DJ MILF and the Girls of Summer

When you were a little kid, summer ruled. Summer was the best. Summer meant walking barefoot to the pool across the street, or letting a popsicle melt all over your hands and then running around in a sprinkler to wash it off. In a bathing suit. With a dog!

Then you got a little older, and it was about coming home from college and sitting up all night comparing notes with your high school friends. Or taking your first road trip with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Or, even if your summer job sucked, knowing that hey, in September, it was see-ya.

But as we know, despite the proximity of Barton Springs, summer for grown-ups is not all snow cones and swimming holes. It most often seems to involve freezing all day in a too-air-conditioned office, scorching your forearm on the gear shifter when you get in the car, walking across endless Costco parking lots, and battling the occasional bedbug infestation.

That’s why our appreciation for summer is mostly about nostalgia. And that’s why I adored our own DJ MILF’s summertime mix last night at DDPP, sprinkled as it was with hits both icy cool and scorching hot that I remember floating over the radio waves from summers past – alongside instant-nostalgia hits like Katy Perry’s “Fireworks.” All in all, not a bad way to kick off the summer.
