School's out for summer and it's time to start thinking about college... This week's film, OrangeCounty, is all about two things: One kid's obsessive mission to get into Stanford University, and the bright and sunny atmosphere of early-2000s SoCal pop-punk!
The soundtrack brings us radio singles from The Offspring and Foo Fighters (RIP Taylor Hawkins), as well as classic tracks from Californians Brian Wilson, Social Distortion, Phantom Planet, and... Yeah I guess we'll have to talk about Crazy Town too.
What this episode is really about is a chance for our hosts to reminisce about their high school careers, the things that pushed them to become writers, and the yearning for something greater than themselves. That's something we can all relate to, right?
