It's also the first song I ever heard my current best friend, Chris, singing. It holds many different meanings for me.

Even before I had a car, Pinback was a favorite of mine for road tripping. Once, four of us were loaded in my car for a trip to Dallas (myself, Chris, and two girls, Amanda and Brianna, who were good friends of mine the first two years of high school). This song was part of that soundtrack.

Another good pre-party song. I have a weird friend named Tim. He can play pretty much any song by ear, on any musical instrument, it seems. This was one of his frequent pieces in summer '06. He was always jamming on this song trying to impress me. I was impressed.

Track Description:
This song reminds me a lot of Glaze. I met her even before I met Chris, but we really started hanging out during the summer of 2006. I told her, "I think you'd really like this song!" She did. It was common to find us dancing to it in the front seat.

The song for when you're on your way to pick up your friend, who's on his break from his shitty minimum wage job (where, unbeknownst to you, you will soon work). It's 5 PM or so, and the sun is blaring and unbearable, but you can't wait. Summer '07.

Track 0 from Future Perfect

Track Description:
Reminds me of a really strange day; in particular, a group experiment with some cough medicine (which, in retrospect, is just funny). A friend that we saw regularly, but who wasn't quite part of our regular group, had a really crazy time with this song. He listened to it for days after.

Track Description:
I used to pretend I hated Saves the Day, back when I was 12 and everyone in the Weezer chatroom liked them. Turns out, I love this band, and for me, this song is very similar to "Drunken Butterfly" in that it reflects a lot of my mixed feelings about love in the summer of '06.

An important song for me. It symbolizes what came to be for Chris and me during the summer that changed everything. For a week straight, he stayed at my house, day and night, and didn't talk to his mom the entire time. But she didn't seem to mind, which was awesome. And we were just having too much fun to care.

Track Description:
Around the same period as the previous song, we had taken to drinking a lot of wine. It seemed classy to do so, even if it was a $10 jug from Wal Mart. I remember hearing this song several times in a drunken stupor. Kind of brings back childhood. I mean, am I right fellas?

Track 8 from Rubberneck

Track Description:
I spent a great deal summer '06 trying to win Chris's friendship and heart, and eventually did. This song was playing as I drove him home the first time we ever hung out that spring, as well when I drove him home on the last day of summer. The words amaze me. We've always shared a dream of slipping away to Mexico. This song represents the clashing of a dream and the reality.
